Luxury at heart

Discover your holiday home idyll at Retallack Resort.

Nestled in 150 glorious acres of north Cornish countryside, Retallack Resort & Spa provides a five-star, Visit England accredited self-catering holiday village, with Swiss style lodges and boutique barn accommodation. It’s a site that more and more prospective holiday home owners are falling in love with, especially those who visit regularly and are seeking something a little more permanent.

If this sounds like you, you might just want to take a look at the beautiful barns. Effortlessly stylish and surrounded by countryside with some perched on the banks of the lakes, each barn provides a space that’s designed for time spent together. Picture living spaces with sink-into sofas, cosy bedrooms for snuggling down in, deckings perfect for gazing up at the starry night sky. Really, from the outside in, the quality of these lodges speaks for itself, but they come with one key point of difference to other similar resorts around Cornwall: the resort itself.

For those who like to keep active, Retallack provides what is arguably the best watersports facilities in the Duchy. With three lakes on the site, you’ll find everything you need to get your blood pumping, from the Total Wipeout style aqua park, wake park and FlowRider (Cornwall’s only year-round surfing wave), to stand up paddle boarding. There’s also the Adventure Playground, perfect for little ones in search of non-stop fun, and even on days of bad weather, an indoor swimming pool is sure to help the kids burn off all that excess energy.

Of course, some prefer a gentler cadence whilst on holiday. Fortunately, Retallack’s Spa and Health Club has everything you or your guests could need to indulge in some proper me-time. The ESYA Spa offers a full menu of treatments, from glowing facials to full-body massages, whilst the Health Club – for those who like to keep fit – has everything necessary to work up a sweat and keep on top of your routine.

When the day’s end finally rolls around, Retallack’s exceptional accommodation provides a welcome and luxurious retreat. And whether you’re choosing to stay there yourself, or to let it out to guests, what we’re sure you’ll find is that a holiday home purchase here is an investment that yields dividends well beyond the monetary.
