We have a tennis hard court, and tennis equipment on site which our guests can use at no extra cost, along with a ball machine which can be adjusted to suit your ability. You don’t even need to work too hard collecting up all the used tennis balls as we’ve also got a ‘ball mower’ to help with this job!

We are fortunate enough to have an experienced national standard tennis player and coach here. He can coach all abilities from beginner to performance (adults and children) with cardio tennis also available (players and non-players).

If you’re interested, please get in contact with us.



Heated using electricity that we generate ourselves here at the Emerald, it’s average temperature is 32 degrees so it always feels like a luxurious giant bath!

And because it’s special, we know that guests would appreciate using it at their leisure, so it’s open whenever you choose – even for a midnight dip!

The pool area features well appointed changing rooms and a cloakroom. All you need to do is remember to pick up your swimming clothes and the towels we provide for poolside use, as you walk out of your suite.

The fully equipped gym boasts a Bose sound system and widescreen television, which means that you can work out when you like to the soundtrack or programme of your choice. No excuses…just don’t forget to bring your trainers with you!


The Emerald is the UK’s first ever zero carbon accommodation – a luxury environment and secluded sanctuary to escape from the crowds.

We wanted to show that you can be environmentally friendly and still have the finest quality of everything; that you can enjoy a hidden part of Cornwall and somewhere you can choose to be active or choose to do nothing but relax…


There’s so much for children to enjoy about a holiday at The Emerald!

Children will love our play area, indoor heated swimming pool and tennis court. They will also enjoy our table tennis table and croquet lawn. We provide all the equipment you and your family will need to enjoy these facilities. And for the older children, some of our luxury holiday cottages come with a second lounge area, perfect for when they want to enjoy a movie on Netflix without adult company!


It would be really easy to spend all your holiday within our five acres of grounds. But we also know that you’ll want to discover Cornwall.

Our location in Carnon Downs, between Falmouth and Truro, is perfectly positioned for exploring both the north and south Cornish coasts and within a short drive you’ll find an amazing choice of attractions and things to do.
