  • "Very nice little cabin in a beautiful part of North Devon with lots of fantastic walks close by."

    Several small but very easily and cheaply remedied issues that past residents have mentioned in the visitors book (broken toilet roll holder, frayed vacuum mains lead, wobbly kitchen tap etc) that should be sorted. Otherwise place clean and comfortable. Limited kitchen cooking equipment that is adequate but only just and provision of single toilet roll for 3 people for a week not sufficient. Overall nice accomodation that could be great if some small things were addressed.

  • "The lodge is in a great position on a lovely friendly site."

    We immediately felt at home. We really appreciated the extra effort that was made to provide the plant based milk, vegan wine and vegetable nachos. We would stay again and recommend it to anyone.

  • "The lodge is on a beautiful site with lovely walks available from the site."

    We only used our car a couple of days to explore the area. The lodge was well equipped, comfortable and clean. Nice friendly people and nice and quiet.

  • "We loved our stay because it is really close to all the beautiful places and the stunning coastline of Exmoor."

    The lodge is situated in the middle of the (little and quiet)park not at the edge. Not a big problem but I can not find that in the advertisement. And the beds are very very hard,maybe a topper will solve that problem. But it is a very beautiful surrounding with many possibilities to explore Exmoor national park,you don't even need a car to explore Exmoor. Our son enjoyed fishing in the river next to the lodge. We enjoyed out stay very much.

  • "We were delighted with the lodge."

    Everything was very clean. The welcome pack was excellent. The new patio chairs were very comfortable. The location was excellent. We did have a slight reservation on parking the car as the space seemed a bit tight but after a couple of times we worked out how to do it. We cannot find a bad thing to say about it. As for the area, well it was a fantastic place to stay and we met so many nice people. Yes there are hills to go up and down but that is a feature of the area so expected that. Came home feeling very relaxed and fitter even with eating cream teas etc. Would certainly go there again.

  • "All in all we found this property ideal for us it was clean and comfortable we felt the housekeeper had thought of everything the welcome pack was lovely and such a surprise as the property we had previously rented had none of the little extras."

    The only issue would be a couple of the outside chairs were broken underneath. Would recommend this lodge, we also found walking into Lynton each day was easy and only took about 20 minutes we are retired and my husband has a heart condition but he didn’t have a problem with this walk at all nor did our very old dog!

    Thank you, we're glad you enjoyed your visit. Our housekeeper does a wonderful job of cleaning and providing necessary items plus little extras. Outside chairs were repaired in November 2022 as a temporary measure. The complete set of table and chairs were replaced with new in March 2023. Property Owner

  • "Hi, We had the most enjoyable stay."

    The lodge was clean and tidy and well presented and perfectly located for walks on the woods. The only item that would have been handy was a parasol for the table. Given the unprecedented heat wave we could not sit out side on the veranda until after sun set (even in the morning the sun was burning hot so had to sit inside for breakfast). It was a short 10 /15 minute walk into lynton. If you want to go to Lynmouth it was a simple case of jumping on a bus from Lynton or walking down the foot path, again 10 /15 minute walk. If your fit enough and wish to burn some calories you can easily walk back up but it’s steep ! However we used a taxi after dusk which we booked in advance and he took our dog as well. The restaurant right next door to the site which is also a pub had a good variety of ales and beers and they also allow dogs in the bar area. All in all we had a fantastic stay and will definitely be telling our friends and family and recommending staying at the lodge. Regards Paul

    Thank you Paul, Really glad you enjoyed your stay. Property Owner

  • "Lovely lodge ."

    All clean and fresh.. no sun in evening nr the lodge. Only morning sun. No way can you walk into nearest villages due to steep hills. Be prepared to have to drive up and down 25% hills either way everyday. Pub at site more a restaurant. Serving tai food. Expensive. But had a takeaway that served us 4 ..2 days. Lovely food. Well worth it. Limited choices of beers / largers etc at pub and spirits expensive. Staff working on site very friendly and helpful. Beautiful site surrounded by trees. Great walks for dogs .

  • "This is a mixed review really."

