Jenny and Philip are amazing hosts! They certainly know how to provide you with the utmost comfort and everything you could possibly need in this home-from-home accommodation. Even free WiFi!

We stayed in ‘The Dairy’, a 1 bed, ground level, self-contained holiday unit with our own front and back doors, a courtyard with bench, plus a further sitting area outside the front door with table and 2 chairs. Pretty planted tubs are nearby in this huge cobbled farmyard which also provides plenty of parking!

There are several stables/grain stores (?) which are to be converted to 1 or 2 bedroom s/c holiday homes in the future and we will be keeping our eye on this as it’s a fabulous place for family get-togethers where you can still have privacy . You can have a cooked breakfast in the farmhouse (extra charge) or ‘mine hosts’ have supplied you with an inclusive Continental breakfast each morning for two. This includes various cereals, milk, sugar, fruit, tea, coffee, butter, jams. Also supplied are kitchen rolls, dishcloths, tea towels, bathroom towels, toilet rolls, tissues, all bed linen, plus a modern fridge, microwave, kettle and toaster! Flat screen tv in a handy spot by a small dining table! Each morning the apartment is cleaned, bins emptied etc. An incredible find….and we will certainly book to enjoy more comfortable days and nights there! It’s so easy to get to the East Devon coast and the beautiful town of Exeter in a very short time. The nearby Exeter Quay is a lovely spot for arts and crafts shopping, an antique centre, a pub selling home cooked meals plus several other coffee shops and cafes. The lovely little town of Topsham is approx 10 minutes away where you can visit a multi-storey Antique Centre by the Quay and lots of exciting finds in the many charity shops (I’m hooked on those!). Visit the pub – The Puffing Billy in Exton, about 7 or 8 minutes away. Gorgeous food, great staff!

Hosts at Courtbrook Farm, Jenny and Philip, have been for many years in Clyst St. George and know of lots of local information & recommendations – there are many maps and leaflets for you to ponder over.
