We have had an anamazing week, and have been so lucky with the weather. Explored many of the beatiful beaches around the area. Really liked Bantham beach. The girls loved the Miniture Ponty Centre at Dartmoor, a great day was had by all. A huge thank you to Sue & Pete for making us feel so welcome. The girls have used the pool and loved the playground so much. We enjoyed the scones & wine on arrival!! Snaffle was a perfect base for us thisweek, just wish we could have stayed another week.

Lovely family get together in beautiful surroundings. Kineton was ideal and the other facilities excellent! Loads of inside play space for the children, but the cold weather finally shifted so we had two sunny warmish days. We even made it to the beach!! We recommend Cafe Asia for a Chinese. Good food and excellent delivery service! Slapton Beach is the best shingle I've been on and Totnes is Totnes! If you haven't been it's a must. Thank you for a lovely stay.

A first holiday with our grandchild together with his mum & dad, two aunties and an uncle. A great location and accommodation, hosts Pete & Sue cannot do enough to help. I did not realise there was so much to see & do in the area so a weekend was just not enough - we will have to "force" ourselves come back! A brilliant first holiday and thanks to all. Stayed in Kimblewick May Bank Holiday

We have had a lovely few days at Pitt Farm. The pool was fantastic, as was the play area for our daughter. We really enjoyed the croissants every morning from the shop.

A wonderful, relaxing place with a lovely welcome from Pete & Sue. We really loved playing tennis & swimming & the beautiful surroundings - we enjoyed helping feeding the animals & especially the enormous pigs! We also had amazing weather, a real bonus & went to Blackpool Sands & Bantham beaches. We haven't had time to do everything we'd like to so maybe we'll come for longer next time. A special family time. Thank you and love to you both. Stayed in Pelham May 2013

What a wonderful week we've had here at Pitt Farm - Thanks Pete & Sue. The cottage is lovely - spotlessly clean & a relaxing & comfortable place to call home for a week. The bread & croissants from the shop are delicious & late night craving for ice cream made the honesty shop a very useful place indeed! The farm itself is lovely - we've loved the playground (especially the trampoline), the playroom, the pool, picnics outside & Cameron has developed quite an obsession with the chickens - I suspect they'll be glad we're leaving! Have had a lovely, lovely week pottering around Salcombe (inc North & South Sands), Dartmouth - steam train/bus/boat trip, Bantham beach & hopefully time to fit in Blackpool sands on the way home. Thanks so much - we've had a fab week & will definitely be back in the future. would definitely recommend. Stayed in Mullen April/May 2013

I really enjoyed staying at Martingale, we had lots of fun especially in the games room. The swimming pool was fantastic. I played tennis a few times and that could've been my favourite thing. The Easter Egg hunt was amazing. We fed the animals, those goats are ticklish with the pigs. The trampoline was realy fun in the park that was one of the best bits. We all hope to come again. Thank you. The Smiths say - This is a wonderful place to stay. A visit to Dartmouth Castle is a must. Thanks to Pete & Sue for being amazing hosts. We will definitely be back.

Another great week at Pitt Farm, thank you Pete & Sue! We came last year and enjoyed it so much that we had to visit you again. Shame the weather was cold & wet this time. The children enjoyed the playground and especially the swimming pool. Also seeing the animals. Thanks too for the Easter Egg hunt, great fun! Woodlands was great fun for all of us, young and old. Start Bay Inn at Torcross was good for lunch when we met up with another family, so 4 young children. Loved Totnes, shops, cafes and Harbour. Hope to see you again. Stayed in Snaffle April 2013

We have had a very relaxing visit, and loved all of the facilities here, - especially the swimming pool and tennis court. Everywhere around here is beautiful, towns, beaches and cafes. Our favourite place around here is the Woodlands Theme Park, a massive place with brilliant rides - not far away either! Tracy & Andy add Thanks to Pete & Sue for being such wonderful hosts! We love it here, very peaceful, loved the accommodation & great facilities. Would recommend Dartmouth for pub lunch, loverly harbour town, Woodlands theme park for kids of all ages as there is loads to do. Lovely beaches at Blackpool Sands & Slapton Sands (shame it rained though!). Would definately recommend "the Chase pub at Lustleigh" (near Bovey Tracey) for the best Sunday roast!

