"Location better than most"
This privately booked accommodation was just right. Eight of us, two extended families, shared the property and it worked very well. The resort location is great for the North coast of Cornwall, such … More
Many thanks for reviewing us and so pleased you had a great time. Look forward to welcoming you back! Caroline

"11, Oakridge - Holiday Heaven!"
We have just spent the most wonderful week in one of the lodges at Oakridge. The lodges are 'upside down' with the bedrooms downstairs and the open plan lounge and kitchen upstairs. There is… More
We are delighted that you had a great stay and loved the lodge and surrounding area and very much look forward to welcoming you back. Over the coming months we will attend to minor repairs, decorating etc as it is difficult to keep on top of everything during the busy summer season. Thanks again for choosing to stay with us and taking the time to write a review. Caroline

"Not Really a 6 person lodge"
4 Adults & 2 teenagers stayed in a 3 bedroom, 6 person lodge.
The lodge was well equipped and in a good location - we had 2 main gripes though. Firstly the interior was a little tired and the upsta… More
Thanks you for taking time to write a review. You stayed in one of the lodges that it is not featured on this site, but I have pointed out the issues to the owners and will check it out myself. Unfortunately, the bedrooms in the 3 bed lodges are quite small but the living area is spacious and accommodates six people easily. That said, I am glad that you had a good time in Cornwall. Caroline

Lovely accommodation, had everything you could want. Don't bother trying to find the Carpenters Arms in Mertherell, as when we finally found it, they told us that they were closing in 4 days (end… More
Many thanks for taking the time to submit a review - much appreciated and glad that you enjoyed your stay. I will remove reference to the Carpenters Arms from my literature - it used to be great! Caroline

"Great lodge in lovely setting"
A really well equipped lodge in beautiful woodland...The ideal place to relax with the treasures of Cornwall on your doorstep! If the weather's not great (it was pretty chilly during our stay) the leisure passes for the excellent St Mellion Hotel are invaluable (with 3 pools, sauna, steam room & gym - we were ALL more than happy!). My Husband and I are both golfers and the hotel also has 2 golf courses on site (will definitely be back to play!). Caroline was a great point of contact in answering our queries and ensuring our stay was the best it could possibly be.

"Cottage with an extraodinary view in exceptional location"
I spent here 2 weeks with my familly during Christmas and New Year. I can confidently say that this cottage exceeded my expectations and I was pleased very every aspect of it from small details to views and location... From the balcony, all you can hear are birds siging and a water stream in the forest down the valley.
This cottage is charming and in excellent condition. It is located in a wonderful, quiet and semi-wild environment yet easily accessible. Golf fields are within walking distance. The cottage is situated close to many sightseeing attractions.
The cottage offers an exceptional view on forests, hills and valleys. The rooms are all en-suite and the kitchen is very well equiped.
It is adjacent to a golf and hotel complex. The stay offers free access to the hotel swimming pools, saunas and jacuzzi. Golf membership can be booked from the owners directly. This offers very good value and entertainment.
I definetly recommend this to families for a stay as long as two weeks or more...
Delighted to read that you enjoyed your stay and we hope that you visit us again soon. Regards. Caroline

"Fantastic family break in an amazing lodge set in beautiful surroundings, could not have asked for more."
We booked the lodge at Oakridge to celebrate the New Year with my family of five (2 adults and 3 children) and another family (2 adults and an infant).
On arrival we were all thrilled with the lodge, exactly as we had imagined it would be, set in beautiful surroundings. The owners had decorated the outside with fairy lights and inside was a real Christmas tree, the children loved these thoughtful touches and it all added to the magic of our stay!
The lodge is made up of two twin bedrooms, each with an en suite shower, wash basin and WC, and one double room with a family bathroom including a bath.
Staying as two separate families we really appreciated the privacy of these en suites and in my opinion they are a good size.
We were delighted to discover the well equipped kitchen with ample crockery, cutlery etc. We cooked daily for 8 with ease in this kitchen, you really do not need to bring anything & the dishwasher was a lifesaver, as was the washing machine, a real luxury!!
There was a stair gate & highchair available too which gave peace of mind during our stay.
The Lodge is very cosy and heats up quickly without the real fire, but this was lovely to have in the evening. We were not at all cold & stayed during December.
Overall we could not have wished for better accommodation or a better location. We had a fantastic break here and could not recommend highly enough, we will definitely be back soon!
Thank you so much for taking the time to feed back to us. Much appreciated and we look forward to welcoming you back. Caroline

"Tastefully decorated, well furnished, great location."
No. 11 Oakridge
We stayed at No. 11 Oakridge in early September 2012 and loved it! The first floor (where the living room/kitchen/dinning area are) is tastefully decorated, with modern colours and a high quality finish. The living area is very comfortable and the kitchen well equipped. The view from the balcony is stunning!
The bedrooms are all ensuite and whilst a little on the small side, they are still comfortable. The downstairs is more traditionally decorated than the first floor, but still of a high quality. The beds were very comfortable, which is always important.
I dealt with Caroline when making my booking, who was very helpful, and the whole process was quick and efficient.
Things worth noting:
- Keys need to be picked up at the St Mellion Hotel Reception which is about 5-7 minutes drive from the lodges
- There is a free guest pass to use the gym/pool facilities at the St Mellion Health Club which is a bonus
- The internet connection was fairly slow most of the time
Overall, we had a great week and will be returning for another stay some time in the future.
Thanks you for taking the time to submit a review. We are pleased that you enjoyed your stay and look forward to welcoming you back. Regards. Caroline

"No 16 Oakridge, St Mellion. Peaceful Location but.............."
Our party stayed at this lodge for 1 week. In our party were 4 adults and 2 children aged 12 & 2.
We found our lodge tucked away along a private drive at the southwest corner edge of the St … More
We welcome feedback as we take great pride in the quality of our lodges. It is disappointing that the issues regarding cleaning and the blocked shower drain were not brought to our attention at the time as we would have attended to them immediately. Windows are in fact cleaned inside weekly and outside monthly, but for some reason were not cleaned between lets on this occasion - this will not happen again and we have reminded our cleaners of the importance of maintaining high quality standards at all times.
Lodges are maintained to high standards. This year we bought new beds and mattresses, new leather sofas, linens etc etc. Carpets are scheduled for replacement this Autumn/Winter.
Approximately 65% or more of our customers have stayed more than once and we have a great deal of very positive feedback. We need to encourage more of our guests to put their feedback on Trip Advisor.........
