Overview

About the property

A recently refurbished, spacious, single storey cottage set in a peaceful wooded valley just outside the pretty village of Stoke Rivers. Hakeford Lodge provides quality accommodation perfect for couples and is an excellent base from which to explore beautiful North Devon, from the wilds of Exmoor to the many unspoilt beeches of the North Coast.

It has a light and airy open plan living space, with stylish decor and comfortable sofas urging you to sit down and relax. After exploring for the day, enjoy an evening in infront of the living flame fire, watch a film on the large flat screen TV complete with full Sky package including Movies and Sports. There is a Bose sound dock, DVD player, cards and board games too. The modern kitchen area is well equipped with electric oven, microwave, induction hob, full size fridge/freezer, dishwasher, washing machine, tumble dryer and a Nesspresso Citiz coffee machine.

The bedroom is luxurious and comfortable with a king size bed, sumptuous down duvet, a selection of pillows for your personal comfort, Egyptian Cotton linens and fluffy robes. The en-suite bathroom is split level with underfloor heating and offers a large bath, ideal for a long soak, a generous sized separate shower, heated towel rail and large fluffy towels.

Outside, the Lodge has its own pretty garden and parking space. Steps lead down from the patio onto a lawn and further private suntrap patio complete with comfortable dining furniture and gas BBQ.

The Lodge is attached to the owners house, but privacy is assured at all times.

About Sue Francis

Terry and I moved here three years ago from Buckinghamshire where we'd spent our entire lives. Joined by my grown up daughter Gem and our Springer Pearl, we escaped to the country and away from the busy South East. Having scoured many other counties with our wish list in hand, we finally settled on North Devon for it's unspoilt and not quite discovered yet feel, it's friendly folk who always have time for you and of course the wonderful countryside and coastline. We haven't looked back!

Sue Francis purchased this cottage in 2014

Why Sue Francis chose Barnstaple

We chose Hakeford for it's rural, yet easily accessible location (we didn't fancy negotiating very narrow lanes every day!) We hope holiday guests will also appreciate the ease of which they can to and fro whilst exploring this beautiful part of the country.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Absolutely immaculate!

The very best property we have stayed in. Everything was perfect, the owners were very welcoming, the little details in the lodge made this a home from home. This really is a place not to be missed!

An amazing two weeks

  • 5 of 5

This was the best holiday property that we have stayed in. Everything was perfect. It was a joy. No detail had been overlooked. We were particularly impressed by the comfort of the bed and the seating in the lounge area. All first class, thanks to our host and hostess.

Simply Stunning!

  • 5 of 5

Hakeford Lodge is stunning - what a find! We had the most wonderful week staying in this lovely place. It has now become the families special place and we have already booked again next year. Would definitely recommend.

Sue was a joy to deal with from the first contact to the end. I made several special requests and she was more than happy to be very accommodating - which I very much appreciated. The hosts were so friendly, their pride in offering a beautiful holiday let was shown in every aspect. The decor was lovely, the attention to detail was of the highest standard and the quality of everything was top notch, we wanted for nothing, was very happy with the added special extras that's was included, bath bombs were gorgeous and a choice of pillows - was fab!

The surrounding area offered many attractions and days out all within a short driving distance. Although we enjoyed spending time in the gardens of the Lodge, it was so peaceful, private and relaxing.

A Gem!

Delightful holiday cottage in a wonderful location.

  • 5 of 5

Hakeford Lodge is a wonderfully equipped cottage in a peaceful location that is only a short drive away from a number of local beaches, seaside villages and local attractions.

The lodge is beautifully decorated internally and externally and it is filled with lovely little touches that you notice that top the whole thing off such as local soaps and bath bombs.

It had everything we could imagine needing and we are already planning to return as soon as we can!

Lovely Property in a Lovely Location

  • 5 of 5

The Lodge is lovely and the owners have thought of everything that you could possibly want while on holiday. We would definitely recommend it!

The only downside is that there is no mobile phone signal.

Amazing find!

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a 3 day stay at Hakeford Lodge and can't recommend it enough. The owner, Sue was so helpful throughout the whole booking process and so welcoming when we arrived, introducing herself, explaining how and where various things were in the cottage but not at all intrusive.

The cottage is absolutely beautiful, inside and out. It has everything that you need for a short or longer stay. All the fixtures and fittings are of the highest quality, it really is 5 star accommodation. We have stayed in many holiday cottages over the years but this one is in a class of it's own, being the loveliest ever. The owners have thought of everything that you need to make your holiday really special.

The garden is for sole use of those renting the cottage and is so pretty and secluded. Although due to the weather, we didn't get to use it much, it was so pretty to look out on.

The cottage is in a great location for exploring the North Devon area but be prepared not to want to leave it to go out! It really is in every respect, simply perfect and we will definitely be returning - can't wait!
