A fabulous place to stay.

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic time staying at Heath Lodge, it is a beautiful place in a lovely location.

Easy access to all local amenities with amazing views to just relax and watch the world go by.

The care and attention to detail that Patricia and John have put into the property and give to you as guests is second to none.

We thoroughly enjoyed our time in Brixham and are definitely looking to return next year.

Can this be bettered ?

  • 5 of 5

Before we arrived at Heath Lodge we couldn't believe our luck ! Firstly, what strikes you is the cleanliness - it even smells clean !! But the tasteful furnishings and quality of everything in the house is wonderful. Often when we book a home for our holiday we find that , how can we say, that the house has been 'used' but this is not the case at Heath Lodge. Great attention has been shown in all areas here. What you cannot prepare for however are the fantastic views from the house. Absolutely amazing ! At night too the lights across the bay are stunning !

Heath Lodge benefits from safe parking and the town, harbour, ferries are really not far to walk to.

Lastly but not least, John and Trish are lovely. Nothing too much trouble and they leave a few treats. Yummy !! Can't wait to go back. Might even book today.

A great location with outstanding views and a base that enables both adventure and relaxation. A great find and I know that whoever reads this review and books will enjoy the hospitality of the hosts and the stunning views of the bay.

A great week in August irrespective of the weather.

We could not have ask for more during our stay at Heath Lodge. It was exactly what we were looking for. The lodge is immaculate, perfect location, fantastic views and lovely owners. Patricia & John made us very welcome and could not do enough for us during our stay.

Luxury accommodation with delightful views

  • 5 of 5

We've recently returned from a lovely weeks stay at Heath Lodge. The photos do not do the property justice and the views are spectacular. The delicious welcome treats were a lovely gesture from the owners, Trish & John who are very lucky to live in the property next door.
