Upcott Farm



Our third visit and each is better than the last, there really is no place like Upcott Farm.

Glenn, Becca, Oscar, Ellie, Archie and Will xxx – Aug 17

A truly fantastic place, you have created a really relaxing holiday home.  The weather could have been better but we still had a lovely time.  Highlights and recommendations for others:

-       Broomhill Sculptures Park – The children loved running around here playing hide and seek.

-       Arlington Court NT – fantastic circular walk with children’s play area in the woods.

-       Post tea-time rock pooling at Woolacombe beach

-       Lunch at the Rock

Thanks for the yummy cake. We will return next year.

Sally, Tom, Georgina and Freddie – Aug 17

A gorgeous place to stay, thank you.  A wonderful week has been had by all, despite some iffy weather. Exciting surf lessons at Croyde, tasty fish and chips in Braunton and lots of cycling around the lanes.  Thank you, Daisy, for the local ice –cream knowledge and the good times in the sea. 

Callum, Jonathan and Jo – Jul 17

What a great place to celebrate two family birthdays!  We couldn’t have asked for more – except maybe a little more sunshine!

Some of the highlights:

-       Curry at Barricane Beach

-       Surf lesson at Lyndon Wake Surf School

-       Lunch at the Rock Inn

-       Beautiful beaches matched with beautiful accommodation

-       Trampoline

-       Sitting out all together in the evenings sipping wine in a beautiful setting

Thank you so much Sarah ad Ben for being so welcoming.

The Tennants and Shaptons – Jul 17

What you have created here at Upcott Farm is truly special.  The Calfshed is beautifully decorated and furnished creating an oasis of calm.  So relaxing listening to the sound of birdsong and the trickling stream.  We visited Broomhill Sculpture Park, had a Sri Lankan curry from the little hut at Barricane Beach, and visited some stunning local beaches, Saunton Sands and dunes, Baggy Point.   Thank you for the warm welcome and delicious cake.  We hope to return.

Karen and Mark – Jun 17

We had a wonderful few days despite the wet weather!  Having such a bright airy and comfortable refuge from the rain really made all the difference.  And the sun came out on our final day so Charlie got his first taste of paddling in the sea and was most annoyed to be taken away!  Lovely lunch stop at Sandleigh tea rooms and the staff at the Rock Inn were incredibly warm and friendly.

Anna, Iain and Charlie – May 17

What a beautiful place in beautiful surroundings. Couldn’t fault a thing!

We have loved being here and look forward to seeing more of Braunton in the near future!

Thank you for a fantastic, relaxing week.

Gary, Louise and Nerds – May 16

What a fantastic weekend we’ve had. The farm is beautiful and we lucked out with the weather. Did some fabulous walks – Saunton Sands and Baggy Point were our favourites.

Can’t wait to come back.

Adam, Sara and Sofia – Apr 16

A wonderful haven of peace and light, perfect to recharge the batteries. The Lambshed is beautifully done and superbly equipped. It was our first time in North Devon – we’ll definitely be back – we enjoyed the rock pools at Croyde and Saunton, walks around Morte Point, cycling along the Tarka Trail, fish and chips from Squires, the Kings Arms in Georgeham, but probably best of all, just staying in and cooking a nice meal and enjoying a late breakfast on the sunny terrace.

Thanks for everything!

Maya, Alex and Elis

‘I loved it here’ Elias. – Apr 16

We had a great time!!

Thank you and congratulations for making this place so beautiful. The ace complex is gorgeous, the little stream running in the garden, the colours and the style that you have selected to furnish the place: it is all so perfect! We deeply enjoyed our stay and thank you again for giving us the chance to have the perfect place to stay in such a nice area.

Thank you also for accepting our dog!  We really hope to be back

Sandra and Ver – Jan 16

A perfect place to have a family celebration for Jo’s 30th birthday in our favourite area in North Devon!!

We found the Lambshed a great place to relax in superb luxury and hope to come back again.

Jo, Rob,and Ava; Kevin and Tina; James and Tara from‘The Cotswolds’ – Nov 15

Thank you for a lovely stay, a great opportunity to walk the hills and relax. We hope to be back.

Julie and John X – Oct 15

A great holiday in a wonderful house, a lot of sunshine – just a good time!

Cristin, Julius, Valentine, Sophie – Sep 15

We have never visited Devon before, so it was an extra special trip for us.

We spent a wonderful week here with friends in the Calfshed and it has been amazing. The Lambshed is without doubt the most stylish and comfortable holiday home we have ever stayed in. It is beautiful and very well equipped as well, nothing has been left out or not thought of. The children loved spending a fantastic morning with Matt and Lou doing forest craft and learning all about the wildlife and survival techniques at Chapelwood.

We loved all the beaches we visited but the best for surfing with the children (7 of them) was Saunton Sands as it was very safe. We had some lovely walks on Putsborough and Croyde as well with a visit to the café at the end.

The King’s arms in Georgeham was our favourite for dinner and the kids loved pizza from the mobile oven ‘Stoned’ in Croyde.

It has been the most amazing week, great weather and great fun, and we very much hope to return to this little corner of paradise.

Thank you Ben and Sarah for being fantastic hosts and for the delicious lemon cake.

Glenn, Becs, Oscar, Ellie, Archie, and William. Xxx – Aug 15

Had a wonderful week in the Calfshed. Weather been lovely and had some wonderful days down on Saunton Beach. Walked for miles throwing the ball for Molly, collecting shells and watching the amazing tide disappear far out!

Would recommend the walk along the beautiful river and waterfalls from Watersmeet to Rockford. Had a gorgeous sunny walk and scenery spectacular. Good cream tea in the idyllic National Trust Tea Rooms.

Upcott Farm is beautiful, we all found it a tranquil idyll with its calming décor and beautiful home from home touches.

Many, many happy memories of a beautiful week in a beautiful place.

Tracy, Martin, Sophie, Jake and ‘Molly’ – Jul 15

Thank you again for a lovely stay in your gorgeous barn.

The Gibbons x – Jul 15

Amazing time at Upcott Farm that we will keep for all times, as the most lovely memories!!!

Jul 15

We’ve had a lovely stay here in the Lambshed, not only is it stunning in appearance but one of the most practical and well equipped self-catering properties we’ve stayed in. I like to cook while away and the kitchen had everything you need.

The herb planters in the courtyard are a great idea – able to have fresh mint tea everyday.

We’ve also been lucky enough with the weather to enjoy dining outside in the evening – it’s a lovely space!

A few of the things we’ve done and enjoyed:

·      Take a drive to Lynmouth, a pretty coastal town.

·      Evening stroll around Ilfracombe to see the Verity Statue and enjoy a meal at ‘The Quay’ – Lucky to sea a great sunset.

