Overview

This luxury lodge is airy, open plan and modern, with a private hot tub and en-suite master bedroom.

One of a small collection, this beautiful home is an idyllic escape for couples and their dogs with a tastefully styled interior and fabulous outside space. Open plan, bright and fully equipped, the living area opens out to a furnished deck via glass patio doors allowing you to extend the inside of the lodge out so for BBQ weather it’s perfect. You’ll also find a private hot tub to the side along with an outdoor shower for rinsing off under so when you return home from a sandy walk down on Saunton, both you can easily de-sand.

Guests with their dogs in tow can savour long walks on one of Devon’s best beaches at the fabulous Saunton Sands, an idyllic 3-mile stretch of stunning golden sand, backed by the UNESCO-protected Braunton Burrows Biosphere Reserve before grabbing a bite to eat at the fabulous dog-friendly Beachside Grill. Nearby, the South West Coast Path picks up part of the Tarka Trail along the estuary of the River Taw (part of North Devon’s Biosphere Reserve) which is an easy level route for walkers, passing through marshland and nature reserves that teem with wildlife before ending in the village of Instow.

Croftner is the first lodge on the right as you enter the orchard, Middle Thorne is the middle lodge of the three on the right side of the site, and Hayditch is at the top of the orchard, last on the right side.

2nd Stay- really enjoyed...
5/5

This was our second stay at Middle Thorne. Its a perfect couples retreat, stylish, comfortable and pet friendly. Peaceful farm setting but close to all the local beaches and resorts. These lodges are a credit to the owners and Sarah does a fantastic job with the lodge being spotless and welcoming with all the bits you need whilst away- even a bottle of bubbly. Thankyou again for a great stay, thoroughly recommended

Lovely Weekend Retreat
5/5

This property does what it says on the tin. Very clean, modern, well- equipped and dog friendly lodge for a cosy break for 2 (+1 pooch). Cosy open plan kitchen/ lounge with little dining table. Super comfortable bed and great shower. Quiet enclosed garden space, good deck with hot tub tucked away in the corner. Nice birdsong! Fantastic position only 5 min drive from Saunton Sands and Braunton Burrows. Nice touches were the Nespresso machine and Prosecco in the fridge with a fee doggy bags and biscuits for all 3 guests. Aim to come back soon.

Steve, 28 Apr 2024

Luxurious lodges
5/5

The lodges are ideally located within 5 minutes of Saunton Sands, 10 minutes away from Croyde and 15 minutes from the amazing beaches at Woolacombe. The lodge was spotless and had everything you could possibly need for a break - the bottle of Prosecco and shortbread biscuits were a lovely touch. The heating was brilliant and the bathroom felt luxurious. We made good use of the hot tub and I’m sure the decking area and garden would be lovely in the summer. Braunton itself has a good variety of restaurants and shops and we would definitely recommend Squires and SQ. This is our second stay at Great Field Lodges and we will definitely return soon.

Stephen, 01 Mar 2024

Hi Stephen, Thank you for taking the time to leave a review, so glad to hear you enjoyed the location of the lodges and how spotless the property was as well as having everything you needed.

5/5

Booked as a short break for my husband and I and our puppy. Arrived and the property surpassed the photos. Such a lovely warm atmosphere, everything is perfect and well done and kitted out. The garden was very well secured so we felt happy to let our pup roam around. Very clean. The support we had from Our host was absolutely amazing. Can't fault her at all. She went above and beyond to help us and was so friendly when we arrived a day early (our fault entirely)!! Was allowed in a little earlier the next day due to that which was very much appreciated. The bed was so comfortable and like a dream, as was the hot tub. Only gripe was not having a second set of towels for the hot tub and had to use the bathing ones. Otherwise that's being pedantic really if I had to give a negative.

Gulcan, 26 Feb 2024

Hi Gulcan, Thank you for taking the time to leave a review, we are so glad to hear that you enjoy the lovely atmosphere and everything was perfect for you both. It is good to hear your pup got to roam around and enjoy themselves also and that you felt supported by the host and found her to go above and beyond. We are sorry to hear about the towels, we did send you an email to check if you were aware that there was towelling robes in the wardrobe for the use of the hot tub. We look forward to welcoming you back in the future. Best wishes, The Luxury Coastal Team

Excellent Lodge...
5/5

Really enjoyed our stay, lovely lodge, spotlessly clean, spacious and well thought out -a real credit to the owner. The lodge had everything you needed. Our Beagle loved the large enclosed garden. We spent a lot of time on the large decked area in the sunshine and evenings in the hot tub. Close to all the beaches of Saunton, Croyde, Woolacombe and Instow. Close to Braunton with its shops and pubs Thoroughly recommend for a relaxing break Thankyou again for a great stay

Wonderful!
5/5

Myself and my partner had an excellent time at Middle Thorne. It’s sparkling clean with all the amenities you could need. The host information was very clear and easy to contact if you needed anything. The area is so quiet and private, perfect for relaxing with your book on a sun lounger. The hot tub is warm all the time and there’s even an outdoor warm shower. To top it off, we were gifted a bottle of Prosecco! Overall I’d highly recommend.

beautiful lodge with all the amenities you would want from a holiday stay. We were very grateful for providing milk, a bottle of bubbly and some biscuits for our stay. lodge was extremely clean and will definitely be looking to book again.

A beautiful rural retreat
5/5

From initial contact to our departure, everything was perfect. A beautiful luxury and well appointed lodge, a farm setting in stunning rural North Devon, a bubbling hot tub and starry skies made for a very pleasant stay. A beautiful relaxing retreat, a credit to the owners and also to the agents for the way they handled my questions. Amazing and refreshing to find such quality accommodation 5 Stars just aren’t enough !!
