Our two rooms were most charming and spotlessly clean. Everything in the right place, well designed and thought out. Excellent recommendation of The Diggers Rest pub for an evening meal, where I had the most tasty lamb pie with suet pastry. The breakfast was superb. Sally was so genuinely welcoming. We felt warm and comfortable at all times during our...

The location to town is fabulous, and the accommodations were simply stunning... comfortable with all the modern fixes, but full of English countryside character. And the breakfast!!! Best surprise of all. The only regret is that we stayed only one night!!! Thanks for a great memory- the Mitchells

The location is enriched by the fact that it is far enough from the light of Woodbury to be dark and quiet overnight- a lovely sensation of being away from it all, while having the benefit of a very friendly host to make sure you have what you need. The rooms are cosy and comfortable, warm and the en suite...

Stayed for a few days after Christmas and had such a relaxed time. The room was beautiful with a good choice of teas & some biscuits. The breakfast choice was great with home made fruit compote. Inside the b&b you wouldn't have known you were on a farm as it was so quiet. A lovely garden that my dog was...

Stayed here a couple of times now. Great place to stay. Rooms gorgeous Absolutely spotless. Yummy breakfast and Sally is a great host. Not far from The Diggers Rest, which is a great pub, serving great food. Check out Darts Farm to, which is about 15 mins away! Will definitely go back and stay!

We were invited to a family celebration near Exeter the week before Christmas and after a quick search on trip advisor for accommodation in the area, we found Rydon Farm. What a stroke of luck ! Everything about this perfect B and B was faultless. Even the pervading smell from the close by farmyard didn't deter from the pleasure of...

I stayed for a couple of nights in December 2016. The room was extremely comfortable, spacious and well appointed. The welcome was warm and friendly.The breakfast was superb, tasty locally sourced, ingredients, well cooked and presented. I can see why the B&B won a gold award. A great place to stay.

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...
