Lovely comfortable accommodation. Character cottage. Somewhere to park. Very friendly proprietors. Homely and great value for money. I came here last year and I have come again. Much nicer than a very expensive clinical hotel. I would recommend it to anyone,

They are welcoming hosts, it's in a nice location for visiting Exeter and there is a nice breakfast in the morning. Recommended for families. Located in a nice village with a good pub and a restaurant. Would stay again if visiting the area

Great communication before arriving. A really warm, friendly welcome, clean and comfortable bedroom with en-suite. A tasty and substantial breakfast. Pregnancy dietary needs were taken into account. Beautiful setting and charming village. We would definitely return! Thank you!

We have just come back from a 2 night stay at Drakes Farm and could not have asked for a more hospitable or welcoming couple in Mick and Nova. They are just willing to put themselves out for you and nothing seems to be too much bother for them. The room we stayed in was kept immaculate and the hospitality... More

I have been staying in this b and b in the week for the past 5 months (work related) and would not have stayed anywhere else as it has been perfect for my needs. It is handy to Exeter but far enough away to feel relaxed in the countryside. I had a very well appointed homely room tastefully decorated with... More
