Guest Comments

The Lodge is very contemporary with stylish furnishings. The spacious lounge had good views with a super 42" television. Heating set just right. A lovely kitchen with all mod cons and a welcomed pinta in the fridge for a cuppa on arrival. The high powered shower is better than our one at home. Plenty of towels. Comfortable beds. The gated veranda was great for our dog to roam freely and there was a great exercise field near by. Overall a 5* Lodge at affordable prices. Thank you David.

First impressions were very positive following a speedy and very helpful response to our initial enquiry from owner David. Our expectations were then more than met when we arrived to find the lodge to be spotlessly clean, well equipped and with the added bonus of an xbox to keep my boys entertained on the one morning when it rained. The location of the site is excellent and catered well for the needs of all in our family group, including Grandparents. Decent local roads mean it is easy to drive to and we found it particularly handy to have several large supermarkets nearby. There is so much to see and do in the local area that we are looking forward to a return visit next year.

Booked late, but David was very helpful and accommodating as we only wanted a 2 night stay not the normal 3 night, when we arrived at the lodge there was tea, coffee, sugar and milk already there. The beds were made, and towels were available if needed. The lodge itself was immaculate and well looked after, the view from the lodge was brilliant, the site is clean and tidy. a short walk to the pub with excellent food and drink Will be booking again when needed

Stayed hear with our four children, beautifully kept lodge & grounds, very peaceful, nice leisure complex a few minutes walk away & a lovely pub on site, food reasonable but drinks a bit on the pricey side. Within easy reach of most places Paignton, Torquay, Totnes & Dartmouth by Steam Train & Foot Ferry which was a fantastic day out, left the car most days and caught the bus using a group day saver (bus stop right outside site) Nice touch to leave towels(the biggest I've ever seen) & beds made up on arrival. Added bonus to have a dishwasher & washing machine. David the owner easy to deal with, lovely man & always comes back to you, would happily recommend his lodge & the Devon Hills Site.
