Find out everything you need about 3 Southern Place in Dobwalls, Cornwall and whether this holiday rental is right for you.
This state of the art lodge sits in a tailor-made holiday park in a hidden part of Cornwall and is ideal for a couple looking for some quality time together in a rural retreat, along with two well behaved four-legged friends.
It has its private sky deck with garden furniture to fully enjoy the earth and heavens, a private hot tub and is also within easy walking distance of a lovely Cornish village with access to loads of great attractions.
Walk the local hills and rivers, spend time in Liskeard, take in Golitha Falls on the winding River Fowey, explore Bodmin Moor and visit one of the many coastal towns all around.
All ground floor, sleeping two in a super king-size double bedroom, shower room with walk-in shower, wash hand basin and WC.
Open plan living, dining and kitchen area, stylishly furnished and carpeted throughout, with coffee table and hi-tech flat screen tv. Indoor hot tub, which doubles as a jacuzzi and spa room, so no worrying about the weather.
There’s a private cinema room and a decked area with a sky deck on the roof to enjoy the sunset without worrying about other guests on the site or any passers-by. There is also off-road parking for one car.
There is a pub and restaurant on this resort’s sister site, about a 15-minute drive away, where you’ll be welcome, including the dogs. However, a much closer watering hole is just a ten-minute walk away in Dobwalls village, where you can plan the day ahead. This hilly part of Cornwall is also crisscrossed with rivers, especially the River Fowey. Take the dogs on a riverside walk to Two Waters Foot, or head east into Liskeard, which has plenty of eateries and watering holes to enjoy.
Take a short drive north to Bodmin Moor, an untouched upland with Jamaica Inn at its heart, to rest after exploring the moorland. Don’t miss The Cheesewring, aka Stowe’s Hill, a natural rock formation which looks very man-made. For real stone circles, head west across the moor to Stripple Stones and Trippet Stone Circle. Drive west from the Moor to Padstow, the fishing village made famous by Rick Stein, while surfers can get their fill of the beaches springing up around Newquay.
Visit the Eden Project, the groundbreaking ecological centre with a rainforest biodome, visitor centre and even an ice rink. The South West Coast Path takes you to Polruan and Polperro for a peaceful walk along the coast, where you and the dogs can just enjoy the sea air and magnificent views. For a city experience, Plymouth is a short train journey or drive from Liskeard and has superb attractions around the Barbican, including all the culture, food, drink and shopping you could want.
For a couple with one or two dogs along to enjoy the experience, this is a holiday lodge like no other. There’s pampering in the hot tub and sauna to your own private cinema. People and dogs will love the country walks all around, starting outside the site, with a ten-minute stroll into Dobwalls, surrounded by the hills of the Fowey Valley. Cornish hospitality begins here, and there’s plenty more of it in the charming town of Liskeard, which also has plenty of shops and a train station to help you explore southern Cornwall.
For a wild getaway, Bodmin Moor is a must. Inspiration for Daphne Du Maurier and Poldark, you’ll soon forget the stresses of modern life. Head west for the world-famous seafood cuisine and atmosphere of Padstow and explore the hidden coves on the Atlantic coast, which surfers love so much. The Eden Project has lots to enjoy for humans for something more thought-provoking, all within a dog-friendly site.
Enjoy more earthly pursuits in thriving Plymouth or some of the quietest and most scenic walks anywhere, visiting the lovely fishing villages on the south Cornwall coast. This lodge lets you mix a rural retreat with whatever takes your fancy for an extraordinary Cornish holiday. isThe indoor
