Modern holiday lodge with superb rural views and onsite bar/restaurant
Drake Lodge, Dunkeswell is a modern three-bedroom property that takes full advantage of its AONB situation. The white vaulted ceiling and wall of windows flood the open-plan living area with natural light, whether you're dining "en famille" or putting your feet up on the sofas around the electric woodburner and TV. Alternatively dine onsite at Lakeview Manor's lovely restaurant and bar. The fully equipped kitchen and bathrooms are fresh and modern. Three bedrooms include a king-size with ensuite shower room, two twin rooms and a family bathroom.
Local cheese, meats and award-winning Lyme Bay wines never tasted so good as when eaten leisurely at the outdoor table on the glass-enclosed balcony with panoramic rural views.
