    Nestled amid 45 acres of picturesque parkland with 3 fishing lakes, this charming hotel boasts a tranquil and relaxed environment within the natural beauty of Dunkeswell, Devon. During your stay at Lake View Manor you can enjoy a stroll through the surrounding meadows, listening to the birds and admiring the beautiful trees and wild flowers. Alternatively you can explore the 3 private lakes, where you can often see leaping carp. After a long day of exploring the area, you can return to the friendly and welcoming Manor to enjoy traditional home-cooked meals in a relaxed environment. After dinner, why not sample the locally brewed Otter ales in the bar, for a true taste of Devon. Whether you are here for a short break, holiday or business trip, you ll find 17 comfortable rooms to suit individuals, couples and families. There are excellent facilities and idyllic views, perfect for families, fishing trips or last minute getaways. The Restaurant at Lakeview Manor is open to residents and non-residents. Guests can enjoy fresh local produce in a relaxed atmosphere, both lunchtimes and evenings. The hog roasts are fast becoming legendary, with a whole west country pig roasted on a spit, and serving upto 80 guests at a time. Pride of place on the well stocked bar is a selection of locally brewed Otter Ales offering a true taste of Devon, full of individual flavour and aromas. The main lake at Lakeview Manor covers two acres and is well stocked with carp, tench, rudd and perch. Both fishing lakes are open to residents and club members only. There are many outstanding sea-fishing venues nearby. Particularly recommending the mackerel fishing or booking a boat trip from Beer, Exmouth or Lyme Regis, nothing quite beats deep-sea fishing for an exhilarating day out. Devon has over 40 golf courses to choose from including Heath, Parkland, Links golf and a championship course at Saunton Sands. The hotel is happy to arrange trips for Golf Societies including club recommendations and bookings.
