Nearest beach

Sidmouth Town Beach (13 miles)

This is a wide sandy and shingle beach with good access and parking nearby. Jacobs Ladder leads down to the beach from Connaught Gardens, a lovely place to take in the view. A great family beach, you'll find lots of facilities and cafes nearby. Dogs are allowed year round at the easterly end of the beach.

Nearest walk

Cullompton Walk (2 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 (7 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.

Also nearby

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 ¼ 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.

A really nice place for children to visit, very hands on. Visitors can try on Civil War armour, see the medieval loos, learn about the 900 years of history, the ghosts, secret passages; beautiful garden. Very moderate admission prices, and excellent value for money. Free visitor parking inside.
