  • "Seven Oaks is a fantastic place to stay, it has all you need and more."

    A quite place to rest, also close to all facilities, Restaurants, City center, shopping, Golf courses/driving and quite a few historic and tourist places to visit. Most of all the host at Seven Oaks was very cooperative and supportive at all times, ready to help.

  • "The property was beautiful and cozy, actually much larger than it looks in the pictures."

    Spotlessly clean. We booked in for Christmas and the owners had put a nice big Christmas tree and decor in the lodge which made us feel very homely. The kitchen was fully equipped for making a wide spread of Christmas meal. The fresh eggs, milk, dog biscuits was a lovely gesture by the owners. We reached the property outside the office hours, but the owner was very approachable and friendly and helped us in finding the property and keys. It was mostly raining during our stay so couldn't enjoy the views outside but on the day we left, sun finally came out and we saw the beautiful mountains and panoramic scenery from the deck. I wish we could extend our stay further, but we are definitely going to book this property again in future.

  • "Birch lodge was great and exceeded expectations."

    Really nice decking area that was fully enclosed allowing for us to enjoy it with the dog. The views over the hills were beautiful. The whole lodge was really well furnished and we couldn’t have been more impressed. The little extras like the fresh eggs from the farm and homemade cake were special touches. Staff are friendly and helpful. The vibe on the site in general was nice and welcoming. We were only there for the weekend but could happily have spent much longer. As well as being on a great site for facilities it’s also a great base for exploring the wider area.

About the location

NEWTON ABBOT

Teignmouth 5 miles; Shaldon 5 miles; Torquay 10 miles; Exeter 18 miles; Plymouth 31 miles

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. Newton Abbot provides a fabulous base for an English seaside holiday all year round.