    On one hand there is everything that you could need for your stay and the kitchen is well appointed with plenty of equipment and utensils. The lovely welcome pack was really lovely and we very much appreciated it. Everything was very clean and the new bathroom very nice. Having access to Netlix and Prime Video was good to have too. But...there are issues that really do deserve to be addressed. The property is ageing and needs some care and tlc. Apart from very dated furnishings e.g. curtains, beds and sofas, the covering on the wardrobe doors and drawers is peeling away badly. The outside furniture needs touching up and maintaining. I had to email the housekeeper to inform them that 2 of the 4 chairs were badly broken. They must have been aware of the problem as there was old glue on one of the breaks in a poor repair job. I've never stayed in a property that requires you to pour a bucket of water down the toilet in order to flush it properly. Thank goodness a bucket was supplied! All in all that was the biggest bug bear of the place. It's such a shame as the property has the makings of a beautiful place to stay in wonderful surroundings. Kitchen and bathroom aside, the caravan appears tatty and cheap. Please don't think I am one of those people that likes to moan at any available opportunity, but am someone who feels the owner needs to put a little more money into the accommodation! Unfortunately, we wouldn't return until improvements are made, nor could we recommend the property to others.

  • "Toilet pressure unable to flush away !"

    Men used toilet block. Previous holiday makers dirty underwear left in bottom drawer of double room oven filthy. Dogs hairs under cushions on settee. And in one of single beds. Want to point out that the actual sunny Lyn campsite is amazing and beautifully clean. Our cabin 2 little ducks is privately rented so cleaned privately too , needs to be addressed by owner. Not a reflection on sunny Lyn at all. Stunning place.

    Both myself and our Housekeeper refute some of the claims in this review. As a lodge owner who lives in Guernsey, Channel Islands it is not possible to keep a constant watch on our property. However, as it happened in this instance, I was the next resident of Two Little Ducks after Mr. Pratt and his party. As usual on my arrival I found the lodge to be in its usual expected clean and tidy state. Being a dog owner myself I know that it is almost impossible to retrieve every single pet hair on every occasion and also am aware that hairs can travel into the most surprising places! On each of our Owner Visits I check that things are as I would expect to find them and once again found no hairs under cushions etc. ( We assume that Mr. Pratt and his party are not dog lovers, which begs the question, Why stay in Pet-Friendly Accommodation?). My Housekeeper says she found nothing in any of the bedroom drawers on changeover. (if this was the case why didn't Mr.Pratt contact her with his issues?), neither our cleaner or myself have found anything since. With reference to the Oven. It was definitely not filthy! Yes I agree that the rack shelves were not sparkling but the general state of the oven was clean and certainly fit to cook in. It is not always possible in a short changeover period to do a complete oven clean. Just a note to let you know that during my visit I undertook to do a proper rack clean. We have no problem with the toilet flush, it works perfectly. The shower (not mentioned) may be a little low on water pressure as it is not a power shower, but Mr. Pratt and his party had no rights to use the Camp Site's shower and toilet block. (we assume from his comments that any female members of the group were happy with our lodge's toilet facilities?) As he pointed out we are a privately owned cabin and nothing to do with the Site administration at all. " Further to other previous reviews: - "Criticism of the outside decking area was addressed by myself during my visit at my earliest "Post Covid" opportunity in July. The decking was cleaned, outdoor furniture cleaned and teak-oiled. All old "dead" plants removed and containers weeded plus 3 new planted troughs installed. The top of steps outdoor solar PIR light was replaced. All balustrades and rails plus part of the main lodge walls were rubbed down and coated with fresh wood stain treatment. Also the bird feeders were cleaned/replaced and refilled with fresh seed, to the delight of the local avian community!Inside the lodge, we had it painted and decorated and new carpets fitted in February. Following on from reports of a "dodgy" bathroom floor, after investigation we had remedial work done in July to make safe. We are currently trying to arrange a proper repair and refit.

  • "The cabin itself was fine, very clean but basic."

