The property

Tamar Valley View is perfectly positioned to take full advantage of the fantastic views over the Tamar Valley - a superb rural haven and well known for its outstanding natural beauty.

This area has so much to offer the whole family. Explore nearby Cotehele House, gardens and gentle riverside walks about 5 minutes drive away. Also nearby are Kit Hill Country Park, with stunning views to both coasts and Gawton Gravity hub with exhilarating mountain bike and walking trails. Discover the glorious sandy beach of Whitsand Bay with dramatic scenery, or walk along the adjacent South West coast path. An equal distance is the delightful old fishing village of Looe with its safe sandy beaches, boat trips, entertainment and great coastal walks. Walk on to charismatic Polperro with its picturesque cove, harbour, quaint streets and traditional inns serving local Cornish food and drink.

Both Dartmoor and Bodmin Moors are easily accessible, with scenic undulating moorland and a myriad of prehistoric monuments. Enjoy Golitha Falls with captivating and spectacular falls that weave their way through ancient oak and beech woodlands. The Eden Project with its giant bio-domes of exotic plants is a great all weather family attraction, as is Morwellham Quay (about 4 miles from our Lodge) and the Donkey Park and Soft Ball Play Barn adjacent to Honicombe Manor. Alternatively, visit nearby Tavistock with its fascinating and diverse Pannier Market, riverside park, leisure centre and theatre or historic Plymouth's Hoe and Barbican.

Set in the grounds of Honicombe Manor Holiday Park, Tamar Valley View is a spacious holiday lodge perfect for families and friends with a home from home ambiance. The reverse style layout provides a delightful and spacious open plan living room. There is ample super comfy seating and wall to wall windows to admire your surroundings. Sit and relax on the balcony, taking in the far reaching views whilst enjoying a barbecue and drink. Downstairs are three cheerful co-ordinated bedrooms. The two modern shower rooms are a real bonus. Tamar accommodation sits centrally on the resort, with a children's outdoor play area and the tennis courts within easy reach. Step outside and enjoy a picnic on the shared open space or meander beside the stream and duck pond to spot some wildlife. From your holiday home, you can wander through the resort to the indoor and outdoor swimming pools, on site bar and restaurant (seasonal opening times apply), shop and reception - a short, but enjoyable stroll.

About the location

CALLINGTON

Tavistock 9 miles; Launceston 11.5 miles.

Callington is a Cornish market town, rich in mining heritage and overlooked by Kit Hill, the highest point in the area, donated to the people of Cornwall by Prince Charles to celebrate the birth of Prince William. From the top of Kit Hill there are fabulous views across south-east Cornwall as far as Plymouth Sound. Callington is set in the heart of the Tamar Valley, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, and offers a good selection of shops, inns and cafes, as well as being the home of Ginsters Cornish pasties. A few miles away, the quaint village of Calstock clings to the steep banks of the river Tamar and is dominated by the splendid Calstock Railway Viaduct, a giant 11-arched stone construction supporting one of Britain’s most picturesque branch lines running through the Tamar Valley. Other interesting places along the river are Cotehele, a beautiful historic house and gardens owned by the National Trust with a small quay and inn, and Morwhellam Quay, a theme park that staged a living history production for the BBC and where visitors can explore the rich mining heritage and watch blacksmiths, potters and craftsmen at work. The pannier market town of Tavistock is only nine miles from Callington and is well worth a visit on your way to a day’s walk on Dartmoor. A splendid base to explore south Cornwall and West Devon.
