  • "Enjoyed our stay."

    The lodge was clean, comfortable and spacious. The views were great and found it to be a relaxing experience. The indoor jacuzzi was a bonus with the weather we had during our stay. Tracey gave us all the information we needed and also checked if everything was ok during our stay.

    Thank you for your wonderful feedback David, I am so glad to hear that you had a peaceful and relaxing stay with us at 12 Meadow Retreat and enjoyed using the indoor jacuzzi. I hope you will be back to see us again, once the rain stops!! Sally, Guest Services, Charteroak Property Owner

    It has everything you need in the lodge. Would have booked for longer time. Will definitely come back next time. Also, the staff Tracy reached out to us via email and was very accommodating, and making sure all is well. Thank you so much!

    I am absolutely delighted to read your lovely feedback and hear how much you enjoyed your stay with us at 12 Meadow Retreat! I hope you will be back to see us again in the very near future. Sally, Guest Services, Charteroak Property Owner

  • "Overall good but a few minor issues."

    A few areas regarding cleanliness. Also some areas need attention. (Loose flooring in lounge and gym, punchbag floor hook loose but not required by us.)

    Thank you so much for leaving us your thoughts after your stay at 12 Meadow Retreat, Emlyn. I am sad that you found a few issues, especially with the cleanliness of the lodge, for which I apologise most sincerely. I have passed your comments to our housekeeping manager, so that she can make sure this does not reoccur. I hope that you still managed to enjoy your break and that you will consider coming back to stay with us again in the future. Sally, Guest Services, Charteroak Property Owner

  • "Absolutely amazing property with every small detail thought about."

    Beautiful view of the pond from the decking area. Only set back was work was being done on our path which wasn’t finished until day 3 but apart from that it was perfect

    Thank you so much for leaving us your wonderful feedback Katie, I am really happy to hear that you have had a lovely stay at 12 Meadow Retreat. I am so very sorry that it was not as relaxing as I would have hoped, due to the disturbance caused by the contractors during your visit. Unfortunately we had works arranged to install EV chargers, which I'm afraid we neglected to inform you of. Please accept my apologies on behalf of the team. I hope you will return to stay with us again despite these issues. Sally, Guest Services, Charteroak Property Owner

  • "Me and my partner recently stayed at 12 meadow retreat this past bank holiday weekend."

    This was our second time staying in the lodge. We always enjoy our stay, we’re able to relax completely and take advantage of the facilities! Especially the sauna and bath tub. My only complaints would be the water pressure in the shower is quite low and the bin the bathroom had still not been replaced (from what I’ve seen from the most recent review from previous renter). But overall is a lovely, romantic getaway and we would highly recommend to others.

    I am delighted to hear you enjoyed a peaceful and relaxing break at 12 Meadow Retreat, Sophie-Anne and loved using the sauna and jacuzzi bath! Thank you for letting us know the issues with your water pressure and the bin, I have passed these on to the relevant teams to resolve. Many thanks also for giving us your recommendation, we really do appreciate it. I hope you will be back to visit us for a third time in the very near future.

  • "Stunning property, clean, nicely decorated."

    Some of the crockery could be updated as some had chips in them, but otherwise it contained all required for a comfortable stay. The property was easy to find and was on a relatively small site. The site map was slightly misleading as it indicated there was an area of woodland you could walk in however this seemed to be under construction/demolition during our stay which we did not know about prior to our stay, which meant we had to go off site to do anything and there were no paths to safely go offsite so you had to drive into the town. But the grounds themselves seem well kept.

    Thank you so much for leaving us your feedback Bobbie, we really do appreciate you giving us your time. I am happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay at 12 Meadow Retreat and loved the lodge. Our site map does show the area of land you are speaking about , as it is earmarked for future development, however we do have to keep it fenced off at present due to safety reasons. I hope you managed to find the several lovely woodland walks very close to our resort. Sally, Guest Services, Charteroak Property Owner

  • "Absolutely loved the property, really nice and well kept."

    There were a few issues raised by previous guests such as the exercise bike not working properly and their being no side table in the living room which I would have thought should have been fixed but haven’t. This is disappointing as they really should be sorted having been already mentioned. Also the bathroom bin is broken and needs fixing. These are small issues but do impact the otherwise really nice high quality of the lodge. The bed is really comfortable and the cinema room is fantastic. We had a brilliant time and will definitely be back!

    Thank you so much for your lovely feedback Emily, I really appreciate the time you took to leave us your thoughts. I am delighted to hear you loved your stay at 12 Meadow Retreat and enjoyed using the cinema room. My apologies for the issues with the exercise bike, unfortunately I was not previously aware of the problem, but I have now passed your comments to our maintenance team to rectify. As new owners, we are currently in the process of refurbishing some of our lodges, but unfortunately this does take a little time. I'm sure that if a side table is required in the sitting room, this will be added, along with a new bathroom bin. I'm sorry this did not happen before your arrival. I look forward to welcoming you back to stay with us again very soon. Sally, Guest Services, Charteroak Property Owner

  • "My husband and I booked a last minute break down to Cornwall, we stayed at 12 Meadow Retreat in Dobwalls, the facilities were amazing, our own sauna, double jacuzzi bath and our own little gym, it definitely lived up to its standards."

    We had the park almost all to ourselves and what a beautiful park it is. The staff made sure to keep in touch, we had a call before we arrived to say they were looking forward to us staying with them and a call while we were staying with them to make sure everything was fine and there were no issues and there wasn't. I would highly recommend this park, we had an amazing stay and will most definitely be visiting again in the future.

    Thank you so much for leaving us such amazing feedback. I am so happy that you had such a wonderful time here with us at 12 Meadow Retreat and that you are planning a return visit very soon. Sally Guest Services, Charteroak Property Owner

  • "On the whole very clean and tidy and a nice place to stay."

    The cutlery/crockery is a little sparse, with a full size dishwasher you need to use almost everything to fill it including pans. The cinema room TV was not connected to the internet so although Prime and Netflix were offered you could only use them in the main living area. Generally good quality equipment and nice facilities.

    Thank you so much for your feedback Pete, we appreciate your comments so much. I'm glad you enjoyed your time at 12 Meadow Retreat and had a lovely break, however I am very sorry to hear that you were unable to connect Prime or Netflix in the cinema room, as this was obviously very disappointing for you. I have passed on your comments to our maintenance team to rectify the problem. I have also noted your comments about the lack of cutlery and crockery and informed the housekeeping team of this.

  • "We thoroughly enjoyed our stay."

    The Lodge was immaculate and very well equipped. The only thing that we both missed was a couple of small tables at either end of the sofa for putting drinks on. Apart from that we couldn't fault it. We would definitely stay again.

    Other then that it was perfect. I will most likely be back again next year.

  • "I chose to stay at iGym lodge (no 12) so I could use the fitness equipment during my stay but found that the exercise bike seat was too low at its max height."

    I’m 5ft 5ins tall and was unable to use it unless using it standing up which I tried once but it was very creaky and clearly needed some maintenance. There were also no batteries in the remote for the TV in the gym

  • "We were on a two week holiday and an extra set of towels and bedding would of been useful we had to wash towels and they hadn’t dried by the next day luckily we had brought some of our own to use."

    Some of the lighting on the site was not working the ones by the roadside near our lodge and opposite were not working at night so was very dark if you were to arrive back late and had forgotten to put your lodge outside lights on. These are just minor issues but equally important but we would definitely return again Thank you
