  • "We absolutely loved our stay!"

    The place was simply stunning and the view was incredible that we had at the back of the lodge. Its by far our best weekend we’ve had away. If your a couple looking for a little break this is perfect for you. Your completely separate to others and the view that the back looks upon is simply stunning whilst enjoying the tub The staff are all lovely and the community are so friendly. We wish we found this stay before! We will 100000% be back and be recommending. Thank you for a beautiful stay

  • "Hi we have stayed at this property before, we travel regularly to Cornwall my mams hometown she is now 83 and actually lived on Havett Rd in the 40/50’s as a farm."

    I had 3 lodges for my family 8,10 and 11. They were particularly clean and the decking dangerous for the little ones. There was a leak in the bathroom at 11 which looks like it had bern leaking for a long time by the colour of the wooden floor. We stay the same week every year not sure about next year now very disappointed.

  • "There was a noticeable smell in the family bathroom which we reported on arrival."

    We were told to open windows and doors which we did do but it never really went away. I do not understand how when the property was checked earlier in the day it was not noticed as it was really strong. We just dealt with it. We did speak to the lady who we saw completing hot tub checks. There was not the usual amount of bubbles coming out of all the jets. She said she didn't have the right tools and would come back the next day to sort it. Two different people did come and clearly with tools trying to fix it but really it did not improve.

    Thank you for your feedback Beth, we really do appreciate you taking the time to leave us your thoughts. I am so sorry to hear that you had an issue with your hot tub during your stay and also that there was an odour in the main bathroom. This lodge has recently undergone refurbishment, so these issues have now been rectified. I really hope you will come back one day to experience these changes.

  • "The lodge is set in a lovely, peaceful location."

    There's nothing else on site but there is plenty to do out and about. Although we wouldn't recommend the pub down the road. The lodge is very comfortable & roomy. The view from the lodge is perfect & we felt very private from the other lodges. It had everything we needed. The only problem we had was there was a smell from the main bathroom. It was solved by putting the plugs in the plug holes. We had a lovely holiday

  • "The bathroom emanated a sewage smell for the duration of our visit and despite reporting this a number of times the maintenance team was unable to rectify the issue."

    This resulted in a family of 4 being relegated to a small en-suite off the main bedroom as the main bathroom was unusable

    Mrs Christina MartinAug 2022

  • "Excellent standard of accommodation."

    FYI. I did point out to the hot tub man that there was a loose plank outside and also I would point out to the owners there are 3 nail heads slightly protruding outside bedroom 2/bathroom. Didn't cause a problem you just might want to be aware. If we get back to Cornwall we will be happy to holiday at these chalets again.

  • "Beautiful property with everything we needed."

    Hot tub fantastic and very private. Most comfortable bed ever in main bedroom. Would highly recommend and will definitely be back.

  • "Lovely place, thank you."

    Shame there wasn't the option of a thinner duvet though - the one provided was too hot for this time of year!

  • "Unfortunately we were very disappointed with this property."

    We stayed here in March and left feedback then that the property was not as shown in the photos. We consider that the items that were missing should remove it from the luxury class. When we arrived this time, on entering, the lodge immediately smelt damp. The problem was that the dishwasher was not working and had been leaking, and looking at the reviews, the previous visitors had already reported it. We called the required number to complain and it was replaced on the Saturday but the damp smell continued all week as the water had permeated into the wall and floor. This meant that when we were in the lodge we had to have the windows and doors open. We requested a change of lodge but were informed that there was no other lodge available. We were advised that we could return home and a full refund was offered, but this was not really an option as it was a four hour journey and we had a 11 month old baby with us. We had been looking forward to this break. There was also a sewage smell in the bathroom which stayed all week which we reported. Although we enjoyed our stay in Cornwall we did not enjoy our stay in the lodge. We believe that some compensation would be in order. We welcome your reply to this feedback. We have booked with Sykes cottages in the past and hope that we can do so in the future should this be resolved. You ask if we want the review published; we'll leave that decision to you.

The property

With an idyllic location, set back from the hustle and bustle of Dobwalls village in Cornwall, is this stylish holiday home, 8 Horizon View.

You will find accommodation to the highest possible standard, nestled across from the slopes of Bodmin Moor and the southern Cornish coastline, inviting six guests to enjoy a true escape with a private hot tub, flexible sleeping arrangements, and an open-plan living space.

Stepping into the lodge, the solid wood furniture and contemporary fixtures and fittings add a touch of class to the interior; a place where you can gather with friends and talk about the days gone by.

Use this space to cook up a delicious meal for the whole family or put your feet up with a good book and wallow in the peace and quiet.

Step out onto the decking and feel the fresh Cornish air on your face; the patio furniture makes a good spot for dining alfresco.

Why not take a dip in the luxurious hot tub and admire the patchwork of green and yellow fields, lined with hedgerows and trees?

Retreat to bed, selecting between a double with TV and en-suite, a twin with TV, and a further twin, all serviced by a sleek bathroom, before awakening to an itinerary filled with adventure.

There is plenty to do in the surrounding area, activities and attractions are in abundance; outdoor enthusiasts can spend their time exploring the surrounding area, including the idyllic Bodmin Moor, Moyclare Garden during warmer months and Adrenalin Quarry is open all year round for those feeling more adventurous.

Set amongst a stunning backdrop, visit the breath-taking Siblyback Lake and enjoy a relaxing cruise or test your hand at a range of water sport activities.

Venture into the nearby towns of Liskeard and Bodmin should you fancy an amble around a network of quirky streets, popping in and out of independent shops in search of a souvenir to take home.

The Monkey Sanctuary in Looe makes a lovely day out and the picturesque fishing harbour offers crabbing and local pubs aplenty.

Sit out and enjoy a pint as the boats glide out to sea.

Polperro is another delightful village worth a visit, with narrow streets and colourful houses among gift boutiques and pasty shops.

8 Horizon View is remarkable retreat to be enjoyed in all seasons.
