Ian & Sarah Moore
About Ian & Sarah Moore
We regularly visit Devon with friends and grandparents. We love the peace and quiet and being able to switch off from our busy jobs. Our children grew up paddling in the rock pools and walking the North Devon Coast.
Ian & Sarah Moore purchased this Cabin in 2000
Why Ian & Sarah Moore chose Hartland
We needed to get away from the daily routines!
What makes this Cabin unique
We can do what we like! No timetables or schedules. There is variety in the places to visit or alternatively we can sit in the sun and read a book. We enjoy being able to eat in, have a BBQ on the beach or go for a meal or a cream tea in one of the wonderful pubs and tea rooms in North Devon and Cornwall.
Please consider the following guidelines when booking this property:
100% refund if cancelled at least 60 days before arrival date.
Fantastic Cabin and Great Location
The cabin is in a very quiet location near a public foot path that leads to a farm where you can buy fresh eggs. The cabin itself was clean, well appointed and very comfortable. Great place to relax.
Thank you for taking the time to write a review. We are pleased that you had a nice stay
Very homeley property
Lovely property it had everything we needed,very home from home nice quiet and peaceful. We were able to visit lots of places from here.
Overall the property interior, was good,however outside left a lot to be desired very untidy .
Very difficult to find more instructions would have helped.Position of property probably the worse plot on the site.
Interior as stated good.
Would we return, No I don't think so.
Thank you for message via this site saying you had a nice time and for taking the time to write a review. We were rather perplexed that you said the outside was rather untidy. Our gardener told us that the grass had been cut and the previous people had not left any rubbish. The lodge is one of the few on the site with an enclosed garden.
We do agree that it is difficult to find which is why we issue maps and directions via the Home and Away website and why we telephoned you before your departure.
We will discuss the outside with our gardener and see if he thinks there is anything we can do to make it better.
Thank you for staying with us.
Really beautiful,lovely lodge ,everything you needed inside,excellent location
Lodge was beautiful,welcome pack was a lovely touch,the owners had thought of everything you would need for your stay and lots of extras like a cool bag and picnic bag. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and my teenage children enjoyed the walks nearby,with lovely beaches a short drive away.
Thank you so much for your lovely words. We are delighted that you enjoyed both ‘The Devon Lodge’ and the wonderful scenery of N Devon and Cornwall.
If your looking for a location that is away from the rat race then you wont go wrong with this lovely little cabin that is tucked away in the Devon country side, we had a lovely peaceful break away from the hectic work schedule, there is every thing you possibly need here, they have provided everything you could need and a lovely welcome pack on arrival, it is contained with in its own garden area no one is over looking you.
we had a week here mid June, the cabin is spotlessly clean, spacious and very comfortable, there is no wifi but if you really need to stay connected there is a mobile signal, you will need to use your car to get to locations but that was part of the beauty of it for us, being well away from any noisy holiday camp sights, it was very easy to find, we had no problem with getting there, I recommend taking a trip up to Westward Ho the beach there is magnificent, we loved this lovely lodge and would happily return in the future.
Had a lovely weekend with my family here the lodge is beautiful, very spacious and very well equipped!! Was sad to leave.
Thank you so much Joe - we're delighted you enjoyed your stay at The Devon Lodge.
