Lovely accomadation, with everything we needed and more.
Beeches Bungalow is a home from home.
Wonderful lodge very clean had everything we needed. Only slight point to improve would be that the beds and chairs are very firm, would have preferred something a little softer
We had a lovely break in Cornwall
Excellent value for money and so clean - would recommend
Great getaway. Helpful staff and in a great location far from anywhere
Larches Lodge has a very unique setting. I believe it would appeal to families with young children, courting couples or families that has lived life experiences and would like to escape for awhile. A very pleasant recharging base.
The WIFI was excellent and reliable so although isolated, we were still able to keep in touch with the outside world
The accommodation was clean and well appointed; satisfying basic needs and welcoming. A compact space set within the proximity of gentle streams giving it a feel of seduction that shuns fast cars, traffic lights and crowded subways.
An almost detoxing experience that leaves good memories.

Best 3 days of staying
In our log cabin
Excellent and would definitely return! We booked last minute and was very reasonable break from Friday to Monday .
Very clean and tidy.
Very tranquil setting .
Laurie, Isle Of Wight
Accommodation was comfortable and perfectly adequate for our needs, the only issue we had was an over sensitive fire alarm when cooking. I'd also recommend bringing a larger frying pan, especially if you're a family!
Probably the most relaxing holiday we've had, we'll definitely visit again.
Our holiday was calm and peaceful, just the way we like it.
When I left school I joined the military, trained in Exeter and was involved in many exercises in the area so it was very nostalgic.
We loved the idea that there were no street lights on site or in the vicinity which added to the charm and seclusion.
Living in London is fine for the style of life one subscribes to but it is far from private. If you would like to visit your innermost self, then I would recommend Ruthern Valley.
Beautiful place run by very nice people, couldn't fault it
Great break was expecting a bath as per picture but lovely updated shower room
We stayed at a Larches Lodge for 7 nights 24/11 - 01/12, 2017. By night number three we had booked again for next year. We were looking for a getaway from it all escape for our anniversary and we got an incredibly peaceful lodge spotlessly clean, lovely and cosy and well equipped with everything you need bar towels which we knew about anyway. Beds made up on arrival with spotless linen and when we got there the cabins more than sufficient heating had been turned on ready for us. Kitchen comprises of a four seater table, full size electric oven with hob, microwave, kettle, toaster, cutlery, utensils, cups, glasses, plates, dishes, pans, oven dishes etc (supply your own tea towels). Lounge comprises of 2 seater sofa bed, 2 tub chairs, lamp + table, coffee table, flat screen TV with freeview and wireless internet throughout the site, large patio doors looking out onto decked area (excellent for wildlife watching). Bedroom 1 comprises of double bed, two large bedside cabinets, single wardrobe, spotless beds made up on arrival with 4 pillows & quilt. (Very comfy) Bedroom 2 comprises of two regular sized single beds, wardrobe and bedside cabinet separating beds. Good sized room far better than any caravans we stayed in. Bathroom comprises of bath with overhead shower, WC & washbasin. Spotless again. Lovely outdoor area with decking to front with picnic table and a covered walkway to side. Handy for our very british unpredictable weather & bird watching. Lodges vary very slightly so don't use this as a checklist. We were in Lodge 2. Lots of wildlife around with plenty visiting Jays, nuthatches, woodpecker and many more common garden birds. The vast majority of the time we didnt't even notice other people on site staying at the same time. Bliss. The owner came to visit after we had settled to check we were happy and everything was working correctly and we were happy. Lovely touch thank you. Well equipped shop on site. Very sadly we had to leave a day early due to family issues but my husband and I have decided to make this our anniversary retreat as this really is a little gem of a place to stay with easy access to the rest of Cornwall should you wish to explore.
Peaceful site in beautiful wooded valley off the beaten track, just over a mile from the Camel Trail (from Grogley Halt it's 3miles to Wadebridge and 4 miles to Bodmin). Ideal for walkers, cyclists and runners or just to get away and relax for a few days. Perfect base for exploring Cornwall and close to Bodmin Moor.
Fantastic site, fabulous owners.
A lovely haven of tranquility away from the hustle of work!
The weather was against us but we still enjoyed our time at Ruthern Valley and aim to return some day.
