May half term blog
On another gloriously sunny day I had to work in the morning but promised the kids we’d do something fun in the afternoon. Again, knowing the beach would be standing room only, we avoided that and headed to the outdoor pool at Stoke Lodge Hotel. This running of this lovely hotel has recently been handed over to daughters Sam, Chelsie and Sigourney who always greet you with big smiles and a warm welcome.
One of the reasons we love Stoke Lodge Hotel outdoor pool and terrace is that it’s so relaxed and comfortable. There’s the beautiful and warm outdoor pool surrounded by sun loungers and lots of seating as well as a large terrace area to sit and enjoy a drink, lunch or afternoon tea. Nothing is too much trouble for the staff and it can be enjoyed by children and adults alike. There’s also the use of the indoor pool, sauna and jacuzzi included in the price so if you fancy a more spa like experience, just head indoors.
Having rushed from work, we ordered lunch and drinks by the pool. There’s a great selection of delicious food, all very reasonably priced and it’s served to you poolside! It’s about as close as you can get to being on holiday without actually leaving home! The sun shines directly on you all day here so it’s easy to just spend hours playing in the pool and then lounging with a glass of something cold.
If you’re looking to escape the crowds on a hot day, then head to Stoke Lodge Hotel. The whole service from start to finish is very friendly and professional and you will leave feeling totally relaxed (and hopefully with worn out children!). Highly recommended and discounts apply for guests of Luxury Devon Escapes.
