About the property

Luxury Lodge With Hot Tub In A Quiet Convenient Location, 2 Bedroom 2 Bathroom

Luxury Spacious (double width) modern, detached, substantial timber lodge, with 2 good size bedrooms / 2 bathrooms, with a Private Hot Tub on decking (£100 per week supplement for use November to March). Allocated parking directly outside the lodge. On site there is a large heated indoor pool, health club, wifi & even a 15th century thatched pub, The Blagdon Inn, (great food).

The Site is central for all the attractions of Torbay with its beaches & so many places of interest to explore, something for all ages. We are also close to Dartmoor with its wonderful scenery & walking. This is surely one of the best locations in South devon and lies between Totnes & Paignton. The site is wonderfully maintained & laid out, quiet & peaceful, not too big, a great place for a relaxing break, we think one of the best sites in South Devon.

The lodge has a quiet, open location with large, elevated decking getting the sun most of the day with views to the countryside beyond. The hot tub is on the decking close to the lounge area for easy access . Please note there is a short flight of steps to the main entry.

The lodge is furnished to a high standard with a double bedroom with its own en-suite bathroom & TV / DVD, there is a large second bedroom with twin beds & a further complete shower room / toilet. Both bedrooms have plenty of storage.

The lounge area has ample seating with a 42” flat screen TV giving all the available “Freeview” channels & a Sky digibox (free channels only). There is a DVD player, with a selection of DVDs, books & games in the lodge. The kitchen is fully equipped with a dishwasher, washing machine, full size oven & hob, microwave, fridge / freezer, etc.

The lodge has full central heating for the cooler months and being very modern, is well insulated / double glazed, etc. There is a feature fire place in the lounge area with additional “booster” heating & flame effect.

Why Gaby and Geoff Dunnell chose Torbay

One of the best locations on the site which is itself one of the best in the Torbay area. The location is in wonderful Devon country side but only a mile or 2 from all the attractions of the Torbay area & Dartmoor.

What makes this bungalow unique

Detached, with Hot Tub & first class facilities.

Beautiful lodge, perfect family location.

  • 5 of 5

The lodge is amazing! Spacious & clean & fantastic views over the site. We really enjoyed using the hot tub too. The pool is a stones throw away & was never too busy & you have use of the sauna & the steam room. The Blagdon Inn serves tasty food with theme nights throughout the week & staff were very polite & friendly. We enjoyed days out in Paignton, Torquay, Preston, Babbacombe, the cliff railway is a must & takes you down to a beach, look out for the seal on the rocks! We took a trip to Kents Cavern too. The lodge owners were easily contactable & Gaby replied to my e mails quickly. We would definitely stay here again!

Great Location, Quite Holiday Village, Lovely Lodge

  • 5 of 5

Has everything you need. In a great location, short drive to everywhere, beach, shops, zoo, towns, on a quite well kept holiday village, the lodge is lovely, sun all day and evening, really enjoyed our sunny breakfasts on the deck and watching the sun go down while in the hot tub. Great communication from owners. We really enjoyed our stay and hopefully will rebook for a return visit, definitely on my list of recommended accommodation.

Excellent holiday accommodation

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from a fabulous holiday at Devon Hills. The description of the lodge and pictures are accurate and we weren't disappointed. Everything you need for a comfortable stay is there. It was clean and well maintained and wouldn't hesitate to rebook another time. We had a couple of small queries and Gaby replied straight away. All in all we couldn't fault it. We had fabulous weather but even if the weather hadn't have been so good the lodge was very comfortable to sit in!

Excellent lodge

  • 5 of 5

Listing is accurate and the lodge had everything that you would expect in the way of crockery, cutlery etc .Dishwasher and washing machine both useful (remember to take tablets/powder). Large fridge/freezer.

Both bathrooms were splendid with great showers.

Site is very pleasant and this lodge has to occupy one of the best positions on it as it is raised up and therefore not looked down into. Very clean and well-maintained. Hot tub is an added bonus and we thoroughly enjoyed the very quiet swimming pool. Blagdon Inn was a pleasant place to eat - check out their specials nights which are much cheaper than the ordinary menu - eg. Wednesday was Carvery night for £5 each.

Geoff & Gaby responded promptly to our emails and we wouldn't hesitate to return or recommend to others.

Supermarket (Asda) was 4 minutes away in the car and had everything that we needed.

All you need for a holiday

  • 5 of 5

Stayed at the lodge for 1 week, it offers all you require for a Base to day trips.

The lodge itself was a great space, we had 3 adults and a baby, everything was very clean when we arrived, also fresh clean towels.

Great Hot Tub which we enjoyed on return from a days sight seeing.

Lots of different supermarkets close by , so once we did our shopping it was like home from home.

We were out everyday to different places, great weather and we knew at the end of the day we had a great, relaxing place to go back too.

I would highly recommend this lodge to anyone.

Excellent location

  • 5 of 5

The property itself was exactly as described. Spacious and well equipped. It's position on the site couldn't be better, not overlooked and good views. The decking area is perfect for Al fresco breakfasts, although, owing to typical July weather, we were only able to enjoy this on the final day! The hot tub was a bonus in the cooler evenings. The site itself is very quiet. From our experience there were usually very few people in the pool, even at peak hours. The local pub is very well maintained with a good food selection. The site is well positioned for exploring the surrounding area. If we go back to Torbay in the future we would certainly stay in this property. Finally a note re the owners who were extremely easy to deal with, promptly answering all emails, and even phoning where necessary to assist communication.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your great review & so glad it was as expected, shame the weather was not so kind but at least the tub was hot!. The pool never seems to be crowded & as you say the pub is a real bonus. We look forward to welcoming you back to Devon Hills, it was a pleasure having you to stay. Kind regards Gaby & Geoff
