  • "An excellent chalet, we had a bad experience with the last one we rented being cold, but Alder Lodge is warm and comfortable, well insulated with good heating."

    Everything works well and is fitted out to a good standard. There are great views all around and good access from the approach roads. The site managers Andrew and Clare were helpful, it's a well-run site. The location is ideal with good access to the coastal areas and also to Dartmoor. We look forward to staying there again in future.

    Thank you Clive you’re more than welcome to come back anytime pleasure to welcome you thank you for your positive review. Best regards Clare & Andrew. Property Owner

    We could not have chose a better place for our week away. The weather was kind to us and the view from our lodge over Dartmoor was amazing. Although it was a cold time of year the lodge was extremely well insulated and cozy. Looking forward to booking again in the future.

  • "February break: Excellent accommodation in a lovely location that is no more than 30min drive to rest of the beautiful English Rivera locations such as Torquay, Brixham."

    Very kind that fresh eggs and homemade cupcakes were there on arrival. We continued to buy their fresh chicken eggs for our stay. Accommodation was clean and ready for our stay. Central heating also kept us lovely and warm and the kitchen is well stocked. Our daughter also loved the park area and watching horses be lead out to the feild daily. Only thing it lists is furniture and bbq on the decking area which wasn’t there for our stay, I assume this is due to the time of year. However we had a few fresh Sunny Spring like days and would have happily sat out for a bit or even cooked on the bbq. Overall would recommend to everyone. Lovely site and friendly staff. We hope to return.

    Aww what a shame we were caught out with the weather being so nice if you had said we could of got the furniture we do pack it away in the winter months sorry. Property Owner

  • "The quality of this lodge is superb and it was very clean."

    The views are also lovely as were the chocolate muffins. The WiFi wasn't working when we arrived but this was put right very quickly and we had no problems using this during our stay. However there are hookups for caravans right outside the lodge and this would seriously impact both the views and the privacy of the lodge if there were caravans there - we went off season so they were empty when we were there. And just a couple of small points - it would be nice to have soap in both bathrooms on arrival, perhaps provide 5 dishwasher tablets instead of 2 and provide a couple of tablets for the washing machine? However we would happily return to this lodge

    Thank you for your feedback, which we always welcome. We have never had any complaints about the hook ups outside the property with or without a caravan present. We do include liquid soap for the bathrooms which is included in our welcome pack which we feel is a suitable gesture for a self catering property. We look forward to welcoming you back.

    Very comfortable lodge with all mod cons. Beds are never quite as comfortable as home but fine. Nice little shop with their own meat which was great. Good BBQ on our own patio. 2 really lovely evenings with those great views. Unfortunately the cafe on the site was closed as the chef had left. That was a shame but not the site fault. Would have just been the icing on the cake. Perhaps next time.

  • "Alder Lodge was lovely."

    On arrival there was fresh milk / eggs four homemade cupcakes and treats for our dog. This was such a lovely gesture and appreciated thank you A couple if points for future reference. The double mattress in the main bedroom was extremely uncomfortable there were springs digging in our backs etc. We did point this out to the site owners who gave us two duvets to put on top of the mattress. Slightly helped, however we would only book this lodge again if the mattress was changed to a new/decent quality mattress. The lodge itself was clean, However the outside was dirty and full of cobwebs (I spent 30 minutes or so, going round the whole of the outside lodge sweeping the cobwebs/dirt etc from the windows/seating area/round the lights/railings. Some cushions on the sofas would have been nice.

    Thank you for your feedback, we have spoken to the owners and they are looking into replacing the mattresses in the cottage and hope they will be able to action this soon. we are glad to hear you had a nice stay otherwise. Property Owner

    Arrived at the lodge and received a very warm welcome from the staff. We entered the lodge which was warm and spotlessly clean. Furnishings were lovely and of very good quality. There was everything you would need to be able to enjoy your break. We were also left some free-range eggs which were delicious and a bottle of milk alongside tea, coffee and sugar which was very welcome after a long journey. The site was peaceful and well maintained and I would imagine it to be a fabulous place to be in the height of the season with the great facilities it has. I would most definitely recommend anyone to try this holiday lodge and I would most definitely make a return visit sometime in the future. Thanks for a great week!

Newton Abbot is situated in the heart of The English Riviera, with its mild climate and thriving palm trees. The ancient market town now offers plenty of modern shops, both local and well-known high street chains and six leading brand supermarkets. There's also a racecourse where National Hunt racing takes place from spring until autumn, with craft fayres during the winter. Newton Abbot has a unique pub, the tap house and bottle shop, located in the building of what was a traditional working malthouse offering arguably the finest bottled beers in Devon. The seaside towns of Teignmouth, Shaldon and Dawlish are nearby and are fantastic destinations for families. Spend a day on the beach building sand castles and walk the impressive Victorian Pier at Teignmouth. The National Trust houses of Bradley Manor, Coleton Fishacre and Compton Castle and many others are well worth a visit, whilst the highlight of your stay will undoubtedly be the stunning beaches around Torquay and the many hidden coves such as Meadfoot, Oddicombe and further afield the pretty Ness Cove. And of course, the South West Coast Path provides stunning seascapes across the bay, with a popular stretch from Torquay Harbour to Daddyhole Plain, passing through Beacon Cove where Agatha Christie used to swim as a girl.
