Lodge | 3 bedrooms | sleeps 6
No. 12 is one of a small cluster of exclusive, comfortable and very stylish stone and timber clad lodges. Situated in 40 acres of rolling Cornish countryside on the side of a beautiful wooded valley between the villages of Pillaton and St Mellion and adjacent to the St Mellion International Resort - one of Europe's premier resorts for both golf and leisure. The lodge rental includes two golf and leisure membership passes, which provide free golf on the championship Jack Nicklaus Signature Course and the St Mellion Kernow course. Additional guests receive 20% discount on the Nicklaus and 40% on the Kernow courses. Also included is reduced buggy hire; free use of the sports and leisure facilities including a 25 metre swimming pool, large leisure pool, sauna, steam room, spa pool, gymnasium and tennis courts. Leisure and golf usage can be simultaneous, so two non-golfers can use the leisure facilities while the golfers are out on the course and there is also a spa offering a variety of treatments - charges apply. Reached up a long private drive the lodges are tucked on the side of the hill in landscaped gardens with wonderful views that overlook a canopy of green trees towards the 13th hole of the Nicklaus course. A private buggy path links the lodge directly to the St Mellion buggy path network, providing quick and easy access to the club's wonderful facilities, with the clubhouse only a pleasant 15 minute stroll away. Not only is this a must for keen golfers - but it is also a wonderful relaxing retreat for families and couples at any time of the year, with numerous tourist attractions, beaches and beautiful scenery within easy reach.
