Modern lodges with hot tub surrounded by woods in the middle of nowhere.

Big lounge diner with vaulted ceiling is a great place for people to get together. Big decking area for BBQs.

The surrounding woods are a great stomping ground for kids to build dens and make fires without being too far from the comfort of the lodges.

The woods are in the Blackdown Hills, a little known designated area of outstanding natural beauty (AONB): See here for more information: http://www.blackdownhillsaonb.org.uk/

The photos show Willow interior. Both interior layouts are the same for the lodges.

Bedrooms are spacious, clean and very comfortable and the open plan lounge-kitchen-dining is excellent for groups to socialise whilst preparing dinners. We love the log burner in the winter months... more

We were a group of 9 adults who wanted a weekend of rest and fun and Bracken did not disappoint as a venue! On our arrival we were greeted by the owners mum,who does an amazing job of keeping the lodge immaculate.
