We've just come back from 7 nights stay at this lovely lodge, it has all the amenities you need to comfortably stay for your desired break, the view from the lodge over the lake is amazing and there is plenty of wildlife to see, we were privileged to see the elusive Kingfisher whilst there as well as several Hawks, Yellow Wagtails, Dragon Flies, a Mole which was lost by the roadside... lol and parachutists from nearby Dunkerswell and an air display from the stunt plane, oh and plenty of Trout who live in the lake.
There are plenty of places to visit and the lodge is conveniently located within only a few miles of either the M5 or A303. If you happen to belong to the National Trust you will find Killerton House about 7 miles down the road, and also Knightshayes, Barrington Court and Monticute House all within an hours drive.
There is also Quad biking, horse riding, a gliding school, the Landrover experience and plenty of walks to experience if you like.
To gain access to the lodge you will need to drive down a small lane with a few limited passing points, we stayed there 7 nights and only encountered one vehicle coming the other way.
There is no parking next to this lodge but there is a small car park very close to it, it wasn't a problem for us but do expect to make a couple of trips with your luggage.
There is no mobile phone coverage at the lodge, we were aware of this when we booked and had no problem with it, in fact it was a huge bonus and we were able to relax fully and really feel free from the outside world. If you really can't live without your mobile constantly going off every five seconds then this location is not for you :-), of course if you need your fix, then you only need to drive a few miles up the road and you're back in the real world.... lol
