One of only 3 properties located within the grounds of the owners own home and with shared use of covered and heated swimming pool.  An ideal location for getting away from the hustle and bustle of ordinary life.  This beautiful area of Devon is known as ‘Ruby Country’ and offers wooded trails, footpaths, bridleways and cycle paths, giving you the opportunity to explore and enjoy the tranquility and the diverse nature of this special part of Devon.

This detached lodge offers a very comfortable open plan living space great for ensuring no one is left out when preparing meals in the well equipped kitchen. A small woodburner is ideal for those chilly evenings out of season and is surrounded by two comfy sofas. The main bedroom offers a kingsize bed and large windows to enjoy views out over the owners small orchard.  A glazed door leads from this bedroom onto a large fully enclosed decked area ideal for alfresco dining or just relaxing at the end of a busy day.  Three bedrooms with some flexible sleeping make this a great property for couples, friends or families to enjoy a lovely rural retreat.  Just a mile along country lanes from the village of Sheepwash with its famous Fishermans Inn serving good food and only 5 miles to the small market town of Hatherleigh.  There are plenty of other attractions just a short drive away including Okehampton Castle, Lydford Gorge, RHS Garden Rosemoor and of course the magnificent coastline of both North Devon and Cornwall with dramatic cliffs, picturesque coves and glorious sandy surfing beaches are only 20 miles away.

Great lodge for a lovely family holiday. Spotlessly clean, very comfy throughout including beds & pillows and a lovely welcome gift. The pool was fantastic and used everyday. A very peaceful location with lovely cycling and walking routes from the lodge. Also a local friendly pub just an easy 1 mile walk away down a lane. Also a vineyard and local Gin supplier in close proximity. A great base for exploring this area of Devon and Cornwall, with Bude only 30 mins drive away. We would love to stay again and recommend.

Mrs G,

Firstly, Sarah our host was very welcoming and nothing was too much trouble. The Lodge itself was everything you could wish for on holiday. I have no hesitation in recommending this property to future holidaymakers.

Mr W,
