Exmoor Gate Lodges

Waterrow, Wiveliscombe, Somerset, South West of England

Exmoor Gate Lodges is part of our Wanderwood Lodge Holiday Collection, nestled on the edge of Exmoor National Park in a picturesque wooded valley teeming with wildlife and offering breathtaking views. Perfect for families and couples looking to get off the beaten track and back to nature.

Surrounded by rolling woodland filled with birdsong, these classic lodges bring nature to your door.

Kick back on the covered verandah as you watch the wildlife go by, or kick off your boots and complete a hard day’s exploring with a soak under starry skies in the hot tub. With an on site pool* that can be booked for private use, a games room*, outdoor play area, outdoor table tennis and in–lodge therapies* there’s plenty for everyone.

Head for a hike through the surrounding 12 acres of wood, take a guided wildlife walk on Exmoor, with its famous ponies, or enjoy golden sands and traditional seaside fun at Exmouth and Sidmouth, an hour away. While riding, fishing and cycling opportunities abound Longleat Safari Park is nearby.

Excellent location for quieter time , main shopping about 25 mins away, Wiveliscombe very basic but lovely village with one small coop and butchers and only 5 mins away, owners lovely and really helpful , hot tubs really private and so relaxing, lodge great with loads of extras like dishwasher and lovely crisp clean bedding , lemon drizzle cake fantastic, great views and walks with alpacas in next field , wonderful to be able to book private pool just for family, truly a lovely retreat to re charge the batteries, thank you for a great stay.

Lovely holiday, took three young children they loved being outside in the woodland. All round great weekend

Nice location but a bit rough not being able to have a light on without putting money in the meter! Awful as you have to get downstairs in the middle of the night and the coins have run out. Too penny pinching for me

Lovely peaceful place. wish you could stay in the hot tub beyond 10.30 though. maybe they should highlight the fact that hot tubs are per lodge, not communal. this might reduce the number of people calling just to find out. use your website more! also, i would prefer a kettle rather than the one at a time boiling contraption there is in the kitchen.

Owners have done their research on what people expect from a self catering holiday ... always on hand if any problems... all appliances supplied with a pack of tea, coffee for arrival and a lovely slice of home made cake... hot tub was maintained every night and very private ..on arrival everything was explained including local amenities. These beautiful lodges are situated on a hill and the first 4 have no nearby parking so you can drive up to load and unload but someone then has to park the car on the main carpark and walk up...very peaceful and tranquil location with games room and private swimming pool and sauna that can be hired for 2 hourly sessions at extra cost.. ensure you have £2 and £1 coins for meter ( we spent about £12 for the week)

Lovely, peaceful and relaxing place, shame we couldn’t use hot tub after 10.30

Loved it but disappointed that you have to pay for electric as extra but also realise it makes you think about what electric you are using. Also paying to use the pool.
