Reviewed by Liam 4th August 2018

The lodge was perfect in a quiet, secure location. The self contained garden was great to make it private but also our little boy was very safe running around in there too. It would be the same if you had a dog. The lodge itself was lovely inside, well equipped, clean and tidy. The decking was a real sun trap too! Loved it.

Beautiful lodge, with a beautiful garden. Owners really helpful and lovely too.

Reviewed by Michelle 14th July 2018

Perfect spot, a few minutes off the A30 but then if you go in the opposite direction out of the house you drive down country lanes to beaches and other great areas. A lovely family and the children loved having the cats, dog and goat to say hello to each day.

Really great location and not far from so many cool places. Garden was a great place for the kids to play and a great place to wind down after a day exploring.

North Cornwall

Embark on clifftop wanderings along the South West Coast Path to discover ancient myths and legends; King Arthur at Tintagel Castle, or the giant at the Bedruthan Steps. Surfers flock here to ride the famous swell that carved the dramatic coastline, and Bude and Newquay are havens for the sport. From sandy bays and beaches to the seafood delights of Padstow or thrills of Camel Creek Adventure Park, North Cornwall is brimming with things to do; trails to trek, cream teas to gobble, and adventure to be had.

West Cornwall

Let the history, romance and raw beauty of West Cornwall whisk you through time, into rocky coves and along sweeping sands to Land’s End where the UK slips into the Atlantic. Discover an oasis of flora owed to the rare geology of the Lizard peninsula. You can kayak around Godrevy Island, wander the galleries of St Ives, catch a performance at the open-air Minack Theatre, and still make it to Marazion for dinner: St Michael’s Mount makes the ultimate backdrop.

South Cornwall

Tucked away from the swell of the Atlantic pretty fishing harbours sleep, and lush carpets of greenery roll up to craggy cliffs. Discover the fishing and smuggling history in Kingsand and Cawsand, or walk the South West Coast Path from Fowey to the tiny tidal beach at Readymoney Cove. Sample local ales in St Austell before visiting Charlestown’s tall ships, the enchantments of the Eden Project, or The Lost Gardens of Heligan. From vibrant towns to secret beaches and exhilarating days out, the south has it all.
