Hidden away, on the outskirts of Falmouth, along the winding Cornish lanes is Trecombe lakes. Trecombe lakes was established back in 2012 and is 9 acres of beautiful woodlands and lakes largely untouched and deliberately designed to be inviting to both humans and wildlife. Upon arriving I was blown away by how beautiful the lodge was. It was perched right on the edge of the lake that was brimming with fish and had some very happy ducks swimming around.Walking up on to the decking area you get the instant smell of the wood from the lodge. Sat in prime place on the deck there was the Swedish wood-fired two person bath. It looked so inviting, however, it needed to be lit but that was fine as there was so much to enjoy beforehand. The deck also had blankets to wrap yourself up in and drink in the nature all around.Beaming with an ear-to-ear smile we hadn’t even gone inside. The lodge felt great to just stand in. We both stood there for a moment and enjoyed it. The light, bright, minimal Scandinavian feel matched its surroundings brilliantly.Through the kitchen and in to the bedroom there was our bed for the night. With broad views of the lakes it was going to be so nice to sit in bed with a coffee and wake up slow. I pulled the doors fully open, crashed out on the (very comfy) bed and just lay there without any distractions and listened to all the sounds of nature, it was sooooo peaceful. It was blissAfter a while of just relaxing it was time to start the fires in the bath and log burner. There were clear instructions left along with wood and all the kit for lighting the fires.
The lodge consists of one spacious double bedroom a second double on the mezzanine above the living room and another pull-out sofa bed. Trecombe lakes have really thought of everything to make your stay as enjoyable as possible from under floor heating through to board games and even some scones, cream and jam to enjoy a Cornish tea.
The kitchen had everything you could possibly need and we were really impressed with the eco features of the lodge. There were recycling bins and ecover products for you to use throughout your stay.
That evening we spent our time in the Swedish bath watching the stars come up and listening to the sounds of all the wildlife. a perfect way to unwind, it really felt as if we were miles away from home.We woke nice and early, pushed the doors back open again and enjoyed that cup of coffee in bed whilst looking out across the lakes like we had envisaged. We saw ducks, a friendly heron walking around and even had a visit from an inquisitive squirrel on the decking. We enjoyed a lovely stroll around the lakes walking through patches of bluebells and stopping to have a go on the wooden swing.There are also clamping pods if you prefer not to stay in one of the lodges, they have 2 bedrooms and their own little BBQ and garden area.
you to all the staff at Trecombe Lake for making our stay so enjoyable
