About the Owner
We are a family of four who regularly visit Devon with friends and grandparents. We love the peace and quiet and being able to switch off from our busy jobs in education. Our children grew up paddling in the rock pools and walking the North Devon Coast.
Guestbook comments from the owner
Review 1 This was our second stay at the Devon Lodge. The owners personally supplied us with the lodge key and gave us a good briefing on the new facilities at the Lodge as well as information about local places to visit. We were supplied with clear written directions to the lodge via email. This was useful for two of the party that had not been there before
The accomodation is outstanding. There were six in our party but eight would have been no problem. A perfect television picture with free sat. There was also a video and DVD player - All easy to operate -
Washing up was no problem with a full size dishwasher.The kitchen was very well equipped.
Hot water always available at the flick of a switch. We very appreciated the fact that there were waste recycling facilities on the site.
There is a large deck/balcony with seating outside. Great for sitting down to read, playing cards or for meals in the fresh air.
The three bedrooms (one onsuite) are all very comfortable. Simply but tastefully decorated.
Off 'track' parking next to lodge.
We did some beautiful walks that included the South Coast path to Clovelly and the estury at appledore. My daughter and I hired bicycles at Barnstable and cycled 28 miles on the amazing Tarka trail - All off road.
There is a very useful folder at the lodge containg leaflets of the local attractions.
The lodge is in a very peaceful area. Lovely wildlife with the bats coming out at 830pm every day. Also plenty of sightings of Geese and many other birds.
There is nothing to dislike about the Devon Lodge. It is set in a tranquil location but you do not have to travel far for great places to visit. A welcome place to come back to after a long day out. We hope to return soon.
Review 2 We returned this Summer to the Devon lodge. The weather forecast was not good but turned out to be wrong. We were on the beach most days until the evening, the children were body boarding and rockpooling and kite flying. We spent our time at Duckpool, Sandymouth, Croyde and Bude. Fantastic week, would highly recommend. Didn't spend too much time in the Lodge as we were out each day but the accommodation is of very high standard, it was very comfortable, clean and very well equipped for eating in and maps, games, etc.
Review 3 The Devon Lodge is ideally situation for exploring the North Devon/Cornwall coast. There are many beaches and attractions nearby. The Milky Way is a brilliant day out if you have children and we would recommend Docton Mill for a fantastic cream tea
