Description

Relax in the private hot tub and sauna at this beautifully appointed property which lies in a designated AONB, close to Branscombe beach.

Situated only 2½ miles from Branscombe beach, in a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and on the Jurassic Coast, this beautifully appointed property makes the perfect holiday home for all seasons. It is an ideal base to explore the spectacular scenery of the World Heritage coastline. The picturesque fishing port of Beer is close at hand where motorboat hire or mackerel fishing trips can be arranged, and it also offers good shops and restaurants. Sidmouth, Seaton and Lyme Regis are all within 10 miles. Nestling on the south-facing aspect of a tranquil wooded valley, the panoramic views from the lodge are magnificent, giving year round appeal. Converted from a flint barn and farm outbuildings this detached holiday home provides comfortable and spacious accommodation with classic rural character. A large sauna (eight persons) and fitness room has been installed. Outside the paved terrace provides an excellent vantage point to observe the valley’s wildlife. A relaxing plunge in the hot tub can be enjoyed at any time, especially at night for star gazing. The lodge is a starting point for a variety of country walks. Blackbury Camp, an iron-age fort, can be visited on the way down to the sea. The coastal path will take visitors through spectacular scenery, much of which is managed by the Natural Trust. Alternatively a trip on the old electric tram railway departs from nearby Colyton, along the Axe estuary marshes to Seaton to enjoy the traditional seaside atmosphere. Lyme Regis offers an interesting variety of shops, restaurants and inns around its famous harbour, The Cobb. The regional capital and cathedral city of Exeter is about a 40-minute drive. Shop 2 miles.

    We are a group of 10 friends in our 30s (ish!) who go away for a weekend every Spring. We always go to a property in the South West and this is one of the best properties we have ever stayed in! The house was cosy & comfortable - the perfect size for us. Although the kitchen is relatively small for the size of the property, it's very well equipped and the dining room had plenty of space to manoeuvre. The views over the rolling Devon hills are super relaxing, as are the hot tub and sauna. The internet connection is pretty rubbish - but we don't go on a rural holiday to use the internet! Nigel also warned us in advance that this was the case. The Sky box and TV meant that we could enjoy the 6 Nations Rugby and that's all that we needed :) The underfloor heating was an absolute treat in a chilly March, the showers & bathrooms all clean, and the beds comfortable. Thank you for a lovely stay.

    Great house, perfect for a big group. Parking information needs to be clearer.

    Overpriced, and although in a nice location the amenities are tired. wifi is very poor, we took 3 teenagers with us so you can imagine how that felt! Strange noises, which we assumed came from heating but not sure, between 2am and 4am each night woke us all up. Sofas are tired and need replacing. Hot tub okay. Definately not value for money.

    We absolutely loved our time at Stockham Lodge, lovely house and grounds, amazing views, friendly owners and a hop skip and a jump away from the sea but without being too close. (2 miles) We would definitely go there again given the chance.

    Beautiful large and clean home, lovely owners. Location perfect, close to lots of fun days out for our young children. Lovely big gardens, the kids loved blackberry picking. We saw lots of wildlife! Beautiful cream tea was left for our arrival, delicious & very much appreciated. We forgot a safety gate for our two year old and Nigel the owner had one in the house already so saved the day! Couldn’t fault at all, would love to return. Thank you for having us!

    Our three families were really impressed with the size and amenities supplied with the property, and feel that the photographs on the website do not do it justice. The owners could not have been more helpful, and were always on hand to answer any queries. They made the whole stay much more enjoyable as they provided lots of advice and information on things to do and places to go. The cream tea on arrival was very much appreciated.

    The location of the cottage was however very handy for exploring Seaton. Beer, Sidmouth, Exmouth and Exeter and it was well equipped with crockery and cutlery although the kitchen is very small if you wanted to cook a meal for 10 people. We ate our evening meals at local restaurants so did not attempt to cook anything. The cottage details state that the nearest beach is 2 1/2 miles away but there is no footpath to it and the drive to it is down very narrow roads and is more than 3 miles away. The details also state that there are TVs in all the bedrooms but apart from the lounge that has Sky, the TVs do not work as they do not have aerial leads and so TV can not be accessed. We were told that the TV signal is very bad in the area.

    Had an absolutely fantastic time at Stockholm lodge. Lovely cottage for a group of people. The owner was very welcoming and the lodge beautifully done out. The hot tub and sauna were an added bonus. The views are beautiful to look out onto, perfect for a relaxing break. If there wasn’t only one slight negative would be the beds. They are not the comfiest, but the surroundings definately make up for it. Would defiantly visit again.

    Barn conversion completed 8 years ago and might have got 5 stars then but is now in need of some TLC.Doors and window frames need attention and kitchen very tired. The mattresses are cheap (silent night monterey £100) and very uncomfortable definitely not what you expect for 5star accommodation and the double mattress downstairs was impossible to sleep on with a big mound down the middle. Very large bedrooms but no furniture, no wardrobe or hanging space, no mirrors. TVs in all bedrooms are just ornaments as don't have aerial leads as there is no signal. SkyTV works downstairs and there is internet but usual rural problems which can't be helped. Take slippers as no shoe policy in barn and polished stairs are very slippery and floors cold.

    We had a lovely Easter weekend at Stockham Lodge the rooms are all very comfortable all with en suite which was great as we were 2 families and mother. The views are breathtaking and so peaceful we didn’t need to worry about the children with noise playing in the garden. The hot tub and sauna were an added bonus after a long walk.
