  • "Cottage was very tired looking, and we had no TV for 2 days, and no one on site to contact."

    Reviewed by BeverleyNov 2021

  • "The cabin was lovely and furnished well, great that we could hear the river from the decking."

    Nice little touches with the toiletries and the welcome kit in the kitchen. Some logs would have been great as the shop was shut when we arrived. The only downsides were that we arrived in the dark and the cabin wasn't easy to find as the road signs in the complex weren't lit and it would help if the number on the cabins were lit making it easier to see. Also lighting on the decking by the hottub would be helpful. One of the reasons we picked this place was because there was a pub within walking distance but it was closed all weekend which is when we came, it was a real shame because we were relying on the pub for dinner and seems crazy that it would not open on weekends!

  • "The negatives: The hot tub chlorine levels were too high at 8ppm upon arrival (safe range is 1-3ppm) and the same on day 3, so we couldn't use the hot tub."

    I pack my own testing kit, as the risks around hot tubs are well known. The property had a wood burner and tools but no fuel - we felt that half a bag of wood and some kindling would have been a nice touch at little expense to the owners. That said the property was very warm. We do agree with other reviews that in summer, the lack of any opening windows would be a problem. There was no takeaway available from the Old Mill on-site as "the restaurant takes priority" (there were no tables for the next three days either). Not a major issue but had we known in advance or even known upon arrive, we could have planned differently. There was a blackboard by the site entrance advertising the Old Mill, i.e. advertising an eatery that had no free tables for three days and no takeaway. More useful would have been a sign saying "Sorry, Old Mill fully booked and no takeaway". The positives: These minor issues aside, the property was spacious, comfortable, well equipped, very peaceful and we enjoyed our stay.

  • "The holiday cottage is beautifully positioned in a well maintained site."

    The sound of water is never far away. We loved it. One issue though is there are no windows. All glass openings are doors so it felt awkward leaving them open overnight. There was no pole to open the velux. The old Mill restaurant should be lovely and so easy if you’re staying on site. It’s set on a beautiful pond and is surrounded by trees. Overall though it lacks atmosphere. The food is okay but the service really lets this restaurant down. We would like to return to the site as the local beaches are great and there’s so much to do. Overall we’d recommend a break at Stonerush lakes.

  • "It could have done with bleach down the toilet next to front door as it looked brown in bottom of pan."

    Shower in on sweet had black patches which need removing.

  • "My wife, dog and I stayed for almost 3 weeks for a work away from home lockdown retreat."

    Here's a few things I liked and disliked. The Good: This is generally a nice cozy cabin with well proportioned rooms and nice views. It's based in a quiet location and done to a good standard throughout. The jacuzzi is a really nice touch and you can jump in whenever. The wood burner is unnecessary as good heating and insulation but adds a nice touch especially in winter. There is generally most of what you'll need for a self catering break and feels very homely. The Bad: First off and why I marked it so low for comfort: the tiny double bed. I'm quite tall and my feet would hang uncomfortably off the end. We are both thin but still found the width too narrow as well constantly waking each other up in the night. A king size bed would make all the difference. We brought our dog and I found the nearby walks to be mediocre considering the location as it's mostly nestled amongst farmland. And there is very little lighting throughout the complex so we needed to take the dog out before it gets dark which is around 1630 in December. On the subject of lighting; there was also no outdoor lighting on the decking where you have the jacuzzi. This was quite literally a pain as I found myself accidentally kicking various things in my barefoot whilst getting in and out of the jacuzzi at night. A couple of other small issues we had were the quality of the vacuum cleaner (constantly getting blocked and pushed around dust more than picking it up) and lack of clothes drier (although there was tumble drier). The internet was ok but its a shared connection and calls dropped from time to time. I think many chalets were empty- if the place was busy with more people connected it would not be possible to work from home. Finally, for a complex of this many chalets, they should really have a communal gym/pool. On the subject of Sykes: the staff were generally friendly and helpful and it was a good experience until it wasn't. We had come from London when it was Tier 2 (and legal to travel). During our break London moved to T3 then T4. We asked to extend our stay in Cornwall (T1) but were told as London was now T4 we couldn't-that we would have to leave the accommodation and travel back from Cornwall T1 to London T4. This completely confounded us as it made absolutely no sense whatsoever. Sykes were 100% wrong in this decision but you can't argue with stupidity. We found another holiday company with a little more common sense.