A fantastic week here in Snaffle, it has been so relaxing and Pete &Sue so very welcoming and warm without encroaching our space. The cottages are set in such a beautiful spot and we've explored lot's of Devon. Hope Cove was beautiful at low tide, perfect for our son, Noah, to explore. Datmoor - Badgers' holt at Dartmeet - provided a good spot for afternoon tea as well as fun on the rocks in the water. Salcombe & Brixham also lovely. Well done Pete & Sue for hosting such a fabulous location, the children loved the animals, games room & tennis court. Noah says Dear Pete & Sue, Thank you so much for such a great week down at Snaffle and Pitt Farm. We enjoyed the park, the tennis court, the games room and many more places. i loved feeding the chickens, the goats and Harry and Lulu. stayed in Snaffle Easter 2013

Ole, Helen, Aiden & Robert
We've had a very enjoyable second Easter visit. Outside it was more like "in the bleak mid-winter" with December temperatures and some snow flurries. Inside we enjoyed the warmth oft he cottage, Pete & Sue's welcome and all the facilites (no tennis allowed this year because of last year's broken shoulder!). we have enjoyed the local towns and the warm cafes rather than explore the countrysied this time. Good visits to Pennywell and further afield to the donkey sanctuary at Sidmouth. Let's hope for warmer weather Easter 2014 - we're sure we'll be back! P.S. We'd recommend the shop for the daily croissants and the walking murder myster tour of Totnes from the shop. Stayed in Mullen Easter 2014.

We had a lovely hoilday to celebrate Jo's 40th birthday! The children loved the pool, tennis court and table tennis. The cottage had everything we needed for a family holiday. We loved the little shop, which was great when we had the munchies or needed ice cream. An evening playing one of the many games kept us entertained and was the source of much laughter. We celebrated Jo's birthday and Easter day in the Fortescue Arms and had a deleicious meal with georgous desserts! really worth visiting. Thank you Stayed in Kimblewick Easter 2013.

Wow, what a lovely week we've had. Pool and games room were a great asset with two teenage boys! Snaffle cottage is absolutely lovely and suited all 3 generations of our family well. The Queens Arms at Slapton did a fabulous meal - mixed grill, plaice, various pies - and at great prices too, and a lovely warm welcome.

We used the cottage for a week to be with our family, some of whom we don't see as often as we'd like. Celebrated our twin daughters' 30th birthday the first weekened- we especially liked the space offered by the cottage and great use was made of the pool - particularly enjoyed by our 20 month old granddaughter, Chloe. The open fire provided many hours of entertainment owing to the challenge of keeping it alight! All in all a great venue. Our temporary hosts Mike and Margaret were lovely and very caring.

Dear Pete and Sue. Thank you for letting me and my family stay in your cottage Snaffle. The swimming pool, the games room, the tennis court, the chickens, the adventure playground were all fantastic, but my favorite of all was the swimming pool.

A big thank you to Sue & Pete for accommodating us here at Pitt Farm at such short notice. We have stayed in several places in Devon over the past few years, but we all agreed that this has been the most homely and welcoming of them all. The cream tea was delicious and enjoyed by all of us and the bottle of wine, very unexpected but went down easily on our first night here. Ella and Chloe (aged 5 & 2 years) loved the animals and trampoline and spent hours making a lot of things out of the basket of duplo. The pool was used by all of us. We wished that we could have stayed longer but we all needed to get back to our busy lives in the city of Bristol. We would definitely recommend Pitt Farm to all our friends and family as it is an ideal base for visiting Totnes, Dartmouthand beautiful beaches. Stayed in Kineton October 2012

Thanks so much for an amazing holiday - super location & fantastic facilities for our son. We've had a great holiday and can highly reccommend The Winking Prawn as a place to eat with small children - North Sands Salcombe, & when the tides out the North Sands is a lovely beach. Sunset at Hope Cove is also not to be missed. If you like mountain biking then drive to Tor Cafe, Princetown in the National Park. We hired bikes from there and went for a lovely long cycleride across the moors. Thanks so much to Pete & Sue - lovely hosts. we hope to be back. Stayed in Mullen September 2012

We feel quite sad to be leaving here tomorrow. We have had a very happy week with 3 generations in this house.

