If you want peace
It’s was very nice to stay here... it’s just way too isolated from everything.
You have to drive everywhere. There are no shops or even a little bar nearby.
We had our dog with us which was fabulous that we could take her but again because of the location of the lodge we had to walk her on the narrow road that sometimes got tricky because of the traffic.
Other then that it was ok over all.
Thankyou for taking the time to review Greenaway. Yes it is in a very quiet, peaceful and tucked away part of the Roseland - it’s just over a miles to Portscatho village Where there is a well stocked shop and two lovely pubs and a restaurant. There are loads of walks on the estate itself and whilst the roads around are traditional narrow country lanes - there is easy access to the south west coast path and lovely off road footpaths also.
Cleanliness of lodge
The cleanliness of the lodge was very poor The living room area was very shabby and poor Kitchen okay
We are really disappointed to read this review after such positive feedback this season - June our housekeeper cleans to very high standards and this week was no different. June met you all at the lodge with the welcome pack and no mention was made of any problems. She was also on hand all week to deal with any concerns you might have had and would have been delighted to assist with any issues in order that you had a happy and comfortable holiday. We strongly feel that at less than £30 per night per person this week (to include the stay of your dog, full use of the hot tub pool and all the leisure facilities in Trewince) that Greenaway offers excellent value for money.
A Cornish Delight
This comfortable and spacious lodge is part of the Trewince Esate, on the delightful Roseland Peninsula, that despite its popularity, still manages not to feel too crowded. The lodge offered two of us plenty of room and everything we could want. The estate is very pleasant with a swimming pool, and a wooded area to walk in towards a headland. You can walk to the nearest beach at Towan but need to be fit as there is steep hill to walk back up!! There is a good general shop and excellent butchers in Portscatho a small drive away. Overall we enjoyed just sitting and reading in the lodge, especially on the upstairs balcony with sea views. There is adequate Wi-fi for emails etc. but slow for downloading ‘papers’ - we gather Fibre will arrive in August.
Greenaway Lodge, Trewince - August 2018
The site facilities - swimming pool, recepton services were very good, staff were very friendly and helpful. The lodge itself was disappointing, it smelled musty in all bedrooms and living spaces, there were a lot of cobwebs around the patio area/balcomy, the picnic table on the patio had a large burn mark, there was only one recliner sun chair. The lounge windows were very smeared and the sofas were not very comfortble or well covered. The light in the top hallway didn't work There was no house information booklet.
Overall, I feel that the care and upkeep of the property for letting purposes was half hearted. The property itself was a good size and the washing machine/ dryer was very good.
A Nice house in a beautiful location
The house is located near portscatho. A lovely village with a beach, several restaurants (reservation is required!) and a little supermarket with every day freshly baked bread.
The house itself is simple but spacious and neat. The terrace is very nice.
It would be Nice if there’s a guide from the house, we didn’t know how the shower worked.
A parasol would be Nice For the terrace. The sunbathing bed was broken, it has to be replaced.
A disappointing stay at Greenaway
Greenaway Lodge appears to be uncared for.
The double bed upstairs has seen better days and is very uncomfortable. It is impossible to get a good nights sleep in this bed. On arrival the headboard needed reattaching.
The wall clock had been taken off the wall downstairs and left discarded on the sideboard.
There are chips on the rims of some of the plates. The white plates have numerous grey marks on them and although are clean, are unpleasant to eat off.
On windy days, the lodge is cold as the windows allow drafts through. We ended up stuffing kitchen roll in the window cracks to keep warm.
There are gaps in the grout between the kitchen floor tiles.
The cupboard where the washing machine is was messy and the floor wasn't clean.
I'm afraid it was a disappointing stay and not good value for money. With some TLC and attention to detail, this could be a wonderful place to stay.
We are very sad to hear your stay wasnt as comfortable as expected. We are grateful for your helpful feedback. We have reviewed and addressed all the issues you have raised. We have now replaced the upstairs mattress with a high quality Silent Night mattress. The headboards have all been checked and tightened. The plates and mugs have all been replaced. Kitchen and bathroom items have been renewed. There are 5 new windows being installed in the lodge next week. The grout has been redone, the woodwork sanded and sealed and our cleaning team have done a thorough deep clean.
Portscatho and its neighbouring village of Gerrans are located on the eastern coast of the Roseland Peninsula, Cornwall, overlooking the dramatic Gerrans Bay. A truly peaceful waterside village, Portscatho is a lovely place for a holiday. There are miles of coastal and countryside footpaths to explore, particularly along St Anthony's Head. Portscatho was once a busy fishing harbour, but now it has become a haven for artists due to the striking light which is particularly good in the morning sun. More than anything, Portscatho is a relaxing place. The beaches such as Porthcurnick, Towan and Porthbeor are simply idyllic and these are only minutes from the village. With a superb local butchers shop, 2 great little pubs and a well stocked local store, Portscatho and Gerrans are a lovely place to spend a holiday.
