The most idyllic accommodation
The most wonderful location, accommodation and service.
We had a wonderful week at The Valley.
The food and amenities were amazing. Beautiful beaches and pubs were all in close distance. We are already looking to return.
When we left we were given a lovely goodie bag for our journey home.
We have stopped in 5 star accommodation all over the world and I would recommend The Valley to anyone.
Summer Trip to Cornwall
Booked a pet friendly gallery cottage through Voyage Prive and the experience was faultless from when we 1st booked right up to when we left. It’s the 1st time we’ve visited Cornwall, but we’re already looking at re-booking for next year. Loved the format of the cottage, having plenty of space inside, and lovely outdoor areas too. Even though the weather was hot & sunny all week the cottage thankfully remained cool at all times. Staff on-site were friendly and helpful at both reception and restaurant / bar. It was really well positioned for our trips out to St Mawes, St Agnes and other places we went to. Highly recommend to anyone thinking of visiting.
A hidden gem. The Valley is ideally situated as a base for visiting Cornwall. It is in a peaceful and secluded location, just outside Truro and offers spacious accomodation, indoor and outdoor pools, tennis courts etc.
Peaceful and Perfect!
We booked up for a quick Cornish break and were pleasantly surprised at how lovely it was at The Valley. The accommodation was beautiful, clean, well equipped and comfortable. Loved the layout as the kitchen was on a mezzanine with a balcony overlooking the pool and countryside beyond. Great place to stay if you’re bringing a dog as plenty of woodland walks around the site. Normally my dog takes a couple days to settle into any holiday accommodation but she was settled almost immediately here. Dog basket, blankets, dog bowl etc all provided too. When you arrive you feel like you are in the middle of nowhere but its actually a brilliant location as smack in the middle of Truro and Falmouth so not lots of travelling involved. A couple miles down the road is a ferry which costs £10 return to take you to the Roseland area which has stunning beaches and villages. Lovely indoor and outdoor pool, games room, tennis courts etc. In the village of Carnon Downs is a large Spar shop which sells everything so no need to eat out all the time. Feels safe and secure as the resort is gated which is a bonus.
Lovely family trip
We have absolutely loved our family stay here. The cottage was spotlessly clean and had a gorgeous countryside view. The indoor pool was lovely and warm and the staff are so friendly and helpful. We will definitely be back! Thank you the Valley
At least our third visit. Fabulous place to stay. The cottages are like home from home, located in a beautiful spot with lots of places to visit within a short drive, everything you might need is there and the staff are excellent. We cannot recommend it enough.
Perfect in every way, super clean and well appointed and equipped accommodation. Staff are extremely helpful, nothing is too much trouble. Location, stunning, with great views. Highly recommended we will definetely be back!
Have booked to re-visit. We love this place, the "cottages" are excellent and the staff are super good in all regards. Location is ideal mot get to lots of different types of place within 30 minutes drive.
Family fun week
We enjoyed our week in cottage number 42. It was very clean & comfortable. It was well kitted out in the kitchen. We were made very welcome with a lovely welcome pack. My Granddaughter, was very pleasantly surprised with her Halloween bowl .of goodies
Great for a family retreat.
It was our second time there, the staff is very helpful and welcoming making us feel very quickly at home. The pool facility is easy to book and the outdoor pool is very warm during the summer months. The restaurant on site is great when you don’t feel like cooking. Overall a gem of a place we will definitely be back.
We had been to this holiday cottage 3 times before in 2007-09, and decided to give it another go.
we were really glad we did as it has kept its charm, and I remembered why we liked it in the first place - peace and rest!
Stayed in the 5* cottage nr Falmouth, the layout suits well and all the fixtures are classy, not like some holiday homes where any old furniture will do. In fact the place has been redecorated since we came last and was in better condition than it was 6 years ago!
The beds are sumptuous and you catch up on sleep, the kitchen is well stocked with utensils and the kids loved it. You can get DVD's or board games up at reception which helped, there is a games room with table tennis, bar billiards, table football, and a pool table.
The key though is the indoor swimming pool, not huge but great for a family, and the restaurant "Café Azur" has excellent food every time.
The weather was nice but to be honest even if it wasn't we would have still enjoyed the stay a great home from home, the beaches are great and scenery fantastic.
I would recommend to anyone wanting to rest and have a relaxing time.
Stayed April 2015, travelled with family
A great break for us all. We enjoyed the relaxed and peaceful surroundings but is well located near to Falmouth (which is great) and Truro.
The cottages are very well equipped with top quality equipment that suited us very well.
We would recommend this cottage to any one.
Stayed May 2015
