a few words about us...
ENJOY THE BLACKDOWN HILLS ANY TIME OF YEAR - (now open after renovations and redecoration early 2017)
Just minutes from the A303 yet Lodge House is a peaceful relaxing place to stay. (See our video on the "Bookings" page of how to drive into Lodge House from the A303)
The house dates back to the 1750’s and retains fine original features. We are approx 750 feet above sea level here, and the air is clean and pure. A footpath runs past our front door and the only traffic is the occasional walker or horse rider. The views from here are amazing, the peace and tranquility are second to none, making Lodge House B&B an ideal place for a stress-relieving break, away from the hustle and bustle of busy everyday life.
When our guests arrive we want them to relax, leave their troubles at the door and step into a world of home comfort and rest. As owners we intend to see that every attention is paid to detail and service.
We offer a full English breakfast each morning, with a vegetarian and light option, using local produce where possible, free range eggs from our own hens, homemade bread and home made preserves from our fruit trees and bushes when available and our own honey. Our 3 rooms are south-facing, comfortable guest bedrooms with antique furniture and modern touches and are ready to embrace the individual who is looking for peace and quiet, or the more adventurous person who likes to be active such as walkers and cyclists. Two rooms have adjacent private bathrooms that have been furnished to a high specification and the 2nd floor Blue room is ensuite.
We offer complementary therapies such as Reflexology, Indian Head Massage and Aromatherapy massage to guests at an additional cost and offer a discounted Therapeutic package, incorporating 2 nights B&B and 2 therapies.
If you are coming from London or SE England, then we are approximately a 2 ½ to 3 hours drive away and is a good stopping of point en route to Cornwall. The Blackdown Hills can seem like a different world and is attractive to those people who have the need to get away but do not have the time to go too far.
Because of the complementary therapies we offer, Lodge House B&B is a unique choice for people looking for a relaxing break.
As we will have secure stables where bicycles could be locked away safely we encourage guests who are cyclists and ramblers/walkers who are looking for a more active break.
Escaping to the Country? Thinking of relocating to Somerset, East Devon or Dorset? Then why not come and base yourselves at our B&B for a couple of days. We can give you local knowledge and the benefit of our experience of doing this 4 years ago. We can get the local property papers for you too. We are located in South Somerset by the Devon border, Bridport and the South Coast are 20 miles away and the North Somerset area (Minehead location) is some 25 miles away. Come and see what the local area has to offer.
Want to take on an eco project? Come and see our chickens, woods, our raised vegetable beds and our own water supply. We have wellies we can lend you as we show you around and give you an idea of some of the issues you might be up against if you took on a similar project.
Location The sheer beauty of our setting must be experienced and enjoyed. Nestled in the Blackdown Hills, just next to the Devon border, with a lovely view of the fields, Lodge House B&B is the ideal place to listen to the birds sing and take in Mother Nature. A pretty cottage garden makes this setting a truly lovely place.
Local Pubs:- we have 2 local pubs. The well-known Candlelight Inn in Bishopswood with it's excellent restaurant is within walking distance, and the Eagle Tavern on the A303 is just a short drive away. Both are great for evening meals.
