Perfect location in the lovely Devonshire countryside for our angling break, fishing at their well-stocked pool. It's also a great place to stay if you want a base to explore more areas of Devon.

Fantastic lodge, excellently clean and in a wonderful location. Helen and her husband were very helpful. Having milk and tea and coffee supplied was such a bonus and the cream tea, such a lovely gesture. Hope to stay with them again in the future. Would highly recommend.

My daughter and I stayed here for a couple of days so that we could explore the surrounding area. The lodge was extremely clean and comfortable.

I am a single Dad, and I stayed in one of the lodges, Mallard, with my sons aged 17 and 14. My bedroom had a delightful 4-poster bed. The living room was very spacious with a large sliding glass door opening onto a seating area with a fabulous view of the fishing lake. Bob, Helen…

Loved staying here although we were a bit disappointed when we were told the pool wasn't open because it was one of the main reasons we booked it. A carpet or a mat would've been nice as my feet were cold most the time. You definitely need slippers if you visit during winter.

Response from Helen:
Thankyou Mario for your review. We'd like to address your two points: We have eight lodges here at Blagdon Farm - all eight have fully fitted carpets in bedrooms, all eight have laminate flooring in the kitchen areas and five lodges have fitted carpets in the living areas - the other three, including the lodge you stayed in, have laminate flooring in the living areas. We have a lot of disabled and elderly guests (we specialise in disabled accommodation being rated M3A by the National Accessible Scheme) and it is for this reason that we do not have rugs or non-fitted carpets in the three lodges that have laminate flooring in living areas - they would constitute a trip hazard. Having said that we think, on reflection, that it is a good idea to have rugs available in winter for those guests that request one - so thankyou for your very useful suggestion - it is appreciated. Regarding the swimming pool we're sorry that you thought it would be available - however it is very clear on our Airbnb listing (and on our own website) that the pool is open between Easter and October and not in winter. We would like to open it in winter but the astronomic cost of oil these days precludes this. We are looking at alternative sources of pool heating - particularly the far more environmentally sensible and efficient wood pellet boiler although such an installation is at least a year or two away. Thankyou for staying with us - we're glad that overall you enjoyed it - North Devon, being an area unspoilt by mass tourism, has much to offer if you'd like to return here.

We had a wonderful experience at Blagdon Farm. We stayed here on the way to Cornwall, for 2 night with our 2 year old and just loved it. The pool is stunning and was very quiet when we stayed so we had the use of it ourselves. The cabin is well equipped and laid out. The vera…
