“Fantastic - A wonderful base from which to explore Dartmoor and Devon”

My wife and I had a really good time in this well appointed property, which is attractively decorated and superbly located. In fact I would say that having stayed at numerous holiday homes over the years that The Lodge is one of best, both from the quality of the accommodation and the location. It's in the middle of the village of Buckland Monachorum surrounded by fantastic walks, beautiful countryside and village life.

The property has everything you need for a holiday home including wifi, very comfortable beds, and a good spacious shower.

Andrew and Carol were very friendly and extremely helpful without being intrusive.

The local pub, The Drake Manor Inn, was close by and provided good value food and excellent ale.

I would really recommend The Lodge; it’s very accessible, being on the edge of Dartmoor, close to Plymouth and the coast, and is a very good base from which to explore a lovely part of Devon and Cornwall.

“The Lodge at Bedford Cottage”
Reviewed July 26, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

A very comfortable and pleasant cottage in a nice village. Well equipped and more than spacious for the two of us. Andrew and Carol Philips, the owners were very welcoming and friendly. The pub in the village served good food although not open all day which was a shame as we did look forward to a beer or two after all the walking!

Plenty of good walking on the Moors and great coast about 40 minute drive from the cottage.

We definitely recommend a visit.

We enjoyed a long weekend in the Lodge. The cottage contained everything we needed. The bed was very comfortable and the kitchen contained all the equipment we required.

“A lovely place to stay in a picture perfect village in Devon”
Reviewed July 6, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

This cottage\Lodge was lovely and very comfortable. There is a very nice pub in the village which does good food, although the kitchen in the cottage was well equipped.
Carol and Andrew are lovely and were on hand to answer any questions and share a glass of wine at the end of the day! We took our dog who was made very welcome.
I would definitely recommend this cottage to our friends for a holiday in Devon.

We only stayed for 3 nights but wish it had been longer. The cottage is charming and really well-equipped and cosy. Andrew and Carol made us (and our two dogs) very welcome. There is a lovely garden to sit out in and Dartmoor is so close. We hope to return in the not too distant future.

We had a great holiday and the cottage was as usual in a pristine condition. We have stayed in Bedford Cottage before in October 2013, just after it opened as a new holiday letting. It's set in a lovely area of Devon with lots to see and some great walks up over the moors. We would not hesitate in recommending the cottage to friends and family. Carol and Andrew are great hosts, we were well looked after and will be returning with out a doubt.
