We had been to the Valley 3 times before in 2007-09, and decided to give it another go. we were really glad we did as it has kept its charm, and I remembered why we liked it in the first place - peace and rest! Stayed in a Beacon, the layout suits well and all the fixtures are classy, not... More

Thank you for your lovely review following your recent stay at The Valley. It's always great to hear when previous guests 'rediscover' us after a number of years, particularly when they feel that not only have we maintained standards but actually 'improved with age'! We look forward to welcoming you back to The Valley again soon. More

After booking and paying in full late January for a half term break we were really disappointed to see three weeks later the price had dropped by £200. We paid £725 for a weeks self catering two bedroom gallery cottage for two adults, three children including a 12 month old and also our dog. We spoke to the Valley expressing... More

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. 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.

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...

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.
