This pretty property nestles in a peaceful spot on the owner’s small family run egg farm and boasts a delightful enclosed decked veranda. Recently completed it’s been lovingly furnished to provide a relaxed retreat for couples and small families alike.

Escape to Devon and embrace the slow pace of life at this welcoming lodge which sits on an egg farm. With chickens for neighbours, enjoy your rural location close to the Devon/Cornwall border and Roadford Lake – perfect for avid walkers and families with a love of the great outdoors. After days in the fresh air, throw open the French doors and indulge in a cosy film night.

Boasting charm and character, this lodge has an open-plan living space perfect for keeping each other company and for enjoying quality time together. Comfortable sofas sit around the smart TV so you can settle down for lazy mornings and relaxing evenings and put on a family favourite. Make the most of the ice compartment in the fridge and chill drinks to sip alfresco on the decked veranda which is enclosed so younger guests can play safely. After a tipple or two, rustle up sides in the kitchen and sizzle up the BBQ on the lawn for summer feasts on balmy evenings. Head into the grounds for a post-dinner wander and stroll past the lake to collect fresh eggs from the friendly owners. A pair of inviting bedrooms await weary heads and prepare you for tomorrow’s adventures.

Explore the sand, sea and surf and make the 15.5-mile trip to Bude where pups are welcomed and you can tuck into traditional fish and chips. Venture 25.5 miles to Hartland, which boasts dramatic landscapes with the tumbling falls of Speke’s Mill Mouth carving its way through rugged cliffs onto the beach. For a day inland, make a splash at nearby Roadford Lake (7 miles) where you can enjoy a waterside walk or try your hand at sailing.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

We had a very lovely and relaxing stay at Sparrows Rest. Darren and Joy were very welcoming and helpful hosts. The lodge was very well equipped, clean and comfortable, and we were welcomed with delicious wine, biscuits, and fresh eggs from their farm. Lovely sitting out on the decked veranda. Set in a very lovely and convenient location, with plentRead morey of areas to visit around Devon and Cornwall. We throughly enjoyed our visits to Port Isaac, Clovelly, St. Nectans Glen and Sandymouth Beach. Hide

A newly built log cabin, in a rural setting, separate from the farm. Quiet and dark at night which we loved, very peaceful and private and there is plenty of outdoor space for children to play. This is a great central location in which to explore the Devon and Cornwall coast e.g Clovelly, Sandymouth Bay ,with the Eden project being an hour away. DaRead morerren and Joy were both very welcoming, friendly and helpful. We enjoyed learning about their free range hens and eating their delicious eggs. Hide
