Had a lovely stay. Loved the lodge which had everything we needed. The owners were were very welcoming and helpful. We were able text the owners for booking the pool (which was lovely) and any other information that we required throughout our stay. Took a lovely walk into Wivlescombe and had a deliscious lunch at the Bear Inn. Visited Dulverton and Tarr Steps by car. Loved being able to order from the local Indian restaurant and have it delivered and enjoyed a great meal at the Rock which was in walking distance. Would definitely reccommend Exmoor Gate Lodge for a relaxing, get away from it all weekend.

We came for a girls weekend away to celebrate my birthday. We’d booked a Tesco food order for delivery to the lodge but it arrived early so Gary kindly took in our food and even put the cold stuff in the fridge and freezer!. There was 8 of us ladies in the lodge which had everything we needed including a homemade lemon drizzle cake that Diane had made. The kitchen was very well stocked with lots of equipment (we cooked each night) the bathrooms were really plush and the beds were really really comfortable (we used them all and we all commented on this fact in the morning whilst drinking espresso Martinis!!). Diane and Gary were lovely hosts, very approachable ,kind and helpful so much so we all wanted to say goodbye when we left.

Area lovely, but too quiet for me unfortunately. Have stayed in much nicer lodges, so I think was over priced. I thought I had booked a lodge that did not have animals in, but must of made an error when booking. I found a strong dog smell on entering the lodge, and unfortunately when I went into the garden there was dog mess there which had not been cleaned up. 4pm late entry when you arrive and nowhere in the local area to visit.

Excellent location with a beautiful lodge. Owners really did give it the personal touch and were always available if we needed them, not that we did as the lodge was well equipped, very clean and a really good size. Wi-fi great and even fast enough for our son to play fortnite (what are holidays for hey)

Spent Christmas in a lodge. Very enjoyable. Lodge was very clean and very well presented. There were a nice few personal touches, including a homemade cake on arrival! Hot tub was a great asset too. Would stay again at a different time of year to explore surrounding area.
