Fantastic well equipped property in a unique setting.
We arrived at the property, parked the car for the week, lovely walks on the door step especially the track to Fingle bridge where we enjoyed a Devonshire cream tea, on the way back several deer ran straight out in front of us, things do not get much better than that, had a great relaxing week & hope to return next year.
So pleased you loved our lodge and enjoyed your holiday. Sounds like you had a great time and seeing the deer is always a bonus. Hope to see you next year.
Fantastic location, spacious feel to the lodge and appreciated having the wifi.
Very peaceful location and the kids loved the freedom ofbeing able to ride their bikes around. It was nice being away from the mobile phone reception but it was great having the wifi access. This made it possbile to book activities online and do our research for days out.
It was a shame that the pool was not up and running but the river was the next best thing!
Will hopefully return again.
Really pleased to hear that you enjoyed our lodge and the wonderful setting away from it all. It really is the ideal place to escape the hustle and bustle of daily life and yet still be able to explore Dartmoor and Devon really easily. Nice for the kids, too, to be able to enjoy nature and old fashioned pursuits like paddling in the river. Hope we see you again in the future.
Excellent,if you want to get back to nature

Thank you for your positive review of our lodge Katrina and we are so pleased that you all enjoyed the lodge and had a wonderful holiday. Do hope you will be able to visit again in the future.
We (family of 5 - kids 11 and 13 + a cockerpoo) have just returned from a weeks break at Trout River Lodge. I must say that we had a fantastic relaxing break. The Lodge is very clean and has all the creature comforts needed for your holiday. The scenery is outstanding and you really feel that you are in the heart of the Dartmoor wilderness. Fantastic walks on your doorstep, we did the Fingle Bridge walk (1 hour each way) with a 2 hour stop at the pub (which has great food and is picture card perfect) a number of times. The kids were gutted at first that there was no mobile or Internet but had completely forgoten at the end of the week after embracing the nature and wildlife. Wife and myself commented on how it gave us memories of how holidays were when we were kids.
Saubere Unterkunft in sehr netter und ruhiger Umgebung, wenn man gewisse Abgeschiedenheit mag... Das Zimmer im OG wird bei viel Sonne leider sehr warm, was aber wahrscheinlich nicht in jedem Sommer das Problem ist... Insgesamt sehr empfehlenswerte Unterkunft.
Clean accommodation in very nice and quiet surroundings, if you like some seclusion... The room on the floor is very warm with lots of sun, which is probably not the problem every summer... Overall very recommendable accommodation.
Thank you for your review. So pleased you enjoyed our lodge and the very peaceful location. Its a great place from which to explore Dartmoor. The lodge is in a very sunny situation and the balcony gets sun most of the day which is fantastic especially for eating outside in the evening. As you mention, being too hot is not normally a problem! Your visit was during our heatwave and you must have seen Dartmoor at its very best.
The South Devon coast is approx. one hour's drive away. Here you can find
estuaries such as Salcombe, Dartmouth, Teignmouth - ideal for boat trips, sandy beaches like Blackpool Sands with its superb cafe, Bantham - a surfing paradise and Bigbury where you can walk across the sands to Burgh Island. There are also quiet coves and rock pools and for walkers there is the endless coastal path with glorious views of the sea at every step.
Although hidden in this quiet corner of Dartmoor access is very easy. Follow the M5 and then A30 which has a junction at Cheriton Bishop only 10 minutes from the lodge. The port of Plymouth is approximately an hour away and Exeter airport approximately half an hour away by car.
The lodge is located in the Dartmoor National Park. Moretonhampstead with numerous shops, banks, etc. is 10 minutes drive away. Dunsford and Fingle Bridge, both with excellent pubs, are either 10 minutes by car or about one hour by foot along the river. There is a good village shop in Cheriton Bishop 10 minutes by car. Castle Drogo, a National Trust property, is 15 minutes by car or 1.5 hours on foot from the lodge. Chagford and Bovey Tracey are 20 minutes by car.
