  • "Very clean and modern, great to be welcomed in person and spoken through the heating, hot tub, wood burner etc."

    We appreciated the small touches too- hot tub ready for us as soon as we got there, lovely scones, nespresso coffees. Amazing view to wake up to, a very relaxing break away!

    to have a shelf on the wall inside the shower to place your toiletries etc ( had to put them on the floor) 2. A cupboard next to the sink, to put your toilet/ make up bags on ( again had to place on the floor) 3. Drawers in the bedroom so you can place your case on top of them ( instead of on the floor) only minor details . Would definitely stay again thankyou

  • "Absolutely amazing property."

    Very peaceful and quiet, and the property has been done to a really high standard. Very well equipped. Lots of lovely nice touches like having the hot tub ready for use when we arrived, and a scone, jam and cream waiting for us. Location is a great base for getting around this part of Devon, but is delightfully secluded and quiet at the same time. The lodge is comfy and lovely and warm. Fantastic views. Nothing negative to say at all

    Beautiful location, ideal if you seeking a bit of privacy but owners close by if any queries. The lodge is really warm and cosy with everything you need for catering in if you desire. Garden enclosed so safe for dogs. Easy access to lots of various attractions. We would definitely return.

    ! Upon arrival we were greeted by Elizabeth and Neil, (2 of the nicest people you could ever meet) and the hot tub was ready for us to jump straight in. The Lodge itself is just gorgeous!! Very clean and it smelt amazing. We wanted for nothing, Elizabeth and Neil have thought of everything. And being dog friendly is a massive bonus. The views are just breathtaking and it's very quiet and peaceful there. The pictures do it no justice at all. It is absolutely stunning. We highly recommend Nelli Lodge 100% to everyone. We are definitely going back next year and cannot wait!! Thank you both so much for your hospitality, see you next year.

    The lodge is immaculate , cosy and comfortable. The garden is perfectly rustic and secure. The hot tub a luxurious bonus and easy to stoke up and get going. The mile long lane down to the lodge needs careful manipulating; much trickier in the dark so make sure you have all the snacks and supplies you’ll need before heading to the lodge. The area of Cheriton Fitzpaine is lost in time; very quaint and very quiet. The walk to Thornes Farm Shop for a lovely breakfast took 40 mins each way; great care was taken on the walk due to no footpath. A lovely stay

    The owners have thought of everything to make our stay extremely comfortable- the place was spotlessly clean and everything smelt lovely- bedding, blankets, dressing gowns etc. the owners are there if you need anything and are extremely helpful but you do have complete privacy. We had booked a roast dinner at The Ring of Bells, a beautiful pub 5 mins away - due to circumstances we couldn’t make the reservation but was able to ask for it as a takeaway- would highly recommend the meal. If you’re looking for peace and comfort with beautiful views then look no further. Would love to return.
