About Jan Everden
Having recently retired from a senior position in the insurance industry Northill Lodge is my first venture into the tourist industry. I have stayed at some of the best hotels in the world and have very high standards. I would not expect my guests to stay anywhere that I would not be totally comfortable in myself. Therefore, the beds are pocket sprung, the linen is Egyptian cotton and the pillows and duvets are all very high quality. The furnishing and equipment is all top end. I will be very disappointed if guests do not want to come back again and again!
Jan Everden purchased this House in 2014
Why Jan Everden chose Chagford
Until you actually arrive at Northill Lodge you cannot appreciate the stunning location but it is truly one of the best in the whole of Dartmoor. Everyone who comes here falls in love. My husband and I fell in love with the main house at Northill and bought it in 2009 and were delighted when we could buy the Lodge when it became available in 2014. We have completely modernized it and now want to share our special home with guests.
What makes this House unique
Northill Lodge is located in the middle of 30 acres of private land; the only other property nearby is the main house and privacy is guaranteed. There is no road noise! Nestled into the hill the views are a key feature. Guests can walk around the property up to an ancient wood or down to a small lake fed by the Northill Leat (stream). Wildlife abounds with plenty of deer grazing undisturbed. Birdwatchers will also not be disappointed with a plentiful variety of birdlife.

Lovely cottage on a stunning property
The lodge is very comfortable with lots of thought put into the set up. The kitchen is fully equipped. There are two large doubles, a spacious twin room and 3 full bathrooms (only 2 with showers). The living room is up some steps and has ample space, lots of DVDs and board games for the family. The property is absolutely stunning and the views from the lodge are breathtaking in all kinds of weather. Our children enjoyed walking up to some of the neighbouring fields and saying hello to the animals. Definitely ask Jan to send you directions from Chagford as GoogleMaps may not be clear (and reception drops). We would definitely come back again!
Northill Lodge is an absolutely pristine property - light, airy and spacious. well equipped, very comfortable and set in wonderful grounds with stunning views. This is definitely the place to come to relax and reconnect with nature.
Driving on the local roads was a bit hairy for us 'urbanites' but we loved the feeling of being away from it all. We enjoyed walking from the house up onto the Moor and the picturesque walk down into Chagford, a charming town with good local shops, tearooms and plenty of pubs!
But most of all it would be quite easy just to while away your time at the house, exploring the grounds and enjoying the views and wildlife from the stunning first floor terrace. It was a privilege to stay in such a beautiful property. Thank you.
Dear Sonia, thank you very much for your kind review it is very reassuring to hear that our guests think the Lodge is as special as we do.
We hope to welcome you back again soon.
Beautiful, spacious property, both internally and outside space, in an idyllic location. Perfect for six adults with very close access to Dartmoor, but only a short drive from the A30.
Thank you for your kind review we think it is a very special location so it is nice to hear others agree!
We hope to welcome you back some time!
Very comfortable home, fabulous views!
A modern lodge with plenty of character. All of us very comfortable - the wood burner was a welcome addition with such an unseasonably cold weekend!
