I loved the log cabin, amazing view, that you could see the view from bed, the stable door, the log burner (with wood supplied), fairy lights, fresh milk in the fridge & cream tea provisions, that it was dog-friendly, and there was no light pollution apart from Thimble Hall next door and a cottage in the distance, meaning wonderfully starry skies.

Beautifully located. Fabulous views of the Tamar Valley. Was lovely to eat breakfast on the veranda, each morning. My best part were the dark skies that allowed me to see the stars and a chunk of the Milky Way. The stars jumped out.

Great views & comfortable bed. Fine for a couple of nights as the tiny kitchen area isn't in the same room & the novelty soon wears off. Need to dislocate your leg to sit on the loo without leaving the door open. It's a cosy cottage but lacking in home comforts.

We had a great time at Thimble Lodge, it was very cosy, we were a bit worried it would be cold, but it wasn't, the bed was really comfortable and there was a lovely furry throw on the bed, it was all perfect. The kitchen and bathroom area is small, but we didn't go to do loads of cooking, The veranda area had 2 lovely cosy chars on, if the weather Read morewas nicer, we would have liked to sit on them, have a bbq and a glass of gin and watch the world go by, but we will need to go back in the summer.
