This pretty lodge is nestled in a small complex of similar properties conveniently close to Dartmoor National Park and offers your own private hot tub – it’s a perfect base for a relaxed family holiday.

This property is located close to the north-western edge of Dartmoor National Park, just 3 miles from the town of Okehampton, where there are a number of shops, takeaways, and supermarkets, as well as specialist shops which cater for Dartmoor’s walkers, cyclists, and climbers. Dartmoor itself offers many miles of scenic walks for all abilities, ranging from easy strolls through to challenging hikes and climbs. With great transport links nearby you will also be within a short drive of the stunning cathedral city of Exeter and within an easy drive of popular tourist destinations of the south coast and the unspoilt villages along the northern coastline. Other attractions within easy reach include Meldon Reservoir and Viaduct, Lydford Gorge, Roadford Lake, Okehampton Castle, the Miniature Pony Centre, Crealy Adventure Park and numerous National Trust properties.

This property offers comfortable accommodation for six guests and is accessed via a set of external stairs to the front door. Venture inside and through to the beautiful open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner which offers two sets of French doors which lead to outside and also let in a beautiful amount of light. Sit back and relax amongst the rich, soft furnishings and watch your favourite programme on the Smart TV or just enjoy an evening under the stars with the flame-effect electric fire glowing in the background. Keen cooks will enjoy the kitchen area which boasts a great range of appliances including an electric oven and gas hob, microwave, fridge/freezer, Bosch Tassimo coffee machine, dishwasher and also a washing machine. After a long day, head down the hall where you will find the three pretty bedrooms; the first being the double room with its own en-suite shower room with WC, dressing area and a TV. The second and third bedrooms each offer twin beds, one with 2’6” single beds and then completing the offering inside the property is a lovely contemporary bathroom with a shower over the bath and a WC.

Venture outside onto the large decked terrace where you can fire up the charcoal BBQ during warm weather, or take a dip in the private sunken hot tub. Private off-road parking for two cars is also provided.

What a fabulous lodge! Great value for money. Felt very spacious and high spec. Kitchen fully equipped, much better than mine at home! Hot tub was great, again no expense spared. Was greeted on arrival and was someone on hand if we had any issues (which we didnt). Handy location for both Exeter and Plymouth. Would highly recommend.

Overall Chestnut Lodge was fine but could have been cleaner - there was a chip on the dining chair, dog hair on the sofa, under the sofa cushions is full of crumbs/glitter etc (the sofa is also losing its firmness), there were spiders in the corridors/dbl bedroom, flies were annoying, the batteries in the fire remote & the left side of the toaster Read moredidnt work. You can hear the traffic from the main road at all times. The kitchen is well equipped. That said its a good location & we would return. Hide

The heating wasn't working and the towel rails were cold but the weather was mild and we had hot water so it wasn't a problem until it turned colder. We then found that the boiler wasn't working properly and was showing a fault code. I reported it, a plumber was brought it in, he managed a partial fix and we had sufficient warmth for our last full Read moreday. Apart from that, everything was as per the blurb on the website - a comfortable lodge on a lovely site. Hide

Second visit to Chestnut lodge and it was another great visit. The lodge is home from home, everything is catered for. Situated in a lovely part of Devon, Okehampton is a lovely town with plenty of shops for supplies. You do need a car though as I dont think it is on a bus route. The pub next door to the park has recently changed hands and we heardRead more lots of good reports about the food. All in all would highly recommend Chestnut Lodge. Hide
