St Columb Major, Cornwall

Stay in one of our luxury Retallack lodges and step into stylish living in a gorgeous setting. Our selection of spacious lodges includes contemporary properties in 40 acres of unspoilt Cornish countryside, and as each lodge has been individually designed there’s one to suit every visitor.

We have three lodges to choose from in our Retallack range, and the park’s rural location means whichever one you go for you’ll enjoy views to take your breath away and the feeling of being a world away from the hustle and bustle of home. In fact, the park enjoys such a natural setting that it’s common to see all kinds of wildlife wandering through during a stay - so it’s the ultimate rural retreat.

Onsite facilities include tennis, kids play, golf, fishing and a restaurant, so if you're content to spend lazy days enjoying the resort then you'll find plenty to keep the whole family entertained. For those times when you do feel like exploring further afield, the park’s North Cornwall location makes it a popular base for cycling the Camel Trail, visiting Newquay and exploring Padstow…and then there’s the sheer exhilaration of the FlowRider wave machine…

FlowRider Wave Machine

There may be a tranquil beauty to Retallack, but don’t be fooled…the exhilarating FlowRider wave machine is often available for sessions to help you get used to the waves before braving the nearby sea. No matter how fit (or unfit as the case may be) or what age you are you'll be able to experience the rush of riding a wave on the only wave machine of its kind in the country, well this is Cornwall after all.

So, if you’re not quite feeling ready to take to the board at sea or if the surf’s not up to scratch during your stay then you can experience all the thrills of surfing in a safe environment. Trust us, the kids won’t want the session to end – and you’ll receive a discount when you book as you’re a guest of Retallack.  

The beach

Who says you only find beaches on the coast? You’ll find a sandy beach right on the Retallack resort, and that means you can pick your very own spot of sand and lie back beside the lake for some time out.

There’s a changing area, fish bar and even a beach shop, so you’ll have everything you need to recreate the classic day at the seaside…and you’ll only be minutes from your home from home. See, they’ve thought of everything! Just don’t forget your bucket and spade…

For the sporty

If you like to stay active during your holidays, then there’s good news. You’ll have use of the Retallack golf course and tennis courts throughout your stay, so you can challenge the rest of your party to your own tournaments, practice your serve and just enjoy the peace and quiet with some time on the course. See, they’ve thought of everything.

Better still, you can hire a kayak and take to the lake for an adventure on the water. If you prefer to stay on shore, how about a spot of fishing in the private lake? We know what you're thinking, how will you find time to fit it all in?!

Decked Balconies

Ok so the thrills and spills of the FlowRider may not be for all of you, but as every lodge has a decked balcony complete with a patio table and chairs you’ll have the perfect spot to sit and enjoy the peace and quiet. Life in Cornwall is as much about being outdoors as it is being inside, so if you’re anything like us within hours of arriving you’ll be in your flip flops and spending time outside.

You’ll be free to take in the views of Cornwall’s unspoilt countryside without even leaving your lodge, and furnished balconies mean one thing – dinner outside. 

Cycle track

The recreation area and cycle track means those of you keen to explore the site’s scenery on two wheels can enjoy a leisurely cycle. When the sun’s a-shining and the fresh air calls,  you can grab your bikes, pack up a picnic and head off to the track to see what you can see.

Or, if you'd rather take the opportunity to stretch your legs, the track's perfect for a jog and you can take in the views of the lake while you work off those holiday treats.


If you think the kids look happy as you drive onto the Retallack resort then just wait until they clap their eyes on the Shopwrecked playground and zip wire. The kind of adventure play area that’ll have them eager to get up and back on the slides each morning, this brand new play area’s one of the highlights of a family stay at the site. After all, it’s no fun if you don’t have the run of your own pirate ship is it?
