Away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life, this contemporary holiday lodge is situated in its own private grounds, surrounded by glorious open countryside. A perfect romantic getaway for two and equally as appealing for families who want to escape, relax and unwind.
This beautifully situated open-plan lodge is in a designated Area of Outstanding Natural beauty and yet is just ten minute's drive from the A30 and the centre of Cornwall. A great base from which to visit both the north and south coasts for lazy days on the beach and also the moors.
Sunset lodge is on the Saints Way which was the Pilgrim’s path from Padstow to Fowey through the heart of Cornwall. Lanhydrock, Cardinham and the Camel Trail cycle routes are within easy reach as well as the county’s numerous beaches, coastal villages and wonderful tourist attractions.
Whether you enjoy coastal or countryside walks, bird watching, extreme water sports or visiting historical places and gardens, there is something in the area for everyone. And after a busy day, why not enjoy one of the numerous local restaurants serving mouthwatering local produce and local drinks - or enjoy cooking at home.
The lodge has a gas hob and electric oven or there is a charcoal BBQ. Garden furniture has been provided so you can eat alfresco on the raised wooden decking or in the spacious garden looking out over the farm and surrounding fields. There are double doors opening out from the lodge’s dining area onto the decking, again with unspoilt rural views.
The villages of Luxulyan, Lanlivery and Lanivet are all two and a half miles away and the larger towns of Lostwithiel, Bodmin and St. Austell are all within just a twenty minute drive. If your planning on visiting the Eden Project, then that's only ten minutes away by car. The owners recommend you visit them with a car to enable you to see everything that this beautiful county has to offer. The nearest airport is Newquay (thirty minutes drive) and the nearest train station is Lostwithiel or Par (both four miles). There is a train station in Luxulyan which has daily trains to Par and Newquay.
If you enjoy walking and bird watching, there is Breney Common and the Neolithic site of Helman Tor, as well as Luxulyan Valley - all within easy reach of the farm. There is so much to see and do from Sunset Lodge, it makes an ideal holiday location all year round whatever your age or energy level.
