Fantastic holidays in Cornwall
Everything was perfect for us in the beautiful cottage 'The Forge'. It was clean, comfortable and our lovely hosts were very helpful!
Great family winter break
This is a delightful cottage with enough kitchen utensils to make a full meal. Lovely log fire to sit by of an evening after enjoying the fab games room. There is pool, futsball and table tennis which was so much fun after a day of sight seeing and before dinner. My boys were very happy that Netflix’s is installed in the TV! Highly recommend for a family with older children (mine are 8 & 11) and lots to do exploring the fields around the cottage and further a field. Would definitely come back.
We enjoyed our week very much and we will certainly be returning. Dolly had left us a beautiful cake and fresh flowers.
Beautiful place to stay
Having just returned from a wonderful stay at the forge I would like to say that the owners hospitality and kindness was second to none and the surprise of a beautiful cake on arrival was a pleasant surprise, the accommodation is fantastic for families , although a little of the beaten tract , if you want peace and quiet and views every day then the forge is highly recommended , a car is a must as you can travel to places of interest in 35 mins and to retire in the evening in a quiet comfortable Cornish retreat . My family loved our stays d would recommend it to everyone. Thank you Dolly .
A Perfect Stay
The Forge at Trevadlock is the perfect getaway. Tastefully decorated, comfortable and well equipped. An extremely peaceful setting surrounded by gorgeous scenery. Dolly and David are wonderful hosts.
Well located to explore both North and South Cornish coasts as well as Bodmin Moor and Dartmoor. Alternatively there are moorland walks directly from the property.
We cannot imagine a better holiday cottage.
Beautiful setting for peace and tranquility
We were delighted with the property, we arrived early and were allowed to enter early, there was a local large Tesco in Launceston which was really convenient for the weekly shopping.
Everything that you need to ensure your stay was comfortable was available, although we felt that some the the fixtures were a little 'tired' with a new fridge with shelves in the door would be useful. We noted the freezer was available for us in the cupboard. We understand that the owners are updating the properties and really didn't feel uncomfortable in any way in the property. The bed was so lovely and comfortable and the bathroom had everything we needed.
We had a little furry friend and she (Fergie) was really happy with the space she was allowed to run and stretch her legs. The orchard was lovely to wander around often, in the late night, star spotting with the lovely clear skies over Bodmin. We took the opportunity to walk over the lane to the river and enjoy the space at the bottom fields of the property, walking back over the fields to the cottages, ensuring we followed the country code, keeping our dog on her lead.
We would love to return, and enjoy the north coast and central Cornwall areas again as well as popping over the border to Dartmoor.
Thank you for such a lovely stay and such wonderful properties.
Trevadlock Manor is in an extremely convenient location, very easily reached by car, only a few minutes south of the A30, just west of Launceston, just 45 minutes from the M5 at Exeter. The scenery is quite breathtaking and you will be absorbed as soon as you have left the main road into the beauty of this edge of moorland location. A really central location in Cornwall, you have so much to see within easy reach. The brilliant beaches at Trebarwith Strand, Crackington Haven and Widemouth Bay are just over 30 minutes drive to the north and the quintessential Cornish harbour town of Looe is 40 minutes to the south. The wilds of Bodmin Moor are on your doorstep and Dartmoor is around 45 minutes away should you wish to cross the border.
The beautiful historic market town of Launceston lies just across the border from Devon and was once the capital of Cornwall. With rolling countryside, castle ruins and plenty of shops and nearby attractions, it's a fantastic base for exploring North Cornwall. Launceston was the ancient capital of Cornwall and has been a market town since the time of the Normans. It still possesses a medieval south gate and castle ruins. Due to its position just a mile west of the River Tamar, it borders Devon and is often referred to as the 'gateway to Cornwall'. The church of St Mary Magdelene is well worth a visit for its unusual granite carvings and a ghoul is said to haunt the churchyard. There are many strange tales around this area of Cornwall. Apparently south of Launceston at Hingston Down there is buried treasure, the ghost of Dorothy Dingley has been seen many times in Botathon, and in nearby Yeolmbridge the Wild Hunt may be seen by those crossing the bridge. But those who see this twice will not live to tell the tale!
Bodmin Moor, bisected by the newly expanded A30 is home to one of Cornwall's Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Reaching a height of 1,377 feet above sea level at Brown Willy, Cornwall's highest point, the heather covered granite moorland provides East Cornwall with the most stunning country views and rugged walks. Near Blisland you will find two of Cornwall's stone circles, the Trippet Stones and Stripple Stone Henge just round the corner, one end of the famous Camel Trail. The 18 mile Camel Trail follows the route of the old railway along traffic free paths, providing a fairly flat cycle through Bodmin and Wadebridge out to Padstow, eminently suitable for families. The National Lobster Hatchery at Padstow neighbours Rick Stein's empire on the North Coast. The Bodmin and Wenford Railway, the first steam operated railway in Cornwall, takes in 13 miles of countryside. Also just outside Bodmin is the Camel Valley Vineyard who have been winning awards for their home grown wine for the past 20 years. The National Trust have three properties nearby: Cothele, Lanhydrock House, Trerice and Carnewas and Bedruthan Steps. Slightly further afield is the Eden Project in St Austell. Morwhellham Quay is also a fascinating place to visit, a "living" museum providing a wonderful day out.
