Really lovely location in the middle of nowhere with lake and gardens. 8 cabins and a few camping hook-ups. The cabin had everything we needed and more. The indoor pool and games room were ideal for the children particularly as we had bad weather. The owners were welcoming and friendly, cream tea on arrival! There was a little bar open some nights which was nice. Plenty to do in the area for all interests. Bear in mind if you take a dog it cannot be left in the cabin on it's own at all so you need to plan trips that include him.

“Beautiful idyllic setting”
Reviewed 25 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015

Not long got back from a very pleasant week at Blagdon Farm. Curlew was a very spacious, well equipped and very clean bungalow, the perfect base for a week exploring Devon and Cornwall with our two children. The owners were very welcoming and the scones, jam and clotted cream on arrival were lovely and very well received! The setting was absolutely stunning with beautiful idyllic views across the lake which we enjoyed walking around with our boys. The swimming pool and bar were also a great addition. I would highly recommend a stay at curlew and we hope to return in the future :)

Very surprised at the beautiful location, very nice accommodation and very nice,friendly, helpful hosts Sarah and Barry, we were also given scones with jam and cream plus a bottle of their own lovely apple juice apples from their own orchard, we took our dog and the enclosed area where she was allowed to go was quite sufficient for her needs, just a lovely holiday,thank you.

“Extra mile service”
Reviewed 30 December 2014 for a stay in December 2014

Beautifula dn modern accessible cottage that just had everything included. Lovely games room and swimming pool and excellent grounds and extremely dog friendly.

Arrived to find a xmas tree (decorated), xmas wreath, crackers and chocolate santas on the children's pillows! Home made mince pies and apple juice, clotted cream - felt totally spoilt. Ian and karen cannot do enough for you.

Totally recommend

“Amazing location”

What an amazing location . The lodges are spacious and well equipped . The good sized balcony just looks straight over the most beautiful view. Having breakfast or a glass of wine in the evening whilst watching the sun go down and listening to the distant owl hooting was incredible.
We did take our two well behaved working cocker spaniels on holiday as the website said dogs welcome. This is the only issue we would ever have with this holiday . Looking at the pictures I'd wrongly assumed the dogs could run freely but reality was if they put a paw outside the door without a lead the owners told us off quite sternly . There was An exercise paddock a few minutes walk away to be fair . They did point out that it is written in the rules when we arrived that dogs must be kept on leads at all times but we would absolutely not have chosen this location if we had been told BEFORE we had arrived. I totally understand that some properties would rather not have dogs .... But please don't pretend to be dog friendly when it obvious that isn't the case. After a slight argument with the owners they stormed off to phone the agency but later came back to apologise and said they would make it clear in the website and we could have our dogs off the lead this occasion however, knowing how much it was annoying them we didn't feel comfortable doing so even though they are extremely well behaved and we are very respectful of other people .

Saying this, we would totally recommend the property and have done already to anyone who doesn't have dogs or who doesn't mind the strict rules regarding dogs. It's the most beautiful peaceful location and so well kept.

Thank you very much for your review and we are really pleased that you liked the property and the location and that you would recommend it. We would like all guests to be reassured that we do welcome dogs in 3 of the lodges and on the caravan site, but we do ask that dogs are kept on a lead except in the dog walking field where they are very welcome to run free. The main reason for this rule is that we have a 1.5 acre fishing lake and to ensure the safety of all guests (particularly young children) we expect dogs to be kept under strict control. At times we have had a dozen dogs staying here and if they were all permitted to run free not only might it frighten those guests who may not be comfortable around dogs but it would also potentially endanger the dogs. We also recognise that it is almost impossible for owners to clear up after their dogs if they do not know their whereabouts - and there have been other occasions when twice a day we have had to clear up dog mess that has gone unnoticed by owners. Therefore when people arrive we politely ask all guests to respect our policy. We have only recently accepted dogs in Curlew lodge and unfortunately we had omitted to ask the agency to explain our policy on the website. However, it was only after asking the guests 3 times that they explained that they would not have chosen the property if they thought the dogs should be kept on a lead. When we realised the omission we rushed off to speak to the agency to ensure that this requirement was included on the website, and of course we apologised to the guests for the oversight. We pride ourselves on being as flexible as possible and this guest will remember that we agreed the day before they arrived to take a third dog during their stay at no extra charge. However, it is our responsibility to ensure that all our guests have a happy and relaxed holiday and we believe that asking dog owner guests to keep their dogs on a lead except in the dog walking field is a reasonable request and will ensure that all our guests have an enjoyable and carefree stay.
