Great Field Lodges
Set in the Braunton countryside, on the North Devon coast, Great Field Lodges is a brand new resort perfect for that time away from the hustle and bustle. Just a five minute drive away from the spectacular Saunton Sands, the lodges make romantic retreats for couples dreaming of nothing but long lazy days in the Great Outdoors and the kind of scenery that takes your breath away.
Each lodge has its very own hot tub and an enclosed garden, so there’s plenty of opportunity to forget the world and unwind in your tub of sheer bubbly bliss after a busy day. And even better, each lodge welcomes one dog along too, so there’ll be no need to leave your best friend behind for all those exhilarating coastal walks.
We can think of quite a few lovely things about slinking off to the coast for a few days of romance and relaxation, but one of the nicest is that every lodge at Great Field Lodges has a bubbling hot tub. Set outside on each lodge’s enclosed veranda, the hot tubs add a little touch of indulgence to a stay, no matter what the time of year.
There’s something about knowing there’s a bubbling hot tub waiting for you that makes getting home from a long walk along the beach even better, and who are we to judge those lazy evenings spent sipping on a glass of bubbly while you stare up at the stars from the tub…?!
Take the dog
If you’ve got a dog, then those walks along the South West Coast Path of North Devon just wouldn’t feel quite the same without your pet bounding ahead, so we’re happy to say that every lodge welcomes one dog. They each have a garden, so your best friend will be free to pop outside and stretch his legs in between all those adventures in the surrounding area.
Better yet, nearby Saunton Sands is dog friendly, and that means you’ll be able to enjoy this three mile stretch of golden sandy bliss with your pet. The zoning of the beach means that you’ll only need to keep your dog on his lead for the first few minutes of your walk, and then it’s a hop, skip and a jump to mile after mile of happy walkies.
Out and about
With a setting in the beautifully unspoilt village of Braunton on North Devon, Great Field Lodges are perfect for those breaks that are all about escaping the daily grind. You’ll find Saunton Sands five minutes’ away by car, and with three miles of sand backed by fluffy dunes it’s one of our favourite stretches of coast.
If you fancy walking your socks off, you’ll be able to pick up the South West Coast Path and take in some of the area’s infamous coastal scenery on foot. The 14 miles or so to neighbouring Woolacombe might be a bit of a stretch, but if you can wander the path for an hour or two you’ll be treated to the kind of views that make visitors fall in love with North Devon.
