About the property

Eddington Lodge

Our warm and contemporary log cabins have been a true labour of love. Designed by us specifically to suit families, couples and groups of friends, our three log cabins have a modern Scandinavian feel with open plan living areas incorporating a comfortable seating area, dining table and well-equipped kitchen. The toasty log burner ensures a warm and welcoming atmosphere as you walk in the door and the generous bedrooms have super-comfy beds to help you get a fantastic night sleep after a long day exploring the nearby beaches and coastline. Professionally laundered bedding provides that extra touch of luxury and wifi is free of charge and reliable through the property so you won't miss anything while you're away!

A short 5 minute drive will take you to the sandy beaches of the North Cornwall coastline, however there's no need to go anywhere to experience beautiful views of the stunning Cornish countryside. The log cabin is situated in a gated courtyard with outdoor seating, BBQs and fabulous views to enjoy. A small area of field is also available for outdoor games so you won't be lost for things to do if you fancy spending a day close to home!

If you like to eat in, the kitchen is fully equipped with oven, electric hob and dishwasher so there's no need to argue over who's doing the washing up! For those treat nights where you want to eat out, there is an abundance of local restaurants including great pub food, Chinese, Indian, Italian and many seafood eateries taking advantage of our proximity to the Atlantic ocean. Local takeaways include fish and chips, pizza and Chinese. Local supermarkets within 5 minutes include Co-Op and Spar, with Morrisons and Lidl just 10 minutes away.

Local beaches, surfing, golf course, tennis, mini golf, horse-riding and fishing will help you to create lots of memories to take home with you and there is a fantastic choice of activities for kids such as soft play for the younger ones and even a nearby theme park for the kids to look forward to! Tamar Lakes is approximately 1 mile away and offers water sports and enjoyable walks. For a more laid back holiday, meandering along the South West coast path or visiting beautiful country houses and National Trust sites at any time of the year will provide a truly relaxing break.

When you're ready to put your feet up, our generous sofas will help you wind down and either take advantage of the TV and DVD player or play a good old fashioned board game!

Parking is free on site, just let us know if you plan to bring more than one car.

Bed linen, towels and cleaning are all provided at no extra charge.

About Hannah Davey

Both Jonathan and myself left high-pressured, busy jobs and decided to move 250 miles south to Cornwall to purchase our dream home in 2012. Much to our surprise, our dream home turned out to be a rather ramshackle farmhouse with some old, dilapidated barns in the courtyard!

Renovation of the farmhouse has been a six year project, however it has been home right from the start. Having lived here for a year, we finally received permission to design and build three modern yet cosy log cabins to replace the dilapidated barns, and we began to create a family-run business which has now been welcoming guests for the past four years to enjoy the beautiful surroundings and explore our dramatic coastline.

Hannah Davey purchased this cabin in 2012

Why Hannah Davey chose Kilkhampton

We fell in love with Eddington Lodge as we were creating it on paper, and watching our dream become a reality through a huge amount of hard work has been a great privilege. We have been fortunate to create bespoke holiday log cabins, decorated in a contemporary Scandinavian style with every detail planned around modern family living.

Beautiful Bude is particularly unique as it is both easily accessible from the rest of the UK and enjoys a relaxed, bustling but not over-busy atmosphere. The beaches are sandy and the coastline provides endless entertainment, whether it's surfing or sandcastles that take your fancy. A canal meaders it's way into the town and provides a haven for wildlife including many birds.

What makes this cabin unique

Pop on your thermals and step outside on a clear night and we will take you over to our observation pods with fantastic telescopes in them! Gaze through the lens to view some incredible sights in the night sky, from planets to galaxies or even just the moon! Provided free of charge, this will really make your holiday one to remember.

Great place to stay and explore the local area

  • 5 of 5

We had a great week at eddington lodges - very warm welcome by the host. Although we were next door to their house we felt we had our privacy and also could call on them if needed. There is lots to do and see in the area - one week is not enough time!!

The lodge is perfectly comfortable, the beds were amazing and very comfortable, the kitchen had everything you would need. It would be handy to have an iron and an ironing board but it's no great problem!

We would definitely stay here again..... thank you for an amazing holiday! Very happy parents and children (2.5 and 5 year old)

The Perfect Location.

  • 5 of 5

We took a short break to Cornwall recently and were very fortunate to find Hannah's cabins. We were welcomed on arrival and a full Cornish cream tea was ready and waiting for us in our cabin, very nice touch and very welcome after a long drive. The area is so peaceful and just what we wanted and also a perfect location for exploring the Cornish coast. The telescopes where impressive too, but just our luck that all four nights were cloudy ! Anyway, it will be a good reason for another trip. Highly recommended. Clive & Wendy

Ruhig gelegenes Ferienhaus

  • 4 of 5

Das Ferienhaus ist ruhig gelegen, aber trotzdem ist man schnell an der Küste. Super nette Begrüßung in dem sehr sauberen und freundlichen "skandinavischen" Ferienhaus. Preis-/Leistungsverhältnis stimmt.
