Orchard Lodge is a wooden luxury cabin which sleeps 6 in four bedrooms. It sits in a secluded, peaceful and private fully-enclosed grassed area where your dog may roam free. There is a covered veranda with table and chairs. There are rural views from all the windows. It is furnished to a high standard. It has a fully-equipped kitchen with ceramic hob and fan oven, microwave, fridge-freezer, washing machine and dishwasher. It has central heating, television and wifi broadband. All linen and bedding is provided.
Our four-star traditional barn conversion & two Scandinavian lodges are situated in 17 acres of quiet, unspoilt countryside with picturesque lake where our visitors are free to roam and enjoy a gentler pace of life. There is a feeling of seclusion, yet the cottages are central for all kinds of activities in Devon and Somerset. Above the cottages is “Chimney Down”, a beautiful stretch of open common land, ideal for dog walking, with spectacular panoramic views across Exmoor to the north and Dartmoor to the west.
Tod and Heather Bainbridge have lived here for over thirty years and have been running Quarry Hockford Cottages for ten years.
We started with the Cider Barn and added Orchard Lodge eight years ago and Lakeside this year (2014).
Tod Bainbridge purchased this chalet in 1980
When our children were young the property and the area provided good riding and plenty of room for the horses. Now we just enjoy the peace and tranquillity and the feeling of remoteness while still having good access and easy communications.
Rural seclusion and tranquility . Stunning Exmoor National Park a few minutes away. Good communication links.
