Location description from owner

The Devon region

West Country and Hartland peninsula region.

This region of north Devon and Cornwall is a lightly populated area of outstanding natural beauty. The panoramic sequence of tiny ports and estuaries surrounded by high rocky cliffs with many waterfalls gives way to open moorland and ancient forest as you travel inland. Close to the Atlantic coastline with the Bristol Channel to the north the Hartland peninsula also has spectacular scenery. All along this coastline from the coastal pathway you will see waterfalls tumbling onto rocky shores. In the valleys, lichens and wild flowers grow and there are many wild birds and other animals especially during spring and summer.

Don't miss the village of Clovelly, about 15 minutes drive away, with its steep cobbled paths and 'roads' leading to the 14th century natural harbour.

At the Tamar Lakes there is a water-sports centre offering sailing, windsurfing and canoeing. Rowing boats are also available for hire.

The Tarka Trail is a wonderful bike riding route and there are many local lanes to explore too.

Surfing is a popular pastime at many of these beaches - British Surfing Association approved tuition is available at Bude.

Shore fishing is accessible from Clovelly, Hartland Quay and Appledore and sea fishing trips go out from Clovelly.

Catch the Oldenburg from Clovelly or Bideford Quay to visit Lundy island, owned by the National Trust. Spend the day walking on the many tracks and footpaths observing the marine birds especially puffins, also seals and possibly basking sharks offshore.

For those who enjoy visiting historic houses and gardens a visit to Hartland Abbey, Tapley House, Arlington Court, RHS Rosemoor Gardens and Marwood Gardens are all within easy reach. A longer journey will enable you to visit The Lost Gardens of Heligan or the Eden Project, both near St Austell.

There are many breathtaking walks including stretches of the Southwest Coastal Path, Tarka Country, Exmoor, Bodmin Moor and Dartmoor together with local country and woodland paths . A few local favourites are Bucks Mill, Broad Parkham, Peppercombe, Clovelly, Mouth Mill, Brownsham, Hartland Quay, Stoke, Hartland Point, and Bude's canal and cliffs.

Hartland Forest Golf and Leisure Parc

Valley View is on a rural site within Hartland Forest, just 5 miles inland from the coast but close to the Atlantic highway enabling easy access to local beaches, parks and areas of interest and of course further afield.

You are quite likely to see wild red deer within the 1000 acres of the forest. The geological features around Hartland Quay are very impressive; a visit to the lighthouse at Hartland Point is a must to see one of the many partially submerged wrecks on the rocks.

Children will be happy to play all day on the sand at Crooklets beach, Bude with its lifeguarded open-air sea water pool (in season) and cafe's. Other local beaches and coves include Sandymouth Bay, Duck Pool, Bucks Mill, Northcott Mouth and Summerleaze. Further afield but well worth the effort are Widemouth Bay and in the opposite direction travelling east, Westward Ho!, the only English town to be named after a book, Instow, Braunton and Saunton Sands. Also try to visit the rock tunnels at Ilfracombe (charges apply) and the beaches of Woolacombe and Croyde.

Coarse fishing locations in addition to the free private lakes adjacent to Hartland Forest site include the Upper Tamar Lake, Jennetts, Melbury and Darracott reservoirs and trout fishing is available at Roadford and Colliford Lakes.

Nearby golf courses include Bude ( Links ), Holsworthy, Royal North Devon ( Links ), Great Torrington, Libbaton, Highbullen and Saunton ( Links ).

If you are in need of 'retail therapy' the Atlantic Village just this side of Bideford has many factory outlets as well as a larger ASDA store.

Artists will enjoy the Burton Art Gallery at Bideford. There are also a number of craft studios and local potteries in the villages around.

Some local stables offer horse riding along the coastal paths or cross country.

Local hostelries with real ales in historic surroundings are all a short journey from the lodge: Here are some suggestions;

Bell Inn; Parkham. Hart Inn; Hartland. Kings Arms; Hartland. Old Smithy Inn; Welcombe. West Country Inn; Bursdon Moor. Hoops Inn; Horns Cross. Bush Inn; Morwenstow. London Inn; Kilkhampton

“Absolutely fantastic”

Reviewed 20 Jul 2015

Well,what can I say. Travelled to Valley View with my wife and daughter. An absolutely stunning location with a log cabin to match. Everything you could want is supplied in the lodge from utensils,right through to bedding and towels. Also on site,which is exclusive to residents,are two fishing lakes. Very peaceful surroundings,holding common and mirror carp up to a whopping 24lb 6oz which I managed to catch plus tench which looked huge though I can't verify the weight as I only fished for the carp. I'm sure there are fish up to the 30lb mark as you can see them cruising in the middle of the lake. Probably glad I didn't get into one of these as the plus twentys I caught fought well above their weight. A 22lb mirror took nearly 40 minutes to land. Exhausting!!! All in all a fantastic holiday in a great location with some unbelievable fishing. Will definitely be returning.

Thank you for this very positive review. We are very proud of our fishing lakes and wish to congratulate our guest on his catch.