·      Castle Hill Gardens have a wonderful formal garden and beautiful country walks around the magnificent house. Stop on the way out for tea and homemade cake at the ticket office.

·      Arlington Court – Another great place to walk or simply sit and contemplate in the sunshine and take in the view.

·      Fremington Quay Café – Great fresh fish dishes and I can recommend a toasted cheese scone with cream cheese and chutney. Then walk or cycle it off along the Tarka Trail (Bike hire next to the café)

Thank you to Ben and Sarah for a warm welcome, great cake and a lovely property

Katherine, Matthew, Stanley and Mabel – Jun 15

A wonderful gift of a weekend!

Thank you.

The Burrs – Jun 15

We have had a wonderful time exploring North Devon – and love the Lambshed, the décor, the facilities, the position!

How lucky are Ben, andSarah to call Upcott ‘home’.

Alistair, Angie, Dave, Annie, Janice and John – May 15

Had a wonderful stay!

Loved eating at Riverside, at One, and the French Restaurant on the corner in town.

Unexpected little gem – Hartland Abbey – ½ hour away. Take a walk to the beach from the abbey. Beautiful scenery.

Amy,  Tallahassee, Florida

Marnie, Tuscaloosa, Alabama – May 15

Wow. I am so thankful to the wonderful collaboration between you guys and the White Company. The only other ‘thing’ I’ve ever won was Au$10 at Bingo when I was 12 – this prize blew that one out of the water!

Thank you for having us in your wonderful Lambshed, Upcott Farm is a very special place, and a lovely one to come back to.

Kora, Darren and Emmy,  Lisa Jonny, Scarlet and Barney – Apr 15

What an amazing transformation from when we first saw the farm. How cleverly you have created such a haven for us to enjoy. Well done Ben and Sarah. Whilst you were seeing in the beauty of the World, we were sharing the joy of this idyllic abode.

Welcome home.

The Rodger Clan.

Rae, Anne, Jody, Amy, Peter, Wessie, Simon, Dylan and Louis – Mar 15

A beautiful home for the week! Absolutely gorgeous place to be for a very memorable Christmas. We couldn’t have asked for more.

We will be back for sure.

The Browns and The Doyles! Xxx – Christmas 14

It’s all been said – wonderful, carefully thought out bolt-hole with easy access to bracing beaches and countryside. These two cottages have obviously provided a lot of happiness to lots of families.

Thank you.

Susan and David – Oct 14

Absolutely gorgeous place – and we’re so happy we were here in the cake era!

Jenny, Art, Sophie and Esmie – Sep 14

We have loved staying in your beautiful place. The Calfshed is such a pleasure to stay in and also so lovely and clean. Putsborough beach was our favourite and our boys (6 and 4) tried body boarding for the first time and loved it! We will be back.

Steve, Flip, Otis and Rafferty - Aug 14

Once again a fab week. Despite the gloomy forecast the Devon sun shore through every day – lucky us! Third year in the Calfshed and it’s still as good as ever. Latest addition to the family (Henry the Springer Spaniel) thoroughly enjoyed the fallen apples from the trees which much resembled his beloved tennis balls!! Looking forward to next year already!

Mike, Clare, Charlotte, Flora. X Gus and Henry - Aug 14

We had such an amazing time here this week as we learnt to surf and had an amazing time body boarding and would love to come back next year!

Edwards and Mahoney family - Aug 14

Thank you for a lovely holiday, joining our grandchildren playing in your orchard and on the beach

Paul and Patricia - Jul 14

Wonderful, Thank you! Thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Upcott Farm it’s absolutely beautiful. Poppy the dog loved it too!

Stephen, Becky, Lucy and Poppy - Jun 14

A massive thank you for a brilliant week, we couldn’t have enjoyed ourselves more. We particularly loved Putsborough Beach with great rock pools and café, best cream-tea ever at Sandleigh, takeaway pasties and ice-creams at Woolacombe, great food at the Kings Arms Georgeham, and the Thatch in Croyde, but most of all….simply being at Upcott! The weather was (mainly!) gorgeous and we were able to eat outside, soak up the sun and our little daughter Myla absolutely LOVED the chickens, and being able to play in the lovely grounds. We loved it!!.

Zoe, Jamie, Myla and Grandma  - May 14

Thank you so much for this wonderful place. It is so beautiful. There is beauty in every detail. Just perfect! We spent wonderful days here relaxing, reading, sleeping, going for long walks along the beach and just enjoyed the peace and quiet of this lovely place. It has everything we were looking for and we will definitely be back! We really felt very much at home and don’t really want to leave…! See you soon!

Sarah and Anya - Nov 13

Brilliant holiday!!! The Calfshed was a wonderful place to stay in. We had the best walk ever along Mortehoe….even the sun shined! Another walk to Baggy Point, National Trust tea shop was scrum my.  Sunday lunch at the Kings Arms was delicious. We loved feeding the chickens and the two ducks. We’d love to stay here again soon because it was very quiet and just a lovely place to be. Thank you (the lemon cakes was yummy!)

Rebecca Hyde and my Mum and Dad - Oct 13

We have had a wonderful stay at the Calfshed. The barn is decorated beautifully and we’ve loved pretending it was ours for 5 days! We’ve had some lovely walks along the beach from Woolacombe, a delicious dinner at 11 The Quay, in Ilfracombe. Braunton had a good butcher and a cute shop for knick knacks. We will definitely be looking to come back, possibly with the whole family to rent both barns. Thank you

Melissa and Thomas - Oct 13

Thank you CALFSHED for a wonderful anniversary weekend. We have felt very relaxed in beautiful surroundings, and eaten excellent food. Kings Arms, Damien Hirst & The Olive. High recommended. We will be here again next year with our daughter! Thanks again

Suky and Dean - Sep 13

Your place is amazing and so well thought out. Juliette loved seeing the hens and ducks. This certainly is a little slice of heaven. Hope to come back one day.

Graham and Samantha, George and Audrey, Joanne and Juliette - Sep 13

What a wonderful place! We will be back.

Justine, Mike, Paul and Kathryn - Sep 13

We have enjoyed a wonderful week at the Lambshed. You have put so much thought and love into this beautiful property – absolutely everything we needed was here and then some! Lucian loved playing in the apple orchard and on the trampoline and we’ve enjoyed watching out for the little bunny rabbits! North Devon has surpassed all our expecations and we really hope to be back.

The Pieterse - Aug 13

We have all had a wonderful week in the Lambshed, very much enjoyed by all! The house has been a very welcome escape from our own ‘building site’ – it’s immaculate and so beautifully finished. The girls have loved playing in the beautiful garden with new friends Daisy and Milly. And we have all enjoyed exploring the wonderful part of the world – thanks for all your recommendations – particularly the Rock Inn and the Quay. We will be back!

