The Cottages

Within the Blackdown Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in Devon


Bidwell Farm sits in the heart of the Blackdown Hills, an area of outstanding natural beauty. Our 5 acres of private grounds ensures that your stay is peaceful and a true slice of the Devon idyll. Attention to detail and much pride have earned our cottages a 5 Star Gold rating year on year. Our cottages are full of character and combine stylish décor with cosy log burning stoves. Each cottage can sleep 6 guests or 12 if rented together. Our cottages are very well equipped so you can start enjoying your holiday the moment you arrive. The extensive grounds around the cottages give abundant space for children to play, while running safely and freely, having fun on our swings and clatterbridge. We provide a range of outdoor sporting equipment for family games and the village tennis courts are within walking distance. We are only a 20 minute drive away from some of Britain’s most popular beaches – Sidmouth, Lyme Regis, Branscombe and Beer. Guests may also try fine dining or a cookery course at the prestigious River Cottage. There are beautiful walks locally, or on Dartmoor, Exmoor or along the South West Coastal Path overlooking the stunning Jurassic Coast. The pretty village of Upottery village is an 8 minute walk away with a welcoming pub serving good family meals. The pretty market town of Honiton is a 10 minute drive with great restaurants and cafes and also well known for its antique shops. A welcome tea tray and gift pack of award winning local foods awaits you on your arrival.

Meet the owner

Caroline and Toby Thomas

Richard and Patsy bought Bidwell Farm in 1993 as a derelict farm with only a few walls intact! With their loving care they restored the farmhouse, then the Haybarton and finally finishing the Cowbyre in 2008. When Patsy and Richard's daughter, Caroline moved to the West Country with her family she took over the day to day running of the cottages. Caroline manages all the bookings, payments, queries and changeovers. However, as Patsy and Richard still live onsite they will often meet and greet guests on arrival.
