The property

Truro 6.8 miles.

Uncover this secluded lakeside retreat in the quiet and peaceful village of Trispen, near to Truro, and the Atlantic coast of Cornwall.

Dog & Duck is a wonderful timber lodge with a rustic charm, perfect for a much needed romantic escape into nature, with wildlife on your doorstep and fishing in the lake.

Be welcomed into a harmonious interior with a soft colour palette beneath traditional exposed beams, enjoy unique features complimenting the country style like the antler chandelier and upcycled tractor seat stools at the breakfast bar.

Settle with your significant other on the pretty floral sofa and enjoy views of the lake outside while the heat from the woodburning stove keeps you warm.

The rugged timber breakfast bar is a lovely spot to perch at while you watch a delicious dish be lovingly prepared for you in the kitchen; find all the appliances you need here including an electric oven and gas hob, fridge freezer and a microwave, with sweet touches echoing the lodge's namesake with duck print blinds.

Spend slow afternoons lazing in the hammock by the lake, eat lunch alfresco at the picnic bench and delight in a spot of fishing in the lake for idyllic days in nature.

Look forward to winding down at the end of another tranquil day on the king-size bed, the wrought-iron frame adding to the quaint, classic aura, with a sleek shower room to freshen up in when you wake, before feeling snug in the provided bath robes.

The charming village of Trispen is home to a local shop for any essentials, or you can venture further into the city of Truro where you will find a fine selection of dining opportunities and a variety of shops and independent boutiques that line the pretty cobbled streets.

Discover the iconic history and heritage here too, with Truro Cathedral presenting a beautiful piece of architecture rising above the rest of the town, and the Victoria Gardens commemorating Queen Victoria's Diamond Jubilee home to exotic flowers and shrubs.

Visit the north coast of St Agnes and visit the famous Wheal Coates tin mill next to Chapel Porth Beach, following the South West Coast Path to Trevaunance Cove, an idyllic spot with sandy shores and clear waters.

Head over to the Eden Project for an amazing day of marvelling at a world of plant life within the two huge biomes containing tropical and Mediterranean climates, and stop in at The Lost Gardens of Heligan while you're in the area to wander around the lush grounds with national collections, wildlife and Victorian gardens.

Dog & Duck lies in a beautiful scenic spot awaiting you return as you explore the wonders of Cornwall.

Truro is the retail centre of Cornwall with a good range of independent shops as well as national stores all within a compact city centre. With its eclectic range of art galleries, bars, restaurants, cinema, theatre, museum and outstanding cathedral this small city is a superb year round destination. Steeped in history and intriguing architecture there is always plenty to do and see. Just meandering through the Georgian cobbled streets is a pleasure in itself. With many peaceful parks all within a short stroll from the centre it is a most relaxing city to visit. A wonderful day trip can be had from Truro to Falmouth along the stunning Fal estuary with many options to disembark and pick up the boat later along the scenic river trip.
