Commanding a tranquil and somewhat idyllic setting on the Devonshire/Somerset border Whipcott Water is perfect for romantic hideaways and relaxing family breaks. The exclusive cluster of contemporary styled lodges offer beautiful views and all the comforts of home along with some luxurious touches.

The lodges have an excellent location just 10 minute drive from the M5, meaning that all the attractions of the region are within easy reach. You'll find picture postcard villages and the outstanding natural beauty of Exmoor and Dartmoor just a short drive away while the very impressive Cheddar Gorge Caves and the superb clean sandy beaches of North and South Devon are just a little further away.

Many guests choose to simply relax in the luxurious lodges, all of which have private gardens or patios with secluded hot tubs!  Just a short stroll away is the local pub offering a warm welcome and superb food and drink. A picturesque tree lined country lane separates these lodges from the Grand Western Canal Country Park and a footpath provides easy access to the towpath from where you can enjoy walks cycle rides and fishing as well as walking.

There are five types of lodge to choose from at Whipcott Water including the Towpath and Wicket which are contemporary cottage style lodges.

Whipcott Water Reviews

Ahmed Sing
We honestly could find no fault. Very good.
Miss S Therwell
We wanted somewhere special and as these lodges were part of the Autograph collection we decided to give them a go. We are so glad we did. I have never felt so chilled out. The lodge was beautiful and had a hot tub tucked away on the deck outside which was bliss. The local pub is easy to get to and reasonable for food and drinks. The curry was amazing.

Holiday was very enjoyable. We were looking for a nice peaceful break and that is what Wharf offered us. Only slight comment is that the temperature values on the oven had worn off so it was difficult to set an accurate temperature, but as we only used it once it wasn't really a problem.

amazing long weekend away.. We were looking for something quiet and miles away from anything and it did not disappoint in the slightest, Sue was amazing and if we needed anything we just had to ask and we had the warmest welcome from the softest dog possible, don't pass up on the chance to experience Hilltop or any other of the available cottages.

10/10 and we will be back.

Lovely break. Clean and fabulous lodge. The owner was very helpful and friendly. The walks down the canal were brilliant, especially to The Globe at Sempford Peverall which is outstanding for food and beer. You can also hire bikes from here as well. We loved the hot tub too. We will definately stay again. X
Jane
This is the third time we have visited Whipcott Water and the second time in the Warf cottage which gives a idea of how much we enjoy the break. The cottage is always clean and it is a nice touch that the basics are already there for you; toiletries in the bathrooms and washing up liquids in the kitchen just in case you forget them.
Jackie
A great location especially for days out. Lots of nice restaurants around the area, would recommend most of them. Owner Sue was very helpful and a lovely person and our stay was stress free as set up of Hopper was perfect and ideal for a disabled person with many needs.
Jody
Amazing break away from home
Diane
I was a lovely location it was just to far away from everything but if you want a relaxing and secluded holiday it is the place to go, would recommend to all to go
Michaela
Enjoyed this holiday very much , peaceful and beautiful scenery and the lodge was exceptionally clean didn't find one issue with it.Although the garden was small the hot tub was in a secluded area which was nice. Sue the owner was lovely and made sure we were happy and settled and gave us information of what was near etc. Would recommend !
