1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?

The beauty and peace of the environment, the meadow we looked out on, and the challenging cycling up and down steep Devon Hills. The owners have made an organic and natural habitat for insects, birds and butterflies and the fact there are only 3 lodges and 2 other residencies on 25 acres made this specially peaceful which is why we had our holiday in term time. The hired electric bikes were very important for exploring the lovely countryside for us 70 + year olds!

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?

Relax, recycle and enjoy the wildlife and glorious countryside, consider hiring an electric bike so you dont have to use your car at all!

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

We used the local village to buy our newspaper and basics, but we mainly bought our own food. A farm shop 3 minutes bike ride away sold local meat, eggs etc and were very helpful and made sandwiches for us when we ran out of bread. Our holiday costs were to go to the continuing improvements on the farm...we saw the straw house converted from a barn and may be stables will be used in the future for ? carers for the disabled, as there is access in the straw house.

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?

My husband has Parkinsons and the onset of dementia, so as he still cycles this was for me as his carer, a simple way to refresh my soul and rest together away from demands at home. Ian and Maggie made us feel at home and were very helpful and available should we need anything we hadnt thought of, even suppplying us with notes as we explored different circular routes. We cycled 20 miles a day. The cool weather helped I must say.

Thanks for your lovely comments and we really enjoyed hosting you here. It is nice to have a little help up these Devon hills. I hope you have plenty more miles on the road.
