This detached lodge is located within the grounds of the owner's own home and offers a wonderful country retreat. The pretty village of Sheepwash with its famous 'Fishermans' Inn is less than a mile along narrow country lanes and the further amenities of the small market towns of Holsworthy and Hatherleigh are both only a 15 minutes’ drive. The surrounding area is known as ' Ruby Country' and is officially recognized as 'an area of pure tranquility'.  Wooded trails, bridleways, footpaths and cycle tracks abound and the Tamar Lakes offer excellent coarse fishing, sailing dinghies, rowing boats, wind surfers and canoes for hire, as well as being a haven for bird watchers who can observe wildfowl from hides provided. The lodge is one of only three properties (two for couples only) within the grounds and guests are free to enjoy a covered heated swimming pool, and a wildlife pond within an enclosed meadow. This is a great place to relax and get away from the hustle and bustle of life.   

The Lodge is accessed by a private pathway and a small decked area where glazed doors lead into a well laid out open plan living, dining and kitchen area.  The cosy living space has two comfy settees and an armchair centered around a small wood-burner that together with the central heating provides all year round warmth. A well equipped kitchen/diner provides facilities for preparing meals for family and friends with seating around a breakfast bar. The main bedroom is spacious and has floor to ceiling windows to enjoy the views out over the orchard with a glazed door giving access to a large decked area with garden furniture.  This is a perfect place to enjoy alfresco dining, a refreshing evening drink or just relaxing after a swim. Two further single bedrooms(one with a pull out single bed for alternative sleeping) mean that this is ideal for couples, families or friends. A spacious family bathroom completes the accommodation.

With historic market towns, pretty villages, a wealth of wonderful walks and fishing close by as well as easy access to the sandy beaches and rugged coastline along the North Devon and Cornish coasts. The Lodge is in a great location to explore this richly diverse area of the West Country.

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,
