“4 Bed Lodge with Spa Pool”
Reviewed 2 July 2014 for a stay in March 2014

Capsulated in a carved out piece of nature with each season revealing its own story of colours and displays. All from your own vantage point of a personal swiss style balcony front. Just like the changing weather gauge of a cuckoo clock you will find yourself in and out of the topsy turvy lodge embracing the merging scenes unfold around you.
The lodge is situated in an idyllic location set back apart from its neighbours and surroundings on this exclusive Cornish estate. Giving you the best of both with an option to recluse, relax, rewind and reflect, enclosed in the tranquility of the setting. Alternatively explore and utilise the facilities that are on offer.
The concept of sleeping downstairs works well as comfort has clearly not been an after thought. Even furnishing for guests has attention for detail in all areas from beds to lighting, sofas to dining space and chairs.
A refreshing change to discover a fully equipped kitchen diner with more than enough cutlery, utensils, seating and space to accommodate the 4 bedrooms.
Residing during the low season had a charm and stillness which other than potential parking confusion in busier times, no other reason would appear this atmosphere not to be replicated in the high season.
The personal spa pool is a fun added touch and opens the accommodation to an experience, that can cater for groups looking for a well earned break or special celebration, but also the place for a longer family holiday.
Well equipped, well situated, comfortable, airy and spacious. Located in the most beautiful county of England. A wonderful place to enjoy family and friends and make shared memories. Centrally located to make the most of the west country in both Devon and Cornwall.

“Nice quiet site for a relaxing stay!”
Reviewed 2 June 2014 for a stay in May 2014

We booked a few weeks before our trip away.
The lodge has some great points and some we would point out without moaning too much.
Good points:
+ Great quiet location, peaceful and lovely views
+ Balconies were fantastic to sit out and enjoy a glass of wine and a BBQ
+ The hot tub was amazing and a real luxury
+ Recently renovated rooms, kitchen, bathroom etc

Points to highlight:
+ The beds were not that comfy. Certainly not the worst but could have done with more padding.
+ The floor upstairs creeked really badly. We have an 8 month and was tip toeing around after she had gone to bed
+ Where the sofas upstairs are sofa beds they are not as comfy to sit on.

All in all we had a great time away.

“All our Cornish Dreams come true”
Reviewed 24 May 2014 for a stay in May 2014

Perfect location,lovely views over the lush Green Tamar Valley with Dartmoor in the far distance.
Exactly as described ,but actually even better that we possibly ever dreamed of.
The house is extremely clean and all appliances are new with good sized Freeview TV and a DVD player,
For those who want to prepare complex meals there is a large kitchen with everything you could possibly need including a dishwasher .
The beds are very comfortable,so we all had the best nights sleep
There are patio doors in the upstairs living room which open onto the upper balcony
The downstairs double bedroom also has patio doors which opens onto the lower balcony( The large hot tub is situated on the lower balcony which has privacy but still has the lovely views)
in the morning open the curtains and the sunshine streams in,open the doors to listen to glorious birdsong whilst lying in bed
Totally decadent
Loved every minute of our stay in Valley lodge,will definitely be staying there again
Also should mention that there is good mobile phone reception in the house and free WIFI in the Honicombe bar/reception area
