Lakeview House is a stunning holiday property in east Devon, inland from the World Heritage Jurassic Coast from Budleigh Salterton and Sidmouth in east Devon through to Lyme Regis in Dorset. With lake views, of course, use of a 2.5 acre lake stocked with carp, a wonderful private hot tub, large enclosed garden and with fantastic accommodation over three floors, this is a holiday property for all the family.
Semi-detached Lakeview House has its sociable living accommodation and smart contemporary kitchen on the ground floor with direct access to the patio and enclosed garden. Three of the four bedrooms are on the first floor, the en suite master bedroom and one of the double bedrooms with amazing panoramic views, and the fourth bedroom and snug with a further TV, DVDs, Nintendo Wii and other games for children are on the second floor. Guests at Lakeview House and Lakeside House have sole use of the well-stocked carp fishing lake - a lovely place just to picnic by and to sit with a book.
You can also book use of the other fishing lakes by contacting Lakeside View Fisheries if you wish but your very own lake is home to approximately 150 carp, all over 18lbs. The only time this lake is out of action is when the fish are spawning. You will then have free use of the other lakes, subject to a place being available. The usual rules for fishing apply.
Book together with Lakeside House (4075) for a wonderful multi-generational family holiday.
This part of east Devon is so easy to reach from both the M5 and the A303/A30. The market town of Honiton is a treasure trove of antiques shops and a short drive beyond it is the spectacular Jurassic Coast with all its little seaside towns and fishing villages for days out.
Lyme Regis sits on the east Devon and Dorset border and has a wonderful sandy beach for children as does Exmouth. In between are some delightfully unspoilt places such as Beer, Branscombe, Sidmouth and Budleigh Salterton.
The Blackdown Hills are just a few miles away and Woodbury Common, close to the coast, is criss-crossed with trails for mountain bikes and walkers with the sea in the distance.
The Cathedral City of Exeter has all the culture, shopping and restaurants that you might want but of course east Devon's villages are home to some excellent country pubs.
As if all these facilities were not enough, the owners also provide a Tassimo Happy Coffee machine and an electric mini-oven providing extra cooking facilities, and a full range of baby-friendly equipment over and above a travel cot, high chair and stair-gate. You will have use of bouncy chairs, play mats, a food blender, bottle warmer, steriliser, toilet seat and step, dining-room booster seat, bed guards and even a pushchair. All you need to pack are your suitcases and yourselves!
You can order up a takeaway and the owners will deliver to your doorstep. Everything is planned to give you the best and most relaxing stay possible whether you are a family of different ages or a group of friends.

Lakeview House is a stunning, contemporary, home in an exceptional lakeside setting. It has a huge fully enclosed garden, hot tub and path to the lake.
This is the view from your hot tub!
Lakeview House is the left of these two wonderfully high quality holiday homes.
Lakeview House has an amazing spacious modern kitchen with breakfast bar, an electric mini-oven for additional cooking power and a Tassimo Happy Coffee machine for that all important morning coffee.
The kitchen looks out across fields at the back of the house and over the garden and lakes to the front.
The very large sitting/dining-room with French doors to the patio, garden and lake beyond. The garden is fully fenced. The hot tub is just around to the right-hand side.
Another view of the sitting-room where there is comfortable seating for all.
Lakeview House and Lakeside House are semi-detached. There are privacy glass panels close to the house and then fencing between the two gardens.
There is a really large patio and French windows from the sitting-room as well as a sliding door from the kitchen.
This is the master bedroom on the first floor.
The room is exceptionally light and has a stunning high ceiling.
The fabulous super size window means that you can sit in bed with the most incredible unspoilt views in front of you.
The master bedroom has a really large walk-in shower in its en suite shower-room.
This is the double bedroom on the first floor. Again this room has the most wonderful views.
This is the twin bedroom - also on the first floor
The first floor family bathroom has a large walk-in shower as well as a bath.
This double bedroom is on the second floor. There is a very convenient cloakroom on the second floor too.
Last but not least - on the second floor - there is even this wonderful play-room equipped with TV, games and toys for children.
This is the totally unique setting for Lakeview House. Incredible views from the house, in a lovely rural setting.
A little (child-proof) garden gate takes you to the lake which is reserved for the enjoyment of guests at Lakeview and Lakeside only.
This photo shows you more of the wider setting. The lake in the foreground is one of the other fishing lakes at this beautiful location.
Lyme Regis is right on the east Devon and Dorset border. Perfect for a family day out.
