self catering holiday cottages Devon coarse fishing lakes swimming pool hot tub


As the organiser of a small golf society, I thought I would write to say how much we enjoyed staying at South Farm from 27th – 31st March this year.

Our group has been on an annual “tour” for the past eight years, taking in various venues in France, Belgium and Scotland. This year for the first time we decided to “tour” at home and what a find South Farm proved to be.

As a self catering party of eleven 40-60 year olds, we are a pretty demanding bunch, which normally causes nightmares for me as the organiser pandering to a variety of whims, particularly when it comes to location and standard of accommodation.

I was delighted therefore to find that South Farm ticked all the right boxes and we immediately found the flexibility of the various properties at the location to be ideal in accommodating our group

Our “chef” was in his element in the large fully fitted kitchen in the main house and took full advantage of the locally sourced produce you were able to order in for us.

Even the most fussy member of our party could not fault the high standard of the bedrooms, bath/shower rooms, lounge and conservatory areas and the spa/hot tub was definitely an added bonus (particularly after 36 holes!).

The peace and quiet of South Farm was wonderful and the views over the surrounding countryside stunning. Some of our members even took advantage of the adjacent lakes and (aided by your very helpful staff) one even managed to catch his first carp!

This was however first and foremost a golf trip and here again the South Farm location ticked all the boxes.

Over five days we played Royal North Devon and Saunton (East and West) on the North Coast, Woodbury Park, East Devon at Budleigh Salterton on the South coast and Yeovil.

Every course different and providing a stunning venue in their own right – collectively they simply provided golf heaven and all easily accessible from South Farm, with Saunton the longest at just over an hour away (but well worth the effort).

Without doubt this has been our most enjoyable and best value for money tour and from the organiser’s view, the most hassle-free.

Thank you very much for your help and recommendations and I have no doubt we will be returning to South Farm again.

If you have any other enquiries from golfing groups please show them this note as our wholehearted endorsement of South Farm as an excellent base for golfers – or indeed anyone looking to get away from it all and enjoy the peace and quiet of the Devon countryside whilst having all the comforts of home at their fingertips.

Yours sincerely

 I would just like to say what a wonderful time our golf society have just had staying at South farm. It was a great venue for our golf trips, making the great Devon courses, both north and south, easily accessible for our daily trips. The facilities were great , being able to fish was an added bonus, one of our members had his first catch which made his trip, and the hot tub on the terrace was very welcoming especially after the two rounds at Saunton it was a life saver.

We would recommend south farm to others.
