  • "Excellent accommodation within beautiful surroundings."

    Lodge 22 is homely, everything is very well maintained. The owners have thought of everything to offer a very comfortable stay. In my opinion there are no negatives, The Bodmin Holiday Park is also currently undertaking renovations of the swimming pool, fitness centre, restaurant, reception area, the lake, grounds and gardens. I would definitely revisit.

  • "We were very comfortable and everything we could need was in the property, plenty of china (rare) so we could use dishwasher most economically."

    Unfortunately the site had no recycling that we could find , but that seemed the same around the area we stayed , ended up taking home big bag to recycle at home .

  • "We loved the lodge, it was spacious, the location was great, the lodge itself has been really well maintained and there were lots of bits included in the lodge that made the stay even more comfortable (smart TV, games, DVD player, beach equipment to name a few) The only issue we had was the hot water, in the morning when showering it was extremely hot, however when we came to bath our girls between 6pm and 7pm the water was lukewarm at best, we had to add kettle water a couple of times."

    This was regardless of if we had showered in the morning, as we made a point of not doing so on one day to try and preserve the hot water but this made no difference. All in all though, a lovely lodge and we really enjoyed our time here! We would definitely stay here again.

  • "We had a very nice stay at lodge 22."

    The property was nice and bright and clean with lovely decor all round. The second bathroom downstairs is a bonus as the children had their own space. We had a little welcome pack with Cornish biscuits and some other bits like tea, coffee and hot chocolate which was nice. Kitchen was well equiped with with all the essentials and more for self catering. The location was perfect for seeing/ travelling to places in Cornwall. We didn't use the park facilities as went out every day but the site looked nice and well maintained. I will definitely recommend this place to friends and family. Thank you

  • "The lodge was absolutely stunning!"

    ! We were lucky enough to get snow during our stay which made it even more beautiful as it felt like a proper winter getaway! It was clean and tidy and very well equipped with pretty much everything we could need. The owners were so helpful and friendly with any queries we had and got back to us very quickly. We loved the interior as well, particularly the living room area as it was so cosy and well decorated! It was brilliant that the TV had free access to all the main streaming services as well, which was amazing for a movie night in! One of our favourite things about the lodge was the jacuzzi bath, which added a lovely touch of luxury to our stay! It was all perfect and we'll more than likely be back again one day and have already recommended it to friends and family! Thank you so so much for our beautiful holiday!!

    Thank you so much for such lovely feedback and we look forward to welcoming you again to our lodge very soon Property Owner

    The cottage is in a good location if you have a car and it is easy to visit National Trust houses, gardens and the Eden Project from here. It is clean, comfortable and reasonably well equipped. Unfortunately the restaurant, swimming pool and other central facilities were still closed due to change of ownership. We were very lucky with the weather and had a marvellous week.

  • "The property was clean and well equipped, the property could benefit with some comfy outdoor seating to relax in."

    The rooms are warm and comfortable. We had a problem with the water supply, we rang the contact number in the lodge book, who immediately dealt with it and reported back that it was a site issue, and arrange for bottled water to be provided. Ideal for a couple, or family of four, plenty of places to visit nearby, suggestions are in the lodge book, we have added a few extra aimed at those looking for more history. Most site activities were closed on our visit in March, so worth checking that on-site facilities are open, we however managed without them.

    Also, one of the beds was very uncomfortable . The Lodge it's self was quite spacious and comfortable.

    Thank you for your feedback but we did advise the client before they visited that the pool and gym were unavailable and beyond our control. We also asked the client which of the beds was uncomfortable but had no response. We have not had any issue before with comfort of beds so it would be helpful to know which one was not up to scratch for the client. Property Owner

  • "22 Waterside is the perfect getaway to a quiet but convenient place to access all of cornwall."

    Located only 5 mins off the a30 meaning you can get to the rest of cornwall quickly but you wouldn't realise the a30 is so close, you literally can't hear a thing the site is so peaceful. We have stayed at the site before and the facilities are excellent with a spa bath and rain shower a super comfy kingside bed upstairs, if you had extra guests two extra beds downstairs with an excellent en suite and the kitchen and living room space you need, normally the site has a pool, gym, restaurant and shop but these were closed due to covid,but other activities on site such as fishing, footgolf, segway and more are still running. The property was spotless on arrival and cleaned to an excellent condition with all surfaces sanitized. Finally a welcome pack containing local treats such as local produced crisps, fudge, shortbread, chocolate and more was an excellent addition! Overall I would I highly recommend 22 waterside for a luxury lodge in a quiet location with easy access to both north and south cornwall, with all the facilities you need to have a cracking holiday exploring Cornwall or relaxing in the lodge

The property

Lanivet 2.5 miles.

Situated on a serene lakeside holiday park, just 2.5 miles from the village of Lanivet and four miles from Bodmin and a stone’s throw from the A30, is this wonderful, A-frame holiday lodge.

22 Waterside Cornwall is equidistant to the long stretches of beaches and rugged scenery on the north coast, and the golden beaches and quaint fishing villages of the south coast, so families and couples can easily enjoy discovering everything that Cornwall has to offer.

The property is fronted by large, floor-to-ceiling glass doors, allowing light to spill into the sociable open plan living space.

From the comfy sofas, you can enjoy views of the neighbouring lodges and catch a glimpse of the resident birdlife that frequent the picnic table outside.

Beside the sitting area is a compact kitchen, so everyone can chat and plan the day whilst breakfast is cooking.

With a welcome pack bursting with local information, you can spend each morning pouring over guides and leaflets at the dining table, to make sure that every day is special.

The twin bedroom is on the ground floor with a spacious en-suite and plenty of storage, allowing you to unpack and make yourselves at home.

Upstairs you will find a bright double bedroom with a TV for lazy mornings in bed, and double doors leading onto a balcony where you can enjoy your morning coffee with a view.

Across the hall from the double bedroom is a good-sized modern bathroom with a corner bath and a large separate shower cubicle.

The holiday park is wonderful and although it is only a few minutes from the A30, the peace and quiet will amaze you.

Geese and moorhens meander around the lake and ponds, as well as a great selection of outdoor activities for you to enjoy on site; walks around the lake, coarse fishing, Segway, wakeboarding and FootGolf!

A few minute’s up the road you can join The Saint’s Way walking trail, a beautiful, 27-mile walking route across Cornwall, beginning at the picturesque harbour in Padstow and ending in Fowey.

The Eden Project is just short of eight miles away, the UK’s surfing capital, Newquay, is a half hour drive, or if you want to explore a little further, you can enjoy an ice cream at Land’s End in just over an hour in the car!

Cornwall is full to the brim with amazing attractions, mesmerising coastal vistas and breathtaking countryside - from such a fantastic base, you’re sure to have a holiday to remember!
