There is a space for 2 cars, but 2 smallish cars I think. The garden is enclosed which is good for dogs and/or children. It is in a quiet one way street. Beware the stairs are very steep.The house is really well decorated an equipped. It is very clean. It is very warm and they tell you to turn up thermostat if weather gets cold. Beds are very comfyRead more. Good shower. Smallish but adequate garden paved over, no grass. It really is exceptional. Well worth a visit. Hide

We had a fantastic time at Lodore. It was like a home from home, well equipped and comfortable. The location was great with Colwell Bay and local shops in walking distance and buses that stop nearby. It was a great base to explore the island. Fantastic that dogs are allowed too. Would definitely consider booking again in the future.

Clean, comfortable, well equipped, dog friendly, no evidence of any previous doggy visitors, had a lovely holiday.

Reviewed by Duncan 1st June 2019

A comfortable property, very clean and presented to a high standard. Top marks to the cleaning team - perfect. The Kitchen was the best equipped out of all the cottages we have rented. The Beach is only a ten minute walk and it's a similar distance to the nearest shop. If you enjoy walking their are plenty of interesting walks from the house, a gooRead mored map is helpful for finding some of the less obvious Footpaths and Bridleways. Hide
