This beautifully presented, privately owned detached lodge on the Retallack Resort & Spa can sleep up to 6 adults and 2 children in four bedrooms.

Within easy reach of the vibrant coastal resort of Newquay and the exclusive fishing village of Padstow, Willow Lodge is a beautifully presented, privately owned detached residence on the Retallack Resort & Spa in the parish of St Columb Major. The accommodation is generously proportioned, enough to accommodate two families in comfort or indulge with the space for one. The entrance hall leads to a twin bedroom, bunk bedroom(double bottom, single top), family bathroom, open plan lounge with TV, dining area and kitchen on the ground floor.

Large French doors lead directly onto a spacious enclosed private decked area complete with table and chairs. Upstairs offers a spacious master suite with en-suite shower room, super king four poster bed and fabulous vaulted ceilings, a separate twin bedroom, it's own lounge with TV, balcony and full height windows offering far reaching views of the Cornish countryside. The property is well located at the end of a no thru road on a large corner plot, parking for up-to 4 cars adjacent to the lodge.

Complimentary resort facilities include: Indoor swimming pool, gym, sauna, steam room, outdoor children's adventure play area, access to lake fishing.

The Cornwalls North coast is a playground for guests of all ages with endless sweeps of pale sand beaches, pounding Atlantic surf, towering cliff tops and picturesque fishing villages. Families will find no shortage of seasonal lifeguard patrolled beaches at Newquay, Rock and Polzeath and endless opportunities for fun, even when the sun is not shining, with The Blue Reef Aquarium, Dairy Land Farm World, Newquay Zoo and Camel Creak Adventure Park all located within a 10 mile drive. Willow Lodge is well placed for a relaxing or active break, with activities as genteel as walking the dramatic coastal path or golfing on the coast at the Trevose Golf and Country Club to the extremes of kitesurfing and wave skiing at The Extreme Academy Surf School at Watergate Bay.

Outstanding from start to finish
Stayed week beginning 26 June for 7 nights, party of 7. Lodge was spotlessly clean on arrival and all communication from owner pre arrival was very good. Clear instructions and helpful information. Upon arrival the lodge was spotlessly clean with a helpful information pack left. There are 4 bedrooms (upstairs on suite is huge), 2 living rooms, a really well equipped kitchen diner and 2 bathrooms with upstairs and downstairs balconies. The lodge is on probably one of the best sites on the whole park with ample parking for 4 cars and great views of the nearby hills from the glass front of the lodge. TVs in upstairs and downstairs living rooms with TVs for use with DVD's only in the bedrooms. The lodge had quality WiFi as well. Bbq and all equipment and garden furniture on downstairs balcony. Used the restaurant at resort which was lovely and also the swimming pool which was really nice. Fully equipped gym, flo rider and a lake with wake boarding and lots of other water based activities. All in all we had a great holiday and not a negative thing I could say about the lodge or the resort. Will hopefully return.

Recharging our batteries
A delightful, tastefully furnished Lodge in a prime position at Retalack park. We have arrived home feeling refreshed and recharged and ready to face the onslaught of Christmas ( or rather lack of it this year). This lodge had everything we needed for a comfortable and relaxing stay. The weather, typical of this time of year was dreadful, but we were able to use the swimming pool and Flo rider. With covid restrictions in place we had the pool to ourselves which I must admit was rather nice. With beach visits and a visit to Camel Creek to see 'the real' santa our 3 days were well spent. Our dogs are a big part of our lives and were made to feel welcome. The Christmas tree was a lovely addition and made it feel special. Thank you. We will visit again.

Great base for exploring the North Cornish coast
We really enjoyed our week in Willow Lodge (number 10) on the Retallack resort, the property was very well appointed, immaculately presented, comfortable with two 'living room' areas, and had everything we needed. The only thing missing was oven gloves (but given COVID restrictions this was probably by design), honestly - that was about the only thing we missed! The location of the lodge was great, tucked away on the edge of the resort gave a good level of privacy. There were only 3 of us staying in the property plus our dog which meant loads of room, I think 8 could stay very comfortably, 10 would be fine, 12 might be a squeeze but very do-able. We did need to contact the property owner over a very minor issue to do with using the facilities at Retallack - they were back to us within a couple of hours and made the issue 'go away', so service and communication was also excellent. The property is ideal for the North Coast of Cornwall, Padstow or Wadebridge is 10 mins in the car, Newquay is 20/25 mins away. There is a small Tesco in Padstow, Tesco superstore in Wadebridge and large Morrisons in Newquay - so the area is well catered for if you want to self cater rather than eat out every evening. Port Issac is worth a mooch, not much there however it is very petty - but be warned, it's busy! Perranporth is a stunning beach which goes on for miles, great of you've got a dog and lots of lovely little cafe's to grab a coffee and cake. Tintagel is a very pretty little area with a lovely cliff walk and lots of places to eat, once again it was busy but easy parking and no queues for food etc. If you don't mind an hour in the car then head towards the South Coast, Mullion Harbor is beautify with a lovely little tea room, Gunwollow Church cove is worth a visit, Lizard Point is also very nice with a great cliff walk from Lizard Point to Kynance Cove then a walk back through farmland to the Lizard car park. In summary an excellent property, well appointed with everything you could need for a relaxing holiday and ideally placed for exploring Cornwall - would happily recommend it and would visit again.
