  • This stunning lakeside lodge offers the perfect rural retreat set in beautiful gardens which guests are free to explore
  • One mile from the busy market town of South Molton and its range of shops, pubs and restaurants and within easy reach of the sandy beaches of Saunton, Croyde and Woolacombe
Property code: ISLVI

The perfect family lodge-style property located on the site of a stunning lake and just one mile from the Devonshire town of South Molton and within easy reach of the range of sandy beaches North Devon has to offer.

With wooded countryside surrounding it, this property a great rural escape for small families. It’s set away from the main farmhouse on the south side of the lake, carefully positioned to ensure privacy. Here you get the best of both worlds, with a quiet and rural setting that offers true peace and serenity, but with the market town of South Molton just 1 mile away.

 

The lodge-style property is accessed via three external steps, with the rooms all on a single storey. There’s an open-plan living area with plenty of space for a family of four; at night, it’s a cosy hideaway with a roaring stainless steel wood burner, great for those cooler evenings. The rooms have a light and airy feel, with wooden floors, archways leading from the living space, and neutral decor throughout.

 

Head into South Molton and explore the tempting chocolate factory or Quince Honey Farm - both great family trips, with the latter housing a cafe and children’s soft play area. Further afield, Exmoor National Park (5.5 miles) offers scenic walks and cycle ways which lead ‘over the border’ to neighbouring Somerset’s coastline. North Devon is home to an abundance of sandy beaches though, with Westward Ho! (21.5 miles) and Saunton (20 miles) just two that are within easy reach.

 

 

  • 2 bedrooms - 1 king-size and 1 twin
  • Bathroom with shower over bath and WC
  • Small ornamental lake with lakeside garden and woodland garden in owner’s grounds which guests are free to explore

We enjoyed our stay and the property surroundings are stunning. Only minor point was we felt the cleaning could of been better. It looked like the bathrooms had only been wiped down rather than properly cleaned. We cleaned them ourselves to be sure. Kids enjoyed the gardens and it was very private. Overall, we were very pleased with our stay.

We were extremely impressed with not only the level of equipment and furnishings, but also the quality. Everything one would need for your stay was present and the setting was idyllic. Located in a beautiful private lakeside surrounded by stunning gardens, the lodge was a lovely place to relax and wind down, but also conveniently situated for easy Read moreaccess to the N Devon towns of Ifracombe, Woolacombe, Lynton, Lynmouth - slightly further afield to Boscastle/Tintagel. Would definitely book again. Hide

This is our fourth visit to the cottages. Island View is clean and comfortable and offered us everything we needed. The gardens and lakes are absolutely beautiful and we thoroughly enjoyed walking around exploring and looking out for wildlife. The photos dont do the gardens justice. You have to see it for yourself.
