Fabulous Cabin for great holiday
Exactly what it says on the tin. Great layout and good size rooms. Good amenities and location great for exploring the local area. Onsite bar/restaurant reasonably priced.
A fantastic base for North Cornwall!
We had a great stay at this lodge, we were two families of four sharing, and we all felt we had ample space. The bedrooms were generous with plenty of storage space. The lounge space again was a decent size for 8 people and the fact it was all open plan meant we could spread ourselves out in one big room. The lodge itself had everything we needed and more!
The country park itself didn't feel overly busy, and everyone seemed very friendly and helpful. We used the swimming pool a lot, it was nice as it wasnt overly busy (even for half term!), its a decent size with a slide and all included in the price. The entertainment venue was busy but we managed to find a table each night with a little perseverance! You could say the park is looking a little tired here and there but we were more than happy with it as a base, and to be in its peaceful surroundings, our kids loved the forest park and all the ducks!
We had a fab time and would definitely return, plus a big thank you to the owners who were so helpful and quick to respond when we needed to contact them!
A Little Extra Attention to Detail.
My family & I often have a short break during October half term & this trip we decided to visit Cornwall & chose to stay at Park Lodge at Hengar Manor. The lodge was very well equipped with all mod cons & everything to make our stay as comfortable & homely as possible. The lodge was well maintained with good bedding, clean towels & a well stocked kitchen. Clear & easy to follow instructions were provided on how to operate the appliances. Good living area with 2 twin bedrooms & shower room down stairs with 1 double & 1 twin room with a bathroom up stairs. Overall the accommodation was clean & tidy but a little extra attention to detail wouldn't go a miss because in every room there were a number of spiders webs & many of them had a occupant which I had to clear out before my wife & kids could settle in. This would not put any of us off from going again because the lodge was very good as is the location & site facilities.
A well equipped, comfortable property in lovely surroundings with useful amenities
This was a late booking designed to give a fun holiday to 4 children and a break for the adults after the shocking tragedy of my brother and his 4 kids losing their partner / Mum. I wanted somewhere that offered activities for children ranging from 3 to 14 in the event that the weather excluded the beach but that wasn’t like a holiday camp. This was perfect. A comfortable, well equipped lodge, beautiful grounds and a lovely swimming pool. The staff were friendly and helpful. There was entertainment if desired but it was easy to avoid if that isn’t your thing. The restaurant was reasonably priced with a large varied menu and the food was pretty good. The kids loved the pool and feeding the ducks and we had some brilliant days out at nearby Tintagel and Daymer Bay.
Park Lodge - lodge 9
A really pleasant stay. Lodge 9 had everything we needed and was comfortable, we will be staying there again in the future. The park is OK.....needs a good coat of paint and deep clean - pool area the most needs a good scrub, but.....I'm been picky, the lodge and holiday and location was great and recommended. Thank you.
Park Lodge 9 is situated 1/2 a mile from St Tudy a quaint Cornish village, the church around which the village was built was first constructed in the 6th century and then rebuilt in the 11th, 15th and latterly 19th centuries. The village has been built around the original Celtic circular raised graveyard - known locally as "God's Acre!" St Tudy is believed to be the birthplace of Captain Bligh of the "Mutiny on the Bounty" fame! The St Tudy Inn (formerly the Cornish Arms) will welcome you in for a refreshing drink, a hearty meal or both!
Bodmin Moor is a couple of miles away to the East and is dominated by large granite tors which tower over sweeping expanses of moorland. Bodmin Moor has engendered fear and awe throughout history and hence provided inspiration for writers, poets and sculptors. Standing stones, burial chambers, clapper bridges cottages and farms across the moor give a hint of the 4000 years of human development ever since Bronze age farmers first arrived.
Port Isaac is about 6 miles to the North West and this has recently been the base of filming for "Doc Martin" with Martin Clunes, there are a good selection of cafes shops and pubs. Further up the coast there are plenty of golden beaches and coves stretching between Polzeath and Tintagel with some of the best surf in Europe.
Bodmin lies a few miles to South West and has a large selection of supermarkets, shops and restaurants.
Rock is situated on the Camel Estuary opposite the town of Padstow. The estuary is alive in the summer with all manner of boats including windsurfers and water skiers. If you don't fancy venturing out on the water there are fine walks across to Braey Hill and further to St Endoc Church (the last resting place of Sir John Betjemen) where there are stunning views across to Doom Bar and Stepper Point. The mile long sandy beach stretches all the way to Daymer Bay at low tide and as there are no waves in Rock it is ideal for swimming. Rock is reputed to be home to more millionaires than anywhere else in Cornwall and it comes as no surprise that it also boasts a Michelin starred restaurant, the Black Pig. A foot ferry is able to take you across to the incredibly popular Padstow or 'Padstein' as it is nicknamed due to the amount of Rick Stein's food venues on offer. It is here that you can hire a bike and cycle along the Camel Trail if you fancy.
Polzeath is a small seaside resort about 6 miles north of Wadebridge and is known to have one of the best surfing beaches in Cornwall. This long sandy beach combined with Atlantic swells provides ideal conditions with which to improve your surfing skills. The beach is prefect for families, there are lifeguards on duty and the village has a number of restaurants, pubs and cafes to cater for your needs. The coastal path passes through Polzeath to Daymer Bay and Rock in one direction and New Polzeath and Pentire Point in the other. There are miles of beautiful coastline where dolphins can sometimes be spotted and this is a wonderful area for birds such as puffins, kittiwakes and gannets.
