The Lodge itself is large and extremely well equipped. It caters for 6. There are three bedrooms comprising two doubles and one twin and one en-suite shower room and one family bathroom with bath and shower. The Lodge is extremely light and has white wood ceilings throughout. The kitchen caters for cooks and non cooks alike. It's very well equipped but also has a dishwasher and microwave for lazy eating. An oven and a gas hob are also there for the chefs. There is a separate laundry area with washer dryer . Storage is not an issue with this Lodge as each room has a wardrobe and chest of drawers. This Lodge is a home and as such we want you to treat it as such. There is Internet, TV, DVD, CD and IPod docking and we provide many board games and books and magazines. There are even fishing nets and buckets and spades. It doesn't feel like a holiday home and stands out from the rest, as there are many pieces of art and other artifacts around, with good quality light fittings and adjustable light levels. The Lodge is on a prime site, sheltered and not overlooked. The twin sets of patio doors lead out to the raised deck area where a table and chairs are provided. Good quality bedlinen and towels are supplied by the owner.

If you are getting married locally or attending a function then please enquire about what we can offer to make the stay special.

The site itself boasts very beautiful grounds and has weekly tours of the historic monument. It has a swimming pool and sauna on site and a bar/restaurant and small shop providing basic needs and newspapers. The reception desk is open daily and can help with local knowledge.

If you are thinking of taking a holiday in the sun then please check out our other property in the South of France, an old Bergerie 7 minutes from the Mediterranean beaches and 20 minutes to Perpignan and less than an hour to the Spanish border. It sleeps 8 in four bedrooms and has a vast lounge over 50ft long.

We have also just completed a huge new kitchen and additional dining area which leads out to a suntrap walled garden areas. The whole house is surrounded by stone walls and has numerous terraces and garden areas.

About Caz

The Lodge is owned by an architect.

Why Caz chose Saint John

The Lodge is in the most idyllic part of Cornwall with the best beaches just across the road. It's wild and untamed yet within 10 minutes drive you come to the beautiful villages of \Kingsand/Cawsand where you will find sheltered sandy coves and clear safe water for swimming.

What makes this Chalet unique

The location for the Lodge has to be a big attraction with miles of coastline to chose from. Avoid the cars thundering through Cornwall and enjoy the peaceful setting on The Rame. It's not isolated though, as Plymouth, Looe and further afield are all within easy reach.

                                                                  Dominic C.

                                                                  This was our first UK holiday that didn't include staying with family & friends, so the lodge was perfect being very homely and in an ideal location. The facilities were excellent, with everything you could need. We had our 2 dogs with us also and the deck area allowed them the space to be outside whenever they needed as the gate made it secure - even if the cows were a field away, they could still be seen and barked at. We used the lodge as a base to explore further into Cornwall - the lovely beaches just a short walk were ideal both for us and the dogs. Everything about the lodge was comfortable, bed, lounge - with a good full kitchen and dining table, we actually sat at the table to eat - something we don't even do at home - perfect would recommend the lodge. Caz the owner was brilliant at keeping in contact prior to our stay, sending through recommendations on places to eat & visit - we had an excellent Sunday lunch at the Finnygook Inn @ Crafthole - recommended by Caz. I would like to add to the list - Inkies Smokeshouse @ Golitha Falls makes a great place to lunch and a walk.

                                                                  Overall excellent holiday, thanks to a great lodge in a great location.

                                                                  Lovely lodge

                                                                  Jean Q.Winchester, Hampshire

                                                                  Nice & clean, specious and comfortable plus lovely location

                                                                  lovely Whitsand bay

                                                                  Alan H.

                                                                  Great location - the accommodation was perfect for our family of 4, cosy when needed and cool when it warmed up :) everything you need in the kitchen if your self catering/cooking. We ate out most days at the many restaurants/cafes and pubs.

                                                                  Beach is close by, an easy 5 min walk but a steep climbs back up.

                                                                  Some narrow lanes around so be careful if you have a big car.

                                                                  Peaceful short break

                                                                  Kathryn J.

                                                                  Lovely quiet site even in half term. The lodge is very well equipped and feels warm and homely. The views were amazing and it added to the sense of calm and tranquility that we felt.

                                                                  We ate out in the vaults restaurant and the food was good, we could take the dog in but only as far as the bar, which was fine.

                                                                  The beach opposite was a very steep walk down and up but well worth a visit. We also loved Kingsand and Cawsand, very quiet and quaint. We walked from Downderry along the beach to Seaton, lovely walk and very dog friendly.

