  • "Our family holiday at 21 Meadow Retreat was everything we hopped it would be."

    Clean and comfortable. Beautiful views. Lovely location for walking our dog. We thoroughly enjoyed the hot tub and open plan living. We'll be sure to return in the future.

  • "Excellent property."

    Very well laid out site with plenty of open spaces. Spacious lodge, very well fitted out. Lots of space outside on the deck Good hot tub, although its proximity to the glass surrounding the deck made it awkward to lift the top off it

    Thank you so much for leaving us your thoughts and experiences after your stay with us at 21 Meadow Retreat, Alan. We really do value our guests feedback and suggestions. I am very happy that you enjoyed your visit and hope you will be back to see us again in the future. Sally, Guest Services, Charteroak Property Owner

  • "21 Meadow Retreat is the perfect lodge to relax."

    Great Hot tub maintained daily by a friendly and polite team. Lodge is clean and well equipped, with double and twin beds which both open on to the Decking and duck pond. Charteroak Team are amazing ensuring guest care is paramount. A Power Cut as result of Storm Henk galvanised them into action offering a lodge at their sister site. This is just one of many reasons we keep returning.

    It was so lovely to have you back to stay with us again Jeff, it always makes me so happy to read your feedback. Thank you so much for leaving us your thoughts and for your understanding, when the power failure meant a change in scenery for the night! We can't wait to to see you again very soon!

  • "Lovely place."

    well appointed kitchen. Nice outdoor seating by pond. Reasonably secluded. Only small criticism is that the bath was to slow draining to shower in .the shower in the ensuite was fine though.

    Thank you so much for leaving us your lovely feedback Keith, I am really happy to hear that you had a wonderful stay at 21 Meadow Retreat and loved the lodge. I appreciate you pointing out the issue with the bath, I have passed this to our maintenance team to resolve. I hope you will be back to stay with us again before you know it!

  • "We had a fantastic weekend at 21 Meadow Retreat, it was such an enjoyable, relaxing, comfortable, and peaceful stay."

    The large hot tub was amazing, being well maintained daily and located in a secluded position with easy access from all the rooms. The lodge is located on a great plot, with huge wrap around south facing decking with wonderful scenic views. A superbly appointed master bedroom suite was complimented by a twin bedroom with long and comfortable beds. It has a very well-equipped kitchen with an enormous countertop making the open-plan main room such a sociable space. The booking process with Sykes Cottages was very smooth. The Southern Halt customer communication has significantly improved since our last stay with the benefit of the on-site office. Cannot wait to stay again!

    Wow! It sounds like you had an amazing time with us Peter! I am absolutely delighted to read how much you loved your lodge and the beautiful resort it's situated in! We really appreciate your feedback, so thank you for your time. Please come back for your third visit very soon. Sally, Guest Services, Charteroak Property Owner

    The property itself must have one of the best locations for privacy, the hot tub is a lovely addition which isn't overlooked. Customer service is exceptional contacting us prior to our stay, during our holiday & after our return to ensure we had an enjoyable time.

    I am so happy to hear that you loved your lodge and hot tub Vanessa and enjoyed a relaxing, peaceful stay with us at 21 Meadow Retreat. Thank you so much for leaving us your thoughts! Hopefully you will be back to see us again very soon. Sally, Guest Services, Charteroak Property Owner

  • "Fantastic Lodge with everything to make a relaxing and enjoyable holiday."

    Customer Service was 10/10 - Tracey was outstanding ensuring our needs were met. The hotub was serviced daily. If we could change anything it would be the two sofas as they are not the most comfortable. 21 Meadow Retreat looks over fields set in a quiet area not far from village of Dobwalls, close to the moors, with added benefit of being dog friendly. The Old Mill Restaurant situated at the sister site in Lanreath (15mins by car) is well worth a visit. Fantastic food and service from Amanda and Tyler. Looking forward to returning for Christmas.

    Thank you yet again for your amazing feedback Jeff, we are overjoyed by your comments and delighted that you had a fantastic stay at 21 Meadow Retreat. Thank you also for your thoughts on the sofa, I have passed your comments to our Guest Service Manager, so she can look into this issue. We so look forward to your return visit at Christmas.

  • "Overall presentation was good, around the edges things looked a little bit tired, ready for a bit of modernisation especially in the showers ."

    We had to do a bit of cleaning around the kitchen area but that’s just us. Trees and bushes at the back of the lodge could do with a good trim to give better views from the decking area and a brush to sweep the leaves away . Bit picky but at that price we have had better equipped lodges in Cornwall. Having said that we had a fantastic time.

    I am so happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay with us at 21 Meadow Retreat, despite the issues you found. Thank you for letting us know your experiences, I have passed on your comments to the relevant teams, so that they can be rectified. I hope that you would still consider coming back to stay with us at some time in the future. Sally, Guest Services, Charteroak Property Owner

  • "The lodge is really good."

    I like the soft furnishings and well equipped kitchen. The numerous opening doors makes the outdoor/ indoor feel work well. The decking had several different options for seating and sun bathing . The hot tub was clean,large and was used daily. We enjoyed our stay very much. My only comment would be that the duvet on the main bed was too heavy for the time of year.a summer option would have helped. A small point in a great property.

    Thank you for sharing your experiences at 21 Meadow Retreat with us Jeff, we really appreciate your time. I am delighted to hear that you loved your lodge and made full use of the outdoor area and hot tub! Thank you very much for your suggestion of a lighter weight duvet during the summer, I have passed this idea on to our General Manager. I hope you will be back to see us again before you know it!

  • "Exceptional location, the lodge was extremely clean and the views were fantastic."

    Extremely peaceful. Would highly recommend. This is our 5th time staying at Southern Halt and 21 MR was our favourite lodge and holiday so far. One little niggle would be that we choose Southern Halt for the views from the lodge and hottub, however there are a number of bushes now overgrowing in front of the lodge and blocking the wonderful views. It doesn't make sense, I would definitely cut these back. Overall it was wonderful

    Thank you very much for your amazing feedback Charlotte and also for your recommend. We are delighted that you keep coming back to stay at Southern Halt, that in itself speaks volumes! I appreciate you leaving us your thoughts on the bushes surrounding the lodge, I have passed on your comments to our grounds team, so they can take a look at this.
