This couple’s hideaway with a hot tub is the ideal place to relax and recharge in the Devon countryside, designed for a stress-free break and only 3 miles from the cathedral city of Exeter. Enjoy city days out or unwind amongst the peace and quiet of the serene farmland during your next break.

Enjoy open-plan living in this contemporary timber lodge, with a lounge/kitchen/diner that has loads of light and gorgeous rural views. Enter via the terraced deck and you’ll find the compact kitchen tucked to one side, with a fridge, microwave and hob. After eating, relax on the comfortable sofa and enjoy a choice of programmes on the Smart TV. When it’s time to turn in for the night, your double bedroom and en-suite shower room are at the back of the lodge. On warm evenings, you’ll want to spend all your time on the terrace, either watching the sun set from your glorious covered hot tub or dining under the stars while planning your next day’s adventures.

Combine a break in the country with a visit to the city, and pop over to Exeter for its bars, restaurants and shops, not forgetting the historic cathedral and the fascinating underground passageways, originally designed to bring clean drinking water from natural springs outside the walled city. Visit the National Trust’s Killerton House and Garden, 4 miles, or the port of Topsham, 6.5 miles, with its beautiful architecture and variety of shops and places to eat. Darts Farm, 8 miles, sells a range of West Country produce, while Powderham Castle, 11 miles, is a majestic stately home.

I really enjoyed my stay over Christmas and will definitely want to return when in need of some quiet and relaxation. My only tips for other guests is to bring your own towels if you're staying more than a few days and a drying rack as there isn't one provided. It's useful to bring a slow cooker and/or an air fryer depending on what you will be eatRead moreing whilst there. If you're fussy about pillows, bring yours from home and your favourite cosy blanket too for extra comfort in the evenings. Hide

This was a beautiful place to stay with great views and a good place to chill after being out. Bed was comfortable and hot tub is a nice touch after walking each day. Very clean surroundings and nice visits from the squirrels, and deer outside. If I was to put a very small negative comment is the two seater sofa was uncomfortable. It didnt matter tRead morehat much as we were out all day and only sat for a few hours in the evening. Worth a stay and we were happy with overall. Thanks from Paul & Sue. Hide

Lovely little cabin with stunning views. So quiet and peaceful. Great for a nice peaceful or romantic get away. Loved the hot tub. Spent most evening in there. Quite a tough walk to get to and from the car park, as its a stoney steep path.

There was 2 things that come to mind whilst staying, number 1- somewhere to store clothes in the bedroom like a small dresser. Number 2- there's a small gap underneath where the kettle is for a clothes horse that would definitely come in handy to air out towels and bathing costumes. It's an amazing location would love to come back again in the futuRead morere. Thanks Rebecca and Tom Davis. Hide

Overall a nice little get away despite the weather. The sofa is uncomfortable. Towels provided very small would be nice to have some larger ones. Best to bring your own. Very happy with how clean it was including the hot tub. No oven but good idea to bring an air fryer if wanting to make meals. Host very friendly and excellent communication.

Beautiful secluded location, with amazing views. The owners were helpful when we had an issue with the TV, and sorted it straight away. Only issue was the parking, as it was quite a way from the lodge, otherwise all perfect

We had a lovely stay at Balmoral Lodge, the countryside views surrounding the accommodation was stunning, beautiful sunset views over the hills, we seen quite a few wildlife approach our lodge while sitting there some mornings & early evenings, hot tub was lovely made good use of early morning dips and evenings relaxing. Also FREE WiFi, FREE NETFLIRead moreX was a bonus. Only negatives were no oven, so we brought our own air fryer with us & we was able to make full meals that way. Sofa uncomfortable. Hide

My wife and I stayed in Balmoral Lodge from 22 Oct - 27 Oct. The lodge is gorgeous and everything in it is in keeping with the environment you are in, decor wise. It was spotlessly clean, tidy and very well designed and in a lovely location. Close enough to all amenities and attractions but far enough away to be isolated at the retreat that the lodRead morege is. We literally couldnt fault it unless a 150 metre walk to the car park, from the lodge bothers you. We cant wait to return soon. Hide
