  • This stunning lakeside lodge offers the perfect romantic rural retreat set in beautiful gardens
  • One mile from the busy market town of South Molton and its range of shops, pubs and restaurants
  • Close to Exmoor National Park where wonderful walks and breath-taking scenery can be discovered

 

Property code: OAKVI

Wake up waterside at this cosy lodge, which is the perfect base for a North Devon escape. Surrounded by countryside and with an on-site three-acre lake, you’ll feel a million miles away from everyday life here, although if you wish to venture into a town, South Molton is close by. At the end of a busy day of either exploring or relaxing (or a bit of both) unwind on the decked terrace to the front of the property, glass of wine in hand, taking in the incredible views.

With views across the lake through the large windows, you’ll feel right on the water inside the lodge. It’s bright and airy throughout with an open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner, although fire up the wood burner and it becomes a cosy haven, perfect for a romantic evening in. Before you retire to the cosy sofas in the lounge area though, enjoy a BBQ on the terrace as the sun sets. The property is neutrally and tastefully decorated throughout, providing a real home away from home aesthetic that’ll be hard to say goodbye to.

If you can tear yourself away from the complex, you have both the coast and countryside waiting to be explored. Exmoor National Park (5 miles) is a haven for keen walkers, with a plethora of scenic routes taking you through wonderful flora and fauna. If you like to be beside the seaside, discover the string of sandy beaches on Devon’s north coast, including Saunton (20 miles), Westward Ho! (21.5 miles), and Woolacombe (27.5 miles), where you can enjoy a delicious curry on the beach in summer months.

  • 1 Double bedroom
  • 1 en-suite bathroom with bath, separate shower cubicle and WC

Oak View is a delightful lodge overlooking a beautiful fishing lake. The setting is very peaceful and the vast grounds are well worth exploring. It is cosy and warm even without lighting the log burner. Everything we needed was available and Sainsburys was only a short walk away for provisions. The owner and his son are very friendly and helpful ifRead more you need anything. We've stayed twice so far this year and will be back again. We recommended it to friends who also stayed and loved it. Hide
