There’s something about retreating to a timber-clad lodge in the sun-dappled woodland that we can’t get enough of. Peaceful, homely and a little bit luxurious, this place is the ultimate decompression destination. Inside, it’s unfussy yet cosy. There’s a stylish wood-burner to keep your toes warm and a big, brown leather sofa for curling up with a mug of hot tea in the evenings. The primary bedroom feels romantic with its elegant four-poster bed and the sunken hot tub on the decking adds a touch of luxury. Make your favourite meals in the fully-appointed kitchen and enjoy among six acres of forest, accompanied by views of the lake. In the afternoon, take a wander through the trees, sit and listen to the sweet birdsong or enjoy a spot of fishing. If you’re keen to explore further afield, the ancient city of Exeter is a fifteen-minute drive away. Visit the Gothic cathedral or enjoy a drink in the sunshine by the quayside.
