We had a fantastic holiday at The Lodge and enjoyed the garden and amenities. The owners had left very thoughtful touches and the cleanliness and decor was excellent. A relaxing and lovely break.

Wow, a truly stunning property. A lot of love and thought has gone into making The Lodge a wonderful place to stay. Fantastic welcome treats for us on arrival, cream tea, milk, butter, orange juice, fresh and very yummy strawberries, a bottle of sparkling wine, and ice cream, and lovely flowers from the garden. The cottage was well furnished with everything we needed, and was lovely and clean. The garden was a great place to sit, soaking up the evening sunshine, and chilling with a glass of wine. It is also in a great location for visiting many places. We love walking, and were out each day. The walk from Morthoe to Morte Point is lovely, and the seals were out enjoying themselves. We saw about 11. Lynmouth to Watersmeet and up over Countisbury Hiil to the Blue Ball Inn, and back on the coast path to Lynmouth is stunning, as is The Hendon Valley. Walk Heddon Mouth beach, then the coast path all the way to Lee abbey beach. It’s very steep, but the views are amazing ( walk back the same way) Walking from Hartland Quay, dramatic coastline. There are many more places to walk and visit, just spoilt for choice. No time to watch TV, and not missed.

This fabulous, wonderful , cosy cottage for two cannot be bettered. Everything about it was perfect. We spent a week in very hot sun, relaxing in the stunning garden or cooling off in the thick walled cottage itself. In the evenings we visited a number of lovely, local places to eat. Not far from the sea and areas of natural beauty. Can’t wait to visit again.

Beautiful Cottage and gardens just like it looks in the photos. Everything was catered for with great quality facilities. Lovely touch by the owners leaving us a ‘welcome pack’. We would definitely stay in this property again.

This cottage is a joy set in a lovely garden which is fully enclosed and just perfect for our Cocker Spaniel. The unexpected welcome pack of scones, clotted cream, wine and ice cream amongst other goodies found in the kitchen was much appreciated. Spotlessly clean and with a good supply of quality china, glass etc. preparing meals in the kitchen area was easy with everything to hand. Whilst afterwards, a gentle stroll from the door to the local church with our old dog proved relaxing and peaceful especially returning to a glass of wine on the verandah with its view to the hills. What more could we want.
Our only negatives were the fact that live t.v. channels appear to be severely limited and the lack of a phone or mobile connection in the cottage did make contacting the owners very difficult when we had an early morning water leak - a walk up the hill to get reception was not funny. However they quickly fixed it as soon as they knew about it. They were also very helpful with local knowledge and advice. I would suggest you bring an insect repellant as the gnats and mosquitoes in the bedroom seem to appear from nowhere even when the door is closed.
Despite the negatives the cottage is so welcoming I would definitely like to stay again in the future.
