Property code: OAKVI

Beautiful lakeside log cabin situated just one mile from the town of South Molton and just four miles from the edge of Exmoor National Park.

Wake up waterside at this cosy lodge, which is the perfect base for a North Devon escape. Surrounded by countryside and with an on-site three-acre lake, you’ll feel a million miles away from everyday life here, although if you wish to venture into a town, South Molton is close by. At the end of a busy day of either exploring or relaxing (or a bit of both) unwind on the decked terrace to the front of the property, glass of wine in hand, taking in the incredible views.

With views across the lake through the large windows, you’ll feel right on the water inside the lodge. It’s bright and airy throughout with an open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner, although fire up the wood burner and it becomes a cosy haven, perfect for a romantic evening in. Before you retire to the cosy sofas in the lounge area though, enjoy a BBQ on the terrace as the sun sets. The property is neutrally and tastefully decorated throughout, providing a real home away from home aesthetic that’ll be hard to say goodbye to.

If you can tear yourself away from the complex, you have both the coast and countryside waiting to be explored. Exmoor National Park (5 miles) is a haven for keen walkers, with a plethora of scenic routes taking you through wonderful flora and fauna. If you like to be beside the seaside, discover the string of sandy beaches on Devon’s north coast, including Saunton (20 miles), Westward Ho! (21.5 miles), and Woolacombe (27.5 miles), where you can enjoy a delicious curry on the beach in summer months.

Oak View is a lovely property in a beautiful, tranquil setting and we really enjoyed our stay. The property is spacious and well equipped including thoughtful touches like the sun loungers.

A lovely log cabin on the exterior but like a high quality bungalow inside. From Oak View you can look at the carp pond from the large windows or from the decking. Decking around the back too, so you can catch the sun all day if required. Very comfortable from the two 2 seater sofas, to the large bedroom and the bathroom with a large bath and separRead moreate shower cubicle. Also plenty of hot water at all times. Bring some wild bird food or peanuts for the birds and squirrels. Highly recommended! Hide

We spent one week in the Oak View cottage with our 20 months old daughter. We really enjoyed our stay there. We liked to go for a walk every day around lakes and beautiful garden. We spent very nice day in Westward Ho. It is nice town with beach, see pool and good restaurant Pier House. It is only 35 minutes from cottage. Owners are very helpful anRead mored friendly. We would recommend this beautiful place and go back one day. Hide

We had an excellent stay at Oak View. The lodge was better than the pictures and the surroundings are a real bonus, a real peaceful paradise! We met the owners on arrival and were really reassured by the cleaning measures in place given the current circumstances. South Moulton is a good place to use as a base to explore Devon. The only disappointmeRead morent was the lack of pubs serving food in the town - none! The owner did recommend three pubs serving food at nearby villages, all really good. Hide

The holiday cottage overall is a great place, the facilities are excellent. We found the bed slightly less firm than we are used to but other than that we had a great week away.
