Visitor Reviews of Exmoor Gate Lodges

Michelle Watson
We wanted to try a lodge holiday and chose Exmoor Gate as it seemed to tick all the boxes for us with location and accommodation. We were not disappointed at all and had a really nice time. The lodge was huge with an excellent kitchen and lovely big bed in the master bedroom. We had chosen the Exmoor Gate Lodge Plus so we also had hot tub and this really made the holiday for us.

Loved every second spent at Exmoor Gate Lodge. We stayed in Dunkery Lodge and couldn't fault it. Lovely private outside space with a fabulous hot tub, surrounded by woods and fields. Very clean and tidy with everything you could need. Will definitely be back. Thank you Diane and Gary for a fantastic week.

I felt it was a little expensive for 2 people but I understand that it was a lodge accommodated 5 people, so was priced accordingly. It was spotlessly clean on arrival and everything kept in good working order throughout our stay. (The bathroom heater was not working on our arrival but was quickly repaired).

Recommend this holiday cottage to anyone. We are so relaxed we didn't want to come home.

Date of stay: 9th August 2019
We had a wonderful short break at Exmoor gate. The lodge was really clean and perfectly well equipped. Super hot tub and the location was just idyllic being right next to fields and woodland. Gary was a great, super helpful and responsive staff, nothing was too much trouble and he was full of intonation about local walks and places to eat/drink and get supplies. We loved having private use of the pool and the games room was a bonus too. We would definitely return, thanks for a great holiday.
Lynn, Stafford
Date of stay: 8th July 2019

Date of stay: 7th July 2019
Absolutely brilliant holiday. Owners were so friendly, engaging and helpful with lots of advice about things to do in the area even with a young baby!
The lodge was lovely and big and the hot tub was a real treat! We loved being able to book the pool for just the three of us and the games room was great. It was so peaceful and we would recommend it to anyone!

Date of stay: 5th July 2019
Very fortunate with the weather. Lovely setting very quiet. We probably did not take advantage of the extras on offer such as pool because the time passed too quickly.

A great place to explore Exmoor and the surrounds. Ideally located for both North and South Devon coasts and the whole of Exmoor.
The lodge was clean, tidy and very well presented, excellent views of the hills across the valley and the hot tub which was very private looked out over open woodland.
All in all and great stay

Brilliant had the best time ever
Absolutely amazing stay.The whole place is beautiful and the staff members are super friendly.
Great place. Everything you could want within the lodge. Owners/staff very friendly and helpful.
Lovely cottage in a beautiful location. Dog friendly, with a fantastic private hot tub in the courtyard. Would highly recommend.
We had a lovely weekend at exmoor Lodge, it was for my husbands birthday, and we could not of been made to feel more welcome. Would def recommend a visit.
Lovely lodge with great hotbtub in a good location. Well looked after by our hosts. Will definitely be returning.
We had a wonderful mid week break at the lodges. Exceptionaly clean and the hot tub was great. The local pub The Rock served some of the best food we have ever had. If you want to find a place to syat in Mirror water, this is it. 100/100. John and Nhu from Vietnam
Very friendly and helpful staff. Lovely lodge and outside area. We were offered a complimentary swim due to bad weather being forecast. Looking forward to visiting again.
Great location and owners. Peaceful, relaxing, can't wait to go back
Beautiful lodge in lovely location. The accommodation is of a high standard and the owners have thought of every detail. Perfect place for a quiet, relaxing break away.
Lovely place to stay accommodation was clean very well kitted out with necessities to make for a comfortable stay. Host were amazing nothing was too much trouble. A larger area for kids to run around somewhere within the site would have been an added bonus. Scenery was lovely felt in the heart of the countryside. Hot tub area was private and not overlooked used the games room multiple times kids loved it and all very good value for money. Private pool was well worth a visit clean warm and plenty of toys for kids. would love to return for another stay.
A lovely relaxing break away from it all
Lovely setting, the lodge was clean and everything you could need was there . It’s peaceful and full of wonderful wildlife all around. A bit too hilly for walking for me and roads around don’t have paths always. The villages near are really friendly and most shops and pubs are dog friendly.
A great holiday, Staff were very friendly and helpful. The location was great and very central to various attractions. Surrounded by woodland and wildlife, it was very quiet and peaceful. Had a great stay and will definitely return again.
