Thank you so much Julie / lodge is amazing ❤️ Jackie & Family XX Reviewed by JackieMay 2022 "Beautiful lodge in lovely setting." Coast and places of interest within an hour drive time. Lovely pubs short drive. Nice little extras milk cake and juice etc. Thank you Julie. Reviewed by AngelaApr 2022 "This was our second visit to Lodge 9 and we were not disappointed." It was impeccably clean and comfortable, with every need catered for. It was the perfect place to relax and unwind. The site itself is small and quiet and an ideal base for exploring both Devon and Cornwall. We had another enjoyable holiday here and would highly recommend Lodge 9. Reviewed by RachelApr 2022 "Comfortable and spacious accommodation, in a peaceful and quiet countryside location with views across Dartmoor, a great getaway destination for a relaxing break." The beds are very comfortable, more than adequate wardrobe, shelving and drawer space in each bedroom. Bathrooms are of a good size with excellent shower units. The lounge is very comfortable, plenty of room to spread out and on fine days both sets of patio doors can be opened for some welcome fresh air, as well as several other windows. A Smart TV with access to Netflix gives ample scope for entertainment in the evening or on inclement days. The veranda has seating, a table for which a parasol is available; pots of flowers make a nice colourful display. Kitchen is very well equipped utensil wise, with a gas hob and electric fan oven. A full size fridge/freezer, especially useful if planning on self catering for the week. Milk, cake and apple juice we discovered for our use on arrival, which was most welcome after our journey. Should you have the need there is a utility room with washing machine, tumble dryer and ironing board. Eating out we enjoyed evening meals at Mary Tavy and Peter Tavy Inns and lunch times and breakfasts at Strawberry Fields Cafe in village of Litton where there is also an excellent farm shop selling quality produce. There are plenty of other places to eat in Tavistock, we especially liked Church Lane Cafe which has some outside seating where one can sit and watch the world go by whilst sipping a frothy latte. If you like jigsaws, then do visit Owens in Tavistock, a shop solely devoted to this past time. We will be returning to Lodge 9 (Tamar) again this coming autumn. My wife and I heartily recommend this holiday accommodation. Reviewed by PaulMar 2022 "Absolutely fab lodge." Real home from home. We didn't want for anything. Even greeted with cake milk & apple juice extremely clean & well maintained throughout Only smal quiet site which is what we wanted close proximity to Tavistock. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend & looking forward to a return vsit with friends at some time Reviewed by JoSep 2021 "Fantastically equipped lodge, lots of space and nice views." All spotlessly clean, and a very comfortable bed. Reviewed by GeraldJun 2021 "The lodge was amazing." It was above and beyond what we were expecting Reviewed by DerekMay 2021 "Lodge 9 is absolutely lovely." The owner has thought of everything. Good quality china, nice bed linen and towels, sofas are comfortable as are the beds. Plenty of storage too and well equipped modern bathroom and en-suite shower room. It was an absolute pleasure to stay there and we were very sorry to leave. It s in a rural setting with just 11 lodges in total, its quiet and has great views and lovely countryside all around. Only a 2 mile drive into Tavistock which is a great town. So nice we have decided to move there! Reviewed by LindaApr 2021 "Great place to stay would recommend this location to friends and colleagues" Reviewed by ChristopherOct 2020 "The lodge was beautiful, well positioned in a lovely quiet spot out in the countryside, and very well equipped with lots of thoughtful touches." The lodges were slightly closer together than we expected, which partially interrupted the gorgeous view. Overall we had a very enjoyable and comfortable stay - please thank the owner for all the thoughtful additions in the lodge. Reviewed by ChristopherAug 2020 "Everything about the Lodge was first class and everything you could want for a comfortable and relaxing holiday was there - even during these unusual COVID-19 circumstances." Excellent. Reviewed by JohnJul 2020 "Really enjoyable and would come back" Reviewed by CallumFeb 2020 "What a fantastic lodge!" the interior was excellent, spacious, warm, well laid out, the lounge kitchen dinning area was large with superb views over Dartmoor moor. The 2 bedrooms were good each with its own bathroom the double was on-suite. The kitchen was well equipped with every thing you could wish for only missing a bread bin! In all an excellent accommodation. Reviewed by MichaelSep 2019 "Well, being in Devon is just so wonderful, as anyone who has visited will tell you." So I want to concentrate on the accommodation. Never have I had a more comfortable place to stay before! We've stayed at lovely places but, in my opinion, this was the best. The owner of this lodge left "no stone unturned", so to speak. Everything we needed was provided, tea, coffee, sugar etc & plenty of everyday items such as cleaning materials, refuse sacks, toilet paper etc. Extras of these were not provided in other properties & these are things that you could easily forget to buy. The lodge was squeaky clean too which is always a bonus. On the Sunday of our stay, I loved watching so many tractors going along the lane behind the lodges. I think there was a tractor rally or something going on in the area. All in all, it was fantastic. Reviewed by RodneySep 2019 "Great lodge very well kept and presented very thoughtful owner." Wouldn’t hesitate to recommend...Plymouth 19 miles away, Bude about 40, miniature ponies about 22 miles, Tavistock approx 3.5 miles...

