Lamellen Lodge is situated about a mile from St Tudy a quaint Cornish village, the church around which the village was built was first constructed in the 6th century and then rebuilt in the 11th, 15th and latterly 19th centuries, the village has been built around the original Celtic circular raised graveyard - known locally as "God's Acre!" St Tudy is believed to be the birthplace of Captain Bligh of the "Mutiny on the Bounty" fame! The St Tudy Inn (formerly the Cornish Arms) will welcome you in for a refreshing drink, a hearty meal or both!
Wadebridge was originally a market town. It has an amazing 15th century bridge with 17 arches over the River Camel, which is definitely worth a visit. It is said the bridge was built on wool as this was how the wealthy landowners in the area made their money. From the day the bridge was built the town became known as Wadebridge. The Royal Cornwall Show ground at Wadebridge hosts the county show every June, come rain or shine, opened each year by a member of the Royal Family. Cornish Farmers have had to diversify in recent years and so has the show, but they have kept their traditional roots with steam engines being shown next to the shiny new high-tech tractors. It's not every day you get to see formation JCB digger dancing in the main ring.
Both Wadebridge and nearby Camelford are centrally located in order to explore the nearby hills and moors. Wadebridge is the perfect base, being the half way point, from which to discover the Camel Trail, a walk and cycle track following the old railway route from Bodmin to Padstow. There is wonderful scenery and plenty of wildlife, including fantastic sightings of wading birds to see on this serene trail and bikes can be hired from Bodmin, Wadebridge or Padstow. From Padstow you could take a boat trip across the Camel Estuary to Rock, and lounge on the beautiful beach that stretches all the way around to Daymer Bay. The National Lobster Hatchery neighbours Rick Steins empire in Padstow.
The National Trust have three properties nearby, Lanhydrock House, Trerice and Carnewas and the dramatic cliffs and beach at Bedruthan Steps. Or if you fancy something different try a tour around the Camel Valley Vineyard, Cornish Wine has been growing in stature around the world and their sparkling wines are truly stunning, having picked up lots of international awards, go for a tasting you will not be disappointed!
Bodmin Moor is a couple of miles away to the East and is dominated by large granite tors which tower over sweeping expanses of moorland. Bodmin Moor has engendered fear and awe throughout history and hence provided inspiration for writers, poets and sculptors. Standing stones, burial chambers, clapper bridges cottages and farms across the moor give a hint of the 4000 years of human development ever since Bronze Age farmers first arrived.
Port Isaac is about 4 miles to the North West and this has recently been the base of filming for "Doc Martin" with Martin Clunes, there are a good selection of cafes shops and pubs. Further up the coast there are all of the golden beaches and coves between Polzeath and Tintagel with some of the best surf in Europe.
Bodmin lies a few miles to South West and has a large selection of supermarkets, shops and restaurants.
Guest from Birmingham stayed for 7 nights.
Easy to find but because of it's location on busy main road this really spoilt being able to enjoy the beautiful garden & patio area due to traffic noise. Large secure garden great for dogs & lovely grounds up track to explore away from traffic noise. House itself immaculate & very well equipped but seemed to be problem with hot water making screaching noises which was quite annoying when trying to shower & cold water was cloudy which was bit odd. Could do with larger sofa to relax on as 2 seater sofa not very comfy & would also help to leave basic instructions on operating t.v./wifi/freeview box/oven/microwave etc. A little gate & steps to river from garden would be perfect for paddling on hot days as an addition. Great place to stay if you only want a base but not ideal for those seeking peace & quiet to relax in due to it's proximity to main road. Don't forget to pull blind down whilst in bathroom as passing cars can literally see inside as driving past! Lol
Thank you for taking the time to write a review. We will certainly ask the plumber to check the noise associated with the hot water - the cloudiness of the cold water is just due to bubbles from the pressure. The main road is noisy I'm afraid but hopefully you didn't hear this inside the house due to the thickness of the old stone walls. The river is an SSI - so we are not able to provide access for paddling sadly. And the bathroom is reasonably well screened from the road by shrubbery but there is a blind too!
Guest from Honiton stayed for 7 nights.
As we said in the guest book we had a lovely week here was very clean . A big thank you to the bottle of wine & milk a nice touch. Thank you.
Thank you for your review of Lamellen Lodge. We are pleased you enjoyed your week at the Lodge and hope to see you again.
Guest from Thursley stayed for 7 nights.
This is our second stay at the cottage, we really like this place. They have done the cottage up over the winter and the changes have much improved the cottage. It's a fantastic place with a lovely kitchen and great bedrooms and the garden is great too!
So pleased you enjoyed your return stay at the Lodge and liked the improvements we've made over the winter. Hope to see you again!
Guest from Felixstowe stayed for 7 nights.
We had a lovely stay. The lodge had everything we needed . It was ideally placed for us to visit many different places. There are plenty of nice pubs close by that do excellent food, if you dont want to cook for yourselves.
Guest from Thursley stayed for 7 nights.
We loved this cottage, and would definitely go back. The amenities were great and the beds were very comfy. My only criticism is that the washing machine smelt(it could do with a clean!) And there were no cloths or cleaning products in the bathroom. Overall a wonderful cottage and lovely location.
Guest from Birmingham stayed for 7 nights.
The pictures on the website don't actually do this place justice. On a sunny day it is fabulous-surrounded by trees and right by the river. The A39 is a bit noisy but not too bad and once you are inside the house you can't hear the traffic because the walls are really thick which also makes the house quite cosy. The bathroom was a bit old fashioned (carpeted) but it was clean enough. The lodge was full of character and Victorian period features and overall it was a lovely place to stay in for a week.
Thank you for taking the time to write a review of the Lodge and we're pleased you enjoyed your stay at the Lodge and found it cosy. We are planning to do some refurbishment this winter so hope you might visit us again next year to see the changes.
Guest from East Barnet stayed for 7 nights.
A lovely cottage, very clean and well equipped. The only down side is that it is on quite a busy road which you don't hear from in the house but you do in the garden.
Guest from Llanelli stayed for 14 nights.
Labelled Lodge is a great place to stay, it is equipped with everything you need for a great holiday. The Lodge is very comfortable and is versatile in its sleeping arrangements. The kitchen is very well equipped enabling you to cater for yourself very adequately. The grounds are amazing very spacious with plenty of options for eating and relaxing outside, lovely walks. The location is ideal being next to the A39 you can get to the local beaches and harbours easily. Wadebridge is only 10 minutes away with everything you need. We had a surfing holiday so Polzeath, Tryarnon, Constatine beaches were within 25 minutes drive. Highly recommended.
Thank you for taking the time to write a review of the Lodge and we're so pleased you enjoyed your time there and found it comfortable and well equipped. We hope you might come and stay again sometime.
Guest from Plymouth stayed for 7 nights.
We have stayed at this lodge many times now and love it. Everything is perfect for us and we would love to buy the lodge. Lara ensures that its clean and tidy upon arrival and is only a phone call away if required. This place is a little out of the way so a car is definitely required but we like this aspect The main bedroom bed is probably one of the best beds we have ever slept in, kitchen is not missing a single item so you feel right at home. Only comment is if you need fast internet to keep techno kids happy this is not the place fro you, in this day and age its slow, especially if I am having a working stay, but for general "google to see where to go" its more than adequate. I cannot recommend this place enough! Now run by Cornwalls Cottages you can book knowing you have a professional agent behind you too
Thank you for your review of Lamellen Lodge, we're pleased you enjoyed your stay. I'm afraid the internet connection is limited due to the location but it is something we continue to work on! We hope we might see you again.
