The second bedroom has twin full-sized singles and there is a fully accessible wet room with a power shower. All beds are made with Egyptian cotton linen. All our lodges have individually controlled gas central heating, double glazing and they are fully-accessible featuring extra-wide doorways, grab rails, and lever taps. Each has a private parking space immediately outside and a covered porch where guests can store bikes, surfboards, walking boots and mobility equipment. Each lodge has access to a washing line and there is a barbecue area. Set in the heart of Ruby country (so called after the Ruby Red cattle farmed locally), Blagdon Farm is only a few minutes from the wide sandy North Cornwall beaches at Bude and Widemouth Bay, the stunning Cornish resorts of Boscastle and Padstow (home to Rick Stein's famous seafood restaurant), and the spectacular scenery of Dartmoor and Exmoor. The ancient port of Clovelly and historic Tintagel Castle are close by and the attractions of the Eden Project, the Tate St. Ives, and RHS Rosemoor Gardens are all within easy reach. The bright lights of Launceston with its ancient castle, steam railway and bustling shopping centre is just 10 miles away. Here you will find Tescos, a retail park and many local shops. The pretty market town of Holsworthy is just 5 miles away where you will find crafts, excellent local produce and there is a market every Wednesday. All our lodges are South facing with private terraces enjoying magnificent views over our own coarse-fishing lake to the rolling Devon fields and woodland beyond. Blagdon Farm is the perfect place from which to explore Devon and Cornwall and you'll be sure of a very warm welcome. Established in the late 1990s the accommodation at Blagdon Farm, previously rated at 4 and 5 stars with an Accessibility rating of M3A, was a South West Excellence Award Winner in 2007.More

About the neighbourhood
Attractions within a 25 mile radius include: North Devon coast including Bude, Widemouth Bay, Saunton Sands and Westward Ho!; North Cornwall coast including Padstow and Port Isaac; The magnificent moors of Dartmoor to the East, Exmoor to the North and Bodmin Moor to the West; Lundy Island (day trips by boat from Bideford available in season), Roadford Reservoir and Tamar Lakes, walk, wheel or cycle around the lake, or enjoy a range of watersports including windsurfing, sailing, kayacking and fishing; Launceston, ancient stannery town and capital of Cornwall; Holsworthy, bustling market town with charming square and market every Wednesday; Clovelly, privately owned ancient port with it's reknown cobbled high street (an entrance fee applies).
Getting around
The lodge is located in rural Devon and is the perfect place to have a peaceful and restful holiday. The nearest train station is Okehampton (about 17 miles to the South East) and buses do run to Holsworthy and Launceston, but essentially, you will need a car to get about, although there are local taxis and car hire companies - both are reasonably priced. Most supermarkets are happy to deliver to our lodges, some guests order their food to arrive on the day they arrive and we are happy to supervise delivery as long as we are aware in advance and it comes after Midday.
