The Lodge is a gorgeously sunny open plan cottage and is incredibly eco-friendly – as well as very child-friendly and dog-friendly! It nestles on our organic dairy farm in remote countryside right on the South Devon coast close to Plymouth and also just a short drive from rugged Dartmoor.

In a small corner of the stunning South Devon countryside, with fresh sea air and the most beautiful scenery, you will find Carswell Farm. Tucked away on the South Devon coast, our six holiday cottages are right in the heart of our working organic dairy farm and yet only a few minutes walk from the coast path and secluded beaches and coves, including our own private cove.
The Lodge is our newest cottage - built in summer 2008. Situated next door to Corner Cottage, this "eco-lodge" has been built to a very high standard and is incredibly eco-friendly. It has a timber frame, triple glazing, solar panels and many energy and water saving features.
Downstairs there is a slate tiled hall and a bathroom (bath with shower over). Through the hall is a lovely open plan kitchen, dining and living room with an oak floor and a woodburner and large patio doors out to the small sunny garden with a gate through to our lovely wildflower meadow and children's play area - complete with tractor!
The kitchen is fully equipped and has a gorgeous hand made table and bench made using old oak from Carswell Farm!
You go up the stairs (with stairgates top and bottom) from the hall directly into the twin room, with a great area under the eaves for children to play in, and through into a double room with king sized bed.
Explore the nearby picturesque towns of Kingsbridge, Dartmouth and Salcombe or visit the historic port of Plymouth. Why not visit out of season and cosy down by a roaring log fire, or come and see the calves in spring?
We put fresh local organic milk in each cottage for guests on arrival. Carswell is also the birthplace of the Well Hung Meat Company so our visitors can taste award winning local organic lamb and beef.
The cottage is extremely well equipped with woodburner, digital widescreen TV, DVD, washing machine, dishwasher etc and it has a private garden with patio table and BBQ. There are fixed stairgates at the top and bottom of the stairs and lots of toys, games & DVDs for the little ones. Cots and high chairs available on request. Well behaved dogs are very welcome. Open all year and short breaks available at any time.
