Buttercups lodge

£276 - £675 GBP


Wind down and relax in a real log cabin, with superb views across miles of rolling Devon countryside. It’s wonderful to come back to peace and tranquility after a busy day of holiday enjoyment and at night we enjoy the most incredible black skies as there’s very little light pollution.

Buttercups is an extremely comfortable self-catering holiday lodge with outstanding south-facing views of Dartmoor and is the middle of the three lodges. The lodge has recently had a kitchen upgrade to include a tall fridge/freezer, a dishwasher and additional storage and is pet-friendly and welcomes up to 2 well-behaved small to medium sized dogs.  There’s plenty of room around the lodge and in the neighbouring fields to exercise your dog.

The main bedroom has a double bed and the second bedroom is a twin with two 3ft beds with memory foam mattresses.

This is an amazing place for wildlife including deer and rabbits and birdlife is varied and abundant.

For more details see lodge facilities below, or call/text 07890 072515 or 01409 231390, or email us.

Just returned from a week at Buttercup lodge and we loved it perfect tranquil location for some much needed R&R lovely to wake up and sit outside taking in the views with a coffee. Everything was perfect for us in the lodge and Andrew and Sally were great hosts will definitely be returning one day.

Amazing views. Tip-top chalet !
We loved everything about the chalet from its layout to linen and towels provided. The hosts have thought everything through for utter ease, fridge, freezer, cutlery, crockery, even bin bags, tea towels and washing up liquid. They were also on hand during our stay for any questions. The main windows and doors in the living space all face forward onto uninterrupted views. It’s just outstanding. When we went, the buttercups were filling the meadow in abundance, it was like a painting . We enjoyed local beaches namely Bude and some nearby attractions ... riverdart country park ( 1hr) as well as Exeter. We were lucky with a sunny week and I think this added to the experience of enjoying the settling to its fullest.

Location is perfect to some great attractions. An hours drive at the most. Buttercups lodge was perfectly equipped for our family, 2 adults, 2 kids 12 and 17 and our dog. FREE WiFi! Laundry facilities 30 sec walk from lodge. Very very peaceful at night, we all slept very soundly the 7 days we were there. Grass area surrounding the lodges has table tennis, swing ball, badminton and most garden games available and freely accessible. GAS BBQ is available to use between the three lodges. There are paddocks surrounding the lodges and their horses love apples and carrots so be sure to go equipped. Nemo and Rosie are their names. The lodge itself was very clean and very comfortable and had everything you needed to cook for yourselves. The beds were lovely and comfy. Beautiful views from the lodges. Sally and Andrew are there should you need them, otherwise you just saw them going about their daily lives. Lovely place and we will return.

Peaceful Getaway
Arrived to discover the accommodation was a truly wonderful traditional log cabin with all mod cons and the most spectacular view across to Dartmoor. Andrew gave us a warm friendly welcome with some useful advice on local walks. The location did not disappoint and enabled us to fully relax in the beautiful Devon countryside. We heartily recommend this accommodation for those seeking a good central base with easy access to the moors and the coast. We would hope to return in the not to distant future.
