About Caroline Montague

We are an outgoing and friendly couple who really enjoy letting our lodge to different people. Our aim is to make our guests happy and ensure that they have a relaxing and memorable holiday.

Caroline Montague purchased this cabin in 2011

Why Caroline Montague chose South Hams

It is in an unbeatable location: Peaceful and quiet, near pretty thatched villages and 10 minutes drive from the picturesque market town of Kingsbridge. It overlooks Bantham and Bigbury sandy beaches, with a direct view of Burgh Island. Sometimes you can see what is reputed to be the world's only working sea tractor transporting people from Bigbury to the island. The art deco hotel on Burgh Island is often featured on travel programmes. Noel Coward and Agatha Christie have both stayed at the hotel, and one of Christie's Hercule Poirot movies was filmed there. The A38 and railway station are only 30 minutes drive away. Dartmoor is half an hour's drive. Beautiful Salcombe takes 20 minutes in the car and Dartmouth only 40 minutes. Plymouth city is 45 minutes away. What more can you ask for?

What makes this cabin unique

It is close to Kingsbridge, and has magnificent sea views, superb sandy beaches, fabulous walks and beautiful sunsets. Private, off road parking is available next to the Lodge.It is an easy walk to the local pub, The Sloop, which has excellent food.The Lodge is even organically varnished inside. It is totally safe from floods. Herons Lodge is very well insulated, so it is guaranteed to be cosy and warm all year round.The location has everything going for it. Come and see for yourselves!

Comfortable, peaceful retreat with superb view.

  • 5 of 5

Friendly and informative greeting by hosts to clean and straightforward chalet. Perched atop the hillside, the view of the sea and Burgh Island is wonderful. Spacious, private decking and inside light and welcoming. Perfect base to explore so many local treasures the area has to offer.

Peace & quiet at last.

  • 5 of 5

When arriving you would never even know that the lodge existed, (to be honest, I was a little concerned) but after being shown there I couldn't believe it.

There are fantastic views over Burgh Island, (I think that's its name) and such an easy walk to the beach and the local pub serves amazing food which is around 1/4 mile away.

I visited in March 2017 & the weather was not as good as I could imagine it would be in the summer but it was so warm in there I would recommend this place for any time of the year.

Cosy, comfortable apartment for two with a beautiful view.

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is warm and comfortable with everything you need for a peaceful stay in this lovely location. There is a comfortable bed and a well equipped kitchen .

The eating space is a little cramped but there is a lovely terrace which would be ideal for outdoor living in the summer. The parking space is adequate. A wifi connection would be an improvement (although the wired connection which is available with a deposit works well) as would the provision of towels. The owners are charming and communication before our stay was very straightforward.
