  • "We had a lovely few days of relaxing."

    Birds chirping away so was peaceful. Nice place to stay had everything you needed. We enjoyed pool table, darts so plenty to do best of all for us was hot tub. Even in the rain was lovely lol. Pub was to far to go hills etc but we had plenty in doors.

    Thank you for your feedback! We're thrilled to hear that you enjoyed the peaceful ambiance with the birds chirping and found our place well-equipped with activities like pool, darts, and the hot tub—even in the rain! We're sorry to hear about the distance to the pub, but glad you found plenty to do indoors. We hope to welcome you back for another relaxing stay soon! Property Owner

  • "Absolutely stunning Lodge, well equipped and very spacious."

    The cakes and Hot Cross Buns were a lovely touch... Charlie and the team have thought of everything. Pool table, Hot Tub, Dart Board and plenty of games to keep everyone occupied during the evenings... ( unfortunately it rained all week! But who can control the weather

    Thank you so much for taking the time to review our property. Charlie from the cleaning and management company really do pull out all the stops and we are grateful to have them and to see their hardwork being received so well. I'm glad you enjoyed our facilities, it's a lovely place to spend a cosy winter retreat with family and friends. Property Owner

  • "My husband and I and our two dogs had a wonderful stay at Hazelwood Lodge."

    The lodges are situated in a very secluded forest on a hill and has stunning views. The lodge itself is very clean and cosy. The upstairs living room/bar area is a lovely area to relax at night where you can watch TV and play pool. This leads out to the terrace and hot tub, which was filled and hot on arrival. We enjoyed sitting in there star gazing, I've never seen such bright stars! The lodge is surrounded by lovely dog friendly pubs, we visited the Exeter Inn and the Bell Inn, both around 10 minutes away, and both did lovely food, I'd highly recommend them. There's seems to be so many hidden gems in the surrounding area and we're looking forward to coming back to try more! We enjoyed lovely dog walks in Woolacombe beach and Watersmeet at Lynmouth, we also took a trip to Braunton which has lovely restaurants and shops. Most places we travelled were around 30 minutes away but the drives were very pretty, driving through countryside and by rivers and streams. Make sure you bring what you need as the nearest shop is a garage around 10 minutes drive away. It's a beautiful, quite, idyllic holiday retreat and we could not recommend it enough and look forward to returning again soon!

    Thank you for taking the time to leave such lovely feedback, we're glad you enjoyed your stay with your partner and dogs. We always have so much fun taking our dog for walks when staying at the lodge. There are some fantastic places to visit in North Devon. Property Owner

  • "I booked this super last minute and was worried after i read another review on here!"

    But the directions to the lodge were fab, the lodge its self was great - it was clean and tidy. Was a little tired in places but nothing off putting. the pool table and games were perfect. Hot tub was very relaxing although did start to smell a bit after a couple of days so we put it through a few clean cycles. The owner was great with communication, as i has said yes to a high chair but there wasn't one. He arranged for us to pick one up from a local pub which was nice. I would say if you have very small children then it could do with a couple of stair gates so you could relax a bit more (i had 1 crawler). It is very secluded for us townies! 25mins to the closest Tesco! But we made sure we stocked up after a trip out. Overall, very reasonably priced and a very peaceful break. Great communication and a lovely well equipped lodge

    Thank you for your kind feedback and comments that were taken on board for future bookings. Property Owner

  • "This property is un loved it’s a shame cos it could be really nice , the approach to the property needs weeds pulling up and more stone putting down on the side not a good first look , then when you get to the front of the property glazed units that have failed in the patio doors need replacing not a good start to the week away ?"

    Then the outside furniture well what can I say shocking all the rattan torn and mould to two of the foot stools stored under the seating , the table has had a bad repair done to it so it rocks so much you couldn’t eat at it so we didn’t what a shame it’s certainly passed it’s Selby date , cleaning of the glass on the veranda was-non existent this was full off green moss on every panel on both sides don’t know when that was last cleaned . The inside of the property had a lot of dust around it the top off the wardrobes head board and underneath the double bed was ,shocking not been cleaned for quite a while nearly all the drawers in the double bed were broken couldn’t use them , non of the windows had been cleaned inside or out , when entering the property a lot of the furniture seem to be cheap and poorly made , the washing machine broke on first use they come and repaired it by gluing the buttons back in so told to very gentle When using it , one good thing about the property is the pool table that’s it’s we certainly wont be returning . I know the outside pool doesn’t belong to the owner of the property we stayed at but that also needs money spending on it all the wooden benches broken and rotten all the plastic furniture was really really old all had passed there Selby date well there was only one table and about 5 chairs , the rest of the pool are certainly needs maintaining very un cared for we certainly didn’t use it but other people on the site did xx

    We had issues with this booking pretty much straight away when it was clear they were a bigger party than the lodge is advertised for. When our management team visited due to an issue with power, we found damages, furniture moved outside and mess everywhere. They were aggressive and abusive to our management team, who are always so helpful and supportive. The review was a response to these issues and their way of trying to get ahead of potential contra charges. I'm sure anyone reading will understand there will always be these types of people out there and to read the other reviews, which are all positive. Property Owner

  • "Lovely property, well placed on complex, lovely welcome with radio on and scones, hot tub ready etc."

    Loved that dog was included. Initial communications confusing but confusion over wifi resolved quickly by Charlie. So in the end just about extra bed description which wasn't a worry for us and no bbq - shame but again we could manage. Found key ok. Really enjoyed our stay and be very happy to recommend to friends. Indeed we already have. I would have liked a bit more info about supermarkets/food options and we travelled for the pizza only to find we had to order and wait times were long, so a drag out for nothing. We had a great Sunday lunch at The Exeter Inn. Location was quite remote so we did have a drive to go to places. I would think you would have to be happy to stay in mostly without a car. Remote location and lack of polution was great for dark skies however which we did enjoy. I would have rated higher but for the price. Our only real disappointment was the pool which was cold and very shallow. We would probably have overlooked that if you could actually swim in it. Kids may be able to but I could not comfortably.

    Thank you for your lovely review Property Owner
