    It was in the middle of nowhere, which is exactly what we wanted. It was like going to your own family's cottage. A real home from home. Loads of games and dvd's and VHS tapes. Table football in the loft and loads more childrens games. Internet was a bit flaky at times but that isn't a problem if you want to detox. Absolutely no phone signal but there is a landline and honesty box. Plus I had some lovely random locals calling thinking they were calling someone else. Lots of walking and paths to be done just from the cottage and the dog loved it. As you are deeeeeeep in the valley you need to be able to manage steep paths in places. Also the Wysis Way goes behind the cottage and you can take a 20 minute walk up to the main road (steep in places) and the farm shop for a few fresh veg and cheeses. People leave behind various herbs and spices, flour etc so you dont have to do what I did and empty your spice rack from home because it is probably on the shelves. Also there is rosemary,thyme,sage, chives and marjoram growing just outside the house. My only problem was the road is very narrow and the hairpin bend was a bit scary for me. ..... I wouldn't like to go down it in the dark. And I wouldn't want to sleep in the loft as there was tons of mouse droppings but being up there during the day would be fine for me.

    Secluded and rustic. The little house at the bottom of the valley, the stuff of fairytales.

    Unbeatable location, stunning private surroundings. Lots of wildlife. Everything provided, lots of games, books and DVD's plus WiFi . Certain aspects of the cottage need updating, i.e. the kitchen and the bathroom. General cleanliness could be improved. A fairer charging system for fuel / electricity costs could be implemented. You will enjoy your stay at Driftcombe Farmhouse.

    Pros: Secluded, quiet, clean, comfortable in every way, great wildlife and lovely grounds. Cons: The television. We have been to Driftcombe several times and never before been unable to watch terrestrial tv. The owners have fitted a Freeserve box, which didn’t appear to work and a Google Chromecast which you need a smart phone to operate via an app. Not everybody has a smart phone, I know people who don’t, and not everybody is tech savvy. We downloaded the app but still couldn’t get anything on the tv. After 3 hours of trying we gave up and went out next day and bought ourselves a portable smart tv which meant we could watch some live BBC and other channels via WiFi. It may be that it was just us, who couldn’t work it but I think it should be made clear that there is an issue here and that it’s not just a matter of turning up and switching on.

    A beautiful homely property, doesn’t have all the “mod cons” but that doesn’t matter because of the perfect location, open fire and buckets of character.
