The property

Oakwood Lodge nestles in a picturesque leafy glade surrounded by big woodland views. Just six miles from the fabulous resort of Fowey, this contemporary styled holiday homestay sits in the pretty hamlet of Treesmill. For those seeking tranquility within easy reach of the glorious Cornish Riviera coastline attractions, a stay in Oakwood Lodge includes access to 30 acres of beautiful, deciduous woodland with miles of meandering paths and trails, perfect for a peaceful walk or mountain bike ride.

The beaches and fishing villages in St Austell Bay are a short drive away. Polkerris Beach is an attractive arced sandy haven reached within a 10 minute drive, in the shelter of the harbour wall and makes for safe bathing. The quaint coastal village of Charlestown has a dinky quay and is known for the historic Tall Ships. There are spectacular ocean views from the 18 hole golf course over Carlyon Bay and walkers will enjoy exploring the coastal footpath that hugs the cliff tops, with panoramic seascape. The Eden Project, with mammoth bio-domes of global flora and
fauna from around the globe is a must for plant lovers. Fowey showcases the pretty harbour and charismatic cobbled lanes with restaurants, inns, galleries and gift shops. Board the ferry across the estuary, no more than a 10 minute bob, to the unspoilt charms of Polruan. This tiny fishing village is a draw for small boats and has a couple of pubs and a harbour cafe for coffee by the sea.

Beautifully presented, the interior and accommodation at Oakwood Lodge is styled for comfort and relaxation. The open-plan living room boasts a wood burner for extra cosiness and big picture doors to the decked balcony (supervision of younger children required) with views to the glorious woodland beyond - the perfect spot for kicking back with a book or enjoying breakfast, lunch or a bedtime nightcap.
