“Perfect break”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 21, 2013

My friend and I found Downton Lodge on the Internet and checked out the reviews. Sounded great so we booked for a short break. We expected the best and actually what we received exceeded our expectations.

This is a lovingly restored home, set in beautiful surroundings and run by exceptional hosts. Our tastefully decorated room had a balcony with distant sea views, a spotless bathroom with large, soft bath towels and really comfortable beds.

No wonder people return to Downton Lodge. This place is a real find and we will be back.

Downton Lodge is in an excellent location - perfect for visiting Dartmouth and Dittisham and for walks along the SW Coast Path?
Comfortable room, excellent breakfast and cake in the afternoon; this
together with friendly owners makes Downton Lodge the perfect B & B.

Our second visit in two years. We booked for two nights but stayed for three! Ian and Karen warmly welcomed us back, and we thoroughly enjoyed the great breakfasts, cake in the afternoon which was very welcome after a long coastal path walk, and extra touches like toiletries in the bathroom. Beautiful views, wonderful weather, and a peaceful location.

We returned this week to Downton Lodge for a second visit, having stayed there three years ago. Everything was just as before, lovely warm cosy room, very comfortable bed, excellent breakfasts and a warm welcome from Ian and Karen. Extra touches are cake awaiting you on your arrival back each afternoon and fresh milk in the guests 'fridge and for us, a very important factor which I mentioned on our last visit, are the large bath towels! When next we visit this area we shall stay once more at Downton Lodge!

My husband and I have revisited Dittisham Lodge this autumn and were not disappointed by a repeat visit. The level of service and comfort is very high and the quality of the breakfast is superb. It is a great centre for visiting local places of interest. Highly recommended