The Johnson’s - Aug 13

Another great stay at the Calfshed. Yet again, we have managed to relax and unwind in this tranquil setting. We had the added bonus of great weather and enjoyed being able to have family over after a day at the beach. We enjoyed the new additions from last year. The beach BBQ was well used! Thank you once again for a great stay.

Mike, Clare, Charlotte and Flora. x and ‘Ben’ and ‘Gus’ - Aug 13

What a wonderful week! The Calfshed is fantastic, your welcome and recommendations were great and the local beaches (esp Putsborough and Croyde) managed to blow the London cobwebs away! Both pubs in Georgeham definitely worth a visit. Thanks for everything – we’ll be back!!

David, Sarah and Millie - May 13

We have had a totally restful Easter weekend in this idyllic place. The decor and beautiful surroundings are totally conducive to relaxation. Ben and Sarah and Milly and Daisy have been wonderful hosts and have thought of everything to keep us content. We can’t wait to come back! From a style point of view both the barns are exquisite. The landscaping between them is beautiful also. The underfloor heating is magnificent. We will remember the cosiness as we head back to our draughty farmhouse in Bath!

Brigid, Tim, Osh, Conor and Arlo x - Apr 13

Thanks for a lovely stay – beautiful accommodation, the ideal setting for a family get together and 60th birthday celebration! Kite flying on Putsborough beach in sunshine was wonderful. Verity at Ilfracombe worth a visit and thought provoking. Thank you again.

Mike, Jackie, Graeme, Sarah, Holly and Mike - Mar 13

Thank you for a great stay.  Beautiful properties – we couldn’t have asked for more.  Wish we could stay!  Many thanks.  P.S. Great cake

Vicky, Melanie, Tim and Marion - Nov 12

Thank you so much for such a lovely stay.  You greeted us with the best cake I have ever tasted and made us feel so welcome.  The place is so cosy and modern, we couldn’t have wished for a nicer place.  We all enjoyed the eggs from the chickens and made some great scrambled eggs.  We are almost certain to come again and we all agreed that Ben should go on the Great British Bakeoff.  Thanks again

The Newmans xxx - Nov 12

Thank you so much for your warm welcome and such an inspiring stay.  Beautifully designed spaces and gardens with an attention to details rarely seen, especially in the countryside – particularly love the concrete floor!  Look forward to hopefully being able to show you our Gotland lambs in the spring!  Warmest regards

Jayne, Ronan, Olly and Mia - Oct 12

Thank you all so much for a wonderful stay

Clare, Ester, Emily, Kara, Jacqueline, Cassandra, RosalindClare, Ester, Emily, Kara, Jacqueline, Cassandra, Rosalind - Oct 12

We’ve had such a lovely stay in the Calfshed – we’ll definitely be back. It’s a little piece of luxury tucked away – a real find… We loved the relaxing feel of the place and the welcoming touches – the cake was yummy J and the magazines great to read.  We’ve had beautiful weather – the local beaches are fab – Saunton Sands is our favourite. Jack loved chasing the chickens and running around the garden. Good luck – we’re sure it will be a great success.

The Coxons - Sep 12

We have had a great week in the Lambshed, it has been a great family space for a week of mixed weather, but we have still managed some excellent beach days and go-kart racing in Barnstable.  The accommodation is so comfortable we have all slept well and relaxed. I feel I have been away for ages!.  It has also been so lovely for the children to have so much space and extra friends to spend time with.  Thank you for looking after us so well. Your project has certainly been a success!

Kevin, Jo, Jess and Darcy xx - Sep 12

Thank you such a fantastic stay.  We loved the comforts of the Lambshed and the easygoing pace.  Cecilia thoroughly enjoyed playing with Daisy and Milly; feeding the chickens and the trampoline.  We will definitely be back. Wishing you well for the rest of the season.  Warm regards

Gabriele - Aug 12

We have had a fab week, which was started off with such a warm welcome and delicious cake!  The Calfshed has been superb and quite a change from a tent! Such a find.  All the best for the year ahead and hope to see you this time next year

 Mike, Clare, Charlotte and Flora - Aug 12

Fabulous place, fabulous house, fabulous hosts!  So pleased to have ‘road-tested’ the Calfshed. A wonderful break and we shall return.

Arthur, Paula, Maddy and George - May 12

Thanks for a gorgeous house to stay in, yummy cake and great tips on all things food and activities! Also for the afternoon trampolining for the kids! We will hopefully be back.

The Satchwells – Aug 17

We have loved our visit to Upcott Farm.  The weather has been kind, the beaches beautiful and the walks bracing!  The Calfshed is a real gem and has allowed us to fully relax and enjoy our stay. We had great visits to Arlington Court, Broomhill Sculpture and Marwood Hill Gardens.  The Quay at Ilfracombe was our favourite for dinner, but the curry on Barricane Beach is also not to be missed.  We will look forward to returning.

Deirdre, Guy, Amy, Beth – Aug 17

Upcott Farm is relaxing holiday home with everything a family could ask for.  The kids loved the trampoline and the grounds, and house is fantastic.  We loved Barricane beach, Putsborough and the Sculpture park.  The Rock Inn was fab for seafood.  We will return one day.

The O’Leary’s – Aug 17

Another fantastic week in the Calfshed.  The weather was kinder and having learnt from last time we came armed with wetsuits so we could enjoy the surf.  Putsborough beach has been a big hit for the waves and castle building opportunities!  The ‘pop-up’ Stoned pizza restaurant at the Stores, Croyde was fantastic and pizza at the beach in the evening was a big hit.  RHS Rosemoor provided a perfect change to the beach and even the bowling in Barnstaple, on the one wet day, was great fun.  Thanks for another great week. James has decided that this should be an annual trip!

Shona, Ashley, James and Rene – Jul 17

We would like to thank you for letting our family enjoy your wonderful location in this part of England.  We will be back in the near future to this area and hopefully stay again.

Helen, Sue, Bryong, May, Katie, Edward, Henry, Halle – Jun 17

This wonderful property was one of the main reasons for returning to the area.  We have enjoyed it even more the second time around.

Kathy, Matt, Stanley and Mabel – Jun 17

Another fab week at the Calfshed. As lovely as we remember, particularly the lemon cake!

Graeme and Sarah – Jun 17

We have really enjoyed our stay at the Calfshed. It was the ideally relaxing weekend we were after. The beds were super comfy and the place felt so homely. Rupert the dog particularly loved playing with Pip. We’d definitely love to come back.

