Just returned from Lodge 6 at Clovelly Lakes. We were in Lodge 7 - 5 years ago and I must say that the standards kept are excellent. Everything clean and all in good working order. A real credit to Mr Symonds and Caroline and anyone else who helps them.
The facilities in the lodges are more than adequate and even when we have paid a lot of money for villas and cottages we have not found them equipped with dishwasher tablets, kitchen roll, washing up liquid, condiments etc as the ones are at Clovelly Lakes .
Lodge 6 has a small glazed in sitting area overlooking the lake - perfect on windy/cold days. I sat and read there while my chap was fishing - I was warm and cosy while he was out in the cold. We ate in many good pubs around the area and I would particulalry recommend The Old Smithy signposted off the A39 on the road to Bude. A smallish menu and the dining area lacked character but the food was very fresh and very well cooked. The bar area was cosy and full of character - as I am sure the dining area will be soon.
We both slept very well, probably after lots of fresh air every day and the bed, quilt and pillows were very comfortable.
The surroundings are beautiful, the wildlife interesting and to conclude - I cant wait to return
If you like to fish all lodges are good but ones directly on the lakes are perfect.
