“Exceptional holiday experience definitely to be repeated.”
Reviewed August 12, 2014 for a stay in July 2014

Mallard lodge was excellent, having every appliance and implement required. The lodge was exceptionally clean and well furnished with good accessibility for our son in his wheelchair.
The location was stunning with beautiful views from all the lodges across the lake and beyond, and travel to local activities was easy by car.
The bar on site was welcoming, reasonably priced, with a good selection of drinks including 'local ales' and we spent a few relaxing evenings there in the company of the owners and several other guests.
The swimming pool was warm and not overcrowded as the guests tended to police themselves as to the number of bathers at a time, and the hoist was suitable for disabled access to the water.
The games room had a good selection of activities especially for younger visitors should the weather be poor, which however was not the case during our stay.
The owners, Karen, Ian, and their son Robert were amazingly friendly and helpful, making everyones holiday enjoyable and they deserve to succeed with their new project.
We as a family usually find a week is too short for a good break with fourteen days being too long. This time however after our fourteen days at Blagdon farm we all could have stayed longer, and will definitely be returning at some time.

Newly reopened by the friendly new owners Karen & Ian, Blagdon is being restored to its former glory. We had great time last week with the family, mallard is beautifully furnished and equipped, the indoor pool was a great hit with the family, a drink in the bar was appreciated, and the grounds are lovely. Still very suitable for disabled. Karen and Ian we wish you well!

“FANTASTIC TRANQUIL RETREAT”
Reviewed April 1, 2014 for a stay in March 2014

My husband and I visited BLAGDON FARM HOLIDAYS and stayed in "MALLARD" lodge for the first time - just so beautifully furnished and stunning views over their fishing lake. So quiet and peaceful and gave us the quality time away from our busy lives. Karen and Ian Stockdale were so helpful and provided us with lots of useful information during our stay - and their son Robert gave us some useful fishing tips.
We were also impressed by the immaculate cleanliness of the lodge and all its fittings.
If you want a "get away from it all" holiday - this is absolutely the right location for you!
