Cabin in Cornwall: Our hand-crafted rustic haven with breath-taking views of the mesmerising Tamar Valley. Thimble Lodge provides the most peaceful retreat to nature.
Escape the everyday with a retreat to this enchanting hideaway. Thimble Lodge is the perfect place to slow down and be at one with nature. Are you looking for a hideaway where you can simply switch off and re-charge your batteries, but where you can also look forward to adventure filled days with your beloved pooch in tow? Thimble lodge is a cosy, snug and charming space designed for a romantic break away for two.
Positioned in its own private grounds and striking the perfect balance between earthy and country chic vibes, this Unique hideaway is just idyllic for those who are a little wild-at-heart. The Lodge is truly bespoke as it has been lovingly handcrafted by the owners. The structure itself is impressive with the beautifully exposed wood and inside there is plenty of space for you to hunker down with your lovely four-legged friend. There's a log burner for you to enjoy during the cooler months. Is there any better feeling than returning from a cool winters walk, lighting the fire, hot chocolate in hand and snuggling down to a classic film? There are two comfortable chairs for you to sit back and relax in as well as the sumptuous double bed. One of our favourite features about the lodge is the stable door. Make yourself a morning cuppa and maybe treat your loved one to breakfast in bed. Open the stable door and let the fresh air flow through as you take in the peaceful vistas that surround your humble abode.
Your kitchenette and bathroom are separate to the main lodge. To access this cabin, you walk around the covered veranda. Step down into the kitchenette which is perfectly equipped to prepare a tasty breakfast or light evening meal. There is a kettle, toaster, fridge, microwave and plug-in double hob, but please note there is no oven. You might like to book ahead at local restaurants for a delicious evening meal. You will also find the separate WC and shower tucked into the back of this lodge that will be warm even during the winter months, thanks to the heated towel rail. The setup at Thimble lodge is quirky and convenient, making it the perfect Unique hideaway.
There are several outdoor areas for you to sit back and watch the world go by during your stay. From the beautiful veranda with rattan furniture to the detached pergola at the bottom of your private garden. There are sun-loungers down here, just perfect for relaxing as you soak in the last of the summertime sunshine. Pour yourself a G and T and light up the barbecue and embrace cooking in nature. In the evening, the lodge looks even more inviting. With twinkling outdoor lights and the warming glow of the log burner, you'll find you never want to leave this little slice of paradise.
The lodge only has one neighbour, but please note you have plenty of your own private space and your privacy will always be respected.
Out and About
Ideally located for exploring both Cornwall and Devon you will never struggle to plan a day out. Perhaps a visit to the Eden Project, with its fascinating biomes, or The Lost Gardens of Heligan where you can spend the day wandering the estate. Cotehele, the National Trust manor house, gardens and quay, is not far away and should be on your 'to do' list. The beautiful Cornish coast is only a short drive away where you can enjoy coastal walks and seaside villages, or perhaps a visit to Dartmoor to see the rugged landscape and ponies. Whilst in the area, a planned day out must be a visit to Tavistock which is a traditional market town with a weekly market and a collection of high street and independent boutique shops; an ideal way to spend a few hours on a Saturday afternoon.
