About Mrs Susan Lamb
Sue and Steve Lamb. We live in Plymouth, and so our holiday home at Devon Hills means we can have a short break when we feel the need, without to much travelling. We have owned the lodge for 6 years and have sublet through Haulfryn and now with Owners Direct, we take pride in keeping it up to scratch and nothing pleases us more than reading our reviews in our guest book.
Mrs Susan Lamb purchased this Lodge in 2011
Why Mrs Susan Lamb chose Paignton
This is an amazing lodge fitted out to a very high standard with every home comfort and lots of little extras. Everything about the lodge and its location is top of the range with beautiful views over the country side. It is on a quiet site but has plenty of on site facilities, beaches and country side are within a short drive, and so you can be as busy or chilled out as you wish.

I would like to thank Amy and Richard for taking the time to write an amazing review, nothing pleases myself more than to hear that my guests have had a great holiday and that they would make a return booking.

1 week break early July
A clean, modern and very well equipped property in a quiet location, but within easy reach of the local beaches and attractions.
Two large bi-folding French windows opening onto raised decking offer an al fresco feel and come in useful for cooling the property at the end of a warm summer day. The property is currently advertised minus the out-of-order hot-tub, which would have combined nicely to offer a great summer outdoors feel.
The beds were very comfortable and both the main bathroom and en-suite are nicely fitted, though they lack a power point for charging electric razors and toothbrushes, and the toilet seats are ill-fitting.
As a welcoming touch, some complementary items such as dishwasher tablets, biscuits, tea, coffee and toilet rolls were provided.
The only real downside to the property was the fact that my teenagers were unable to connect with the Wi-Fi, but it's a minor inconvenience and didn't detract from the holiday.
It could be the time of year, but the Blagdon Inn down the road was quiet and staff didn't seem to be on top of their game. The food was nice, but a bit pricey with a limited menu. Be warned that they don't serve food after 6pm on Sundays. We didn't rush to go back and there are plenty of other places to eat in the area.
For grocery shopping, there's a convenient Morrisons next to the zoo which is only 5 minutes away by car.
Overall we really enjoyed our stay at the property and our week in Devon. It was definitely a home away from home. If we ever go back to the area, this property will certainly be our first choice.
Thank you for writing a detailed review on our holiday lodge. I would just like to respond to a few comments that were made about our lodge, I am sorry that the toilet seats seam ill fitting but they are replacements as 1 got smashed to bits previousley, they are easy release tiolet seats to make it easier for cleaning, I have taken on board your comment and my husband has tightened them up, so I hope that they are fit for purpose now. The Wi Fi is very much hit or miss and this is down to the signal and provider which is out of my control as is managed by the site, there is however a phone number left in the lodge to contact if you are finding it difficult to connect
to the network which you can call and they will help you get set up. When we purchased the lodge 9 years ago the lodge unfortunately did not have a shaving point, this is something that we have not been able to provide as it has to put in when the lodge is being built in the factory. Regarding the hot tub it would be nice if it was working but as you have mentioned the lodge is not advertised with it, and it is priced accordingly. It is disappointing but after any amount of broken clips to keep the lid down, a broken speaker, replacing the head rests and a broken lid at the cost of £450 to replace, we could not justify the mainanance costs. There is also chemicals to be checked everyday, as we do not live nearby I would have to employ someone to check them, for health and safety the hot tub has to be emptied with every change of guest sometimes twice a week, so that is 2 hours of hot water from the boiler to refill and then keeping it heated , the utilty bills were very high, offering the lodge without the hot tub keeps the rental cost down for visiters. I hope this helpful for any future guests.
