Step into the cosy open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner where you will find a well-equipped kitchen with electric oven and hob, microwave, fridge with ice box and a dishwasher. The lounge provides the perfect place to relax and snuggle up in front of the TV. A door from the kitchen leads to the double bedroom an en-suite shower room with WC.

Our cabin was more spacious than we expected it to be, clean and comfortable and in a lovely peaceful location. Very dog friendly with a handy gate on the verandah. We enjoyed the fishing and visiting Clovelly and some of the local gardens. The Beach at Instow was lovely for a paddle.

This was our first time here and certainly won't be the last. It was a great place to explore the area from and even though my husband didn't catch many fish he wasn't put off by it..as he said thats how it goes. It was comfortable and quiet and we had a really relaxing week her. Looking forward to going back again in the near future

Lodge was shabby rotten handrails on decking. No lake views felt claustrophobic and dark in the corner surrounded by trees and bushes. Shower was faulty. Towels smelled unclean like wet dogs. Lounge heating did not work. Poor fishing experience. Would not recommend. Will not stay again.

A lovely, comfortable and clean lodge in pleasant surroundings, well equipped with many thoughtful touches like throw blankets and cushions, seats in the shower and seats on the verandah plus a barbecue. If you like fishing - with five fishing lakes, it's a great holiday and also convenient for visiting Hartland Quay, Clovelly, Bucks Mills and HartRead moreland Point. If you have kids you might like The Big Sheep or the Milky Way. Also not too far from Westward Ho or Bideford. Hide
