2nd – 9th June
A wonderful place to escape from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.  The area looks good in bad weather!  The Apple Loft was very comfortable with plenty of room.  Many thanks to Judith & Julian.

9th – 16th June
A huge thank you for a very warm welcome.   Your cream tea was much appreciated Judith, a lovely touch!  What a beautiful and stunning part of the country this is.  Weather very mixed, got wet a few times but it hasn’t stopped us visiting many places.  We have stayed in several self catering places up and down the country, but have to say the ‘Apple Loft’ is in first place now, it really is ‘top notch’.  We will certainly recommend it to our friends and family.

What a wonderful cottage we’ve stayed in quite a few cottages but this really is the tops!  Weather has been awful, we were lucky to get here! But never mind, we have still had a lovely relaxing time wish we could bottle the smell and take it home with us!!
Thank you Judith, Julian and Family fur such a lovely time.  Sorry to go home, but will come again next year.

Lovely cottage, modern, clean, comfortable.  Lovely views.  Lovely places to visit from here.  Enjoyed the cream tea, a lovely touch.  Comfy bed.  We’ve really enjoyed our stay, well worth the money.  Would recommend to friends and family.  Can’t praise it enough.

Very memorable cottage, lovely area, very good meal at ‘The Cobblers’ in Colyton. 
Thank you.

11th – 18th Aug
This has been our second holiday to Farwood Barton and we have again had a lovely stay.  The children have loved playing with the dogs, stroking the calves etc.  The cottage has been lovely and really well equipped s we have an 8 month old baby.  Cream tea on arrival is a lovely touch and we hope to visit again before too long.  Thanks to Julian and Judith for a lovely stay.

18th Aug – 1st September
Absolutely adored the cottage!  Really was a home from home – everything we needed and more.  Best standard of self catering we have ever experienced.  Judith’s cream tea on arrival was without a doubt the best we have ever had-divine!  Our daughter has loved her time here – the play-barn, the two friendly dogs Russ & Rex making new friends and especially our up-side down cottage!  Her adventure on the tractor for a tour of the farm was definitely a high light of her holiday and was much appreciated.
We can’t wait to tell everyone about this amazing farm and we will definitely return.
Thanks for an amazing holiday.
Yvonne, Tony & Maddie (Dublin)   
1st – 8th September We came here for our honeymoon and what a fantastic place it is.  The Apple Loft has been beautifully restored and had everything in it we needed.  The farm is blessed with views to die for and we enjoyed even more by cycling around the local area.  Lots to do locally and made to feel very welcome on the far.  Loved the dogs and being around the calves.  All in all a fab time!
Sharon & Neal

8th – 15th Sept
We have had a wonderful relaxing week.  The Apple Loft has everything you need for self catering and is a great place to stay!  Thank you for the cream tea!!  Can’t wait to come back!
Johnny & Tamsyn

15th – 22nd September
What a fabulous place to stay we were delighted with the accommodation, views absolutely fabulous.  We had a wonderful welcome from Judith and have thoroughly enjoyed our week here and were thrilled to see two newborn calves, an added bonus of staying on a farm.
Grace & Barry

8th – 14th October
This has been our second Devon Farm stay holiday but our first at Farwood Barton.  The Apple Loft is a beautiful cottage a real ‘home from home’ where it is possible to relax and completely unwind.  Judith & Julian our wonderful hosts nothing seems to be too much trouble.  The eggs from the farm chickens made for a wonderful breakfast and the farm lamb chops a tasty tea.  We can highly recommend both!  The cottage is perfectly placed for day trips out.  Beer, Honiton is a fab place for coffee and Hare and Hounds just outside Honiton does a fab Calvary , but it is always busy so worth booking a table.  We will certainly be back maybe with better weather, so we can have one of Julian’s famous farm tours.
Thank you for a fabulously relaxing week.
Sarah and James

20th – 26th October
This has been a lovely break, thank you Judith & Julian, what can we say about the cottage/area that hasn’t already been said? I hope we shall be back again someday for another relaxing break!  Food at the Wheelwright was great, also The Anchor in Sidmouth, the Pilot Boat, Lyme Regis.  Lovely coffee and cake in Axminster and also the Cosy Tea Room in Budleigh Salterton.
June & Brian

3rd- 5th November
Farwood Barton is home from home.  The views are so uplifting and the accommodation is perfect – clean, homely and everything we need.  We had a beautiful walk around the local roads and enjoyed our time very much.  Julian and Judith are so friendly and helpful and made our stay a very happy one.  This was our second stay and we’re sure there will be a third soon.

6th – 10th October
The Apple Loft is a relaxing and well presented retreat.  It has all the facilities one would require plus some pleasant extras.  The owners and their pet were extremely welcoming and friendly.  It is a great location for the Lyme Bay area.  We highly recommend staying here and I’m sure we’ll return.
Alister & Janine

1st – 8th December 12
Firstly, we would like to thank Julian and Judith for making our stay at the Apple Loft so enjoyable.  Anyone who stays here will agree it is a beautiful, warm and peaceful place to stay.  Although it has been cold, wet and windy outside, we know each day we will be returning to a lovely warm welcome back here.  I could write pages of places to visit and eat but I think they have been covered in previous pages.  We look forward to telling all our friends about our amazing stay.

Thank you again!

We had a lovely stay in Apple Loft. Beautifully converted and great views from the top floor.  Can recommend 2 of the walks in the ‘Devon Jurassic Coast’ book around Branscombe/Beer and Budleigh Salterton. 
Though you can expect plenty of kicking the ball around with the dogs!
Thanks very much!
James & Lucy

Jane & Tony

25th Feb – 3rd March
We’ve had a lovely holiday here at Farwood Barton.  The weather has been very kind to us and we’ve enjoyed visiting the the towns and villages along the coast from Exmouth to Lyme Regis.  Had a great walk around the otter Estuary Nature Reserve and just a pity we could’t enjoy the views from the Coastal path because of the mists.  Apple Loft is lovely place to stay – well furnished, kept very clean and everything you need to make holiday comfortable.
See you again in the future.

We are the first time in Devon and it’s really a fantastic place.  We have seen a lot of interesting villages/towns.  The Apple Loft is so lovely, we have enjoyed it and thank you for the hospitality.  I am German, we have to improve our English, because we would like to talk more.  And Joelle love your fantastic/delicious milk.  It’s so great!

15th – 20th April 12
We’ve had a lovely break in the Apple Loft, it’s been very relaxing.  Weather hasn’t been brilliant and we’ve got quite wet a couple of times but it hasn’t stopped us doing things visiting lots of villages including Beer, can recommend Barrel O’Beer – lovely fish menu, also bought smoked mackerel from the shed.  Went to Chesil Beach – it is closed for the season now –  so instead of walking along it – we sat on it – because we could!  Also went to Sidmouth and Buddleigh Salterton.  Stopped a couple of hours in both places.  Plan to go to the biscuit factory (Moors) on the way home.  Today we walked to the beacon great views from up there – then walked to Colyton – disappointed the tea shops were closed! They say you have to leave something to come back for- so maybe next time, we’ll have to try the tea shops!  But I have to say Judith’s cream tea is excellent- maybe she should open a tea shop here!
