Set in the heart of Ruby country (so called after the Ruby Red cattle farmed locally), Blagdon Farm is only a few minutes from the wide sandy North Cornwall beaches at Bude and Widemouth Bay, the stunning Cornish resorts of Boscastle and Padstow (home to Rick Stein's famous seafood restaurant), and the spectacular scenery of Dartmoor and Exmoor. The ancient port of Clovelly and historic Tintagel Castle are close by and the attractions of the Eden Project, the Tate St. Ives, and RHS Rosemoor Gardens are all within easy reach.
The bright lights of Launceston with its ancient castle, steam railway and bustling shopping centre is just 10 miles away. Here you will find Tescos, a retail park and many local shops. The pretty market town of Holsworthy is just 5 miles away where you will find crafts, excellent local produce and there is a market every Wednesday.
All our lodges are South facing with private terraces enjoying magnificent views over our own coarse-fishing lake to the rolling Devon fields and woodland beyond.
Blagdon Farm is the perfect place from which to explore Devon and Cornwall and you'll be sure of a very warm welcome.

We have just returned from a week staying in Wagtail Cottage at Blagdon Farm. The cottage was perfect as it is fully adapted and our son is in a wheelchair. Wagtail was spotless and there is every piece of kitchen equipment you can think of...More
This was exactly what we needed after several years of ill health. The lodge was very clean and comfortable with everything we could have wanted. The hosts were very helpful and welcoming and the scones, jam, cream and local apple juice was a lovely touch....More

The lodge is located in rural Devon and is the perfect place to have a peaceful and restful holiday. The nearest train station is Okehampton (about 17 miles to the South East) and buses do run to Holsworthy and Launceston, but essentially, you will need a car to get about, although there are local taxis and car hire companies - both are reasonably priced. Most supermarkets are happy to deliver to our lodges, some guests order their food to arrive on the day they arrive and we are happy to supervise delivery as long as we are aware in advance and it comes after Midday.
