There are still thankfully places where you can get away from it all and here at Higher Shorston Lakes & Lodges we have your perfect holiday destination, with nature trails, fishing lakes and a riverside picnic area. There is also a games room, and an information lodge with free Wi-fi. A children's play area with full sized 'Play Boat' and lots more space to explore for wildlife.
Secluded, yet only 1 mile from the old market town of Holsworthy, with its weekly cattle market and pannier market. We are also only 8 miles from the rugged coastline of North Cornwall with its well known surfing beaches of Bude and Widemouth Bay and its breathtaking coastal path walks.
Primrose Lodge is a 2 bedroom log cabin with grass roof.

A perfect retreat for couples and families, a short drive to the local amenities beaches and fishing villages, and totally peaceful especially at night where the only thing you might hear in the distance is the hoot of an owl, a lovely tranquil setting, with everything you need inside your snug cabin, well furnished with fridge, washing machine and dishwasher, oven, kitchen utensils supplied, I'd recommend this break to anyone who just wants to turn off from the world for a while, great stay
Thank you for the lovely review and it was a pleasure to have you stay at our Lodges.
Really nice and open Lovely views
The area is beautiful
Close to Bude which is a great town to visit
With great shops canal walks lovely beach
No internet in this area
But could go to the hub building to use it
Could do with a bigger fridge for all our self catering food and milk!
Our tiny puppy loved the walks around the lake
It was lovely to have you stay at our lodges and I'm glad you had a great time. Loved meeting your tiny tiny puppy!
Beautiful lodge in a stunning location
We were greeted on arrival to fresh milk in the fridge, scones, jam and clotted cream! The lodge itself was spotless and beautifully appointed. I don't think we've stayed anywhere more peaceful and tranquil. We sat on the verandah most evenings - watching the sun go down, enjoying the escape from the city. The two resident ducks
waddled around the lodge most days, usually followed by rabbits. The icing on the cake was seeing the deers in the early morning mist, or when it was turning to dusk. Just magical. Sylvia was a perfect host - so friendly and chatty. Bude is only about 15 mins away by car - so we spent days on the beach and exploring the coast path. Sylvis was kind enough to let us bring our two dogs - and Bude is very very dog friendly. Cafes and shops welcomed our two boys - and were often given treats by the shop owners. Would highly recommend the lodges as a perfect escape and as a base to explore Devon and Cornwall. We shall definately go back!
Creme de la creme
Thank you Sylvia for sharing your little bit of Devon heaven with us. The welcome goodies were very thoughtful.
Primrose Lodge blew us away. The exterior is very environment conscious and the interior is spacious, comfortable and decorated in a modern light and airy fashion.
It was blissful having morning coffee on our own private decking to the accompaniment of ducks quacking on the lake, birdsong and sheep bleating in the nearby fields.
Although the peace and tranquility suggests you are miles from civilisation, you have Holsworthy 500 yards down the road where you can buy all the groceries etc.. you require.
The location is perfect for exploring both Devon and Cornwall. Whether you are a keen angler, a family with small children, a couple looking for a romantic getaway or a stressed executive in need of a "time out" I would say that you should look no further.
Thank you so much for your lovely comments. I'm really glad you had a nice short break. Thank you also for the card and bottle of wine it really was unnecessary but much appreciated!
Kind regards, Sylvia
