Lovely cosy lodge in a superb peaceful location. Well equipped with an attractive seaside theme.

5 of 5
This is our second stay at Ansome Lodge-this time with our adult son who is soon off to Canada. We all agree that it is so peaceful and relaxing,particularly with the woodland setting. It is a great base to explore Cornwall and so cosy to return to at the end of the day. We only stayed for 3 days this time,but managed to visit Kynance Cove (our favourite beach),walked to Lizard Point and back, St.Ives and Carbis Bay. Also went to Godrevy and saw the seal colony on the beach and had drinks in the beach bar at Perranporth. The lodge was as delightful as we had remembered it and we will hopefully return again for future holidays. Thank you Victoria for a lovely stay, Nick,Paula and Joe (Worcester)

Lovely Property in a great location.

5 of 5
We had a lovely few days staying here, the property is in an excellent location, just 5 ish minutes walk from the town and beach but also very quiet. Fantastic views of The Island and Lighthouse and very well equipped. Owner was very helpful and replied quickly to any of our queries. We hope to return and would recommend this property!
