If you are thinking of booking a stay here, stop thinking and book it, you will not be sorry. nothing is too much trouble for the staff. Truro is only 4 miles away and everywhere in south west Cornwall is accessible.The valley is dog friendly as are many of the local pubs should you wish to eat out.

Back to The Valley again, this time later in the year, October. This time staying in The Croft again, lovely property, dog and child friendly. We had a great time with our Son, Daughter in law and Granddaughter aged 2 and a half. The Norway Inn was great for food and the Cafe Axur was very good but rather expensive... More

We're back at The Valley AGAIN. We're here for 10 nights (tonight is night 7). The highlight so far was yesterday. Children were invited to carve pumpkins and make/decorate halloween cakes. Then they ran off into the woods for a treasure hunt and trick or treated round all the cottages (guests left lit pumpkins outside if they were happy to... More

Booked a 3 night weekend stay. On the phone we were told we could be put in any property but wouldn't be the stables so was surprised on arrival to see that we were in the stables. Looked a bit disappointing from the outside but once you get in its a complete turnaround. It's clean spacious tastefully decorated and so... More

My husband and I have just visited The Valley for a babymoon, or in other words our last couple-only holiday before our first baby arrives in November and we were super chuffed with our choice of destination! The Valley is a smallish holiday village of super nice, luxury accommodation just outside Truro. We were really impressed with the finish of... More

We very much enjoyed our family holiday here. Beautiful cottages, great cafe, outdoor swimming pool and convenient location for Falmouth beaches and driving further afield in Cornwall. The local village has a good Spar which is great for groceries and meat (not so good for veg). All round very enjoyable. Note - wifi is not good at all though!

This year will be our fifth visit to Cornwall, and The Valley. The complex is along a secluded road, with automated gates. The reception is welcoming, with very friendly staff. Some of the cottages are situated on a hill, which slopes down to Café Azur. This serves delicious food and drink, as well as being in a beautiful setting, but... More

We had a lovely, relaxing holiday at The Valley. The accommodation was very comfortable and carefully thought out and in beautiful surroundings. We opted for the half board option which we loved-we had the flexibility to eat in the restaurant or in our holiday home each evening (which was very useful when the kids were tired)-the food was amazing too!...
