    “All in all a very nice lodge, although.”

    ... Pet friendly but nowhere to walk the dog or to be able to let it out safely. For a 3 Bed Property I would have rather a washing machine than a dishwasher? But the most awkward for me was no Hoover or Mop & Bucket? I have never in 40 odd years left a property and not been able to clean properly. We were out most days but on the couple of day's we stayed around it was very tiring to keep the dog in and then have to go off in the car to find somewhere to walk him. I am registered disabled so ...

I am registered disabled so this was an inconvenience. The Park roads are atrocious with pot holes etc. The Lodge was lovely but would not stay at Honicombe again

    Thank you for your feedback and I'm glad that you liked the Lodge and found it comfortable despite there being no washing machine. There is only room in the lodge for either a dishwasher or washing machine and it comes down to personal preference. The lack of hoover is an oversight, I was under the impression that one had been put in the Lodge, I have since been there personally and resolved this. The Lodge is situated in the Tamar Valley which is an AONB and there are many beautiful dog walks in the vicinity. The park is dog friendly and dogs can be exercised within the park and they have recently positioned dog poo bins around, and I have noticed that there is one opposite Dart Lodge. I take on board your comment re the pot holes, I have brought this up with the maintenance team who are going to address this issue. Property Owner

About the location

CALLINGTON

Tavistock 9 miles; Launceston 11.5 miles; Plymouth 14.6 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.
