This bright and sunny lodge is situated in a quiet and picturesque valley just a mile from the award winning Bantham beach. With a wooden platform in the garden originally built for yoga exercise but suitable for sunbathing or just a quiet place to chill out surrounded by beautiful countryside, its the perfect retreat for couples, or a small family looking for a relaxed getaway near the sea.
Max 4 people!
This property is a unique little haven tucked in a picturesque Devon valley or combe, a mile from the sea. It has a quirky shabby chique interior with an open plan living space, breakfast bar and balcony overlooking the valley. Its beautiful setting and location make it a perfect place to retreat to. It is located in a valley with a handful of other holiday cottages nearby and in sight, though its elevated place on the hill means it is quiet and feels private. There are gorgeous country walks leading from the property and a 30 minute walk to the famous, award winning Bantham Beach. Guests book repeatedly each year for its charm and location.
The bedroom has its own balcony doors opening onto the valley and a skylight overhead for stargazing from bed. The living room has a pull out sofa bed for 2 people expanding the capacity to 4 people staying, though please note that the space is best suited for couples. The lodge is light and airy during the summer with lots of wild birds.
There is also a lovely stray black and white cat, Miss Frieda Meow, who comes and goes over the year, who makes her home at the lodge for some of the time. She may or may not be there when you visit. She is to stay outdoors, although she loves a cuddle and feed if you like cats!
There is plenty of heating (electric heaters) and the lodge stays very warm, even in winter it is snug, cosy and warm!
If you are looking for a simple and quiet retreat the lodge has everything you need. There are all the basics: oven, fridge, cooker, wifi, shower, etc. Please note that it doesn't have the following: there is no washing machine and there is little phone reception because of where we are in the valley. If you walk up the hill a short way you can get full connectivity.
There are village shops and excellent pubs in Thurlestone (1.5m), Bantham (0.9m) and Churchstow (2m) and Kingsbridge (4m) offers a supermarket, banks, numerous shops, cafes, galleries, and a regular farmers market.
Surf rentals can be found in Churchstow or on Bantham beach.
