Clawford Lakes Resort and Spa, a stunning 80-acre holiday destination set to be one of the most desirable leisure locations in the UK, has today released new imagery and details about its luxury ‘lake pods’ which are now available to book from April 2022. 

The brand-new lake pods are perched right on the water’s edge, with a glass wall flooding the cabin with natural light and private balcony offering incredible views out onto the sparkling lake. Perfect as a romantic cosy hideaway, they offer all the authenticity of a traditional ‘camping-style’ trip but with home comforts such as a compact but practical kitchen, open plan living, kitchen and dining area and bathroom with walk-in shower, a perfect blend of modern living and close-to-nature tranquillity.

The pods are also perfect for keen anglers all year round with all 17 of the lakes on site well-stocked with a variety of fish including tench, rudd and carp. With a latch on the decking, guests literally can’t get closer to the fish and can enjoy fishing directly from their own terrace. There’s also an onsite tackle shop open every day for all the essentials, staffed by local experts who can advise on how to get the fish biting and spectacular sea fishing at Bude is just half an hour away.

Nature reigns supreme 

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 in Devon as well as exploring Bude, Padstow and St. Ives.

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.  

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 Spring 2022. 

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 lake pods have to be seen to be believed so we’re delighted to share the latest imagery and details about this unique accommodation. Our aim with these pods was to ensure that guests could get as close to the water as possible and everything about the design reflects this from the glass wall to the private balcony. 

The lake pods offer fantastic year-round accommodation for couples looking for a cosy break or anglers seeking their most memorable fishing trip ever. They’re a true slice of luxury and tranquillity in a truly special place in Devon. We can’t wait to welcome the first guests in April 2022, they’re in for a real treat!”
