“Relaxing break in beautiful setting”
Reviewed 23 September 2014 for a stay in September 2014

We've just returned from a weeks stay at Orchard View. We both live in London and fancied a much needed relaxing break which was exactly what we got. The cottage was the perfect size for us, well equipped and because we were ridiculously lucky with the weather, we spent much of our stay in the garden.

We also took our bikes and I'd definitely agree that you the hills are for seasoned cyclists only but we drove to Dartmoor (about an hours drive away) and cycled along Drakes Trail which starts in Tavistock. Also, Beer and other towns are about a half hours drive away too. Would definitely recommend as a place to stay and David and Julia were great hosts including bringing out a much needed self lighting BBQ coal bag as we struggled to get ours going!

“Relaxing Stay”
Reviewed 5 September 2014 for a stay in August 2014

We have recently got back from our stay at "Orchard View " at Royal Oak Farm, which is near Honiton in Devon.
It is a lovely stone cottage which sleeps two. it has everything you need for a pleasant stay, including a wet room shower, large TV, Wi Fi and swimming pool, and is set in a lovely garden/
apple orchard.
We took our bikes (which David & Julia kindly let us put in their shed). We soon found out you need to be pretty fit to cycle from the cottage! But we did put our bikes on the car and did some cycling nearby in the Blackdown Hills, Beer & Exmouth seafront which was nice.
You do need a car if staying a while as other than the farm shop there are no other amenities nearby, but there is plenty of choice in nearby Honiton.
Not too far away which I can recommend are Sidmouth, Beer & Seaton.
We also visited Exeter & Plymouth by train from Honiton .
So if you are looking for a bit of rest & relaxation then "Orchard View" is for you!
PS.I almost forgot (not sure how!) as mentioned in the previous review the cream teas really are good.

“Pefect Stay”
Reviewed 16 August 2014 for a stay in August 2014

Just got home from a lovely stay in Orchard View at Royal Oak Farm. The place was exactly what we needed for a short break. The cottage was really cozy and had everything that we needed and more. The farm and gardens are very well kept and there are some lovely walks to enjoy nearby. Honiton the local town is only a short drive away and there is plenty to do there. I would highly recommend staying here if you are interested. Julia and David who own the farm are really accommodating and there is even a farm shop, pick your own fruit and tea room on your door step. The cream teas are as good as they say they are!
