For larger groups or family get-togethers, you cannot better this house! From the cream tea and wine welcome tray, to the spotless, spacious accommodation, views of the river valley, and location convenient for all North Devon has to offer - Tennacott Lodge ticked every box. Our 15 month old granddaughter was very excited to watch over 100 cows pasRead mores by her highchair at breakfast time. The lovely owners will give you a tour of the farm and dairy if you ask. Hide

A wonderful property in a beautiful location. Really spacious kitchen which is such a nice feature to have - being able to sit around the lovely table which seats 12 with amazing views on all sides. Just perfect!

This property was extremely well presented and converted from an old barn. Absolutely top notch on all accounts. No expense spared on its fixtures and fittings. Very safe for young kids who loved the play area. Stunning views. Perfect for large families!!

Delightful rural location with stunning views over the river valley; close to Bideford yet Tennacott Lodge feels much in the countryside. The house is well appointed with everything you need for two families or a 3G holiday. Bedrooms are spacious and all have views. The kitchen/ dining/ play area is excellent. We really enjoyed the farm visit with Read more"Farmer John" and the family are really welcoming. The children (and adults) enjoyed the tractor ride, cows being milked and tasting the ice cream!
