The lodge which is located on a small family run farm, is positioned close to Barnstaple - a great location for many of the local attractions. Exmoor is close by as is the famous National Trust property Arlington Court. There are many beaches to choose from within 15 minutes drive and for cyclists there is the Tarka Trail which takes you from Barnstaple to either Braunton or to Torrington and beyond.
We've had lots of self-catering holidays and used Owners Direct many times but never stayed in a lodge cabin before. We though it might be rather basic so were pleasantly surprised at the space, comfort and cosiness of this one.
All the essentials are there to a good standard and it was clean and tidy so we consider this place excellent value for money - we've had issues with more up market accommodation but no complaints at all this time.
The location is peaceful and convenient for both coast and countryside plus Barnstaple is only 10 minutes away. The views are slightly restricted by trees and hedges but no doubt these provide essential shelter in bad weather.
We didn't have (or need) much contact with the owners but they were friendly and helpful and we would certainly consider staying again and recommending the place to others.
