We stayed in Cottage 8, which had a lovely view from the kitchen across the valley and a nice, secluded garden off the living room. The cottage is extremely well equipped, all the beds were comfy, lots of bathrooms: a family bathroom, an ensuite and a guest loo. The location is great as well, so well placed between Truro and...

We stayed for 2 weeks in one of the two-bedroom split-level villas (No.11). The villa was well-equipped, very clean and spacious, in ine with my expectations for the price we paid. The Valley complex is well-maintained and had a good variety of leisure facilities to keep my family occupied while we were on site. The on-site restaurant was good, with... More

The accommodation is great. Standards are high, a clean well equipped property with everything we needed. The staff are very friendly and helpful. It was easy to get a paper delivered each day - a nice touch! Mobile reception on EE is very poor in this area and the free WiFi is useful but not quick enough for streaming. A... More

We booked The Valley on the recommendation of a work colleague of mine, staying for a week in June in one of the two bed dwellings. When we arrived we found our house easily and it was well-appointed and comfortable, with a nice open plan living and dining area. The bedrooms were a reasonable size but the king size bed... More

4th time we've been and its still great. The cottages are very well specced and immaculately clean. The facilities are all well maintained and we spent quite a lot of time in the on-site pool or at Cafe Azur, which I think had improved since our last stay. Just loads to do within 20 mins drive, beaches NT property etc..Looking... More
