Click on any picture to enlarge it. Above part of the brochure advertising these lodges, you can also see a report by going to Clovelly Lakeside Lodges and then the link for westward Ho Ho ho. Below the much loved bathroom with its shower/ bath/Jacuzzi/sauna/ Radio/coloured lights. For anyone who thinks this holiday is only about fishing, you would be seriously wrong its got loads of walks and the birdwatching is fantastic,
This picture below of our bedroom has a window that overlooks the lake.
Below taken from just inside the door by the TV, our pine covered fully equiped kitchen.
Before I go any further I must apologise for the length of this blog but I just didn't know which photo's to leave out. Below a picture of the next lake down and its 4 brand new lodges, these are not on the brochure picture yet.

Below, across the lake to one of the original lodges, these sleep 4-6 and have open plan layouts with a traditional upstairs.
Our lodge taken from next doors Bar-B-Q area, you can see how close you are to the lakes.For any fishermen reading this, it fishes quite well and is kept private for lodge guests only.
Below by the main patio door showing the large veranda and all the fishing gear.
This view is taken from the rear of the lodge, right by one of the fishing spots.Notice that the next lodge is a full 130mtrs away.
Below the lodge taken fom the garden and Bar-B- Q area, with Me, Sue David and Mojo.

Back in September Sue, me David, Peter and Karen Chadwick all went on holiday to Clovelly in N Devon for a week to some luxury pine lodges, the lodge we had slept 6 with two bedrooms and a sofa bed. The site contains 15 pine built, luxury lodges built around 3 lakes, there are actually 6 lakes available to fish but the others are 250 yds (240 mtrs)away. These lodges are the ultimate in comfort combined with durability for fishermens use. They vary in size sleeping between 2 and 10 people. They contain full size cooker, full size fridge and separate freezer + a microwave and dishwasher, central heating and lastly but certainly not least is the bathroom, this contains a huge double bath with jacuzzi features, plus a sauna, it has the ability to spray water from up to 16 jets from all directions it incorporates 5 different coloured light settings these along with a stereo radio with 14 channels make it like a film set (my grandson was in there 35 mins) the lodges are all double glazed.On the outside is a large fully enclosed porch (to keep in the dogs or kids) with fully lit decking area and a lovely big sliding patio door. Outside on the grass is your own Barbeque, also on site is a fully equipped laundry room with washers and driers (all free). Inside all is clean tidy and very functional and comes with all cleaning materials, washing up liquid, dishwasher tablets, toilet rolls, full bedding, hand and bath towels in fact every thing you could possibly need. The owner Peter and his staff could not be more friendly and nothing is too much trouble, we all rated it 5 out of 5, to see this is true, try reading the comments books left in every cabin, our book contained entries from 5 different families who had been back four times and loads had been back two and three times, (it was our second visit). We couldn't believe the prices either they are very very reasonable, especially out of the main holiday season.

I remember going to Clovelly and falling in love with it. I seem to remember a donkey or pony walking up the street? It reminded me of durham with the cobbles. It was almost tropical when we got right down yet before we went in it was blowing a gale. I need to re-visit, my memory is hazy!