Rupert, Philip, Jane and Georgie X – May 17

We would like to thank you for:

-       Beautiful house.

-       Warm welcome and delicious cake.

-       Lovely, cosy log fire.

-       Tranquil gardens.

-       All the fresh air for us city folks.

-       Setting for a lovely birthday dinner.

We will be back again one day we hope.

Charlotte, Jorrit, Vicki, Alex, Lauren and little Kasper– May 17

PS. The guys are jealous of the man cave!

We had a lovely time here I can’t wait to come here again! I loved playing with Milly and Daisy in the evenings. I’m sure Bugsy did too! I was pleased to have made some new friends. Bugsy and Pip are so funny together. I am so glad my mum chose this for our holiday, I wouldn’t this much fun anywhere else, I really enjoyed playing games with Daisy and Milly, because we both taught each other games and they were super fun.

We had an amazing time in the Lambshed! Florence and I really enjoyed hanging out with Milly and Daisy. We’re all looking forward to hopefully coming to stay again to see you all!

Henry, Chloe, Maisie, Florence, Oscar and Bugsy. Xx – May 16

Really fantastic few days here – the Lambshed was amazing – and all your recommendations were really great – particularly loved the Sandleigh Tea-rooms

May 16

I really enjoyed it here playing with Milly and Daisy. Thank you.

I really liked it so much.

Ivory and Autumn - Apr 16

Such a beautiful place to stay. We will be returning many times in the future.

Colin, Gemma, Florence, Freya and Henry – Mar 16

What a beautiful place you have here. We so enjoyed having our family reunion in the Lambshed. It was our first time here in Devon and we thoroughly enjoyed it, despite the rain.

Thank you for helping us create such special memories here. Thank you for the champagne, the delicious mince pies, for the lovely Christmas decorations and most of all for your warm hospitality.

We hope to come back again…

Merry Christmas!

Geoff, Chris and Sarah, Michelle and Maddie – Christmas 15

A lovely break away to celebrate a 4th birthday. Just perfect.

Thank you. Hope to return for a longer stay soon.

Jen, Aly, Amity and Zachy – Oct 15

We have had a wonderful holiday after attending a wedding at Ash Barton.

The Calfshed is beautiful and we can’t wait to come back!

We loved Baggy Point and exploring all the local beaches with our 8 month old baby – who really enjoyed the backpack baby carrier! The Sandleigh Tea Rooms were a great recommendation – Thank you.

Thank you too for the delicious lemon cake.

We are dreaming of returning already.

Charlotte, Jason and Penelope. X – Sep 15

We have had a great time staying at the Cowshed. Loved the history of the place and the way the animal sheds had been converted. The accommodation was great for both our families, it had everything we needed.

Barbara, Michael and family – Aug 15

Round four for the Pages at the Calfshed. Another great stay, as ever it has gone far too quickly but have loved being able to completely switch off.

Great recommendation of ‘No. 11 The Quay’ in Ilfracombe for Flora’s birthday. A great place for a special meal, or at least one with white linen! Great Sea Bass, Rib eye and Fitto Misto!

Looking forward to next year already.

Mike, Clare, Charlotte, Flora, and ‘Gus’ and ‘Henry’ – Aug 15

A lovely, relaxing week in beautiful surroundings. Thanks to Ben and Sarah for their hospitality and to Daisy and Milly for their friendship

Chris, Katie, Isabella and William Xxx – Jul 15

Thank you so much for a wonderful stay in the Calfshed – it truly is a beautiful place in terms of accommodation and setting.

It was really useful having the additional baby items you have, such as the changing mat and beach items.

The Calfshed was ideally located for all the surrounding towns and beaches, and we will definitely be back for another stay.

Katrina, Pete and Max – Jun 15

We have had such a happy time at Upcott Farm. Thank you Sarah and Ben for being so welcoming and kind. This is our second time here and we continue to love Upcott’s exquisite taste and design. The trips we have loved include:

·      Appledore – great for crabbing on a grey day. The Seagate pub does a good crab sandwich (35 mins drive)

·      Dinosaur and Wildlife Park nr Combe Martin (25 mins drive).

·      Ilfracombe Golf Club – a nice informal seaside course, every hole has a seaside view!

·      Croyde beach – turn left, heading out of Croyde and park on the hill to access the quiet side of the beach.

·      Damien Hirst’s restaurant ‘The Quay’ in Ilfracombe – lovely sea views.

·      Squire’s Fish and Chip Shop in Braunton – very tasty but make sure you get in the correct queue!


David, Susan, Adam, Jo, Ellie (5) and Sean (2) Stuart – May 15

Fabulous week, fabulous weather, fabulous accommodation.

The Calfshed has been a wonderful place to stay, beautifully done and the attention to detail is second to none!  The location is perfect with easy access to everything you could want in North Devon and set in beautiful grounds and gardens.

Thank you so much, we’ve had a great week and I’m sure we’ll be back!

Dan, Wesly, Caider and Brogai – May 15

Thank you for a wonderful stay! We have had a great time exploring the local area and what a pleasure it is to come home on an evening!

We hope to come again soon,

Ang, Rab, Izzy and Adam – May 15

Thank you for a wonderful stay at your beautiful ‘Calfshed’.

We have appreciated your hospitality, the wonderful environment you have created here @ Upcott Farm Very inspiring and lots of hard work.

We have enjoyed so many wonderful activities in the local area and beyond. Loved Putsborough Beach, The Rock Inn, King’s Arms and Damien Hirst Café. Baggy Point – Wonderful walk and vista.

All the best to your family and we would certainly love to visit again.

Andrew, Pippa, Angus and Jane – Apr 15

Thank you all for a lovely stay!

We really enjoyed the beautiful houseand surrounding area. The surf wasn’t quite as warm as Costa Rica but the house more than made up for that!

Thank you once again and we look forward to coming back again!

Dan, Kate and Sophie, Ali, Mara, Laura - Mar 15

You have a gorgeous place and we had a lovely time here. Our only regret is that we didn’t get to meet you as you sound like a fantastic family! Our 19 month old son truly appreciated the toys to play with. We enjoyed walking the beach and exploring the area. We hope to return in the warmer weather and we will recommend to select friends and clients (I own a boutique travel consulting business for families called Purposeful Wanderings).

We would also love to hear about your world travels as we would hope to do the same with our children someday.

 John, Sarah and James – Feb 15

What a wonderful stay. I had a Halloween fright when I arrived for my 40th to find my whole family here. Fantastic. Such an amazing place, we will certainly be visiting again.

Tatum, Ross  and Peers – Oct 14

What an amazing week – couldn’t have asked for a better location and the Calfshed was perfect in every way. Made use of the BBQ, went for a swim every day and the two curry nights at Barricane – wow! Safe to say we’ll be back!

