Highly recommend by Liam 5 star Trip Advisor Reviews
Our experience as a family of 8 adults and 3 children was more than we could have ever expected from Hill farm .
As a returned guest ( after Mick and Julie acquired hill farm ) was a completely Remarkable transformation, both in the welcome from both Mick and Julie , the cleanliness of the cottages was immaculate, the regular chats that Mick and Julie gladly engage in whenever they see their welcomed guests at any time of day or evening! Not only is this the perfect Location and accommodation for families with children of all ages ( from 1 -18 years old ) with the pool and a games room That will most definitely cater for all Ages and in my experience adults too with the pool table , table football, table tennis
And far more for the little people and again it is immaculately clean and spotless.
The invitation to feed the animals with mick and Julie is a must for all ages ( from
Sheep to goats to chickens and ducks , rabbits, Guinea pigs) the list is endless – it is a very welcoming morning activity for Children and grown ups! Plus they sell fresh eggs which contributes well to any brunch!! This location offers the luxury of being Remote and amazing woodland walks to being accessible to the treasures of both Devon and Cornwall ( none of these are more than 40 mins away ) Bude, Croyde, Clovelly, basically anywhere on the north Devon coast !
Mick and Julie also give you the most comprehensive guide on their handbook to the highlights in the area and the best places to eat. Including the best Chinese I’ve ever had !!!
We will most definitely be visiting again!
A five star review for both location , accommodation and hosts – mick and Julie !

5 star Review Josie July 2022
Friendly, fun and welcoming
This is the 4th time we have been back, and we all still love it. Kids (now 10 and 8) still enjoy feeding the animals, the pool and games room. Julie and Mick are very welcoming hosts and their love of animals is infectious. Would thoroughly recommend.
Perfect week at the farm June 2022
A perfect week at Hill Farm with all you could ask for in a beautiful furnished cottage. There are 5 cottages in total and we stayed in the 2 bedroomed Landcross.
Hosts Mike and Julie are wonderful hosts and certainly make you feel welcome. The swimming pool is certainly an excellent feature to have with the bonus that you get to book by the hour so you can be assured that you have your own space to swim/play!
Animal feeding is the morning routine if you have young children (although let’s face it you are never too old to feed the chickens are you !). You may even get to meet a few famous ones named after rock stars!
You do not have to be a family with kids to stay here, if you chose to you wouldn’t even know they had animals as they are away from the cottages. Great Torrington is a 20m walk away as is the Tarka Trail and the Puffing Billy is certainly a welcoming watering hole. Local pub in Weare Giffard (the Cyder Press) is a great local but beware as it’s a 2 mile climb back.
Just one thing to be wary of…Micks sheep jokes. They are truly awful ! 😂
