About the property

Our Lodge is nestled in a wooded valley, surrounded by nature, but close to A30

Millpool Lodge is nestled in a wooded sheltered valley with 3.5 acres of the most stunning and diverse country gardens.

The Lodge is annexe to the Grange it has its own private front entrance with lobby and toilet. A lounge with 50 inch satellite tv, futon coffee and dining table and chairs. One bedroom with double bed, and second bedroom with single bed and we can put up another smaller bed or cot for a second child. A well stocked kitchen with cooker, fridge, micro wave and hob. Another small rear lobby with private entrance. A bathroom with shower and toilet. Outside there is a seated area for eating and bbq.

Outside the Lodge a stone staircase leads down to the fountain and the stream beyond with picnic areas and delightful wooden bridges. The crystal clear stream with bridges and two waterfalls meanders through the garden and on to the orchard and wide open lakeside space. The lake is surrounded by decking and seating for picnics or just for sitting and enjoying the peace and quiet of the lakeside views. Up from the lake there is a pine forest with space for picnics and running and play area for youngsters. And of course plenty of bunny warrens and logs to jump. For the younger children there is a Miss Tiggy Winkles Wooden play house down by the bridge. Ideally positioned so mum and dad can watch play from the sunny terrace area.

Below the forest is a meadow and orchard and lake. There is so much to look at, rabbits in the woods, squirrels in the trees, chaffinch and goldfinch everywhere, and even a visiting heron and wild duck to the stream and lake. You will see so many beautiful plants and shrubs for which Cornwall is so famous. Camelias, Rhododendron, Palms, Ferns and many other sub tropical plants. The lake attracts every kind of bird and is a perfect spot to sit and relax.

To the left of the house is a hot tub and barbeque area. Fully lit with decking and chairs a great area for evening socialising. You simply will not want to leave this wonderful place

Besides the house is a well maintained footpath that leads to Cardinham and Deviock woods, ideal for country walks and biking. There are many footpaths leading from the hamlet up to Cardinham moor.

We are equal distance ( approx 13 miles) from the north coast Polzeath and Rock (great surfing beaches) and Fowey, Par and Looe, where the south facing beaches benefit from sun and sheltered boating havens. All very picturesque and unspoilt. Our favourite is the little Bodenick ferry that takes you across from Fowey to the Looe heritage coast. We are also very close to the Eden Project, Lanhydrock House and Gardens, Bodmin and Wenford Steam Railway and centrally positioned to visit our beautiful county.

About Jenny Cruse

Previous PE Teacher and Watersports coach. Finally retired end of season 2016. I now look after our 3.5 acre garden which I love. Although it is hard work I am loving looking after all the plants and creating new areas of interest. Hubby builds the walls and the new greenhouse and the new pathways. We have lived in Cornwall for over 40 years and worked in our Outdoor Pursuits centre for 20 years, so know good places to visit. We try to suggest the ideal trips for our guests. We also can offer yoga sessions which can be taken in the conservatory, and watersports on our 7.5 Jeanneau which is based in Falmouth. We can take you out for a days boating and exploring the lovely Fal estuary and all the wildlife. Or we can offer waterskiing and wakeboarding as we are qualified coaches.

A beautiful tranquil retreat.

  • 4 of 5

Millpool Lodge provides a wonderfully comfortable and beautiful retreat in a quiet location. . The immaculate annexe is both practical and comfy. The garden displays a wide range of planting,a pond and a cascading stream all of which were amazing even in the winter months. You very quickly switch off and relax here. It's a great place to get refreshed. Access to the A30 is easy making the journeys to the coast and other locations very simple.

a must for the area alone!!

  • 5 of 5

we stayed for a extra long weekend and we are so glad we did! the property is virtually brand new and very comfy & snug, its located in a small village and we had to drive over the moor due to road works, but that just added to the stay, our first day there we sat on the bank of the stream in the garden and cooled our feet off then went for a wonder around the gardens, i am not sure we saw all of it as its just vast! and very well kept. i cannot recommend this place enough to you, its very much a flavor of country life but you have also have an Asda near by!! also its not that far from the beaches either, so if you want to go out and visit or just want to laze in the vast garden, just please yourself as its, of course up to you!, you wont be disappointed either way. Jenny & hubby will be around to give you local info if your unsure of anything, and we found them and their stunning property to be two very nice people. we will go back we hope in the summer time, or failing that autumn but we WILL go back!.

Owner's Response: We are so pleased you enjoyed your stay at the Lodge. Yes we always have plenty to do in the garden, it will keep us busy for ever. Autumn is a particularly lovely time to come, quieter roads and beaches and when the road works on the A30 are completed this spring we are just half a mile from the arterial road. So ideal for seeing our beautiful county. See you again we hope.

Although we are in a very rural location we are just half a mile from the main arteriel A30 so easy access to the main route through Cornwall. Surrounded by lovely countryside and exceptional cycle trains and coastal walks.

The moors are home to varied wildlife and our gardens are visited by heron, deer, squirrels badgers, foxn rabbits and otter to name a few. Nearby woods are home to many rare bird species and hawks,