George, Sam and Gaby – Sep 14

What a great place you have – calm, cool, country chic. We’ve had a truly fun, relaxing, private week and we really don’t want to leave. Thank you so much.

Kiaron, Mel and Rafferty - Jul 14

We have enjoyed a magical week in the Calfshed and basked in the July sunshine almost every day! It is out first visit to the area and we have loved exploring it – we particularly loved Putsborough Beach – one of the best beaches we have visited in the UK – and it’s fantastic beach café (perfect for the late afternoon ice-cream!) Georgeham is delightful, and we were warmly welcomed by the friendly team at the Kings Arms. Finally, just to say that Upcott Farm itself is a perfect place – shades of Enid Blyton with the apple orchard and nearby lanes. Thank you for all the little touches in the Calfshed – Fred (9) devoured the Roald Dahl books and we dipped into your carefully chosen coffee table books. Thanks again!

Lucy, Rich and Freddie - Jul 14

Fantastic and very relaxing stay!! Hope to return again very soon.

Lynne and John Arrol (New Zealand) - Jul 14

We’ve thoroughly enjoyed a most idyllic week here at Upcott; not only is the settling absolutely gorgeous and the Calfshed completely beautiful – the sun has shone too! Thanks for the warm welcome and smashing lemon cake – an excellent start to the week of cream teas, ice-creams, pub lunches, and fish and chips – Squires in Braunton was very good for the latter. The Rock and Kings Arms in Georgeham proved delightful and the beach at Putsborough was perfect for our 18month old daughter. We had some fantastic BBQs out in the courtyard (Thanks for providing the kit). We’d very much like to return to Upcott – we still can’t believe our luck at finding such a gem.

Melanie, Marc and Iris - Jun 14

If this is your first time here I’m sure you will visit again. Felt instantly relaxed and comfortable. The surroundings are perfect and there is a great walk to putsborough sands. We will be here again, sooner rather than later I hope.

Lindsey and Will - Nov 13

Thank you for such a wonderful week. The house is stunning with an amazing attention to detail. Anything needed has been on hand which added to the week being very relaxing. We hope to be back next year and take advantage of the extra space by coming with some friends.

Martyn, Emily and Lola - Oct 13

Thank you for the perfect escape to the coast of North Devon! We absolutely love what you have created and the relaxing ambience that is generated. Next time can we have some decent swells!! We do not want to leave. Thank you again. Till next year.

Rowan, Jayne, Olly, Mia; Matt, Julie, Aoife, Finn; Martin, Kate, Anton, Lawrence -Oct 13

What a wonderful few days! The Lambshed is one of the most beautiful places we have stayed. What a setting and stunning interiors. We will be doing our best to emulate when we eventually convert our garage! You are very cleaver to have created such a calm and relaxing environment. We will be back I hope!

Lousie, Damian, Olivia Smith - Oct 13

Thank you to the Lamberts for the best holiday. We had such a lovely time and will have wonderful memories of our first holiday as a family with Betty. Betty has had the time of her life and we have both had a good rest too. The Calfshed is really comfortable and you have thought of everything – we particularly enjoyed our morning badminton sessions!! Thank you so much

 Joanna and Elizabeth xxx - Sep 13

Great place! Had an awesome break and will be back. Thanks for all your tips on where to eat!

Andy and Gis - Sep 13

Our only complaint….was having to leave! Beautiful!

Phil and Anna - Sep 13

Thank you for such a wonderful week. The house is stunning with an amazing attention to detail. Anything needed has been on hand which added to the week being very relaxing. We hope to be back next year and take advantage of all the extra space by bringing some friends

Martijn, Emily and Lola - Sep 13

We’ve had a fantastic time here at Upcott. The Lambshed is beautiful, great attention to details. Thank you for making us feel so welcome and Milly for playing so nicely with Alicia-Rose

The Gallo’s - Aug 13

We have had a wonderful few days in the Calfshed – the accomadation is perfect and had everything we needed. Our son and daughter-in-law and 4 grandchildren were in the Lambshed and it worked perfectly – all together for most things – then we could escape when necessary! We went out to lovely pubs had barbecues and had a super time. The weather was very good and yesterday at Saunton Sands it was perfect – blue sky and sunshine all day. What more could you ask for. Sad to leave – but we have behaved ourselves to be invited back by the family! Thank you for a perfect holiday.

 Angela and Brian - Aug 13

Beautiful house, wonderful surroundings and an amazing cake to greet us! Some really thoughtful touches that made our stay that bit more comfortable, thank you. Will be recommending Upcott Farm to all our friends and family!

The Bakers and The deTurris xxx - Jun 13

Thank you for sharing your wonderful home – we have had a lovely week full of fun and fresh air. Returning after 27 years has been incredibly special – thank you. See you again soon.

Julia, Guy, Violet and Bertie  - May 13

Thank you for an amazing stay in the Calfshed. The recommendations for the local area were really useful and the cake on arrival was fantastic. What a beautiful house! We can’t wait to return.

Jen, Olivia, Jenny and Kate - May 13

We’ve had a wonderful few days and love the Lambshed! The girls would like to take it back to Bath to live in….and so would we! We didn’t expect snow so close to Easter, but we’ve had plenty of sun too. Suzie, Millie and Lola have had 2 rides from Woolacombe with the beach ride a great highlight. We love the concrete floors and hope to use them at home. Thank you, we hope to return very soon!

Anne, Mike, Millie, Lola and Suzie - Mar 13

Thank you for the great hospitality. We’ve had a great weekend – stunning riding, and a beautiful place to stay. Many thanks

Matt and Maddy - Mar 13

Wow, what an amazing place, what a stunning conversion.  The two converted farm sheds have been transformed into a far more luxurious experience than their previous occupants would have had – Cows, Lambs, Pigs!  Ben, Sarah…It’s the attention to detail and the personal touches that make this a great ‘experience’.  We will be back with the rest of the tribe.

David and Sam - Nov 12

Thank you for a relaxing and wonderful time!  You have created such an amazing place and should be very proud!  Detail has been put into everything from the high quality fixtures and fittings to the extra special touches!  We really appreciated the lovely lemon drizzle cake on arrival and my husband said it was one of the best he had ever tasted!  And he had had a lot!! Places we visited also added to our fantastic stay! My favourite has to be seeing ‘Verity’ Damien Hirst’s sculpture! This experience is a memory I will hold forever, as I was fortunate enough to see the man in person too!  I am a big fan of him and could not believe my eyes!!  Putsborough beach is gorgeous! Ray loved running around on this clean and beautiful beach!  The walk to Morte Point, the Lynton and Lynmouth cliff train and the afternoon tea at Baggy Point all contributed to our lovely experience!  We hope that your future at Upcott Farm is extremely successful, as you deserve it to be!  Anyone can see how much hard work has gone into Upcott Farm!  With Love.  P.S. Ray loved the toys!!

