"We, two families and two grandparents traveled the breadth of England from Norfolk to Devon with some torrid traffic along the way to Ritson Farm a place we had never stayed at so there was excitement but prepared for a reality check. We need not have worried as Ritson was such a relaxing place to stay at. With four boys and six adults we never felt like we were tripping over each other. Light and airy, a garden just big enough for some games and a super kitchen-diner made for easy living and coped with the bustle of holiday life. The upstairs bedroom and bathrooms were a perfect combination for our two families whilst grandparents occupied the ground floor bedroom, the latter proving to be a relatively quiet location. I will mention three adverse points but these in no way would put us off from booking again. Firstly, the dishwasher was rubbish, we practically serviced this three times clearing spray arms etc, perhaps better quality tablets than those provided might help. Secondly the ground floor bed is a double and for us too small. Finally, the flies. Ok Ritson is surrounded by farmland so flies sort of go with the territory but what a pain. Now back to the good stuff. Ritson is far from the madding crowds which is great yet its location is super for so many locations in the South Hams whether beaches, river towns of sea resorts. Ritson is a warm, welcoming house with nice arty touches. It swallowed our tribe and coped with a full on holiday frenzy, Well done, yes right on, yes Ritson!" - David - August 2021

"Ritson Farm felt like home from the moment we arrived. The living room is so relaxing and the kitchen a beautiful place to cook and eat. Kitchen was very well equipped and the whole house felt bigger than we’d expected, down to the lovely entrance hall to the enormous utility room which was fantastic for storing bags, doing washing and keeping our bikes. Upstairs was brilliant for the extended family, one family on one side of the staircase with 2 bedrooms and bathroom and same again on the other side. The little ones loved visiting the donkeys and the walk from the door down to the river and through the fields was idyllic. Great location for beaches, pubs and local sights. Thanks Debbie for your help when our car battery died! Hope to return." - HW - August 2021

"We had a lovely family holiday at Ritson Farm It is a beautiful, well appointed, spacious house, and all the five bedrooms are a good size. The communal areas are also very comfortable and the whole house is very well maintained. It has a large utility room which was really useful when we came back from the beach. The kitchen is large with pretty blue painted units, and if you like to cook it has all the kitchen equipment that you would require. The garden is really pretty and a lovely place to spend time. There is a lovely large patio with a big table and benches, and we ate outside every evening which was lovely. My only criticism would be there were not enough comfortable garden chairs for 10 adults to “lounge” in and spend time comfortably all together. The location is great for easy access to Totnes, Dartmouth and Kingsbridge and all the beaches in that surrounding area. There were also some lovely walks across the fields directly from the house which we really enjoyed. We had a lovely week, thank you." - Jo - July 2021

"I saw the pictures of this property on the website, but held reservations because they often show the best bits and no negative points. However on arrival this property exceeded all my expectations. It is well equipped and the owners of the property were on hand without being in any way intrusive . Perfect for adults and children we had a fabulous week with our 2 sons, their wives and 3 grandchildren. The house is spacious with a good sized garden. We spent a week there in June 2021 and it certainly ranks amongst our best holiday destinations. Many thanks to owners Richard and Debbie." - Atkinson - June 2021

“This is a great property in a brilliant location for family holidays. We came with our 3yr old and 7m old and had a great time on the Steam Railway, Woodlands Theme Park, Goodrington Sands, Dartmouth, Salcombe and Totnes despite poor weather - all quick and easy to get to from the Farm. The house is really well stocked and everything is high quality (good quality cot and high chair much appreciated), with light and spacious rooms. We had a great BBQ on the patio and really enjoyed the wide variety of birds appearing just outside the kitchen window. Richard and Debbie were nearby in case we needed anything (we didn't!) We hope to come back! Thanks!” Chris - May 2021

"Covid destroyed plans for my entire family of 6 adults and two infants going to Tuscany. Glad , in the end , that it did as we found this great secluded farmhouse. Clean as could be wished for. comfortably accommodating us all. Great terrace and nice garden. Very well equipped . Only minor quibble the mattress in the second double bedroom was a bit hard, but after a good ay out it did not prevent us sleeping. Nice sitting room . A safe location if young children involved . I hope we might return -if the owners who were generally about, as it is their home on their farm, will have us!" Simon - September 2020

"We have just had a fantastic week at Ritson Farm. The house itself was beautiful with plenty of space for 10 people. The location was excellent- so close to Dartmouth, Dittisham, Salcombe and Kingsbridge . The fresh flowers, food basket and veggie box were lovely extras as were the dog treats. Thank you" Ruth - August 2020

"We stayed at Ritson farm last week. The accommodation has everything you need for a very comfortable week self catering. With one of its bedrooms downstairs it's ideal for anyone taking an older family member. The adjoining bathroom is huge with a walk in shower.
The kitchen has a massive fridge/freezer and opposite is a massive utility room with a further large fridge and under unit freezer. Hot water is plentiful and the beds very comfortable. We found the duvets hot and heavy but in fairness the weather was excessively hot. The opportunity to eat out on the covered patio and have a BBQ was particularly pleasant overlooking the beautiful garden with donkeys and their foals in the field behind. Both Debbie and Richard, who own the property and live near by, were very kind and helpful. We hope to go back." Ann Horrocks and Family - August 2020

It suited us perfectly: ground floor bedroom and bathroom for me (granny) - calm and quiet; one family and child on one side of the landing; the other with 9 week baby + 2 boys 3 and 6 on the other. A bathroom each - couldn't be better. Lovely terrace and garden; utterly lovely countryside. Furnishing family-oriented and comfortable. Household equipment all good" Janet Yapp and Family - 31st July 2020

The house is a good size and layout with everything you would need to stay as a group. Beautiful garden and great opportunity to watch the many birds coming to feed outside. Good location, secluded but not too remote and close to beaches and interesting towns. The owners were very friendly and came to help us out quickly when we called with a question. The perfect place for our staycation :)" Alison - July 2020

"What a wonderful stay we have had! To be greeted with fresh flowers and homegrown vegetables was lovely!
Beautiful outlook, lovely touches throughout especially for our puppy!
Hope Cove, Dartmouth, Eastportlemouth were all beautiful an we definitely recommend.
The bedding was slightly heavy for our summer stay but we were grateful for such lovely weather" The Savvas - July 2020

We created wonderful memories at Ritson Farm with 3 generations and a dog! It was very comfortable and perfect for a large family. Location was great - close enough to towns and the coast. Facilities were excellent. It had everything any family could possibly need, including a boules set for the garden and a dog kit for your four legged friend!" July 2019

"We were really impressed with this lovely house, which felt more like a home than a holiday let. It is situated in rural surroundings with far reaching views of the beautiful Devon hills with a field of donkeys at the end of the garden and chickens wondering around." Michael - June 2019

We loved Ritson Farm. A great space for 3 generations to stay. The farm has a real homely feel often lacking in holiday rentals. We all had lots of space to relax. Kids loved the animals you can see and hear from the house. It had all the things we needed from a well stocked kitchen to logs in the basket. Our problem with working the range was sorted asap. It is also a great location for visiting lots of places Dartmouth, Totnes, Salcombe. All in all a lovely place and we throughly enjoyed our stay. Many thanks" Carol - April 2019
