Myself and my family (consisted of 2 adults and 3 children ages between 3-48) stayed here for a week in July and it ticked all the boxes for us! The Lodge is on Hartland Forest which has excellent scenery and views. It has two lakes which was great for my husband as he loves to fish! We had unlimited access to the lake throughout our stay. We took our bikes and went on bike rides and had picnics around the lodge. It has the peaceful and tranquil atmosphere that we require on our holidays!
Just a 10/15 minute drive from the lodge and you have Westward Ho beach which was beautiful! Everything was roughly just a 10/15 minute drive away such as supermarkets, restraunts, kids play areas! There was tons for the children to do! We recommend you visit the village of Clovelly and the Atlantic village (great for adults and children). We will definately be returning to Orca Lodge very soon!
