The Shooting Lodge is a unique hideaway off the beaten track in East Devon with uninterrupted rural views. Once a lace making school, it’s been beautifully and rustically converted. It is totally secluded, nestled into an area of outstanding natural beauty, yet just minutes away from the famous Jurassic coastline.
The Shooting Lodge is fully off grid - free from modern technology you can escape the hustle and bustle of day to day life and reconnect with your surroundings and loved ones. The lodge really comes alive at night, perfect for winter getaways where you can enjoy candlelit evenings around the fire.
There’s lots to do in the surrounding area. Country walks and bike riding are popular options, with a host of footpaths and bicycle tracks on your doorstep. The Jurassic coastline is just 10 minutes drive away, with coastal towns such as Beer, Sidmouth and Lyme Regis all in easy reach. Go fossil hunting, beachcombing and sandcastle building. There is a horse riding centre a ten minute drive away.
Directions given on booking. The 500m access track can be driven carefully with an average car. It may not be appropriate for sports cars or low cars.

The Shooting Lodge combines a mixture of home comforts and escapism. It has a fully equipped but rustic kitchen with all the necessaries including kettle, toaster, microwave, dishwasher and a one off experience of cooking on a range cooker or on the woodburning stove. There is an open plan living and dining area with Scottish influences which simply oozes character - the large woodburner, exposed oak throughout, herringbone flooring, a banquet style table and double doors opening onto the courtyard. Upstairs there is a mezzanine level where there is a double bedroom with stunning views across the surrounding landscape. There are camp beds providing additional sleeping accommodation for two further people. Also upstairs a bespoke bathroom is tucked into the eaves - a delightful sanctuary with freestanding slipper bath, washbasin, WC and heated towel rail.
There is a courtyard area with picnic bench. A marked out garden is not necessary, as the lodge is situated in a big open field!
Electricity is powered by a generator on a self-serve basis. Hot and cold running water is available. here is a small gas fridge for essentials – it is unlikely to fit the weekly shop! The nearest shop is 3 miles away, nearest supermarket is 7 miles. Mobile phone signal is very limited, no wifi, you’re pretty much off grid here, and it’s heaven!
