A quiet getaway in the heart of the Devon countryside on a working, 400 acre dairy farm, close to Sidmouth beach.

Bring the family and your dog to enjoy a stay at this gorgeous farmhouse located on the owner’s 400-acre farm just 5 miles from the seaside town of Sidmouth. Guests are encouraged to learn more about rural life by exploring the farm and visiting the animals: an ideal holiday experience for little ones! To the rear of the property, a generously-sized private garden is a fantastic place for you to relax while your dog chases his tail on the lawn. Children meanwhile are sure to adore the shared play area.

This property really is doggy heaven, with its generously-sized enclosed garden, plenty of places to sniff around, and gorgeous countryside surroundings offering miles of walks. Two-legged guests love staying here too, as it offers the chance to escape from all the stresses of daily life and enjoy the slower pace of rural life. The open-plan lounge/diner makes it easy for you and your family to spend time together, whilst the two bedrooms can each accommodate two guests, the first being a double and the second a  twin. Guests are also welcome to explore the farm, taking care to keep dogs on leads due to the resident livestock.

Set within the East Devon Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and just 5 miles north of Sidmouth, staying at this property allows you to experience both countryside and coast with your canine companion at your side. Part of the Jurassic Heritage Coast, Sidmouth’s seafront offers a sand and pebble beach which is open to dogs from September through to May, with a smaller section welcoming your happy hounds all year round.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

I highly recommend Burscombe dairy farm as a delightful escape to Devon. There is a particularly friendly reception for both guests and dogs. The cottage is spotless and well equipped. It is an ideal base for exploring South Devon, but you will need to navigate narrow country lanes, which is part of the magic.

A wonderful place to stay in the heart of rural East Devon, but close enough to Sidmouth etc. to make shopping and day trips easy. Lovely hosts and a great garden that the children loved. One of our nicest holidays!

Idyllic location in the Devon countryside, peace and quiet in a lovely cottage, warm welcome from the owners on a working dairy farm. My son loved helping in the milking parlour and cuddling the young calves, watching the tractors working and walking around the fields. Perfect location to explore the local area and the local Waitrose handy to stockRead more up from for supplies. We enjoyed our stay so much we didn't want to leave but have already booked up again for next year. Hide

This cottage is not recommended for people with disabilities as stairs are very steep also indoor steps require some negotiation.

A really idyllic location and the cottage is surprisingly spacious. Not ideal for those that are 6 foot and over but only a few doorways to navigate and this all added to the charm. Well worth noting that the location is great in terms of ease of access from South East as its not too far into Devon and also easy to get to the coastline which is maxRead more 10 mins drive vs other cottages we have stayed at that were 30 / 40 mins + Hide

A lovely cottage on a dairy farm. The owners were great and showed us round the farm and our youngest saw first hand where our milk comes from. An idyllic setting with great walks all around. In easy driving distance of Sidmouth, Seaton and Exeter. Our dog Billy loved it!

Very quiet location only the farmyard animals to list to. Track to the farm a bit daunting but taken slowly is ok, as we have been to this property before we were aware. Host very friendly and will assist where possible. Ideal for Sidmouth, sidbury and Seaton, Children would love it.

Fantastic farm cottage. The owner provided a warm welcome and we felt at home straight away. Beautiful setting and ideally located to explore the South Devon Jurassic coast. The cottage has everything you need and is spacious yet cosy. Although we ate out most nights at good quality local pubs, the kitchen facilities are more than adequate for cookRead moreing. The cottage was clean, quiet and warm. There a plenty of local walks with great scenary. The local amenities are good too. Hide
