  • "The only thing I would change is the position of the television in the lounge."

    It is far too high. I know there’s a trend for placing TVs high on a wall (typically above a fire place) but it only works if you are standing up (like in a pub) otherwise it’s literally a pain in the neck when trying to watch from the comfort of the settee.

  • "A wonderful stay."

    The lodge had fantastic facilities and Michelle was extremely helpful with showing us the lodge on arrival as well as imparting local knowledge. If we stay near Truro again, we will definitely book this accommodation. Thank you.

  • "The site is located just a 5 min drive from Truro, and near to 3 main supermarkets and the town centre."

    The site is very peaceful away from the main road, good for walks around the surrounding countryside - however we used it more as a base for exploring the surrounding area. The Lost Gardens of Heligan are about 40-50 min away the beaches just outside of Hayle around 30 min, the fantastic Porthcurno beach, Land’s End, and the Tin Coast a bit further - probably 1hr to 1hr 20 depending on traffic. The lodge is well kitted out with all main appliances and smart TV’s in each bedroom and the living area (not Apple TV). Enough crockery for a family, but could do with more if the dishwasher is to be used efficiently. Facilities at the site are lodges only, so bring ball games etc. we brought a Swing ball and left it up all week. The deck is nice for an evening meal / drink. We thought a great addition would be a hot tub for sunny evenings / sunsets to put the icing on the cake! All in all it met our needs, some small tweaks to make recycling easier, the decking door needed some play to close, and we couldn’t get the outside lights to work (but could just have been us!) but otherwise a very enjoyable stay to explore the surrounding area. Many thanks!

  • "The Elm was spotlessly clean, well equipped to a high standard."

    As in other reviews the floorboards do creak a lot and are loud, so if anybody is a light sleeper it can be a problem. Do to the hot weather the patio door seems to stick so is very hard to shut.

  • "My husband and I stayed at The Elm with my mother and it was a really lovely and quiet place to stay without being overlooked."

    We were greeted by Michelle who was absolutely lovely. Everywhere was well maintained and clean inside. A fabulous lodge and perfect for our needs. The only small annoyance was the creaky floorboards that were everywhere. I found myself trying to get down the corridor figuring out where to walk to prevent creaks like Indiana Jones avoiding booby traps. Windows could have done with a clean on the outside as the view was lovely and was spoilt by the cobweb’s. However it was the countryside so I am probably being a bit picky even though the spiders were huge.

  • "Another lovely holiday stay at Elm, this time with a friend with accessibility problems who was able to relax and enjoy the space."

    Two small issues in need of attention 1) the incredibly squeaky floors 2) the beautiful picture windows in need of a good external clean. Otherwise everything fabulous

    toilet roll holders were annoying as roll kept falling off. option for more pillows for the beds as they were a bit flat.

  • "Our stay at Elm lodge was just the tonic we needed as a family, the last 12 months have been somewhat difficult but our well being has improved enormously after our holiday."

    The lodge exceed our expectations, having a family member who is disabled accessibility issues can be a worry. No such worries with Elm lodge, ramp access to lodge, spacious doorways and a wonderful wet room/toilet. Also Michelle and Vinnie, lodge management, were absolute stars. Nothing was to much trouble their help and assistance made our stay 5 star. Will definitely be returning and would recommend this accommodation to anyone, especially if you have mobility issues. Again big thank you to Michelle and Vinnie

  • "Overall the property was spacious, clean, and good value for money."

    The three bedrooms are large with TV and the two en-suite are clean and modern. If I was to be picky they need a shaver/ electric toothbrush socket and my wife said that it would have been nice to have a full length mirror. The premises are in the middle of nowhere and the golf club is abandoned so the nearest bar and shop is a couple of miles away up a very steep road. Overall the accommodation is excellent but you are a drive away from any amenities.

    Thank you for taking the time to complete your feedback which has been discussed with the owner. A shaver/electric toothbrush socket is fitted to the sides of the illuminated mirrors in the bathrooms in each lodge. Full length mirrors are now also provided in each of the lodges. Property Owner

Killiow Estate Lodges

A select collection of contemporary hi spec Eco Lodges nestling in the heart of the beautiful and historic Killiow Country Estate, the perfect base for families, groups, large parties or special occasions and ideally located for exploring the dramatic and stunning north coast, or the many tranquil coves and creeks of the south coast, both of which are within a 10 mile radius.

Truro, Cornwall’s historic county town with its abundance of amenities, cathedral, museum and eclectic range of art galleries, bars and restaurants is a 10 minute drive. A daily boat service between Truro and Falmouth which showcases the magnificent river and coastal views is a great favourite.
