The Blagdon Farm complex is great. A nice pool, games room and bar area. The real attraction for most will likely be the Coarse Fishing lake, which is easily accessible from the lodge. It seems well stocked with fish, which are in great condition and...More

Getting around
The lodge is located in rural Devon and is the perfect place to have a peaceful and restful holiday. The nearest train station is Okehampton (about 17 miles to the South East) and buses do run to Holsworthy and Launceston, but essentially, you will need a car to get about, although there are local taxis and car hire companies - both are reasonably priced. Most supermarkets are happy to deliver to our lodges, some guests order their food to arrive on the day they arrive and we are happy to supervise delivery as long as we are aware in advance and it comes after Midday.
