About Synderborough Farm

Suitable For

Couples (and an infant), dogs – yes. Under 21s – no.


There's direct access from the site to the River Sid and it's only a mile or so further to the lovely, thatched village of Sidbury and its pub. It's an ideal base for walkers, with Sidbury bang in the middle of the 40-mile East Devon Way (01404 46663). There are a couple of local circular walks from Sidbury, for glorious countryside and coastal views, or head out west along the Way on the eight-mile stretch to Aylesbeare Common Nature Reserve, one of the few remaining southern lowland heathland habitats in England.

For a day by the seaside, Sidmouth — the so-called jewel of the East Devon Jurassic  Coast — is just a four-mile drive south. It's a charming place with lots to do, from shopping in the old streets to taking a peek to see what's on at Kennaway House (01395 515551), a Regency mansion that's used for all sorts of events, from art exhibitions to food festivals. There are two town beaches here — sand and shingle, backed by cliffs — and plenty more along the coast in either direction. Sidmouth is also on the South West Coast Path, which means more dramatic coastal walking, from short circular strolls to longer days across the cliffs with amazing views. The rest of the spectacular Devon coast is pretty much on your doorstep too, with famed destinations like Budleigh Salterton, Branscombe, Beer, and Lyme Regis all within a 30-minute drive of Synderborough Farm.

Food & Drink

The Hare and Hounds (01404 41760) at Putts Corner, just half a mile away, is a great old pub with terrific views and a carvery that people travel miles for. There's also really good bistro food and seafood specials at the atmospheric, thatched Blue Ball in Sidford (01395 514062), a couple of miles south of the farm, on the other side of Sidbury. Otherwise, you're looking at the 15-minute drive to either the market of Honiton (inland) or Sidmouth (on the coast) for delis, cafes, restaurants, and food shops — try the Pea Green Boat (01395 514152) on the esplanade in Sidmouth for terrific fish and seafood in a relaxed setting. For something a little different, and very cool to boot, The Folly at The Pig (01404 540400) is a hideaway garden cafe-bar serving flatbreads, light meals, and drinks — part of a glam, country-house foodie retreat, around a 15-minute drive to the north at Gittisham.

Peaceful and relaxing

I came for rest and recuperation and that is exactly what I got. Monique and her dog Teddy give you a warm welcome on arrival and the hut has everything you need. Had a few trips out to Beer &Seaton as well as Sidmouth…all enjoyable with plenty of choices for activities, eating and shopping. However, you cannot beat simply sitting enjoying the views from the hut and watching the sun set for the day.

Getting There

From Honiton, take the A375 to Sidmouth and pass the Hare and Hounds pub, before coming down a very long hill for approximately half a mile. Take the first turning on the right, past a large white house (Synderborough House), signposted for Sid Valley Country Hotel and Synderborough Farm. The entrance to the site is 50 yards on the lefthand side, opposite a house. Go through the yard, which leads directly to the paddock and the shepherd's hut. 

There are trains from London Waterloo to Honiton, which is four miles from the site. Buses between Honiton and Sidmouth (connections from Exeter) stop at the entrance of the lane on the A375.
