Stylish log cabin-style holiday property with two bedrooms is close to sandy beaches and traditional Cornish seaside villages. A perfect base for a family break.

This delightful log cabin in the Cornish countryside is perfect for families and their four-legged friends who love being outside. Set within an enclosed garden, the patio doors open to allow the inside and outside spaces to merge seamlessly, offering children and dogs a safe environment to explore. Just off the A30, it is easily accessible, yet in the opposite direction from the main road you have country lanes that lead you and your family to Cornwall’s rugged coastline and some of its most stunning beaches. You and your pooches will never tire of the wealth of natural beauty in this area.

If you love the great outdoors, holidays probably don’t get much better than a log cabin in the countryside, especially one with a hammock in the garden. Stepping inside, the open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner is a sociable place for everyone to spend time together. When you’re ready to retire for the evening, the bedrooms are on the same floor. There is one double bedroom and one triple, consisting of a bunk bed with a double and a single. Compact and comfortable, there is ample room for everyone and the hard floors throughout mean you don’t have to worry about muddy paw prints on the carpet.

The central location offers guests the opportunity to explore the north and south coasts of Cornwall. To the north, there are several beautiful beaches, such as the vast, sandy Perranporth (7.5 miles) and the sheltered cove of St Agnes with its shops and pubs (6 miles). Nearby, the heathland of St Agnes Head offers breathtaking views of the coastline and is a great place to watch the sunset. To the south, there is the maritime town of Falmouth (12 miles), with English Heritage’s Pendennis Castle to visit as well as boat trips to places such as the exclusive village of St Mawes.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

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.

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.
