Make a holiday cottage in Dobwalls your home away from home

Dobwalls is a quaint village in Southeast Cornwall, a mere three miles from Liskeard, and centrally located between Plymouth, Devon and Bodmin. Tucked away into the Cornish countryside, Dobwalls makes for a wonderful quiet escape that offers plenty of serene landscapes and fairly easy access to the sea.

HomeAway holiday cottages in Dobwalls are an ideal way to enjoy all the attractions of the area. These lovely properties range from being rustic to sleekly modern on the outside, yet all are comfortably furnished with up-to-date interiors. Units in the area typically sleep from two to six people making them ideal for either a couple looking for some private time, or a jolly family holiday. There are pet friendly units available, and many have gardens, onsite parking and beautiful views. Save money by staying in a holiday cottage in Dobwalls while enjoying activities in nearby Liskeard and Cawsand.

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

An inviting Dobwalls holiday cottage waits for you just 256 miles from London. Take the M4 and M5 West for a pleasant four-hour journey by car. 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. If a more rural retreat is sought, Dartmoor is an excellent choice and HomeAway offers holiday homes in Haytor Vale, North Bovey and Moretonhampstead to name but a few.

Lovely Cornwall in comfortable cottage

5 of 5
The cottage is comfortable and well equipped and perfectly suited for a family holiday with dogs. Liz is very welcoming but leaves you alone to do your own thing. St Teath is perfectly located for reaching places such as Padstow, Rock, the Eden Project, Camel Trail and Tintagel. Would definitely book again - thank you Liz!

Just perfect!

5 of 5
Myself, my partner and our 4 year old daughter have just returned from a week in Cornwall, staying in Portmellon at Seatons Rest. The apartment was perfect for us, perfect location as well as being tastefully decorated with all the mod cons. We were able to walk into Mevagissey for lunch/dinner and there is a small bay just at the end of the road so we would wander down each morning and evening to admire the view. The location is great to explore further afield in Cornwall too. I can't rate this place highly enough, it's been renovated to a very high standard. Can't wait to return in the near future. So glad we chose this apartment.