We had a great time at Pitt Farm. The swimming pool and tennis court are excellent and James (age 1) loves the farm animals. We did the treasure trail around Totnes and it was excellent. The Pitt Farm shop was very useful when we had forgotten something. Out of the beaches we went to Thurlstone was my favorite, although it had lots of seaweed. Bantham and Bigbury were also brilliant. Berry Pomeroy Castle, near Totnes was brilliant! It is a large castle and wood with an audio tour. The Totnes shops were also very nice. Kingsbridge farmers market was very nice and had lots of nice shops/stalls. The South Devon Chilli Farm is also a nice place to go to to purchase plants and chilli foood or a chilli meal. It was great here and I would love to come again. Stayed in Kimblewick August 2012

A big thank you from the Davis brood that aged between 1 yr and 49 yrs, all had a good time. Occupying Kineton & Cavasson, good use was made of the swimming ppol ansd the tennis court, with the little "honesty shop" also coming in handy on more than one occassion. Excursions were made to Woodlands Leisure Park, Trago Mills, Blackpool Sands, Salcombe amd Plymouth. Pub lunches were also enjoyed locally at the Dart Bridge & The Sportsman. Unlike some of the other contibutors in this book, our week was blessed with tip-top weather. In short, everyone went home with big smiles and greaty memories.

Pete & Sue, We definitely made the right choice to return abnd see you and hope to do so in the near future. We have had a fab time and spent most of our time in Salcombe town and North Sands and Dartmouth - two incredibly beautiful spots! For eating would highly recommend the Queens Arms in Slapton and The Fortescue Arms in East Allington. Both were great with the boys. As far as the cottage goes it has been great once again. It has everything we could possibly need and we have made much use of the pool, tennis court and games room. The shop is a brilliant addition although the treats have not done much for my waistline. Thank you for a wonderful welcome again! Diolch Yn Fawn (thank you) Gwelwch i eto (see you again). Stayed in Snaffle August 2012

AMAZING! The cottage is lovely and the facilities are fab. We played tennis, table tennis, feld the animals, swam, went to the play area and played pool. Pete & Sue are very kind. The shop sells everything you would need (Note from Pete, maybe not the new BMW). Lots of placesd to go, we recommend river Dart adventures but if you do go bting a swimming costumke. Overall 11/10. Stayed in Mullen July 2012.
The Belstens and the Gregorys
We had a really nice time in Martingale, despite the fact that the weather wasn't overly great! Most of the time the weather wasn't that bad, but we had the occassional drench. We had some lovely days out at Paignton Zoo, Becky Falls, Crealy and Bugbury on Sea beach. We have had a lovely time spending every day in the swimming pool and playing table tennis and pool in the games room. We had a brilliant holiday and felt very welcome, thank you. Look forward to visiting the area again. Stayed in Martingale July 2012
George and Louise
What a lovely cottage and beautiful surroundings! Enjoyed the swimming pool - a bonus. Recommend Bigbury on Sea for an absolutely fantastic beach - shallow enough for toddlers to play and we even managed to walk over to Burgh Island. Recommend the "Poop deck" restaurant in Brixham if you are a seafood lover. Will definitely come back in the future, maybe with our large family to stay in a bigger cottage. Loved the little "shop" and honesty box. Well done Pete & Sue on an idyllic place to stay. Stayed in Cavasson July 2012 P.S. Enjoyed the welcoming cream tea!

Great family holiday. The cottage had loads of space and toys! The pool was brilliant and we loved the "pets" esp the goats Brownie and Sparky (note from Pete, he's actually Cookie but got renamed this week).

Stayed in Kimblewick March 2012
Jessica (aged 11) This has been one of the best holidays I have ever had! I found the pool was always satisfying and tennis was a laugh! The animals are adorable and so is everything else. We have been to Burgh Island and I would recommend it to anyone. We have also taken a boat trip in Dartmouth to kill an hour or so but the wind sure blows you about. We have also visited Morwellham Quay and it was a wonderful day out. Many thanks for the wonderful hospitality. Lucia (aged 8) Pitt Farm has been the best holiday ever. The pool was the best part of the holiday for me. The games room is so fun, in fact everything was fun. The beach was fun and that was where we went yesterday, we had so much fun at Pitt Farm, we'll be back soon (we'll miss you Pitt Farm). Emma & Nick We have had a wonderful stay at Pitt Farm. Kineton is a lovely base for a holiday. My children have enjoyed the swimming pool, tennis court anf the animals. We highly recommend Morwellham Quay for a days visit.

