Luxury Accommodation In the Heart of Devon

Welcome to Knapp House Lodges

Spring is such a lovely time on Exmoor so it is with much sadness that we have had to close for the duration of the Coronavirus outbreak. I know many visitors think Exmoor would be the perfect place to self-isolate and just enjoy the peace and quiet with lovely walks on the moors, but sadly our local services are fully stretched just trying to get enough food and medicines to local residents. It breaks my heart to tell you at the moment you need to stay away but I hope we will meet on the other side of this crisis when Exmoor will be here, as beautiful as ever and we will have our usual cream tea and warm welcome waiting for you.

An Interesting History A Timeless Location

Knapp House is built in the Art and Crafts style and is one of the most beautiful houses on Exmoor. The lodges reflect something of its fascinating history whether as a family hunting retreat in the 1920s or its time as a boy’s school post war. Think family cocktail parties and Sunday picnics or dozens of schoolboys ready to ride across country or swim in the Barle.

 Stay with us and get your imagination going.
