A beautiful lodge with accommodation which was on a par with a five star hotel. Hosts provided a welcoming cream tea and the week was very enjoyable indeed.
Great location and super accommodation.

We had a great week at Stapledon Lodge. Accommodation very stylish and comfortable. A free supply of logs was most welcome as the weather was cool and it was good to cozy up in the evenings. The owners were very helpful and nothing too much trouble. The cream tea on arrival was a nice touch and proper loose leaf tea too! The lodge is in a great location for exploring Exmoor and with Dulverton on your doorstep it's just a short drive to the shops or to indulge in a meal at Woods, definitely our favourite bar/restaurant. I went riding at Pine Lodge stables a short distance away which was a very good experience, super horses etc. We often go to Exmoor and wouldn't hesitate to stay at Stapledon Lodge again.
no thank you

Couldn't have had a more friendly helpful welcome. The home is splendid with high ceilings and full of character and we found it very peaceful and relaxing. Location was good and central for visiting lots of places. There was nothing we didn't like about it an excellent place to stay.
Comfortable, clean, country cottage - ideal for walking and dog

Ideal country cottage for walking - Devon was lovely and plenty to do and see. Good pub nearby in Dulverton - easy walk on nice day. Weather this year excellent - only summer we had in 2011 - which made the holiday. Lovely coastal walks. Cottage very clean and pretty well stocked.
