This very rural lodge has all the amenities of home. The site has a very peaceful feel to it & you can hear the water of the Teign, when the veranda doors are open. The beds & sofas are extremely comfortable (full size as apposed to 'caravan' size) so if the weather is inclement, you can relax in comfort until the sun shines.
The neighbours are friendly, but they don't encroach on your privacy, thanks to green space & strategically planted trees. The site is beautifully kept & is green both in colour & in nature (caring for the planet).
We had a hiccup with the boiler (thanks to thunder storm), but it was sorted both efficiently & in a cheerful manner by the owner. The aftercare emails were also appreciated.
The lodge is a short journey through single width, Devon lanes (with passing places, so be prepared to reverse) from Cheriton Bishop where you will find a shop & post office & I heartily recommend Woodleigh Coach Guest House cafe for breakfasts, lunches & their homemade cakes (best Bakewell tart I've ever eaten!) It has friendly staff & they welcome dogs with bonios & a fenced, green space.
Moreton Hampstead is a quaint market town with supermarket & a superb butcher & deli - So if your off to the moor for the day, you can pick up the picnic enroute (the deli chocolate brownies are good too).
Fingle Bridge is close by & here you can sit by the river enjoying lunch or a cuppa. There are loop walks for you & possibly your furry friend & the hairy one can take a dip in the water if they so wish.
To conclude, I would recommend this lodge to people who love wildlife (We saw Bullfinches & Deer in the quiet lanes, Yellow Wagtails at Fingle Bridge & Ponies, Cattle, Highland Cattle & Sheep on the moor) & to those who understand that the pace of life is slower (my average speed was 8 mph in the lanes) & who realise they may meet a tractor around the next bend.
All in all, thank you for fab memories of a girlie break with my Mum😁!
