The Valley Cornwall

Bissoe Road Carnon Downs Truro Cornwall TR3 6LQ 01872 862 194

We say

The great thing about The Valley is that it feels like the middle of nowhere, yet you're right outside Falmouth and within easy striking distance of loads of other places in Cornwall, whether it's St Ives of Newquay. It's the perfect place to stay with young children – a large complex of mostly two- and three-bed self-catering cottage properties in all manner of styles, all ultra-clean, nicely furnished and well-equipped with kitchens with all mod cons,  free wifi and lots of books and games – and some cottages are dog-friendly too. The complex itself encompasses a fab restaurant, two swimming pools (one outdoor, one indoor), a spa and fitness facilities and tennis and squash courts – all in a lovely peaceful location. They also do all sorts of packages, including cycling holidays, and provide lots of pre-bookable extras, ranging from daily papers to gourmet takeaways and packed lunches.

Magical! ★★★★★

Holidays should all be about fun and spending time with the family. Yet, so often, it can be the same routine just in a different place. Not so at The Valley! We've stayed there several times (a couple of times in a Villa Gallery style and more often in a Haven one). You can cook in your own fabulous kitchen or stroll down to the wonderful restaurant (especially good to arrive early for young ones to eat and then let them place with the toy boxes the staff provide and have a grown up dinner a little later). It's wonderfully peaceful but so close to Truro and Falmouth. It really lives up to its 5 star rating. Can't wait to go back.
