Snaffles Lodge is a bespoke, larch-framed single-storey building on the edge of east Devon’s Blackdown Hills, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The famous market town of Honiton – a thriving place to visit for cafes and antiques shops – and the glorious beaches of east Devon and the Jurassic Coast are a short drive away. The open plan living-room is comfortable, light and spacious, and the choice of bedrooms ensures this accommodation is very flexible. Outside, enjoy al fresco dining on the wide verandah, which overlooks the private garden and adjoining paddock and has steps down to the secluded patio – where you will find a fabulous hot tub. The completely enclosed garden is perfect for children and dogs.
The lodge is close to the Owners’ farmstead and racehorse stables, but has separate access down a tiny lane and feels very private. There is a country footpath literally on the doorstep, offering a peaceful route to the popular village of Kentisbeare with its friendly local pub and shop. Easy access from the M5 means that you can get to the Cathedral City of Exeter in no time at all. The east Devon coast has a string of gorgeous seaside towns and fishing villages – Budleigh Salterton, Sidmouth, Branscombe and Beer for example. Just over the border into Dorset is Lyme Regis with the famous Cobb Harbour – well worth a visit.
