Fab holiday. Perfect in every way!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed during May half term with the children. Felt like a little bit of paradise. So beautiful and peaceful and very well situated. Our son enjoyed the surfing at Bantham Beach. The owner, Astrid is lovely and couldn't have been more helpful. The lodge itself is well equipped, with everything you could need and super comfy beds. We enjoyed watching the birds in the garden on the feeders and in the bird box, a fox and a wood pecker. Didn't want to come home!

Peaceful and restful

  • 5 of 5

The property is well equipped. The location is very beautiful. Very peaceful, a great place to unwind. If taking a dog(which we did) the property has a small secure garden. Lovely local walks, and the local pub ( The Sloop Inn) does amazing food, (best to book). The owner Astrid popped in to make sure everything was ok, which was a lovely touch as was the goodies that were left for us. We came away very relaxed.

Bantham has a beautiful unspoilt sandy beach with views to Burgh Island and Bigbury-on-Sea. Ideal for families, surfers, body boarders and walkers. The S.W. coastal path accessed from the beach or from a path in the field opposite Willows will take you to smugglers’ coves, quaint villages and the international sailing centre of Salcombe. Dogs are allowed on the beach all year, but in summer are restricted to the western end (the Ham) which reveals large areas of sand at low tide. RNLI lifeguards patrol throughout summertime and there is a surfing school based there. Other beach facilities are the mobile beach café’ and the public toilets. Bantham village, a short walk, offers a shop, café, and The Sloop Inn with excellent food! There are 2 golf courses nearby at Thurlestone and Bigbury-on-sea. Nearest town, Kingsbridge, has two supermarkets, medical centre/hospital, cinema, leisure centre with indoor swimming pool, and a variety of cafes, restaurants and pubs. Dartmouth, Plymouth and the vast rugged area of Dartmoor is about half an hour’s drive from the lodge.
