About Judith Hurford
Julian, myself and 3 children live here at Farwood Barton, Julian was born here, and I moved here when we got married. Julian runs the dairy herd and helps out with the holiday cottages. I run the holiday cottages and do the farm accounts. We live here with 190 dairy cows, approx 40 calves most of the year, with some sheep during the winter, 2 cats Spoldge and Trixey, a working dog called Rex who love catching the ball with the visitors!
Why Judith Hurford chose East Devon District
Farwood Barton is a working dairy farm, the farm has been in the family for 3 generations, the original farm buildings in the Victorian Court Yard had got out of date for modern farming practices, they were crying out to be converted in to holiday lets. We converted them in 2009, we now enjoy having visitors staying with us and sharing our beautiful location. We as a family love living here in the countryside, we enjoy everything the countryside has to offer us, our livelihood, the quietness, our own space, the views, we still enjoy waking up every morning looking out to the wonderful view over the Coly Valley and beyond, summer or winter.
What makes this Cottage unique
Farwood Barton gives you high quality, modern, accommodation, hidden from the hustle and bustle of life, whilst being close to the Jurassic Coast beaches and road links into the South West:- A30, A303, A35, A3035 and M5. We want everyone to have a truly relaxing stay, and to leave feeling refreshed after a memorable time here at Farwood Barton.

Life on an active dairy farm
We loved the perfect blend of historic buildings and modern facilities. Seeing the dairy cows outside your window added to the country life feeling that we were looking for. Was a bit of distance from services so having a car is essential. Overall a great stay.
Lovely quiet accommodation. Very warm for our January stay with a simple to use woodburner as an extra. All fittings top quality - we could not fault it.
Very well equipt and clean.Fantastic views peace and quiet .
We had a fabulous week at Farwood Barton. Wonderful views across the valley of green,lush patchwork fields with dairy cows dotted amongst them. A warm friendly welcome awaits you from the proprietors not forgetting the lovely farm hands Doug and Rex the two dogs. A really memorable holiday one we will remember for ever.
Great spot and lively cottage.
Fantastic - really lovely place
The house was modern, comfortable and clean. It had everything we needed, and a lovely comfortable double bed. It was great being on the farm with all the animals round about. But the thing that really stood out for us was the games room with fully equipped ping pong, table football and a full sized snooker table! We could hardly bear to go to bed! Outside there was even a tennis court! The owners were very welcoming and friendly. We only stayed for 3 nights, and we were not on holiday, so we can't recommend any local restaurants or anything like that - but the farm is a great place to stay - perfect for a family.
Well fitted property. All mod cons. Has character and comfort. Peaceful in the midst of countryside
Cannot fault any of it. Warm and clean. Comfortable. Beautiful property no
