Will definitely book again. Annie was lovely - so helpful & friendly.❤
"Fantastic stay in a beautiful location."
The owners were very helpful both before and during our stay. Only a short drive to Exmoor National Park and the beach.
"Spectacular views, massive decking, hot tub and viewing windows made this property amazing."
Watching the lambs made it very special over Easter. So peaceful with noone else around. The sunsets and early mist made it magical to photograph.
"Love this place, our third visit and not tired of it yet , just thinking about when we can go again!"
"Valley View was an amazing venue the owners went above and beyond to make sure we had a fabulous time Very thoughtful added extras, spotlessly clean, lovely and warm and Annie kept us fully updated by text both before and after our stay."
"We have all loved our stay at valley view, especially our dog, who laid down in protest and refused to leave."
We stayed during storm Eunice/Franklin so the weather kept us in quite a bit but the place was so comfortable and beautifully maintained that it was a lovely sanctuary to sit and watch the storms. We will definitely return. Thankyou to Peter and Annie for all your help and making our stay the best we could hope for.
"The cottage was fabulous, great views and quiet location."
The hot tub was perfect. Being picky, the only thing that could have been improved was the internet, could have been stronger.
"Perfect place to relax and unwind."
Great facilities. The hot tub was perfect.
"We had a very enjoyable stay in this delightful accommodation."
It was comfortably furnished, cosy and extremely well and thoughtfully equipped with all you need for self catering. We loved the views from the picture window and spotted deer and lots of birds and listening to the owls at night when relaxing in the hot tub was lovely. We stayed mid December and it was a welcome surprise to find the Lodge decorated for Christmas. It is a perfect place to relax in privacy or venture further afield to explore.
"Wow! Where to start with this stunning location."
As some other reviews have said, just bring yourselves, food and drinks, anything else you could ever need is equipped there! From the nice little touches such as dog treats and a ball when you get there, to the stunning outdoor space and amazing utilities in the kitchen. Stunning week away thoroughly enjoyed. Thanks from James, Abby and Willow (cockapoo)
"Valley View was just a beautiful place to stay!"
The views were fantastic, the lodge was clean and comfortable and the owners have thought of everything to make your stay as relaxing as possible. Would highly recommend if your looking for a place to get away from the business of city life!
"Another relaxing week the second time this year very comfortable wonderful views lots of deer & wildlife to see hot tub lovely to sit in and take in the views ."
Annie & Peter were lovely as ever will definitely be coming back again. Sharon & Dennis bristol
"The best hosts."
Best cottage. Already booked for next year!
"Fantastic property in a very quiet location."
Everything you need is there, just bring food and clothes. The hot tub is a welcome relaxation after a long day walking around the many NationalTrust properties that are within easy reach of valley view. The is very little light pollution there, so if you’re up at 4am and it’s a cloudless night the stars are amazing. We would highly recommend this property.
"Amazing place to stay as are all the Sykes places we have stayed in before."
We would love to return but a bit disappointed with the hike in prices for next year! Come on Sykes be reasonable with us. The new price will prohibit us from returning next year.
"We've just returned from a wonderful week at Valley view with our two children and dog."
The lodge was perfect, it was comfortable, clean and very well equipped. There were lots of extra little touches provided by the hosts that made it feel so welcoming. Located in a beautiful, rural setting surrounded by wildlife. We particularly enjoyed watching the deer and listening for the owls at night. Lots of lovely places to explore locally. We'd love to return one day.
"Really super view!"
The accommodation was really fit for purpose. Every utensil and gadget in the kitchen you could need. The beds were comfortable and all the furniture good quality. The hot tub was perfect. We really enjoyed Valley View as a family.
"Lovely & tranquil."
Had everything that was needed and more. Our dog made very welcome. Clean throughout. Beds were uncomfortable and driveway very overgrown.
"The situation of Valley View, is right out in the lovely Devon countryside, so peaceful and just amazing views of rolling country all around it."
Everything you ever need is provided, nothing wanting at all, all so new and clean, and the hot tub was a great bonus too!. Hope to return there again soon.
"Fantastic holiday, we will be returning"
"What a wonderful lodge."
We'll definitely be returning. Beds were comfortable, amazing views, amazing stars as so dark, well equipped kitchen. Jacuzzi was lovely.
"We went back for a second stay so it must have been good the first time."
It was just as perfect the second time.
"Fabulous light-filled cabin with stunning views across the valley during the day, and a night sky with no light pollution to spoil your stargazing from the hot tub!"
We loved being surrounded by sheep and having no human neighbours. The owners are very welcoming, friendly and helpful. All in all, a 5 star stay
"Wonderful accommodation, fully equipped with everything you could need."
Secure fenced area for the dog and amazing views.
