Sylvan View, Fowey, South Cornwall
Sylvan View lodge is a charming, secluded log cabin that looks out over the World Heritage Site of the Luxulyan Valley.
It has been lovingly finished to combine the rustic ambience of a log cabin retreat, with state of the art amenities. Cosy and welcoming, it is an idyllic place for a rural retreat.
Guests can enjoy an abundance of walking trails through the traditional broadleaf woodland and along the waterside right on the doorstep. The lodge is a perfect base from which to explore this rural haven.
Sylvan View lodge accommodation
The lodge consists of one king-sized sleeping space in the eaves, approached up a permanent wooden ladder. Please note that there is reduced head space. The bathroom is downstairs and has a shower and WC.
The lounge/dining area is cosy and bright, with a TV, DVD player, Freeview, hi-fi and woodburner. This comfortable space is great to curl up in on chillier evenings, or when the weather is less than ideal.
The well-equipped kitchen has a cooker, a fridge/freezer and microwave.
Large French doors mean that guests can admire the view from the comfort of the sofa if it’s not quite sunny enough to venture outside. The doors lead onto a large decked area and garden, complete with BBQ. Which is wonderful for some al fresco drinks or dinner, basking in the tranquil greenery of the surroundings.
Please note that the first basket of logs is provided on arrival. The owners harvest their own logs and sell these for £5 per bag. Only wood supplied on-site can be used in the log burner.
There is secure parking, with space for one car, located a short, level walk from the cabin.
Bed linen, towels, electricity and gas are all included in the rent.
Up to two dogs are welcome, charged at £20 per dog for up to 7 nights, £40 for up to 14 nights, and an additional £20 for every week/part week thereafter.
The nearest beach is three miles away, and the nearest pub just one mile.
