Just had a very short break in South Devon and stayed at a gorgeous cottage complex just 10 minutes drive from the beaches of Torbay. Compton Pool Farm is a delight to visit no matter what the season and the owners John and Ann have worked incredibly hard making this place what it is today.
The kids just loved the large gardens and play equipment to let off steam including the trampoline with safety netting. Alfie was very curious about the pigs and there were go-karts for older ones to enjoy racing across the grass. Furthermore a covered sand pit, swings and a games room meant children were well catered for.
The beautiful cottages were all tastefully decorated in muted tones and even little details like the kid friendly cups and plates were appreciated. We stayed in Crazy Well which was aptly named for our family. A two storey cottage with three bedrooms - one single bedroom downstairs with its own en-suite with two further double bedrooms upstairs and a family bathroom.
I had a sneaky peak around the Farmhouse and it is just ideal for family holiday get-togethers. A large Farmhouse it has 5 bedrooms sleeping 10 and used to be the owners family home so the fixtures and fittings are above and beyond what you would expect a holiday home to have. The large dining/living spaces and conservatory makes The Farmhouse all the more luxurious and I have got to find an excuse to return to Compton Pool Farm and hire it for a special occasion.
The indoor swimming pool was a fantastic addition to a wonderful stay and the kids could have splashed around in it all morning had it not been for Blackpool Sands and a glorious sunny day to enjoy.
