Mazzard Farm is situated on East Hill, exactly 1 mile south east of Ottery St Mary.
It’s a new venue for a holiday in East Devon, opening late in 2007 and I have to say that it’s well worth a visit.
You can choose from five different cottages, ranging in size from a cosy one-bedroom retreat to a family size house. You’ll love the surroundings, woodlands, fields, gardens, an orchard, a childrens' play area and a cobbled courtyard. Enjoy the peace and tranquility of the country along with foxes, badgers, deer, birds and other animals. The children will absolutely love it.
Ideally situated for a relaxing holiday or a short break, you will enjoy the personal touch from Jacqueline, Ruud and their family. The properties are high quality barn conversions that were the culmination of a two-year search for the perfect place.
Ruud says: “We put a lot of emphasis on personal service, from the way we welcome our guests, the format in which we provide local information, services on offer etc. In addition, we hope to encourage our guests to make optimal use of local products and services. There will also be a strong emphasis on young families, and the services they require. In off-season we may organise themed breaks, i.e. around the arts, etc.”
Mazzard Farm is very environmentally conscious, an important benefit in today’s wasteful world. All the heating and hot water for the farm is generated through a Biomass Heating Boiler; in addition, the heat is carefully conserved by good insulation. This allows you to reduce your carbon footprint while you’re on holiday.
Not only that, you will love the local foods that are on offer. There’s a huge selection and because it hasn’t had to travel miles it’s beautifully fresh and much tastier than food that has been processed and traveled a long distance.
Ottery St Mary is a short distance away and you will find an abundance of shops selling local produce and environmentally friendly goods. It's an easy walk to Ottery in about 15 or 20 minutes.
If you want to stay for more than a week then you can have a discount for the cost of the second week. For families with small children you will find plenty to do without having to travel a long way, there are two playgrounds adjoining the cottages where your little ones can play safely.
