There is also a kitchenette on the first floor. Outside there is off road parking and a decked area with private hot tub, as well as access to the acres of grounds.

A beautiful well equipped lodge in gorgeous surroundings.. Gemma and Lloyd were amazing. Nothing was too much trouble for Gemma. She was extremely friendly and made us feel right at home from the moment we arrived. We had lots of beautiful walks and our local pub was in walking distance and was lovely. The children had a great time blackberry picking and exploring. We will definitely be returning. Thank you for a wonderful, relaxing and memorable holiday x

This was our second stay at Shells Cottages, We loved our stay at Hazel Lodge, we had another party stay in Ash at the same time.. The use of the gardens was especially brilliant with having 7 children with us. We enjoyed the hot tub in the evening :) Gemma did a great job of welcoming us and making sure we had everything we needed. We can't fault the accommodation!

The lodge was great, really clean and well equipped.. We spent most of the time in the garden so really nice to find all the outside loungers. The one problem we had with all the bedrooms was how light they are in the morning. We had hoped for a relaxing lie in, but we were up with the sun. Black out blinds definitely needed! (Also maybe some wd40 on the creaky doors!) We walked to The White Horse on the Saturday evening, really recommend it there.

Perhaps warn people staying at the property that bin liners aren't provided? We checked r.e. washing up liquid and toilet rolls, but might want to add this to the info too?

We are just about to end our week stay at 'Hazel Lodge'. We have had a fantastic time. The lodge is perfect, the hot tub is fab and the grounds are beautiful. Having a washing machine has been so great, meaning we don't go home with that feeling of all the dirty washing to do!! Gemma the manager was friendly, kind and always available to help. We will definately be back and would highly recommend to all Cannot fault a thing, has been a perfect end to our Summer holiday as a family. Thank you

Honestly couldn't praise this place enough, there were 7 of us and a dog staying in the lodge and found the split upstairs and downstairs gave the group plenty of space. The hot tub was amazing and as another reviewer states it does back onto another hottub,however, it's not overlooked as there is a 20 foot wall between the 2 and when you're in the hot tub you can't hear next door. Staff were really friendly and helpful and checked in that everything was OK throughout our stay and also recommended local places to eat and visit when asked. Great pub near by that is dog friendly, and plenty of local activities such as walks, the castle, harbour etc. Overall would certainly recommend staying here if you want a relaxing holiday with plenty to do if you don't mind 10 minutes in the car.

We wanted to stay somewhere offering a little bit of luxury and were not disappointed at Hazel Lodge. It is part of a small holiday complex with other lodges in a semi rural location but near to the coast and Exmoor. The lodge was fitted to a high standard and we felt that there was no expense spared on the oak furniture in the dining room and the kitchen was well-equipped, although we did only have breakfast there. The hot tub was great to come back to in the evening after a day out walking or cycling. We found the manager to be welcoming and helpful and she recommended some good local eateries and places to visit. Having read the previous review about paying a deposit for the Playstation controller, we were surprised at this guests disappointment as we have found this to be the case at other properties we have stayed in. We happily paid our deposit which was returned when we returned the controllers at the end of our stay. Although we did not take a dog with us it is a great location for people with dogs and obviously they need to be kept on a lead in consideration of other people staying. There are lots of good walks in the area for those with or without a dog. We had a great weekend away and hope to return next year.

Needed a much needed break away from a hectic job, so booked this lodge because of the hot tub and local amenities. The location is great for fantastic walks on the edge of the Brendon Hills and there is a great pub at the top of the hill. The accommodation was excellent. It was spotlessly clean. It was great we could take our two dogs who enjoyed the gardens immensely. The kitchen was fully equipped with everything you could need, not that we did much cooking. There is a great Indian down the road that delivers! It was reassuring to know that the hot tubs are completely emptied and cleaned after every guest. Overall a great stay and would like to thank the hosts Lynn and Lloyd for a lovely getaway!

It was a lovely lodge that was fully equipped with everything one needed. The lodge was very clean and in a very good location for seeing the local attractions.

