#1 of 6 speciality lodging in Bovey Tracey
Such a wonderful, relaxing stay in the Farmhouse over the August bank holiday week. Alison and Richard are incredibly laid back and have thought of everything which makes it a very enjoyable place to visit. The animal feeding is a huge bonus which our daughters loved to bits, especially petting 10 bunnies at once on the picnic benches! We’ll definitely be back!”
We had a fantastic safe week staying in the Farmhouse as a family of three (our little one is 20 months). The property was lovely and as clean as expected. There were lots of thoughtful equipment (push chair, high chair, blackout blind, children cutlery, cot etc) provided with no extra charge which helped reduce the amount we needed to bring. Our little one especially enjoyed the animal feeding sessions and interactions with Alison and Richard.”
“Amazing stay at Stickwick
We have just returned from a week’s stay at Stickwick in the Farmhouse, and what an amazing trip! Set in beautiful surroundings our accommodation was comfortable, very clean and had such lovely original features. Stickwick catered for everything we could have possibly needed, from the playground and games room for the kids, to the well stocked pantry for he adults (who didn’t want to cook!).”