Samantha, Adam and Ray - Oct 12

Thank you for a wonderful, peaceful and restful week! Such a beautiful setting you can’t help but relax.  Thank you for the warm welcome and the cake – lovely touch.  We made full use of our raspberry plants and even baked with them.  We had a wonderful memorable honeymoon and hope to be back again soon.  Enjoy the chocolates. With love

Ceri and Candi x - Sep 12

You’ve got a fantastic spot with really lovely accommodation. Thanks for all your help with everything and your warm welcome.  We’ve really enjoyed our stay and will recommend to friends and family.  With very best wishes

Nikki, Tim, Jack, James x Sep 12

How lucky to come to the Calfshed as a very last minute ‘find’!  We’ve had a fantastic week, so thank you for your hospitality. Friendliness and help. Millie (once she felt better!) has loved playing with the toys on loan and chasing the chickens!  For anyone else staying we can heartily recommend: walks on Baggy Point, and Morte Point; and Putsborough and Barricane beaches.

Beth, Jonathan and Millie - Aug 12

The Calfshed was the perfect place to come and relax after a busy month at work.  You have done a fantastic job with Upcott and have clearly put your hearts and souls plus some very hard graft into the place.  Emily loved playing with Daisy and Milly and thank you for such a lovely welcome. We have always loved North Devon, and we hope to back soon.

James, Val, Emily - Aug 12

What can we say…  A little piece of heaven in North Devon.  Thank you for a wonderful week – see you next year

 Cameron, Francesca and Mark xxx - Jul 12


Lovely time in the Lambshed, so warm and welcoming, so well catered for and in such an idyllic setting.  Sunny windy and wet but great walks on the beach to Woolacombe.  Barnstaple and Bideford pannier markets and riding along the Tarka Trail.  Thank you so much and for the delicious cake Ben and Sarah.

The Kirks and The Wilks Family – Aug 17

Another year, another relaxing week at the Calfshed. This year we finally made it Barricane beach for the curry which was fantastic and couldn’t have asked for better weather for it! Thanks once again for being such accommodating host!  See you next year.

Mike, Clare, Charlotte, Flora and the dogs – Aug 17

Thank you so much – what an idyllic place you have created here.  We couldn’t have hoped for better.   Highlights include great lunches at the Rock and 11 The Quay and a cheeky sunset curry on Barricane Beach; seaglass hunting at Lynmouth and surfing and skim boarding at Croyde.  We will be back – just try and stop us!

The Tennants – Jul 17

The Calfshed is as delightful as when we visited three years ago – we’ve had a smashing week here.  Thank you for the warm welcome of delicious lemon cake, and as for the mini heatwave and oodles of glorious sunshine, well, what can we say?!

Iris and Dylan (4 and 1) loved Putsborough, Croyde and Woolacombe beaches with the rock pools at Barricane a real favourite.  Squires and Stoned in Braunton provided some great food to enjoy in the Calfshed, and the Rock Inn at Georgeham was just as brilliant (and filling) as we remembered.  We had charming afternoon at NT Arlington Court and thought Sandleigh tea rooms delightlful.  We’d love to return again – we love it here!

Melanie, Marc, Iris and Dylan – Jul 17

PS Iris loved the new trampoline

Thank you for being so helpful and polite hosts – even with all my amazon deliveries!  We really enjoyed our stay, loved the accommodation and all the attention to detail.  It really was a pleasure to stay here.

Claire, Rob, Hadley, Charlotte and Martha – Jun 17

Thank you for another wonderful stay at the Calfshed.  Everything was perfect and we will be back!  Penny loved meeting the ducks.

Charlotte, Jason and Penelope – Jun 17

We’ve had such a lovely time, it’s been a really wonderful return visit.  Everything as we remembered and we’ve found some new places to visit.  Great beaches, pubs, country walks, seaside villages.  We’ll look forward to next year!  We love Upcott Farm!!

Verity, James, Jack and Freya – Jun 17

Just had a lovely week here in the Calfshed with our daughter over from Dubai for Wedding of Friends.

Lovely cottage conversion and great colour scheme. Had a great time and would recommend to our friends (especially those with dogs).

Jackie, Clive and Harriet – Jun 16

Sarah, Ben, Daisy, Milly and Pip were wonderful hosts! From the first second we got here the Lambshed felt like home for us.

It’s such a peaceful and lovely place, that we are really sad we have to leave – and so are our dogs.

We will definitely be back!!!

Thanks for the delicious lemon cake and everything else! It truly was a fantastic experience staying with you!

Anita and Nico (and Paco and Rosi) – May 16

Really lovely relaxing time in this gorgeous place – Thank you.

Will definitely be back and will recommend. Our favourites were Sandleigh Tea Rooms and Putsborough beach.  Loved that the sun came out every day when rain forecasted – Magic!

Sarah, Simon, Heidi and Finn – Apr 16

What a wonderful spot and stylish, well-equipped house. We loved all the personal touches – white linen, lovely hand cream, wetsuit drying rack, etc.

A very relaxing place to stay – it feels like home from home. We’ll definitely return.

‘Thank you so much for having us.’ and ‘Thank you so much for having me! It was very fun and the bed was so comfy! Love Sienna and Liv.’

Jo, Jay, Barnaby, Liv, Flora and Sienna. Xx – Apr 16

A perfect break at New Year in a beautifully equipped and appointed house. A great experience and one we and all our friends who stayed would readily wish to repeat! A lot of thought and care has gone into the creation of the Lambshed and Ben and Sarah should be commended for their efforts.

We look forward to another visit!!

Hamish, Jill and Luna (The dog),

(accompanied at various stages by…. Lucy, Ella, Guy, Anna, Julian and Emma!) – Jan - 16

We collected shells, rocks, feathers, sea weed, branches and wonderful memories this week.

A great place to blow away the cobwebs and recharge our batteries.

We hope to be back soon.

The Kellehers – Oct 15

We have had a fantastic stay here at Upcott Farm. It’s even more beautiful than the photos, as the tranquility of the place just cannot be described

We have felt so at home, and appreciated every detail in the amazing renovated old buildings and garden orchard. Such a special place which we will recommend to our friends and family.

Thank you Sarah for a delish-lemon cake, and thank you Ben for dealing with the organic food waste – it’s so good that you encourage recycling as part of your ethos.

