Arrived at this loverly farm in daylight to appreciate the countryside around. Just an overnight stay on our way to Devon. A warm welcome and quiet overnight stay. A pleasant room with comfy bed and hearty breakfast served. Good views all around and cows opposite our window. Loverly

Brilliant location, lovely accommodation, great cooked breakfast and lovely people. Perfect all round stop on the way to Cornwall. All the facilities you need in a recently converted barn. All the facilities of a self catering stay.

Stayed for business for one winters night and had a heavy cold. The room was nicely decorated with a very comfortable bed. Unfortunately the wifi was too slow to allow me to download or stream tv, and I was too stuffed up with cold to get the tv to work either... Had a great light breakfast of poached eggs on...

We stayed in the Cedar Lodge self catering accommodation. It is of an extremely high standard and very clean! We only stayed for 1 night and arrived late so didn't get the chance to enjoy all the facilities. However, would definitely recommend and hope to stay again in a less rushed circumstance!

Easily the best b&b my partner and I have ever stayed in. James & Kate were the most lovely, welcoming hosts and made us feel like we were at home. The b&b and other self catering accommodation that we were lucky enough to see is all finished to a really high quality standard. The room was comfy with a huge...

Great B&B, incredible breakfast, mega quiet even in the morning when the cows were up. Beautiful bedroom, comfy beds and helpful, friendly hosts. Recommend The George round the corner for dinner and a pint... one of the locals even gave us a lift back to the farm. Cannot recommend this place enough, we will be back!

I have stayed at Shave Farm on four separate occasions now and am very happy to highly recommend it. Consistently clean rooms, friendly welcome and great breakfasts. I especially like the family suite, which has a downstairs sitting room and upstairs bedroom and bathroom.

It is such a lovely farm, it made me want to give up my office job and go and work on a farm for a year! We stayed overnight and it was perfect. Really welcoming host Kate who made us a cup of tea as soon as arrived (appreciated the Jammy Dodgers!). We had at our disposal a gorgeous lounge...

We stayed here whilst attending a family wedding nearby. This is a superb b & b sited on a working farm. We were warmly welcomed with a specially brewed pot of tea and biscuits and the standard of accommodation and the quality of the breakfast was exceptional. The only (very minor) downside - and certainly not serious enough to warrant...
