Look onto Tiphayes


Excuse us for blowing our own trumpet, but these are some of the comments that have been left in our Visitors Book (we've picked out one per month) during our first very successful year of letting 2014. We were fully booked out from April to the end of October with another couple of bookings in December.

Copied word for word from our Visitors Book - honestly!

"Absolutely wonderful weekend away. The log burner kept us toasty and warm whilst the Shepard's Hut feels quite luxurious. It's lovely and secluded but we also walked to the local pub through fields. Roger was a great host and provides good information about the local area. Thank you!"

"What a place! The Shepherds Hut is just perfect, it's spacious, clean and well equipped with the most amazing views, just what we wanted for a long weekend. Situated in the most beautiful secluded countryside come rain or shine. Roger was a fantastic host, even on standby when we got lost! Highly recommend, and definitely hoping to return! "

"The most perfect few days, everything we could have wished for and more. A stunning location and a great host. A brilliant opportunity to get away from it all and have a go at living the simpler life. A haven for dog owners, I have never been somewhere so brilliantly suited and where they are not just allowed but really welcomed and designed for! "

"What a gorgeous place to stay!  Stunning views, birds feeding at dusk on the bird-feeder. Deer in the adjacent field. Brought Myrtle (4 1/2 month old cocker) & Fennel We could open the door and they took themselves off out, and safely returned after 5 or 10 minutes. We loved the Barn. It is really well-equipped and very comfortable. As previously mentioned, The Sidmouth Arms (25 mins there on foot and 30+ coming back) is a very welcoming pub and the food excellent Thanks for a super week!"

"The perfect setting to get away from it all. The Barn was spotless and it was a great help to be able to bring our two dogs. Roger couldn't do enough to make his guests welcome. Loved it and will be back!!"

"Thank you for a wonderful retreat, a fantastic place which we look forward to visiting again. We thoroughly recommend The Sidmouth Arms to your next visitors, the food is lovely. All the best Roger to you and your uncle, it was very nice to meet him!"

"Had a fantastic time at this barn, amazing renovation of a lovely little place! Enjoyed the heated swimming pool which was in beautiful surroundings. Would recommend Hare & Hounds for a lovely carvery, Sidmouth fish & chips, Donkey Sanctuary, Salcombe Regis coastal walk and the lovely village of Branscombe. Only suggestion would be an outside light to the rear to enjoy the gardens and BBQs in the evening. So happy we could bring Flossie with us which made our stay even better. Hope to visit again in the near future and will definitely recommend to friends and family."

"Thank you Roger so much for your hospitality! Tiphayes is so relaxing and beautiful. Was a perfect last holiday before our baby arrives! The Barn is beautiful and had everything we needed. Only suggestion would be having more places to stay on site so we can bring our extended family. Loved having Bluetits right outside the door and your lovely dogs. Hope to bring the baby back one day."
