  • "Nickie and Malcom have a wonderful property."

    It was absolutely stunning!! We loved our stay and would wholeheartedly recommend a stay in Sandsgate lodge to anyone. The features and fixtures are beautiful and immaculate, the view speaks for itself and the array of things to do and places to eat in the area are ideal. We cannot wait for our next stay. You always get nervous booking online that the pictures are not going to be what they look like on the website... these photos do not do the property justice. What a place! Honeymoon October 2023.

    Thank you for your kind words, and we were really honoured to host you for your honeymoon! I am so pleased you had a wonderful stay. Property Owner

  • "An absolutely stunning property with views you can never tire of!"

    The property is so well appointed and has everything you could ever think you’d need during your stay. Whilst feeling so calm and secluded you’re within a few minutes of main road links. Am ideal retreat to explore both Devon and Cornwall.

  • "What a beautiful property and location."

    Absolutely stunning. Thoroughly enjoyed our week at Sandsgate Lodge. Spent our days visiting local attractions and was a joy to return to such a comfortable home from home. One downside was the lack of enclosed dog walking area meaning I was up and out 6am every morning. We looked to book again in August, but it's out of our price range which is a shame.

    I am very pleased to hear you had a good time and thank you for your feedback about the fence. We may well try and make this dog proof -a good point . Thank you. I do hope we can welcome you back sometime soon. Property Owner
