  • "We had a fantastic week in Costentyn and would recommend to anyone."

    It was a real home from home with everything we needed and most important to us it was very clean. The classical music playing as we arrived at the property was a lovely touch and set the tone for a very calming holiday. The scones, jam and cream were appreciated and gave us a boost after a day walking the coastal path. The location is idyllic and we loved watching the local wildlife (birds of prey, bats and bunnies to name a few) from the hot tub at the end of the day. Thank you Kirsty for a wonderful holiday.

  • "We had an incredible stay at Kristie and John’s cabin in Cornwall Saint Breward."

    The location is perfect, with plenty of nearby activities, and the hot tub added a luxurious touch to our experience. Kristie and John were exceptionally helpful and kind hosts, going above and beyond to ensure our stay was enjoyable. We genuinely loved every moment and can't wait to go back again. Highly recommended!

  • "Costentyn Lodge was beautiful, and we really enjoyed our stay."

    The lodge had everything we needed for our time there. Very clean, we enjoyed the special little touches when we arrived, a homemade cornish cream tea. The scones and jam was lovely. Treats for our dog too. Enclosed decking area, so great if you have a dog. The quarry was beautiful to walk around, the top quarry seating area was great, so peaceful, beautiful views all around. Bottom quarry had a great seating area too. Great for swimming if you want too. Kirsty and John are lovely, they made sure we knew they were they if we needed anything, very friendly. I have already recommended Tor down quarry to a number of my friends. Keep doing what your doing Kirsty and John, it great.

  • "Had a lovely weeks stay at the quarry."

    Kirsty and her family were very kind and helpful but also respectful of your privacy. The views from the lodge are beautiful and having the bbq and bench to enjoy the outside space was fab. We swam in both the lakes such a great addition to have that we could use. They have done a great job with the place. It was a great base for exploring the north part of Cornwal and we would definitely return.

  • "Really nice property and location, perfectly placed for seaside days out and great to have the fishing and swimming lakes on hand as well as the hot tub."

    We enjoyed the Camel Trail with the start located just 1 mile away down the hill. Lots of lovely areas to explore like Tintagel, Port Isaac and Padstow within reasonable reach by car. We had to cut our break short but will definitely be looking to re-book when we can.

  • "Really lovely cabin with amazing views and really well equipped and very clean."

    Beautiful surroundings and wild swimming is a must in the quarry pools! Bit disappointed that the hot tub wasn't hot on the first night, understand cleaning is essential and if we'd have known it wouldn't be available until the following day it would have helped. Would also be good to advise guests that you only get one towel each so that you can bring your own for the hot tub if you want. The signal for the tv is pretty glitchy but it's worth the sacrifice for the stunning location. The cream tea and milk was a lovely touch and overall we were really pleased with the cabin and would love to return in the future.

    Very Welcome and attentive hosts. Homely touches in the property e.g. cream tea with fresh baked scones on arrival, a radio and a bluetooth speaker. Beautiful views and nature walk. Enjoyed the camel trail cycling which is just on the 'door step'. It will feel better for the environment, to having a separate food waste bin or even a composite on site for food waste. Which can later be used to nourish the Beautiful trees and plants around the site.

    This was a great base for exploring both North and South Cornwall - and the local amenities of St Breward are just a short walk away. The Lodge benefited from a newly installed Private Hot Tub & Decking which was excellent and proved a great addition for early mornings and evenings. The lodge was spacious and well decorated; WiFi was a little slow but can't be helped in the remote location - (The Hot Tub made up for it). Kirsty provided a warm and friendly welcome and was on hand to answer any questions, the Scones, Jam & Cream were a lovely added touch, thankyou for a great week!.

    Kirsty and John are really lovely, and nothing is too much trouble for them. On this visit we didn't need them, but on our previous visit we had car issues and they helped us with that. The cabin is beautiful, the beds are comfy, and there is everything you need. We love wandering the quarry land, though we haven't been brave yet and swam in the quarry. The hot tub is great. Its just a lovely place to holiday. Beautiful scenery, loads of great walks, close to some lovely places, we visited all the favourites Padstow, Rock, Port Isaac, Trebarwith Strand etc. And totally recommend the local pub - always busy with locals, a great atmosphere and great food.

There was some delicious welcome scones and local jam to partake of. (I think I found the local provider of said jam and bought some more to take home. Plenty of roadside eggs to buy in village with honesty boxes.) Hosts were helpful and friendly. I will happily return to stay at the quarry again.

    Lovely friendly welcome from Kirsty and John and felt we could ask if we needed anything. Fantastic touches with dog bowl, poo bags and treats as well as Milk, yummy scones, jam and cream! A unique location which added to our experience. It wouldn’t suit all, but we loved it. It is one of the few places we have been which we would love to go back to. Loved visiting lots of beaches and exploring. We found The cabin very dog friendly and were pleased that the dogs were able to stretch their legs just outside the cabin not always on leads, which always makes life a little easier! Kirsty and John are developing the site which it would have been nice to know before hand, but the quality of the cabins and thicknesss of the windows meant very little noise and also the worker on site we found was very considerate. It’s such a lovely location- we are not surprising they are adding another cabin! We took dressing gowns to walk to and from the hot tub, which I would highly recommend on chilly days/ evenings! Also a torch is required when wandering to the hot tub at night.

    The location of the cottage is beautiful, and great for people looking to get away from hustle and bustle.The cottage is quaint but has a modern upkeep within that means you're not missing out on your home comforts. WiFi was reliable and speedy. Location is only a 20/30 minute drive from countless activities and key places of interest in Cornwall. The more local area is very nice and a great change of pace from living in a town, though there's not a great deal to do. Only issue we encountered was arriving at night made it quite hard to find and the roads are quite small and hilly which made driving around to find it that bit more difficult.

The property

For a family seeking fun and adventure on holiday, a stay at this contemporary and spacious dog-friendly lodge offers it all.

Set within a large quarry, the two private spectacular lakes boast a variety of outdoor pursuits including diving and wild swimming.

Walkers and cyclists are also well catered for as within a mile is the start of the famous Camel Trail taking you through the moors and countryside along a disused railway line all the way to Padstow.

After the thrill and excitement of a day on the moors or enjoying the exhilarating lakes, relax in the private hot tub directly outside the lodge before returning to the lodge, or gather your loved ones for a barbecue.

The lodge is both spacious and comfortable with an open-plan living room, well-equipped kitchen and cosy dining and sitting areas.

When it comes to dining out, within two miles you have two of the finest moorland pubs in Cornwall.

Close by in the village is the award-winning Old Inn, dating back to the 11th century with homely dog-friendly bars and huge roaring log fires in the winter.

A little further is the Blisland Inn famous for providing the finest range of real ale in the County and is a former national CAMRA pub of the year.

With so much to do and see in the immediate area, you could well spend your entire holiday here but you are in a good central location for touring Cornwall if you decide to venture further afield.

A perfect base for an action-packed holiday whatever time of year.

This property can be booked with Tressa and Mellyone Beder Del (Melly) together they sleep 23.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £400.
