High on the hills of the Aune Valley is Loddiswell, a historic village dating back as far as Roman times. Three miles from Kingsbridge, this pretty village is surrounded by leafy riverwalks and ancient woodland. On the northern outskirts of the parish is Blackdown Rings, the remains of a ring-and-bailey hill fort dating back to the twelfth century and with views that stretch for miles. On a quiet lane, opposite the village green, is Lydiard Cottage, a cosy and characterful holiday home with some lovely features, such as its open log burner and exposed timber beams. Higher Rose Cottage is a charming south facing dwelling close to Loddiswell’s friendly village pub and general stores. Sleeping up to five guests, Higher Rose, is also one of our many dog-friendly cottages.
