Stonerush Lakes is a luxury holiday park nestled just seven miles from Polperro and Fowey in south east Cornwall. The unspoilt agricultural grounds are picturesque, with a stunning lake at the heart of the park. It’s a hotspot for many of Cornwall’s best loved species of wildlife, including deer, geese and freshwater fish.
DOGSCLOSURE: We were gifted a complimentary stay at Stonerush Lakes in exchange for this blogpost.
Spread over 28 acres, there are plenty of one, two and three bedroom detached holiday lodges to choose from, a large proportion of which are dog friendly. Up to two dogs can stay at Stonerush Lakes, which is perfect for families with multiple dogs. The lodges are peaceful and tranquil, finished to a high standard both inside and out. Whether you choose a lakeside lodge or decide to stay in the heart of the valley, the views will always be incredible!
The dogs and I stayed at 3 Valley View, a family friendly, contemporary lodge towards the back of the estate. Finished with laminate flooring throughout (aside from the bedrooms, which are carpeted) made for easy cleaning after muddy walks. I really appreciated how easy it was to shut off sections of the lodge, such as the bedrooms, when the dogs were wet. There was plenty of space for them in the open plan living area to dry off after our walks.
Golitha Falls is one of our favourite places to walk in south east Cornwall. It would have been rude not to make the 20minute drive while we were staying at Stonerush Lakes. Their sister site, Southern Halt, is on the way too – another luxury dog friendly rural escape. We also visited Lantic Bay for the first time during our stay. It was a bit of a scramble down to the beach but the unspoilt coastline was definitely worth it!
The lodges at Stonerush Lakes are equipped with all the modern kitchen facilities. There’s even a dishwasher and utensils provided, making self-catering a breeze. Alternatively, there’s also a restaurant and bar onsite, serving a variety of hearty meals throughout the year, as well as offering a takeaway service to guests.
The master bedroom was spacious and airy, with floor to ceiling windows looking out onto the private deck. There was more than enough space to fit Woody’s crate inside – something we always travel with, as otherwise he has a tendency to jump on the bed in the middle of the night!
The outside space wasn’t completely secure, as it was missing a gate. However Woody and Hen always stayed within my view. We enjoyed taking in the views together each morning, while sipping on Cornish Tea. There was also a hottub sunk into the decking, which proved to be the perfect place to unwind after a hard day’s adventuring with the dogs!
