    Everything little thing was thought of and nothing was too much trouble. I still can’t get over the amount of space we had inside and outside. We can’t wait to go back next year for a longer stay and bring our little one! Thank you!

    We'll certainly look forward to meeting your adorable little boy next time! It’d be lovely to have you back again especially for a longer period. Many guests say that a couple of days’ break is never enough time to see and do everything. We’re so pleased to hear you loved the space.

  • "We went for a week to chill out prior to spinal surgery and that’s just what we got."

    The Lodge is really homely, spotlessly clean and very well equipped with quality items. Christina has really thought about the extra little touches, the fresh bread, butter, jam, milk and even a box of Cornish Fairings (biscuits) and a jar of sweets to welcome you after a long journey. When baking during the week Christina even gifted us a couple of tea cakes which were so tasty, The wild garden is a joy and so appropriate for the setting. We even had a deer visit one corner of the garden. The couple are extremely good hosts, there if you need them but never intrusive which was lovely, The area itself is very pretty with nice beaches nearby. A visit to the headland at Godrevy (NT) is a must and a little bit of heaven to be cherished. Most of the touristy places are also very accessible such as St Ives, Falmouth, Penzance etc. All in all we had a wonderful, restful holiday and we can highly recommend. To Christina and Shaun, thank you so much for making us so welcome and we hope to be back soon and to see the buddleia and lilac bushes in all their glory!

    Heather & Andrew, thank you so much for taking the time to write such kind words, it really does mean a lot to us. We’re delighted to read that you managed to chill out and rest as it’s exactly the environment we wanted to create, especially prior to your spinal surgery. We loved that you appreciated the surrounding and the wild garden and, as garden novices we were thankful for your ‘professional’ guidance. So much so we’ve purchased two buddleias already! It was a real pleasure having you both at the Lodge and we consider ourselves fortunate to have such kind and considerate guests visiting. Wishing you well for your operation and a speedy recovery. We hope to see you both once you’re feeling fit and well again. With all good wishes x Property Owner

  • "Absolutely amazing."

    From start to finish, we had the best experience ever, from the initial enquiry with Sykes to the holiday at Lazy Lodge itself. The welcome from Shaun and Christina was the best we've ever had - such lovely hosts. Nothing was too much trouble and they provided a lovely welcome pack (including fresh home baked bread, baked by Shaun - thank you, delicious!). The lodge was well equipped, very comfortable and spotlessly clean, the best we've ever had in the last 20 years of staying in Cornwall. All the little extra touches were appreciated. Whilst the owners live alongside and are available to help as required, they are in no way intrusive. We had a fabulous relaxing time at Lazy Lodge - the setting is amazing surrounded by trees, the lovely pond and wildlife (whilst we were there, we saw a fox with her cubs, ducks on the pond and even spotted the local woodpecker). The location is perfect for exploring both the North and South Cornish coasts with easy access to lots of great places. Looking forward to returning very soon. Thank you both for everything.

    Wow! Thank you so much for this fantastic review! What a compliment from such practised holidaymakers!! It really means a great deal to us, especially that you appreciated the cleanliness, comfort, and privacy. We’re delighted to be able to provide guests the open, yet private space to themselves whilst on holiday. (Shaun was a little envious you’d seen the fox cubs). You certainly packed a lot into your holiday:) and we will look forward to having such a lovely couple back. Many thanks from us both Property Owner

    It's nice and private, great facilities, we have everything we would need with 2 children. The hot tub is a lovely addition and the hosts even brought us home made cake as a treat whilst staying there. The kitchen has everything that you would need and its a lovely peaceful spot. We saw wild birds, a fox an the children loved fishing in the lodge. Thank you both for a lovely experience.

    It was a real pleasure having you at the Lodge.

  • "The Lazy Lodge is the perfect retreat."

    Located just off the Mining Trail and within a short distance of Portreath and Porthowan, this is the perfect spot for anyone looking to take advantage of the breathtaking scenery and costal walks Cornwall is famous for. The Lodge is nestled within a large garden, which gave our two boys ample space to run around. Plus, the pond attracts lots of local wildlife which offers a great source of entertainment whilst relaxing in the wood burning hot tub. Our hosts, Christina and Shaun couldn’t do enough to make our stay as comfortable as possible- they were so accommodating, ensuring the hot tub was ready for us when we got back from a day exploring the local area. Our boys enjoy fishing and there was two local lakes that we visited during our stay- one in Portreath and another in Hayle. We would also recommend a visit to the Bassett Arms in Portreath- the food was amazing!! This has been a truly memorable holiday for our family and would highly recommend The Lazy Lodge to others.

