Recent Reviews

The property was absolutely stunning and set out so perfectly for a family getaway.

5 of 5
The property is set in such a beautiful way, right on the beach front for the most beautiful views of the sun rise and set. All the facilities were absolutely perfect from the gym to the spa pool the house was set out so lovely for a family very child friendly. The gym was very good had all equipment that would be needed for any active persons and a run along the beach front is absolutely refreshing in the mornings. The spa pool was amazing very clean and child friendly can be set to plenty of temperatures and spa settings for what you feel would be best for you and a very handy speaker system to connect to your music device. The kitchen was filled with everything that would be needed in any kitchen we made plenty of big family dinners and never had an issue. The property is very spacious with more than enough space for a large family. The local village is just 10 minuet walk away and the people are so friendly and helpfull in all of the stores. Our family had a fantastic time away at Tudor Lodge and would recommend it to anyone, it's an absoultly stunning property and everything that is needed for a fantastic getaway was there.

A lovely apartment that is ideally located to see this area of Devon.

5 of 5
We had a great week over Christmas. The apartment is modern but still cosy for this time of year and the festive decorations added to the ambience - Lyn was thoughtful enough to ring us beforehand to check we weren't getting away from Christmas! The place is very clean and comfortable and provided everything we needed, especially as we ate in most nights. The location is perfect for coastal walks (both Dawlish and Dawlish Warren are just a 15 minute walk away) and with good rail and bus services close by it's easy to go further afield without using the car.
