“Spotless Accomodation”
Reviewed 16 August 2014 for a stay in August 2014

The Lodge was perfect for our weeks stay. It was very comfortable, very well equiped and spotlessly clean. The service we recieved from Andrew and Carol was first class, they met us on arrival and were very helpfull if we needed anything during our stay. The location was excellent for walking on Dartmoor and surrounding areas or as a base for accessing the coast. Highly recomend this property. The pub in the village was very friendly and is only a short walk from the Lodge, had a great selection of food and drink.

“A peaceful recently refurbished cottage ideal for local walks, access to Dartmoor and further afield.”
Reviewed 1 August 2014 for a stay in May 2014

The Lodge is a recently refurbished outbuilding in the grounds of Bedford Cottage. As such, everything is modern, clean and in working order. The refurbishment has been very well done: the cottage is light, airy and spacious for two people with a large sitting room/kitchen area and a very pleasant double or twin bedroom with ensuite bathroom/toilet. There is also plenty of storage space for clothes, food and other necessities. Outside is a lovely garden. The property is in the middle of the picturesque village of Buckland Monachorum and within 2 minutes walk of the local pub that serves good ales and meals. We loved our stay in the comfortable little cottage for the peace and quiet but still close to lovely local country walks and access to Dartmoor and wider afield in Devon. The hosts, Carol and Andrew, were very friendly and helpful; nothing was too much trouble for them.

“Utterly Fantastic”
Reviewed 21 July 2014 for a stay in July 2014

A wonderfully brand new cottage with spotless kitchen and bathroom and wonderful modern facilities in an ideal location. Just a short drive from Dartmoor national park, Plymouth and lots of wonderful days out.
The cottage is incredibly cosy with a lovely garden area and patio, the surrounding area is really quiet with lots of lovely places to walk. It is more than relaxing to sit out on the patio for a few hours and take In the sun or have an evening meal, but if cooking isn't your thing then the local pub is a wonderful place to eat.
Andrew and Carol, the owners are very friendly and more than welcoming and were around and helpful right from the word go.
Would highly recommend this holiday to somebody looking for a relaxing retreat in a beautiful part of the country in a modern, yet homely cottage.

Thoroughly enjoyed the holiday and would definitely stay again and would recommend it to a friend!

“A perfect stay”
Reviewed 19 July 2014 for a stay in July 2014

My husband and I recently returned from a lovely holiday at The Lodge. Our hosts Andrew and Carol welcomed us when we arrived and were excellent hosts throughout our visit. The beautiful cottage was very comfortable and well equipped with everything needed to make a perfect stay. The cottage is situated in a quiet village but is close to several interesting places, some within walking distance. The week passed so quickly we would most certainly like to return and spend more time at The Lodge.

“Immaculate accomadation, great location, terrific owners”
Reviewed 18 July 2014 for a stay in July 2014

The Lodge was exactly as the gallery photos showed, and immaculate. Plenty of places to visit close by with. Dartmoor on your doorstep, so if you don't want to use the car and enjoy walking, no problem. The owners made us feel very welcome and although not intrusive, are available to advise on places of interest.
