Lots of extras inc robes & slippers.Enjoy
Whitsand Bay Lodge park is set back from the cliff with a road in-between the cliffs & a 'gated' park entrance. Even though this is a self catering lodge ,various food packages are available to make your arrival & stay easier; cream tea, hearty English breakfast, celebration packages and more...please inquire. The lodge is built to full UK residential standards for all year round occupancy; it is not your standard " pine clad interior" lodge, it is a house,fully insulated ,centrally heated and double glazed throughout.. The layout comprises of three bedrooms: one king size bed with en suite; complete with w.c., bidet, shower and bath. One double bedroom and a separate twin room with two single beds. A second w.c. and shower room are incorporated in a small work-out/relaxation room. This incorporates an infra red sauna with mood lighting and internal CD player/radio and a luxury shower /steam cabinet, exercise bike and other exercise equipment. There is a large fully equipped kitchen, breakfast bar and separate dining table. Lounge area has bright and airy window views plus two 'floor to ceiling' corner windows.
The lodge is privately owned and is the only lodge on the park that has an infra red sauna, steam cabinet, Jacuzzi, outdoor sofa, floor to ceiling windows in lounge, patio door in bedroom, work out room, coffee/espresso station, separate utility area with sink and washer/dryer; children's outdoor water play table and indoor activities table and a box of toys along with numerous added extras for your enjoyment and holiday comfort. Fresh bed linen, and complimentary use of towels,and toiletries are included and placed in your lodge along with a welcome 'tea/coffee' package. Use of a free cot can be provided. Other park lodges do not include any of the above mentioned items; some have towels but a hire charge is levied for them and cots etc also carry a hire charge.
Aside from its fabulous location and scenery, the park facilities include heated indoor swimming pool, fitness room, small children's play area, outdoor pitch and put area , shop, launderette, bar, internet cafe, restaurant, solarium room, mobile massage therapist and manned reception office. It is suitable for a family holiday, quiet retreat or a romantic break.
This lodge is situated near to HMS RALEIGH(10mins away), approx 3.5 miles away. It is perfectly located for attending "Passing Out" Parades, and one or two night stays are offered for this occasion. HMS RALEIGH is in Cornwall not Plymouth. Therefore, any advertised “ideal for HMS RALEIGH accommodation" that is in Plymouth, and appears closer in mileage to HMS RALEIGH, would mean you actually need to take into account the Torpoint Ferry queues and the river crossing time from Plymouth into Cornwall. This can add an extra hour onto journey times in the peak of summer, whereas Lodge 47 is only 10 mins away from HMS RALEIGH and a welcome break for your son/daughter following their parade.
There is also a direct bus service from Whitsand Bay Holiday Park into Plymouth, which stops directly outside HMS RALEIGH. The added benefit of staying at Lodge 47 is that it also sleeps 6 people and the cost of your accommodation could be split between various members of your party and you also have your own privacy, fantastic accommodation, amenities, location and a "get away from it all" break too! Especially if your son/daughter is going straight onto their next training establishment 2 days after their Passing Out Parade. You will at least have the opportunity of spending time together whilst still being able to do their washing and cook for them too!
It has to be better than staying in a B&B or hotel room. Email us with your requests, dates and what we can leave in the lodge to make your short stay easier for you. There are various packages available including celebration balloons etc.

