Valley view lakes is a little gem, very pretty and Well looked after. The owners/Hosts Richard, Elaine & Fiona are very friendly and helpful nothing is too much trouble. We were in Kingfisher lodge, the lodge is very well laid out the rooms spacious, the main bedroom and en-suite are very generous Nice big TV in the livingroom, and TV's in the bedrooms. Nice kitchen with everything you could want. Dinning table, decking and seating and a lovely Hotub. Theres nice little touches like milk, tea etc for your arrival and a couple of disposable Bar-B-Q's.
Fishing is excellent I caught over 200 fish over the week, Mirror and Common Carp, Bream, Rudd, Roach ( a lot of the Common Carp seem to be a hybrid between common Carp and ghost Carp )but still lovely looking fish.The fish put up such a fight. Best fishing I've ever been to while on holiday. There are some pure Ghost carp and golden Orfe, Tench.
I found Method fishing with pellets or bread to be very good. 
and loads of wild life lots of different birds I saw a kingfisher a few times while fishing. 
Westward ho well worth a visit, Great fishing shop there,    summerlands-tackle.co.uk
as well as some great gift shops and a lovely beach. The local community shop in Buckland Brewer is good run by volunteers and well worth a visit.
All in all we had a wonderful week, home from home, meet some nice and friendly people in the other lodges.

We stayed in the Kingfisher lodge and it was perfect. Fully equipped kitchen with everything you could possibly need! Beautiful, peaceful location and the starry sky at night is something I've never seen before - SO beautiful! Such a needed break after the difficult year and we would love to come back whenever we can! Thank you!!!

Amidst the terrible situation of the world at the moment coping with the coronavirus and not knowing when all will get back to normal. We have had a truly lovely week here being isolated from everything and just going out for country walks. We absolutely love it, the peace and tranquility and the beautiful setting.
Thank you Richard and Elaine for keeping this place so lovely, and keeping it going in a difficult time