    Unfortunately the site was not as we had hoped. We booked expecting that we would be on a site where we could use the facilities. Under the circumstances we did not expect to use the club house because of Covid-19 restrictions, although your advert did state that we could. However on arrival we were a little early, half an hour, my husband needed to use the toilet after a long drive. He was told by the site supervisor that we could not use the toilets, which were sign posted, because they belonged to him and we were in the cabins which were privately owned and "not part of his site", even though we were on the site. We were told off for parking in the wrong spot on arrival, our parking bay had the cleaners van still in it. We were made to feel extremely unwelcome. Every time we walked though the camp we were watched in an unfriendly manor. For someone who works in the hospitality industry he was incredibly inhospitable. We will not be using this site again, we feel that this holiday has been miss sold to us as we had expected to use all amenities however even the basic use of site WC's was refused. The lady who cleaned the cabin however was incredibly kind and helpful to us.

  • "The lodge was very clean, and the location is beautiful."

    The owners kindly leave bird food for visitors to place in feeders a few feet from the door. We greatly enjoyed watching the birds. The bed could do with a new mattress, as the springs are very prominent, but otherwise the accommodation is very comfortable. The heating thermostat is ridiculously close to the kitchen radiator, so always 'thinks' the property is warmer than it really is. The bedroom was cold unless the thermostat was turned up very high, at which time the kitchen was boiling hot.

    Just a 15 min walk into Lynton along a dedicated footpath plus cliff railway to get down to Lynmouth. Lovely walks directly into Exmoor Forest from the site. Site was small and quiet. All we could hear was wildlife and the River Lyn cascading over rocks. Truly beautiful - even in the rain! Nice pub with Thai restaurant next door. Good eateries in Lynton. Lodge was warm, clran and comfortable - only issue to report is integral DVD player not working. No EE coverage on site but WIFI good so could connect to EE network via 'WIFI calling'. WhatsApp also an option. Cream Tea on arrival most welcome.

    Our arrival instruction gave the entry time of 3pm. We were told by the cleaner it was 4pm and she had a big clean up to do. We were happy to wait till it was ready but found the site staff very unhelpful with regard to parking even suggesting we wait in town. After a six hour journey this was not ideal so we hovered till the cleaner left. The lodge was clean but the decking was not and there was a pile of bread chunks on the outside table and it generally looked tired. We did enjoy our holiday and are hoping to return in the Spring.

Grey and Pied Wagtails regularly frequent the picturesque wooded river valley alongside the lodge and the Dipper is a common sight bobbing up and down on stones in the shallows.

Well behaved dogs are welcome to share your enjoyment of the lodge and many fantastic energising walks are here right on the door step, as well as dog-friendly pubs, but please be aware that all dogs must be kept on a lead within the Holiday Park site.

Alongside the Holiday Park is the Cottage Inn Public House which is home to the Fat Belly Brewery (wonderful home-brewed Craft Ales) as well as Nartnapa Thai Kitchen Restaurant (authentic Thai/Asian cuisine – also available as Take away).

You can be assured of a warm welcome from the friendly team and you may even be lucky enough to turn up when there is live music in the bar.

At night when walking “home” you can hear Tawny and Little Owls in the valley and see other nocturnal creatures like bats and moths.

Exmoor is a designated “Dark Sky Reserve” with its low light pollution creating great conditions for star-gazing Both Lynton and Lynmouth are accessible on foot (via The Lyn Way, a 15 minute stroll right into Lynton from opposite the pub) or 5 minutes by car.

The South West Coast Path, Two Moors Way and The Coleridge Way all converge at Lynton/Lynmouth.

There is a metal sculpture for the SWCP on the Sea Front at Lynmouth right opposite the Information Office and The Esplanade Fish Bar (some of the best fish ‘n’ chips in the West Country).

The National Trust property at Watersmeet is also a must visit experience.

When on Exmoor, no visit is complete without seeing the wild roaming Exmoor Ponies, they can regularly be found on Foreland past the top of the steep Countisbury Hill or on the rugged moorland over Brendon Hill.

Other animals abound including many local Devon Red and a few Highland Cattle, plus numerous sheep, and of course Red Deer (several companies offer Deer and Wildlife Safaris).

Over the top past Countisbury on the A39 lies Porlock and Porlock Weir, charming twin villages with many interesting cultural and natural history treasures to discover.

You can vary the route by using the scenic toll road.

For literary lovers the fictional Doone Valley is within easy reach.
