Stunning location
6 of us split across a pod and the lodge for a hen party weekend. What a beautiful place. The pods are so warm and cozy. The lakes are beautiful. The lodge is great for games and a quiet party. Accommodation and grounds beautifully maintained. Close to a big Asda. Pod kitchen comes with everything you might need (kettle toaster, small oven, cheese grater etc) and there's a communal microwave, iron etc too. Each pod has a barbecue and firepit, you can buy logs etc on site. Only negative comments are that the pods could do with a proper mirror even if it's a free standing one like in the lodge bedroom. Lighting not good enough to do make up in the tiny bathroom mirror. And I wake when it gets light. The blackout blinds let light in round the sides - by 6am it was light enough in the pod to crochet even with them closed. Bring an eye mask if light wakes you. Aside from the morning light I'd choose to stay here over a hotel or B&B anyday.

Outstanding!
Honestly this was hands down the best 2 nights away I’ve had in a long time! I booked this for my Fiancé’s birthday and our 2 year anniversary....cannot fault any of it! The breakfast hamper was perfect, even the champagne and flowers I paid a little extra for to surprise her made it even better! It’s so peaceful and so relaxing, and surprisingly not too secluded to order a taxi into Falmouth! Jason and Selina made us feel very welcome, I am so happy I found Trecombe Lakes! The 5 hour drive was 100% worth it and we will definitely be returning very soon! Thank you so much!

Beatiful getaway in a stunning pod!
We've just returned from a long weekend spent at Trecombe Lakes...what a an amazing find! Set in a beautiful location of lakes and hills, our pod had everything we coukd have needed for both a sunny and (classicly british) rainy day. We were particularly pleased to find charcoal (paid by using an honesty box) which made using our private smoky joe bbq super easy for a inpromptu bbq! Will definitely be returning in the summer for a week next time, thankyou Selina and Jason!

Peaceful place
1st glamping experience ever.... didn't quite know what to expect. The place is tucked away in the countryside near falmouth and the first task was to find our pod... a really well laid out and maintained site with each pod in its own grounds... we stayed in starling which was the closest to the lakes and it was so well equipped we really didn't need to bring half the stuff we loaded into the car. Towels... cleaning items... all you really need to bring is your clothes and some food! Was concerned how the money we paid would stack up against a caravan park with entertainment and stuff, but was more than pleased with what we paid for, nature and quality of accommodation definitely was worth it. So cosy in what turned out to be a rainy week. The real stars though are the lakes. So brilliantly set up with discoveries around every corner from places to sit, but and frog havens, boats. We saw owls, herons, fish. So peaceful! Loved the feeling of freedom that is created there with no TV or cars buzzing around. Easy to get into town and all the wonderful history in that part of the world. Loved the experience. Thank you 🤗🐿🐁🦆🐟🦋🐞🌲🍂

Still here and loving it..
As I write this I’m sitting on the terrace on the luxury lodge cooking our last dinner on the barbie listening to the peace and quiet of the site. We have fired up the Swedish bath for a dip later to warm up after a day down on swan pool Beach. We never normally come to Falmouth, sticking to the usual St. Ives, Croyde, woolcombe, and I have to say we love it here. Dinner in Pandora’s Inn on the slip way or brunch in Potager cafe are memorable foodie spots. We even managed to get an outdoor theatre for the kids at the lovely trebar Gardens. The maritime museum is great for young children with treasure hunts and sword making activities. But back to Trecombe, we loved the site nestled in the Cornish landscape, not far from the beach,town or wherever we wanted to go, views of the lake and fire pits to roast marshmallows on. Great use of space inside with a mezzanine for older children to sleep on. We put our two younger kids one on the sofa bed and other on her camping bed in the living room while we still had access out to the outside space via our bedroom, felt like we were on holiday alone when they went to sleep !!!

Absolutely Amazing, one of our best stays ever!
This was our first time clamping and having travelled most of the world and staying in everything from 1-5 star places this has been one of out top 5 stays ever. The setting is peaceful and the pods are spacious and comfortable. We traveled with another family and the other pods had families as well, so all the kids played. It's a great location for families as there is lots to do, from rowing on the lake to the playground. The pods are comfortable, private bathrooms and come with 1 double bed and 2 singles. There is a fridge and small cooker/oven, however in the main lodge there is a larger fridge for all to share. Met Jason and Selina the owners there and they were amazing, giving us tips, sitting down and drinking coffee with us. As I said before, top 5 stay ever and we will be back!

What a Wonderful Experience had by all !
Wow..... what a wonderful place to be. The children loved every space. Trecombe Lakes had everything we wanted and more besides. The children just loved the outside play area and the play room.... keeping them active everyday. The Lodge is a great location over looking the lake. A nice quite spot, not too sunny and able to chill. Everyone loved the Hot-Tub on the balcony, all you have to do is lay back & enjoy! Jason & Selina are fantastic. They ensured everything was in place, all we had to do was bring the children and our own food. Best place ever Thank you Jason & Selina

Lodging by the lakes
This weekend my husband and I took our adult children away for the weekend. We had stayed in the pods at Trecombe Lakes last year and were so impressed we decided to try the new lodge this year. I can assure you we weren’t disappointed. It is everything you could want for a holiday in the UK. The lodge is positioned slightly away from the pods, next to a lake. I am writing this sitting on the decking by the water and I have to say it is idillic. The lodge sleeps up to 6 people. The double bedroom is a good size, the bed is wonderfully comfortable and there is plenty of storage. The mezzanine sleeping area is great for sleeping in, but the ceiling is low so send your smaller ones up there (not too small though as it is quite high up). We put the 18 year olds up there and they say that it was very comfy and cosy. The sofa bed in the living room area is also a corner sofa and fulfils it’s purpose. The kitchen is a small galley kitchen and the owners have really thought through and provided everything you could need - including a decent frying pan, a teapot, cafetière, kettle and toaster. There is a table and chairs and a television in the living room area together with a log burner in the corner. We didn’t use any of these as the weather has been so gorgeous we have been outside but it really feels like this would be a snug warm place on a cold autumn night. The decking outside is large and adjacent to the lake. We have sat outside both evenings and used the firepit/ barbecue. We invited friends staying locally to join us for one evening and had 11 sitting around the deck without it felling overcrowded. The Swedish hot bath fits 2 adults comfortably and gets very hot (start heating it early though). The shower room is stocked with towels and the shower is good. All in all I can’t think of anything missing from the setup. We will be back again next year