Cold week but enjoyed the pool. Walked to the Fortescue Arms in East Allington - easy walk even for 3 year olds (but very muddy). Wondered around Totnes, painted pottery at China Blue. Visited Salcombe, the fantastic beach at Bigbury & the walk across to Burgh Island. Swimming every day - fantastic wirth the seven children in our party. Pelham is spacious, comfortable and well equipped. Fun watching Pete feed the animals in the afternoon. Thanks Pete & Sue for being so accommodating, informative, friendly - wonderful cream tea and scones on arrival. Also visited Dartmouth and Dartmoor. Sorry to be leaving - we've had a ball.! Many thanks. Stayed in Pelham half term February 2012

Many blessings to you both, hope this venture goes really well. again, a big thqank you for everything. Stayed in Mullen October 2011
Emma & Gemma
This by far the best "sleep 2" cottage we have ever stayed in. This cottage is spacious, very clean and comfortable, and all the furniture/contents are of high quality. The kitchen is very well equipped. The main reason we booked this cottage was the faciilties, and they didn't disappoint. We regret we didn't have time to play tennis, but once again, the facilities we did use(pool, table tennis, pool table) were in excellent condition. Having an internal phone system was very useful. We would absolutely recommend this to a friend, and the only reason we are not booking straight away is that we tend to go to a new destination, but if ever we were to return to the area, we will be back to Pitt Farm! It has set a new benchmark for cottage holidays. Also - the ice cream was delicious. Stayed in Cavasson October 2011.
Lee, Lo, Chang & Ing Family
Dear Pete & Sue, wonderful cottage in a relaxing yet fun family holiday. The weather was perfect for the October season, sometimes forgot it was autumn and Martingale made it even more perfect as we had everything we needed! Sue made some lovely scones, jam and clotted cream for our welcome - a Devon classic! The pool and games room kept us entertained day and evening. The nearby steam train and beach made easy and fun day trips! We'll definitely be back! Thank you very much, Best wishes. Stayed in Martingale October 2011
Kath & David
Lovely stay with good weather. The Seabreeze cafe at Torcross was nice for a cream tea. The area is really nice. Salcombe is well worth a visit and the ice cream is not to be missed. Dartmouth is always great to visit. The cottage is well placed and there is lots to do in the area. We shall certainly be back. Stayes in Snaffle October 2011
Jennifer & Mark, Battersea, Ontario, Canada
We have enjoyed our ten day stay at Pitt Farm and the welcoming hospitality of Sue & Pete Gray. Our visit was enhanced by the glorious weather we have had during our stay. Did lots of hiking and exploring old haunts from childhood days 50 years ago. Brought back so many memories. Thank you Sue & Pete for helping make our visit so good. P.S. The Crabshell in Kingsbridge is everything we have been told. Great food. Try the crab bisque - a meal in itself. Stayed in Cavasson September /October 2011

Our first time at Pitt Farm .....was wonderful. Harry (aged 2 1/2) loved the pool and feeding the animals. The "indian summer"weather helped... sunbathing and paddling on such lovely beaches at this time of year was amazing. Found "Oyster Shack" on way back from Bantham beach - what a find! Amazing seafood. Also ate a lovely meal at the Fortescue Arms, 5 minutes drive away. Hope to be back next summer.... thank you! Stayed in Mullen September 2011

From the moment we walked into the house, we felt the warmth and hospitality which was evident from all the lovely touches - from the milk in the fridge to the bottle of wine. You cannot hope to meet nicer than the team here: Pete, Sue, Graham, Cassie and Tom: they simply restore your faith in humanity! The weather was kind to us, the tennis court is awesome, the pool is great and the tranquility is priceless. Pete & team we wish you every success with your venture and thank you again for a memorable stay. Stayed in Kineton September 2011.