The kids have had a great time surfing and body boarding at Putsborough beach and Croyde beach. We were lucky to hit the last 3 days full of sun during our stay (I did ask you to order good weather, Ben, so thank you).

We really love this area, it’s a real gem, and we hope we will be visiting again soon (to perfect the surf skills).

Good luck with the ‘Apple-festival’. The world never has enough of good, organic apple juice, so I’m looking forward to ‘Upcott Farm’ apple juice on the shelves soon! If you need graphic designers, just let us know!

Ingrid, Maurus, Ingmar, Markus and Agnes – Aug 15

We had a lovely stay in this peaceful and beautiful barn.

Jude, Tro, Anya, Joseph and Leo – Aug 15

Despite some less than sunny weather, we have all enjoyed this beautiful part of Devon. All the beaches locally have been fantastic, Putsborough on a sunny day was particularly good! Cycling along the Tarka Trail from Bideford to Yerde Orchard was an uphill slog, rewarded with a fab lunch and the long downhill back! Would recommend Arlington Court NT house. The Rock Inn @ Georgeham and the walk around Baggy Point.

An excellent week, we hope to be back soon!

Shona, Ashley, James and Rene – Jul 15

Great first time at Upcott Farm. We travelled quite far to get here and were not disappointed. The place is the kind of house I’d like to live in – all attention has been lovingly given to the ‘Sheds’ – our 2 year old loved the toys box and bouncing on the trampoline with the chickens. We had some great days on the beaches, walked Baggy Point and had a day trip to the ‘Big Sheep’.

We’d definitely love to come back perhaps with Grandparents next time.

Lizzy, Max, Maja and Bump. Hamburg, Germany – Jun 15

Another amazing week in the Calfshed – thank you so much.

Wonderful weather all week – great, happy times spent on the beach with Grace.

We go home with lots more happy memories of your beautiful home….. until next year!!

Ali, Jan and Grace – a special squeal from Grace to the chickens! X – Jun 15

16th: Beautiful sunshine.

17th: Sunny, went to beach then lunch at the Rock Inn, Georgeham, wonderful , best lunch out in long time, highly recommended.

18th: Cloudy. Arlington Court house museum – gardens – woolen wood!  ?  worth a visit.

19th: Unfortunately weather too windy for Woolacombe but fantastic beach. Fish and chips from award winning Braunton  fish and chip shop: Yummy

20th: Went to Cornwall! Visited Boscastle, Tintagel Castle. Lovely places.

21st:  Thurs. Tunnel Beaches and Saunton Sands, what a beach. Wish be able to return xxx

16th: Fri. Home unfortunately.

Our celebration for 40th Wedding Anniversary.

The Scannell, The Jennys and the Warings – May 15

Thank you so much for creating a truly amazing place for people to come and stay, we’ve had a lovely time and you’ve obviously gone to a lot of trouble thinking about what to include – the toys upstairs were a great find for our 2 yr old daughter! and all the personal touches are really lovely.

We’ve enjoyed Saunton, Putsborough and Woolacombe beaches but unfortunately none of the pubs!!  We’ll come back to do that tho.

The cake was amazing and lasted our whole stay.

It’s just a shame we have to go home now the weather has changed!

Thank you again and hope to come back again soon.

Becki, James, Nancy and ‘Billy’ the dog x

P.S. I’ll def. be recommending Upcott Farm to my friends and family – May 15

Thank you so much for a wonderful time

M + P + M – May 15

So beautiful. So elegant, So Peaceful.This place is a triumph both inside and out. A seriously loud and prolonged round of applause for Sarah and Ben for creating something so special.

We loved our time here

Naomi, Jason, Griff and Betsy – Apr 15

Wonderful! The perfect escape. Thank you for all the hard work and creativity which has enabled us to share this precious location. We will take home many treasured memories. A great place to spend my birthday with the family.

Thank you Ben, Sarah, Daisy and Milly.

Rae, Anne and Peter – Mar 15

A wonderful stay at Upcott – our second over the New Year break.

Issy, Toby, Tom, Dan.  Xxxx – New Year 14

Upcott Farm was recommended by very good friends of ours who stayed here last year. We have had a wonderful stay in the Calfshed and enjoyed exploring the local beaches. This is a beautiful place in a stunning area and we plan to return in the future.

Colin, Gemma, Florence, Freya and ‘Mr. Henry’ – Aug 14

Many thanks for such a fantastic and tranquil week. Upcott Farm really is lovely and you have designed it beautifully. A fantastic place to stay for a holiday and we most definitely will return – and the lemon cake on arrival, we think the best we have ever tasted!

Rod, Caroline and Dominic - Jul 14

Sandleigh, walking around Baggy Point and admiring the amazing scenery….a lazy BBQ in the courtyard with friends…Pimms on our picnic rug in the orchard ….exploring the footpath opposite and stumbling across some glorious British countryside…and of course eating the phenomenal lemon cake! We froze half of it to have with our friends later in the week and they also thought it was divine. Hope to be back soon

Thad, Claire and Darcy - Jul 14

Thank you so so much for such an amazing time! The Calfshed is amazing and so is your hospitality.

Georgie, Damien, and Mikey - Jun 14

Thank you for making our first family holiday so relaxing. Grace was so relaxed she decided to sleep through the night and we could all get precious sleep – wahooo!!
Upcott is a truly beautiful place – a little piece of heaven on earth, we feel very lucky to have found it and we would love to return next year.
P.S. Thank you for the lovely lemon cake – so yummy!

Ali, John and Grace x - Jun 14

We are leaving here with the happiest of memories of our holiday with you. We can’t get over this perfect setting – the bleating of the sheep, the relaxing trickle of the stream and the beautiful garden space surrounding us. The Calfshed is in a league all of it’s own. The design and thought that has gone into it ooze style and sophistication and has created a wonderfully confortable stay for all that have the pleasure of visiting. The children have had some marvelous adventures and enjoyed every minute playing with the girls – I’m sure we’ll be hearing about their last day together for a long time to come!!! Thank you.

Ella, Shaun, Rosa,Ava, Charlie and Phoebe - May 14

It’s been lovely. We have just loved Upcott Farm. Beautifully designed. All the details just in their places. Girls loved the chickens and Pubbles and Pebbles. We loved to gather around the fireplace and play cards. We got the St Jude’s storm but I think I was the only one to wake up to the sound of wind. Upcott held us safe. Oh yes, I also want to mention the lemon cake. I want that recipe! Thank you so much for a lovely week.

Rosa, Venla, Dilli, Sami and Sau - Nov 14

What a lovely place this is! We have had a very comfortable and relaxed weekend in a very beautiful ‘shed’! Surf wasn’t great and neither was the weather but the beaches nearby are very scenic and we made the best of the great british weather playing in the sand and flying kites. We would love to come back (even without the guarantee of sunshine) and stay longer next time. Thank you for such great hospitality (the lemon cake was divine!)

