Vennlake: Path to the lodge

General

  • Self-contained glamping lodge in a central Devon location
  • A 15-minute drive from Dartmoor National Park; 35 minutes from Exeter
  • Kitchenette, wetroom and outside space; pub 10 minutes' walk away

How’s this as a cosy little spot for some Devon downtime? The glamping lodge at Vennlake is just the place for a peaceful retreat surrounded by countryside but only an easy 15-minute drive from Crediton (mostly along a main road; no wending your way along little lanes around here…).

All is set up here to be splendidly self contained: the lodge has been well kitted out with all sorts of handy things including a wetroom, a spacious living area (with TV for lazy evenings) and a kitchenette that’s got a hot plate, kettle, microwave and fridge. A small supermarket is a couple of minutes’ walk away to stock this latter with whatever treats/drinks/brekkie bits you fancy – and anything you pick up can be consumed either cuddled up on the sofa or out on the deck for added fresh air and views.

Need some rather more substantial sustenance? Take a 10-minute walk to the local pub for dinner – a meal or pint at this 16th-century gem is a fine reward for any efforts you put on on local walks or lengthier rambles in the Dartmoor National Park, 15 minutes’ drive away.

If Dartmoor’s not part of your plans, there are plenty of other things to fill your days with: Vennlake’s nifty central Devon location means that it’s easy enough to hit either coast, take days out in Exeter or find rural activities like fishing, horse riding or nosing around National Trust estates.

    The whole weekend. Cabin was lovely to stay in and will definitely be staying again! Was welcomed on arrival and made to feel right at home from the first minute. Was told if we needed anything then don’t hesitate to call or go next door to see them. Cabin was very clean. Was offered to there own firework display. Given lots of information on where to go and where local shops and stuff were should we need them. Was also shown there next cabin project which we will be booking to stay in next year! Would recommend this place to anyone. Cannot fault this place one bit. Thank you to the owners who made us feel so welcome and comfortable during our stay. 10/10

Directions


Please note: All distances on this page are calculated "as the crow flies" - please check actual distance depending on your mode of travel using the Get directions button above.

Local attractions

Dartmoor National Park’s got to be top of the list if you’re heading here to hike: a 15-minute drive gets you over there to wander around the wide open spaces, with wildlife, villages and views galore to spot along the way (and cream teas to sustain you too…) There are three swimming pools within a 15-minute drive too, should you fancy a dip on your way back to base.

The natural sights are splendid indeed but they’ve got plenty of rivals among the local architecture too: smart Castle Drogo and the medieval ruins of Okehampton Castle are both about 25 minutes’ drive away and worth a wander, or it’s a 35-minute drive to Exeter to see its ornate cathedral.

For more of a glimpse into the inner workings of traditional life, pay a visit to the old forge Finch Foundry or the Museum of Dartmoor Life; both are about 15 minutes’ drive away. Dartmoor and Exmoor zoos are both about an hour away if you’d rather spend a bit of time in the company of a collection of animals.

Must see

  • Castle Drogo (7.5 miles)
  • Exeter Cathedral - Church of Saint Peter (14.1 miles)
