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.

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.

This lodge was absolutely amazing from start to finish! 1) management were fantastic- welcoming, healthy and even left us an scrumptious lemon drizzle cake. 2) The lodge was immaculate. I usually attend these breaks with bleach, dettol, disinfectant wipes, my own cutlery...pots...etc. However, I was blown away by the cleanliness and everything I packed stayed in its case. 3) Hot Tub- phenomenal! even our five year old couldn't get enough and still talks about it. 4) location = perfect. If you want to relax on site you can. The games room was good and they also had a pool, which looked great although we didn't use it and children's playground. However, it is perfectly located for visiting many sites. We did Longleat, Wookie Hole and The town centre.

We had such a lovely relaxing holiday. The cabin was so clean and was fitted with all brand new appliances. The surrounding were beautiful and the grounds were well maintained. Gary and Diane were great and very funny. They both worked very hard from morning till after 10.30pm making sure the hot tub was ready for the morning. They are an assett to the resort.

Accommodation was good overall. Bathroom smaller than would have liked but hot tub was excellent. All appliances in good working order and all utensils were good quality. Was surprised on arrival that was required to pay £100 security deposit, I felt this should have been included in the holiday charge at point of sale not sprig on us as we checked in. There are good facilities onsite but did not use due extra expense and feel that these service should have been offered as a leisure pass for you holiday not charged for every use which could significantly add to the cost of your holiday regardless of your party size. Was able to buy free range eggs and the surrounding countryside was amazing.

A great place to explore Exmoor and the surrounds. Ideally located for both North and South Devon coasts and the whole of Exmoor. The lodge was clean, tidy and very well presented, excellent views of the hills across the valley and the hot tub which was very private looked out over open woodland. All in all and great stay
