Great place to go
Really clean and staff went above and beyond to provide a personal service in line with the COVID guidelines. However the appliances were a little outdated

Lodge with our lab!
We stayed for 5 nights as were looking at N. Devon and potential properties to buy. The resort was in a great location with lovely views and we (inc our dog) enjoyed staying in a lodge for the first time. The accommodation was okay with lots of hot water (too hot at times) and heating (towel rail didn’t work) but needs modernising ( inc internet access) which we were told is going to happen. The restaurant was good and the staff v. friendly and helpful. However, the website needs updating as we managed to be double booked for the week before and also we were expecting a sea view which was a bit disappointing. All in all a nice trip though.
