  • "We had great time at lodge 39."

    But few things did worry us. The decking was unsafe in few places. Which did cause us the be very careful. But saying that we did have lovely stay.

  • "The information given to access the lodge was incorrect."

    There is only one key safe, not 2, and neither of the codes worked! We had to get the set of keys from reception, who were very helpful. The property is in need of some TLC, some of the windows and kitchen door to do not seal property leaving gaps, luckily the weather was relatively warm so did not make the lodge cold. The outside area is also in need of attention, the decking was very creaky when walked on and the outside furniture needs replacing, a couple of the ballastrades were also loose. This aside the lodge is a good size, it was clean and the whirlpool bath is definitely a bonus. The first night we ate at the restaurant on site and the food was really good. It was the perfect location to visit Combe Martin, Ilfracombe and Woolacombe. The lodge is at the top of the park and there are some up hills to get there so may not be suitable for some that have mobility difficulties. When we left on Sunday morning from about 5am there was no electricity? We locked the lodge up about 8.30am and there was still no electricity, and assumed it was the whole park but when we dropped the keys back to reception there was no one to ask so we just put them through the letter box! So not sure what the problem was! But overall we had a nice relaxing break with the dog :)

  • "Really enjoyed our stay, there were 4 adults and 2 children in our party and we found the lodge was the perfect size."

    Yes it’s looking a little tired but is clean and has everything you could possibly need. perfect for families as you are literally overlooking Watermouth castle, and there are lovely woodland walks in all directions including the gorgeous harbour just over the road. Any noise from the castle was minimal and didn’t bother us at all. The only thing I would point out is that the lodge is right at the top of a hill, no problem at all for us as we love walking but would not suit less able people who want to be able to explore around the lodge. This lodge was in the perfect place for exploring North Devon and we would love to come back. Thanks

    Thank you for your positive feedback. We aim to totally refurbish the lodge next year as recognise that it needs some updating. Dani & Rob. Property Owner

  • "We enjoyed a good break in lodge 39."

    .......however read on for some warnings! It was an inauspicious start. We turned up at the 3pm, as designated in pre-holiday emails, only to find out we couldn't get in until 5pm due to 'cleaning in progress'. Much like the rest of us the Lodge is a little tired and worn around the edges, especially the sofa/armchairs which are improbably spongy (bed is similarly marshmallow soft). Elements were definitely 'Jack built', gaps around a couple of window frames and a draining board that slopes away from the kitchen sink! Nevertheless the bathrooms/boiler etc had clearly been fairly recently refurbished. Cleaning may have been rushed due to our 'early' arrival but was certainly selective. Also just four dishwasher tablets and no replacement 'bin-bags' for the week seemed somewhat mean. For three/four adults there is easily enough space but for six people (plus a dog) it would be horribly cramped........there are only two armchairs and a two-seater sofa (for six!) and the dining table/chairs are pinned against a wall. The balcony was fine if a bit rickety, plenty of chairs even if the outdoor table hadn't been cleaned for a very, very long time. There may have been 'sea views' twenty years ago but now it consists of trees/shrubs etc. Occasional unpleasant drain smells when sitting out were a real shame. What is certainly NOT mentioned in the 'bumph'/marketing is the proximity and noise from the adjacent theme park. Inane music can start from 08:15 and may drive sensitive souls mad by the end of a week. We thankfully just laughed it off. Lodge 39 is at the top of the park and a reasonable climb even from the bar/restaurant/reception, no problem for us but if you have mobility issues it might be. We didn't use the facilities (bar/rest/pool) so can't comment on these. Now to the positives.....the 'Indian summer' weather certainly helped but most of all we just loved strolling down to the picturesque bay, which dries out almost completely at low tide. There is a huge lawn stretching down from the castle battlements offering panoramic views out to sea, just lovely. The park is also adjacent to the SW coastal path which can be followed in each direction to Coombe Martin or Ilfracombe (via Hele.......pronounced Hell!). Woolacombe Bay is less than 30 min drive away, with sand and sea as far as the eye can see and dogs allowed on the majority of it all year round. So in summary we had a lovely relaxing holiday in Lodge 39.....despite!

  • "The cabin was not that clean on arrival, the lounge furniture was very low and not suitable for elderly, the decking was not safe, the hand rail was broken and some of the slats you walk on where broken, not suitable for elderly so couldn’t sit outside although the weather was good."

  • "This is a very good clean lodge with lots of appliances and its spacious."

    On the downside there is no view from the rear veranda due to the tall trees but the squirrels and rabbits will entertainment you if you throw a few titbits to them. Are main concern was that lodge was situated high on the side of a hill and the site is not suitable for people with mobility problems.

  • "Lovely little park, soft play , park and pool brilliant for our toddlers."

    staff very friendly. lodge well equipped and clean. communication and check in/out very easy and efficient. lodge a bit damp, possibly cos its been underused due to the pandemic but the floor felt quite "bouncy " in places, our clothes all smell musty and my little one got quite wheezy.

  • "Good experience generally was very impressed with how well the cabin was equipped even supplying washing up liquid, dishwasher tablets etc."

    Outside seating area was a little grubby and the plot outside a little unkempt could have been better but didn't spoil our break. Cabin advertised has having Wi-Fi but this was intermittent. All in all we thought good value for money.
