    The accommodation was beautiful and really well thought out. The views were beautiful and so much wildlife around. The village is so pretty and everyone is very friendly. A lovely place to visit and totally relax and recharge. We'll be back!

  • "There is a sign on the door which says “Welcome."

    Come in relax and enjoy!” The stresses and strains of daily life ebb away swiftly as one loses ones’ self in the tranquility of the epic vista as the land slopes down through long waving grasses and poppies to the otter-inhabited lake with ducks and teaming wildlife; then climbs to bleating sheep-filled fields: thence to the scene of the historic Prayer Book rebellion of 1549. As one sits outside one watches woodpeckers,finches, robins, redstarts, blackbirds, sparrows,geese, ducks, squirrels,birds of prey, goats, sheep, otters and badgers- all at close quarters. Inside there is a nine camera monitor available 24/7 where one can watch the otters,ducks,badgers and others from the comfort of the sofa. Set on the edge of a very pretty village with church and pub this is a fabulous location for easy to reach travel to both coasts north Cornwall and many pretty villages, market towns and cathedral city. As was once famously said: “I ll be back!”

  • "Lovely cosy lodge."

    Gorgeous view to wake up to each morning and comfortable retreat to come back to in the evening. Fascinating to learn about the wildlife from the owner. It was a perfect break for us and Connie the Springer spaniel thoroughly enjoyed it too.

    Hi Mr and Mrs O’Marah Thank you so much for your review. We’re so pleased you enjoyed your stay. Maybe we’ll see you again. Kind regards. Julie and Mike Property Owner

  • "We originally booked this venue in order to escape from some very dusty carpentry work at our home for a few days."

    We needed an accessible building in a quiet area with good facilities and reviews. How LUCKY we were! From the cream tea waiting in the fridge on our arrival to the fabulous, easy to use, wood burning stove. From incredible scenic views through our picture window to the livestream wildlife camera coverage system. The facilities really are first class here. The owner, Mike, is always contactable but never intrusive and always happy to help. We really enjoyed watching the wild birds visiting the feeders from the covered decking area and the antics of a flock of wild geese who seemed to spend much of their time in the paddock between the cabin and the lake below. We didn't do much sightseeing because we already had everything we needed in this wonderfully private and beautiful place. However, we did buy plenty of delicious local farm food within a 5 mile drive, after which a walk to explore the many tracks and fields was most welcome. Don't hesitate to book this very special place if you get the chance! Kind regards, Rosie and Juls.

  • "It was a wonderful, cosy property in a quiet village."

    The location was good for exploring the county. It was an absolute gem if you are a nature lover as it had a lake where you could observe geese, heron, otters, squirrels and owls. A variety of garden birds also visited the bird table. We would highly recommend this lodge for a holiday in Devon.

  • "We very much enjoyed our stay at Langdale Lodge."

    The location was excellent to use as a base from which you can spend several days exploring the Moors and the many historical sites within. We particularly enjoyed the wildlife cameras which are scattered across the grounds - thank you to Mike for sharing video clips of the nature (Owls, Woodpeckers, Kingfishers, Otters and Moorhens amongst others). After a long day of exploring the wood-burner is a particular plus, which very quickly warmed up the lodge. Would certainly recommend to any couple looking for a few days break away from the busy world...

  • "The holiday was good except for one particular thing."

    As the bed was pushed right against the wall it was difficult for one of us getting in and out of the bed. Did cause some problems in the night. Apart from that all was good.

  • "The cabin had everything we needed to spend a great week in Devon, it’s such a cosy place."

    We particularly enjoyed the amazing view and the cctv cameras to spot the local animals (Buttons, the owners’ cat, is also really friendly). The sofa is a recliner so that was a great surprise and we also liked the log burner. Every detail had been carefully thought out: there was even a basket for cream tea! Overall it was a great experience.

  • "We had a very relaxing holiday at Langdale Lodge despite the disappointing July weather."

    The lodge was very cosy and tastefully decorated and had everything we needed should we want to cook a meal. The outdoor space was super with a lovely view of the owners' meadow and lake. We particularly loved the bird feeders with many different birds visiting each day and the wildlife cameras. It was so peaceful. The village is very pretty and you can walk to the local pub in minutes. It is a great base for exploring Dartmoor with some fantastic walks near Oakehampton. We would certainly book again.

About the location

SAMPFORD COURTENAY

Okehampton 2.5 miles.

Midway between Sampford Courtenay, a sleepy but picturesque Devon village, and Okehampton, a thriving community known as ‘the gateway to the moor’. The whole area is a country lover’s dream. The high tors of northern Dartmoor dominate the scenery and provide a splendid backdrop to Okehampton nestling in a valley where tumbling moorland rivers join before heading to the sea. For miles around, the area is famous for its country pubs that between them provide welcome rest after a day exploring the paths, cycle ways and stunning countryside. On a clear day the view from the top of High Willhays (the highest point south of the Pennines) will take your breath away. Country pursuits and crafts are a way of life and a trip to the Dartmoor Visitor Centre and country museum in Okehampton are musts. Look also at the pretty moorland villages of Chagford, Belstone and Sticklepath to savour a way of life that’s becoming increasingly rare.
