    A super facility, although a little difficult to find, especially with our antiquated sat nav! Quiet, pleasant, but no on site shop. Local areabeautiful.

    Very nice spacious log cabin, a bit isolated but once stocked up on food and drink really comfortable.

    Very out of the way and the nearest shop is eight miles away. Only a very small decking area in very poor condition with lack of out door furniture.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the Owner; I'm sorry that you were disappointed with the location. The description does show that it is in a rural spot, and 6 miles from a large shop. Many of our guests enjoy the peace and tranquillity that this offers, and 'getting away from it all'. The local villages of Woolfardisworthy, Hartland and Bradworthy all have a variety of shops and there is a more comprehensive range of facilities being available at Bideford or Bude, a short drive away. Tesco and Sainsbury also deliver to the site so that's another option. I am surprised that you mentioned about the outdoor furniture as we have recently got a wooden furniture set there, and have been assured by the caretakers that it is there. Apparently there was panel that was loose on the decking and the caretaker has fixed that. It's a shame that the lodge wasn't what you were looking for in a holiday, but if you do ever way to stay again please do ask to get in touch with us directly.
