Sleeps 6 - 2 bedrooms on the first floor and 1 bedroom on the ground floor (+ infant: Travel Cot, mattress and bottom sheet provided - please bring any other associated bedding you require).

Visit beautiful spring and summer gardens. See sheep or cows grazing, abundant wildlife: listen to the variety of visiting birds - Kingfishers have been spotted on the river near the lodge garden, goldfinches nest in the honeysuckle by the gate and nuthatches nest in nearby trees. Stunning land and seascapes, quaint seaside villages, superb sunsets and unpolluted night sky. Cosy pubs/restaurants in Winter.

Short breaks, variable changeovers and out of season reductions, for complete weeks, for 2/3 persons, (excl. school holidays, and any offers). PLEASE SEE RATES AND AVAILABILITY BELOW.

The self catering property is set in a tranquil valley on the edge of the River Inny in a select, gated, managed development, with Tintagel & Boscastle nearby. The garden adjoins the River Inny. The lodge is close to the North Cornwall coast, situated on the edge of Bodmin/Davidstow Moor. Come to enjoy the peaceful setting, listening to the river flowing by. Enjoy wonderfully relaxing evenings with a glass of wine; see some beautiful night skies away from city light pollution. There are 2 double bedrooms on the first floor, (1 with a double bed and TV, the other with 2 single beds). There is another bedroom on the ground floor with a double bed, and a very comfortable open plan kitchen/dining/lounge area. A welcome tray is provided. The lodge will be decorated for Christmas guests.

All radiators have their own thermostatic, timed controls. The lounge area has a gas stove (wood burner effect).

There are heated towel rails in the bathrooms. Together with excellent insulation, this makes the lodge an ideal property to visit during the colder months. It looks extremely pretty when everywhere is frosted over and just as lovely when covered in snow.

Ideally located for both North and South coasts of Cornwall.

Fabulous Holiday Home

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous holiday staying at Waterside Lodge in October. The property is very well furnished, well maintained and very comfortable. Although there was four of us (two adults & two children), the lodge would have been equally as comfortable if there was six of us.

The owners were very easy to deal with and communication was good. The property is easy to find and well located for us to explore Cornwall for the first time.

We would highly recommend this holiday home.

Looking forward to returning

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 6 have just returned from a weeks stay and are already looking forward to returning. The lodge is lovely, very clean and well equipped. The beds are very comfortable with good quality bedding. The wet room is great after a long day at the beach with little ones and powerful for the adults. The lodge is very well located and easy to find. The owners were very good at communicating and the lodge has lots of local attraction information and maps for you to get some inspiration. This was our first family trip to Cornwall and we feel in love with not only the county but also the lodge itself.

Cosy, modern, immaculate. We loved it!

  • 5 of 5

If you want a cosy, but modern lodge in a beautiful location, you will love this!

The owners were very friendly from the start. They decorated the lodge for Christmas and left mince pies and wine, which was a very kind gesture.

The lodge is cosy, but spacious enough to have 6 people without too much of a squeeze. It has all you need to have a home from home for a short break. It was also immaculate, which makes it feel so much nicer, as many rental properties in pretty locations are not well maintained. The bathrooms are particularly nice.

It really is worth the money, but I would suggest taking a few board games as 6 people playing chess gets complicated ;)

We will go back for sure.

Many thanks to the owners for a memorable Christmas.

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for your kind review. We are pleased you had an enjoyable stay. We do try hard to make Christmas memorable and take into account the age and make-up of our guests. Virtually all our guests comment very favourably on the presentation and cleanliness of the lodge. This is due mainly to the efforts of Vicki, the lady who looks after our lodge in our absence, and we are very grateful to her. We certainly agree with the comment about chess. As far as we are concerned, chess for two people is as complicated as it gets!! We do apologise for not mentioning that, in addition to the chess set, which is on view, there are several other games for all ages in the chest on the landing. However, we take the point that there could be another game or two for playing by several adults. We will remedy this for next season. Thank you for the suggestion.

Wonderful days in Cornwall

  • 5 of 5

Wir haben eine Woche Urlaub in diesem tollen Haus verbracht. Alles, was wir brauchten, war vor Ort. Zur Begrüßung gab es sogar Scones mit clotted cream und jam und frische Milch. Das Haus ist sehr sauber und sehr gut ausgestattet. Das Haus hat den größten Garten in der Anlage und dieser ist von außen kaum einsehbar. Wirklich klasse. Wir hatten unheimlich viel Spaß hier. Auch unsere Söhne (5 und 9) hatten viel Spaß. Es sind auch Spielsachen für draußen für die Kinder vorhanden. Rundum empfehlenswert!

Owner's Response: We are delighted that you enjoyed your stay and, in particular, that your children were able to make use of the toys we provide. We do our very best to provide exactly the accommodation that we would personally enjoy. It is a holiday home for ourselves, our children and grandchildren too. We are extremely lucky to have the personal services of our housekeeper, Vicki, who makes sure that everything is as it should be.

Beautiful !!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

One not to miss!!!!!

I have no faults at all to say,

Beautiful pubs near by, stunning place to stay and close to everything you want for a holiday. I am not one to go to the same places every year, but I will to riverside lodge.

The bathrooms where clean, the rooms where clean everything was perfect.

I have told every one about the lodge and would recommend it to every one. My favourite place would have to be padstow, lovely places to eat especially for the fish and chips!!!!!!

One not to miss!

  • 5 of 5

One not to miss!

Had a fantastic long weekend, made all the better by a sunny end to October.

On arrival there were scones and fresh cream for us as a welcome treat, I was not expecting that but it was a lovely touch. The lodge was immaculate and full of character.

The ground floor bedroom and walk in shower was perfect as my brother Kevin is in a wheelchair. It’s nice that the lodge caters for everybody.

There’s loads to do and see around port Isaac and if you like surfing don’t forget to visit polzeath.

We would rate six stars if we could but will have to settle for five.

We all had a fantastic time and will definitely be back. Oh yes I nearly forgot, try the fish and chips from peckish in Camelford. There simply the best.

Thanks very much the Kilner brothers.
