  • "Above and beyond stay here, owner Ruth has thought of everything, beautiful cottage, fully equipped with all you need, I needn't have packed as I usually do, Ruth has provided it all."

    Additional pluses are the pool table and hot tub, a great addition which were well used and enjoyed. A proper chocolate box cottage...just stunning. A very comfortable stay for our family.

    I am really glad that you enjoyed your stay so much despite the weather being pretty wet at times but as you say the hot tub and games room help. Property Owner

  • "We would like to thank Ruth and her family for our stay."

    The children loved their Christmas stockings, such a lovely thought. The cottage is amazing. Loved the experience of using the Aga! We had a great Christmas, a few great walks with our granddaughter. The birds in the hedges were amazing and the owl! (I think in the stables). Everything we needed was provided. The only advice I would give is to get an additional shower head on the bath. As a family of 7 we did struggle a bit with the bathroom.

    Thank you for such nice feedback and glad you had a nice Christmas break. Will talk to the plumber about an extra shower head. Property Owner

  • "The cottage was perfect."

    Well maintained and fitted out with care and attention to all details. Log burner with logs. Especially nice was the Christmas tree and decorations which made our stay more special. Beautiful chocolates and welcome pack left for us. As wet and muddy games room and hot tub were great. Thanks

    I am glad you enjoyed your stay even though the weather was not great. Property Owner

  • "Such a beautiful cottage, very warm and cosy."

    The attention to detail is something to mention. Milk, tea, coffee, freshly homemade scones. Just to name a few. Massive enclosed garden for the dogs to play around in. The hottub was a lovely addition, with freshly washed robes and slippers for each guest. Podsbury cottage is a property I will definitely recommend and will be booking again. Thank you so much to the owner, she has a stunning place.

    Thank you for this lovely review. We would be very happy to welcome you again in the future. Property Owner

  • "The cottage is amazing,looks beautiful from the outside but even better within."

    Everything you could need is covered. The Aga is a bit of a challenge but once you worked out how to switch food around was ok. Amazing spacious rooms, lovely comfortable beds. Spotlessly clean throughout.Very quiet location. The garden is fully enclosed so your dogs can just run free while you sit in the hot tub watching them and there's also a large field next to the garden to use as well that is brilliant if you have dogs that will run all-day. Roads to the property are a bit narrow but with care easy to navigate.

    Thank you for this lovely feedback and so glad you enjoyed it despite the wet weather. Property Owner

  • "We had a wonderful stay at Posbury Lodge."

    It was well equipped with everything we needed for a comfortable and relaxing stay. The hot tub was a great touch as we all enjoyed spending time in there. The host was lovely, great email communication throughout. The children (three girls 4, 6 and 7) really enjoyed the books, in the bedrooms and having the option of watching one of many dvds whilst it was raining. Our little dog Max had a lovely stay, the enclosed garden is a great size. Overall, we couldn’t fault it. We will definitely be back.

    It is so nice to hear that you all enjoyed staying at Posbury Lodge so much. We look forward to welcoming you back again. Property Owner

  • "Amazing property, with a beautiful garden and hot tub."

    Wi-fi and mobile phone coverage too unstable to ‘work from home’ or access the internet, but that’s understandable due to countryside location.

    Fortunately BT have now brought Fibre broadband to the village and it will be installed at Posbury Lodge next week (25.04.23). Going forward internet access should be reliable & download speeds good. Property Owner

  • "Posbury Lodge is a delightful property."

    Both inside and out everything has been thoughtfully considered by Ruth the owner who lives nearby and is very welcoming. We were greeted with a delightful provision of homemade scones, cream and jam, teabags , freshly ground coffee and the most amazing homemade chocolate eggs . As dog owners the garden was a joy as the fencing was completely secure and a really much appreciated touch was the outside Butler sink with hose to wash off the muddy paws . In the garden are well marked store cupboards for logs to purchase with an honesty box and another for the recycling and composting bins. The other lovely feature is a great games room accompanied with a hot tub on a terrace , although we did not use either in our stay , these would no doubt be a great bonus to guests relaxation. The inside layout of the cottage flows well with a lovely large double bedroom and single bedroom downstairs and upstairs an attractive double and twin rooms. There is a public footpath nearby for dog walking from the property. We very much enjoyed our stay here and explorations around the Devon countryside despite the week of rain .

    Thank you for taking the time to review your stay at Posbury Lodge & I am so pleased you & your dogs enjoyed it. We are in a good location for exploring the various delights Devon has to offer and there are options if the weather is not perfect. Property Owner

The property

Crediton 2.9 miles.

Settled in the Devon countryside on the outskirts of Dartmoor National Park, near Crediton is Posbury Lodge.

This idyllic, dog-friendly thatched cottage benefits from a fantastic rural location, off-road parking for three cars, an enclosed garden with hot tub and furniture and four well-appointed bedrooms: perfect for families, friends or couples looking to explore the wonders of Devon.

Cross the threshold and head straight into the sitting room where you can warm your feet by the crackling woodburning stove after a day full of exploration before heading to the fully-equipped kitchen to rustle up hearty meals for the whole family which you can enjoy around the dining table or alfresco, outside on the patio.

Later enjoy a soothing soak in the bubbling hot tub as the stars begin to fill the sky before venturing into the ground-floor bathroom to wash off the day’s adventures.

When sleep calls, choose from four thoughtfully presented bedrooms to catch up on your rest, there is a king-size and single completing the ground-floor and a double and twin completing the second.

If you can tear yourself away from this tranquil dwelling head into the nearby market town of Crediton where you can stock up on essentials at the local supermarkets before enjoying a much-needed break from the kitchen at pubs including The Three Little Pigs or The Red Deer.

The surrounding countryside has history woven throughout; tour the National Trust sites of Killerton, an elegant house with manicured gardens, Clyston Mill, a working Victorian flour mill overlooking the river or the Tiverton Museum of Mid Devon Life.

Exeter lies nearby and houses a myriad of attractions including Northernhay Gardens, Belmont Park, the Royal Albert Memorial Museum and the unique network of underground, vaulted passageways under the city.

Experience all this and more at Posbury Lodge.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £200.

About the location


Exeter 8.5 miles.

A busy market town 8.5 miles north west of the cathedral city of Exeter, and situated in an area of Devon known as “Red Devon” so called because of the distinctive red soil which is of prime agricultural quality, and excellent for growing swedes. This is a rural area of Devon which is tranquil, unspoilt and where ruby cattle are seen grazing amongst the rolling green meadows. There are many scattered villages with welcoming inns, well stocked farm shops and friendly locals. Crediton has a wide range of shops selling gifts and groceries, a fabulous farmers’ market, modern leisure centre and plenty of family friendly pubs. Crediton is less than 10 miles from Dartmoor National Park which provides excellent walking and horse riding opportunities and a half hour drive from the beautiful city of Exeter where there are theatres, stunning cathedral, shopping malls, and historic quay with waterfront cafes, antique shops and bars.
