About the location

This beautiful part of South Devon is perfect for activities on land and on the water. There are regular sailing activities from Salcombe during peak season - Mackeral fishing is a favourite. Visitors can hire kayaks or learn to surf on the beach at Bantham. The lodge is located in an area where there is an abundance of wildlife. Guests keen on wildlife will regularly see buzzards, kestrels, peregrine falcons, buntings, yellow hammers, skylarks, the rare but locally common cirl bunting, red deer and hares - often from the lodge itself. Occasionally you might also see gannets along the coast.

Malborough, the closest village with a supermarket, is 1.5 miles by car or a 1 mile cross country walk. Salcombe is 4 miles away and has a range of boutique shops, pubs and restaurants. Kingsbridge is 5 miles away and has an excellent range of local shops, supermarkets, pubs and restaurants.

Thurlestone Golf Club is within a short drive of the lodge and enjoys a spectacular course right above the sea. Dartmouth Golf & Country Club is a 25 minute drive and offers 2 courses; the 18-hole 7200 yard par 72 Championship Course and the 9-hole, 2252 yard, par 33 Dartmouth Course. Bigbury is another coastal golf course a short drive away and offers 18-holes, 6000-yards, par-70, with stunning views in all directions.
