About The Cleeve

This beautiful Victorian hunting Lodge is set in a spectacular position within 266 square miles of the Exmoor National Park. The lodge is perfect for accommodating large parties of up to twenty eight guests and is furnished and equipped to a very high standard to ensure your every need is met, whatever the occasion.

The Cleeve is positioned in a perfect location, not being overlooked by any other properties, yet just a two minute stroll to shops, restaurants and pubs and under two miles from a beach. You can truly relax and take it easy in this unique secluded position whilst having the convenience of many facilities on your doorstep.

Exmoor is among the UK's greatest areas of outstanding beauty and offers numerous activities to enjoy and places to visit. The scenery is breathtaking with rugged moors and ancient woodland. Whatever your interest, there is something for everyone with walking, riding, biking, fossil hunting, sailing, hang gliding and site seeing.

There are great village sports facilities including tennis, football, cricket, bowls along with a children's play area just across the lane. Children staying at The Cleeve can also enjoy playing in the private garden - you will just need to keep an eye on them so you can find them! There is a lovely stream, some steep banks and level lawned areas within the garden, providing the ideal place for relaxing on a hot sunny day.

The wildlife is abundant on Exmoor with thirty one native mammals, including the Exmoor pony and the majestic red deer. It provides plenty of opportunity for birdwatchers with over two hundred different species of birds, and there are numerous differenty types of flowers and insects.

Located in what is probably Exmoor's loveliest village, Hawkcombe and Porlock make a great place to spend a holiday. You can spend weeks without the need to drive anywhere, with everything within easy reach. There are trails straight from the lodges front door and you can go directly from the huge lawn onto a bridleway or take the winding garden path over the private bridge across the stream and stroll up the quiet country lane deeper into the spectacular setting. There are three pubs within walking distance as well as a choice of restaurants and shops for stocking up on provisions.

If you are looking for holiday accommodation to cater for a large party with plenty of activities and facilities on your doorstep, then look no further!
