About Vanda Arthur
We are former hoteliers and after 20 years of running our own country house hotel, just 5 miles away, we quickly found that we missed the enjoyment of welcoming guests, helping them make the most of their stay and providing them with great accommodation as a backdrop to a wonderful holiday in our wonderful county. So we decided to welcome guests into our Lodge by the lake in our grounds. We know from experience that a friendly approach, a personal service with attention to detail and a great location are important to our guests. We live in the farmhouse at Polgwedhen, but the house does not overlook the Lodge and the Lodge does not overlook the house. We like to be unobtrusive, but on hand if you need anything, even if it's just a chat! We hope to welcome you to Polgwedhen for a well deserved break, and we hope that you will love Polgwedhen as much as we do.
Why Vanda Arthur chose Truro
Polgwedhen Lodge is ideally located for exploring all of the best that Cornwall has to offer. The North Coast at St Agnes is only 5 miles away, Falmouth on the South Coast is a 10 mile drive and the main A30, which will lead you to anywhere in Cornwall is a mere 5 minute drive. However, once at Polgwedhen, accessed via a 1/2 mile private road and surrounded by 10 acres of gardens, lakeside and pasture, you are truly away from it all and in a private world of your own.
What makes this Cottage unique
Polgwedhen Lodge sits within the grounds of Polgwedhen Farm, utterly secluded in lightly wooded lakeside gardens, with views overlooking the ornamental lake, indeed its feet almost dip into the water! Stylish, comfortable, private and tranquil - a veritable Cornish Hideaway.

Cosy and comfortable
We found the place easily with the clear directions. The cosy, delightful lodge placed in an idyllic setting was quiet and set back from any traffic noise and yet close enough to Truro to be convenient. Vanda was very welcoming and we enjoyed the welcome scones. Ideal location for us to explore the north coast - St Ives, Godrevy and Perranporth during our long weekend break. Plenty of places to eat out but would advise to book ahead.
Amazing, so peaceful and relaxing
The lodge is perfectly situated near a private lake and wooded area. If you want to get away from it all but be close enough to drive to places such as Truro, Falmouth, St Ives, the Eden Project etc then this is it. The lodge has everything you could possibly need. We met the owners who were lovely, they were on hand if you needed anything but otherwise they leave you alone. The lodge is one of a kind, very clean and comfortable, on its own and not overlooked.
We will definitely be returning.

A little bit of paradise
When we arrived we were amazed at how beautiful the lodge and the surroundings were. The lodge is a perfect getaway for two and it's stunning lakeside position would be hard to beat. The owners are warm and friendly, and we didn't want to leave.
Wow, what a find!
If you want a cosy place that's tucked away, peaceful, restful and surrounded by its own grounds, this is just the place! You feel you're remote but are close to Truro and all the right roads to the coast within about 20 mins. The owners are lovely and the accommodation great. It's got everything you need for a relaxing holiday in Cornwall. We were able to take our dog and she loved it too (keep them on a lead 'cos of the geese, ducks and the owners' animals). Highly recommended.
Lovely setting and accomodation
A lovely quiet location and the accomodation was excellant. Perfect for 2.

The North Coast with its wide sandy beaches, dramatic towering cliffs and magnificent scenery is well known for surfing and safe bathing.
