About Strawberry Cottage Holidays
Strawberry Cottage Holidays in West Cornwall are two delightful cottages, highly suited for families. The cottages are located on a family friendly holiday park with shared facilities including a heated indoor pool, play areas, crazy golf, racquet sports and small clubhouse which offers family entertainment through the summer months. The holiday park itself has plenty for you to do whilst staying here but you must discover this stunning area, close to the beaches of Hayle Towans, St Ives and Carbis bay. With so many places to visit you are never going to run out of things to do.
The Away with the Kids review
Offering a cosy home from home, these two holiday properties are located on Tolroy Manor Holiday Park where a third of the properties on the park are privately-owned. Both Karrek Lodge that sleeps 8 and Strawberry Cottage that sleeps 6 are well presented. Strawberry Cottage is tucked away in the lower part of the park overlooking the countryside and Karrek Lodge is in the upper part of the park near the swimming pool.
The Self Catering Holiday Homes
Both these properties are purpose built holiday cottages and as such are not huge but have been cleverly designed to maximize space and comfort.The self-catering holiday cottages are both non-smoking. The fully fitted kitchens are compact but thoughtfully equipped with everything you need to make anything from beans on toast to a Sunday roast (although information folders also include menus from the local takeaways!). The kitchens are equipped with a fridge/freezer, dishwasher, microwave and coffee maker. Travel cots and highchairs are available at both properties but must be requested when booking. There’s plenty of parking near the cottages and none of the car parks are more than a 2 minute walk from either of the properties.
Karreck Lodge is a 4 bedroom chalet style holiday cottage with an open plan living, dining area. The main bedroom has a full length balcony with bistro table and 2 chairs for that early morning cuppa or evening glass of wine. The lodge is a great layout for a family of up to 8 and importantly for larger groups, this cottage has a bathroom on the ground floor and a shower room on the first floor. There’s even a further TV/DVD player in one of the bedrooms, which has proved popular for teenagers to escape from younger siblings! Outside there’s a patio area with bench style table and chairs and doors from the dining area open onto this area, providing extended dining space, or the ability to feel like you’re eating outside even on slightly cooler days.
Strawberry Cottages, with 3 bedrooms has been lovingly renovated with a recently installed new bathroom and double glazing to ensure it’s really warm and cosy during the winter months, new flooring and a new kitchen which has giving it a fresh update and a new lease of life. In the bathroom there’s practical considerations such as a shower over the bath, plus an additional flexible shower head for hosing down the little ones quickly when you get back from the beach, a heated towel rail and even a rail fixed to the ceiling over the bath for hanging wet suits. Outside, there’s a small patio area and bench style table and chairs for outside dining during the warmer winter months. There’s also plenty of communal garden space nearby for little ones to play on.
The local supermarkets will deliver to the park, so you don’t even have to drag the little ones around the shops on the first day of their holiday.
Holiday Park Facilities
Set in the grounds of an old manor estate, the parks facilities include a shared heated indoor swimming pool with toddler pool, sauna, squash courts, tennis courts, bar and clubhouse, A small park area with swings, slides and climbing equipment together with crazy golf and an outdoor giant chess will bring some fun and amusement for the children.

The club also offers a selection of bar food and takeaways so you can avoid the bother of cooking and really enjoy your holiday.
Location and things to do
Strawberry Cottage Holidays are nestled in the perfect spot for families who love nothing better than spending their day on a sandy beach. It boasts an excellent location, close to all of the famous tourist destinations on both coasts of Cornwall, within just a few minutes drive to some of the most stunning beaches of West Cornwall. With less than 2 miles to the stunning sandy beach Of Hayle Towans, access to the beach was vastly improved in 2014 when a large slope was built with Lottery funding, enabling pushchair and wheelchair access right on to the sand. Hayle is based on the estuary of the river Hayle which leads into St Ives bay. The famous town of St Ives is just 5 miles away where you can enjoy the wonderful beaches, the cobbled streets and the bustling, picturesque harbour. For family days out there is the Minack Theatre and Telegraph museum at Porthcurno, or nearer to home, the award winning Paradise Park animal sanctuary. This is walking distance from the cottages and provides a great few hours of entertainment with its bird displays, otter and penguin feeding, little train, farm zoo and even both an indoor and outdoor play area. There's a couple of cafe's but providing you eat outside in the gardens (there's plenty of tables) you can even take your own picnic. Also nearby are: Flambards Theme park, the Poldark mine and a must visit is the National Trust owned St Michael's Mount which is just 5 miles away.
