Clawford Lakes Resort and Spa, a new, luxury holiday destination based in Devon, has today released new imagery and details about its ‘floating lodges’ which are now available to book from April 2022.

The brand-new floating lodges are the latest in a series of unique accommodation options created by Clawford Lakes after their lake pods were announced in November. The lodges are securely moored within a lake setting, allowing guests to wake up every day to the shimmer of water lapping soothingly around them in the tranquillity of Devonshire countryside.

Perfect for couples on a romantic getaway, the lodges can also comfortably house up to four people, neatly balancing the romance of living on water with the luxuries of a traditional lodge, connected by a pontoon-style walkway to the banks of the lake. The unique accommodation benefits from open plan living fitted out with modern facilities including a kitchen and dining area, and a bathroom with walk-in shower.

Once inside, guests are treated to glorious views across the lake looking out through the giant glass wall at the end of the lodge, blending seamlessly into the landscape. Visitors will also have exclusive access to their own private decking, the perfect setting for a sunset cocktail in summer, or warming hot chocolate in winter.

Best of both worlds 

The exclusive Clawford Lakes Resort and Spa is 22 miles north of Dartmoor National Park, and just a 30-minute drive from Cornwall’s north coast, making it a perfect base for visitors who want to spend time taking in the stunning natural scenery the south west has to offer, as well as exploring the towns and villages of the local area.

The site is also situated within the North Devon Biosphere, one of six reserves in the UK created by UNESCO that finds creative ways for people and nature to thrive side-by-side.

Furry friends

Unlike many resorts, Clawford Lakes Resort allows guests to bring their four-legged friends for free to any of their accommodation. Clawford Lakes has also recently partnered with Hearing Dogs for Deaf People, with £5 from every lodge booking donated to the charity. With vast open spaces and many lakes to choose from, Clawford promises to be a haven for guests — as well as those covered in fur!

One-of-a-Kind Facilities

Clawford Lakes Resort and Spa will offer a quality and range of luxury leisure options that are currently unavailable in this part of Devon. As well as providing spectacular high-quality accommodation and world-class fishing, from July 2022 Clawford Lakes Resort and Spa will also feature a Honka-built swimming pool and spa facility. The Scandinavian design will perfectly marry with the remote countryside, and will be made with the highest-spec raw materials to create a calm and sophisticated leisure centre, complete with sauna, treatment rooms and infinity pool right on the lake side.

Guests will be able to take advantage of Clawford Lakes’ excellent waterside location, with paddle boarding, kayaking, cycling, leisure walks and bush craft activities all available from summer 2022, so there is something to suit everyone.

The site will also include a quality restaurant and bar, providing a broad menu created using the very best local produce.

Stephen Twiss, CEO at Lakeshore Leisure Group commented:

“Our brand-new floating lodges allow guests to experience the best of both worlds, with the tranquillity of a boat on the water, and the luxury of a traditional lodge. Our aim with these lodges was to provide guests with glorious views that they’ll never tire of, making them the ideal romantic getaway where couples can spend their time gazing through the giant windows, or sitting on their private decking right on the lake. 

"The floating lodges are perfect all year round being cool in summer, for outdoor activities, or warm in the colder months, where cosying up with a blanket is top of the agenda. Luxury was the priority with these lodges, and the closeness to the lake make them the ultimate location for a calm and relaxing stay.”
