  • "Fantastic retreat great location very comfortable will definitely book again."

    Only criticism is no blinds in either bathroom and extremely creaky upstairs floor boards wakes everyone up if you need to use bathroom in the night. If garden area was tidied up it would be perfect secluded holiday home.

  • "Lovely and cozy house perfect for a couple or group of 4 ."

    Me and my friends wanted to go away for a short time to North Devon as it was our last holiday together before University. The house is located in a stunning area surrounded by nature .It was perfect for going on walks but it’s far from town centres, shops , services etc. There are a few pubs nearby which are small drives away but we decided to walk it (20-30 mins). Apart from having troubles with starting the oven on the first day, the house was a perfect place to come back to after going out everyday.It had very comfortable beds ,pretty views from outside , it was clean and perfect size for us.It was also a good and affordable price too ! Overall , our 4 night stay couldn’t have been better.

    Excellent stay except for flies having windows and doors open never seen so many flies although fly killer was there I think something needs to be added about flies because if the lake and trees around x

    Sorry you had a problem with the flies it isn't normal, but I have noticed it is especially bad this year in the woods in the area. I checked with the people staying there now and they have had no problems so you must have been unlucky with the weather driving the flies inside. Property Owner

The property

Nestled on the outskirts of High Bickington, a quaint village in the heart of Devon lies the delightful, two-bedroom holiday home of 5 Forest Park Lodge.

Boasting off-road parking for up to two cars, a lawn with picnic bench, and gorgeous views overlooking the pristine surrounding countryside, this wonderful abode welcomes a small family or group of four friends sharing, who are seeking a refreshing escape just a short distance from the banks of the River Taw.

Park up, unpack, and make yourself at home in your lovely new lodgings, where you will find a collection of tastefully-presented living spaces.

A fully-equipped kitchen/diner invites you and your loved ones to prepare and enjoy delicious home-cooked dinners as you plan the rest of your stay, whilst a sitting room complete with two plush sofas and a sleek Smart TV serves as the social hub of the home, welcoming you and the group to kick back and unwind after a long day exploring.

When sleep inevitably calls, head upstairs to two double bedrooms, each of which comprises sumptuous bedding and are accompanied by their very own en-suite bathrooms.

When you’re ready, head out and discover what wonders and attractions your local area has to offer.

A short drive into the village of High Bickington will bring you to the High Bickington Community Shop, which sells homely essentials, and The Portsmouth Arms, where you can treat yourselves to a hearty evening pub meal or if the sun is shining sit out in their beer garden.

The Libbaton Golf Club also rests just outside of the village, perfect for the golf enthusiasts of the group.

Further afield, a brief car trip will take you to the bustling port town of Barnstaple, where you can spend time ambling through the scenic locales of the Mound and Rock Park, or even brush up on some local history at the Museum of Barnstaple & North Devon.

For a full day out, make a beeline for the brilliant Exmoor National Park, home to Landacre Bridge, the Exmoor Owl & Hawk Centre, and the National Trust landmark of Heddon Valley.

All of this and more is yours to enjoy when you book a stay at 5 Forest Park Lodge.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £250.
