  • "As previous renters have stated the sound bar in the cinema room would not connect with the TV."

    The controllers on the gaming machine were sticking making some of the game playing frustrating. The dartboard could do with replacing as it's starting to flake over the floor. Having said this it's really a great place to stay and the kids loved every minute of it

  • "Great place and location, freely nice lodge and facilities, although needs a little attention in places - scuffs and marks on various walls."

    Cinema room great however the sound bar was not/ would not connect to the TV. Dart board needs replacing as it was cheap as were the dart, pretty much every dart bounced out of the board which made it really difficult to have a game. The games machine has a sticky joystick when made playing some games a little challenging. However taking at this into account I would recommend 18 Meadow Retreat as a place to stay, overall it has great facilities and space for four.

  • "We loved our stay at 18 Meadow Retreat and would recommend this every time when asked by our friends."

    It has everything a holiday needs including a pool table and even a Cinema - loved it. I would just recommend the owners change the dining table chairs and fit shaver/tooth brush power sockets in the bathrooms (just a small point). John - London

    Cinema room was superb, broadband speed was up to anything you could throw at it, pool table and retro games great fun. Would definitely return. Stayed with my Wife and 2 Sons, aged 14 and 11, all enjoyed the lodge.

  • "The photos don’t do this property justice as it is far bigger than we thought it would be!"

    Ideally positioned- very private, quiet and beautiful views. South facing garden- enjoyed the sun until very late in the evening. Amazing property- we all loved the games room and cinema room! Fab bedrooms, and bathrooms. Everything we needed and more! A real touch of luxury. It is also a fantastic base to explore wider Cornwall- easy access to main routes. We long to come back and we have just arrived home! Thank you for making our family holiday extra special!

  • "The lodge is situated in a private and quiet corner site with superb views."

    The layout, facilities and quality of the lodge is exceptional and we could tell a lot of thought had gone into it's design. It is such a relaxing and enjoyable lodge, with a superb games room, large south facing sun deck and very well appointed cinema room. Meadow Retreat is located in an ideal place to easily explore either the coast at Looe and Polperro or Bodmin Moor.
