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

A hidden gem that's worth a stay. Its near Truro & is a great place to use as a base. The house we had was of excellent standard. It was very clean & the kitchens were full of all equipment that we needed. The beds were extremely comfortable and lovely bright white bedding. My kids loved playing in the games... More

Stayed here of 2 weeks at end of July/start of August. We had a great time staying at the Valley, in a Haven cottage, which was tastefully decorated, and which was clean and cosy. Great facilities with the indoor/outdoor pool and excellent cafe. Staff were really friendly and helpful. Although we came in the summer season, it felt quiet and... More

This was a very relaxing holiday, with our dogs. and we were made very welcome. The property we stayed in was The Stables, usually when taking dogs on holiday the accommodation can be second rate to say the least. The accommodation at The Valley was first class, everything tip top standard and extremely comfortable. I would recommend The Valley to... More

First time I have been. Great location, good property, very tidy and well equipped. Wifi was not great which was frustration. I hope we go back. We stayed in a haven cottage which was enough for a family of 4. The pool and other facilities looked great although we didn't use them. Best thing was location. 40 minutes from padstow,... More

It was so liberating to go on a family holiday wiyhout taking the kitchen sink! (We have a 4 month old and 3 year old). Bed guards, travel cot with bedding all set up when we arrived. The facilities are excellent, everything onsite for when you don't want to go anywhere...and really only a short drive when you do. Everything... More

This our fifth visit to the Valley and once again we had a fantastic holiday. The cottages have been maintained well over the years and every last request is met with a positive outcome and a friendly smile. Recommended for all although be careful of the slopes as these can be quite a challenge for those with walking difficulties. Hope... More
