  • "The cabin is well equipped and clean."

    Views are incredible. We had a few issues with the hot tub, it didn’t smell very pleasant and wasn’t warm on the Saturday night (only reached late 20 degrees). But in fairness we didn’t report it as we were leaving the following morning. The listing says to turn in at New Park but that takes you to the farm house so it’s the Exmoor Retreat turning. I would highly recommend Crealy Adventure Park (30-40 minute drive) for families it was great value and a fab day out. We didn’t do much walking as we have a 1 year old as the entrance is very steep so not ideal for a pram but can imagine there are some lovely walks for people holidaying without young children! All in all it was a lovely weekend break :)

  • "Overall an enjoyable and relaxing stay."

    Previous holidaymakers had left feedback regarding the lack of kitchen utensils and maps/information. It seems that the owner had listened to that feedback and acted. The only disappointment we had was not being able to use the hot tub until the last night of our three night stay due to it continually tripping the electrics. I did call the owner an hour after arriving and she advised an electrician would attend the next day - unfortunately this didn’t happen. It took me having to have a go at fixing the issue myself for us to use the hot tub and only got it up to 28 degrees in time for us to have a dip. Disappointing when we specifically wanted a lodge with a (functioning) hot tub. It would be useful if a few basic cleaning products were provided along with tea/coffee/sugar sachets. Cleanliness, comfort and views can not be faulted though.

  • "We booked on phone specially confirmed about hot tub ."

    It was disappointing as didn’t work wasn’t even informed b4 in hand and it was between the 2 lodge there was no privacy. Never book again . In courtesy was offered 10 % discount. It don’t cover the stress . And infact without we could find cheaper somewhere else

  • "The property was in a great location, walking distance to Bampton and it’s facilities as well as to Exeter Inn in the opposite direction."

    It had a fantastic view across the valley, and the outside area was great with birdsong all day and owls all night. We had a slight issue on arrival but this was quickly resolved by Rebecca, who was very helpful. The property would benefit from better signage at entrance and on emails, as drove into farmhouse first and had to explore a little to find property (turn in by Exmoor retreat sign, not New Park) and the drive up to property is very steep and unmade and would be tricky for some vehicles. Inside, the property was very user friendly with good space and excellent storage. We felt the bed would benefit from a mattress protector, and possibly a topper as you could feel the buttons. We also felt the kitchen was lacking some essential utensils eg only two wine glasses, no potato masher, no scissors, no bread knife and the two sharp knifes that were there were not sharp. There was a good range of saucepans but we had to wash before use as they were not clean from previous visitors (photos if required). We also felt a small area guide and maybe walk books/maps/jigsaws would be a nice touch along with a property welcome guide. Overall, we felt the price was on the high side for the property although it was a lovely location and great outside space. All that being said, we would probably return again if we wanted the same location as we thoroughly enjoyed our stay (we did have fantastic weather!).

The property

Lying in an ideal position within the beautiful open hills of Devon, Valley Lodge is a pretty single-storey property, perfectly suited to a small family or a group of four.

Make yourself feel right at home in this humble abode as you return from an action-packed day exploring the countryside, leaving your mud-splattered boots by the door as you rest and recuperate on the plush sofa that rests peacefully in front of the electric fire.

A few steps away a fully-fitted kitchen can be found joining the open-plan space, home to a plethora of handy electrical appliances needed to cook up a storm.

Gather at the dining table to map out your upcoming adventures, before heading outside to the garden for dinner alfresco at the patio table, embracing the fresh countryside air as you admire your spectacular surroundings.

Back inside, two delightfully decorated bedrooms await you; a spacious double benefitting from an en-suite shower room and a charming twin with use of a light and sophisticated bathroom.

With all this to look forward to and so much more, it is little wonder that Valley Lodge is the ultimate choice for your next escape to Devon.

This property can be booked with Ref: 1069869 together sleeping up to 8 guests.
