Property code: LYDLO

Open-plan log cabin sleeping two, located within the grounds of the owners’ house near to village of Lydford, with its three welcoming pubs and proximity to Dartmoor National Park.

Located just 14 miles from a Dartmoor National Park visitor centre in the grounds of the owner's house, Lydford Lodge is a pretty, open-plan log cabin that’s perfect for two. Cosy and comfortable with lots of countryside touches, this single-level lodge is ideal for those looking for a base to come back to after a long day of walking or hiking. Enjoy an al fresco meal on the BBQ on the outside patio, looking out across the spacious lawn garden and trees in the distance.

Whether you’re snuggled up in the lounge area, in front of the wood burner or cooking up a storm in the quaint but well-equipped kitchen, you’ll find it easy to embrace rural life here. Exposed beams and high apex ceilings make it bright and airy without losing its traditional charm, while co-ordinating fabrics and upholstery add to the country-cottage feel. Wake up in the screened-off bedroom area after a restful night’s sleep, then head to the lounge to admire the countryside views and plan the day ahead over your morning coffee.

Lydford Lodge is conveniently located off the A386, making it easy to get to nearby places such as Lydford Gorge (3 miles), that boasts a 30-metre waterfall and scenic walking routes, and Okehampton Castle (9 miles), that is steeped in history. Lydford itself is only 2 miles away and has three pubs to choose from for a quiet lunch or drink. Further afield, experience the bustling city streets of Plymouth (23 miles) where you’ll find a mix of new and old, including the Barbican and Sutton Harbour and Drake Circus Shopping Centre.

None at all. We have stayed here several times and always receive the same level of cleanliness, facilities and warm reception from the owners

Nice property. Not as secluded as we thought. Very dark inside but there are loads of windows!! Remember to shut curtains as you can be seen from the house gardens. But we did have a nice and pleasant stay. Would recommend this property.

We were a little unlucky with the timing of this holiday - Storm Dennis bringing a week of gales and flooding to this area, but this was such a peaceful, warm and pleasant cottage to come back to every day. The place is really cosy, everything is there you need but it has so much character and style. It is close to a main road making it easy to getRead more out and about but far enough away from it to be quiet and tranquil. We had a couple of young deer visit the garden several days as well!

We stayed for the first week of October 2019. It is a single storey open plan annexe in the grounds of a large house. Comfortable, homely and well equipped, nicely located for walking on Dartmoor. Lovely view over garden. Richard and Wendy the owners who live in the house, made us feel very welcome. Several good pubs within reasonable distance for Read moreevening meals. We would particularly recommend the Peter Tavy at Peter Tavy (especially if you like pies) and the Castle Inn in Lydford Hide

If you want peace and relaxation, then Lydford Lodge os the place. Conveniently situated between Okehampton and Tavistock with Dartmoor only a stone's throw away. The cottage is delightful with everything you need; the grounds are ideal for relaxing and last but no means least, David (our host) was a real gentleman - he was there but not intrusive.Read more Due to an illness, we did not meet Wendy but wish her a speedy recovery.
