“If you're looking for peace and quiet then this is the place!”
Reviewed 19 September 2016 for a stay in September 2016

We enjoyed a very relaxing week at Forest View. No internet access was a nice change and easily ignored. Mobile phone reception was a bit dodgy and non existent at times. It was a great base from which to explore North Devon.

Internet access is being investigated. We can provide Mi-Fi internet but this relies on the mobile network which is poor at times.

Accommodation was clean and very comfortable. There is parking immediately in front of the lodge. The bedrooms were comfortable and spacious with plenty of storage for clothes, cases etc. A hairdryer was available along with iron & board so no need to carry a travel iron. The views from the lodge windows are fantastic and the site very peaceful. There are plenty of places of interest to visit whether you have young children teenagers or are an all adult party, but a car is essential as supermarkets, towns, beaches and attractions are all quite a distance. My party included one adult and 4 teenagers but not once did they tell me they were bored. Access to the property was by steps which could be slippy if wet, but we were made aware of that before we arrived. Disabled/elderly people with mobility difficulties would not be able to access this accomodation as there is no ramp.

Thank you for this helpful and positive review. One of the charms of the area is its peacefulness but this does mean a car is essential although local taxis are available for that odd occasion. The front steps are wired so should not be slippery but the rear decking can be slippery when wet. We accept that having steps to the entrance does limit access for wheelchair dependent guests. This is something we make this clear where necessary.

“Absolutely beautiful”
Reviewed 15 October 2013 for a stay in October 2013

I was fortunate enough to stay here for a long weekend and cannot fault the Lodge at all, it was wonderful.

The Lodge was spotlessly clean and well looked after and provided everything you could possibly need and more. The peaceful and wonderful setting, only added to the existing charm. I could have stayed another week.

Am so pleased that I am already looking to book again for next year.

My husband and I stayed at Forest View with our dog for four nights we had a great time exploring the coast around this area.

The lodge was excellent value and although we only used one bedroom there were three bedrooms in total and two bathrooms so ideal for larger groups.

A car is essential as there are no amenities in walking distance but if you are looking for a quiet and relaxing base Forest View is ideal.

The Old Smithy Inn a short drive away is worth a visit and is dog friendly.

Lovely break!
