About Andy Holliday
We love this part of Cornwall and now that our children are grown up we try to spend as much time as we can staying in the lodge ourselves. Our children also still love it and visit whenever they can.
Andy Holliday purchased this House in 2002
Why Andy Holliday chose Saint Ann's Chapel
We love the setting, the views and the peace and quiet and the on-site swimming. Also a great base for exploring both Cornwall and Devon.

Comfortable lodge, great location
Perfect location for exploring the best of Devon and Cornwall. The Tamar Valley itself is beautiful, with fantastic canoeing on the river (just down the road) and walks and cream teas at nearby Cotehele. Coastal villages of Fowey, Looe and Polperro within easy striking distance and great surfing on the north coast (Polzeath about an hour away). The lodge itself is ideal - very comfortable and spacious, with everything you might need. Fantastic big balcony overlooking the valley for al fresco dining. We'll visit again!
Thanks Katie, glad you enjoyed your stay and look forward to seeing you again soon.

Comfortable, clean and great location.
Really enjoyed our stay, the lodge was very comfortable, clean and well equipped. Loved the location, the site was clean and well looked after and it was great having use of the pool and gym included. Helpful friendly staff on site as well, who were happy to give tips on some great places to visit in the area. Especially enjoyed Cothele and Lydford Gorge, which are both just down the road. Would definitely recommend!
So glad to hear you enjoyed your stay. Hope to see you again soon! Best wishes, Andy & Pippa
Lovely Lodge and relaxing stay, ideally situated, very friendly
We really enjoyed our stay and even on rainy days we were able to enjoy some lovely walks which are within easy reach. Bar restaurant on site was excellent - as were the pools. All the family catered for and remained happy, including children and dogs! (So lovely to have our dogs feel welcome too). Knew there wasn't a washing machine before we booked so am NOT making a criticism but it would have been lovely had there been one. Please consider Andy as with four children and my 'other half' very regimental about how much luggage we are allowed to take on holiday, as well as restricted space with seven of us in the vehicle its difficult to not be able to wash clothes after muddy walks! (I feel it would be a tad expensive to use the laundry facility on site for the amount of washing I get through even when on holiday!)
Definitely want to go again and hope to be booking up soon. Thanks for all your help.
Many thanks Marie and Ron. So pleased to hear that you had a good holiday. We'll give the washing machine some thought! Best wishes. Andy & Pippa.
Great holiday in a nice site
Thank you we had a great family holiday and was plenty to do in and around the site...would recommend to anyone who is looking for a nice relaxing family holiday.
Many thanks the Green family.
Great to hear that you enjoyed your stay. Best wishes. Andy & Pippa
Great area to explore
Nice location. House could of been slightly better equipped. Another full shower would of served up to 8 people better.
Maintenance support was unresponsive to our phone calls.
The site itself looks tired and needs updating. Tennis courts were not usable. I would if happily paid alittle more to have modern usable leisure activities on site.
You do need to travel to explore the area, which has so many places to visit and things to keep a family busy.
We would definitely holiday in Cornwall again,but expect alittle more from the accomadation and on site facilities.
Sorry to hear that you were disappointed. However, we have to just say that the lodge is 'as advertised' with one shower. Guests needing two showers should obviously consider alternative accommodation. We did not receive any messages or calls about any maintenance issues what-so-ever. We have a maintenance team of two people on 24/7 call out. Agreed on the tennis courts which is why we do not feature/mention them anywhere in our advert. Seems a little churlish to complain about a facility not expected or advertised! Great that you liked Cornwall.
Great lodge in a fantastic location!
The property was easy to find with the directions provided, myself and 2 friends stayed for a week to celebrate our 30th birthdays and had a fantastic time. The lodge is very spacious, clean and well equipped. The on site facilities are great and the site is a good location for a lot of local and main attractions. Although the weather was not kind to us during our stay, it did not dampen our spirits! Would certainly recommend to friends and family.
Great to hear that you enjoyed your stay Kirsty.
