Our first impression was very positive with the nice scenery and we were welcomed by Ian with some very tasteful scones.
We slept in the honeysuckle lodge: a very nice lodge with enough room for 5 (2 adults, 3 children). We were lucky having very nice weather and could enjoy the swimming pond every day, which was blissful for the kids! The coast, Dartmoor and Exmoor are not to far away for a day's trip. Biking on the Tarka trail is attainable with public transport. We could lend for our time there, 5 bikes for us and our three children (age 9,8 &6): we made some trips nearby towards the playground and a forest (Hollocombe wood).
Ian was so friendly in lending a moth trap which yielded some nice moths and mayflies.
An unforgettable place!
