This property is part of our English Country Cottages collection

An inspiring collection of properties chosen for their character, luxury and heritage, all graded 4 star and above.


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.

    We've stayed at Little Dunley before and loved it! I would recommend you phone a few days before you are due to arrive, rather than leaving it until the day before, as we did - despite trying numerous times we couldn't get hold of anyone and the only way of getting into the cottage was to guess the code to the key safe! Unfortunately, we had a problem with flies when we arrived but after a phone call to the owner (whose mobile number was in the info pack inside the cottage!), it was sorted very quickly by the caretaker. As before, the children LOVED the very well kept swimming pool and games room (and the nearby House of Marbles!), and really enjoyed using the tennis court. We hope to be back, but would probably choose to stay in Oaktree Cottage instead, if possible.

    This lodge isn't really large enough for six people. The bunk room is barely large enough to get the bunk in. The living area was only just adequate for six people to be in. The provision of crockery, cutlery and glasses wasn't sufficient for six people - most people have more than one drink and one meal in a day, so exactly six large plates and six glasses isn't enough. Cooking equipment seemed a bit random and missing items such as baking trays too. The lodge is very close to other lodges and the fencing between the lodges is quite "industrial" in nature. We were fortunate in that most of the other lodges weren't occupied for most of the week but it was inevitably quite noisy when they were, and also meant we were conscious of not disturbing other guests. The pool was good, but it seemed a bit early to close it at 7pm (why so early?) and the rules for its use are quite restrictive. The games room was too hot to enjoy although was well equipped. Most disappointing was the wifi/internet provision. Whilst we accept that rural internet speeds can be low, the internet access was so slow as to be unusable. This would be bad enough, but to be charged an additional £20 for the privilege seems like rubbing salt into the wound. Not unreasonably, we expected that the £20 charge was to enable a decent connection to be provided. I'd recommend future guests not to use the provided wifi but to bring their own 4G wireless access point instead.

    Response on behalf of the owner; Thank you kindly for taking the time to review our property. We welcome all feedback be it positive or negative as it helps us improve our service for future guests. With regards to the crockery we have adhered to the specifications set out by cottages, but we can certainly look into this if you feel it isn’t adequate enough. We have reviewed our pool opening hours and have now extended them to 8pm. As you can appreciate we are extremely rural so the wi-fi is patchy, we completely understand your comments though so will no longer be charging for wi-fi usage. We hope this has answered any issues you have raised, and thank you again for your feedback.
