Magnolia Lodge – Access Statement


This statement does not contain personal opinions as to Magnolia Lodge’s suitability for those with access needs, but aims to accurately describe the facilities and services we offer our guests/visitors.

Magnolia Lodge is a luxury cedar clad lodge situated at Stover, just 2 minutes’ drive from the A38 and approximately 1 mile from the market town of Newton abbot.  Our location is ideal for those looking to experience all that South Devon has to offer; it’s beaches, English Riviera, Dartmoor, the countryside and the Cathedral Cities of Exeter and Plymouth.  It is built on a flat site, within the grounds of Stover Park Farm, a 10 acre smallholding.

The lodge sleeps up to 4 people (plus travel cot) and has 2 bedrooms, both on ground floor level one of which has an ensuite.  There is also a family bathroom.  The building was converted into holiday accommodation in 2012 and benefits from a spacious, contemporary interior with a real home from home feel.