"We had a lovely week at valley view the lodge is very comfortable with everything we needed hot tub was just what we needed for a relaxed time watching the wildlife all around."
The views are amazing watching deer in the fields the lambs playing was a delight to watch. We booked for another week later in the year as we enjoyed it so much. Chatted to Annie and Dennis who were at hand if needed.
"This property is absolutely wonderful."
We've stopped at all sorts of places and this is quite simply the best. Location is perfect if you want beautiful views, wildlife included deer and foxes. So quiet and secluded, and the decking and hot tub were brilliant. You're left alone but the hosts are very happy to help in any way they can, including sending me the Jean's I forgot. The cleanest place we've ever stayed in. Everything you need is already there. It was absolutely perfect for what we wanted. And we've already booked again for next year. Can't wait
"This holiday accommodation is in my honest opinion "outstanding."
" The post code is slightly out and its a little further up the lane than the sat nav tells you. As soon as you open the door you know its going to be good. Decor is to a good standard and even though the owners allow dogs there was no trace of dog hairs anywhere and the place smelt really fresh. The furniture is really comfortable and the bed linen and towels are of a very high standard. Slept like a log in the large double bed. Shower was easy to use and pressure was really good. The 8 seater hot tub is just what the doctor ordered for a chill out session. There are no neighbours overlooking you and the only sounds really are the sheep in the fields behind you or the odd hoot from an owl. If you want peace and quiet with no interruptions this is definately the place for you. Had occasion to speak to the owners whilst there. They are a super couple and extremely friendly and helpful. I would highly recommend this accommodation and will definitely be booking another week to relax and chill out here.
"Super location, helpful owners and very clean and new"
"Wow! Valley view you really are like no place I've ever been to before."
The tranquility, the stunning scenery, the beautiful cabin both inside and on the decking area outside. Was the perfect place to come back to after a day of exploring, Annie was fantastic and even organised for us to go and see the sheep which was an amazing bonus. We will 100% be back, we didn't want to ever leave. Thank you Annie, Peter and Denis
"What a beautiful cabin set in a stunning location!"
Everything was just perfect! Exactly what we needed! The cabin was spotless and beautifully laid out. Really enjoyed the hot tub and the tranquility of the area Thanks to Annie and Peter's friendly messages, we knew they were to hand should we need. Since everything was spot on, we didn't ever need to make contact. Thank you!
"Everything was great Owners were on hand if needed Just perfectly"
"Gorgeous lodge in beautiful surroundings."
The huge decking was great for our dogs to play on whilst we relaxed in the hot tub. Although we didn't meet Annie and Peter in person they were always quick to reply to any problems we had. We will definitely return to Valley View and highly recommend it for anyone wanting a tranquil relaxing break.
"Perfect location for peace and quiet with fabulous views including lots of sheep, birds and even deer."
It was much bigger than it seemed in the pictures. There were so many extras at the cottage to make life easier, including weighing scales and baking tins and Tupperware....I gave up baking on holiday years ago because no-one supplied these, but I could have happily done so here. there were instructions for every appliance well organised in a folder. It was extremely clean, everything we needed to know was explained clearly and even the bins and the shed were clean. The towels were so soft and big and luxurious; never had such quality towels in a holiday cottage before. The dog was welcomed with his own kit including treats, a bed and bowls supplied; previous cottages have left lists of rules that have made us feel like Roger was an imposition! The owners were nearby if we needed them but otherwise left us alone to enjoy our holiday; much appreciated.
"The property is amazing, clean I'd recommend booking."
I'll be booking again! The owners and their family were amazing we got lost at 10pm and they helped, we had issues and the owners family came round to help within 15 minutes of ringing. Could not ask for a better holiday!
"Didn't disappoint, quite the opposite, exceeded our expectations."
Everything was catered for. Beautiful location, just what we were looking for. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay, can totally recommended a stay. We already have done to our friends!
"Cottage was very clean and extremely comfortable."
It was equipped with everything you needed to enjoy a relaxing break, with only sheep for company and outstanding views. The owners had provided lots of little extras even down to washing powder. The decking and hot tub was lovely, the inclusion of garden games and draws full of various dvd’s and board games was very thoughtful. If you are looking for a get away from it all break we couldn’t recommend Valley View highly enough.
"Absolutely perfect in every way, fantastic position in the countryside and Valley View home just Wow!"
"Beautiful and scenic venue; the lodge was immaculate & comforting - felt at home very quickly."
The facilities were great! - did not have to use much but still amazing if we wanted to cook in the lodge rather than go site-seeing/going out for food. Less than an hour drive from the shore i.e. visited Lynton/Lynmouth which was lovely. On the evening we drank in the hot tub which was amazing! - the views from the lodge are just so lovely and private. Will definitely be returning :) Thanks for the wonderful stay!
