  • "What a fantastic lodge!"

    The owners were amazing and how well equipped it was. Clean, tidy and great amenities. A perfect home from home. Perfect local area for exploring and an even better base for the surrounding. Would highly recommend and certainly stay again

    Mr BerridgeOct 2021

  • "A lovely stay in a lovely property - there was everything we needed for our stay and we hope to come again next year"

    Mr LevettOct 2021

  • "It's not often anything truly exceeds expectations but, wow, this place did just that."

    From the homemade 'welcome' cream tea, fresh flowers, tea/coffee/milk supplies to the hospitality shown by the owners (Jill & John). We would absolutely recommend and would not hesitate in booking with Sykes again.

    Mrs HoweSep 2021

  • "If you go walking on the hills be aware that there are Adders in the bracken and ferns and sometimes sunbathing on the boulders (!"

    ) If you are worried about driving on twisty narrow roads and about scratching your car when your mirrors are in the hedges down the narrow lanes this is not the area of Devon for you We forgot to fill out the visitors' book but we would give a glowing report.

    Mrs Grewal-barrettAug 2021

  • "Had a warm welcome by the owner Jill & John and lovely homemade baking on arrival and fresh flowers ."

    The lodge was spotlessly clean and had everything we needed for our stay, was well thought out down to the dog treats and bowls for your furry friend. The surrounding area was so tranquil and relaxing a hidden gem. Our 4yr old little boy absolutely loved been surrounded by all the animals on the farm , would highly recommend a stay.

    Mrs PearceAug 2021

  • "Lovely property - spacious, well-appointed and welcoming extra touches from the hosts including a cream tea on arrival and fresh flowers in every room."

    There is plenty to do locally around Chagford, and the location is a good base from which to explore south Devon.

    Mrs HadlandJul 2021

  • "Cottage was very clean and well equipped ."

    All seating and bed very comfortable and there were large powerful showers and plenty of storage space .

    Mrs TyrerJun 2021

  • "Beautiful secluded quiet location - ideal for exploring south Devon and north Cornwall"

    Mr SmithMay 2021

  • "We found the property very well equipped and extremely comfortable."

    The views over the surrounding countryside were splendid. We hope to return towards the end of the year.

    Mr HuddMay 2021

  • "We highly recommend Shilston Lodge the owner has taken great care to lovingly decorate and carefully consider what is required to ensure you have a relaxing, comfy, stress free break!"

    The warm welcome of homemade scones, milk in the fridge and a little something for the dog was enough to make us feel at home for the week. The kitchen was well stocked with good quality utensils, we could have easily made a roast if we wished. Beds were comfy with soft clean linen, and towels nice and fluffy. Good hot showers too! The property was spotless with plenty of handwash/antibac. The location of the lodge is perfect for exploring the local area, and getting out onto the moors. We had a truly wonderful break in one of the best cottages we have stayed to date! Thank you.

The property

Situated in a quiet, rural location on the owner's 120-acre working farm within Dartmoor National Park is this delightful cottage, Shilstone Lodge.

Enjoy relaxing within the lovely open-plan living space, where charming cottage style comes together with contemporary features.

Beneath the ceiling beams, rustle up delicious food in the country style kitchen with views out to the countryside beyond from the windows.

A pretty dining area lies next to the kitchen, as well as the sitting area presenting plush seating so you can relax after a fun-filled day.

The ground floor is home to the king-size bedroom, an elegant space with feature wallpaper and plenty of storage, as well as a shower room.

Head up into the sloping eaves and find the second bedroom, with two single beds and an en-suite shower room offering another homely spot and more wonderful views.

You can enjoy sitting out on the decking with a morning coffee as you wake up to the sound of the countryside around you, with your own lawn space to make use of too.

Guests have access to the 120-acre grounds and with prior arrangement with the owner, you can try a spot of fishing in the lake on site.

Good food lovers will be spoilt for choice with the range of restaurants and pubs found in the picturesque town of Chagford and the many picture perfect villages nearby.

Walkers too will love the choice of moor and river walks nearby.

Stroll along the Teign Gorge to Castle Drogo, a National Trust-owned country house designed in a medieval style with beautiful grounds to explore.

From there journey on to the Fingle Bridge Inn for a hearty pub lunch on the banks of the River Teign.

In the summer months, Chagford Swimming Pool, an open-air river-fed public pool is a brilliant place to spend a sunny day.

As well as being within reach of east and south Devon golden sandy beaches and more pretty towns to see, Shilstone Lodge is a perfect pick for a Dartmoor stay.
