About Lesley Farley

Les and Lesley Farley we moved down to Devon from Surrey to start a new business, We brought Stonehayes Farm with planning permission to convert the run down farm into luxury cottages.

Lesley Farley purchased this barn in 2007

Why Lesley Farley chose East Devon

We decided to move to Devon as this is where we use to holiday with our children when they were young. We have put a lot of thought into the design we want our holiday makers to feel at home.

What makes this barn unique

At Stonehayes Farm the beautiful countryside is on your door step the views are breath taking.

Guestbook comments from the owner

A beautiful and very comfortable cottageand a friendly and welcoming place. We had a great and memorable week. Our children enjoyed the garden, the playground and of course to help with the animal feeding. We enjoyed the chichens watching us through the gack door window.Holiday was far to short. Lots more to see in Devon and Dorset.Thanks also for the Welcome pack which could not have been more appreciated, when we arrived on a sunday evening.

Les & Lesley,

Congratulations with your top quality-cottages: all the work really paid off!

Our stay at Stonehayes was fabulous: we, the grown-ups, enjoyed the garden for our morning coffee, and our evening barbeque, the children loved the trampoline, the sheeps and the pigs.

And, hey, with the weather we had, who needs the Côte d'Azur, when you can come to Stonehayes...

Thanks again for a fantastic holiday!

Autumn short break

  • 5 of 5

A lovely setting with walks to the nearby hill fort. Very pleasant and well equipped accommodation, nice for chilling out in the evening after an active day. Friendly and helpful hosts. Inquisitive and happy farm animals were fun. Walkable from Honiton (with reasonable rail connections) so a car not really needed for people who are cycling or walking. Excellent games room. It was a really enjoyable break.

Relaxing stay with much luxury for whole family

  • 5 of 5

We spent one week with our three children (4,11,14) in July 2011 at Stonehayes farm. The house is equipped with high quality massive wooden furnitues, tastefully and very clean. The children loved it to jump on the trampoline, to feed the chicken and to play table tennis or pool. We had home made bread, eggs and ham. We visited the coast, Exeter and Dartmoor, which were easily reachable by car. Many thanks and greeting from hanover, germany to the owners Lesley and Les!

Cider House Combe Raleigh Honiton Devon

  • 5 of 5

We travel frequently and widely and this is the best value and highest quality self catering cottage that we have ever rented in the UK and one of the best we have stayed at anywhere. It is a real credit to its owners Les & Lesley. The cottage is tastefully fitted out and furnished with good quality furniture and equipment (not hand me downs) it has everything we needed and nothing we didnt need and was very clean and well presented

The host and hostess are delightful and thoughtful. We had flown in from Australia and driven directly from the airport. The welcome was warm; anticipating that we would not be able to buy supplies on the way down to the cottage (on a Sunday evening) sufficient provisions were provided to get us through the evening and breakfast.

The cottage is situated in the best of Devonshire countryside, a short (3 miles 5km) drive to nearby Honiton which offers virtually all you need on a daily basis; Exeter, several beautiful villages and coastal towns are all within reasonable driving reach. In all, this is an ideal location for an enjoyable, relaxing and memorable holiday in a beautiful cottage in some of the UK's most beautiful countryside.

A fantastic place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for the last week of August. The house is equipped to a very high standard. The owners provided fresh bread, eggs, jam and milk which was a lovely touch. There is so much to do around for couples and families. The children enjoyed collecting the eggs and feeding the animals each day. The owners were lovely and very helpful. We loved it so much that we have booked to go back next year.

top notch accomodation and very friendly owners

  • 5 of 5

A warm friendly welcome awaited us at Cider house cottage. Lesley and Les are nice hosts - there if you need them but not on invasive. The grounds and setting are just perfect. Hens and ducks meander around the grounds and are a delight.

A very nice "welcome pack" awaited us of home made bread, butter jam and free range eggs from the family hens. A rather nice bottle of wine was in our fridge too. Milk tea coffee and sugar were provided and salt and pepper.

How many times have you stayed in accomodation where you have had to remember to pack the the ktichen sink? Not here! there is enough to get you started and it is greatly appreciated.

The quality of fittings and furntiture is absolutely exceptional and the same in all the cottages. Leather sofas - duck down duvets - granite worktops. Simply perfect.

We will definately be back.
