Property code: 00362

With spectacular lakeside views, this charming timber cabin provides a peaceful escape from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Located on a 320-acre farm with woodland walks, open countryside and five fishing lakes fed by running water, this property is a wonderful choice for anglers, families and dogs alike. Explore this stunning stretch of coastline, which spans both Cornwall and Devon, before returning to this cosy lodge for a relaxing evening in front of the TV or on the sunny balcony.

Inside, this lakeside lodge is open plan, airy and spacious, with plenty of homely touches throughout. Prepare delicious family meals in the modern kitchen area, which offers ample storage and surface space, together with a breakfast bar for informal dining. At the end of a long day on foot, hunker down on the inviting L-shaped sofa and settle in for a relaxing evening of TV, games or reading with family. Perfect for couples or families, the two tastefully presented double bedrooms share a modern shower room complete with jet spray shower. Step outside through the double doors to enjoy a morning cup of coffee or evening glass of wine overlooking the lake.

A haven for anglers, this complex’s five lakes are well stocked with carp, roach, rudd, tench, bream and perch. After a busy morning spent on the lakeside, wander the ancient cobbled streets and pretty harbour of nearby Clovelly (2 miles), or set out along the South West Coast Path to discover this magnificent stretch of coastline with your canine companions. For beach lovers, nearby Bude (15 miles) and Westward Ho! (10.5 miles) do not disappoint, or for family days out The Big Sheep (8.5 miles) and The Milky Way (1.5 miles) provide hours of fun for all.

What a super place. The lodge was warm and clean and the fishing was great when the weather allowed. Over the good days I caught circa 20 carp (mirror and common) between 6.5 and 8.5lb and lost a couple of bigger ones. Well situated with lots of places to visit and eat.

The lodge was clean, warm and very comfortable. Everything worked as it should and the level of equipment was spot on. We were unlucky in that the weather was dreadful during our stay, so we didn't make much use of the outside areas. The fishing was a little slow for my liking, but the weather reduced the opportunity to try different lakes.

Everyone very friendly and Claire really nice. Already booked to go bRead moreack the same week to the same lodge in 2024. Not saying we might go back before then.

The site is great for a holiday or getaway to explore north Devon and South Cornwall. The lodges are comfortable, clean and well equipped. The surrounding site is beautiful and has areas for dog walking in the woods. The lakes are beautiful and make for good fishing with no fighting over swims as there are plenty. All in all perfect !
