Lodge in Cornwall: Nestled in the most unique and enchanting setting, Tresahor Lodge is like something out of a fairy-tale. Hidden away in an old quarry near the Helford Passage, this Unique hideaway can only be described as something a little bit special.
Let's start with the lodge itself, charming and comfortable with all of your holiday needs catered for. Steps lead up to the open plan living-room, complete with a comfy sitting-area for cosying up in front of the TV on a cool autumnal eve, a dining-area with seating for four and a well-equipped kitchen, including a gas cooker, fridge, freezer, kettle and toaster - all you could need to rustle up a scrumptious meal. A small hallway leads off the living area towards the back of the lodge to the shower-room and two bedrooms - one with small single beds, TV and DVD player, the other with a double bed and en suite cloakroom. In turn, double doors at the front lead out onto the deck - the ideal spot for your morning coffee whilst taking in the peace and quiet.
Outside, the remarkable surroundings are steeped in history - this former granite quarry was last used in 1906 (it is said that the site gained a reputation for having some of the best granite in the area and is even rumoured that it provided supplies for the second build of the London Bridge) - the current owner who has lived on site for 30 years, undertook the most terrific task of turning the area into the unique spot that it is today.
The lake is the star of the show (20 foot deep). There are pedalos for you to enjoy during your stay (please note that life jackets must be worn during your time on the water and children must be supervised at all times. Unfortunately you cannot swim in the lake.) There's also a 'beach' complete with striped deckchairs and the opportunity to try your hand at fishing. Enjoy warm summer days, book in hand, as you sit back and relax in your own private, hidden haven.
Another truly unique feature is the impressive barbecue hut. Transporting you to the 'Lord of The Rings' film set, step inside your little 'hobbit house' and be welcomed by the cosiest interiors. You will enjoy cooking in here no matter the time of year. You can choose to dine inside the hut, your lodge or al fresco. The outdoor table overlooks the lovely lake. This table was cleverly handcrafted from an old mill stone. There is so much character within your surroundings.
Out and About
If you can bear to tear yourselves away, there is so much to see and do nearby. The pretty local village of Constantine may be small in size but it's certainly not in character - there is a convenience store, general store (with an off-licence offering more than 100 different whiskies, an abundance of gin and more!), mobile post office (opening times may vary) and craft gallery with local Information Centre.
There are many wonderful walks around the spectacular scenery and estuaries of the gorgeous Helford River (be sure to explore the pretty circular walk at Bosahan Woods, filled with bluebells in season, and the scenic walk to Scott's Quay on the edge of the river), and the craggy coves and magnificent sites of the Lizard peninsula are also with easy reach.
If you fancy dining out, there are some great eateries in the surrounding villages. For starters, the renowned Trengilly Wartha pub serves delicious food and is just a ten-minute drive away, as is the popular cafe at Potager Garden. If it's a takeaway you're after, you will find a pizza van in Constantine on a Saturday evening and a fish and chip van in the nearby village of Gweek on a Wednesday evening (there is also a good pub and a post office here). If you venture a little further into the maritime town of Falmouth (complete with some brilliant beaches) or up to the Cathedral City of Truro, you will be spoilt for choice.
Open plan living-room with kitchen and dining areas. Coal effect electric fire, TV and DVD player. Gas cooker, microwave, fridge, freezer, kettle and toaster. Bedroom 1 with double bed (4'6'') and en suite Cloakroom with WC and wash-basin. Bedroom 2 with twin beds (2'3'' recommended for children only), TV and DVD player. Shower-room with shower, WC and wash-basin. Outside: Laundry-room/Outhouse with washing machine and tumble dryer.
Please note, children under 2 years of age are not accepted as there is unfortunately no room for a cot at the lodge. The driveway is steep and unmade in places. Please take care around the lake - children must be supervised at all times, life jackets must be worn when using the pedalos and swimming is strictly not permitted. Wood for the BBQ hut is to be supplied by the owner - there are two free nets in the hut to start and thereafter it can be purchased from the owner (there is an honesty-box in the log store).
