The Brown House is in a quiet rural location amongst a number of similar lodges, the views are beautiful and there is fishing and walking in the area. Although it feels like you are miles from anywhere the main A 39 Atlantic Highway is only a few minutes drive up the lane, making this a great base for exploring this corner of North Devon/Cornwall. We were very comfortable in The Brown House, it was lovely and warm, there was plenty of hot water and the kitchen was very well equipped. We found the sound on the TV was rather distorted, so wondered if the set needed attention? Also there are only communal waste bins on site, so we had to save our rubbish and drive it round to the bins. These are my only negatives and they did not detract from our holiday, we had a lovely relaxing break.

If you want a nice quiet base for trips around north Devon and Cornwall then this lodge is perfect. It has a great location within the site and the site is secluded but within 3 minutes of the A39. It was clean and a good size for the cost. Only disappointment was the wifi but it is in the middle of the countryside so it did my kids good not be on YouTube for a couple of days.
