Tasteful New England style lodge located on a working smallholding close to the village of Clovelly, and near to the North Devon coast.

This property is one of two holiday cottages on the owner’s smallholding close to the pretty village of Clovelly. Clovelly is a wonderful place to while away a day, and with its traffic-free cobbled streets, feels like a peaceful step back in time. There are guided tours of the village available, as well as the chance to visit the Fisherman’s Cottage museum and take part in pottery and craft workshops. A range of boat trips are offered from the village’s harbour, and visitors can also buy daily fishing permits. A short drive to the south, the Cornish town of Bude is a popular place for seaside lovers, with its choice of beaches, and traditional seaside facilities including a tidal pool. And don't forget to visit the beautiful gardens of RHS Rosemoor altogether making this a great location for exploring both Devon and Cornwall.

This wooden lodge-style property is tastefully decorated in an understated style, which makes it a perfect place to enjoy a relaxed holiday. The main living area is the spacious lounge diner, which has French doors leading to the property’s decked area. The comfortable seating in this room allows guests to relax and unwind whilst enjoying the TV and DVD. The well-equipped kitchen has everything that guests will need, including an electric oven and hob, microwave, fridge with ice compartment, washing machine and dishwasher. The property’s two bedrooms are also located on the ground floor. The main bedroom is a tranquil and relaxing double, whilst the second bedroom is an equally tasteful and understated twin room. The bathroom benefits from an elegant roll-top bath and a separate shower cubicle and WC.

Outside, the detached lodge sits in its own grounds with a large lawn perfect for the pups or children to play in while you watch from the decked area with seating and a BBQ. Guests are also more than welcome to explore the smallholding and may enjoy meeting and helping to feed the animals, which include a goat, chickens, turkeys, and geese.

The lodge also has ample private and gated parking.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

The cottage was immaculately clean, very well equipped and comfortable and the garden was perfect for our two dogs, with plenty of space and no escape routes! The location was idyllic but only a few minutes from the A39, leading West to Cornwall and East to Bideford and Barnstaple. Fabulous beaches within a 30 minute drive and Clovelly just up the Read moreroad. A perfect relaxing holiday. Hide

We rented both cottages on the farm so that the grandparents could share our holiday too but with space of their own. It worked brilliantly. Delightful garden and set in stunning surroundings.

Lovely cottage in a rural area. The cottage has all the amenities you could ask for. The garden is brilliant for dog lovers, very large and secure.

A wonderful week in a gorgeous lodge. We ate outside almost every day, the kids loved running around the huge garden and the tranquillity of the place was outstanding.

We had a lovely week at Orchard Lodge. It was very clean and was well equipped. Although the weather wasnt the best it didnt stop us from getting about and seeing the many beautiful places in and around north Devon and it was lovely to return back to the lodge where it was warm and cosy. Angela and Philip are extremely friendly and the welcome packRead more in the lodge on our arrival was a lovely surprise especially the chocolate cake!
