The Station Flat Pet-Friendly Cottage description

Holiday home
The Station Flat is a quirky holiday flat, situated above the ticket office at Benny Halt alongside the Lappa Valley Steam Railway, just outside the village of St Newlyn East, near Newquay in Cornwall and can sleep four people. This first floor apartment has a double bedroom, a twin bedroom, a shower room and an open plan living area with a kitchen, a dining area and a sitting area. Outside there is off road parking for one car, shared lawned garden with picnic benches and a pond and use of the on-site facilities. The Station Flat is a lovely place to spend your holiday in Cornwall.

Set amidst open fields and winding hedgerows, the North Cornwall village of St Newlyn East offers a peaceful and relaxing alternative to the bustling, vibrant town of Newquay - situated under five miles away. The perfect starting point for a number of walks through picturesque countryside, this lovely town is centrally located for a variety of excellent attractions including many stately homes and gardens, model railways, theme parks, fishing villages and harbours - not to mention some of the UK's best surfing beaches. For a livelier nightlife, visitors will enjoy the various clubs and pubs in nearby Newquay, though also of interest in the town are the impressive Zoo and Sea Life Centre. Also within easy driving distance is the cathedral city of Truro and the magnificent Eden Project.

Cornwall's visitors are constantly tempted back to the beautiful coastline, tiny fishing villages, hidden coves and the world-class surfing. Whatever the reason, Cornwall has long cemented its place as one of Britain's premier holiday destinations.

We loved our holiday at Lappa, the site and facilities were fantastic. We intended to use it as a base but the boys loved the site so much they did not want to leave.

The staff at Lappa Valley were fantastic. Extra touches like the plastic crockery for my 3 yr old to use. Having play equipment just outside the flat. Beautiful scenery in a quiet area.

Lovely flat all modern and new. Everything inside you could need for a very comfortable holiday, whatever the weather. One week was not enough!

Staff were really nice helpful.Very clean tidy flat which alot bigger than we thought it would be. Being able to watch put of the window at the engine drivers stoking up the steam engines in the morning was great for my 5 year old boy.

Everything about our holiday was absolutely first class. We were made to feel very welcome by David and staff, and we were astounded by the comfort and cleanliness of the flat - it was virtually brand new! There was even a vase of fresh flowers on the table. The Railway really have done a fantastic job in providing a thoroughly enjoyable place to stay. This was our first stay in Cornwall and we are really looking forward to going back to The Station Flat

Clean warm and very peaceful quite remote but lots of walks, staff very helpful, a long walk up the hill to the village but shops and pub very good, making the walk back down the hill less noticeable,

This was a last minute (no, really!) booking. Having been let down by where we were meant to stay for a week, we were really lucky to find somewhere so close and so comfortable. The Station flat is well equipped, tastefully furnished and decorated in a light, modern style. It's isolated, rural location could be described as idyllic (with pond, cute wildlife, shady trees, grassy areas). However, the narrow, winding 3 mile journey from the main road can seem a lot further in the dark and the lack of street lights - or any lights to guide you from the car park to the building in fact - is a little spooky until you get in range of the floodlights' sensors. Once inside, though, it's cosy, with plenty of lights! If you look outside after dark, that is all you see! Darkness and nothing else - weird! The flat is within the grounds of The Lappa Valley Railway, to which you have complimentary use of all the (mostly child orientated) facilities. So, great if you have little ones. The park closes at 4:15, so you aren't disturbed by noise or people after that. If it was our property, we'd have a more secure lock on the front door, especially with the isolated location, and lack of street lights. I'm also glad I took my coffee maker. The other (only slightly) minus points are no milk jug, lack of serving dishes, a few small cobwebs and a bit of mould in the shower. The cold water pipes get noisy in the morning too, but that was quite quirky. We were very satisfied, even with the mix up over when we had to be out, and the lack of phone signal.

We had the best holiday in this lovely apartment in St Newlyn East. This is the perfect place for families with young children as you have full use of the park facilities. Our son loved watching the trains getting ready every morning. The apartment is fantastic with everything you need in there. It's in a lovely part of the country, very quiet, wonderful views and is very spacious. The staff were extremely helpful and friendly. Very central to a lot of other places in Cornwall that are great to visit. Our son can't wait until his next visit there.

The station flat was lovely. We had everything there that we needed. Ideal location to go to many other places in Cornwall with a couple of really nice pubs to go to of an evening which are a short journey away.
