About Robert Chamberlain
An English family of four, with 7 and 9 year old kids.
Robert Chamberlain purchased this Cottage in 2015
Why Robert Chamberlain chose North Huish
We've stayed in the Lodge a couple times over the years and has some fantastic holidays - then it came on the market so we snapped it up ! It's so close to all our favourite places - Bigbury Beach, Salcombe, Dartmouth and Dartmoor.
What makes this Cottage unique
For us, the most important thing is that the kids love it too - the heated outdoor and indoor pools, tennis court, loads of running around and exploring space. At to top it all the local pub and shop are only a 10 mins stroll away.

Cosy cottage, with shared pool in a lovely setting
We had a lovely week in the cottage and the owner, Robert was great at liaising with us. The cottage is located on a quiet private woodland estate and shares a communal pool. The pool is not the largest but was enough for 2 families to play at a time - albeit we only had to do this twice due to good timings! There is a pub and small shop within walking distance, however we didn't use the pub as we were out and about during the day. The tennis court is a lovely touch and we managed to squeeze in a quick game. There is also a cute hut with table football a stones throw from the house which my husband a son used a couple of times. We had a little walk in the grounds - take your wellies as it can be soggy! It's a great location to base yourself to visit Dartmouth, Dartmoor, Salcombe, Plymouth, and all the various beaches in the area. We had a few rainy days but there was lots to do - the sea life centre in Plymouth was fantastic, I've been to a few but this is by far the best! The fish and chips at Rockfish were delicious and a little boat can take you from near there across the water if you fancy a walk around the harbour. Beware of traffic in Plymouth! We hired a boat at Whitestrand in Salcombe which was the highlight of the trip. Lots of nice places to eat in the area including The Ship Inn at Ughborough. The beaches all around our fantastic - take care with the narrow lanes!
Thanks very much ! - really pleased you all enjoyed your stay at the Lodge.
It's even more lovely in the summer so do come back again soon :)
