    It was spotlessly clean, with everything needed to enjoy a self catering break. Gill and Rob are more like friends than hosts, and could not do more to make our stay happy. Would thoroughly recommend this lodge and will be back in June.

  • "Where to start!"

    I am disabled and use a wheelchair permanently, and it is so important for me to have reasonable access to any property. Brambleside is perfect for my needs with ample access to all parts of the Lodge. Easy cooking with combined oven and microwave, and all the accessories that go with self catering. Our hosts Rob and Gill are the best of people, so kind and could not do enough to make our stay a memorable one. All that coupled with the beautiful surroundings will bring us back in October. I would thoroughly recommend this Lodge to any couple, but in particular to wheelchair users who are able to transfer from chair to bed. Pat and Tony Webb.

  • "There's been a great deal written about the comfort and features of Brambleside Lodge, about it being so handy for exploring both the south and north coasts of wonderful Cornwall."

    But it's more than that. It's time to talk about the hosts, Rob and Jill. In pretty much every self-catering place my wife and I have stayed, the owners have been content to hand overe the key (and sometimes not even that) before they vanish without trace during our stay. While Bramleside's owners respected our privacy and left us to enjoy the peace and quiet, they looked after us by, every day, putting out lots of cushions on all of the chairs we used on the terrace during fine days and then collecteing them every evening; something you are used to in good hotels or on ships.. They also have a bar beside their own house in which they were happy to have a drink with us. When my wife mentioned that she had forgotten her shower cap, Jill didn't tell her where she could buy one, she gave one to her. We are going back there next year for a two-week holiday. One reason is that It's a long drive from Surrey. The other reason is that its kind and thoughtful hosts have created what is a home from home.

  • "The best recommentation I can make about Brambleside is that this was a return visit for my wife and I to a stylish and comfortable lodge."

    We returned in May, on the basis of a relaxing stay last November, to find that all the trees and shrubs were now providing a colourful backdrop for our stay. The building's hexagonal shape makes it so different from other places. Less ordinary. Full length windows on three sides include bifold sliding doors opening onto a terrace, where owner Robert put out cushions on the comfy seating in the morning and collected them at night. The sort of service more associated with expensive hotels. He and his wife Jille are welcoming hosts and also generous. Scones, clotted cream and strawberry jam are not the only part of the welcome pack of plentiful supplies of tea, coffee, milk and sugar. There is also Cornish apple juice, shortbread and Cornish cream fudge. We liked the big TV and a player for both DVDs and CDs. It is such a comfortable place for the evenings and one which feels really spacious for a week's stay - or even longer. Waitrose was two or three minutes away, Truro City only two more and the wonderful River Fal estuary very close. It was also handy to drive to the north coast for St Ives, Padstow and Lands End. So, yes, this is a place well worth booking for so many reasons.

  • "This was a lovely little stay that we booked very last minute."

    We were welcomed and guided through the property and given total privacy if we wanted/needed but also welcomed to join them at the bar for an evening.

  • "Welcoming, spacious, in a beautiful county A wonderfully, relaxing week at Brambleside - and in the unlikely month of November."

    The lodge is really spacious and comfortable, the interior stylish with co-ordinated colours in the main living area, plus a luxurious wet room. The fridge contained scones, clotted cream, jam, Cornish shortbread biscuits and delicious bottles of low alcohol fruit drinks; all of them part of the welcome from our hosts. And it was a genuine welcome from the owners, who respected our privacy while also being anxious to help us in any way that would make our stay more comfortable. It’s the difference between just renting out a property and their approach, which was to enjoy the fact that they are part of the hospitality business. It was a home from home. Outside was a terrace with easy chairs, a small fishpond and quite a few birds in the nearby trees. The location of Brambleside was also an attraction for my wife and me. It is peaceful, yet only a few minutes up the hill from Truro and the River Fal. At the same time it was also handy for the main A30 that is the fast link with the rest of Cornwall. So we were able to drive easily to the sheltered fishing villages and gardens of the south coast as well as enjoying the more wild nature of the Atlantic-facing north of Cornwall. Memorable excursions. It was for many reasons the best of four self-catering holidays we have had this year. So much so that we have already booked at Brambleside next May.

    The lodge is exceedingly well equipped and comfortable.

Rob and Jill are excellent hosts, friendly and helpful …. nothing is too much trouble. Their “welcome pack” of the ingredients for a Cornish cream tea, plus shortbread and apple juice, was delicious and thoroughly enjoyed. The lodge is ideally situated just outside Truro, within easy reach of both the north and south coasts. I would thoroughly recommend Brambleside for couples, or for single travellers, like myself, it is perfect.

  • "Brambleside is ideally located for exploring the whole of the SW Cornwall peninsula."

    The lodge, set in it's private 2 acre surroundings of mature gardens and trees, is maintained to a very high standard. The owners provide thoughtful consideration to your comfort and go out of their way to meet any reasonable request. Our trip was planned to surprise our son, wife and 16 month old grandson who we had not seen for almost 7 months due to Covid. Due to the lodges beautiful surroundings we asked if we may invite them to the lodge for an afternoon picnic ideally suited to meeting Covid regulations; our hosts not only obliged but provided additional outdoor seating for our comfort. I can highly recommend the lodge to visitors with reduced mobility and function due to it's flat and accessible surroundings; flush thresholds and internal space providing wheelchair mobility. The spacious wet room with double height shower heads; low level toilet and multiple grab rails would meet the needs of those bringing attendant push or self propelled shower/toileting chairs. From the friendly welcome to the little additions (cream tea, milk, tea, coffee, sugar, selection of non alcoholic juices) you can be assured of being able to relax in comfort enjoying the peace and tranquillity of this property.
