This was a lovely place, and I really enjoyed our stay. The house was clean and modern, with a great kitchen and living area, and the location was excellent for exploring Cornwall : around 10 mins each way to Falmouth or Truro. This was our first real trip to Cornwall, and Falmouth was somewhere the whole family adored. Service was... More

We booked for a long weekend - two adults and two children. The cottage (Beacon no. 24) was very clean and modern - everything worked and there were plenty of glasses, cups etc. Needed more dishwasher tablets and a couple of the kitchen doors were a bit wonky. Fudge and cider were a nice touch. Staff were lovely and very... More

We spent 4 nights here as a birthday break in November. The cottages are so well designed and equipt with lovely furniture - the beds are divinely comfy, and excellent kitchen & bathrooms.

Stayed the week before the October half term and had a fabulous time. Hubby and I had the place to ourselves from Monday to Friday and two of grown-up children joined us on the Friday evening.

Another wonderful stay at The Valley. Chose a "Haven" style cottage again as we love the open plan layout downstairs and the vaulted ceiling in the master bedroom is so nice. The sheep were in the field behind so our 7 year old son was lulled to sleep by them and the stream behind (we all get a great night's... More

Our second visit to this special place. A very friendly and personal approach to customer service in all areas. The accommodation is spacious and well maintained at the luxury end. The Halloween event for children was excellent all afternoon and evening, culminating in the professional spooky storytelling by the camp fire with John Brolly which was most memorable. The resort...

Great to hear that you all enjoyed your half term holiday at The Valley, especially our Halloween events which we had lots of fun dressing up and taking part in too! It was a real treat to have John Brolly with us again this year, and to have such luck with the weather! Look forward to welcoming you back soon. More

The split-level bungalows are well appointed, clean and comfortable with reasonable wi-fi facility. Nice, private and quiet environment. The Cafe Azur has a basic menu for snacks and simple meals.
