Tasteful New England style lodge located on a working smallholding close to the village of Clovelly, and near to the North Devon coast.

This property is one of two holiday cottages on the owner’s smallholding close to the pretty village of Clovelly. Clovelly is a wonderful place to while away a day, and with its traffic-free cobbled streets, feels like a peaceful step back in time. There are guided tours of the village available, as well as the chance to visit the Fisherman’s Cottage museum and take part in pottery and craft workshops. A range of boat trips are offered from the village’s harbour, and visitors can also buy daily fishing permits. A short drive to the south, the Cornish town of Bude is a popular place for seaside lovers, with its choice of beaches, and traditional seaside facilities including a tidal pool. And don't forget to visit the beautiful gardens of RHS Rosemoor altogether making this a great location for exploring both Devon and Cornwall.

This wooden lodge-style property is tastefully decorated in an understated style, which makes it a perfect place to enjoy a relaxed holiday. The main living area is the spacious lounge diner, which has French doors leading to the property’s decked area. The comfortable seating in this room allows guests to relax and unwind whilst enjoying the TV and DVD. The well-equipped kitchen has everything that guests will need, including an electric oven and hob, microwave, fridge with ice compartment, washing machine and dishwasher. The property’s two bedrooms are also located on the ground floor. The main bedroom is a tranquil and relaxing double, whilst the second bedroom is an equally tasteful and understated twin room. The bathroom benefits from an elegant roll-top bath and a separate shower cubicle and WC.

Outside, the detached lodge sits in its own grounds with a large lawn perfect for the pups or children to play in while you watch from the decked area with seating and a BBQ. Guests are also more than welcome to explore the smallholding and may enjoy meeting and helping to feed the animals, which include goats, chickens, turkeys, and geese.

The lodge also has ample private and gated parking.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

Beautiful lodge with a large secure garden which our dog Betty loved. Phillip and Angela our hosts were lovely as were the welcome gifts especially the delicious chocolate cake. It was a great base from which to explore this beautiful part of Devon and over the border in to Cornwall

We spent a lovely, relaxing week here and really enjoyed the large enclosed garden. It is in a beautiful, quiet location. We saw lots of interesting wildlife: deer, barn owls (next door!) and, at the coast, seals. There are lots of places to visit locally, Hartland Point, Sandymouth Bay and Tamar Lakes were all good. The lodge itself was well-equipRead moreped and we really appreciated the welcome pack, as well as being left with other basics (milk, toiletries etc.) - very thoughtful. We may return! Hide

If youre looking for the prime rural location, a getaway from it all but with the benefit of having ocean and the lush country either side; this place is for you! The cottage was a place that we all felt like we were going home to after our fun packed days out (mostly in the Atlantic). We can heartily recommend Sandymouth beach if you have a dog (oRead morer even if you dont). Cottage is easy to find if you ignore your sat nav and listen to Angela! Thank you for a wonderful week.
