  • "Just amazing all round."

    There is not a thing this owner hasn't thought about. Well done and we will be back.

  • "Nice lodge in a very quiet area."

    Good forest and river walks nearby. The roads nearby are narrow and pot holey so we avoided driving. Needed google maps to find it as the sat nav took us to Clifford Bridge, then needed 2 left turns along a narrow muddy lane to spot the lodges. Lodge is well furnished. Washing machine and tumble drier needed a clean before we could use them. TV has a Humax box - ok for live tv but not streaming. WiFi was fine. No mobile phone signal but a coin operated landline phone is provided. Kitchen is well equipped and included a dish washer. Fridge with freezer compartment. Milk, tea, etc. provided.l to start you off. No shops nearby so bring plenty of food. Bed is comfortable with a thick duvet. Bathrooms are dated but perfectly usable. Long walk to the recycling area as it’s near the entrance

  • "We had a lovely holiday."

    The lodge was a real home from home: the sofas, dining chairs and bed mattresses were incredibly comfortable. The main bathroom was excellent with a lovely shower, however the ensuite hot water had very low pressure at the sink. The front right plate on the hob didn't ignite but we used the other 3. There was a great selection of cutlery and crockery. The only thing missing was a wooden spoon which would have been handy. The lodge is in a gorgeous setting and was very peaceful. The veranda was a real sun trap in the mornings and great for having breakfast out there. We would definitely like to go back. Thank you.

  • "Lovely place, very tranquil and quiet."

    I did contact the landlord as the WiFi wouldn't work. I did say not to worry as it was nice to get away from technology. The mattress we're not very comfortable.

    Thank you for taking the time to complete your feedback. We are glad that you enjoyed both the property and its location. The WiFi issue has now been sorted. The twin beds have both been replaced. The double mattress is fine but may for some people be a little softer than what you may be used to at home. We do hope that we might be able to welcome you back to the property again, in the not too distant future. Property Owner

Enjoying an idyllic setting in the deep wooded river valley, whilst being a scenic drive from the coastal locations of Teignmouth, Torquay and Paignton, Clifford Bridge Lodges is a fantastic choice for families looking to escape to this beautiful region. The lodges feature delightful open-plan living spaces, thoughtfully presented bedrooms and bathrooms, along with private decked areas with furniture. Make the most of this idyllic setting in Dartmoor National Park by enjoying the vast array of activities on offer: go cycling or pull on your walking boots, where breathtaking views of the surrounding countryside are guaranteed, or try something more adventurous like horse riding, canoeing, climbing or abseiling! The national park is even home to Dartmoor Zoo where the whole family can admire the array of animals on display in 33 acres of parkland. Visit the nearby National Trust attractions of Finch Foundry or Castle Drogo or try the RHS Stone Lane Gardens. Stock up on the essentials at Moretonhampstead or Chagford and enjoy a choice of individual cafés and eateries. Alternatively, venture further afield to the coast, find the golden sands of Dawlish Warren Beach where the kids can play safely in the water, thanks to the lifeguard service, while you marvel at the stunning views across the English Channel.