Tim, Beth, Amy & Nell
We had a lovely relaxing time here at Pitt Farm. We really appreciated the warm welcome, the cream tea on arrival, the wine and the milk(!!). We found Mullen and the farm as a whole very quiet and relaxing. Our girls (3 & 4) enjoyed the space and particularly enjoyed feeding the animals, the play area & the pool - we struggled to lure them away from the farm! The area as a whole has so much to offer with such beautiful beaches - we particularly enjoyed the charm of Hope Cove & scale of views at Bantham, Salcombe is definately worth a visit for the waterfront hustle & bustle. We have barely scratched the surface so will have to stay longer next time. Thank you so much for a fantastic week. Stayed in Mullen August/September 2011

We have had a lovely week and enjoyed Bantham and Hope beaches, Woodlands - a great "hit", crabbing at Dartmouth and a lovely river cruise.

The Clark Family (4 adults & 3 children ages 2,5 & 9)
have had a lovely holiday here in Kineton. The cottage is superbly equipped & the facilities are excellent for all ages! The weather was dry and sunny which did help! We visited lots of places including Pennywell Farm - a MUST with young children - we spent all day there, there is so much to see & do. Also the "round robin" on the boat from Totnes, train from Kigswear and open top bus from Paignton to Totnes. Good beaches for the little ones are Bantham and Bigbury - good rock pools and sand. China Blue at Totnes is excellent for glass blowing and other crafty things - good coffee shop too! All in all a really good visit. Stayed in Kineton August/September 2011

Pitt Farm has been a lovely location for our three generation family holiday this year and Kimblewick has proved an ideal cottage for 8 of us to stay. The little ones have loved the animals and the play area and we have all enjoyed the pool. Sadly we didn't get round to using the tennis court - maybe next time! This was our first visit to the South Hams and we relly love the area, with visits to Totnes and Dartmouth topping the list. Thank you for making us so welcome, we would love to come back. Rachel says "we splashed in the stream". Stayed in Kimblewick August 2011

This is our 12th consecutive year at Pitt Farm! Most of which has been in Mullen. Weather was not so kind to us for the last half of the week but it didn't deter Duncan from enjoying the surf. We had lovely meat again from the butchers in Loddiswell - we highly recommend it. Thanks again to Pete and Sue for a friendly welcome and the nice touches like wine, milk and cream tea on arrival! We'll be back again - especially if we could book the weather too! Stayed in Mullen August 2011 Note from Pete They have booked again for the next 2 years, congratulations to Ali on his A level results and Duncan gets the award for the longest time in the Sea (5 hours one day without a wet suit!)

This was our second visit to Pitt Farm, and has once again been a great week. The weather wasn't brilliant, but it didn't matter. We spent a lot of time swimming, playing tennis and pool. A good family day out was Woodlands Adventure Park. There was something for every age of child, and well worth the money. Bantham beach was lovely, even in the rain, as we had it all to ourselves, so the cricket ball didn't get in anyones way. Hope to return again. Stayed in Snaffle August 2011
Too many guests to list!
but we all had a wondeerful time at Pitt Farm. Enough space for ten of us to really enjoy ourselves, a really warm welcome (particularly the barbecue!) and lots of on-site facilities as well. All topped of by a beautifully pastoral view, whet more could we want? An excellent stay, thank you very much. Stayed in Pelham August 2011.

We have had a fabulous time! Loved Pitt Farm, the area, weather a little mixed! Pete & Sue have been great hosts. The children have loved the animals and play area. Bantham beach has been lovely, Woodlands great for children, sun or rain. The Fortescue Arms lovely - best meal we've had in a long time. Rockfish in Dartmouth delicious! See you next year Pitt Farm. Stayed in Mullen August 2011
The Barker Family
We had a lovely holiday - lovely spacious accommodation and hosts. we loved the pool, the tennis and watching the animals, as well as damming the stream. Locally we preferred Bigbury on Sea beach, although we had a lovely day on the shingle at Blackpool Sands. We had the best fish and chips at Start Bay Inn at Torcross. Becky Falls was well worth the trip to East Dartmoor. We would love to come again. Stayed in Snaffle August 2011.
The Trinick and Humphries Families
We have enjoyed a lovely week here and found the cottage and farm ideal for all ages from 1 to 70! Pete and Sue's BBQ was very good. We found the walk back from the Fortescue Arms at night a bit spooky but fun. stayed in Kimblewick August 2011.

