Things to do

-Family attractions: Carnglaze Caverns and the Rum Store is an education and entertainment venue consisting of three man-made caverns in Loveny Valley. Just 12 miles out from Liskeard, the first cavern is named the Rum Store due to its storage history with the Royal Navy. The venue hosts concerts and there is a woodwalk and enchanted dell with bronze fairies and other sculptures, as well as three acres of flowering bluebells (when visited at the right time!). Another great family attraction in the region is Porfell Wildlife Park, which has Cornwall’s largest collection of exotic animals. Just eight miles out of Liskeard in Looe, you can see exotic birds, zebra and everything in between. There is also a children’s zoo, woodland walk and Maasai village.

-Outdoor activities: Tranquil Dobwalls is a haven for walkers, but there are also plenty of high-octane thrills in the area. Adrenalin Quarry offers a zipline over a flooded quarry that takes visitors flying at 40 mph, and a giant swing that takes riders up 50 feet from the ground, then 150 feet over the water at an 80-degree angle. There is also an 800-metre carting track as well as a Segway adventure experience near holiday cottages in Dobwalls.

-Watersports: Dobwalls is less than 15 miles from the Cornish coast, allowing visitors to enjoy both the countryside and the sea. A short drive from famous spots including Whitsand Bay, Looe, and Polperro, surfing is the sport of choice in this region. Stand-up paddleboarding, swimming, boating, and a variety of other activities are also available on the coast.

-Food and drink: Cornish cuisine is undoubtedly one of Cornwall’s main tourist draws. The villages surrounding Dobwalls holiday cottages are full of local pubs serving up homemade Cornish favourites, including the always popular Cornish pasty. In addition to the pasty, Cornwall is home to a fine selection of dairy products.

Weather in Dobwalls

Like the rest of Cornwall, Dobwalls enjoys a relatively warm, oceanic temperate climate. It sees a lot of precipitation, so travellers are advised to dress appropriately. July and August are tied as the warmest months with an average daily temperature of 19°C. January and February are the coldest months, when the temperatures dip down to 3°C.

Travel to Dobwalls

From the north, the village is only 170 miles from Cardiff. Those that prefer to fly will find air service to and from nearby Exeter Airport. Just 63 miles to the east, coming from the airport via the A30 takes travellers past Dartmoor National Park.

The location was stunning, right on the river, amazing views. The cottage itself was perfect, large kitchen dinner, coy sitting room and bedroom and great shower. Towels and bedding provided, didn't have to do anything. Thanks

It was very peaceful and private, with a superb view of the surrounding countryside, and the pretty country style garden , visited each day by an abundance of birds, making use of the bird feeders situated there. The interior was equally delightful, beautifully furnished, and with everthing to hand that you could possibly need.Very comfortable accommodation, good quality bedding and furnishings, and tasteful decor. Also enjoyed the hot tub, which we would have have made more use of if the weather had been more conducive. Everything was absolutely spotless and maintained to a very high level. The owners were very friendly but gave us our own space, whilst being avaiable if needed. On arrival we found fresh scones, jam & cream awaiting us in the cottage, which went down very well with a cup of tea, and was very much appreciated. We were also presented with a large bundle of runner beans from the owners garden, which we enjoyed immensely. All in all a superb holiday home. Hope to visit again. Would thoroughly reccommend to anyone.

It is equipped to a very high standard, spotlessly clean, easy to relax in and has a lovely little garden overlooking fields and the valley. Chris and Jags are wonderful hosts, we were provide with a super welcome hamper, the best we have ever had, luxury chocolates and they were always on hand with tips on where to visit. We hope to visit again and would definitely recommend to family and friends.
