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.