The West Country region
With its southwesterly position, Cornwall is lucky to experience regular temperatures higher than the rest of mainland Britain. In addition, Cornwall is surrounded on three sides by the sea and the weather can often vary from the north to the south coast.
On exploration of Cornwall, you will come across many unusual and distinctively Cornish place names that allude to its native language. Look out for towns and villages named after saints, such as St Agnes, St Austell and St Ives that refer to the early Celtic Christian missionaries who first brought Christianity to Cornwall. Some other common prefixes, which feature in place names across the county, are:
Tre (v) - house, farm or village
Chy - dwelling
Ros (e) - heath or moor
Bod, Bos, Boj - dwelling
Lan - church or monastery
Pen - headland
Pol - pool or pond
Cornwall's pasty and cream tea reputation is still thriving and now due to the enthusiasm of some celebrity chefs, Cornwall is now well and truly on the international foodie-map. The food scene has ballooned here since Rick Stein first broadcast rumour of the finer fresh and local ingredients produced here and Jamie Oliver opened another of his famous restaurants named 'Fifteen' at Watergate Bay, here in Cornwall in the summer of 2006.
Sourcing food locally has become a nationwide trend to nurture the environment, and Cornwall has the highest concentration of organic and traditional food producers in Britain. The best pubs and restaurants advertise their links with local farmers and fishermen. What is local here in Cornwall is often the very best in the country.
Nearby Plymouth is a large University City, with a fantastic theatre (Theatre Royal) and is positioned on the estuary of the Plym and Tamar. It has a real living and visible history of British Naval involvement.
The dockyards here predominately support Royal Naval vessels and there is always a ship in town!
You can enjoy any one of a number of dockyard tours via boat from the Barbican or Hoe area or you could book directly with the dockyard for a free personal 2-hour trip on coach and foot, stating if you would like to go onboard either a submarine or a ship.
Plymouth has a new modern pedestrian shopping centre and the older buildings near the docks are being restored with apartments, art galleries and cafes, making this area very cosmopolitan with an array of outside eating areas to choose from.
You could visit the shops and restaurants at the Barbican, the Pilgrim Fathers left here for the New World in the Mayflower, or why not pop around the corner for a look at the famous statue of Sir Francis Drake on Plymouth Hoe, which overlooks Plymouth Sound and Drakes Island.
Smeaton’s Tower (red and white striped lighthouse) shares the Hoe site, its base is the old Eddystone Lighthouse, which was rebuilt in 1881.
There are bridge and ferry crossings into Cornwall from Plymouth over the Tamar Bridge, the Brunel railway bridge or the Torpoint ferry, which carries foot or car passengers and takes approximately 7 minutes.
Whitsand Bay is part of the Rame Peninsular and is located at the beginning of the footstep from Devon into Cornwall. It pretty much remains unknown to the hordes of tourists who flock to Cornwall every year for their holiday break and boasts some of the most spectacular sandy beaches around our coastline.
It is a popular surf spot and Whitsand Bay Golf Club is nearby.
Even though Whitsand Bay is in Cornwall , it is only 7 miles from Plymouth city centre, with a direct bus service that stops outside the Lodge Park .Therefore, it is centrally located which allows you to venture further and deeper into Cornwall or pop back into Devon to explore the coast line and nearby towns and villages therein.
The Rame Peninsula is an area of outstanding natural beauty with secluded and far-reaching sandy beaches, magnificent scenery, spectacular walks plus great surfing to be had.
The Southwest Coastal Path starts at Cremyll and winds its way through the 800-acre Mount Edgcumbe Park, which is probably one of the most beautiful estates in England today.
A number of villages are situated in Rame, they include Millbrook, Kingsand, Cawsand, St Johns, Crafthole and Whitsand Bay is situated at the centre of them all. It is located at the head of an amazing cliff top area, giving close access to sandy beaches, coastal walks, villages, and buses and driving routes directly into Cornwall.

"Great Lodge - Great Location"
Lodge was of a very high standard, all rooms very tidy.
Communication between lodge owner and site owner was a little 'tricky' - we had an issue with the main bathroom where we could not get into the room due to a faulty lock on the door.
The owner was on holiday, the site would not look without lodge owner approval.
Eventaully this was sorted out - we did feel somewhat in the middle.
Overall - lovely lodge - and we had a lovely holiday.
Misplaced the original email with directios and lock code; as the owner was on holiday - I was not getting any reply to my phone / email - fortunatley I found a backup of the email whilst on the way to the lodge.

"Beautiful view, comfortable lodge, disappointing site facilities"
Fantastic location, had the most beautiful beach I've ever seen in this country. Steep descent down to the beach, brace yourself for the return trip back up! Lodge was really nice, comfortable and well catered for, had a spectacular view from the veranda. The site was really disappointing, it was like a park of two halves. On one side you have many beautiful lodges with stunning views and hot tubs but then the top half with all the facilities was run down, dirty and in need of a complete renovation. The bar area was really tatty, although the bar staff were very pleasant. The young staff in the shop are really miserable and was very poorly stocked, you need to venture out for any proper shopping. If you want a lovely base to explore the area then this is great, if you're after onsite entertainment and things for the children you will be disappointed. It's a shame but we had a great stay.
Thank you very much for the kind comments regarding our holiday home.It is a shame that the site facilities let you, and us as owners, down and thank you for your honesty with regards to them.We will pass them onto the park owner with the hope that he will take action.

"Does exactly what it says on the tin!"
Myself and the family have just returned from lodge 47 situated at the Whitsand bay holiday park following a week's stay, i cannot comment on the park itself as we didn't really use the facilities although it was clean and the staff friendly and the indoor pool looked great
Lodge 47 was exactly as the description on this web page, it was a real home from home, with everything you could possibly need for your stay, the steam room, sauna and hot tub were fantastic and were used during our stay with no problems at all, plenty of quality outdoor furniture to sit and watch the world go by, the views across Plymouth Hoe and the general countryside were stunning to say the least, the wifi was part of the cost so no hidden extras there perfect if your taking the laptop to see where your visiting each day
We used the lodge as a base to travel the Cornwall and Devon area but knowing we were going back to this accommodation made the holiday perfect, we have stayed at various lodges on holiday in the past but i would definitely both return to this lodge and recommend to family and friends without a second thought
Many thanks Debbie & Damon
Thank you very much for taking the time to write this review without being requested to do so. It is pleasing to know that the lodge met your expectations and that you all enjoyed the amazing surrounding area. We just need to try and arrange great weather for guests too.....I wish!!
We would like to offer you a 10% discount on any future stays at our lodge.
