Stonerush Lakes sprawls over 28 blissful acres, and its contemporary lodges nestle so quietly into the landscape that they’re almost hidden from view. You can choose whether to enjoy panoramic views across the lake from your floor to ceiling windows or the sweeping sight of Cornwall’s countryside – and then there are the lodges so close to the lake that you’ll almost be able to touch the water…
All of the lodges have their own private hot tub for you to relax in and enjoy. Some of the lodges are also dog friendly, so no need to leave your four legged friend at home.
If you decide that you'd rather not cook in the lodges' luxury kitchen, the estate’s restaurant – The Old Mill - not only serves the kind of meals that’ll have you penning the recipes down on your napkin, but the lakeside seating and classical interior make it a special place to dine at any time of day.
Stonerush Lakes is just 2 miles from the village of Lanreath, and if you’re feeling adventurous you can board the Bodinnick Ferry and head to Fowey 7 miles away. Once home to Daphne du Maurier, this whitewashed little fishing town has drawn some of the country’s most successful writers, and if you do one thing while you’re there make sure you take a boat trip along the Fowey estuary – this is the very landscape that inspired Kenneth Grahame to dream up the Wind in the Willows tales.
If you have a hankering to experience real Cornwall in all its glory (we’re talking working harbours, brightly coloured cottages and pubs where you’ll feel like an old friend), Stonerush Lakes is within easy reach of some of the county’s most unspoilt and unchanged resorts.
