I visited Stonerush Lakes for the first time late last year and instantly fell in love with the place! So, when my better half and I decided to sneak a long weekend away, we decided to return to Stonerush and check out one of the newest lodges - 10 Lake View.
Even out of season when the weather is less than perfect, Stonerush is still a great place to go and just get away from it all in the cosy confines of a luxury lodge. When you first arrive at Stonerush Lakes after making your way through the winding single track lanes you feel like you’re entering a secret hideaway which is miles away from the real world, and the views of the surrounding countryside are quite spectacular.
We couldn’t wait to check out our home from home for the weekend, and as one of the newest additions to the site, 10 Lakeview didn’t disappoint. The stylish and modern kitchen was huge and had everything you could want, even a wine cooler which came in very useful indeed! The living area was equally impressive with large, comfy, leather couches which were perfect to sink into and enjoy an evening curled up in front of the big screen TV with a glass of wine (or three). The theme continued in the master bedroom, with big patio doors out on to the deck and a bed so comfortable we didn’t want to leave.
On Saturday afternoon the weather cleared, so at dusk we made our way down into Looe to explore the town. The last time we were there it was the weekend of the Looe music festival, so the small town was buzzing, this time it was completely different.
We wandered through the narrow streets down towards the sea, we chatted with a local resident out walking her dog who gave us a few pointers on where to walk. We strolled down onto the sand and around the headland a little way, enjoying the scenery which was bathed the soft blue light of the evening and just enjoyed the tranquillity of this beautiful town at this quiet time of year.
If you’re planning a trip to 10 Lakeview then make sure you go and explore Looe, there are plenty of restaurants and pubs to eat and drink at and stunning Cornish scenery to admire but you’ll find it hard to leave the cosy, warm, lodge. Why not cook yourselves a nice meal, open a bottle of wine and just relax?
