April holiday at Trout River
Absolutely loved our stay at Trout River Lodge. We walked through the door and just thought wow. It was comfortable, clean, and decorated lovely with lots of lovely pictures on the walls, it has a real cosy feeling...a proper log cabin. What makes it perfect is being able to sit and watch roe deer from the cabin, walk to one of my favourite places (Fingle Bridge) and have easy access to the surrounding area and beautiful Dartmoor. Dog friendly too! We will be back - soon I hope 🤞
So pleased you loved Trout River Lodge and found it cosy and comfortable. It certainly is in a beautiful setting and is a great place for watching the local wildlife and enjoying riverside walks. Hope to see you again soon.
Fantastic well equipped property in a unique setting.
We arrived at the property, parked the car for the week, lovely walks on the door step especially the track to Fingle bridge where we enjoyed a Devonshire cream tea, on the way back several deer ran straight out in front of us, things do not get much better than that, had a great relaxing week & hope to return next year.
So pleased you loved our lodge and enjoyed your holiday. Sounds like you had a great time and seeing the deer is always a bonus. Hope to see you next year.
Fantastic location, spacious feel to the lodge and appreciated having the wifi.
Very peaceful location and the kids loved the freedom ofbeing able to ride their bikes around. It was nice being away from the mobile phone reception but it was great having the wifi access. This made it possbile to book activities online and do our research for days out.
It was a shame that the pool was not up and running but the river was the next best thing!
Will hopefully return again.
Really pleased to hear that you enjoyed our lodge and the wonderful setting away from it all. It really is the ideal place to escape the hustle and bustle of daily life and yet still be able to explore Dartmoor and Devon really easily. Nice for the kids, too, to be able to enjoy nature and old fashioned pursuits like paddling in the river. Hope we see you again in the future.
Excellent,if you want to get back to nature
From the precise directions to find the log cabin ,through the whole of our visit we were very pleased .
The cabin was warm and very clean on arrival .It was extremely well equipped with everything required to make our stay relaxed and enjoyable.The setting was idyllic with the opportunity to walk and enjoy the wild life .It was an ideal base for exploring Dartmoor .
Our booking covered ages from 3 generations ,the overall opinion shared by us all is we wouldn’t hesitate to stay here again .The addition of WiFi was a major plus with the younger of the group
Thank you for your positive review of our lodge Katrina and we are so pleased that you all enjoyed the lodge and had a wonderful holiday. Do hope you will be able to visit again in the future.
We (family of 5 - kids 11 and 13 + a cockerpoo) have just returned from a weeks break at Trout River Lodge. I must say that we had a fantastic relaxing break. The Lodge is very clean and has all the creature comforts needed for your holiday. The scenery is outstanding and you really feel that you are in the heart of the Dartmoor wilderness. Fantastic walks on your doorstep, we did the Fingle Bridge walk (1 hour each way) with a 2 hour stop at the pub (which has great food and is picture card perfect) a number of times. The kids were gutted at first that there was no mobile or Internet but had completely forgoten at the end of the week after embracing the nature and wildlife. Wife and myself commented on how it gave us memories of how holidays were when we were kids.
The South Devon coast is approx. one hour's drive away. Here you can find
estuaries such as Salcombe, Dartmouth, Teignmouth - ideal for boat trips, sandy beaches like Blackpool Sands with its superb cafe, Bantham - a surfing paradise and Bigbury where you can walk across the sands to Burgh Island. There are also quiet coves and rock pools and for walkers there is the endless coastal path with glorious views of the sea at every step.
Although hidden in this quiet corner of Dartmoor access is very easy. Follow the M5 and then A30 which has a junction at Cheriton Bishop only 10 minutes from the lodge. The port of Plymouth is approximately an hour away and Exeter airport approximately half an hour away by car.
The lodge is located in the Dartmoor National Park. Moretonhampstead with numerous shops, banks, etc. is 10 minutes drive away. Dunsford and Fingle Bridge, both with excellent pubs, are either 10 minutes by car or about one hour by foot along the river. There is a good village shop in Cheriton Bishop 10 minutes by car. Castle Drogo, a National Trust property, is 15 minutes by car or 1.5 hours on foot from the lodge. Chagford and Bovey Tracey are 20 minutes by car.
