Accommodation and prices
This award winning, hidden gem is tucked away in the rolling hills of East Devon. Set in a rural location close to the road network, Smallicombe makes an ideal base for exploring the West Country. This farmstead offers a range of accommodation options from self catering to B&B. The Granary and Cider Barrel would be suitable for 4 or 5 person families. Both are well appointed and tastefully decorated. The Farmhouse offers Bed and Breakfast in style, with room for a 4 person family. Summer peak prices for The Granary start at £895 per week with short break options also available; we think you’ll find these prices very competitive for this part of the world!
