  • "Beautiful quiet location."

    Great exercise area down to the pool for your doggy friend. Track to lodge quite narrow so some care needed but worth it. Lovely swimming pool right next door. Lodge equipped with everything you could possibly need. Could not fault Bearscombe View.

  • "Really enjoyed our stay at Bearscombe, the cabin was set in beautiful surroundings and was warm and well kitted out with everything you would need."

    We were left with salt and pepper, 2 pints of milk, tea, coffee and sugar and a bottle of fizz. We have already recommended it to friends and will definitely be returning.

  • "We had a lovely stay at Bearscombe View."

    Everything that was needed was there. The location was perfect and the only sounds were the sounds of nature. We loved the peace and tranquillity and have come home fully relaxed and refreshed. Thank you

  • "A lovely property off a quiet lane, in the middle of trees & relaxing scenery."

    Slept well - heard nothing except the usual pigeons in the morning! Everything we needed and very clean. You have to drive 15+ minutes to get anywhere although Ring Feeder farm shop/café was very near & well worth a visit. The very narrow lane up to the main road was about a mile but we never met anyone! Enjoyed Greenway, Agatha Christie's house, & took the 5 minutes ferry from Dittisham to get there as parking is limited at the house. Went to Kingsbridge several times & the coast - beautiful cliff walks.

  • "We have just spent a fantastic week at Bearscombe view with our dog Monty and we could not of asked anything better."

    The hosts were more than helpful and we would not think twice of booking this beautiful cabin again.

  • "Lovely accommodation in a lovely location."

    The lodge was very clean and spacious with additional perks such as Sky TV and some milk and a bottle of Prosecco left for us in the fridge. The gardens were perfect for our dog to run around in and for watching the sun set over the fields, very relaxing and peaceful. Good location for visiting places nearby such as Noss Mayo and Bigbury-on-Sea. We also visited the California Inn pub and the Ringfeeder farm shop and cafe, both of which were lovely and very close by. The narrow lanes were a bit of a challenge to drive along, but being from Somerset, we are used to lane driving so not a problem for us. Would definitely recommend this as a place to stay, both to relax in the lovely surroundings or as a base for exploring more of Devon.

  • "Calm, peaceful location."

    Cosy for two. Well-equipped, though a dishwasher would be useful. The very narrow lanes are stressful for driving.

    Thank you for your feedback. We will look at the possibility of installing a dishwasher. Property Owner

  • "Really lovely lodge and very well situated in a peaceful location."

    Well equipped and spacious for 2 adults and a 10 year old. Nice touch with the prosecco, milk and biscuits! The only slight issue was that we found the matresses a bit hard, but appreciate everyone's different.

  • "We had a fantastic relaxing week in the lodge."

    Peace and quiet at its finest, plenty to do in surrounding area. The lodge is well equipped and very comfortable. The owners are very friendly and helpful, highly recommended. P/S We would have been very interested in a folder with photos of the construction of the lodge if you have any. Many thanks Linda and Rob

The property

Idyllically positioned in a peaceful valley, on the outskirts of the village of Modbury, rests this quaint timber lodge, Bearscombe View. Set across one level and enjoying a private sunny courtyard and easy access to both the coast and country of Devon, Bearscombe View offers an excellent base for a romantic retreat for two. A handy off-road parking space greets you at the foot of this lovely dwelling, making unloading your belongings and settling into your new home-from-home an easy task. Refresh yourself in the large indoor heated swimming pool that is available for use between 11am and 5pm.

Towels for the pool will not be provided.

Shared on a rota basis with our other holiday let at a small optional supplementary charge. Kick off your shoes and take in your rural setting as you unwind with a steaming cup of coffee and a leisurely seat on the terrace. Stepping inside, be charmed by the rustic, timber interior of this wonderful Devon holiday home, where you can look forward to rustling up a romantic meal for two in the well-equipped kitchen, or putting your feet up as your favourite show plays on the Smart TV. Meal times can be enjoyed at the dining table or in the peaceful setting of your private courtyard, where you can soak in the last of the evening sunshine with a glass of fizz in hand. The timber interior continues throughout the property and into the bathroom, equipped with both a bath and a handheld shower, so you can choose best how to prepare for bed following a day of adventure. When sleep calls, catch your rest in one of two well-presented bedrooms, with a single offering an intimate escape from the excitement whilst the double provides the idyllic sleeping arrangements for a couple. Lace up your walking boots and get better acquainted with your surroundings, where the nearby fields stretch across the valley toward the glistening waters of a river and a handful of ponds, providing a truly tranquil spot to take your four-legged friends for a walk or simply escape the hustle and bustle of everyday life. You'll find all of your local amenities in the heart of Modbury, with its high-street brimming with shopping opportunities, pubs and delicious takeaways, or you can stock up on essentials at the local Co-op. Avid outdoor adventurers will delight with your close proximity to Dartmoor National Park, where scenic walking, cycling and hiking opportunities can be found in abundance, whilst the South Devon coastline offers the best of both worlds, with beaches, coast and surf. Learn about and explore the vineyards and orchards on one of the tours on offer at the Calancombe Estate Vienyard which is just a short walk away from the property. Spend a peaceful afternoon lounging on the golden sands of Bigbury-on-Sea, or marvel at the towering cliffs at Ayrmer Cove. Make memories that will last a lifetime with a retreat to Bearscombe View. However, we always ask all visitors to please remember to drive slowly and carefully on the narrow lanes leading to the property. Note: This property can be booked with Ref: 973373, together sleeping up to 7 people.

This will also allow private use of the swimming pool.
