Property code: 92384

Return to nature in this off-grid, beautifully designed pod in the Devonshire countryside. Located in a peaceful lakeside setting, this romantic stay for two humans and two pups is a perfect retreat for those seeking tranquillity. Return from rural walks to the bubbling hot tub and soak those aches away.

Step inside this quirky glamping pod, where you’ll notice every comfort has been considered and every need tended to. As you drop down your bags, put the kettle on and make yourselves at home in the studio-style open-plan layout. Despite its compact design, this wonderful holiday home provides all the mod cons needed for a stress-free stay, including a Smart TV, a fridge, a microwave and a hot tub overlooking lovely lakeside landscapes. Whip up tasty meals for you and your happy hounds, and dine outside or in. Alternatively, if you don’t feel like cooking, there is a highly rated pub/restaurant on-site to treat yourselves to a delicious meal without the cleanup. When it’s time to turn in, sink into the king-size bed after a long day of exploring.

There’s every reason not to venture far at all, but should you decide to, plenty will keep you occupied throughout the day. Right from your doorstep, make the 2-mile journey to the market town of Okehampton to pick up cooking supplies and, perhaps, some specialist equipment for walking, cycling or climbing. Use these newly gained tools to explore Dartmoor National Park, which provides an extensive network of scenic trails for all skill levels. The pod is cleverly located close to the A30, which gives you easy access to the city of Exeter (26 miles), Lydford Gorge (7 miles) and Adventure Okehampton (2.5 miles).

The place is lovely, set in a lovely area. The pod was clean, cosy and bright. Was a short drive to the town and was great to walk straight into the Moors. The hosts were welcoming and friendly. I would recommend staying here.

An absolutely amazing place, the cabin is cute and comfortable. It is in a very quiet area and has some lovely surrounding walks. There isnt too much around so if youre looking for a relaxing few days away from the world it is perfection. I wouldnt recommend the on site pub for more than a drink or two but the bakery in town is beautiful. Would defRead moreinitely visit again! Hide

Had a very comfortable stay. Other cabins closer than i expected, yet, it felt very private. Very clever layout of the whole lodge. Excellent modern mod coms, however, being older, i couldnt really fathom the hob or diswasher. Also, no idea what the black box under telly was for. But thats just me and my age. Otherwise, it was exactly what i neededRead more. Thank you. Hide

We were disappointed with our stay at Elder Lodge. The photos and description are misleading. The lodge is lovely and clean, but the location is right by a noisy motorway, on a smelly farm and is surrounded by lots of other lodges, so it doesn't feel private or peaceful. It was advertised as dog friendly, but it is very inconvenient for anyone stayRead moreing with dogs, as they have a strict dogs on lead policy. They also didn't provide any info on local walks/pubs or how to work heating etc. Hide
