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

Absolute comfort in an idyllic setting!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Hakeford Lodge was wonderful, we couldn’t have asked for a more beautiful and peaceful setting! The cottage is superbly fitted out, everything you could think of has been provided. After our days out discovering the area we looked forward to coming back to tea in the garden and just listening to the sounds of nature. Very special.

Wonderful lodge in a peaceful setting

  • 5 of 5

The lodge was very well kitted out with everything you'd need or want for a stay in North Devon. Sue and Terry were great hosts, introducing themselves and giving useful info about the lodge and area, but otherwise left us to our own devices.

The location is beautiful and a great base for exploring North Devon, and is only a short drive from Barnstaple for supermarket trips etc. Weather didn't allow us to spend too much time in the garden but it was very peaceful, and the woods opposite were great for a short evening walk.

I'd definitely recommend Hakeford Lodge, and will look to come back next time we're in the area.
