Warm welcome, wonderful breakfast and very spacious room with a very comfy bed! The setting is beautiful and just a short stroll from the village of Dalwood where we enjoyed a massive meal at The Tuckers Arms. Tim was a great host and I would stay there again on my next visit to the area.

My wife and I spent a very enjoyable three nights at Summer Lodge. The Music Room was very roomy, nice bathroom and a large comfortable bed. Tim & Ady Henderson were friendly and helpful. The local pub, the Tucker's Arms was a delight - well-cooked food and sensible helpings. We hope to return.

This was our second visit to the Summer Lodge and we'll definitely visit again. The rural setting is perfect, and the Lodge with it's spaceous grounds and comfortable rooms more than lives up to it. Such amazing views all around as well! Once of those places where its so peaceful and properly dark at night just as it should be!
Tim and Ady give such a warm and friendly welcome and were so helpful, especially now we have a little one. Tim also cooks up a great breakfast too.
Despite it's rural location, well out of the way of the usual hustle and bustle, it's not too remote either - the Tucker's Arms is nearby for good food, and places of interest such as Lyme Regis, Axminister and other coastal villages are just a few miles away.
Would recommend to anyone wanting a relaxing country break.

Room Tip: The Annex is the most spaceous room if you have a family.

We booked our room at Summer Lodge a week before we went - Tim & Ady responded to emails v promptly and were so helpful in answering all our random questions before our visit. They put us in the 'music room' which was perfect for us and our 2 year old daughter. We had such a relaxing 6 day stay with them - Tim & Ady couldnt be more accomodating to us and our daughter - nothing was too much trouble - they are both so relaxed and friendly that you immediately feel at home. The setting is perfect if you 'want to get away from it all'....the lodge is surrounded by beautiful devon countryside dotted with cows and sheep. And the location is great for daytrips to various beaches, market towns etc - we could have stayed there much longer. Highly recommended....

I proposed to my girlfriend last weekend and the terrible weather got in the way of our plans. We were due to go to the River Cottage barbecue on Saturday, but the event was cancelled due to flooding. We were really disappointed and contemplated going home, as road closures prevented us going visiting the surrounding area. That Saturday evening, I gota phone call from Tim Henderson, who runs the lodge. He had spoken to the local village pub and they opened the restaurant for my fiancee and I - and were greeted with champagne. We were both really touched by this and it made our weekend. Thank you. You have to stay there. The setting is beautiful, the accommodation luxurious and the hosts lovely.
