Lakeside House is to the right of these stunning new build holiday properties. Each has its own fully enclosed garden to ensure privacy.
The kitchen at Lakeside House is exactly the same as this one, taken in Lakeview House. The properties are mirror images of each other.
Another glimpse from Lakeview House, of exactly what your living/dining room will be like.
There is a little lodge by the lake for guests to enjoy.
This special setting has several other lovely lakes - you are welcome to book fishing on these but your own lake is well stocked for you.
East Devon has some wonderful beaches - this is sandy Exmouth - stretching all along the World Heritage Jurassic Coast.
This is the coastline from the iconic Golden Cap landmark just over the border into Dorset.
Lyme Regis is a must for a day out. Great for all the family.

Nearest walk

Cullompton Walk (2 ½ miles)

A walk around the Cullompton area of over five and a half miles using tracks, paths and lanes. Most areas will be dry but watch out for Goblin Lane which may be muddy after wet weather. You will need GPS to follow the directions on the Web site.

Nearest town

Ottery St Mary (6 ¼ miles)

One of the oldest towns in Devon, Ottery St Mary pre-dates the Domesday Book by some margin. Nestling in the Otter Valley, Devon’s rolling countryside spreads in every direction. Just a few miles to the south are the beaches of the south coast, perfect for days out. Ottery St Mary has a number of mystifying annual celebrations that are always great fun to witness: Tar Barrel Rolling in November (the barrels are on fire!), the spectacular carnival and Pixie Day, when local bellringers are taken captive by ‘pixies’, with a fete, live entertainment and a fireworks display.

Great Food - reasonably priced

We visited this pub twice during our stay at Snaffles Lodge. Both times we ate from the new summer menu. All the food was very good and well presented. We had for starters the scallops, the octopus and the duck - all yummy. And mains we went for the steak, the veggie noodles, the chicken Caesar salad , the Parmesan chicken and not forgetting the fish and chips. All were just perfect, if this is a temporary menu whist they attract new owners, then I can’t wait to go back and try the full one later. Highly recommended

Knightshayes Court (8 ¾ miles)

A wonderful Gothic pile with stunning formal gardens and beautiful interiors. The walled garden provides produce for the Stables restaurant where you can watch the gardeners at work or explore the woodland walks.

Free parking and walk for dog

We couldn't go in as we had the dog with us, but the car park was free and there's a nice woodland walk off the car park where dogs can walk off the lead. Nice setting and surrounding countryside.

Stunning

One of the best national trust properties we've ever been to, something for all ages. The gardens are fantastic and offer both formal and woodland styles. Well worth a visit!

Beautiful gardens!

The gardens are the jewel of this property, with many different areas; woodland, formal garden, meadow, parkland and a stunning restored kitchen garden which provides produce for the lovely stables restaurant. Highly recommended and really easy access from the M5.

One of the finest surviving Gothic Revival houses, this rare example of the work of eccentric architect William Burges has extraordinary medieval romantic interiors. The beautiful garden includes a kitchen garden.

Good National Trust property

Interesting house and gardens, even kept the kids going for two hours.

Killerton House and Gardens (5 ½ miles)

A fine example of 18th Century architecture, Killerton House is home to a vast collection of period costumes - 9,000 items in all - spanning the fashions of the past 200 years. The gardens are the star of the show at Killerton. Beautiful all year round, they put on a wonderful display of rhododendrons and magnolias, set against the backdrop of Devon's rolling countryside. Open-air theatre is hosted here during the summer.

One of Devon's great estates, Killerton was given to the National Trust by Sir Richard Acland. The famous garden was created by John Veitch and is beautiful all year round.

Very impressive

As my partner is a pilot it was inevitable we would need to visit the airfield.... usually these places are quite basic and food is obligatory greasy spoon type fare....but not here in Dunkeswell! Very impressed and very helpful staff. Food great and very reasonably priced too and dogs are welcome. The location of the outdoor seating also means you get an excellent view of aircraft both landing, taking off and parking up....

Flaming Tar Barrels (6 ¼ miles)

17 wooden barrels are coated in tar, set alight and carted shoulder-high through the streets of the town. Yes, on fire. It’s been a tradition since 1605-ish and probably started to brace the town for the imminent invasion of the Spanish Armada.

Amazing!

This really is a spectacular event. The atmosphere is electric as locals hurtle through the streets with the flaming barrels hoisted onto their backs. Thousands of people come to witness the tradition each year - if you don't like crowds, then this is probably not the event for you, but you can take refuge by the huge bonfire, which has to be one of the largest and most impressive in the South West, if not the country.
