    “We stayed at the property for 7 nights.”

    When we first entered the property ,it looks recently done but what welcomed us was a nasty smell (dirty mop perhaps). The smell went away after we bought some scented candles and air fresheners. The other reasons for poor rating are a) noisy plumbing and floorboards b) no WiFi for a day (our guess is unpaid bill as the WiFi stopped working on 31st and was restored when we complained) ...

    Thank you very much for your feedback, we’re glad that overall you had a good stay in Cornwall and were lucky to enjoy some good weather. We’re sorry it wasn’t perfect though. It can’t have been pleasant to arrive to a nasty smell and we’re pleased this dissipated quite quickly. We’re sorry that the Wi-Fi didn’t work on a day, but can confirm this absolutely wasn’t connected to an unpaid bill. It should have been working and we can only put this down to a temporary glitch. We don’t advertise a dishwasher, so whilst we know they’re useful to have, guests shouldn’t be expecting one. We’re pleased you enjoyed the holiday park and glad you were able to make full use of the facilities. We hope we’ll see you again soon! 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.
