Stonerush Lakes sprawls over 28 blissful acres, and its contemporary lodges nestle so quietly into the landscape that they’re almost hidden from view. Speaking of views, choose whether to enjoy panoramic views across the lake from your floor to ceiling windows or the sweeping sight of Cornwall’s countryside – and then there are the lodges so close to the lake that you’ll almost be able to touch the water…
Whatever your idea of an idyllic retreat you’ll find it, and no matter which you settle into you’ll enjoy luxury features such as solid timber work surfaces that make cooking a pleasure once more, private decking areas to help you enjoy that sunny Cornish weather and recessed down lighting that encourage relaxation.
If you’ve a hankering to experience real Cornwall in all its glory (we’re talking working harbours, brightly coloured cottages and pubs where you’ll feel like an old friend), Stonerush Lakes is within easy reach of some of the county’s most unspoilt and unchanged resorts. The village of Lanreath and historic Fowey - the home of the late Daphne du Maurier – are both within easy reach.
Stonerush Lakes is part of the Charteroak family of resorts, which also includes Indio Lake, Saxon Maybank and Southern Halt.
Hot tub Heaven
If you can’t enjoy a little luxury during a rural retreat then when can you? Our Stonerush Lakes lodges have their own welcoming hot tubs just for you, and there’s no feeling quite like sinking weary feet into one for the first time.
Your hot tub is just moments from your lodge door, so you can enjoy a dip in complete privacy whenever you fancy some time out in the bubbles. That means you can bask in the bubbles of a morning while you decide how to spend your day, enjoy the afternoon sunshine in style and even reflect on a busy day as night falls…all from your own little bit of hot tub Heaven.
"The day that we first drove through the gate at Stonerush we knew this was the place for us! Water, woodland, tranquility, wonderful wildlife, beautiful location and peace."
Dine at The Old Mill
Now don’t get us wrong, every lodge at Stonerush is home to a spacious kitchen that makes showing off your culinary skills more fun than ever, but for those evenings when you look at each other and share the same thought (“let’s eat out”), there’s The Old Mill.
The Stonerush estate’s restaurant – The Old Mill - not only serves the kind of meals that’ll have you penning the recipes down on your napkin, but the lakeside setting and classical interior make it a special place to dine at any time of day.
There’s an elegance to the restaurant that makes it a warm spot to just take your time and enjoy the views and a drink, and the menu reflects the seasons and showcases local produce at its finest.
"The staff are friendly and helpful and The Old Mill has a good restaurant with locally sourced food at very reasonable prices. We love the area, especially Polperro and Fowey, and are enjoying getting to know the lovely beaches, restaurants and pubs."
There’s something special about being close to water, and Stonerush Lakes centres around a shimmering, lily-dotted lake that changes with the seasons.
Summer days see the sun glint on the lily pads and the water comes alive with wildlife, and the autumn months see the water take on an orange blaze as the trees that surround it transform.
Many of our Stonerush Lakes lodges enjoy lakeside settings, and with floor to ceiling windows you’ll find yourself content to just sit, be and enjoy the sight of the water rippling just moments from your seat.
