About Barbara Thornton
I am a true Devonian. Born in Teignmouth and only living 2 miles from there now ... it could be said that I haven't gone far! I am retired now but I am fortunate to have had a very interesting life .... I grew up on my parents Devon farm, trained and worked as a nurse, have run a couple of successful businesses and now with my husband am enjoying retirement and fitting in as much travelling as time and health will allow.
Barbara Thornton purchased this Cottage in 1998
Why Barbara Thornton chose Lustleigh
We have always loved Dartmoor, and Lustleigh in particular, so when, one day after a walk and visit to the Cleave Inn, we saw a 'For Sale' board outside Honeysuckle and Beechnut Lodges we were excited at the prospect of owning these beautiful little gems. At first we ran Honeysuckle as a holiday let and it was extremely popular but a few years later a house move meant it was impractical for this to continue and we sold it to a couple staying there on holiday to use as their own special retreat. We kept Beechnut and for many years it was occupied by a long-term tenant. Now he has left and we have completely refurbished this gorgeous little lodge to make a perfect holiday home for 2. You are sure to enjoy a holiday in Lustleigh and be very comfortable in pretty little Beechnut Lodge.
What makes this Cottage unique
Beechnut is a lovable little house. Perfect for young and old, it is supremely comfortable with electric adjustable twin-linked beds (made up as a super-king on request), electric recliner sofa, a 49inch 4K TV, super fast broadband WiFI and a lovely natural, private garden. It is set in one of the most picturesque villages in Devon and is within the Dartmoor National Park. Just come and see for yourself I am sure that you too will be entranced by this quaint 200 year old 'bungalow'.

Damage and incidentals

A winter stay. Lovely village that must be stunning in the summer.
The lodge is very compact with a charming garden that would probably shine in the summer months.
Thank you for taking the time to leave us a review. It is a shame the weather wasn't more kind during your holiday so that you could enjoy the lovely garden. As a lodge gatehouse Beechnut is indeed compact but it is unique and very comfortable and I trust that you enjoyed your stay.
Close to pub, local shop and tea room. Plus cycle route on old train line to Bovey Tracey.
Absolutely super cottage with everything you could need for a break away. Lovely start up provisions to get you going, making you feel welcome. A very clean and comfortable place to stay. I would certainly recommend it.
The lodge is small, but with a large garden. From this spot, access to Dartmoor is simple.
