'a cosy place to be'…
A warm welcome awaits…
Rob and Jane Mathews welcome you to Broad Close Farm, Rackenford. Cosy Self-catering holiday apartments and accommodation for a truly Mid Devon Holiday experience. We are a working small-holding and aim to produce as much of our own food as possible. Our two self-catering one-bedroom apartments are available for short-term holiday lets. We are happy to accept a maximum of two well behaved dogs for a small additional fee. The apartments adjoin our farmhouse and share their own courtyard and a further fenced garden area. It is an easy level short walk to the village of Rackenford which has a Community Shop run by volunteers. There is also a dog friendly thatched pub, The Stag Inn, a 13th century pub rumoured to be the oldest in Devon. We look forward to seeing you…
Come and enjoy the peaceful tranquillity of Broad Close. Relax and unwind. Chat to our resident sows and their very special friend Barry the boar. We have an abundance of wild birds along with our beautiful cockerel and his loyal hens, who wander around the Orchard. If you are lucky you might even get a glimpse of our hares who occasionally come up our drive and across the yard to return to our fields!
Well behaved dogs are welcome to stay but please advise us if you're bringing your pet at time of booking.

"we instantly got a feel for the place when we arrived, being treated so warmly by Jane who had left us eggs and milk for our arrival and baked us the most beautiful loaf of bread. Nothing seems to be too much trouble for Jane & Rob"