The property was presented in an excellent condition with all the facilities that we needed and was perfectly placed to enable easy access to many parts of Devon and Cornwall Reviewed by RichardJul 2019 "Lodge is better suited to a family rather than 4 adults we would have booked something else if we had realised." We were told it would be fine for 4 adults but 2 bedroom was too small. Reviewed by JanetJul 2019 "Fantastic Lodge 5 Star plus good location will go again" Reviewed by RonaldJun 2019 "The lodge was as described and very comfortable." The level of equipment was excellent as some holiday properties never have enough plates,glasses or saucepans and owners presume you will always go out to eat. On arrival there was an issue with no hot water but the central heating was working correctly. The boiler had a large note on it tell guests not to touch the controls, so I rang the owner who was on holiday in Wales. She contacted the Gas Board and rang me back saying that they could attend on Monday but that would mean me staying in the property and if this was to happen I would get a refund of some kind. As this was Saturday afternoon I was not prepared to wait till Monday with no hot water so I ignored the do not touch sign and reprogrammed the boiler with the desired effect to correct the problem. However, someone without that knowledge may had been in trouble as I explained to the owner when I rang her back to cancel the gas board. As expected she was grateful and relieved that I had sorted out the problem. The other minor issue was the TV signal that previous occupants had mentioned and the owners had fitted a signal booster, but there were two or three times during the week that we had to turn off and reboot the booster in order to get the TV to work. These two minor matters did not spoil our break in a wonderful part of the country that we know well, together with a week of glorious weather. Reviewed by TomMar 2019 "Lodge really comfortable and everything thought of to make stay as good as possible." Thank you Reviewed by HelenJan 2019 "This is a beautiful place especially with two bathrooms and very comfortable beds." I have marked low on comfort not for the furnishings which were excellent but due to the gas boiler not working for two plus one days. One other point, the carpet is lovely but the light colour shows up every mark makes one uneasy to even walk on it. Although, we had our slippers,to change at the front door. I would not stay here with young children unless the carpet was changed. The TV picture goes off quite regularly. Thank you for your feedback. Yes, it must be every owners nightmare that a heating boiler unexpectedly breaks down and inconveniences guests. Fortunately, many owners like myself will have a comprehensive home-care insurance policy so emergency gas boiler call outs can be speedily activated. Also, many owners like me will have thought ahead to cover all eventualities and provided sufficient electric heaters that guests need never be cold. Following your feedback, I have stayed at the property myself for the last 10 days and found everything to be working perfectly. The pale carpet is robust and there has not been a problem reported by families. Property Owner Reviewed by MervynDec 2018 "We thoroughly enjoyed the lodge." We appreciated all the thoughtful touches eg the visitors book with recommendations for local eateries and places to visit. The owner provided local milk, apple juice and biscuits for our arrival which was very welcome. Bedside torches were useful for visits to the loo in the night. The weather was mixed but there is so much to see and do in the local area to keep us entertained whatever the weather. A week just was n't long enough. The only thing lacking in the lodge was a tumble drier but we took our washing home. Reviewed by GillianDec 2018 "May I suggest the kettle and toaster be relocated as they are damaging the cupboards above." The chalet was absolutely fabulous so comfortable and peaceful.