We have had great fun here at Pitt Farm. We loved the tennis court and swimming pool, we visited them every morning. The cottage was great. I found there was enough room for us all to fit in properly. We loved using the BBQ outside and we ate on the outside bench most nights. We also found lots of good beaches. Bigbury was great and quite large and we had great surfing lessons on Bantham. We found both had great sand, rockpools and sea which baby James (9 months) enjoyed. We visited Dartmouth Castle on dressing up day and they did sword fighting, mini scenes of the castles history and a great walk. Unfortunately it was hard to park there. Another place we went to was a pub, The Fortescue Arms, we did a quick walk from Pitt Farm, ask Pete for directions. Overall this holiday was great and we are hoping to come here again next year. Stayed in Kimblewick July/August 2011.

The Harper-Cuss & Horne Family have had a fabulous week in Kineton, Pitt Farm. We thoroughly enjoyed the hospitality of Pete & Sue beginning the week with a much enjoyed bbq. The facilities here are great and the cottage very well equipped. We visited some great places, Hope Cove, Dartmouth, Salcombe and Burgh Island. For keen golfers also highly recommend the Championship Golf Course at Dartmouth. Watch out for the tricky par 5, 4th hole. A fantastic week - we will be back. Stayed in Kineton July 2011

Great holiday! The twins enjoyed the pool and loved the animals, we all enjoyed trips to Dartmouth, Salcombe and Totnes particularly, the Dolphin pub for lunch in Dartmouth and the Guildhall in Totnes. Best local attractions were Pennywell Farm and Woodlands Valley. Recommend Mill Street Steak house in Kingsbridge. Thanks to Pete & Sue for creating such a lovely environment for families with little ones! Stayed in Kimblewick July 2011.

What a fantastic week we've had in Cavasson - a perfect place to come for some much needed relaxation! It's such a lovely cottage and the site is fantastic. I can't believe the size of the pigs now!

Thank you so much for a lovely week away. It was our first holiday with our eight month old & the little touches of cot and high chair made things so much easier. He loved the baby swing and swimming pool. Having the pool to ourselves every day was fantastic. The setting is beautiful, so peaceful. We really enjoyed ourselves. Thank you.

We had a lovely stay in Kimblewick Cottage. The cottage is comfortable, clean and so well appointed. Martin says " A home from home". We were made to feel very welcome by Sue & Pete - thank you for the lovely scones etc and the delicious wine. We have made great use of all the facilities - especially the swimming pool and trampoline. It's a lovely setting and a beautiful area. We hope to come back. Many thanks! Stayed in Kimblewick May 2011
We had a super family week here, blessed by dry if not truly warm weather. the evening walk to the Fortescue Arms has become a delightful ritual past the sheep and the huge expanse of bluebells. We had great day trips to the South Devon Railway to see Thomas and his friends and to Paignton Zoo. Both great value for money and more than you can do in a day. both willl be worthy of return visits when we next come, albeit there is so much more to see. Staying here (on the Farm) for a day is fun too. We like the light and bright public rooms in the cottage, and having a good sized lounge. The pool, the animals and the play areea gave us a lot to do. Thank you Pitt Farm, see you again. Stayed in Kineton May 2011

We've had a fabulous time, the welcome pack of scones were very tasty - compliments to the "cook". Swimming pool, tennis & table tennis enjoyed by all. Cottage very comfortable with everything we needed. Thanks for organising the Easter Egg Hunt - it was enjoyed by the little ones and the big ones! Stayed in Pelham Easter 2011
Well, where do we start! From the first conversation with Pete we knew it would be good. We had 3 cottages in total 17 adults and 13 kids. Just so much to do for the kids around the farm over and above the swimming pool. Well thought our for kids...which means parents can relax and are therefore rested................ The place here is glorious, friend & family had a great time...........We willl be back. Stayed in Kimblewick, Kineton & Mullen April 2011.
Pitt Farm is a very special place to stay, peaceful and welcoming. nice touch with the lovely animals. xxx Stayed in Kineton April 2011
