Very beautiful location with a splendid view; we were searching for a quiet place. This is it. The lodge had enough room to live for two weeks. Everything we needed was there. Andrew and Sally gave a warm welcome en were very helpfull. Sadly it rained the first week; so we made many trips to Cornwall, Clovelly, Tintagel, Eden project...

Management response:

Thanks very much for that informative review Jan & Cora, I'm sure others will find that useful - really glad you enjoyed your stay here!

About the neighbourhood
Highampton is a small village with a pub, village hall, school and visiting post office, Hatherleigh and Holsworthy are larger and have all the amenities you need.

Our particular little area used to be a farm and we currently have horses in the fields. In the early morning it is quite possible that you will see deer grazing. There are usually a lot of rabbits around, and foxes pay the occasional visit. Birdlife is plentiful, including woodpeckers, tree creepers and buzzards. We have a huge number of different birds and butterflies that visit us.
Getting around
You do need a car to get around but it's quiet and you rarely get held up even in Summer. We're nicely placed to access Cornwall and all parts of Devon.
