There’s a fairytale feel to life at Clowance…with a manor house and a shimmering lake sitting quietly at the heart of its 97 acres, this landscaped estate is dotted with properties that’ll take your breath away. This is a place where you could find yourself calling a tree house or a glass lodge home, and where life is as much about outdoor adventures as indoor cosy times.
Wander woodland pathways, grab a boat from the boathouse and glide your way across the lake while the trees peer at their reflections in the water, or challenge the kids with the giant board games. For those indoor days, the swimming pool, spa and restaurant make the perfect places to forget the world, and just wait until you see the list of activities you’ll be able to try…
Leisure and fitness
However you like to spend your time, we’re pretty sure you’ll find the place to do it at Clowance. There’s an indoor swimming pool and a sauna and a spa for those pampering days. So, if you’ve been promising yourself a little bit of ‘you’ time for too long, make sure you book your treatment.
For those of you who are feeling energetic, the fitness suite makes it easy to keep up the fitness routine, and if you fancy a change of scene while you’re burning the calories, there’s a running track.
What is it about a good meal and a gorgeous view that just makes a good day a great one? Perfect for those lazy lunches and evening meals, the restaurant serves up the usual favourites, and we can’t think of a better way to relax in between adventures than by tucking into a plate of something yummy. Cleverly designed to showcase views of the lake, the restaurant and bar have a relaxing atmosphere, and there’s an indoor games area to keep the kids busy while you relax.
The estate could have been made for the outdoor adventurers amongst you, and in some ways it’s one big adventure playground for the whole family. You’ll find an outdoor play area and giant board games for the kids, and there are some gorgeous woodland walks for those quiet strolls. If the lake makes you feel like a spot of boating, pick a rowing boat from the boathouse and make your way across the shimmering waters.
Or, if you’re feeling more adventurous, have a go at SUP boarding on the lake! The park rangers lead guided foraging tours for the kids to bring the landscape to life, and there’s a 9-hole golf course for the golfers. Please note that activities are seasonal.
They’re an energetic bunch in Cornwall, and life at Clowance is one big opportunity to try new activities. Cornwall Segway run Segway sessions, so you can explore the grounds in style, or there are the SUP sessions on the lake during the summer. There are tennis and badminton courts, a putting green, croquet, and basketball court, and that means that when you’re not cosied up in your home from home, you’ll be trying something new and making memories.
Out and about
We know you’ll have plenty to keep you busy on the estate itself, but for those days out and about, you’ll find the resorts of Falmouth and St Ives within easy reach. Famous for its beautiful harbour and celebrated by artists for its natural light, St Ives is the perfect place to experience ‘real’ Cornwall during your stay. The Eden Project, the Minack Theatre and Land’s End are also within an hour’s drive, so you’ll have some of the country’s best-loved days out to discover.
