Honeysuckle eco lodge’s big south-facing picture windows and veranda overlook grassland at Wheatland Farm, with views towards Dartmoor. It’s a great place for your Devon escape.
In spring and autumn it’s a fabulous and peaceful retreat, with birdsong at your doorstep. In summer, it’s a great spot for a family holiday. You can easily keep an eye on children as they play in the meadow, or you can borrow bikes or take a boat out on the pond.
Unobtrusive on the outside, inside Honeysuckle lodge is light, cosy and warm with upcycled style, such as the piano cover headboard and the cable drum coffee table. Read on for more information, or check availability.
