Nuthatch Lodge, Looe, South Cornwall
Nuthatch Lodge is a well-appointed property that nestles in a peaceful, rural spot just a few minutes from the A38 that links Bodmin to Plymouth and Launceston. Despite its proximity to one of Cornwall’s main roads, its setting is lovely and quiet, making it a perfect base for a rural retreat spent exploring this stunning county.
Set right on the edge of dramatic Bodmin Moor, the lodge boasts some spectacular views. Welcoming and comfortable, it is an idyllic way to take some time out from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Best of all, it has its own outside decking area, where guests can sit and admire the majestic views and soak up the tranquil surroundings.
Nuthatch Lodge accommodation

Patio doors mean that guests can enjoy the lovely views from the comfort of the sofas if it’s a little chilly outside. The doors lead onto a furnished decked area, complete with BBQ. A real suntrap, the decking is a great spot for a morning coffee as you plan the day’s activities, or an al fresco cocktail or two after a busy day spent exploring.
General amenities include: a hob, microwave, fridge and access to a washing machine and freezer within the owner’s home. Bed linen, towels, electricity and central heating are all included in the rent. There is secure parking. No smoking and no pets, please.
