About Irena

My husband and I live in France. Although we love France we also adore Cornwall where our son lives and so we purchased our hobbit house so we could take holidays in Cornwall. we have a dog and so the forest location is perfect with the chalet being on a private site it means it is safe for children also with the amenities on site pool/play area great for a family holiday We have also put in the twin bedroom a under the bed bed so that one stores under the other giving room for a travel cot if you have 1 child and a baby.

also we are exploring France in the summer and decided to rent out our french house while we are away it was a great success and so we are doing it again in 2017 check out property fr7806 a real home form home holiday a perfect place for a relaxing family holiday.

Irena purchased this bungalow in 2007

Why Irena chose Cornwall

Only 10 minutes to St Ives and Carbis bay with the amenities they offer. St Ives the Tate, a wealth of lovely restaurants and pubs. Carbis bay a wonderful beach. A short drive away Lands End, The Lizard, Flambards. Too many great beaches to mention. Also Hayle estuary a paradise for bird watchers.

What makes this bungalow unique

Heated swimming pool on site, also kids club and entertainment. Shop and launderette.(summer season only) Set in quiet location on edge of holiday village, forest walks. Safe for kids and dogs.

Notes on accommodation: Great for children and dogs. Parking in parking bay nearby. Bus route on site summer season only. New for 2014 a charge of £25 per dog per week to cover cleaning charges (john fowler charge is £40pw) we have sadly had to do this this year due to the inconsideration of one or two dog owners who visited last year. Outside: On site heated pool and sauna. Laundrette and shop on site. Entertainment and kids club (the acts can be a bit iffy but they are defiantly entertaining! Lol) summer season only. Winter lets, ( nov onwards) no pool or entertainment. but ideal for getting away from it all great for dogs as park is very quite. near to bird watching sites in winter Cleaning / Towels / Linen / Maid service: Included duvets, pillows, blankets. Hair dryer. Please bring your own towels, duvet covers, sheets, pillowcases. Other: Outside picnic bench. on decking

Highly recommend

  • 5 of 5

The bungalow was everything we expected it was clean and well maintained. The location was ideal for visiting Cornwall. Dog friendly beaches nearby at porth kidney sands and a little further away was Perranporth. The journey from lelant to st Ives on the train has fantastic views not to be missed. There are plenty of dog friendly places to eat highly recommended is the Cornish arms in hayle and the badger inn in Lelant. Rena the owner is very helpful and there is lots of information waiting for you in the bungalow. We will defiantly be returning.
