My husband and I stayed at Eastern Lodge while attending a wedding in nearby Newton Ferrers and we couldn't have been happier. The romantic 19th Century property on the Membland estate is simply charming - a bit like something out of a fairy tale with its interesting shapes and crooked chimney. Our hostess Salka was incredibly welcoming and attended to our every need. Her scrumptious breakfast and signature scrambled eggs with feta, tomatoes and fresh herbs worth the visit alone! We stayed in the round Gatekeepers Room and woke up to a stunning sea view, which included Burgh Island where we got married - perfect! Our friends stayed in the other two rooms and were equally happy with their accommodation. This is a B&B with a difference and not to be missed.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Eastern Lodge, the B&B with the wonky chimney, was built as a gatehouse in 1883 by Edward Baring, the acclaimed banker. Set in beautiful surroundings, it overlooks the sea and Dartmoor, yet Plymouth is only 10 miles away. Walk up and down the coastal path, find beautiful little coves of tranquility before settling down to a luxurious cream tea in the legendry teashop of Newton Ferrers or have a gorgeous dinner at the Ship Inn in Noss Mayo, known to the locals as Happy Valley. ... more less
