Wheal Matilda

3 Bedrooms | Sleeps 6

Similar to all our timber lodges, Wheal Matilda is a delightful grass roofed eco lodge built with love and care by a skilled bunch of cabinet makers here in the village of Porthtowan. Built with timber sourced from sustainable woodland here in Cornwall, Matilda is a 5 star luxury lodge and has also achieved the Gold Award under VisitEngland’s assessment criteria.

The grass roof ensures the lodge is warm in winter and cool in summer. The entrance to Matilda is across a level footbridge which spans a small babbling brook (only about 4 inches deep) and this brook runs along the front of your garden area which is really pleasant when you are relaxing in the garden area. It has three bedrooms and comfortably sleeps up to six people.

The beds can be configured to suit your particular requirements. Access to your lodge is via three wide steps to the main decking area. It also has level access via the side decking entrance. All rooms within the lodge are on the level. The fully equipped kitchen has a full size fridge, freezer, dishwasher and washer/dryer. For those coffee lovers it even has a cafetiere’.

The lounge area leads onto the main decking area that also has a full size, four person hot tub. This is all under glass, allowing you to enjoy the tub and dine al-fresco whatever the weather. Also provided is a charcoal BBQ. The side decking area is also covered in glass and has an external heated drench shower which is ideal for washing the sand and salt off at the end of the day.

Like all our lodges it is only around 5 to 10 minutes walk to the centre of the village and Porthtowan’s amazing Blue Flag beach.
