The property

Resting in Devon's peaceful countryside on the outskirts of Winkleigh is this charming, lakeside lodge, Braeburn Lodge.

Sleeping up to six guests with one well-behaved dog, the property is ideally located for a rural escape with your loved ones, with local amenities are within easy reach.

Be greeted by off-road parking for two cars to unload your luggage, take in the fresh air and admire the idyllic location of Braeburn Lodge.

A handy utility is located near the entrance to throw muddy clothes straight into the washing machine and store the essentials for your four-legged friend.

A beautifully-appointed, open-plan living area is a bright and airy space for socialising and spending quality time with your family; snuggle up on the leather seating in front of the electric fire on colder nights and enjoy a movie on the Smart TV.

Why not open the patio doors during the summer months and let the fresh air in?

You'll hear the sounds of nature and birdlife whilst you settle down with a cup of tea and a good book on the decking area with rattan furniture.

A compact, well-equipped kitchen area hosts an island with a breakfast bar for two to keep the family chef company whilst they prepare an evening meal; an electric double oven and grill, gas hob and microwave can be found, alongside a convenient dishwasher.

Meals can be enjoyed at the dining table for six, whilst more outdoor furniture can be found on the lawn to dine alfresco in your gorgeous, countryside surroundings.

As the sun sets over the lake, retreat to the family bathroom for a relaxing soak in the tub or a rinse in the shower, before retiring for the night; a king-size bedroom with a dressing table and an en-suite bathroom, along with two snug twin rooms, all have plenty of storage space for your holiday essentials.

You'll have the shared, 10-acre site to explore throughout your stay, whether that's a stroll along the circular route around the fishing lake, through the apple trees in the orchard, or the woodlands and meadows; wildlife lovers will find plenty of creatures to look out for, including deer, rabbits and a variety of birdlife.

Journey into the centre of Winkleigh for two traditional pubs, offering home-cooked meals and local ciders, as well as a café, shop, butchers and post office for your self-catering needs.

Jump in the car and visit Halsdon Nature Reserve with a range of trails to venture along, whilst Dartmoor National Park is a natural playground for hikers, climbers and anyone seeking the great outdoors.

Stop off at Okehampton to tour the ruins of the 11th-century castle, discover local history at Museum of Dartmoor Life and wander the cobbled alleyways for traditional eateries to fuel your day.

The historic city of Exeter is another must-visit to admire the medieval, gothic cathedral, follow the Roman walls at Northernhay Gardens and enjoy a picnic at one of the riverside parks.

Choose Breaburn Lodge for a memorable holiday in the countryside.

About the location


Okehampton 10 miles; Torrington 13 miles; Exeter 23 miles; Barnstaple 20 miles.

Winkleigh is a small rural village in the heart of Devon's rolling countryside and offers a shop, post office, butcher and a cafe, plus two pubs, one which offers food and the chance to sample traditional ciders and scrumpy from the Winkleigh Cider Company. A van which serves delicious fish and chips also comes to the village twice a week. Winding lanes, high hedgerows and a more gentle pace of life characterise the area. The open tors of Dartmoor are a big attraction for nature lovers and walkers, while the hills of Exmoor and the surfing beaches can all be reached in 40 minutes by car. Historic Torrington, home to RHS Rosemoor and an arts centre is just 13 miles away, whilst the Cathedral City of Exeter with its Roman city walls, shopping centre, theatre and restaurants makes a great day out.
