Spacious, clean, and well equipped.

5 of 5
Lakeview Lodge is a good size, light and clean. There is plenty to do at the Retallack Resort and it is in a great location for exploring Cornwall. The staff members were helpful and friendly and the communication with the owners was excellent. We had a lovely holiday, thank you.

A wonderful little cottage

5 of 5
The cottage is light, clean and cozy. Bedrooms are a good size with very comfortable beds. Parking has its challenges, but there are two parking areas within a few minutes walk. Will definately be on the shortlist for my next Cornwall break.
