    “On arrival at number 48 we could not get WiFi so I sent a text as advised in the information folder but I never received a reply.”

    The password is incorrect in the folder and on the plaque on the wall. I tried to do some washing in the washer drier but the washing didn’t spin. I phoned the number and Kevin answered and kindly arranged for it to be collected and washed it for us and returned it the next day. The machine was not repaired whilst we were there but Kevin changed the towels for clean ones as we were unable to wash them ourselves.

    The password is incorrect in the folder and on the plaque on the wall. I tried to do some washing in the washer drier but the washing didn’t spin. I phoned the number and Kevin answered and kindly arranged for it to be collected and washed it for us and returned it the next day. The machine was not repaired whilst we were there but Kevin changed the towels for clean ones as we were unable to wash them ourselves. He also took another large load of washing and did it for us, which was very kind of him. The code in the folder for booking the swimming pool is out of date so we had to go to reception and were given a new code. The hob over the oven was difficult to work and the hobs kept turning off which was a pain. Maybe we were doing something wrong. On a more positive note the lodge was situated in a quiet and peaceful location.

    Thank you for your feedback and we are sorry that there was an issue with the washing machine. Which has now been repaired. We were pleased to hear that Kevin was able to help you with the washing! There was a recent change to booking the pool which is now updated in our info pack. The lodge is located on a quiet area and very peaceful. Kevin and our team are always there to help our guests. We do hope to see you again soon. Property Owner

This well-located home is ideal for families seeking a fun-filled stay together, groups of friends, or couples wishing to enjoy the gorgeous location, hot tub, and plenty of lovely places to visit in a calm area with beautiful views of the countryside. Outside of the major holiday season, this is a popular destination for walkers, with Dartmoor approximately 10 minutes away by car or bus. The Valley Lodges are a short walk from the on-site leisure facilities, which include indoor and outdoor heated swimming pools, a bar, a shop, and reception.

During the school holidays, there is a full schedule of entertainment as well as sporting activities such as archery, rock climbing, kayaking, and abseiling (seasonal, subject to availability, extra charges apply).

The property features reverse-level living, with the bedrooms and two bathrooms conveniently located on the ground floor.

The two twin bedrooms, which may accommodate adults or children, are tastefully designed and share a spotless shower room.

The master double room has an en-suite bathroom with a bath, electric shower, toilet, and hand basin that is completely white.

The Master Suite also features patio doors that open to a lovely little deck with a nice hot tub to relax in while sipping a glass of champagne.

As you ascend the stairs to the first level, you'll find a warm open-plan living area with a TV, DVD player, and Bluetooth sound bar.

A wide dining table with seating for up to 8 people invites you to sit and chat with friends and family over extended meals.

The soothing neutral design and enough comfortable seating make this the ideal area to kick back and relax, with a selection of books, games, and DVDs to keep you occupied when you're not out on an expedition.

The kitchen includes smart appliances such as a dishwasher and a washer and dryer.

Step out onto a beautiful covered balcony, where you can relax in the sun and have a great alfresco dinner on two two-seater Rattan Sofas and two Rattan Easy Chairs.

A huge glass patio table and six comfortable chairs are complemented by a large umbrella.

In the evening, solar lighting illuminates the entire area.

The beautiful Honicombe Manor Holiday Park is a fantastic place to base your stay, with all the amenities such as a shop and a bar, as well as a variety of activities such as both indoor and outdoor pools, a games room, a gym, tennis courts, and more, you could easily spend your holiday here.

Naturalists won't have to travel far to get their fix, as the lovely Tamar Valley AONB is only a short drive away, packed with fascinating attractions, breathtaking scenery, and charming tiny villages like quaint Calstock.

Dartmoor is also only a short journey away, with magnificent trails that can be reached by car or bus.

Tavistock, Callington, and Liskeard all have large stores that deliver to your holiday home.

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.
