"Just back from a fantastic holiday at Little Fursdon Holiday…"
Just back from a fantastic holiday at Little Fursdon Holiday Studio is near Liskeard, right on the edge of Bodmin Moor.
It was a great base for exploring most of Cornwall (which I'm sure we did) and has fabulous beaches and other attractions (including the Eden Project) virtually on the doorstep.
Watch out though, even though it's not far from the beaten track, follow the directions carefully: everyone including us goes first to the nearby campsite (which shares the postcode - confusing for satnav)where we bumped into our pre-ordered Waitrose delivery!
We were delighted to turn away from the small campsite and arrive at the altogether lovelier proposition of Litte Fursdon.
As well as a warm welcome, throughout our stay, owners David and Lindsey made us feel like part of the family without ever invading our privacy. They offered really useful tips and advice about where to visit (and where not to), what to do and where to eat.
The recently refurbished "upside down" studio makes great use of the space (and there is definitely plenty of space - the downstairs bedroom easily accommodated two adults and ever-growing 12yrold DS). The calming colours and contemporary style (no clutter, no cliche, and no Cath Kidston), helped us to instantly unwind. The private deck was fab for mini barbecues and romantic (ahem) drinks in the evening.
DH and I enjoyed lazy mornings while DS fed the chickens (everything here gets recycled) and made friends with the other children.
Lindsey let me look around the spacious, contemporary yurts (no faux Mongolian styling here) on changeover day, and they really are luxurious: more well appointed Scandinavian hotel room than camping (which I've avoided since a traumatic episode with the Brownies).
The yurts occupy a huge and immaculately tended field where kids (young and old) can really let off steam. We really made use of the badminton/ volleyball net (maybe got a bit too competitive) and DS loved exploring the gardens and being entertained by fluffy-footed chickens (who also provide free-range eggs), and playing ball with Sid, the family dog.
We were welcome to join the families staying in the three luxury cornish yurts, so we headed for the fab and funky dining kitchen(where each yurt has its own appliances and space), played on the table football and admired the firepit and beautifully landscaped outdoor eating area (table tennis and outdoor pizza oven coming soon). The whole set-up is great for socialising, whether you're holidaying with old friends or making new ones.
We had a fantastic holiday and would thoroughly recommend Little Fursdon as a base for a brilliant Cornish holiday or even just to hideaway and do very little other than relax.Read moreLess
