    • “Fantastic Lodge, beautiful area”

    • “The Lodge itself is very spacious, well equipped and beautifully laid out. The location, just outside the town of Bishop's Nympton, is a lovely area with beautiful scenery. The view from the back garden is outstanding. Myself, my husband, our 2 small dogs and my parents all stayed in the Lodge very comfortably. Plenty of room for us all and plenty of wardrobe space, kitchen equipment and towels. The dogs loved having such a spacious garden to run around in and we loved the fact it was secure and we could keep an eye on them through the panoramic windows/doors without having to be outside with them the whole time. The owners were very welcoming and were available by phone at any time should we have needed them. The farm dogs were very friendly and enjoyed a good play/fuss every now and then. The Cream Tea and pint of milk that was left in the fridge to greet us upon our arrival was a very welcomed extra. Would absolutely recommend this Lodge and the area, just be prepared for tight twisty country lanes and lots of large spiders!!!”

    • “Perfect....no other way to describe it. We stayed at the lodge for Easter, Two teenagers, two 9yr old's and one dog and (4 surrogate dogs from the farm, i would have stolen Bert if i had the chance!!). The lodge was more that we expected, very spacious, very well equipped and very clean. The kids (especially 9yr old's) loved the farm, all the animals, tractor rides and covered in every kind of (muck) you can imagine. Karen and Bill are lovely, very helpful without being intrusive. Truth be known i think two of ours would have moved in if they could. A car is a must in order to get anywhere, but this does not detract from the lodge or surroundings,(WiFi for the teens saved all a little sanity, they even managed fresh air and walking!! OMG). Devon at it's best”

    • “We have just returned from a break at Elworthy Lodge. There were 3 of us and our 3 dogs. The lodge is situated across and actual farm yard and has its own secured garden and driveway. Karen soon put mesh across the bottom to stop our tiny dog escaping. The owners have 4 friendly dogs. The lodge is very clean and bright with all mod cons. There are plenty of crockery, cutlery, pots and pans. The beds are comfy and there is a tv on the wall in the master bedroom. There are 2 bathrooms and use of a secure dog run with dry kennel. On arrival there was a lovely cream tea in the fridge along with a pint of milk. we will definitely be going there again and have already recommended the lodge to family. Just a note the view of the countryside out of the front of the lodge is fantastic.”

    • “Amazing attention to detail”
    • tripadvisor rating
    • “There is always the question, will the property be as good as the pictures? I can confirm it is better than the pictures. The set up of the property was excellent for the two of us and two dogs. There is more than enough room for 6 people, but for ourselves and the dogs, it was ideal. The property has an enclosed garden, a kennel area where the dogs can dry out and chill in their kennel if you want a day out. The attention to detail is excellent, no fault could be found. We were so impressed, we have booked again for next year and hopefully enjoy the patio space which looks out to an amazing view. Karen and Bill make excellent hosts and are available to assist or answer any questions you may have, and the complimentary scones on arrival were much appreciated. Good central spot to a beautiful location. I have already suggested this to friends and family.”

    • “A big thank you to Karen and Bill for a really relaxing and comfortable week.This Lodge is one of the best we have stayed in over many years, it is immaculate, well equipped and unbelievably spacious. Although only myself and wife stayed it would not be overcrowded with 6 adults. After a warm welcome on the Saturday they remained unintrusive but available should we have required anything.No detail has been overlooked in the lodge and it was a pleasure to stay here and visit areas of north Devon we have previously overlooked. I highly recommend this property for both couples and families[ Kids would love the farm animals and also the adventure of staying on a working farm]. By the way Karen , thanks for the Devon Cream Tea waiting for us in the fridge, a very nice touch.”

    • “The Lodge is a recent build so everything is new and works! The Lodge is situated on a working farm in a quite peaceful location, but is still within easy reach of the road network. We found the location ideal for visiting North Devon and Exmoor. The Lodge is great for dog owners having an enclosed garden and even a kennel run. The owners are very friendly and made sure we were settled in, they have the softest dog we have ever met!”

    Mrs Hackett, Selsdon, October 2015

    • “This was our second visit to Elworthy Lodge and we enjoyed another good week. The Lodge has an excellent outlook and although it is situated on a working farm, you hardly notice the noise. The owners are most accommodating and nothing is too much trouble for them. We would definitely recommend Elworthy Lodge if you are looking for a quiet and peaceful holiday.”

    Mr Hill, Camelford, October 2015

    Mrs Fairbairn, London, July 2015

    • “Everything was brilliant; the Lodge and the owners. The Lodge was an excellent standard and had everything we required to make it a fantastic holiday. I have come home and booked again for the same time next year.”

    Mrs Dryden, Barnsley, June 2015

    • “The lodge was light, airy and spacious with beautiful views to admire from the comfort of the sofas. The owners were friendly and very welcoming. We found them to be on hand if needed but in no way intrusive on our privacy. The facilities were excellent; everything has been thought of and for those who want, a good WiFi connection which we found smooth and speedy. Elsworthy Farm was the perfect base for exploring the North Devon and Somerset areas and we will definitely return.”

    Mrs Harvey, Clacton-on-Sea, May 2015

    • “We are so glad we are going back in October for a week. The Lodge was superb, everything was so nice and comfortable. We were only there for a short break and we were sad to leave, can't wait to return. The view is so lovely and the owners were so friendly. Will be recommending Elworthy Lodge to our friends.”

    Mr Hill, Camelford, March 2015

    • “The cottage is perfectly located for visiting the north coast of Devon and all its wonderful towns and beaches, as well as Exmoor itself. The owners are friendly and helpful. The cottage is on a farm and you are encouraged to look around at the animals; lovely for children. The garden is fully enclosed for both dog and child safety which allows everyone to relax. There was plenty of parking. The lodge is well furnished, very comfortable and the view from the windows in the lounge is a real treat. So quiet it rejuvenates.”
