“Wooden caravan site”
Reviewed April 16, 2014 for a stay in April 2014

Yikes, we were shocked on the 70 -80 lodges, we read website that it was just a couple of lodges, definately wouldn't have booked if we had known, It was like a time share unit, boxes everywhere labelled Don't touch owners belongings. Dishwasher didn't work,,no phone reception. lodge was fairly clean. Shower in main bathroom didnt come out hot, so showers had to be taken in en suite For the amount you pay, we paid just a tad over 300 from mon pm to be out by 10 am on friday, you would think the cleaners would take the rubbish away and not leave a note to say if any rubbish is left, you will be charged ten pounds ! Also a note that if you use too much electricity you will be charged on your card .
Yes the bats came out at 8.15...
There was nothing good and nothing really bad about the lodge, however the surrounding area was awesome, we loved exploring the coastline and going to gardens like Docton Mill Gardens were just beautiful and excellent cream teas, excellent value unlike The Rectory.So good base for exploring.

How easy was it to book the property? How helpful were the directions to the property?
How easy was key pickup/access to the property? Overall condition of the property

Management Response

Thank you Fran for your review on your recent stay at The Devon Lodge. We are pleased you were able to use it as a base and that you enjoyed exploring Devon & Cornwall. Also, that you were grateful and benefited from the early check-in, as specifically requested.
We were however, surprised at some of your comments after our communication. The Trip Adviser website stated that 'Hartland Forest consists of self contained lodges spread across a large remote 114 acre area'. It does not say exactly how many lodges on site but that you are 'on the edge of the site'. As it is set in the valley, it is peaceful and quiet.
On the Thursday pm before you left, you did report the dishwasher as not working; however, you did also state that it didn't worry you as you were leaving the next morning. After your visit, the caretaker checked the dishwasher and reported back that it was working perfectly. The next and indeed, previous tenants have not reported any problems with the hot water or the dishwasher.
The Devon Lodge is listed a 'rural retreat' and 'relaxation'. Unfortunately or fortunately, depending on how you look at it, mobile reception is very poor at night in the valley with Vodafone having the best reception. It is reasonable during the day.
The Devon Lodge is also our family holiday home. Tucked away, hidden under the king-size bed are a few boxes with personal items that have 'Owners personal property' on them.
Our cleaners do charge extra for removal of rubbish to the bins - which are passed on the exit to Hartland Forest. The electricity is all inclusive on the proviso that you switch off everything when you leave.
We hope explains some of your comments. Ian & Sarah Moore