Kate, Martin, Lawrence & Anton - Oct 13

What a wonderful place you have at Upcott Farm. The Lambshed is gorgeous and is the best farmhouse we have ever stayed! The corner lounge is so lovely and comfy, perfect for chilling out in once the kids are in bed! As an Aussie, who is fussy when it comes to beaches, the beaches are awesome and countryside gorgeous. We thank you and the girls for your hospitality! We hope to be back soon!

Paul, Donna,Sam and Amelie - Oct 13

We had a lovely four days in the very comfortable Calfshed. The facilities are great. We only wished for more sunny days! Had a great day at Lynmouth/Lyton, so highly recommended it. Also Sandleigh tea rooms and lunch at The Rock – we walked there and then on to Putsborough and back just to work it off!! Thank you for thinking of things to make self-catering enjoyable with a small baby!

Suzy, Daniel and Darcy xxx - Sep 13

We have had a wonderfully relaxing week in the gorgeous Lambshed! What a truly beautiful cottage, we have loved it. The weather wasn’t brilliant but it didn’t matter as it’s been an excuse to light the wood stove, eat lots of yummy food and relax. Thank you for all your recommendations, we had a great last meal at The Rock and especially loved the cream tea at Sandleigh. I’m sure that one day we’ll be back! Many thanks

Anna, Joel, Alex, Sarah and Isobel - Sep 13

The perfect setting and a perfect week in North Devon. Not only were we blessed with sunshine most of the time, the Calfshed made a very comfortable home for the week. Simply but beautifully decorated – well done Ben and Sarah for creating a great holiday home. We look forward to returning again and I know Will and Darcy found lovely friends in Daisy and Milly. A great base to explore the fabulous beaches and fun places for the kids from surfing to fishing!

Jo, John, Will, Darcy and Glen xx - Aug 13

Fantastic! – We love it here and already planning for a return visit. So much provided to make a perfect stay. Our hosts made us feel at home – so friendly and helpful with sorting any problems. The BBQ was used again, as was the outdoor eating area – we could have done with just a bit more sunshine, but can’t complain we had nearly every meal outside – even if we had to use the brolly! We really enjoyed our beachhut at Saunton Sands and the Kings Arms pub. Thanks for a lovely stay.

Alison, Julian, Lucy and Millie - Aug 13

We had sych a wonderful time. The place is amazing and a proper family holiday home. The lemon cake was amazing and a lovely welcome. We had everything here. What else can we say apart from thank you

Ware Family - June 13

Sarah and Ben have created a really wonderful space. We appreciate the attention to detail, the light and the design concept. All go towards creating a sanctuary space and a fantastic holiday. Thank you x

Jaden, Judi and Ella - Jun 13

Thank you for a wonderful stay. We had fantastic weather and the week flew by! The Lambshed was lovely and very comfortable.

Catrin, Geraint, Ifan, Elwyn, Enid, Eryl and Victor - May 13

What a fabulous few days in the most wonderful place. You’ve done everything so beautifully. We’d recommend Kings Arms and Rock Inn (Georgeham) for anyone wanting a good meal locally – The Quay at Ilfracombe was also fabulous. Baggy Point, Putsborough Beach and Woolacombe all lovely spots. All in all a really great weekend!! Thank you

Nick, Suzanne, Jack, Maddie, Lulu and Roxy - Apr 13

What can we say? Gorgeous house, gorgeous setting – gorgeous everything – especially the welcome cake! Such a lovely stay, will definitely come back – hopefully in the summer next time!

Rosie, Mark and Paddy - Mar 13

A fantastic house to spend a very memorable New Year with close friends. Thank you for all the thoughtful touches and details that makes Upcott Farm so special – the mince pies, the welcome champagne, the Christmas tree and of course the beautiful houses and friendly welcome. We love it here and hope to return if you’ll have us!

The Moffatt Party - New year 12/13

Thank you for a great week!  I suspected we were in for a treat and was not disappointed!  This is a stunning location and the barns are amazing as well as all the little details that make it extra special.  We loved looking after the chickens and found them very entertaining – and useful when we discovered 3 eggs one morning!  Jake loved the lego and the books and the fire was lovely on windy hail stone evenings.  On our days out we saw stags, hawks and we rescued caterpillars down at Baggy Point!  It’s been very relaxing and we haven’t even minded all the rain.  Thanks again guys

Shula, Brian, and Jake - Nov 12

Thank you very much for a wonderful stay at Upcott Farm.  Scott had a wonderful birthday weekend in beautiful surroundings, and relaxed atmosphere.  Safi loved the chickens and ducks, she absolutely adored the animals on her stay at the farm. Our friends and myself had a fantastic time!  Thank you for your attention to detail Sarah – baking the scones on our arrival, and the children’s books in Safi’s bedroom.  Best wishes

Anciea, Scott and Safiya - Sep 12

What a wonderful few days we’ve had.  Thank you for such a wonderful place, it felt like home, especially the wonderful homemade scones on our arrival. We hope to be back soon.  Best wishes

Paul, Es and Casey - Sep 12

Thank you so much for your hospitality. We had a wonderful few days.  This place is brilliant, we look forward to coming back next year.  With very best wishes

Rexa, Zohreh, Sareh, Hossein, Mass, Leila xx - Sep 12

We have had the most loveliest week in the Calfshed. We are really quite sad to be going home. Olly and Ruby have loved having two fabulous new friends to play with, so thank you Daisy and Milly for being so fabulous.  The décor of the Calfshed is lovely, and made us feel so relaxed, and you have thought of everything.  Despite slightly rubbish weather, the week has been really what we all needed and you sowed a seed of country life in a true city-girl’s heart! We really hope we can come back next year, although by the sounds of it we will need to be super organized and book once we get back, which we will be sure to do.  P.S. We will miss the chickens lotsP.P.S Our arrival cake was delicious and a real treat

Lucy, Simon, Olly, Ruby and Tess. - Aug 12

A very warm welcome to a fabulous cottage. Everything you could possibly want.  From the scrumptious welcoming cake, to the offers of help and advise on where to go, it’s been perfect.  Good luck for the rest of the year and hope to see you again.

Malcolm, Jane, Simon, Adam and Andrew - Aug 12

Wonderful properties so luxurious and working so well for all our families, old and young. Beautiful baked cake on arrival and fantastic recommendations and help when we needed it. Surrounding area had so much to offer, we only got to see a little and will most definitely be back.  The boys have begged not to go and the adults agree.  We shall be telling everyone about a piece of luxury in North Devon!
