A total last minute decision to travel to Devon as a family of 4 (2 kids aged 6 & 2) from Northern Ireland and the sheer luck and fortune to have found Sea View Lodge in Cockwood was the perfect start to our holiday. The accommodation is beyond perfect, so well thought through by the owners Mike and Karen, as to the finish within the bungalow. It is by far the cleanest and most 'home from home' stay we have had anywhere! Cockwood is such a beautiful place to base yourself and the location of the Lodge next to a meadow/forest and yet at the same time having a beautiful sea view is so perfect. Our kids loved running around in the garden care free and enjoyed the vast array of wildlife each day. We were made feel so welcome by the owners and we genuinely felt at home here, which when travelling with young children makes everything so much more relaxed and enjoyable. We travelled with our own car which we were able to park easily and securely in off road parking next to the Lodge. Local and tourist information was in abundance within the Lodge and Karen and Mike were really helpful to talk to on where, when and what to do. Devon is a beautiful area to visit, in particular we loved Brixham,Paignton and Dartmouth. We had quite a few meals in the Anchor in Cockwood. Loved loved the food there! Overall, we recommend so highly and one thing for sure is that we will return! :)
Sea View Lodge is a wonderful place for a family holiday. The owners are very friendly and welcoming and the lodge itself is perfect in every way. The view from the garden and the wildlife you can see are really amazing! This is the best place we have ever stayed on holiday. We will definitely be booking again!
When we arrived at the property we were shown around by the owners who advised us of all we needed to know. The property is kept immaculately clean.
Everything you could possibly need for cooking is provided. There is a washing machine and a dishwasher.
The owners were very friendly and welcoming but were never intrusive.
The views from the bungalow are spectacular and the surrounding countryside is beautiful, There are plenty of rabbits around the bungalow in the morning and evening. On different occasions we saw a deer and a fox in the field beyond the bungalow.
At dusk, If you go outside to the gate, you will hear a cacophony of birds and see them swarming in the treetops.
The location is excellent as there are so many places to visit without having to travel too far. Powderham Castle, which is just a couple of villages away is worth a visit.
There are two pubs just a short walk down the hill in Cockwod, which provide food.
It is very easy to get across to Exmouth, on the foot ferry, at Starcross which is just outside Cockwood.
We really enjoyed our stay and will be back.
