“We had a fantastic stay at Hallwood Farmhouse hosted by Ruth and Richard. Ruth and Richard were friendly hosts who provided all the necessary information in advance, ensuring a smooth, enjoyable and peaceful stay. Countryside settings, access to farmhouse produce , pet friendly, kitchen with all the necessary provisions, large garden with decking area for outdoor dining are some of the highlights.Richard provided logs for the fire pit, enabling us to have a memorable campfire experience. The farmhouse provided games for kids, ample bedrooms for both adults and children, making it suitable for families. Location of the farmhouse made it easy to experience some the places like Air Extreme at Barnstaple, RHS Garden,Milkyway Adventure Park, and beautiful coastal areas like Hartland Bay.”

“Hallwood Farm sits in a beautiful spot amidst the rolling Devonian countryside. It is peaceful and yet conveniently situated to explore the coastline of North Cornwall and South Devon and the hidden depths of Dartmoor. with its pretty hamlets and stunning views. The farmhouse is comfortable and clean with an enclosed garden for children and dogs and has all the space and equipment you are likely to need. Ruth and Richard are wonderfully friendly and accommodating while still finding the time to run a working farm which is great to experience, especially if you spend most of your year in more urban surroundings. We loved it and also wanted to highlight the quality of the farm produce., not only the vegetables but also the steaks, burgers and incredible beef sausages. You won’t find anything like these in a supermarket. Well done Ruth and Richard. Than k you for allowing us to stay on your farm and helping to make a memorable holiday.”

“Thank you Ruth and Richard for such a wonderful stay, the house was superb and the views idyllic. Everyone fell in love with Fidget who came to see us every day. We would also like to thank Julie who was very helpful and friendly and nothing was too much trouble. We would not hesitate to stay here again and would highly recommend this holiday home.”

“A stunning country cottage located in a beautiful farm in Okehampton. Waking up to fresh green fields and cows grazing peacefully. We had a cozy stay at Ruth’s cottage. Would definitely recommend for anyone wanting a quiet and relaxing holiday/trip. Ruth is an amazing host, even brought over some delicious fruit directly from the farm for us one day. Really pleased with the hospitality and our stay. ”
