Surrounded by the Devon Sculpture Park with its wilded spaces and stunning views across the Devon coast and countryside, The Lakehouse is the ideal spot to take time out – enjoy the magnificent sculptures and relax.

The Lakehouse is tucked away in a private woodland glade, with nothing but the sounds of nature for company. Floating above the lake, the decked veranda is the perfect spot for your morning yoga session or to enjoy a cocktail after a long day at the beach.

The space
Surrounded by tranquil gardens with stunning views across the East Devon coast and countryside, The Lakehouse is the ideal spot to take some time out. The 100 acre sculpture park includes wilded pastures, home to sheep, horses, and alpacas. There is an old tennis court, rowboats on the lake and take the time to walk around the park and check out the synergy of environment and art.

The Lakehouse is tucked away in a private woodland glade, within the 100 acres of this Devon estate. With nothing but the sounds of nature for company, the lakehouse is a place where time seems to stand still. It sits right against the lake with the wooded Haldon Hills behind it and the sculpture filled park and pastures below. A truly magical setting for your stay.

The lake itself was designed by Britain’s greatest gardener, Lancelot “Capability” Brown, and creates an incredible ambience, particularly at sunrise and sunset when light and colour are reflected across the clearing.

Appearing to float above the lake, the decked veranda is the perfect spot for your morning yoga session or to enjoy a sundowner after a long, hard day at the beach.

Inside, the open-plan kitchen and dining space have a minimalist bohemian style, while the panoramic floor-to-ceiling windows give spellbinding views across the lake.

The whole house comes complete with modern high-spec fittings, including a luxury wetroom and kitchen. In fact, the only thing you won’t find is an alarm clock – we think it’s much more agreeable to be woken by the birds’ dawn chorus coming through the window.

Sleeps up to 6 people - add Summerhouse at Devon Sculpture Park for another double bedroom.
1 king bedroom
1 twin bedroom with 4 bunks
1 family bathroom
2 row boats
Near beaches, golf, and cycling.

Enjoy outdoor eating, chaise lounges, row boat, and walks around the farm and woodlands. It is near lovely devon beaches and 15 minutes from Exeter.

Guest access
Enjoy the rowboats on the Lake. Take walks through the woodlands or around the rare animals and sculptures that roam around the park.

Other things to note
Always remember to close the gates behind you. We are working farm and that keeps the sheep in their place, the dogs in the garden etc.

My husband and I live on a 100 acre rewilding centre where we hope to inspire guests, visitors to live in an environmentally sound and sustainable way. We have 3 teenage children. I'm never happier than when I'm working on the garden or bringing together the artists, volunteers and wildlife enthusiasts that visit us with good food and drink.

During your stay
If you need help with anything or have any questions we are around to help. There is usually someone around. You can speak with the housekeeper, gardener or groundsman. Everyone is happy to give directions or advice. On the rare chance that no one is about send us a text as well as a call. The signal is great everywhere except on one side of the house behind the dome and out on the roads it can be iffy. If I'm there I'll get a text sooner then a call. I'll get back as soon as I'm in range again.
