This was our second visit to the Summer Lodge and we'll definitely visit again. The rural setting is perfect, and the Lodge with it's spaceous grounds and comfortable rooms more than lives up to it. Such amazing views all around as well! Once of those places where its so peaceful and properly dark at night just as it should be!
Tim and Ady give such a warm and friendly welcome and were so helpful, especially now we have a little one. Tim also cooks up a great breakfast too.
Despite it's rural location, well out of the way of the usual hustle and bustle, it's not too remote either - the Tucker's Arms is nearby for good food, and places of interest such as Lyme Regis, Axminister and other coastal villages are just a few miles away.
Would recommend to anyone wanting a relaxing country break.

Room Tip: The Annex is the most spaceous room if you have a family.

We booked our room at Summer Lodge a week before we went - Tim & Ady responded to emails v promptly and were so helpful in answering all our random questions before our visit. They put us in the 'music room' which was perfect for us and our 2 year old daughter. We had such a relaxing 6 day stay with them - Tim & Ady couldnt be more accomodating to us and our daughter - nothing was too much trouble - they are both so relaxed and friendly that you immediately feel at home. The setting is perfect if you 'want to get away from it all'....the lodge is surrounded by beautiful devon countryside dotted with cows and sheep. And the location is great for daytrips to various beaches, market towns etc - we could have stayed there much longer. Highly recommended....

I proposed to my girlfriend last weekend and the terrible weather got in the way of our plans. We were due to go to the River Cottage barbecue on Saturday, but the event was cancelled due to flooding. We were really disappointed and contemplated going home, as road closures prevented us going visiting the surrounding area. That Saturday evening, I gota phone call from Tim Henderson, who runs the lodge. He had spoken to the local village pub and they opened the restaurant for my fiancee and I - and were greeted with champagne. We were both really touched by this and it made our weekend. Thank you. You have to stay there. The setting is beautiful, the accommodation luxurious and the hosts lovely.

Was on way back from Cornwall to London and we decided to break the journey by stopping here for a night and it turned out to be the highlight of our week away. The room was absolutely first class, the service exceptional and the view when you open the curtains in the morning was just so pretty it brings tears to your eyes. My partner and i arrived around 6pm and the owner Tim very kindly made us arrangements to eat at the local village pub. We had to walk through a couple of fields to get there (about 5 minute walk) and that just added to the charm. Living in the city makes me crave fields and sheep and peace and we had it all in abundance here. On to the meal in the pub- well we have eaten in many michelin starred restaurants around the UK and we both agreed that this pub meal was right up there. The most enjoyable meal i have had for years. The pub itself is 12th century and if you ever have the honour of eating there you simply must have the pork tenderloin. Pork heaven!!
Overall - cant rate the experience of Summer Lodge highly enough. Keep doing what you are doing Tim - its a real winner. We will be back for sure. Paul and Gina

We really enjoyed our stay here and wish we'd stayed for 2 nights. We stayed in the music room which was really spacious and comfortable. We loved the privacy it gave us and nice touches like fresh milk and wine glasses set out for you to use. The garden and outlook is lovely.
Tim and Ady are very friendly and hospitable whilst giving you space to relax. This was graet for us to have some time out as a couple but it would also really suit us again if we returned with our twins.

The breakfast was really tasty and nicely cooked. We would definitely like to come back and try out the village pub.
