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.

Lovely location providing easy access around Dartmoor. Perfectly peaceful, warm and comfy. Good off road parking making it very safe. Muddy boot cleaning equipment provided at front door was an excellent idea and useful.

Lydford Lodge was really warm and comfortable. We had a very wet week but were able to get our clothes and waterproofs dry ready for the next wetting! The kitchen area is well equipped and there is masses of crockery in the sideboard. The bed is very comfortable. On a dull day it is quite dark inside the Lodge - it could do with some brighter and bRead moreetter positioned lighting. It is lovely and quiet - we saw deer and rabbits in the evening and heard cuckoos during the day. Hide

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.
