Guests have said in their reviews: 'there is everything you need for the ideal family break'
Both are brand new decorated throughout and Villa 8 has a brand new kitchen and Woodview a brand new bathroom, with very high quality fittings, super shower and new floor and floor to ceiling wall tiling.
The chalet is furnished comfortably in order that families can relax knowing everything they need is provided.
Woodview and Villa 8, which is only a few doors away, are available separately or together to allow for more flexibility in booking numbers, anything between two to eight possibly ten. If you want to go on a family holiday with friends or relatives they are close by whilst allowing you to have your own space and independence.
I received this review from a lady that stayed in the beginning of July.
'From start to finish the booking of Woodview was one of better moments.
Lovely lady to deal with as it was very last minute and I was lucky enough to snatch up this property which had become available unexpectedly.
We arrived in lovely sunshine and promptly grabbed a cider from the hotel - friendly staff & beautiful surroundings. The pool looked very inviting but we didn't get to try it out. We were way too busy exploring the stunning area over the next few days.
The villa was very clean and modern. It has everything you could wish. Well stocked cupboards with all (and more) the necessities. The bathroom seemed very new and the bedrooms cosy and comfortable.
A fab little base to explore Tintagel, Boscastle, Bude, Padstow and many more. Hidden coves aplenty if you don't mind a little trek.
I would recommend the villa to many - and I will definately return'
And then we received this
'The best holiday ever!" said my 8 yr old son and I have to agree with him. Woodview was exactly as depicted in the pictures and was comfortable, clean and felt slightly luxurious! The beds were comfortable and both boys slept later than they normally do at home. The villa is ideally placed to explore the North Coast of Cornwall and there were so many beaches close by that we were spoilt for choice. The hotel grounds were lush and quiet and the play areas for the boys let them play safely. The hotel outdoor pool was beautiful but, being unheated, rather bracing!! My youngest (2 1/2 yrs) cried when we had to leave and keeps talking about when he goes back to his holiday home. We will definitely be back next year!! Thank you Gillian for all the information you sent us prior to the holiday and for all the information available in the villa'
We are very pleased we are doing the right things and thank her very much for taking the time and trouble to get back to us. We value our customers and hope we become friends xxxxx.
If a week is booked please check the calendar for the other property, it might well be available!!
There are discounts for loyalty and returning customers and early bird discounts for those booking early in the year, also as mentioned if both properties are booked at the same time.
Both chalets are professionally cleaned after every booking.
We hear from English customers far and wide throughout our country and also overseas from:
Germany, America, Canada and Holland which is also exciting.
We received a number of excellent reviews with one particularly fantastic review that stood out from a family that stayed in June 2014. It is brilliant to know we are on the right track,looking after our customers, who we value as not just that, but as friends, saying service, directions cleanliness of bathroom/place,utensils, ease of finding key, comfort and cleanliness of bed all received a resounding 5 out of 5!!!!! That is our sole aim, to ensure you have a brilliant holiday at an excellent price. We are fantastic value for money, off peak working out at £10 a night per person for four, comparative to Youth Hostels but with a lot more comfort, privacy and facilities.
We offer all the advantages of camping, the ability to throw open a door, smell the grass, feel the breeze on your cheek, without any of the disadvantages, cold, wet, tent material touching your nose, not being able to walk for the first few hours while hips adjust.
I like nothing more than to sit outside having a lovely meal, enjoying good company, a glass of wine, a cream tea, reading, painting or planning the next excursion. Children can play safely without worrying about them and ducks and rabbits are a common sight.
There is the exclusive use of open adult and children swimming pools,brand new tarmac tennis courts, swings, sand pit, adventure climbing frames, grounds to explore, glorious fauna depending upon the time of year, for example I love the rhododendrons, with beautiful Cornish lanes lined with bluebells and foxgloves leading to the grounds. A laundrette if required and nearby pub/hotel for quick meals or more sophisticated dining.
A review actually described Lanteglos as 'a place of tranquility' a haven for rest and peace endorsing what we already know, Lanteglos is lovely, being quiet and peaceful. Of course people might want music, and pubs, but not where they sleep or want to switch off, and all of those things, if you want are available in Cornwall and not too far afield as Lanteglos is ideally centrally located. Golfing is very nearby and also stables for riding. You can have the best of all worlds and cater for young and older.
Many owners do not let their properties allowing the further benefit of being able to enjoy the quiet and seclusion in private gardens and grounds.
HOME AWAY FROM HOME!!!
