Stayed at The Brambles for a midweek break in late July. 2 adults and 2 kids.
Plenty of room as the bungalow actually sleeps 6, however we booked this as it was around the same price as 2 bedroomed properties we were looking at and we wanted a little more space. This was ideal.
Had no issues with cleanliness as mentioned in previous reviews. In fact, the place was spotless. There was a slight 'musty' smell we noticed when we first arrived, however, we went out for the day and left the windows open and upon returning the smell wasn't noticeable.
However, the patio furniture could do with replacing as it just looks very dated.
Best thing about this place is the location. It is set in a lovely peaceful site just outside of Liskeard and right next to Bodmin Moor. Very quiet and peaceful which is exactly what we wanted. (Can't stand noisy amusement arcades and fast food outlets!).
There is a pub on the site, though it was only open on the evenings. Didn't eat there but the food looked good. Beer was very nice and a good selection.
It is also an ideal base for exploring Cornwall. We went to a different place every day, although Looe, which is about a 15 minute drive away, was our favourite. (Highly recommend 'Sarah's Pasty Shop'!).
All-in-all, we really liked this place. It won't be everyone's cup of tea, perhaps too quite for some or not 'modern' enough for others. However, for us, it was perfect, and I have no complaints for the price we paid for a mid-week break in school holiday time.
Have just come back from one week at the Brambles. My husband and i arrived first, on the Saturday, and my daughter and her family on the next day.
When we arrived we were astounded by the smell of damp. It was so bad in the wardrobe that i wouldnt put my clothes in there till late evening as had sprayed the wardrobe first. The smell was in the cutlery drawers and was so
strong. There was damp on the walls and under the beds in the third bedroom there were sweet papers and a book. So obviously not cleaned before we came, under there!!!! Needless to say we left under the bed as had done enough cleaning.
My husband spent a lot of time cleaning before our daughter and family got there.
The site; itself was lovely and laid out nice. If we were in another "clean" bungalow i would have no hesitation in recommending the place. I have photos which we took to confirm this. My husband had to clean the hair out of the shower as the water didnt go down.
Sorry Richard but felt the need to point these things out.
Very nice convenient ,Enjoyed, good place,Highly recommended, big bungalow , wonderful location , great communication
We loved our stay at The Brambles, 2 adults, 2 teenagers and 2 young children, and all had a lovely stay. Bungalow was well maintained, clean, stocked with extras such as DVDs and games and with a new bathroom/shower.
Location is 5 mins outside Liskeard which is perfect for places like Looe, Polpero, Eden Project and even Plymouth.
We could not give this place a better review - Perfect!
After reading the previous review I was a bit dubious about staying, but I can honestly say the place was spotless. The new bathroom is lovely. The Brambles had everything we needed. The site is in a really good location and is really quiet. We only had a short stay this time but we are planning to come back later in the year for a longer stay.
