Owner Description

Devenish Pitt Farm and Stables is situated in the picturesque East Devon Coly Valley set in 260 acres of tranquil countryside. A peaceful country setting in an area of outstanding beauty (AOB), four miles from the market town of Honiton and a short drive from the numerous coastal towns and villages along the Jurassic coastline.

The comfortable static home is in a peaceful, idyllic spot. Visitors can enjoy breath-taking views across the valley from the decked veranda and wonderful walks around the farm on foot or horseback. There is a parking space beside the home and additional parking close by. There is plenty of open space around the caravan to relax in or for children to play.

The cosy home (8-berth) comfortably sleeps 6 people with three bedrooms - double, twin and bunk bedrooms all with electric heaters. There is a spacious lounge/dining area with gas heater, fully equipped kitchen, a shower room with toilet and wash basin. Visitors can relax and admire the spectacular view from the decked veranda where they can enjoy barbecues and meals outside. They also have the use of a large garden. Access to the home is by decked ramp. All equipment, bed linen, tea towels and gas are included. We ask visitors to bring their own towels or these can be hired if you prefer.

Come to enjoy the quiet tranquillity of the countryside around you. Numerous walks, bird and wildlife watching. Local places of interest with fishing, golf, sandy/pebble beaches, etc all minutes away. Stunning coastal footpaths over the cliff tops along the World Heritage Jurassic coastline just a short drive away. Devenish Pitt is an ideal base for exploring Devon, Dorset, Somerset, Dartmoor, Exmoor and the south coast.

We have many farm animals and pets. Willing volunteers can help around the farm and groom and help look after our many friendly horses and ponies.

The riding school is a short walk from the caravan. We offer lessons and hacks from a friendly team of instructors. Lessons are given in the indoor school or outside menage. Hacks and family rides are available in our beautiful countryside. For those who have never ridden before we can offer part lesson followed by part gentle ride out. However, the caravan is situated in a private spot so guests that are not interested in the horses or farm will be equally as happy as those that may be very keen this aspect of the holiday.

Andy & Family 4/10/2018
We arrived in the dark to a well lit, warm and cosy home. We woke to the wonderful views and friendly horses. This it the most relaxed week-end we've had in months. Beautiful surroundings, well equipped and comfy home, obliging and helpful hostess... what more do we need?” Many thanks.

The Mayson Family 7/10/2018
“Thank you. We had a great time. If we were able to give 10 stars out of 5 for location we would have done! Your notes about walks and general amenities in the area are first class... by far the best we've seen in any holiday let”

Mark and family, Bristol 22/8/18
One of the most memorable stays we've had. My daughter wanted to celebrate her 8th Birthday in style and stay in a caravan somewhere nice. Alison's home is not just "nice"...it's really amazing! The caravan is much bigger than we expected and had everything we needed, and was really nice and cosy, but as we arrived late (not an issue for Alison) we didn't get to see it's surroundings until morning. When we threw open the curtains before heading off for riding lessons we were literally lost for words! One of the most beautiful settings of any home we've been to. My daughter said it was the best Birthday ever and wants to go back as soon as possible. She's right!” Thank you so much for our stay and making Elora's Birthday so special!

Gary & Shiela 14-16 Sept 2018
Thank you for lovely accommodation. We enjoyed our weekend break and wish we could've stayed longer at this nice stop with you Alison, thanks. Very good equipped caravan.

Kayleigh 8/9/2018

The Joyce Family, Chris, Connie, Ruby and Charlie Aug 18 2018
We’ve had a wonderful time staying in the caravan enjoying the views and attention of ‘Cookie’ every morning and evening! Thanks to Alison and Steven for being great hosts and very welcoming. We enjoyed the horse riding and attractions and will come back soon.

Katherine, Ian, Alby & Tilly Aug 2018
Thank you for a wonderful week at Devenish Pitt. The relaxation and peacefulness that we found was amazing. The view from the mobile home is so beautiful and it was an honour to share this view with you. Alby and Tilly loved their time at the stables, thank you. We hope to see you again soon.

