About Angela & David Clark

Darrynane is the Cornish family home of Angela & David Clark & family and has been since July 1998. We live here with our daughter, who is at University in Reading and our two mad working Cocker Spaniels and enjoy occasional visits from our two grown up children. We are normally around during the day attending to the garden and grounds and although we leave you alone to enjoy your holiday we are available should you need anything.

Angela & David Clark purchased this cottage in 1998

Why Angela & David Clark chose Cornwall

Darrynane is located in a beautiful position surrounded by woods, it has it's own 40ft waterfall and the river. There are many walks from the cottage and nearby on Bodmin moor and the Camel Trail. Travelling around Cornwall is easy with the good local road network making both the North & South coast beaches, Tintagel, Boscastle, Padstow, Port Isaac and the Eden project and gardens of Heligan all easily accessible.

What makes this cottage unique

Each cottage is detached set in its own private fenced and gated garden with access either to woods, the waterfall or the river. There is an ancient cave in the woods, did this once hide King Arthur?

Each season is special at Darrynane. Spring time is beautiful with the woodland carpet of Bluebells stunning Azaleas and Rhododendrons. On hot Summer days you can paddle in the pool at the bottom of Darrynane falls, our 35ft waterfall. In Autumn the trees turn from green to yellow and red providing a superb display and Winter when the granite in the woods turns green as the different moses emerge,you can snuggle in front of the cosy fire with a good book or watch a dvd. .

Dogs always love their visit to Darrynane. Each cottage has its own fenced and gated garden and Riverside, Lakeside and The Stables cottages they can freely run around the whole of the cottage and The Lodge has a beautiful woodland garden to explore.

What ever the season you can always look forward to coming home to a cosy cottage far from the madding crowd!

A totally relaxing break.

  • 5 of 5

The Lodge, located within beautiful wooded surroundings, provided us with total peace and quiet and very comfortable accommodation with every possible facility. Upon arrival, Angela and David made us feel very welcome and throughout our stay were most attentive to our needs. We loved The Lodge which was just to our liking and we felt very much at home. We found the location ideal for visiting numerous local attractions which we loved, particularly Tintagel and Port Isaac yet we were not too far removed from the very western tip of Cornwall which enabled us to spend a wonderful day at St Michael's Mount, which we had never visited before. In summation we had a terrific time with excellent hosts who we fully expect to meet again in the not too distant future. We would thoroughly recommend The Lodge to our family and friends.
