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. The facilities were good - we ate at the restaurant where the fish was super, the gym was all we needed, the dogs could walk very close... More

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. The cottage was immaculately clean, very well equipped and the cider and fudge that was left was a nice touch. The beds were very... More

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

We had a great week at The Valley, which having read all the other reviews was - for us - as good as the very best of them. The other reviews were useful as we had one of our number recovering from a leg injury and so we requested accommodation with a minimum of hill walking. We were put in... More

We went for a 1 week break. The reception staff, especially Meg and Vicky, were really helpful and friendly. 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. When given 24 hours notice, however, Craig and Chef Louis put... More

Stayed at The Valley for 3 nights with friends on a part business part weekend break. What a little gem! We stayed in number 15. It was spotlessly clean, modern and very comfortable. Everything you need could be found and a lovely touch greeted us, a box of Cornish fudge and cider! We sampled the indoor pool n jacuzzi, also... More

The Valley is a cut above, from your first entrance to the gated properties. Staff are not only pleasant but helpful and make you feel right at home. The property we stayed in had everything we could have needed and more, at a top level in quality, cleanliness and presentation. The pools are very clean and well looked after and... More

This was our 4th visit to the Valley and we were glad to see little has changed. Set in a quiet area you are only a 10 minute drive to the capital Truro, but also close to Falmouth, St Mawes etc. so although it may seem odd to stay in Cornwall and not be on the sea the Valley does... More

All the reviews are right, this is a lovely quiet place to stay in a luxury home from home, but it could be just that little bit better - if you're offering WiFi don't say it's a bit hit and miss at peak times, put in enough capacity. I guess a lot of people expect internet access and it wouldn't... More
