We had a wonderful stay in Bramley Cottage at Mazzard farm. The grounds are beautiful and peaceful and the cottage very well set up for young families with all baby and toddler equipment provided (high chair, stair gate etc). Our 2 year old loved the trampoline, paddling pool, play equipment and toys, and had so much fun feeding the goats and pigs. There were fresh scones, clotted cream and home made jam waiting for us on arrival which was lovely after a long journey. We opted for the breakfast hamper to save us having to go out shopping immediately and everything was delicious. Ruud a...more
The cottage and its surroundings are very private and homey. Throughout our stay we felt at home and part of the farm life. The hosts were very warm and caring: Upon arrival, we were welcomed with scones and Devon clotted cream. We made a full use of the cottage's very well equipped and spacious kitchen and enjoyed cooking fresh local farm produces everyday. Excellent place to unwind and to experience the beauty and rich farming culture of the area.
Three friends and I came here for a quiet writing weekend , having been here two years ago for the same purpose,. We belong to a small poetry group. Mazzard Farm is the perfect place for a creative retreat out of season.

Comfortable, clean and very well presented holiday cottage in a very pleasant countryside location. Excellent for exploring the local area. I would like to compliment Mazzard Farm on the extensive garden with looked like a children's paradise and it is a place we will be recommending to our grandchildren. The only downside is that upstairs would have been a bit tight for someone over 6 foot in height. I mentioned this to Rudd and he said some of the other, larger cottages had higher ceiling. and would more suitable for tall people.
The cottage was lovely, great facilities for our son aged 4 to enjoy every. For example the play area football pitch, animals and woodland walks. Ruud and Jacqueline made us feel very welcome and provided ideas for things of interest to do close by. All in all a very enjoyable break in East Devon would definitely recommend
Our fifth visit to Mazzard Farm. My grandchildren adore this peaceful place and look forward to going all year. It is an ideal environment for young children and an excellent base for exploring the Jurassic coast. Ruud and Jack always make us very welcome.
We were only one week in one of the apartments of Mazzard Farm (old stables, very nicely rebuilt in apartments) Only, because there was so much to do. The list of things to do they sent us was endless! also the less famous beaches were very nice. We enjoyed being there very much. For the children (5 and 6 years old) was it like paradise!
