Description

With peaceful walks nearby and lovely patio with BBQ, guests here at Vine Lodge can truly make the most of good weather.

Situated on the edge of the Dartmoor Wildlife Trust Nature Reserve and within 24 acres of tranquil meadowland, Little Dunley Cottages have been carefully restored and finished to a very high standard. Pristine and tastefully furnished they enjoy pleasant views overlooking the lakes and surrounding countryside. Each of the properties has its own private outdoor secluded seating area and are ideal for family gatherings, celebrating a birthday or anniversary or for those who wish to escape and unwind on a holiday in a truly magical place. Guests can enjoy carp fishing within the grounds, as well as an indoor heated swimming pool, all-weather hard tennis court and games room. Just a few miles off the Devon Expressway, the holiday cottages are well situated for all attractions such as sandy beaches at Teignmouth, Dawlish and Sidmouth, and tourist attractions. A haven for birdwatchers, and walkers will enjoy the many stunning walks in the area. Pretty Bovey Tracey, one mile, with its numerous shops, pubs and cafes, is known as the ‘Gateway to Dartmoor’, which has one of the best known national parks, offers stunning scenery to ride, walk and fish in. There are a variety of golf clubs nearby. The locality offers a hugely varied range of walks, through woodland, along the coast or nearby on Dartmoor. Dartmoor has so much to offer from its heather-clad tors to dramatic landscapes, Dartmoor ponies, to quaint villages offering Devon cream teas. For a family day out take a trip to Crealy, or spend a day in Exeter, visit the magnificent cathedral, shops, take a look around the quay where there are little caves turned into shops, or walk the canal path and find the hidden pubs only reached by foot. Torquay offers boat trips from the harbour over to Brixham, or visit Living Coasts where penguins wander freely. Further afield visit the Eden Project or Plymouth to take in the Barbican and the Hoe, or visit the huge aquarium, another great day out. Agatha Christie’s house at Greenway is a must for fans of crime novels. There are many National Trust properties all close to Little Dunley, also visit Dart Valley Steam Train, or Buckfastleigh and see the otters. There are many sandy beaches nearby, or spend a day at Lyme Regis fossil hunting. The Jurassic Coast is spectacular and it is well worth taking a walk on the coastal path. Shop 1 mile.

This ‘upside-down’ house has been tastefully converted and furnished to a good standard. Three bedrooms; one double, one twin and one bunk. Bathroom and toilet. Shower room and toilet. Stairs to first floor: Spacious contemporary open-plan living/dining room with wood-burning stove, vaulted ceiling with exposed roof trusses, and bespoke pine fitted kitchen.

    The reason I have not given 9/10 is that the games room was so hot (no opening windows) it was impossible to stay in there (it was a hot week) so with 2 teenagers to entertain this was disappointing. Also we chose this cottage as it had a fishing lake but it needs some TLC as the water levels were low and a lot of weed. Lovely pool and tennis court and cottage was very well equipped

    First stay in a cottage, so this was a new experience to us. Cottage is located down a private lane which leads to a gated area with four other similar cottages. The security of the place allowed the kids to be allowed freedom and we sometimes didn't even lock the front door. The accommodation is an upside down place, with one spacious double size bedroom, 1 twin bed bedroom, 1 bunk-bed bedroom and two toilets downstairs and large spacious kitchen dinner upstairs. The accommodation shares a lovely swimming pool which as a hit with the kids and communal games room. The grounds also have a tennis court and lake with fishing.

    This is an "upsidedown" lodge - kitchen/lounge upstairs, and bedrooms and bathrooms downstairs. This visit (our second) my husband and I found it very tiring climbing up and down stairs whenever we needed the bathroom or to get something from our room. That said, the games room was great. Early morning swim in decent sized pool, games of pool with grandchildren, and the odd game of table tennis were ideal. Only gripes were that there was no heating when we arrived and lodge had obviously been empty for some time. However, this was remedied fairly quickly. And there seemed to be a dearth of lighting - no spare bulbs were included. For a "fit" family of six there would be no problem. If decided to stay at this venue again would go for standard living downstairs, bedrooms upstairs cottage. Perhaps a warning on description of this property re the stairs and mobility would be good. We did enjoy our stay.
