The decking leads around to the front door and into the open plan living accommodation with vaulted ceiling and French doors opening onto the terrace. A dining table seats four and the lounge has two comfortable sofas and an armchair. There is a wall mounted television and a contemporary flame effect wall mounted electric fire. Wi Fi is available. The kitchen is enclosed by a breakfast bar with inset hob and electric fan oven. two stools to the bar make this a sociable area from which to watch the chef at work.

One with double bed and the other with twin single beds. From the main bedroom is the en suite shower room with washbasin and toilet and alongside a second door leads into the walk in wardrobe. The main bathroom has a bath, toilet and washbasin. There are large mirrors in both bedrooms and bathrooms.

It makes a perfect base from which to acquaint yourself with the area. whether walking, sailing, climbing or window shopping, Everything that you could possibly want can be found within a twenty mile radius of Devon Hills. The two nearest cities of Plymouth and Exeter both offer different interests with Plymouth having the famous Barbican and Exeter with its cathedral and canals. The National park of Dartmoor is nearby with its notorious ten tors and Dartmoor ponies and the South Hams boasts unspoilt hamlets and villages such as the village of Stoke Gabriel with its Mill pond, Slapton sands and the adjacent beaches and the sailing centre of salcombe. There is so much to see and so many beautiful places to enjoy whatever the weather. For the children you are just two miles from Paignton zoo and the beaches and pier.

About Colleen Goode

We are a mature couple who spend much of the time in Spain enabling us to rent out our lodge for others to enjoy.

Colleen Goode purchased this mobile home in 2013

Why Colleen Goode chose Torbay

We chose to site our lodge on this particular pitch due to its south facing aspect and open surroundings. We are not directly overlooked by other lodges and have very little passing traffic thus making your stay a peaceful one.

Trees and shrubs nearby bring many different birds and wild animals and a woodpecker is a regular visitor.

What makes this mobile home unique

Devon hills boasts a five star rating having an indoor pool and a first class gym. The price of your stay includes family membership to the leisure centre for the duration of your stay.

We have an individual parking space alongside the property.

Beautifully furnished modern lodge within easy reach of many attractions within the Torbay area.

  • 5 of 5

A family with a 9 year old. The property was spotless and modern. The location was perfect. Paignton is down the road, Torquay, Brixham,Totnes,Dartmouth and Babbacombe all within easy reach to name but a few places. We had a week here and loved it. It was not long enough to explore everywhere. A good excuse to come back! Thank you.

Great Lodge to stay.

  • 5 of 5

We were highly delighted with our stay at Devon Hills. The site was very well looked after gardens, etc. The Lodge was far more than we expected and was very well furnished to a high standard. We will certainly be back for another visit. Good cental base to explore that side of Devon too.

Relaxing lodge

  • 4 of 5

The lodge was luxurious and spotlessly clean.

There were just a few little issues why I haven't marked this as 5 stars.

My friend and I stayed and were only supplied with one bath towel and hand towel each and as we paid the full price I feel the full compliment of towels should gave been left - and bath sheets would be far better. I did ask the lady who had just cleaned the lodge if we could have more towels but was told no as there were only two of us.

We are not "a couple" but friends using both the double and single bedrooms and our own bathrooms. The same there, only one toilet roll left.

Also, no proper bin in the kitchen which I thought was strange.

Only little things but it didn't add up to the full luxury which we have come to expect after staying in similar accommodation.

I hope this will be construed as constructive criticism.

Activity and Interests

Nearest Airport : Exeter at 30 Miles Nearest Barpub : The Blagdon Inn at 200 Metres Nearest Ferry : Kingswear to Dartmouth. at 8 Miles Nearest Golf : Churston Golf club at 3 Miles Nearest Train : Totnes at 3.5 Miles Nearest Motorway : M5 Exeter at 20 Miles Nearest Restaurant : The Blagdon Inn at 200 Metres Nearest Beach : Paignton at 2.5 Miles Car: not necessary

In the surrounding area many activities can be enjoyed such as fishing at the nearby trout farm, Golf at Dartmouth, Churston or Dainton and cycling on the numerous cycle paths that have been created throughout south Devon.

Visit the historical fishing town of Brixham and take a ferry across to Torquay or around the coast to Dartmouth for a pleasant day out or maybe you would prefer to travel by steam train. The Kingswear to Dartmouth line and Buckfast to Totnes are both very popular and are a must for every railway enthusiast. At Buckfast is the butterfly and otter sanctuary as well as the beautiful abbey.

Stoke Gabriel is eight minutes away and is renowned for crab fisjing in the millpool and the weir. Canoes can also be hired here for a trip along the river. For a river trip of a different kind you can take the ferry from Dartmouth up to Totnes and then catch the open top bus to return to the lodge.

The National Trust properties of Coleton Fishacre, Agatha Christies Greenway home, Compton castle and Bradley manor are all just a few miles away.

The nature reserve at Berry Head in Brixham has amazing views across the bay and the working lighthouse and old fortifications are of great interest. There is a good café on the head which is a welcome bonus for refuelling after your costal walk.

Dartington Hall with the amphitheatre and gardens make a very pleasant excursion and the many towns such as Totnes, Newton Abbot, Torquay, Dartmouth and Ashburton all offer a wide selection of individual shops.
