Why Katie Richardson chose South Hams

My nana is the proprietor of the property I look after this site for her. Having discovered Salcombe in the 50's when she visited on holiday, Our whole family has come back again and again. Nana brought her children here (my father) and now nanas children bring theirs. After 4 generations she wanted to buy somewhere where we could all stay on our Salcombe holidays.

Soar is just far enough away from Salcombe to escape the crowds but still within easy reach to pop to the butchers or for an ice-cream.

For those who like a good walk, the cliff walk into Salcombe offers exceptional views and some great pubs along the way.

What makes this chalet unique

This lodge benefits from a fantastic rural location, where the kids can run free and play on the playground. The veranda is perfect for soaking up the sun and we have a gas BBQ great for long summer days. Marlborough is a only a short drive to the co-op offering daily fresh bread, fish and meat. Its also licensed. Tesco in Knightsbridge to also deliver to the site which is an added bonus if you've had a long drive and don't want to pack everything. The lodge really is a home from home for us though and as such we've facilitated it with all utensils you should need. We also leave a nice bottle of bubbles for your arrival.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you Betty for a most enjoyable stay, the lodge really felt like a home from home. The kids loved running about in the fields while we relaxed on the balcony. We will be back

Lovely quiet location and accommodation

  • 5 of 5

We had everything we needed in this property for a great weeks stay. Having space for the children with the on site playground was great. The lodge with all its facilities meant not having to worry about washing clothes or dishes meaning days could be spent out and about exploring. Would highly recommend!

Absolutely wonderful

  • 5 of 5

This property was a dream. If you want total seclusion grom the rigours of everyday living, come to the retreat at Soar Mill. No noise, no hustle and bustle of the modern life. Peace quiet, birdsong and beauty. Recharge your batteries at Katie Haworth's lodge.
