Take a winter break in Cornwall

1st November 2017

The summer in North Cornwall is glorious but there’s so much else going on throughout the year that you’d be really missing out if you only came to see us between June and August.

Local food and local bands on the menu at our new-look restaurant

25th September 2017

At Luxury Lodge Estates we love celebrating the very best of everything the local area has to offer across all our resorts.

Lake District awarded Unesco World Heritage Site status

25th September 2017

At Whitbarrow, we always knew we were surrounded by some quite remarkable countryside and spectacular scenery.
