On The Farm

What To Expect

It's not just about the animals, relax in our hot tubs and spend quality time in our games room.

Our games room provides hours of entertainment for both adults and children alike, a great way to get teenagers off their gadgets, challenge them to a game of ping pong or pool, it is always surprising how competitive they get. Air hockey is another favourite, why not have a family tournament while you are here…great fun! Fancy something a bit less energetic, then borrow some of the many board games that we have and enjoy a games evening in front of the log burner, or when was the last time you did a jigsaw puzzle? For the little ones we have good old stickle bricks, lego and train sets and a new “holiday” story is always good at bedtime!  With comfortable seating and underfloor heating, these rooms are popular all year round and great for those rainy days.

Hot Tubs

A soak in a hot tub with your friends or family as well as being totally relaxing provides natural relief from stress and pain.

We have three hot tubs at Odle Farm all situated to make the most of our stunning views across the Otter Valley. Heated to 38 degrees it doesn’t matter what time of year you come or what time of day it is.

Willow and Honeysuckle cottages have their own hot tubs outside on their private patio areas.

The third, larger hot tub is for the sole use of  Wisteria cottage and although not outside the cottage, is private in as much as being set on its own decking area with changing room/shower and toilet in an adjacent building. Being situated across the courtyard it is not overlooked by any of the cottages.
If Wisteria cottage guests don’t want the use of the facility we will offer it to Jasmine cottage guests.
Wisteria and Jasmine cottages are often booked together for larger family or friend get-togethers, the hot tub will be available for both cottages in these circumstances.

The hot tub was not the reason for booking as I am normally a hygiene freak and don’t generally like them…. but, the attention to detail, the attention to cleanliness and checking made all my worries disappear as that was one of the unexpected luxuries we fell in love with.

Honesty Shop

There is a small Honesty Shop in the games room, we have a selection of local meats in the freezer, a few essentials as well as a few treats, that might save you a trip into Honiton.
We also have some greeting cards on sale, made using our own photographs taken at Odle Farm and in the local area.

Dogs

We welcome up to two dogs per booking in Willow and Wisteria cottages.

Odle Farm is a fantastic location for a holiday with your dog! We have some wonderful walks on our doorstep in the beautiful Blackdown Hills AONB. Rivers and streams to paddle and swim in and only 30 minutes to the coast if you fancy a day at the beach.

There is an enclosed patio area outside your back door, a separate enclosed grassy area to play in, and a wood burning stove to curl up in front of after a long day (Wisteria cottage)!

The Sidmouth Arms pub in the village is dog-friendly, which is just a few minutes by car or a 30-minute stroll along country lanes.

We don’t like having lots of rules and regulations because we realise that dogs are very much part of people’s families, however our cottages are very much part of our family so please look after them for us.

We think it only fair that as a prospective visitor, our House Rules for Dogs should be plainly stated so you can decide if Odle Farm is right for you & your pet/s. Please click below “doggy rules” for details.

And finally….if you take some photos of your dog/s enjoying their holiday at Odle Farm we would love to see them and put them on our Facebook page.
