    “We loved the setting of the lodge.”

    Although there a few lodges on the estate they are set a little way apart so there is still quite a bit of privacy, and we were just across the path from the children's play area, which my boys enjoyed, and a small area of woodland where we were able to walk, play and do some den building. On the other side of the lodge were meadows where we were able to see deer grazing every evening. There is a small patio area with a bench so you can eat outside if you like and the owners also have some pigs ...

    Although there a few lodges on the estate they are set a little way apart so there is still quite a bit of privacy, and we were just across the path from the children's play area, which my boys enjoyed, and a small area of woodland where we were able to walk, play and do some den building. On the other side of the lodge were meadows where we were able to see deer grazing every evening. There is a small patio area with a bench so you can eat outside if you like and the owners also have some pigs and goats on site that you are able to visit and feed should you wish. The lodge itself was comfortable enough and mostly well equipped for our family of two adults and two children. It is well located for inland walks and activities near Liskeard as well as being only a short (around 20 mins) drive to the coast. There were a couple of minor niggles and things to be aware of. The track down to the lodges is quite rough and the parking is at the top of a pathway with stairs down to the lodge rather than directly outside should you need to consider this when booking. It would have been helpful if the undergrowth around the pathway had been trimmed back a little more as it was a bit difficult to get suitcases and things through. Though the lodge itself was mostly clean, we found we had to re-wash the majority of the cutlery and crockery before using; I think perhaps there is a reliance on the previous guests to make sure these things are clean rather them being washed between visitors. Also, only the minimum crockery needed is provided ie. 4 plates, 4 bowls etc. This makes it difficult when wanting to use plates to serve the food rather than just putting it straight onto plates. No extras are provided beyond an initial toilet roll and kitchen roll so make sure you take your own foil, cling film or anything else you may need. You are also unable to get supermarket deliveries to the property - although the track to the lodges is too rough for the delivery vehicles it is a shame you are not allowed to get them delivered to the top of the drive as you can with takeaways. So be aware that you may like to book a click and collect slot in advance should you wish to have groceries whilst at the lodge. Although a laundry room is advertised, we were told a couple of days before we arrived that it is remaining closed for the moment so you may like to consider this in what you need to bring with you as well. The final thing that we wish we had known is that there is no Wi-Fi at all and also no real signal for using mobile data so make sure you have planned everything you need to in advance as you are unlikely to be able to use the internet whilst there. Having said this, these were mostly fairly minor issues and we did enjoy our stay. The owners were friendly and the lodge peaceful and well located.

The property

Primrose Lodge is one of just a few tranquil retreats tucked away in a wildly magical woodland setting.

It is perfect for singles, couples and families seeking relaxation and the chance to appreciate life's simple pleasures.

Located off the beaten track, it sits in a private family-owned country estate immersed in mellow countryside, a few miles outside of Liskeard.

Come to this deeply peaceful destination for dreamy views, walks in 25 acres of ancient woodlands, clean Cornish air, a rich wildlife, dark skies for stargazing and glorious R&R.

Primrose Lodge is a completely detached single storey, cedar-clad hideaway and feels nicely private from the other lodge-style holiday homes all owned by the family.

Step inside to a light and welcoming open plan living and dining room.

A wonderful space for socialising and relaxing with comfortable sofas and a well equipped kitchen.

There are two pretty bedrooms, for a maximum of 4 people including infants, a double and a twin, both furnished with ample storage, good quality beds and the peaceful location will ensure a restful break.

A clean and tidy bathroom completes the picture inside.

You have your own sunny patio with a picnic table for barbecues, sundowners and idle time.

It is ideal for well behaved dogs and children can meet the resident animals and let off steam in the natural meadow or outdoor play area.

Primrose Lodge provides comfortable and affordable accommodation with a focus on green living in idyllic seclusion - it is no surprise that it has a lot of repeat guests!

You will find the location well placed for exploring being within easy reach of both Cornish coasts, West Devon, Bodmin Moor and Dartmoor National Park.

The three miles of sandy beaches, South West Coast Path, tall cliffs and dramatic scenery at Whitsand Bay is a 30 minute drive.

For old world charm head to the fishing village of Polperro.

The seaside town of Looe and the exclusive waterfront town of Fowey, with their tempting array of restaurants, pubs, galleries and independent shops, are also within easy reach.

Visit the historic port of Charlestown, one of the most recognisable locations in the BBC's Poldark's series.

Cotehele, the National Trust Tudor house, garden & estate on the Tamar; Lanhydrock, the National Trust's Victorian country house with gardens and wooded estate; the world famous Eden Project and the Lost Gardens of Heligan are a must for garden lovers.

Parents can relax with endless opportunities for children in all weathers.

Crealy Adventure Park, Dairyland Farm World, Adrenalin Quarry, Lappa Valley Steam Railway and Blue Reef Aquarium are within easy reach and all highly recommended.
