  • "Peaceful and comfortable"

  • "I found the double bed uncomfortable."

    It was too firm for me. Also, the key safe is located using the ‘what three words’ system that I don’t understand. It would be better to say the key safe is on the fence post opposite the door. It was good to find that the single beds are suitable for adults.

    Thank you for taking the time to do a review, however we were very surprised and disappointed at your comments considering we had spoken and you sent a text saying “we are having a lovely time at your lodge.” You even asked if your friends who were staying in Mortehoe could stay at our lodge. Sorry you found the bed too hard, all our other guests found it to their liking, saying how comfortable the beds are and people have felt refreshed in the morning ready to explore beautiful Devon. When we spoke I did mention that Sykes had sent you an email with very clear instructions marked “Collecting your keys”, you said you must have a look for the email! Please do, so you can see for yourself. Hope you had a good journey home. Property Owner

  • "We have never stayed at a property with so much attention to detail."

    It was everything we wanted to experience. It was luxurious and secluded. Very close to the coast and other areas. We actually stayed when it was the hottest September on record and it was so enjoyable. The owners were in touch in order to ensure that we were pleased with their property, and of course we were.

The property

Nestled in the quiet Northwest corner of Mullacott Park just a short drive south of Ilfracombe, lies this charming, two-bedroom holiday home, Poppy Lodge.

Set over one floor in a delightful contemporary lodge, this property boasts off-road parking; gorgeous countryside setting that enjoys views of farmland, wild flora and fauna, then over the fields to the sea and Wales in the distance (on a fine day), making it an ideal choice for anyone seeking a refreshing, fuss-free escape to the heart of rural Devon. Park up and step into your new home-away-from-home, where you will be greeted by a well-presented, inviting, open-plan living space.

A fully-equipped kitchen, complete with an integrated electric oven and a tasteful central island with gas hob await the chosen chef, whilst dining indoor and outdoor dining seating allow for intimate or alfresco mealtimes.

In warmer months, take a glass of your favourite beverage out onto the furnished, enclosed decking area, where you and your loved ones can raise a glass to toast your getaway whilst you soak in the stunning surrounding countryside.

In the evenings, gather in the sitting room to enjoy watching the sun go down, watch a BD/DVD plug in your USB stick to stream your favourite shows or use the Freesat box to watch TV, before you retire to a plush double with TV and DVD or the twin bedroom for a well-earned slumber.

In the morning, enjoy a hot espresso from the Tassimo coffee machine before you set out to explore what your local area has to offer.

Make a short car/bus journey to Woolacombe, widely regarded as one of the best in the UK, great for relaxing taking in some sun (weather dependant) walking next to the gentle waves, fly a kite, make a sandcastle go shopping or have a go at surfing (training and equipment hire available).

Enjoy a Devon breakfast with a coffee looking over the beach at the Beachcomber café Vegan menu. Take a walk to Morte Point to enjoy some seal watching or walk or ride along some of the 180-mile long Tarka trail 32miles of which is flat and traffic free!

Or pop up onto the wilds of Exmoor National Park 9 miles to the east.

Take in a show at the Landmark theatre.

There are so many options to choose from including visiting Lynton and Lynmouth, Clovelly, The Lynton & Barnstaple Railway (Woody Bay Station), Falconry and sheep dog display (during summer), play golf in Ilfracombe or Saunton, ride a horse and see the Alpaca’s or a Segway Safari just down the road.

With foot golf, and even banger racing just over the road!
