Furnished to a high standard and decorated well throughout, this compact, contemporary open-plan living area has everything today’s holidaymaker could possibly need for a well-earned break.

A mere four miles from the town of Launceston, the charming village of Egloskerry is home to this charming, single storey lodge. With just the one double bedroom, this little cottage makes the ideal spot for a romantic getaway. Fronting a minor country road, the lodge is well positioned for local amenities and with so many walking and cycling opportunities nearby visitors don't have to look far beyond the front door for something to do.

This is a great, well-appointed property which would make a good base whilst exploring all that Cornwall has to offer.


Amazing little cottage with lovely hosts
Many thanks for the thoughtful gifts from Melissa that's the best host to date, lovely little cottage in a ideal base for ventures to both Cornwall and Devon. Although next door (ish) we had hardly seen or heard them and Jessie is a lovely dog, I would recommend this cottage to others wanting the pease and tranquil feel and that's what we had, two weeks of... thanks very much again and all the best x

Mr & Mrs
We are travelling back to Lincolnshire from what has been an amazing week in Cornwall, our first holiday as a family of three. Palmers Lodge has been perfect for us and Melissa went above and beyond to make sure our stay was as comfortable as possible with a 5 month old baby. On arrival we were greeted by Melissa with a Cream Tea, flowers, wine and milk which really was lovely. The Lodge has everything you could possibly need, it has been finished with a high spec and is very modern. The location of the Lodge is perfect as a base for travelling around Cornwall with St Ives being about an hour and 20 minutes away. Thank you for making our holiday so perfect Melissa, it was lovely to meet you and I hope your next visitors enjoy Palmers Lodge as much as the ?Palmers? did xx

Great location for exploring all of Cornwall
From the moment you arrive you can see that this is a great place to stay. The owner Melissa has tried to think of everything, from a cream tea, flowers and wine when you arrive (we don't drink, so she got us something non-alcoholic :) Thanks Melissa) to a massive store of guides, maps and leaflets, and everything inbetween. (Hair dryer, iron and ironing board, washing machine .... even a kitchen sink LOL) Please be aware, some of the write ups for the cottage may make it seem unclear about the wifi. There IS wifi and it came in great for our Amazon Firestick). There is also a folder full of instruction books and tips for the cottage. Please read it, it is invaluable. (Thanks Melissa...again) The cottage is in a great location to explore all of Cornwall, so we did. Bude, Padstow, Lands End, Mousehole, Mevagissey, Newquay and other places too many to mention. A few tips to first time travellers to Cornwall (like us on this trip), if you are following the satnav then most of the country roads are just wider than the car, so be prepared to reverse to the nearest passing point. Take your time and be patient. When eating outside in Cornwall USE EXTREME CAUTION as the seagulls hunt in packs. We were witness to several ice-creams and pasties lost to these avian scavengers, LOL. Also if you intend to go and cook in the cottage please take heed of the instruction book in the cottage and turn on the extractor fan even when doing toast (if you can, leave the door slightly ajar as well). When shopping for supplies and/or petrol try the local 24 hour Tesco supermarket, while you are there grab a leaflet from "Cornwall Gold" this has an invaluable map of the area to take around with you. We planned days out around this and used it to find places nearby to wherever we were ( not that there aren't ample maps in the cottage, but you can scribble and make notes on this one). There is a hoover and a dustpan and brush for cleaning up, but if you are like we are, a pack of all purpose wipes helped for day to day cleaning and also to leave the cottage as we found it, spotlessly clean.All in all a great cottage and a great holiday (Try not to overdose on the Poldark references !! ;) )

The location of Palmers Lodge was perfect for exploring both coasts. Coming home in the evening to such a nice home made the holiday complete.

Anniversary Break
The cottage was an absolute delight to stay in. The owners were very pleasant made themselves known to us , offered any help and advice as was needed. Brilliant cream tea was ready for us on arrival. It made an excellent stop for us to visit all of Cornwall from Bude in the North to Plymouth in the South and all the way to Lands End. Cottage was immaculate. Only drawback was no Pub within walking distance All in all a superb break
