“Chalet very good”
Reviewed 27 June 2017 for a stay in June 2017

people found this review helpful

The chalet -Woodland Retreat- was very good. It was well kitted out and very clean, Chris the owner certainly looks after the chalet really well
Regular buses into St Ives etc. from the holiday village, check the facilities on the site before buying a pass to use them, the changing rooms in the swimming pool are not very good.
We had to buy the pass - (£12 each) before we could view the facilities, because the chalet is privately owned. Several days into the holiday I asked for a refund as we had not used the facilities, but was refused. We were given several reasons as to why we could not be refunded.
The manager told me it was normal procedure to sell guests passes before they could view the facilities, and refunds would not be given if they did not use them?
There is no system in place to show the passes are being used.

I'm afraid the site policy on passes is completely out of my control and hope this is the only reason I've been given my worse rating so far.
I'd like to thank Linda for respecting my place and keeping it clean and tidy and the very positive remarks left in my visitors book and hope this hasn't deterred her from staying in the future.

Staying in Woodland retreat cottage was an amazing experience. The cottage itself is cosy and warm. Environment is very peaceful and right next to a wonderful walking path.
St Ives and Hayle are very close. Our particular favourite was Paradise park, literally a few minutes away by car.
Chris the owner was very helpful.

“Great Easter break”
Reviewed 9 April 2017 for a stay in April 2017

We had a fabulous stay. Chris couldn't have been a more helpful and accommodating host. The lodge is so comfortable and cosy with everything you need. We didn't use the entertainment or bar on site but we made good use of the pool. Children loved it and contrary to some reviews it was pleasantly warm! A great base to explore and so convenient for St Ives. Would love to stay again.
