Not the first time I have stayed here. It is nice to have somewhere that is a home away from home. Well appointed and within easy reach of everything. Staff are very accommodating and the units are always in top notch condition. Love my time there for the country peace and the stunning views. Great food at the Cafe Azure,...

Lovely quiet stay in a beautifully presented, clean & spacious cottage. Staff friendly and helpful, yet totally respectful of privacy. Gorgeous, well-kept grounds. A wonderful spot for exploring the breath-taking scenery of Cornwall. The Royal Oak at nearby Perranwell Station serves super food and is everything a local pub should be.

This is the second time we have stayed at the Valley and by chance the same property. The houses are in a quiet secluded woodland valley. The houses are well equipped and furnished. Its just very comfortable. There is an onsite swimming pool and restaurant but there are also many good eating places around

Thank you for taking the time to leave your comments. Next time you come you could try the same style of cottage, a Villa Gallery, but with a private hot tub for that extra luxury and relaxation or maybe try a Haven or Beacon for a change? Look forward to seeing you again soon. Julie

We have just returned from the most wonderful week at The Valley. It was everything we expected and more. The setting is perfect for visiting both the north and south coasts and there are so many interesting places within a short drive.

We liked the look of the place from the beginning after having decided to holiday in cornwall and not bad reviews in tripadvisor.
