  • This stunning lakeside lodge offers the perfect romantic rural retreat set in beautiful gardens where you can get a away from it all
  • 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: LAKVI

A picturesque mile from the heart of South Molton in the North Devon countryside, this lodge-style property offers peace and tranquillity in abundance, while still being close to amenities. You’ll find the lodge nestled alongside idyllic lakes, giving direct access to incredible sunset walks and picnic spots.

Arranged on a single storey, the property offers attractive accommodation that’s perfect for two and has been finished with contemporary styling. The living area is open-plan and spacious, with the incredible lake view from the window being the main feature. Comfortable chairs and the sofa are arranged to face the window, so you can enjoy the scenery while curled up with a good book or enjoying your morning coffee. Of course, you could enjoy this on your private seating area, which you’ll find through the king-sized bedroom’s patio doors.

In South Molton, you’ll find everything you need, from a supermarket, pubs and restaurants, to a weekly market and independent shops. The larger market town of Barnstaple is within easy reach (12 miles), with several popular eateries and bars, making it a great choice for a night out. To enjoy the best of the countryside though, head to Exmoor National Park (5.5 miles) and enjoy the scenic walking routes. And of course, no visit to Devon is complete without a beach trip; discover the sandy beaches of Saunton Sands (20 miles) and Croyde (23 miles).

Its a very nice cottage with a friendly host who lives next door. Its a bit of a walk from the parking lot so ensure you are mobile. Their is a trolley provided for luggage but it is old and very rickety. If you are looking for peace and quiet then this place will certainly provide that and the views and walks are amazing.

The gardens next to the cottage are just wonderful; such a mixture of flowering plants and shrubs. Wild areas and woodland. When I walked around lots of insects and birds to see, including humming bird hawkmoths in search of nectar.. In the garden next to the cottage is a bird feeder, so many House Sparrows and others. Martin kindly fetched us someRead more kindling so we could light the wood burner on cool the evenings . We just turned the thermostat down. Dark skies - could see stars on clear nights. Hide

Lake View is a truly wonderful place to stay - perhaps a mention that if you are not truly mobile there is a stony path to the cottage and a distance for your luggage but a trolley is provided. There is no mention just how wonderful the gardens are and a perfect place to wander if you are using a disability scooter. Perhaps this is a secret to be kRead moreept and to give guests a wonderful surprise on arrival. Make sure your fingers are strong when you need to flush the toilet. Take binoculars. Hide

We stayed at Lake View in February, with very cold nights, so perhaps didn't see it at it's best and certainly didn't explore the lakes. However, we thoroughly enjoyed our 3 nights and found it very comfortable. If we were to break our rule of never returning to the same place again, then Lake View might just be the place!

This cottage is set in a beautiful location with a view out over the well maintained grounds and carp lakes and is well placed for exploring North Devon and Exmoor. This was our second visit as we loved it the first time five years ago, but the access road is in need of repair and gives a poor first impression.
