Tucked away on the edge of woodland with the River Teign at the bottom of the garden, this is an unusual retreat for anyone wanting to escape for a while from the pressures of modern urban life. Approached via a grass track over two fields, this amazing lodge is totally screened from the road. All of the accommodation is on one floor, but the lodge is elevated, and the balcony off the living room allows you to step out into the heart of the wooded landscape in which this lodge is hidden. It is within walking distance of the delights of Chagford, and Castle Drogo is not far away.

Dartmoor: the largest remaining wilderness in southern England. Not more than a dozen miles inland from the tropical palm trees of the south Devon coast, the roads rise a few hundred feet and you are transported abruptly to an altogether different terrain. This is a breathtakingly beautiful, wild land, sometimes bleak and inhospitable, characterised by sweeping expanses of moorland, high granite tors, plunging wooded river valleys and an evocative atmosphere of antiquity and mystery. On its softer eastern and southern fringes, Dartmoor National Park has picturesque villages and thick woods cloaking steep valleys. The many faces and moods of Dartmoor would be more than enough to occupy an entire holiday, but also within easy reach are the vibrant cities of Plymouth and Exeter and the beautiful coast and estuaries of south Devon.On the northern edge of the moor, the Trust owns the fabulous twentieth-century fortress-home of Castle Drogo, in a dramatic position above the Teign Gorge. On the western edge is the spectacular Lydford Gorge, with waterfall and whirlpools, which has been a tourist attraction since Victorian times. In the heart of the moor at Widecombe, there is a Trust shop adjoining the sixteenth-century Church House.
National Trust places nearby include Parke Estate, Brafley, Compton Castle, The Church House and Castle Drogo.Other attractions in the area include Designers Guild, Becky Falls, Bovey Tracey, Dartmoor, Teignmouth and Teign estuary and the area is perfect for walking, bird watching and horse riding.
