About the property

2 bedroom lodge with outstanding views of Dartmoor, fully furnished with WiFi

BLUEBELLS - a unique opportunity to stay in one of three really cosy log cabins at Highampton which lies between Hatherleigh and Holsworthy. Our lodges are constructed from 8" pine logs and are exceptionally warm and welcoming. We offer clean, comfortable accommodation that has views which are absolutely fantastic - right across miles of beautiful Devon countryside to Dartmoor in the distance. South facing with undercover patio. Parking on your own driveway alongside your lodge and garden area for your picnics or for the children to play in. Our lodges are fully furnished for up to four people, and are centrally placed for both the north and south coasts of Devon, and for the North Cornwall Coast - Widemouth Bay and Bude being particular favourites.

Holiday for 7 nights or take a short break - our lodges take 4 people comfortably and can also accommodate a very young child in a toddler bed but this does make the second bedroom a little crowded so it would not suit everyone.

The recently updated kitchen has a fridge, freezer, electric oven with ceramic hob and a microwave and in the lounge there's a TV/DVD and superfast Wi-Fi throughout. There is a shower room with electric shower and the water is mains, so no problem with pressure! There are heaters in all rooms and a log/coal burner in the living area.

Superfast Wi-Fi, dog-friendly in Brambles and Buttercups, toy box with games for young children and a table-tennis table and swing-ball with equipment. The village of Hatherleigh is about 4 miles away with a good selection of cafes and shops. There's also pubs, supermarket + skatepark.

The lodges face south towards Dartmoor - with absolutely fantastic views. See our website for more photographs and details.

Highampton is a small village situated in Ruby country with it’s fantastic selection of trails for walkers, cyclists and horse riders. The village of Hatherleigh is about 4 miles away and has a good selection of cafes and shops. There’s also pubs, supermarket and a new skatepark. The bustling town of Okehampton is a further 7 miles away. In the opposite direction about 7 miles away lies the pretty market town of Holsworthy with the beautiful beaches of Bude a further 9 miles away.

We are centrally places for all parts of Devon and Cornwall. The area is one of peace and tranquillity, so if it's a quiet base you want for your holiday, then Dartmoor View Lodges is the place to be.

Highampton is a small village with a pub, village hall, school and visiting post-office. Hatherleigh and Holsworthy are larger and have all the amenities you need. Our site is quiet and tranquil and wildlife is plentiful. In the early morning it is quite possible that you will see deer grazing and there are usually a lot of rabbits around and foxes pay the occasional visit. Birds thrive and we regularly see woodpeckers, tree creepers and buzzards even occasionally a kingfisher. Butterflies are also attracted by the many wild flowers that emerge in the spring.

About Andrew & Sally Walker

Recently relocated from Huddersfield in West Yorkshire, we chose this fantastic location for the perfect home for us plus the opportunity to provide great self catering holidays.

Andrew & Sally Walker purchased this cabin in 2015

Why Andrew & Sally Walker chose Black Torrington

We have 3 genuine timber lodges to choose from - Bluebells, Buttercups or Brambles. Providing luxury self-catering, the lodges are well equipped and have a 4 star rating by our partner agent which guarantees good quality fittings and bedding. The lodges are regularly updated and maintained and we have recently improved the site with extensive planting and fencing.

What makes this cabin unique

The location is the definition of peaceful and if you like wildlife, as we do, it really is perfect. We also get incredibly black nights as there is very little light pollution. It's also very well placed to explore Devon and Cornwall. Exeter is about 50 minutes away, Bude about 30 minutes. The site is surrounded by fields which is ideal for our daughters' horses and the views are dominated by the beauty of Dartmoor.

Absolute gem and the owners Andrew & Sally went out of their way to make this a special stay for us.

The lodge was so perfect as was the location. Will be revisiting as soon as we can. A well kept secret. Thanks, the Clarkes

Stunning views. Immaculate lodge.

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely fantastic. Andrew and Sally were very friendly and were on hand if we needed anything, although nothing was needed as the lodge was equipped with all you would need. Lots of personal touches which made us feel at home.

The lodge was immaculate. The surroundings are stunning. We will most definitely be coming back.

Many thanks to Andrew and Sally.

Brilliant week, beautiful surroundings, great hosts

  • 5 of 5

We have just spent a week at Bluebells lodge and what a wonderful time we had there with the kids. The view was amazing and the place nice and quiet (at least until the kids got going) It was exactly what we wanted and a perfect get away for the week.

Andrew and Sally (along with Pippa and Elsa) were also lovely and helped to make our stay a special time away with the family.

Highly recommended and definitely a place to go back to.
