The Lantern Lodge Hotel is small privately run hotel situated on the cliff top right next to the South Devon Coastal path and overlooking the secluded fishing village of Hope Cove with its Devon thatch cottages, clean, sandy and safe beaches.
Near by are the old traditional towns of Kingsbridge, Salcombe and Dartmouth all offering their own individual character and all offering that little extra to make your stay in the South Hams that extra special and unique. Also close by are Thurlestone, Bigbury and Dartmouth golf courses all with stunning views of the area and fantastic and challenging course’s.
The Lantern Lodge Hotel has its own special extra’s to offer including an indoor heated swimming pool, sauna, double, twin and four poster rooms all with en-suite facilities and some with sea views. 9 hole putting green and plenty of car parking.There is a restaurant where breakfast and dinner is served. Next to the restaurant is a well stocked bar and a extensive wine list offering wines from all around the world.
The hotel is so named after its attractive leafily-clad 'Lantern window.' Local folklore would have us believe that this type of window was specially designed to hold and display an illuminated lantern which could be seen from all three aspects far out to sea, acting as a beacon to safely guide home all their boats. Nowadays, our Lantern window serves very much the same purpose in welcoming back our contented guests year after year.
Apologies for any inconvenience, but we do not accept children under 12 or pets.
Nice hosts. Great breakfast. Parking space which is handy.
The room was clean and had everything I needed. Spacious shower and plenty of clean towels.
Only a three minute walk to the beach.
Lovely B&B, friendly hosts, clean comfortable room with everything you need and a beautiful view of the garden and beyond. Fantastic breakfast too. (Would advise booking a table if you want to secure dinner at the local pub at busy times/holidays). Would highly recommend
Bootmenders is a great location with charming hosts. The Barn has been done very nicely and is a wonderful base to explore the South Downs from. Looking forward to coming back in the summer for a longer stay.
Superb accommodation, beautiful location and lovely hosts. Spotlessly clean with everything that we needed to hand. Jenna's local knowledge was really helpful. A visit to the Harrow pub in Steep is a must.
Breakfast was delicious. Would recommend without hesitation.
I wish that we could have stayed longer.
This place is beautiful, and incredibly peaceful. It's not a true airbnb experience though, as its run via an agency so there's confusion with the hosts over communication re timings, breakfast, payment. I would only go again on a non board basis, as I found it too inconvenient to coordinate breakfast - in fact they dropped off some muesli and yoghurt on their way out. That aside, I found the place lovely and would go again for a solitary retreat. The host was friendly and very knowledgeable about the area - and you simply have to try the food at The Old Drum - worth going back just for that!
A place too good to be true! Jenna and Jeremy provide a perfect place to stay for R'nR. They made us feel like royalties, and not only when Jenna served us breakfast. The surrounding area is worth visiting for walks and National Trust places and gardens and museums. Portsmouth with its historical harbor area and the 18th century HMS Victory is a must and only 20-30 minutes driving distance. This is definitely a B&B that we want to get back to when we can.
Don't arrive in the dark, you might have difficulties finding it, the place is so secluded. Big THANK YOU! to Jenna and Jeremy for your family's warm welcome.
David Crawford manages the online communication / reservation for them. The booking process was easy. Thanks, David.
This place sounded to good to be true- but it was true and even more! -a fantastic beautiful retreat in the south England countryside. Our Host were most gracious and very helpful, sitting down to eat breakfast with us each day.They pointed out some wonderful local pubs and were full of touring advice. The private cottage we stayed in had a new modern bathroom and other amenities with plenty of hot water. We used this location from which to explore surrounding villages and go on walks through pleasant pastures and past WWII bomb-craters. We wished we had stayed longer than two days.
Just note your contact through Airbnb is not the hosts themselves but a booking agency- so it was a little confusing at first making this reservation, but don't let that put you off. This is a real five star gem of a place!
The reservation was canceled 5 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
