Mallard Lodge is one of 4 lodges located within the Valley View Lodges Park. This attractive timber clad lodge has a contemporary feel inside with warm tones to provide a feeling of cosiness. It comfortably sleeps 4 people in one double bedroom and 1 twin bedroom. The lodge overlooks the smaller of the 2 lakes on site and provides you with uninterrupted waterside views from both bedrooms. The open plan layout has French patio doors leading out to the private decking and hot tub.
Within the grounds you can enjoy stunning scenery in a peaceful setting whilst enjoying excellent fishing, cycling and countryside walks. There are 2 types of woodland surrounding the boundary providing extensive flora, fauna and wildlife. For the keen fishermen amongst you then the 2 lakes are stocked with Carp, Tench, Roach, Rudd and Golden Orfe. The lakes are exclusive to Valley View guests only.
The North Devon coast caters for all age groups and you will find many things of interest for families, couples and individuals. A 40 minute drive takes you to the busy market town of Barnstaple which is located on the lowest crossing point on the River Taw. The local pannier market is open from Tuesday – Saturday each week. As well as the market there are also many independent shops, cafes and restaurants and you will soon discover that you can pick up everything from your evening dinner to some local souvenirs. Rest your weary legs at one of the lovely cafes overlooking the river for a spot of lunch or afternoon tea. On your way back to Valley View perhaps swing by the seaside village of Westward Ho! This picturesque coastal spot takes its name from the Charles Kingsley book of the same name. The beach is popular with surfers and swimmers alike. On return to your lodge, you can soak in the hot tub and then have a relaxed barbeque out on the decking.
