Stayed at Valleyview in November 2023 and absolutely lovely, relaxing break for 4 nights. Stunning location and only a stones throw from Bideford where I live. Lodges have everything you need and are spotless and hot tub was great even during the rain. So accommodating and friendly and even took time to greet us and showed around another lodge where all the fish congregate (Kingfisher) Booking another stay soon. Book early to avoid disappointment!

Was so lovely to be back for our much needed short break, after what felt like a lifetime ago. Have been enjoying our โ€˜girls weekendโ€™ for about 11 years now and love it just as much as our very first visit! Looking forward to staying again soon.

This is our first stay at Valley View Lakes & Lodges which we found to be very a relaxing and peaceful holiday, unfortunately the weather was rather changable but nothing we couldn't cope with. Moorhen Lodge had everything that we needed and was very comfortable with the hot tub being an added bonus. Steve and Meghan enjoyed the totally peaceful fishing location and caught Common & Mirror Carp from both lakes to 11lb along with some nice Roach & Rudd. Steve having fished for over fifty years rates the carp in VVL&L as amongst some of the best conditioned carp hes ever caught and will definately be returning, thanks to Richard, Elaine & Fiona for a wonderful stay.

We stayed in Kingfisher lodge at the end of May for a week to get away and relax. Richard, Elaine and Fiona were most welcoming and even showed us around the other lodges when they were being cleaned. We had an amazing time catching fish from the two lakes and will definitely be booking another stay in the future, as we never even got to sample the hot tub, the fishing was so addictive. Also still on the look-out for those otters that live in the stream at the back.

Spend my 40th in the kingfisher lodge for a week Had amazing time. Richard the host along with his daughter made me feel welcome from day 1. The lodge itself was 9/10 only because I had problems with the tv. Other than that canโ€™t complain it had everything you need. The grounds are perfect. 10/10. Safe , clean, private, just beautiful. Did a few days on the lakes and caught loads of good size fish. Loads to do and see around the area Iโ€™ve been all over the world staying in 5star hotels or luxury cabins but this place is heaven I came back a new person. Thank you for having us. See you soon

We found Valley View by chance and booked about 10 days beforehand. What a find. 😁 The Lodge was spotless and had everything you could possibly need including fly screens on all the windows and front door. On waking the first morning all I could hear was the trickling of the stream and birdsong, so beautifully quiet. Fishing was fabulous despite the โ€˜Monsterโ€™ snapping Franks pole, we had an amazing time, fishing by day and relaxing in the hot tub in the evening, the only thing I regret is not taking binoculars to watch the birds, I missed the Kingfisher but watched a pair of woodpeckers from the hot tub one evening. The grounds were lovely and well kept and Richard and Fiona were amazing and informative hosts, thank you so much for allowing us to stay in this beautiful settting, we will certainly return another time, and will not hesitate to recommend .

Back for the 9th time and as usual the cabin is spotlessly maintained and looked after. Fishing was the best ever although the elusive bigger fish were still hiding out. Managed some good shots of the kingfisher at last! As always a perfect week away from life!! See you again soon.
