About Woolley Lodge

A Victorian lodge set within a secluded woodland on the Arlington estate.

Once a Victorian gardener’s lodge, this cosy two-bedroom nook sits at the top of a little-used driveway, accessed from the A39, behind elegant wrought-iron gates.Originally planned to be the grand entrance to the estate, it looks out over the woodland and wildflowers of the 600-year old Arlington. Inside, classic interiors and a log-burner combine with a modern kitchen and bathroom with underfloor heating. 

You can bring your dog here too. With miles of footpaths that criss-cross the 2,700 acre estate straight on your doorstep, you’ll never be short of walking routes for you and pup. 

The town and beach of Barnstaple is just six miles from here. You’ll also be on the outskirts of Exmoor National Park, so it won’t take you long to drive into its hilly moorlands and wooded valleys.

About the Acorn rating

We have applied a 1-5 acorn rating to each cottage to be used only as a guide that covers location, style of interior and facilities you may be looking for. The range runs from 1 Acorn at a more basic level such as Bird How which due to its stunning yet remote location doesn’t have a caretaker through to 5 Acorns at the highest level – such as Shute Barton.

Cottage pricing is not judged on the Acorn rating alone and as all our cottages are of an individual nature we recommend that all factors are considered when making your choice.
