Being a completely separate cottage with the freedom of having your own front door means that you can come and go as you please making it feel more like a holiday home but with breakfast included, if required, and offers a perfect home away from home experience for you, your family or friends. The accommodation sleeps from 1 to 4 people and is only ever booked to one party of family or friends so that you will always have the lodge completely to yourselves, so why not enjoy a holiday, short break or a romantic break more often. The accommodation consists of an open plan lounge, kitchen area and a table with 4 chairs, then continues through double doors to a shower room, one king size bed room and one twin bedroom.

Luxury white cotton bedding, fluffy towels, soaps, toiletries and hair dryers are provided, and for the cooler evenings there is full central heating in all rooms with an additional fire in the lounge, if required.

The lounge is equipped with a flat screen TV/DVD, RADIO/CD player, books, games, puzzles and comfy sofas, there is free WIFI available during your stay should you need to plan your activities during your holiday or catch up on your emails. The kitchen includes a fridge, microwave oven, fan oven, sandwich toaster, toaster, kettle, range of crockery, glasses and cutlery, and a selection of coffees, teas and sugar with fresh milk provided in the fridge.

From London take the M4 towards Bristol. At junction 20 turn South on the M5 towards Exeter. At junction 31 take the A30 turning towards Okehampton. Take the A386 exit towards Tavistock. Follow the A386 for about 10 miles, passing through Mary Tavy, until you see a turning on your left for Peter Tavy. We are not in the main village, so take the second right at Langsford Farm then take the first left. Continue up the hill until you reach a triangular junction. Directly opposite and slightly to your left is Acorn Lodge – The Oaks. Please drive into the drive and park on the left in the curved parking space and someone will be with you.
