Stayed here in January for a long weekend. Excellent lodges and facilities. Hot tubs just great. The owner Jill was very helpful and made the stay perfect. Loads to see and do locally. Thoroughly recommended.

Lodge was clean, spacious, with an ensuite as well as luxury bathroom. The bed in the master bedroom was so comfy. The hot tub was fantastic particularly after a day horse riding (Haldon farm stables - would recommend, good value for money, friendly staff and lovely horses). The lodge setting is so peaceful, with beautiful lake views.

I will definitely return!

words cant describe in full the beauty of the lodges. we stayed in the Heron lodge for our engagement. five star accomodation, accompanied by five star hosts. Jill and Andrew. the interior and exterior are just sheer luxury and perfect in everyway. i commend you both for the work you put in to keeping them exceptional!.if you think the photos look good..........wait till you get there!! wow!! what a place. looking forward to our next stay, which wont be too long if i get round my lovely man. see you soon and thankyou soooo much xx

Room Tip: hot tub was just the added touch to superb accomodation. far far better than a room in a hotel

Thank you for such a wonderful break, it went far too quick! A Luxury lodge with little extra finishing touches that make it so special. We were greeted by Jill and her son when we arrived who showed us round and arrived to fresh flowers, cream tea and champagne.

There is a Massive 50" Plasma TV, a stove for when its cold, large hot tub, a memory foam beds wich are so cosy, modern high spec appliances, Snuggly sofas.

Jill and Andrew made us feel very welcome and couldn't be more helpful.

We were so sorry to leave...we will be back. I hope next time can be for two weeks! :0)

Very close to Exeter, Dartmoor (great for dog walking) Dartmouth etc

There's a wood close by with plenty of trails to walk, bike ride or horse ride.

Sainsburys is the closest large supermarket and a co-op close too, but there is a tesco and Asda not much further. You can also visit the local farm shops offering lots of tastey foods.

Jill and Andrew also offer free range eggs, Cakes, cream teas, and groceries.

It is difficult to find a Luxury lodge to this high standard that take dogs, you are usually offered a lower spec lodge and treated like a second class citizen but not at South View lodges! Willow our Border Collie pup was treated like royalty.

Thanks Jill and Andrew, we will be back soon!

Sarah, Al and Willow

Thanks to Jill and Andrew, what a weeks holiday, they could not do enough to help.
The lodges are excelent, clean, tidy, and spacous.
The little touches like a bottle of wine and the cup cakes were a lovely treat.
The hot tub was brilliant after a day of fishing.
All five of us had a great time here and we all just wished we could of stayed a week longer.
Would i reccomend this adorable place to anyone? Hell yes!
what a way to unwind, relax, and lose yourself for a week!

We arrived home today after staying at SouthView Lodges over the Easter weekend. Just wanted to say what a great time we had. Our welcome was lovely and the lodge was beautifully clean and homely with a lovely added touch of an easter egg tree and fresh flowers. My partner enjoyed his fishing and caught quite a few and I enjoyed shopping in Exeter town and chilling out. In the evening we spent a long time in the hot tub having a glass or 2 (plastic of course) of wine and just chatting and enjoying time together. It was all relaxing and an excellent 'get-a-way from it all'. We definately plan to visit again.