    We are extremely grateful that you took the time out to leave us such a wonderful review. It’s heartening to hear how much you appreciated the lovely location we’re in and the surrounding areas you explored as a family.

Nothing is too much trouble for them and they welcome suggestions for improvement (not that they need them) If/when we return to Cornwall they will be our first port of call. Having used Sykes cottages several times before - lazy lodge is the best by far.

The property

Porthtowan 1.6 mile, Portreath 2 mile.

This wonderful lodge is located in the hamlet of Cambrose, which is tucked between the stunning beaches of Porthtowan and Portreath.

Lazy Lodge, as mentioned in Cornwall Living Magazine provides a relaxing and secluded environment while still being conveniently positioned to take advantage of all that the North Cornwall Coast has to offer.

This lovely lodge, which has two bedrooms and sleeps four people, welcomes couples, families, and friends to unwind in its wood-fired hot tub, huge private garden, off-road parking, and lockable bike storage.

Lazy Lodge is tucked away in an acre of private grounds, surrounded by nature, adjacent streams, and a huge pond; you'll be able to relax on your private patio or stroll through the garden, and perhaps a leisurely game of pre-dinner boules or Garden Quoits will determine who does the cooking?

It's a wonderful location to unwind with a tranquil seat overlooking the pond, read a nice book on the lawn, or stargaze while listening to music in the eco-friendly hot tub.

Inside, there's an open-plan living room with a well-equipped kitchen that contains a gas oven, grill, and hob for cooking at home.

The charming sitting area features a flame effect fire, a wall-mounted Smart TV, a Bluetooth speaker, and a range of traditional board games; it's the perfect spot for hunkering down on those chilly nights.

Freshen up before bed in the family bathroom with a bath, shower over, and heated towel rail for added comfort.

The spacious double room has an en-suite cloakroom, while the cosy twin room is perfect for two little children.

When it's time to go exploring, Lazy Lodge is a great place to start; within 2 miles, you can visit either the award-winning Blue Flag beach of Porthtowan or the popular sands and fishing village of Portreath.

Don't forget your push bikes, because the lovely Coast to Coast Cycle Trail is right outside the gate at Lazy Lodge!

A nine-mile ride south will take you to Deveron, or you can cycle or walk the two-mile traffic-free route from the Lodge to Portreath, where you'll find lots of lunchtime delicacies.

If taking a walk around the golf course is more your cup of tee, there are three courses within 3 miles.

Tehidy Woods is West Cornwall's greatest area of tranquil woodland and lakes, and it's only a short drive away.

Alternatively, go for a beautiful coastal walk to see impressive ruins on heather and gorse-covered cliffs.

You could even recognise some of the filming locations from Poldark!

Take a break from the cooking by taking a mile walk to the Cornwall Gold and Tolgus Mill heritage site, where you can have a traditional Cornish breakfast served on a miner's shovel.

Close by on Porthtowan Beach is the Blue Beach Bar & Restaurant, which is situated on the dunes, or for a true holiday feel, drive along the beach and watch the sun set with Seasmiths wonderful fish and chips.

The surrounding welcoming communities of Portreath and Porthtowan provide a wide range of dining, take-out, and shopping options.

For a change of pace, the Royal Cornwall Museum, Truro's Gothic Cathedral, and the National Trust's scenic Trelissick Garden estate are all within a short drive of the lodge.

To the north, the St. Agnes Heritage Coast offers stunning bays, historic sites, and beautiful beaches, while to the south, Hayle, Carbis Bay, and St Ives are major tourist destinations.

Whatever your holiday plans are, Lazy Lodge will provide you with a quiet and relaxing stay.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £200.

About the location


St Agnes 4 miles; Portreath 4 miles; Truro 9 miles.

Porthtowan is a small village resting on west Cornwall’s beautiful coastline, renowned for its Blue Flag beach, which at low tide exposes almost a mile and a half of fine, golden sands. Fringed by impressive granite cliffs, the beach is a popular surfing venue and is lifeguarded during the summer, making it ideal for families. Porthtowan is part of the St Agnes designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, and there are some wonderful walks to be found, offering vivid scenery along the South West Coast Path, whether you choose to head east to St Agnes or west to Portreath. The towns of St Ives and Penzance, with their art galleries, restaurants and quaint harbours, are half an hour’s drive away, whilst Flambards Theme Park, The Cornish Seal Sanctuary in Gweek, and the Goonhilly Satellite Earth Station are just a few of the other diverse attractions scattered around this picturesque region. A great base for a varied family break.