The Hill Family, Bedfordshire 4-11 Aug 2018
Such a beautiful and relaxing stay in this peaceful part of Devon. We will miss the view from the window and the quietness that we have enjoyed over this week. Lovely walks in the countryside around the farm and on local beaches. (Beer is a must!) The children enjoyed mornings at the stables and visits from Cookie and Spice have been enjoyed by us all. Thank you.

The Chen Family, Bristol July 28th 2018
We feel abundantly blessed to have spent our summer holiday here! So peaceful and tranquil with views of ‘area of outstanding natural beauty’ from our windows. Something for everyone to do; the children enjoyed horse riding, playing with the dogs and running around exploring the farm. A convenient location to explore other local attractions (Beer Caves, Donkey Sanctuary) and the beaches! We couldn’t have asked for more! Thank you Alison and Steven.

Joanna Lorenz 20th July 2018
Gorgeous spot in deep Devon countryside with amazing views , mobile home comfy and clean, and perfect for walking and of course riding opportunities as the horses are just steps away. We loved our brief stay - gorgeous spot in country and very impressed by the stables, thanks very much.

Joanne and John Snow, Hertfordshire 30/6-3/7/18
This location is paradise - if everyone could access somewhere this magical the world would be a better place! Everyone and every creature here is so warm & friendly. People aren't like that anymore where we live & most of the wildlife has gone. You are truly blessed & so were we to be given the opportunity to share your bliss - thank you so very much - we take a piece of this Grace home within our hearts forever. PS Can we move in??!!

Wendy & Jurgen, The Netherlands 16-30th June 2018
What an amazing place! Beautiful views as far as you can see. Two weeks of sunshine. It's a walker's paradise, beaches with fossils (we think Charmouth is the best), woodland, fields. Saw buzzards, red kites and albino deer from the caravan deck. One evening we saw a badger in the second field from the caravan. Went riding with Alison which was great. Alison and Steven you live in a beautiful place never forget that! You're very lovely people and we had a great time xxx Good tip The Otter Inn at Weston EX143NZ Great food, v nice garden with a stream to play in for the kids.

The Davies's May 2018
Back to reality for us. We had a lovely time and your caravan is spotlessly clean with everything that you need and homely little extras. The views are stunning and sat here now in our house looking out onto the street (and the streetlight haha) we so wish we were back there. Its raining here as well!!
Many thanks for your friendly welcome and allowing us the freedom to explore all over your land and meeting the animals. I miss the silence and the darkness. Hope to see you again.

Julie and Pete, South Wales 6-11 May 2018
We have had a lovely relaxing break in a beautiful place. The caravan is well equipped in a peaceful, stunning location. We will miss the spectacular views from all directions and the peace and quiet. We have thoroughly enjoyed all the local walks and meeting the animals. Thank you very much for your kind & welcoming hospitality.

Very comfortable and well equipped caravan with absolutely wonderful views, so lovely and quiet and peaceful. Alison and Steven are great hosts and very friendly and welcoming.

The Proctor Family 22-29/7/17
Lovely well-equipped caravan and we couldn't ask for a more peaceful, stunning setting! A great untouched area of East Devon. Alfie and Lily loved helping with the horses, riding and of course 'Cookie' the dog! Thanks for a wonderful stay.

Barbara and Ted, Essex 18-24 June 2017
Not only good weather but this lovely view too! Very comfy and well equipped caravan, great phone signal and fast internet. It was a treat to watch the horses and sheep. What a superb week so pleased to have picked this location I will not hesitate in recommending your mobile home. Thank you Alison.

Sarah and Nick, Oxfordshire 9-16/6/2017
Lovely location and fab views. Peaceful and hidden away, just perfect. Evenings spent on the decking watching the valley and on two nights we saw badgers at the bottom of the field running around, just magical! Loved waking up to the sounds of birds, sheep and horses.

The Beaney Family 27/5/2017
Absolutely fabulous mobile home – tucked away and just as advertised. Alison and Steven were welcoming and just around the corner if you need anything. The views from the decking area are stunning – what a lovely spot for breakfast. Mobile home very well equipped. My son enjoyed helping out with the horses and sheep. Hope to come back!! Many thanks
