What our Guests Say…
I have holidayed in rural houses for more than 25 years, both in Europe and in the UK, and if Primrose Cottage isn’t the best place I’ve stayed then its in the top 2. The cottage is one of a terrace of 3, just down the lane from the owners farmhouse, and is quiet and remote yet only 10 minutes or so from Honiton and, due to its proximity to the A30, 25 minutes to Exeter. The quality and standard of both decor and furnishings is exemplary and undoubtedly in a much better class than most similar properties available for holiday lets. The only thing i could have hoped for was a tumble dryer, but that really is nit picking as there is outside drying and for indoors a clothes rack. The views from the living room window are truly stunning, I had friends and family visit during my 8 days and they all commented on how beautiful it looked.
Jessica who is responsible for the cottages is truly a delightful lady, she obviously cares about the countryside but more than that, she is the most approachable, friendly and charming host. On arrival we found some supplies to keep us going until we did a shop, but we didn’t expect a delicious fruit bowl and gorgeous home made cake. We had 3 meals during our week and again, the lady excelled with her cooking.
It’s not often that i leave somewhere and wish I’d booked for longer but Primrose Cottage is one such place. I hope to return here and hopefully Jessica will still be there. I recommend this idyllic let 100%.Ally Bally, December 2017
Our farm hostess, Jessica, was very welcoming and further provided a very comprehensive basket of fruit as well as a box of fresh farm eggs, bacon and some milk all of which was greatly appreciated by us. We had also ordered a first evening supper to be cooked by Jessica which was delicious and further aided our settling in from the moment we arrived. Teabags, cleaning utensils, dishwasher tablets and washing machine sachets were also plentiful. The views from the deck at the back of the cottage out across the Otter Valley were stunning and we were further blessed with lovely weather to enjoy the outdoor deck to its maximum.Pat H, West Sussex, Sept 2017
The host was very welcoming and thoughtfully had left us with some excellent, and unexpected, items for a meal on our arrival – including a delicious pudding and a bowl of fruit. the accommodation was spotlessly clean, comfortable, and well equipped – especially the Southdown bedding! We had a very enjoyable stay. The surrounding countryside was beautiful.Mike H, Milton Keynes, August 2017
The cottage is beautiful, very well equipped with lots of little extras to make our stay feel even more luxurious!! The views are stunning and the property is a great location for many days out. The owner, Jessica, is very friendly and welcoming, she even took our 3 year old on a tour of her farm including animals and a tractor. We would highly recommend this lovely property and look forward to returning again.Catherine T, Sudbury, July 2017
We were particularly impressed with how well equipped the cottage was. We were welcomed by the owner who showed us the cottage and explained that we could get in touch with them if anything was required. We loved staying in this working farm and would definitely consider re-booking.Paul B, Guildford, August 2017
The accommodation was very comfortable. The views were stunning. My mum who is not very mobile and needs help with a wheelchair found this place helped with her needs. Jessica was lovely and helpful. We had a really nice holiday. Thank you.Louise I, Walton-on-Thames, May 2017
Jessica was very welcoming and immediately made us feel at home. The accommodation was very clean and Jessica had even provided a few foodstuffs so that we did not immediately have to rush off to get in supplies. The views from the cottage were gorgeous (best of course when the sun shone!). When I booked I did not know about the Southdown Sheep or the fact that the bedding at the cottage was produced from these sheep reared on the farm. We watched the lambs bouncing in the field during the day and we enjoyed very comfortable nights’ sleep under the Southdown duvet. So good in fact that we bought a duvet for ourselves! Thank you Jessica for a wonderful week!Pat T, Oxfordshire, May 2017
We were greeted by the owner Jessica who met us at the farm entrance and showed us to the cottage and explained where everything was. She provided a welcome pack of bacon, eggs, tomatoes, milk, tea bags, bread, fruit, cake, shower gel, shampoo and I could go on. It was a very well appointed cottage and we were very comfortable. The views from the decking were outstanding. Jessica didn’t bother us whilst we were there but was just a phone call away and nothing was too much trouble. I would definitely rebook.Victoria H, Kent, July 2017
The owner is a lovely lady who goes above it – was like meeting a friend. The cottages are superbly done in a great location and peaceful.Ron R, Kent, July 2017
The cottage was superb we have never slept as well. So much so that we purchased some of the fantastic bedding. The owner Jessica could not have been more helpful.Veronica J, Leeds, May, 2017
We absolutely loved staying at primrose farm cottages. The local residents and owners made us feel so welcome and did everything they could to make sure we enjoyed our stay. It was a lovely relaxing time, we were surrounded by amazing country views and there was lots to do in and around Honiton. We had one of the best holidays here and will definitely be visiting again. Thank you!Jenny D, Hampshire, April 2017
