The location of the lodge is perfect with beautiful views, close to the beach and near local amenities.
The accommodation had everything we could ask for very clean, tidy and set out ready for an amazing stay with nice added touches.
The owner Neil greeted us on the first day he was approachable, easy to talk to, gave us information on the area and made us feel at ease.
The pool was heated, great size and the hot tub was perfectly positioned to look out a the beautiful of the town and sea.
We will definitely recommend to anybody and we will be booking to stay again.
The perfect place to relax and have fun with friends.
Thank you for a great holiday destination perfect for what our group needed.

We have just come back from the most amazing stay in Appledore, north Devon.
The accommodation itself had everything you could ask for very clean, tidy and set out ready for an amazing stay.
We were welcomed personally by the owner Neil he was approachable, easy to talk to, gave us information on the area and what was more lovely is Neil personally brought us up a bottle of champagne and was welcomed with a box of chocolates, breakfast and many more luxuries.
He also text to see if everything was ok on a regular basis.
The pool was heated, our children 7 and 10 had amazing fun in the pool and the hot tub was lovely over looking the sea. There was also an Xbox with a wide variety of games to choose from.
The area itself was so pretty the sea views from the lodge were stunning.
We will defiantly recommend to anybody and we will be booking to stay again very soon.
The perfect place to relax and unwind.
Thank you Neil for a great holiday.

“Excellent, real treat”
Reviewed 3 January 2016 for a stay in December 2015

We loved staying here, my two teenage kids loved their own room, own bathroom and TV! The owners were very welcoming and friendly. We all loved the hot tub! There is a swimming pool as well , we would like to return in the warmer weather to try it out! You won't be disappointed!

“Lovely accommodation, relaxing and peaceful yet lots of fun with the hot tub and pool”
Reviewed 26 November 2015 for a stay in August 2015

We're a family of 5 with 3 children aged between 11 and 14. On our arrival we were pleasantly surprised by the accommodation. It had been newly finished and was spotlessly clean exactly as the description and pictures provided. We were met by the owners son who opened up and showed us around and answered any questions that we had so we felt right at home. In the property we were met with a bottle of sparkling wine which was nice but more importantly all the basics sugar, milk, tea, coffee etc. We met with Neil the owner who was also very helpful and was easily contactable. In all this is a great place to stay for its location for surfing, walking, bike riding or if you want just generally hanging around the pool, the hot tub and relaxing. We would definitely make a return visit.

“The Perfect Place To Stay !”
Reviewed 1 November 2015 for a stay in September 2015

Hi What can I say If you want a rental where there has been incredible attention to detail. We just loved it at Surf bay lodge and did not want to go home. From the wet room/bathroom super bedroom very well equipped kitchen, and the views OMG the view is just amazing. The hot tub was a great way to relax after exploring the historical towns of Appledore and Bideford.

Thank for a great stay.

Just spent a week here as a young couple and had an absolutely fantastic time; this place definitely deserves its first proper review!

Separate parking and enterance to the annex via the garden. Both the owners house and the annex face the pool area so we were worried about the amount of privacy we would get, but we needn't have been! Neil (the owner) and his family kept their curtains closed the entire time and left the pool/hot tub exclusive to us. As there was only 2 of us we didn't need to use the other room + on suite but can vouch that it was a good size and I have no doubt that it would have felt very seperate to the owners house with direct access from the garden also. The annex itself is perfect and we didn't want for anything - we even miss the bed!! The pool is heated but cold on entry, no complaints after a few lengths though! The hot tub is glorious with tonnes of lights and settings, and more importantly has a sea view! We watched the sun set every evening. Bubbly and chocolates on arrival made a nice surprise. Also we didn't take a dog but we thought it was very sweet that they provided a mat, bowl and some treats. Sofa bed in the living room also super comfy. The beach is very close and adorable, very pet friendly also...made me wish I had brought my dogs! Thanks very much for making us feel so at home!
