What’s Open at The Valley?
April 12th, 2021
We are incredibly excited to announce that all of our facilities at the Valley will be open from the 12th April, apart from the restaurant as per government guidelines. With social distancing measures still in place, we explain what to expect as we reopen the doors of our luxury cottages in Cornwall once again this spring.
Here at The Valley, we pride ourselves as being a safe and secure family haven that welcomes your beloved pet dogs. We have many exclusive leisure facilities in our gated cottage complex for you and your family to enjoy. These include:
- Fitness suite
- Indoor and outdoor heated swimming pools
- Spa Pool
- Games room
- Hot tub
- Squash and tennis courts
- Accessible location
Below we will be taking a look at the opening times and social distancing policies of each one!
Our cottages’ huge appeal is the option to self-cater or indulge in our onsite restaurant.
With most of our facilities opening from 12th April, our restaurant requires a slightly longer wait, with our doors planned to open on 17th May when our guests can safely sit in the indoor dining area.
Being in such an accessible location, our cottages are fantastic if you want to explore the restaurants in Truro or Falmouth, which provide outside dining areas before 17th May.
The Valley offers a fun family experience with our choice of indoor or outdoor swimming pools. Our outdoor pool is heated from the middle of June to September, and our indoor pool is fantastic for all-year-round fun!
All facilities that are usually communal, including our swimming pools, will be bookable by one family at a time, this can be organised when you arrive at the cottages. You will be given an available time slot to enjoy the exclusivity of the pool.
Other Communal Areas
Other communal areas such as our fitness suits, games room, squash and tennis court will also be accessible to individual families through our bookable slotting system, which can be arranged upon arrival.
Some of our luxury cottages are complete with a hot tub for you to unwind after an exciting day of exploring! Our hot tubs are extensively cleaned for your safety and hygiene.
We would like to mention that all of our cottages undergo thorough cleaning procedures every time our guests vacate to ensure that every one of our guests’ personal safety and welfare is adhered to. Our accommodation is expertly cleaned with an extremely high level of hygiene being maintained.
Our beautiful cottages are set amongst the remote Cornish countryside, conveniently located away from local towns, meaning you can safely enjoy the seclusion and make the most of an abundance of open outdoor space.

Why Cornwall in January is a Special Time to Visit
December 13th, 2018
As the frost covers the moors in a sparkling blanket and the winter sun lights up the beaches, you may think Cornwall in January is even better than in the summer months. And with so few holiday makers there, it will feel as if you have the whole county to yourself when staying at our luxury cottages in Cornwall.
After the busy Christmas and New Year period, a winter break in January with your loved ones is just what you need to leave the stresses behind. Especially when relaxing in a hot tub with a glass of wine in hand!
Come to Cornwall in January and enjoy:
The Beaches to Yourself
Wrap up warm and walk along the deserted beaches as the waves roll in. With the seasonal dog bans lifted, your dog is free to run about as they please. More often than not, you won’t see another soul the whole day! Take the chance to snap up some great pictures of the gorgeous seaside scenery while the sand is packed with surfers and sunbathers! With so many beaches in Cornwall, there are plenty of spots to head to walk off your Christmas indulgences.
Deliciously Warming Foods in Local Pubs
Warm up from the winter chills with a mug of hot chocolate at a local café or a pint in the local pub by a roaring fire and fill your belly with delicious hearty food after a trek through the frosty moors. Cornwall has plenty of great choices for food enthusiasts, with many restaurants and cafes making the most of delicious locally sourced produce.
Plenty of Exciting Indoor Activities
Being January in Britain, we certainly cannot promise rain-free and sunny days, so the likelihood is there may be a day or two on your holiday that you have to head indoors. Cornwall has many fantastic artistic centres to visit, such as the Falmouth National Maritime Museum, where you can stay warm and dry. Many of Cornwall’s historical locations can also provide some shelter, with most remaining open all year round. Learn about Cornwall’s rich history as you visit the medieval castles, Victorian mansion and a range of mines.
Walks in Nature
Pop on a hat and scarf and go walking through Cornwall’s woodlands and country trails. The whole family will love following nature trails and looking out for the bright red breast of robins. As the month goes on watch in wonder as nature starts to wake up from its winter sleep – you might even see snowdrops starting to emerge!
Quaint Villages While They Are Quiet
Explore the atmospheric fishing villages along the coastline, relax and do a spot of shopping in the January sales. The boutique and independent shops in the quaint little villages are great ways to while away a lazy afternoon. The narrower streets will be less busy at this time of year, allowing you to see the sites at your own pace.
Will you be joining us in Cornwall this January? Let us know what you’re most looking forward to about this special time of year!
Paloma Faith to headline at Eden
April 15th, 2015
Paloma Faith has been confirmed as the headliner for one of the Eden Sessions.
The Eden Sessions is a series of mid-summer gigs held at The Eden Project near St Austell and over the past few years has drawn huge acts like the Doves, Blink-182, Mumford and sons and The Kaiser Chiefs to Cornwall.
On the 24th June Paloma will have the crowds of people on their feet dancing, with songs from her latest album and her double-platinum albums. With one of the most distinctive voices in modern pop it’s easy to see why Paloma has become such a super star.
Other big names already confirmed and sold out include Paulo Nutini, Elton John and Ben Howard.
You can easily get to the Eden Sessions from our cottages with a pool in Cornwall, by hopping onto the A30 or A39.
Shaun the Sheep is set to take over Land’s End
October 29th, 2014
Land’s End are set to welcome Shaun the Sheep and Wallace and Gromit to the attraction in 2015 when Land’s End will become Lambs End!
Heritage Great Britain Plc have confirmed a deal with Aardman Animations to bring Shaun and family to Cornwall. This deal will ensure there is a new £500,000 interactive family experience.
Visit Mossy Bottom Farm, explore the Naughty Pigs Sty and see if you can cure Shirley the Sheep’s hiccups. You can also star in a Shaun the Sheep scene using the new green screen technology plus meet other characters such as Morph and Wallace & Gromit.
Allan Leech from Heritage Great Britain said: “We’re absolutely thrilled to be bringing a world class attraction to Land’s End and to work with the legendary Aardman studio.
“The plans look stunning and we’re confident the experience will become a must visit attraction for tourists to the landmark site.”
Due to open in February 2015, you too could enjoy the new experience when staying in our cottages with a pool in Cornwall.
