Guest Feedback and Testimonials

Feedback is of utmost importance to us here at Unique Home Stays, and we love to hear back from our guests to ensure that we have not only fulfilled, but exceeded their expectations every step of the way. But don't just take our word for it, read what previous guests have said about Rydon below:

Everything was lovely. Owners were close by but they were so lovely. Well equipped and stunning property. Weather was great during our stay so we could to use the pool lots, which was great. Thank you.

The owner was just wonderful! So friendly, warm and helpful. The property is lovely, the pool is a fantastic size, the grounds are beautiful and in the most idyllic and peaceful location. We´re very sad to leave and will definitely look to stay at Rydon again.

We had a truly fantastic stay at Rydon farm and would love to return one day, the owners were lovely and some of the nicest people we have ever met. We arrived slightly later than anticipated, after 7pm and our nearly two year old daughter was tired and hungry to which the owners were kind enough to bring some of their family´s dinner over for her.Our main reason for being in Devon was our wedding on the 18th of March and on the night before our departure the owners popped in with a beautiful flower arrangement for our special day, a gift and card. We were truly overwhelmed by this and cannot thank them enough, they were truly amazing hosts. We would like to thank Unique Home Stays for arranging our stay and the owners for such a fantastic experience.

The property was beautiful and well maintained, it was also located in a wonderful area. The main highlight was how wonderful the owners Matt and Ali were, they made our stay so comfortable and happy. We loved our stay at Rydon, and being our second time there with friends it exceeded our expectations as usual. It is truly a magical place and made us forget the stress of life in London. We hope to visit Rydon again soon!

Had a lovely stay, it was really nice. The owners were lovely and very friendly (homemade sausages were delicious). We would definitely stay again. The property was finished to a high standard and exceeded our expectations for a self-catering property.

A truly amazing place with views to die for and the owners were amazing hosts!

Rydon is a fantastic property. It has a great pool and inside it is clean and warm with beautiful furnishings and fittings. The location is perfect for visiting local sights. The owners were very helpful, they even unpacked our shopping delivery for us when it arrived before we did! Another fantastic Unique Home Stays experience, we hope to be back for more!

Discreet, quiet and cos; Rydon is a perfect country cottage hideaway for couples and friends seeking a private weekend getaway. With Exeter not far and the Devonshire coast a little drive away, this is a perfect base to explore or unwind.

Rydon was an exceptional property that offered everything we wanted and more. Matt and Ali (the owners) were beyond helpful and wonderful to deal with. We would recommend the property to anyone.

This is our fifth Unique Home Stay - always great comfort and quality!

Attention to detail was fantastic. There was nothing other than our own food that we needed to bring. Milk/eggs/butter/oil/tea provided; dishwasher and washing machine really helped. Flowers and soft towels. Just perfect. Beautiful location, stunning accommodation. We aim to return next year.

Fantastic property in a stunning location!

Everything about this was excellent. We had an amazing time. Ali and Matt were lovely and very welcoming. We book 2-3 cottages a year and this is by far the best experience and property we have ever had. We will be using Unique Home Stays exclusively from now on!

We absolutely loved Rydon, and left feeling relaxed and happy. The lack of wi fi and signal was fab; it´s so nice to be away from the real world. The hosts were very friendly and helpful. Rydon was spectacular and we will be using you again.

Thank you for our wonderful few days at Rydon, we really did feel at home with all the lovely touches about the place. Also thanks for ordering that weather – that was a really good touch

Rydon was perfect. We had an absolutely fantastic week there thanks to the beautifully finished barn and all of the brilliant touches provided. Both Alison and Unique Home Stays were brilliant from booking to our departure and we will definitely be booking again.

The barn is beautiful and both Matt and Ali were delightful. Rydon was very beautifully prepared and we had a decorated Christmas tree and lovely flowers on arrival which made it very special.

The property was stunning, absolutely immaculate and truly relaxing to stay in for the week. Would absolutely recommend it. Alison was very friendly and helpful and really cared about us having a good time.

The property was absolutely beautiful - it was immaculate and really well equipped - simple things like the milk, tea, sugar, salt, pepper and dish washer tablets etc made a real difference - the owners Matt and Ali were really friendly and it was all very relaxed. Great place - perfect location for a quiet weekend away from it all - we didn´t get back in the car once! Will definitely be returning.

Rydon was lovely, the owners friendly and it was in a lovely location.

A stunning barn conversion with close attention to detail and lovely personal touches throughout. A wonderful welcome from Ali and Matt who were also on hand throughout our stay.We will definitely be back next year. This is our best property find to date (bearing in mind that we have returned to one holiday home 17 times!) and we simply cannot fault the luxury and comfort of this stunning property and the warm, warm welcome from Ali & Matt.

The whole Unique Home Stay experience was excellent from the booking to the end of our holiday, especially the owners of the property they were great. It was well worth spending a bit extra on a British holiday in superb style.

Rydon Farm was outstanding in every way. The property, location and hosts were excellent. The attention to detail was beyond any experienced before. The holiday would have been perfect if only we had sunshine, even UHS cannot control the weather unfortunately.

We had a fabulous time at Rydon.  It’s a gorgeous location, the barn works really well and South Devon is a delight!  Most significant tough is that the owners are lovely people, generous, thoughtful and good sports!
