Overview

Situated on a farm in the beautiful village of Georgeham near Braunton in North Devon, March End lodges offer luxurious accommodation in a wonderful countryside setting.
A beautifully laid out interior is complimented by floor to ceiling windows that invite the pretty countryside views in giving the space a wonderfully calming atmosphere.
The master bedroom is furnished with a king size bed providing a relaxing retreat, with a spacious modern en-suite bathroom featuring a large bath and walk-in shower.
Central to the living space is a well-equipped open-plan kitchen ideal for whipping up a fabulous meal in; and with so much excellent local produce available in the area you may be tempted to create a few locally inspired dishes.
Outside you’ll discover a decked patio where a bubbling hot tub awaits. Positioned under the eaves it makes for the perfect place to laze the hours away whilst taking in the beauty of the landscape beyond.
Thistledown Lodge is pet-friendly so the four-legged members of the family get to enjoy a wonderful break too. Featuring an enclosed garden at the back of the home and just a short drive from some of the best local dog-walking beaches in Devon, this really is the idea pet-friendly home and one we're sure you'll want to return to!

North Devon get away
4.2/5

The Thistledown lodge is a lovely place to have a quiet break away from hustle and bustle. It is clean and comfortable and had a secluded hot tub on the decking at the back. You can walk to the village of Georgeham where there are two pubs if you want to eat out, although there are no pavements so you need to watch out for cars. You can also walk to Putsborough beach in about 40 minutes. It was a nice touch that we were given Prosecco and fresh milk on arrival. However there was no shower gel or shampoo or dishwasher tablets/liquid and I hadn’t packed any! Treats were provided for our dog which was also lovely. The cost was a bit steep for 3 nights but we had a nice time. Thank you

Hi Claire, thank you for taking the time to leave a review, we are so pleased to hear you had a lovely stay and enjoyed a quiet break away from the hustle and bustle. We are sorry to hear you were not provided with dishwasher tablets, the owners do live on site and would have been happy to provide you with some if you had contacted them. Many of our properties do not now provided shampoo and shower gel in an effort to cut down on wastage so we would suggest bringing your own in the future. Georgeham is a rural village in North Devon and not unusual to have country lanes without pavements however we are pleased to hear you still had a lovely time. Best wishes, The Luxury Coastal Team.

Short Stay
5/5

The Lodge was lovely, modern, warm (we went in February) and clean. It was great to get in the hot tub! The garden area was perfect for our 2 dogs. The location was great, short drive to Woolacombe and the two local pubs served great food and catered for me who is coeliac. We had a small issue with the shower, but this was being resolved on the Monday. Definitely stay again, perfect for 2 people and their dogs

Lovely Lodge close to beaches
4.8/5

We stayed early August 2023. The lodges are beautiful throughout from the lodge itself to the high end furnishings. The lodge contains everything you need for your getaway and are very clean throughout with a comfortable king bed, bath and shower. The kitchen is modern with an area for eating and sofa for relaxing in front of tv. The garden is large and secure for a pooch and has wonderful views overlooking fields while you relax in the hot tub provided. There are two pubs in walking distance. The Rock Inn was our fav serving great traditional pub food with lots of options. The beaches near by are beautiful. Great holiday!

A little Devon hideaway perfect for couples and pups
5/5

We managed to bag this lovely cabin for the May half-term. The weather was stunning which helped a lot but the cabin really was a joy to be in. The bed was so comfy, the cabin had everything you needed and they even supplied milk and prosecco! We travelled with 2 miniature dachshunds who loved the garden and we loved not having to worry they would escape as it was totally secure! They even had their own welcome pack with towels, water bowls and a jar of treats. The whole cabin was surrounded by wild grasses and flowers, so pretty! The hot tub was a lovely addition as well as the egg sofa. We didn't hear anyone come in to service the tub at all. Although we had neighbours, we were not disturbed at all. Brilliant base to travel around the beaches and sights of North and South Devon (Newton Abbott is about an hour away). I will say that getting to the cabin was 'interesting' if you are not used to small Devonshire roads or you have a big car... its a bit tight and twisty. Broughton had fab takeaways and restaurants - Highly recommend Fish and Chips from Squires, Thai from The Siam Bistro (portions are per person so if you want a feast order double) and amazing firewood pizzas from Meraki Pizza Co. All have online ordering and sit-in if you want a night out. All in all, it was a wonderful week and has set the bar even higher for our next pup holiday!

Easter stay
4.7/5

Lovely, clean and well presented lodge. Little attentions to detail give the feel of a 4/5* hotel suite. Great location on a quiet farm with picturesque views over the fields watching spring lambs jump around. Two excellent pubs within short walking distance and well located for Woolacombe and Croyde. Happy to recommend to anyone looking for a relaxing break experience.

Amazing Stay
5/5

Myself, my partner and my dog had a great stay here! It was lovely and clean when we arrived, in a great location and is very quiet perfect for what we wanted it for. It is a great retreat to relax and chill out, great for pets as the garden is fenced off too! Modern lodges with great large beds which as so comfy, the hot tub is a great addition too. We walked the the beach which took us around 2 hours however we did get lost! and there are great pubs in the town as well, The Georges Arms has the best lamb I have ever tasted. Will be returning

Absolutely stunning
5/5

The lodge is exactly as the pictures are advertised on the website. Can’t fault any of it and would highly recommend…we will definitely be back!! Even down to the smallest details, spare dog bowls and blanket just incase you’ve forgotten yours. Also a jar of treats for the dog and lovely bottle of Prosecco also chilled in the fridge for us. Towels and dressing gowns also provide, overall home from home. Garden was big and well enclosed for the dog so she also had a nice time without us having to worry. The whole place was very clean and the hot tub was spotless!! Pub within a five minute walk and very welcoming, would recommend booked a table for food in advance. Lovely nature trails if you enjoy your walks. Plenty things to do within a short driving distance. We will definitely be back!!
