Thanks for such a lovely stay. The house was beautiful for a fortnights stay in Devon. We were especially appreciative and suggestions and ideas for challenging hikes over Dartmoor and ice cream stops at Bideford. for the children. We really enjoyed our holiday. The house and gardens are the best we have had. We will return.

As always, we really enjoyed our stay at Middle Hollacombe Farmhouse even though the weather was not always clement. Tom and Nancy were the kindest of hosts and made our stay even more special, demonstrating real care for our comfort. We really enjoyed lunch at The Duck at Yeoford, and found a visit to the Coldharbour Mill at Uffculme genuinely interesting.

Amazing place. The small gestures on arrival were fantastic especially after the drive. With the weather and house and scenery this place could easily be confused with somewhere in Tuscany.

We can only endorse all the favourable comments already made! Middle Hollacombe really does exceed the norm for a holiday let and Tom and Nancy are most kind and thoughtful hosts. Outstanding memories of our holiday will be the harmonious style of the whole house - ancient and modern! (Love the bread oven and under floor heating) the cleanliness and comfort we found; thoughtful touches such as fresh flowers, chocs and toiletries; a very welcome 'welcome hamper'; beautiful gardens; friendly horses; peace and quiet; visits to Lydford Gorge, boat trip on the River Exe where we were able to get close to a resident seal and her new born pup. Becky greatly appreciated use of the art studio and lovely scenes to paint. Thank you

Another wonderful stay (our 5th) at this beautiful house. The time has flown and the peaceful setting has worked its magic once more. Tom and Nancy are always so welcoming and helpful and we always look forward o seeing them when we stay here. The house is a firm favourite, but it's Tom and Nancy that make our stay here with a genuinely enjoyable one.

Beautiful house in a fantastic location provided the perfect base for our stay in Devon. Tom and Nancy have thought of everything, the house is extremely well equipped and some days it was hard to drag ourselves away. We enjoyed exploring the area. Particularly liked Topsham and Budleigh Salterton (Vanilla Sky Deli and cafe are well worth a visit) We enjoyed the walk through Fingle woods from Castle Drogo. We were very fortunate to have almost two full weeks of sunshine but the house is so welcoming that we would have loved it whatever the weather. Thank you for your hospitality and for the poppy seeds. I will think of our lovely stay when I grow them at home. P.s The food at New Inn at Samford Courtney was lovely, varied menu with some unusual options.

We couldn't have asked for more charming and helpful owners, the location and property perfect (wonderful array of art); it is rare to find this standard of quality and design (& eco!) Great access to North and South Devon - loved the fresh lobster at the Crab Shack, Teignmouth. Bideford - Art and Craft heaven. Exeter Cathedral truly impressive, quayside good spot for lunch, removed from the noisy city. Dartmoor great walks and views - park at Meldon reservoir and walk to old viaduct. So much to do and so little time!

Thank you for providing us with such a lovely, well equipped, comfortable, BEAUTIFUL place to spend a very relaxing weekend. We were a 'hen party' of sorts but a well-behaved one (we think!!) and this was just the place to spend quality time with old friends. The hamper was lovely (amazing butter!) and the Christmas decorations made us feel very festive. We went to The Old Forge at Chagford for a very sumptuous afternoon tea which none of us managed to finish - they let us keep the leftovers and we're still finishing them two days later! Highly recommended. Thank you again!

Lovely, lovely Middle Hollacombe Farmhouse - with is eclectic style and the pleasure of a wonderful art upon its walls. We came in need of total rest, the peaceful surroundings and well equipped house, (even down to the correct dishes for our tapas lunch), was the balm we were in need of - just could of done with a longer stay. It was however worth venturing out to drive through the magical 'Cromwell's Cutting'. We wish you much success. MD, Dorset

An excellent, well equipped and furnished property. The hosts were particularly helpful. As the farmhouse was "green" the information and instructions folder was well set out. Garden very pretty. We would be happy to return. RG, Hampshire