Hazel Lodge was one of the cleanest and best kept properties we have ever holidayed in. The garden was kept really well and the hot tub was fantastic. It was away from it all and yet close to some lovely places to visit. It really is a very special place and somewhere to relax and unwind. We really enjoyed our stay and would recommend.

The cottage was comfortable, homely and clean with more than enough of everything we needed. In particular we found the bed very comfortable and absolutely loved the hot tub every night. Amazing. The surroundings were peaceful; we slept so well and awoke to fabulous views. The weather was too warm for the wood burning stove but would be lovely in cooler weather. Lots of beautiful places nearby to visit. Best holiday I have ever had!

Hazel lodge was great and very clean. It was lovely. I would love to go back as I and the rest of our group enjoyed it very much. Lots to see and do around the area. Great that we could take our dogs too. The hot tub was amazing. Came home very relaxed after a great break.

The garden area was fantastic for our 2 year old and for the dog too. Loved the hot tub! Comfortable beds, well equipped cottage and perfect for 2 families.
Mrs Abell

The hot tub was a massive plus, it is top of the range and really well maintained. The location was perfect for our needs - golf, beach, and space for our 3 year old to play in the garden, and the recommendation of Doniford Farm was a great hit. The accommodation was the perfect size for our family.

Clean, comfortable and well appointed accommodation set in a quiet location. The hot tub was a real treat and the owners have obviously invested in good quality fixtures, fittings and furniture.
Miss Lewis

We enjoyed our stay very much. The best part for us was having a hot tub, it was a home from home experience. The accommodation had everything we needed and was very well equipped, the bedrooms and bathrooms were lovely, the front room is made very cosy with the wood burner. I will be recommending this property to other friends and family members. All in all, it was a great weekend

The Lodge was very clean, warm and welcoming. The lodge was furnished to an excellent standard and guidelines could be found to use the equipment and find our way around the local area. We were local to the supermarket and there was plenty of do even over the Christmas period.

Being able to spend time together as a family and having our own space when we needed it.it was great. The children loved visiting the zoo which was only a short walk away; so we did not have to use the car. We enjoyed relaxing in the hot tub very much.

Lovely chalet. It is to a very high standard. We were very impressed. The hot-tub was well maintained and spotlessly clean. We would rebook.
Mrs Boswell

Amazing property, with everything you would need for two families staying there. It was in immaculate condition when we arrived, and the owner was very helpful and always available for assistance with local information, as well as things to do with the cottage. The location was great for local, quiet villages and beaches, but within easy reach of Minehead for the large supermarkets and chain shops.

We spent an amazing week here - we were two families, 4 adults, 4 children (aged 4-7) and the lodge was perfect! Inside was a comfortable living area with a sofa big enough for all 8 of us, a dining area with a table that sat 8 and a well equipped kitchen. The downstairs bathroom was stunning (wet room) and the two bedrooms were perfect for one of the families (a double and a twin). Upstairs (accessed by an external staircase) were two twin rooms seperated by a lovely bathroom (with shower) and a kitchenette (toaster, 2 ring hob, kettle, sink) - perfect for a second family! The only downside to the upstairs was that one couple had to sleep in twin beds rather than a double but we got round that!!! ;o) The grounds were perfect for the kids to run around in without us worrying about traffic or them running off, there was a BBQ and the hot tub was AMAZING!!! Locally there were lots of things to explore, lots of little villages and quiet local beaches while Minehead (for Morrisons and Tesco) was only a 15min drive away - Tropiquaria across the road was fun and the monkeys were a fun alarm call!!!! We got a take-away one evening from Mama Chins in Watchett (they deliver and you can pay by card) and it was the best Chinese I've had in a long time! Overall an amazing holiday in an amazing lodge, looking into booking again next year....

We had a fantastic time at Hazel Lodge. The owner was very friendly and happy to offer help with the lodge in a excellent condition when we arrived. The inside of the property was very modern and perfect for our holiday party. We loved the hot tub and was pleased to see that it was thoroughly cleaned every single morning. It is the perfect base for a holiday with the main beaches short drives away and plenty to do locally too.
