Locks Farm is a beautifully presented and spacious traditional farmhouse tucked away in the heart of the popular coastal village of East Prawle. Tastefully refurbished with flagstone floors and wooden beams it’s perfect for family gatherings, whether they involve winter walks along the coastal path and cosy nights in by the log burner or lazy summer days exploring and eating alfresco in the garden after a day on the beach. There’s an impressive kitchen diner, a generous sitting room with a log burner, a cosy snug room, a utility and wet room and games room in the garage. Upstairs the master bedroom and double room boast views out over the village to the sea and two further bedrooms complete this exceptional property.

Some fans would be a nice idea because when we were there it was very warm, particulary at night.
This is a great property - ideal location, has everything (and more) that you need and it's kept beautifully. Ultra-comfy beds too. Absolutely loved it.
Thank you for a lovely time in your beautiful home. It has been excellent for our family! We visit the area a lot and would not hesitate to return to Locks Farm!
One week stay-it's all amazing! Countryside walks, villages, pubs, all great! Must to do 1. Pig's Nose 2. The Millbrook Inn. Will be back!
We did enjoy our stay. The cottage was very clean on arrival and the cleaners were very helpful when we started our second week, with clean bedding etc. We personally found East Prawle quite disappointing. We stayed in November when the shop and cafe were closed. The only thing there was the pub (which we did love).
We had a wonderful time - it was well priced and perfect for an extended family holiday. Would happily rent it again.
all above excellent -
We were lucky with the weather and we have a superb holiday at Locks Farm in East Prawle. We are already looking at possible Toad Hall Cottage for 2019
We had a wonderful time at Locks Farm , everything was spot on , couldn’t fault anything . Would definitely recommend.
Had a great time, the only reason the location didn't get an excellent rating is the time it took to go anywhere due to the very narrow roads - an hour and 10 mins to cover 15 miles on one occasion but I guess that is South Devon for you!
We had a fabulous week at Lock's Farm. The property is really fantastic - extremely comfortable and superbly equipped. It was a truly wonderful break and couldn't recommend this property highly enough!
We had a wonderful week at Locks Farm. It was perfect and a fantastic house for a group and dogs!
Thank you for allowing us to stay at Locks Farm we celebrated 3 birthdays between 7 of us and it's the perfect place to do this. Fell in love with the aga, amazing walks, our four legged friends are exhausted. We felt at home as soon as we walked in the door.
Fabulous stay and beautifully decorated for Christmas which was a surprise. This is an exceptional property and we would highly recommend it. The Pigs Nose Inn was an added bonus and we found it extremely friendly with excellent beer and food. We would also like to commend Toad Hall Cottages staff for their excellent service and quick response to queries we had prior to our stay. We would certainly book with Toad Hall again.
We have had a wonderful week in this comfortable and well appointed house. Great location, wonderful walks in the area.
We have had a fantastic week enjoying all the South Coast has to offer here in East Prawle. Locks Farm has offered us a very relaxing retreat where we can enjoy all the wonderful facilities this house has to offer, in particular the table tennis table.
Warm and comfortable and well equipped home. I took a photo of the Villeroy and Boch range! It's a beautiful design. We loved the lanes and verdant hedges with loads of wildlife. One request is a non slip mat for the oldies in the shower upstairs. Thank you for trusting us with your lovely home.
Thank you for your lovely feedback. There is now non-slip bath mats for all the bathrooms. We hope to see you again soon.

Amazing holiday, Devon is heaven. Thank you for sharing your gorgeous house and your lovely neighbours. Great fun exploring coves, local ales and retreating from a life of phone reception and connectivity. I hope we can come again!
