- Ground floor bedroom
One of six tranquil retreats tucked away in a wildly magical woodland setting, Ivy Lodge is perfect for couples and families seeking relaxation and the chance to appreciate life's simple pleasures. Located off the beaten track, it sits in a private family-owned country estate immersed in mellow countryside, a few miles outside of Liskeard. Come to this deeply peaceful destination for dreamy views, walks in 25 acres of ancient woodlands, clean Cornish air, a rich wildlife, dark skies for stargazing and glorious R&R. Ivy Lodge is completely detached and feels nicely private from the other lodge-style holiday homes all owned by the family. You have your own sunny patio with a picnic table for barbecues, sundowners and idle time. It is ideal for children who can meet the resident animals and let off steam in the natural meadow or outdoor play area.
You will find the location well placed for exploring being within easy reach of both Cornish coasts, West Devon, Bodmin Moor and Dartmoor National Park. The three miles of sandy beaches, South West Coast Path, tall cliffs and dramatic scenery at Whitsand Bay is a 30 minute drive. For old world charm head to the fishing village of Polperro. The seaside town of Looe and the exclusive waterfront town of Fowey, with their tempting array of restaurants, pubs, galleries and independent shops, are also within easy reach. Visit the historic port of Charlestown, one of the most recognisable locations in the BBC's Poldark's series. Cotehele, the National Trust Tudor house, garden & estate on the Tamar; Lanhydrock, the National Trust's Victorian country house with gardens and wooded estate; the world famous Eden Project and the Lost Gardens of Heligan are a must for garden lovers. Parents can relax with endless opportunities for children in all weathers. Crealy Adventure Park, Dairyland Farm World, Adrenalin Quarry, Lappa Valley Steam Railway and Blue Reef Aquarium are within easy reach and all highly recommended.
Return home to your single storey, cedar-clad hideaway. Step inside to a light and welcoming open plan living room. A wonderful space for socialising and relaxing with an electric log effect stove, comfortable sofas and a well equipped kitchen. There are two pretty bedrooms, including a double and a twin, both furnished with ample storage, good quality beds and the peaceful location will ensure a restful break. A pristine bathroom completes the picture inside. Ivy Lodge provides comfortable and affordable accommodation with a focus on green living in idyllic seclusion - it is no surprise that it has a lot of repeat guests!
There are five other sleep 4 lodges within the estate that are available to book: Bluebell Lodge, Honeysuckle Lodge, Bramble Lodge, Primrose Lodge and Fern Lodge.
