    “Relaxing and comfortable holiday lodge - fantastic for dogs”
    This is a very confortable wooden lodge, situated on a farm with plenty of space, particularly good as we have 2 dogs. They loved roaming around and it was great for us to know they were completely safe. The lodge is very comnfortable - a big lounge/kitchen with everything you need (including wifi) plus 3 bedrooms. It's advertised for up to 8 people and you could sleep 8 but that would be a bit cramped in my view - however great for a family of 4 or 5. As we were only 2 - plus 2 dogs - we had ...

It's advertised for up to 8 people and you could sleep 8 but that would be a bit cramped in my view - however great for a family of 4 or 5. As we were only 2 - plus 2 dogs - we had plenty of space! Also because it was at the end of the summer season it was a very reasonable price. A very nice touch were the homemade scones and jam the owners delivered shortly after arrival! It's a mile and half from the local village with 2 pubs - we went in one, the Kings Arms - and that was great for lunch or a couple of beers. All in all we had a great few days here - the only caveat I would make is that as this is central Devon it takes quite a while to drive anywhere - but there is lots wtihin an hour's drive e.g. Plymouth, Westward Ho, Bude, Bideford etc. Highly recommended for a UK short break.