  • "This is the second time we have stayed at Stonerush Valley but this time we had a 2 bedroom lodge as we went with friends."

    The lodges are all finished to a very high standard, very comfortable and home from home. Whilst our lodge was awesome some areas did seem that it was in need of a little TLC i.e. the decking outside had obviously suffered the winter weather and whilst it looked as though someone had tried to power-wash it down, it was very weathered in places. The balcony was made up of wire which were all rusted and very loose and the top boards were a bit wobbly in places, we overlooked a stream which was beautiful but a very steep drop, be careful if you have small children as the wire wouldn't keep them safe. The hot tub was just fabulous, cleaned and checked every day by the on site maintenance, we didn't even hear or see them as the access was by the gate directly into the tub area. We did a coastal walk one day and got a bit muddy so used the washing machine (obviously you need to take your own washing tablets etc) but looked for somewhere to hang our washing as it was a lovely day, understand a washing line would definitely be out of the question, but it would have been great for a foldaway airier, a very small point but we ended up having our clothes hanging over the chairs outside. We sat on the decking overlooking Millers Island at The Old Mill pub/restaurant on site for some drinks a couple of times, which was beautiful and we had a gorgeous meal in the restaurant one evening. We have to thank Annie personally for looking after us, and managing the site, reception and restaurant she was professional, good fun and made us feel really welcome. With the Covid issue this year, Stonerush Valley should be proud that they seem to have it all under control. Definitely another visit is on our list soon.

  • "The lodge is in the most beautiful setting and is very well set out to an excellent standard."

    I just felt it needed some updating. The bedding was not comfortable and in the kitchen it lacked so many basic needs. On the whole we loved our stay at stonerush and would go again

  • "This lodge is in need of a update."

    The sofas are very worn, back cushions are awful and very uncomfortable. Mattress in main bedroom completely sinking in middle needs replacing. Ensuite bathroom cut foot on lino tiles which are all lifting up, disgraceful. Carpets in bedrooms needs replacing, dirty. This is a very basic lodge and we did not find it comfortable at all.

    Thank you for your feedback on these matters. The lodge has now been updated with new carpets and a new double mattress. The leather sofa has been renovated and the cushions replaced to make it more comfortable and the bathroom floor is level and secure. Property Owner

  • "The site, the staff and the food at Stonerush Lakes were all excellent."

    We loved it there and would go again. Our only slight criticism is that when we booked through Sykes, we didn’t get an acknowledgement email without chasing the booking. It would be reassuring to receive such an email when parting with such a large sum of money.

    Thank you for your feedback, great to hear you enjoyed your stay at Stonerush Lakes and we hope to see you again soon. Sykes Cottages send confirmation of booking once the payment has been confirmed. Apologies if there was a delay on this occasion. Property Owner

About the location

LANREATH

Pelynt 2 miles; Looe 5 miles; Polperro 6 miles.

Lanreath is a village in southeast Cornwall, five miles west of Looe. Lanreath is rural in character with a local shop and Post Office as well as a parish church. There are a number of ghost stories associated with Lanreath. The best-known features a ghost in black driving a coach pulled by a headless horse. Nearby Pelynt is home to a parish church, a number of local shops and pubs, especially the Jubilee Inn, which was an original farmhouse dating back to the 16th Century. Looe is Cornwall’s second largest fishing port and hence there is always a lively maritime bustle around the quay area of East Looe, which is connected to the quieter West Looe by a seven arched 19th century bridge over the River Looe. The sandy Looe beach adjoins the pier and is very popular with families because of its safe shallow swimming and vast expanse of sand. Polperro is a little further away and is a historic fishing village nestling at the head of a long valley leading down to the sea. With plenty of areas to visit, Lanreath is a quiet, pleasant place offering easy access to the coast, the moors, National Trust properties and Cornwall's famous gardens.
