This pretty property nestles in a peaceful spot on the owner’s small family run egg farm and boasts a delightful enclosed decked veranda. Recently completed it’s been lovingly furnished to provide a relaxed retreat for couples and small families alike.

Situated on the Devon/Cornwall border you will be perfectly placed to explore both counties. Head towards the coast and visit the superb sandy beaches at Bude (15.5 miles), ever popular with families and surfers, or explore the wild beauty of Dartmoor (22 miles) with its wonderful scenery offering fabulous walking and wonderful views. Roadford Lake (7 miles) is a short drive away and offers fishing, walking, and sailing activities. The market towns of Holsworthy (6 miles), Launceston (12 miles) and Okehampton (14 miles) are all within an easy driving distance. Other places of interest accessible from here include the historic maritime city of Plymouth (37 miles), the Eden Project (45 miles) and numerous National Trust properties and gardens.

Venture inside this wooden lodge and you are immediately welcomed into the open-plan living space. Here comfortable sofas area arranged in front of a Smart TV and provide the perfect place to relax after a busy day exploring. The dining area offers a lovely venue for relaxed family meals and the inclusion of a set of French doors leading to a decked veranda also means that you can dine alfresco with ease during warm weather. The kitchen is well appointed and equipped with a great range of appliances including an electric oven and gas hob, microwave, fridge with an ice compartment and a dishwasher. Head back towards the rear of the property where you will find the rest of the accommodation handily arranged. On the same level are the two bedrooms, the first a king-size with an en-suite shower and WC and the second a twin (which can be made up as a king-size on request) also with an en-suite shower room with WC.

Heading outside you will discover the gorgeous surroundings. Firstly, an enclosed, decked veranda, which is gated making it ideal for little ones or pets. Here you can sit and enjoy the views from the garden table and chairs. Steps lead down to a private lawn area where you can relax, BBQ or play ball games or badminton. Enjoy views towards the owner’s lake across the fields or why not, by arrangement, collect the eggs from the owner’s hens on site.

Enjoyed our holiday here, a comfortable lodge in a good central location for Dartmoor and the coast, lots to see and do within easy reach. Darren the owner was very friendly and we enjoyed seeing around the chicken farm - great eggs!

We had a very lovely and relaxing stay at Sparrows Rest. Darren and Joy were very welcoming and helpful hosts. The lodge was very well equipped, clean and comfortable, and we were welcomed with delicious wine, biscuits, and fresh eggs from their farm. Lovely sitting out on the decked veranda. Set in a very lovely and convenient location, with plentRead morey of areas to visit around Devon and Cornwall. We throughly enjoyed our visits to Port Isaac, Clovelly, St. Nectans Glen and Sandymouth Beach. Hide

A newly built log cabin, in a rural setting, separate from the farm. Quiet and dark at night which we loved, very peaceful and private and there is plenty of outdoor space for children to play. This is a great central location in which to explore the Devon and Cornwall coast e.g Clovelly, Sandymouth Bay ,with the Eden project being an hour away. DaRead morerren and Joy were both very welcoming, friendly and helpful. We enjoyed learning about their free range hens and eating their delicious eggs. Hide
