5/5 Excellent

Relaxing & pleasant week
The Lodge is a lovely accommodation and ideal for a couple wishing for a quiet base in central Cornwall. It was spotless with all the essentials, including decent wifi. Also in easy driving distance to both coasts with a local shop for essentials with larger shops just a short drive away., including St Austels Brewery :)

The Lodge, Polgooth
We would definitely recommend this property. Opened in April 2018 the owners have created a contemporary space ideal for a self catering holiday in Cornwall. The Lodge is in a quiet location ( we visited early June) and comfortable with all amenities that you would expect. The Lodge is well located for sightseeing on both Cornish coastlines. Host Sue and husband Pete are very knowledgeable about the area and places that may be of interest off the beaten track. Sue and Niall, North West England
