We stayed at Rydon Farm in November and what a wonderful little gem it is. Situated between Exeter & Exmouth, it is as peaceful as you can get. Having arrived in darkness, the farm is well lit, with ample parking for guests. The room was very spacious, with a large bathroom which had all the additional luxuries such as bathrobes...

We returned recently for another stay and were equally impressed. We received a warm welcome from Sally who was also very accommodating when we made the booking as we were so keen to stay here again. The room, breakfast and service were all excellent, couldn't fault anything, just perfect!

My room at Rydon Farm was beautifully decorated with every comfort thought of, from cotton wool in the bathroom to magazines to read at bed time. The breakfast was delicious, all local produce and the addition of fresh milk for tea in my room was perfect. The farmhouse is just fifteen minutes by car from Exeter and easy to get...

We had a wonderful one-night stay at this boutique B&B near Exeter. It is part of a working dairy farm and we were greeted on arrival by the cows coming in to be milked. The room (Exe) was spacious, as was the en-suite bathroom, and we were made to feel really welcome by Sally, the owner. We cannot recommend this...

We really enjoyed our stay in this welcoming B&B. The room was perfect - spacious, clean, comfortable bed, huge shower and lots of great touches including chocolates for bedtime and fresh milk in the guest fridge downstairs. Delicious breakfast with local produce. Sally was very accommodating, allowing us to check in early and leave our bags there the next day....

A wonderful overnight stay. Fabulous room, breakfast, and suggestions for local eateries. Sally was so welcoming and made sure we had everything we needed. Home produce and cooking excellent. Having had to put on formal attire in the morning, Sally kindly let us return after lunch to change into casual wear for our journey home-a blessing as traffic was dire...

It was a pleasure to stay at such a welcoming and luxurious B and B and to know we are supporting a family business at the same time. The bed was fantastically comfortable and the breakfast perfectly cooked.
