  • "We had a 3 night stay at Lake View to celebrate 3 family birthdays."

    What an amazing place. From the warm welcome on arrival and including for the dogs to the fabulous accommodation, we couldn't have asked for more. There was ample parking for 3 large cars. The kitchen was very well equipped with lots of nice touches. Pretty Jars of tea, coffee, dog treats etc, bottle of prosecco in the wine cooler and eggs and milk in the huge American style fridge freezer. 2 stairgates and high chair for the baby of the family were gratefully used. We enjoyed using the very large dining room table for buffets and games. Very comfortable sitting area with large flat screen TV with Sky, Netflix etc. Massive super king suite on the ground floor with very useful utility room adjoining with everything needed to launder the dirty dog towels and clothes. A very useful wet room by the front door to shower the dogs. Upstairs, 3 further en suite bedrooms. All the bathrooms were high end and beautiful. The beds were so comfortable and all the accessories and finishing touches were lovely. It felt like we were in a very luxurious, high end hotel. There were even toiletries left for us and ample, soft towels. The hot tub was amazing and got well used. We had a couple of pub lunches and dog walks which were great. I could go on and on singing the praises of this wonderful, rural, idyllic retreat and would highly recommend.

  • "Lake view cottage is wonderful."

    We stayed for Christmas and New Year 21/22 and we were the very first people to stay in the house. Jason and Samantha have spent the last 2 years converting the barn into a rental property and have spared no expense in creating a brilliant home. We've rented lots of rental houses and have our own house in the Luberon but this was one of the most luxuriously furnished houses we've stayed in. They've thought of every last detail from a hot shower to wash the dogs to hotel-like soap and shampoo left for every guest to a really well equipped kitchen... we really couldn't fault it. We were 8 adults (our grown up family, their partners and dogs) and it felt perfect in size even though we were inside as it rained rather a lot! The Jacuzzi is brand new - as is everything else - and monster size. The owners have two dogs and are very dog friendly - with a mass of rugs available to protect any furniture. The house faces fields and feels v private with is own enclosed garden - the owners are in a separate house behind the barn but leave their renters entirely to themselves. In the case of issues, they couldn't be more friendly and helpful. It's a great area between Exmoor and Dartmoor: we went on lovely walks to both and the sea is about an hour away. We played golf on two fun courses. I would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Lake View; it really is a great house
