Cedar is a semi-detached luxury eco retreat tucked away in a tranquil rural pocket close to Cornwall’s palm-lined south coast. Set within verdant countryside and only a few miles from the Caribbean-esque beaches and glistening marinas of Falmouth and the Roseland, it affords a sumptuous sanctuary for two people to relish days of romantic escapism. Designed in perfect homage to nature and blending with the beautiful countryside that unfurls beyond its boundaries, it features super-insulated wood-clad walls, floor-to-ceiling windows, and a private deck overlooking graceful eucalyptus trees and topped with a bubbling hot tub. Spend magical moments following country lanes and coastal roads to find hidden gems, before returning to your dreamlike abode to savour golden hour moments and champagne sunsets at Cedar.

Eco Escapism

Cedar is part of The Emerald, an award-winning development which is the only truly zero carbon holiday destination in the country having been awarded Code 6 status, the highest possible grading for eco efficiency. Within the five acres of shared grounds is a solar farm which generates all the energy The Emerald needs and more. You’ll find two useful Tesla charging points for electric cars on site (please bring your own adaptor for other makes). The owners politely ask that you state on arrival if you plan to take advantage of this service, as it is chargeable.


Luxuriating in the comforts of Cedar’s open-plan living area is a dream, tempted by the lure of pared-back Scandi aesthetics and floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking a spacious outside deck. Styled in a soft, earthy palette, it has a bespoke baton timber feature wall, contrasted with off-white walls and hessian-hued 100% Portuguese linen curtains. Oh-so-cosy, its deep sofa is topped with Harlequin sofa cushions and complemented by an oversized antiqued rug and solid mango wood coffee table. Still life artwork adorns this soothing space, while pops of greenery in the form of leafy potted plants harmonise with the views beyond the windows. For leisurely mornings and evenings of entertainment curled up on the sofa, there is a Smart TV with Netflix, an iPod dock and unlimited WiFi.

Eating and dining

Adjoining the lounge, the fully equipped kitchen has everything you need for preparing delicious feasts. Exuding Scandi vibes, it features chic cabinets with an organic wood finish, paired with pearly countertops providing ample space to flex your culinary creativity. For rustling up meals, a range of appliances and accoutrements are ingeniously stowed within a minimalist design, while for dreamy tipples, an espresso machine for fresh morning coffee and a wine fridge for those perfectly chilled moments await. At the centre of the kitchen, a beautiful kitchen island with matching stools takes pride of place, offering plenty of space for crafting culinary creations. Adding extra choice for feasting, an additional dining table and chairs reside in the adjoining lounge ready for magical mealtimes in Boutique bliss.

Sleeping and bathing

Cedar's spacious bedroom beckons for sumptuous repose, decorated in olive and off-white hues and harmonised with organic textures. Uncover the super-king bed with Nkuku mango wood and rattan bed frame, swathed in luxurious linens and promising dreamy views over the decking space. A stylish wardrobe, chest of drawers and antique desk offer ample storage, while fine stripe Nkuku armchairs cater to moments of tranquillity. Adjoining the bedroom, the ensuite bathroom boasts toasty under-floor heating, a walk-in rainfall shower, and free-standing bathtub for two for soothing soaks.

Indoor swimming pool and gym

A true sanctuary, Cedar proposes moments of relaxation with a shared, indoor heated swimming pool, fully equipped gym with Bose speakers, and an all-weather outdoor tennis court with new, state of the art synthetic grass enabling year-round play. Lounge poolside at your leisure or fine-tune your skills with tennis coaching onsite with an experienced, national-level tennis coach for the ultimate retreat.

Spa room

For an extra heavenly experience, there is spa room onsite which offers a luxurious range of bespoke massages and treatments, including Caci treatments. Please do get in touch if this is something you wish to arrange.

Outdoor space

Seek storybook moments from sunrise to sunset, Cedar’s glass-fronted deck enjoys a beautiful aspect overlooking manicured lawns and mature trees. Sheltered by timber fences and adorned with comfortable furnishings, it features an outdoor table and chairs, two loungers, a sun parasol and a bubbling hot tub. Set low into the deck outside the bedroom, the hot tub is especially tempting and sets a romantic scene for evening soaks and chilled-out nighttime dips with underwater lighting. Beyond the deck, you are invited to make the most of five acres of woodland and beautifully maintained grounds, following the flow of your footsteps and savouring the peaceful surroundings. For more magic, bundle up a picnic and find a spot beneath the dappled light of the trees for enchanting moments together in the heart of Cornwall’s heavenly pastoral landscape.


There is parking for two cars either right outside the door or by the garden gate.

A peaceful retreat. Nicely designed and a great use of the grounds.

Great place to stay

Really beautiful retreat.

Fantastic holiday apartment with absolutely everything you could need whilst away. Extremely spacious and quiet with brilliant facilities. My son would've happily spent the entire week in the resort without leaving.

Amazing must see place to stay

The cottage was of a very high standard and to have such beautiful grounds to walk the dog and a lovely swimming pool at our disposal was wonderful.

We enjoyed a perfect relaxing break at Cedar lodge, we would recommend to everyone and hope to return
