    “Very comfortable with high quality furnishings including beautiful pictures.”

    Would be good to add some to the kitchen as it was blank in comparison. Thanks for the very well fitted kitchen which allowed us to cook home cooked food. It was hard to find the property due to the one way system and only finding the sign on the way back out. Would be good to advise holidaymakers of the upper parking location before they arrive in case there is no room down the bottom and unloading from the top is easier.

    Would be good to add some to the kitchen as it was blank in comparison. Thanks for the very well fitted kitchen which allowed us to cook home cooked food. It was hard to find the property due to the one way system and only finding the sign on the way back out. Would be good to advise holidaymakers of the upper parking location before they arrive in case there is no room down the bottom and unloading from the top is easier. Decking could do with jet washing regularly to stop it going green and slippery. Would have loved to have been able to walk the dog directly on to neighbouring countryside without getting in the car.

    Many thanks for your kind words and for taking the time to provide feedback. We are delighted to hear that you enjoyed your stay. We have updated the information that is provided to future guests to highlight the car park above the lodge, as per your suggestion. Thank you for pointing this out. I have also asked the maintenance team to jet wash the patio. I agree with you regarding the walls and decor in the kitchen! The A-frame shape with sloped walls make it tricky to hang pictures or ornaments, otherwise we would have definitely done so. Kind regards, S Meadows Property Owner

About the location

GUNNISLAKE

Tavistock 5 miles; Plymouth 18 miles.

The small rural village of Gunnislake lies on the steeply wooded banks of the River Tamar. It has village pubs and a small selection of shops. Notably, the village sits at one end of the scenic Tamar Valley Railway - with regular services along the river bank to Plymouth. The area is perfect for exploring Dartmoor, the south and north coast beaches and the attractions of Cornwall’s far west. Close to hand, the Dartmoor town of Tavistock with its pannier market, pubs and restaurants is a must, as well as the popular fishing village of Calstock, renowned for its crafts and festivals, while the Donkey Sanctuary and Cotehele House and Gardens (NT) are just 10 minutes away. Enjoy a round of golf at St Mellion (8 miles), explore the restored Victorian mining village at Morwellham Quay (4 miles), search for otters and deer along the Tamar Valley footpath, visit the National Trust owned Lydford Gorge, or take a trip to the beach and picturesque harbour at Looe (25 miles) - there’s something for everyone. For something really different, why not ride the scenic Tamar Valley Railway into Plymouth and spend the day in the fabulous Marine Aquarium or strolling the historic Plymouth Hoe?
