Thank you, we had a lovely time thank you and we were really impressed with your venue. Noah loved the play barn and it was just a shame we couldn’t make more use of the pool with George having the temperature.
We loved the place thank you and you and the team were very welcoming.
We will be back

Hi Thank you all for a fabulous week. You have done a fantastic job there and clearly take pride in what you do. One of the best if not the best we have ever been to. We have been telling all our friends.

Hi Barney, Camilla
I’ve been meaning to email you both since we returned home, but it’s been back to the grindstone with a bang! We had a wonderful holiday at Flear Farm and think you have the most amazing spot with lovely cottages and facilities …we had a great time and would like to thank you both.

Hi Barney & Camilla
Thank you so much for having us back this last May half term. I can’t tell you how much we enjoyed it, and how special a place we think that Flear Farm is. We think you are very lucky being there 365 days a year!

your attention to our care all of it. Thank you.

Hi Barney and Camilla,
We had an amazing time thank you, the cottage was lovely and the facilities were perfect for our little ones. I think my wife will be leaving a review on Facebook at some point this week and we do hope to visit again sometime in the future.

Hi Barney and Camilla
Thanks for your email and for returning the deposit.
We had such an amazing holiday, just a shame we couldn’t stay longer! The cream teas on arrival were delicious and a really nice welcoming touch, and which made us all sit down after the journey and chill!
Orchard lodge was perfect for us and flear farm was so relaxing and peaceful. We took a walk in the bluebell woods which were beautiful. We also had a handful of the wild garlic which we put in our salad!
I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend flear farm, and hopefully we’ll be back one day.
Hi Barney and Camilla,
Thank you so much for the stay it was really lovely. Will add note on FB

Hi Barney & Camilla.
We had a wonderful stay with you this week in Cartwheel. It really was fabulous and the children loved every second of it. Thanks for all your efforts too! Quick question, what pillows were in our bed in the cottage? I would like to get some for home, they were so comfy!
Thanks, Jo x (3rd September 2016)
My husband and I brought our four and two year olds here for a week in March. We knew the area well, and had visited several times before but Flear Farm gave our visit a completely different dimension and our girls absolutely loved it.
The cottage was seriously well equipped and really comfortable, the swimming pool, hot tub and steam room were excellent, the grounds, ponies, walks and play area were outstanding. And the play barn was brilliantly equipped with trampolene, wheelie toys, swings, climbing frames for the girls, and table tennis, pool and even the latest James Bond DVD for us.
It is amazing and the owners Barney and Camilla could not have been more welcoming or attentive without crowding us.
The location and local area is exceptional, but for people with young children (and indeed those without), this really is a fabulous place to stay. Heartily recommended and we hope to be back!

Dear Barnaby and Camilla,
WOW!! What a wonderful weekend we have just spent with you. The family email system is red hot with everyone so enthusiastic about our stay. You can be justly proud of your excellent complex. The house is magnificent and the kids and adults enjoyed the play barn and swimming complex. Thank you for your warm Devon welcome and your concern for our well being particularly on Friday night when we had to “guide” the late arrivals home.

Dear Barney and Camilla,
We had a such a superb weekend in the big house and wanted to write a sparkling review on your website but couldn’t see where to do it so here it is- perhaps you could cut and paste?
Thank you so much for making our family Christmas weekend in Flear House so wonderful.
The house is beautiful and with all the Christmas decorations and the stunning Christmas trees which you kindly provided, it was very special indeed.
This was our second visit to Flear Farm and I’m sure it’ll not be our last.
As always, the play barn, swimming pool, tennis courts, woodland walks etc were thoroughly enjoyed by all.
Merry Christmas to you and the boys
Zoe & Peter
Many thanks for a lovely holiday, we had a really wonderful time!. We will most certainly be back!
Hello Barney & family,
Thank you very much again for a lovely stay & for sending back our belongings! Much appreciated. We’ve been telling everyone about Flear & how wonderful it is!

Hello Barney and Camilla,
We would like to thank you for an enjoyable holiday, the facilities and cottages were lovely and spotlessly clean. It made a pleasant change for there not to be a list of restrictions on times and places children were allowed to be, our two are missing the hot tub which was clearly the biggest treat for them.
All the best for the future,
Sharon and Mike P.

Thanks again for a great holiday! Issy still talks about the ponies every time we buy carrots and she is always asking if we can go to the beach!
Hope everything is king really well for you all and Roo is enjoying nursery!

Dear Barney and Camilla, We just wanted to say how much we enjoyed our stay at Flear Farm at the weekend – Cartwheel Cottage was very comfortable, the setting lovely and the boys absolutely loved the Playbarn and swimming pool. It was just what we were hoping for to celebrate Nick’s birthday and we really felt relaxed afterwards – better than a spa weekend! (shame it all wears off too quickly on return!) It was lovely to visit the South Hams out of season and we would definitely like to come back… Thanks for making us feel so at home.
Frances, Nick, Joseph and Patrick
