Snaffles Lodge is a unique Scandinavian-style property on the edge of east Devon’s Blackdown Hills, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. This comfortable detached lodge has a fully enclosed garden, a wonderful hot tub and a verandah for evening drinks. There is even a bridleway literally on the doorstep – it is your access to the lodge and its parking-area – so you can set off for a lovely country walk to the nearby village of Kentisbeare without going on any main roads. There you will find a friendly local pub and a village shop.
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 from this easy to reach location.
Back to the lodge – the open plan living-room is comfortable, light and spacious, and the choice of bedrooms, one with a king-size bed and en suite shower-room, and the other with twin beds, 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 and the all important hot tub.
The lodge is close to the owners’ farmstead and racehorse stables, but with the separate access down the tiny lane and fencing between the lodge and the stables, it feels nice and private.
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.