                                                                  Looe is also worth a visit but the main beach isn't dog friendly, it's worth taking a drive up to,the top by Looe Island as dogs are welcome there.

                                                                  The only criticism I would have is that if you stay for less than a week you have to pay for the pool, we didn't use it but our 2 teenagers did.

                                                                  A great holiday .

                                                                  Owner's Response:

                                                                  So glad that you enjoyed your stay at Lodge 15 and many thanks for the kind comments.

                                                                  Sadly the lodge owners are charged by the week for the guest pool passes which makes it expensive for us for very short stays, hence we ask guests to pay direct for odd useage on short stays. If we include it in the rental then those not using the pool would have to pay, which seemed less fair! Hope this makes sense.

                                                                  The best logde

                                                                  Angelika H.

                                                                  Das war die schönste Ferienunterkunft, die wir je hatten. Das Haus ist sehr hell und freundlich.

                                                                  Unsere Kinder (13,12) hatten jeder ein eigenes Zimmer und unsere Schlafzimmer ein eigenes Bad.

                                                                  Die Küche ist mit Spülmaschine, Herd, Mirkrowelle und vielen Kleingkeiten so toll ausgestattet, dass wir nie zum Essen gehen wollten. Einkaufsmöglichkeiten gab es im Umkreis von 10 km genügend.

                                                                  Die Besitzerin kümmerte sich umgehend um nicht funktionierende Sachen.

                                                                  Wäre es nicht so weit zu fahren, würden wir auf jeden Fall wieder kommen.

                                                                  Owner's Response:

                                                                  ENGLISH TRANSLATION:That was the best holiday we've ever had. The house is very bright and friendly. Our children (13,12) each had their own room and our bedroom a private bathroom. The kitchen is beautifully appointed with dishwasher, stove, and many Mirkrowelle Kleingkeiten that we never wanted to go out to dinner. Shopping there were plenty in the radius of 10 km. The owner took care of immediately to non-working stuff. Would not it be to drive so far, we would definitely come again.

                                                                  Thank you so much for the lovely review. So nice to get.

                                                                  Terrific holidy let!

                                                                  Gill C.

                                                                  The Lodge is brilliant - so great to stay somewhere that is furnished as a home with decent fixture and fittings! It's very comfortable with an eclectic, comfortable feel. The kitchen too is very well equipped, right down to a cocktail shaker, and there's a great selection of books for those quiet moments.

                                                                  A five minute stroll brings you to the cliff top, and a good old fashioned, friendly cafe.

                                                                  Paramount to making it a great place stay, was the excellent communication with the owner, who volunteered lots of useful information, so it all went very smoothly.

                                                                  Highly recommended.

                                                                  Make sure if you're arriving after hours, to you bring your own food and drink, there's no immediate shop.

                                                                  Cawsand holiday log cabin on the Rame Peninsula, Cornwall. Lodge 15 is situated on the wild and beautiful Rame Peninsula. Known as the Forgotten Cornwall, it's untamed beaches and countryside set it apart from the better known areas of Cornwall. No queues, no crowds and with some of the best sandy beaches in England. A climb down the winding cliff path and you are on the sand; to walk the dog, build a sandcastle or surf the fantastic sea. Just off the coast is a submerged boat used for diving excursions. Magical rockpools offer up untold treasures to small nets. Surrounded by National Trust land and situated on a designated ancient monument, the Lodge has amazing views across the hills and over to Plymouth Sound. Watch the sun come up over the hills and stream into the living room and sip a chilled glass of wine on the sundeck as it sets. We are perfectly placed to explore. Visit The Eden Project, Plymouth by car or short ferry (great fun), the lovely fishing port of Looe and the nearby villages of Kingsand/Cawsand, with their twisting turning lanes clinging to the bay. A real sense of community exists here, and it's lively in summer with people sitting out around the very decent pubs, some of which have really good food. Historic houses abound including nearby Port Eliot, the Grade 1 listed mansion, owned by the 10th Earl of St Germans which came into the family's hands in 1565. The stunning Tamar Valley is close to hand and the famous moors of Dartmoor and Bodmin are well worth a visit to watch the wild ponies and extraordinary scenery. The site itself boasts very beautiful grounds and has weekly tours of the historic monument. It has a swimming pool and sauna on site and a bar/restaurant and small shop providing basic needs and newspapers. The reception desk is open daily and can help with local knowledge. The site is very secure and is reached through coded electric gates.
