Palstone Lodges Situated on the southern edge of Dartmoor National Park, Palstone Lodges is an exclusive, family owned development of luxury, eco-friendly holiday lodges enjoying an idyllic woodland-like setting.
Up to the minute in their design and specification, our lodges are beautifully crafted using solid wood, with full-length windows flooding the rooms with natural light. Their layout creates a feeling of welcome spaciousness and practical simplicity designed to interact with the amazing garden landscape at Palstone by "bringing the outside in".
Our lodges also benefit from a high degree of privacy, seclusion, and a real sense of individuality, given their sensitive positioning and the apportionment of each plot; ultimately creating a series of individual, well-screened havens from which to enjoy the tranquil setting.
The development has been creatively landscaped and planted to an informal-exotic theme, with elegant grasses, individual shrubs, and established specimen trees many of which were planted over thirty years ago.
We provide a well-managed, relaxed, and secure holiday home environment. Unlike similar developments where you may find commercial subletting Palstone Lodges restricts the use to owners, their friends, and family.
With a Palstone Lodge you can truly just "turn the key" and start enjoying your unique holiday home immediately; whether it be for a midweek break, long weekend, or even longer holidays!
