The detail

Head into the rural heart of the South West to The Old Piggery at Kerswell Farm, located just two-and-a-half miles from the stunning North Devon coastline. This listed 17th Century farm is no longer in operation but has instead become a peaceful haven that focuses on conservation.

The Old Piggery was built in 1889 but has now been renovated to become an environmentally friendly and beautiful getaway for couples or small groups of friends. After coming up the private driveway guests can enjoy the living area with its comfy sofas, wood burner, TV and DVD collection. The well-equipped kitchen has a small selection of essentials to get started with some cooking, as well as a Nespresso coffee machine. You're also greeted with a lovely welcome of a farmhouse cream tea, wine, snacks, milk, eggs, butter, tea, coffee and homemade bread.

There are 2 sumptuous bedrooms for grown-ups (sorry no children at Kerswell Farm) - 1 double with king-size bed and one twin room - as well as a bathroom with a large walk-in shower. There is also WiFi throughout for those of you who want to check your emails. For those wanting to dine alfresco in the summer sunshine, there's comfy garden furniture and a barbecue with pizza stone out in the garden, meaning there are opportunities to relax whatever the weather. The lakes also offer utter peace to unwind.

The owners live nearby but will respect the privacy of guests, and are on hand for help, advice and to do any essential washing of clothes at the farmhouse.

Guests are free to roam around the 20 acres of the farm and explore the grasslands, meadows, woodland and the four lakes, complete with wonderful wildlife and rare species of flowers.

For those who want to venture a little further there is so much on offer within a 20-mile radius. Head to the coast and visit the fishing hamlet of Bucks Mills with its cottages and rocky beach, the red cliffs of Peppercombe, or the sandy beach, cafes and restaurants at Instow. The 180-mile Tarka cycling trail is close by, and there are 4 bikes available for use at The Old Piggery – please provide your own safety equipment. Whether seeing the wildlife at Northam Burrows and Tamar Lakes or trekking across Exmoor, there is so much to do.

What a great find. Perfect get away cottage, set in a beautiful tranquil village, warm welcome on arrival with homemade scones jam and cream. The cottage is well equipped and dog friendly. Great location to explore Devon and Cornwall will definitely return.

A really beautiful and tranquil place to sty! Elaine and Adrian are great hosts and we recommend taking them up on one of their home cooked meals. They really have thought about everything you could possibly need and the Old Piggery is decorated and equipped beautifully. You will be "sharing" your accommodation with the resident bats who live in the eaves and can be heard coming and going in the late evening.

Truly delightful. If you are looking for somewhere to escape the hustle and bustle of modern life - this is the place for you! Elaine and Adrian made us feel instantly welcome. The beds are gorgeously comfy (so much so we bought the same duvet) and the setting is simply stunning. The welcome dinner was most welcome after the journey down. Our canine friends loved running around the grounds and the dog shower is a very handy addition! The immediately surrounding dog proof garden also helped. We would thoroughly recommend.

A beautifully quiet retreat that offers visitors the perfect getaway from the hustle, bustle and stresses of everyday life. Every detail and comfort has been considered and a warm welcome awaits you here in North Devon.

Sue and Andrew

Cosy, beautifully styled (with amazing attention to detail) and such a delightful place to stay! Outside there are three carefully designed seating areas all benefiting from the sunshine, and perfect for whether you want to relax in a lounger with a book, have one of Elaine's delicious cream teas or dine on her most fantastic homemade food. You'll feel totally spoilt.
