Valleybrook Holidays
Ranked #3 of 32 Specialty Lodging in Looe
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed August 22, 2012

Situated in a peaceful location with a little stream running behind the lodge. Very clean with no traces of dogs or their hairs (which is very good considering most people holiday here with their dogs). A nice little cream tea gift on arrival and a couple of dog treats for the pooch. Kid friendly with a games room which has a pool table (40p a game), football (foozball) table, table tennis, darts which are all free to play. The games room is located far enough away from the lodges so no noise pollution occurs from screaming children etc. A very short distance up the hill is swingball, badminton, climbing frame and trampoline. A bit further up from that is the dog paddock where you can let your dogs off the lead for a run around (and where you can get a mobile phone signal). Close to Looe and Polperro. Every trip is an adventure as you have to negotiate narrow lanes wide enough for one car although there are numerous pass points. Our only slight negative was the intermittent wifi signal. We were in the lodge nearest the games room which is furthest from the wifi boxes so at best we had a very weak signal although most of the time we couldn't even get that. Hosts were nice and friendly and can recommend getting some steaks and burgers from the farm 500m up the road for a nice barbie (BBQ's available to borrow from reception). Rooms upstairs as others have noted were quite warm. We will be back again!

We have just returned from a fantastic week in Gilliflower Villa. Very well equipped, with all mod cons (everything is evironmentaly friendly as well). The cream tea on arrival plus the dog biscuit for our little bichon Bella was such a nice touch. It's in such an idyllic place, with our friendly cows in the field next door but not too far from any of the wonderful places to visit in the surrounding countryside The playroom was a hit with our teenage boys and great for the evening as well as the wealth of DVDs, books and games for loan from reception. My only comment to improve would be maybe fans in the bedrooms, especially upstairs as it got very hot at night and as the weather was so good there wasn't a breeze at night to cool it down.
Would definitely stay here again and recommend to anyone. It's a real credit to Keith, Denise and Brian

Thank you for the review of your recent stay with us at Valleybrook, we are delighted that you enjoyed your time here and appreciate your recommendation.
With regards to the temperature of the upstairs bedrooms, we have now fitted window restraints to all the upstairs twin bedrooms in our Villas, which allow the windows to be partially opened to regulate the temperature, without compromising safety by letting them open too far.
We look forward to welcoming you back soon.

we feel very lucky to have found such a lovely place to stay that accepted ALL the family including four legged ones, this is just what we needed after a very stressful year it was so nice to see the whole family so relaxed especially seeing my husband smiling and laughing as he suffers with depression so haven't seen that for a while the facilities are amazing for all the family (DVDs, books, board games, game room, playground etc.) and what a lovely touch and a welcome sight on arrival to have cream tea's and even a treat for the dog (two dog biscuits) we would most definitely come back if denise, keith and brian could cope with us as i know the kids can be a bit mischievous at times but loved the rolling competition on the dog pen, we will be singing your praises when we get home to all our friends and family thank you all for such a brilliant time.

We have just spent 5 days at Valleybrook staying in the Gilliflower Villa with our 2 girls age 3 and 6 months. Accommodation at Valleybrook offers superb value for money, is situated in a lovely setting and is well located to explore a wide area of Cornwall. On the plus side for people with a young family: very clean, ample storage in bedrooms, well-equipped kitchen, supermarkets deliver, nice play area and lovely wood and meadowland to explore, self contained decking and garden area. Things to bear in mind (not necessarily negatives!): anticipate the upstairs bedrooms get quite warm in the warm weather (it was raining when we stayed!), I'd be hesitant of leaving upstairs bedroom windows open in twin room if children on their own as easy to climb/fall out of (key for window locks was supplied). Hand soap not supplied (although dishwasher tabs, washing up liquid is). Charges for using the washing machine a bit prohibitive (£4+). Overall, a lovely stay and we were made to feel very welcome. Thank you!

My husband, my mum, my sister-in-law, myself and my 12 month old son stayed at Valleybrook in June 2012. The accommodation was perfect for our needs and spotlessly clean (absolutely no need to worry about pet hairs or odours!).
Denise, Brian and Keith are very friendly and provide some lovely touches, such as the cream tea on arrival and it's great to find somewhere that doesn't charge extra for each little thing (the stair gate, cot and highchair were all free and they even loaned us a box of baby toys for the week as we couldn't take too many with us on the plane).
It was lovely to hear the stream flowing out the back and see the squirrels jumping around and the dogs being taken for walks. The gated decked area was perfect for our little one to practice his walking and the villa itself was very spacious and comfortable.
We will certainly be recommending Valleybrook to all of our friends.

Room Tip: Hocking villa (where we stayed) looks out onto the reception/laundry block, so views across the fiel...

We have just come back from a weeks holiday at Valleybrook & what can I say, it had everything you required and more, all mod-cons available, very impressed with the supply of necessities, i.e. milk, dishwasher tablets, cleaner, cloths, etc. There were 10 adults, 2 children and 2 dogs in total and Valleybrook catered for all our needs. We hired out two lodges which catered for 6 people in each. The lodges are very spacious with a large decking area, some nights all 12 of us were in the same lodge socialising, but still had plenty of space (sorry to the neighbours if we were a bit loud). It is so peaceful that we didn't surface most days till late morning as there wasn't anything to disturb your sleep, I was woken up once in the morning by a cow in the opposite field. The only two negative points were, you couldn't get any reception on your mobile unless you walked a very very steep hill, okay for fit people and we couldn't get any wifi in Chasewater lodge. These are obviously not necessary if you are wanting a nice quiet holiday away from it all, but when there is a large group of you and you need to get hold of someone or shop online it did become a bit of a nuasance. The nearest local (expensive) shop was about 2.5 miles away.
I would like to personally say a big thank you to Brian, Denise and especially Keith for sorting out the 50th birthday cake for me.
I would 100% recommend Valleybrook to all my friends and family if they are looking for a quiet, dog friendly holiday.

Thank you for taking the time to review your recent stay at Valleybrook and we are very pleased to hear that you enjoyed your holiday.
We were surprised to hear that you couldn’t access wifi from Chacewater Villa as our system is designed to give wifi access in all our accommodations, we will investigate this immediately and rectify any problems we may find.
As for the limited mobile phone coverage at Valleybrook, we find that this is a bit of a Marmite issue with our guests (they either Love it or Hate it). For those guests where it is essential to stay in contact with their friends/relatives while in their accommodation, there is the option of having a telephone (with its own dedicated number) installed.
We are glad the birthday celebrations were a great success and are delighted that you are recommending us to your friends and family.

The overall cleanliness of our Lodge was outstanding and the little touches like supplying Washing up liquid, bags for recycling Iron Ironing board and hairdyer just made our stay that little bit easier, The cream tea on arrival with the addition of a doggy treat for Charlie our Westie made us feel really welcome, the location was lovely and quiet but not too far away from all the major places to visit whilst in Cornwall, sitting on the porch eating breakfast of a morning and being visited by 2 cheeky squirrels was quite charming, and the hosts Brian and Denise and Keith were lovely, I would highly recommend this accomodation.
