This rustic, single-storey lodge overlooks a beautiful lake and is set in woodland within the grounds of the owner's trout farm. Set just half a mile from the picturesque hamlet of Sheldon, and seven miles from Honiton, this property can sleep two people

Lakeside Cabin is a rustic lodge which overlooks a beautiful lake and is set in woodland within the grounds of the owner's trout farm. Set just half a mile from the picturesque hamlet of Sheldon, and seven miles from Honiton, this property can sleep two people. This all ground floor property has a double bedroom, a shower room and an open plan living area with a kitchen, dining area and sitting area.

Outside there is ample off road parking and a covered veranda with furniture, leading to a large lawned area and an unfenced lake just 15 yards away. There is also private trout fishing available in the lake at an extra charge (please contact the owner for more information, there is a 10% reduction for guests). Lakeside Cabin is a wonderful holiday base and is ideal for fans of fishing.


This property is no more than a Large GARDEN Shed
Nothing it is out in the wilderness. To get to the Cabin you have to walk along a gravel path, up some gravel steeps for about 50 yds then to enter the Shed there are wooden steps with NO hand rail,"very dangerous". Inside it has to be seen to be believe Divided into 3 rooms. Bedroom with no wardrobe. Bathroom" wash basin" so small only fit for washing hands.Kitchen come living area Small picnic table with two fold up chairs. This property is an absolute disaster as we are used to staying in Lodges in various destinations. We decided to leave tried to contact the owner without success, contacted "Sykes Cottages" for help but not very helpful . We ended up staying at a Travel Lodge for the night The owner has refused to refund our money which is a disgrace. This is our holiday money lost under false pretences

Peace and quiet
Very enjoyable few days spent here. Clean ,, warm , well appointed and a wonderful setting. The owners have put a lot of love and attention into this property and the area itself and deserve much praise for their efforts. We came seeking peace and quiet and got it. Would certainly return.

Escape from it all break...
We've just come back from 7 nights stay at this lovely lodge, it has all the amenities you need to comfortably stay for your desired break, the view from the lodge over the lake is amazing and there is plenty of wildlife to see, we were privileged to see the elusive Kingfisher whilst there as well as several Hawks, Yellow Wagtails, Dragon Flies, a Mole which was lost by the roadside... lol and parachutists from nearby Dunkerswell and an air display from the stunt plane, oh and plenty of Trout who live in the lake. There are plenty of places to visit and the lodge is conveniently located within only a few miles of either the M5 or A303. If you happen to belong to the National Trust you will find Killerton House about 7 miles down the road, and also Knightshayes, Barrington Court and Monticute House all within an hours drive. There is also Quad biking, horse riding, a gliding school, the Landrover experience and plenty of walks to experience if you like. To gain access to the lodge you will need to drive down a small lane with a few limited passing points, we stayed there 7 nights and only encountered one vehicle coming the other way. There is no parking next to this lodge but there is a small car park very close to it, it wasn't a problem for us but do expect to make a couple of trips with your luggage. There is no mobile phone coverage at the lodge, we were aware of this when we booked and had no problem with it, in fact it was a huge bonus and we were able to relax fully and really feel free from the outside world. If you really can't live without your mobile constantly going off every five seconds then this location is not for you :-), of course if you need your fix, then you only need to drive a few miles up the road and you're back in the real world.... lol
