    “Amazing, home from home...if home had a hot tub”

    First of all, the cottage is exactly the same as the pictures. Clean, fresh and modern throughout with lots of room. There were plenty of pots and pans etc in the well equipped kitchen. The hot tub was serviced every day and was amazing. Site staff seemed to go above and beyond to make sure we were OK. In terms of location, we were at the bottom of a steep hill which was fine for us but prob not ideal for wheelchair users or people who struggle but was ideal for us being slightly out the way ...

The lodge came with access to the facilities on site via a swipe card. We found the gym and pool quite nice and the bar had some entertainment. This is ideal for people who want a bit of an escape, however you are only a short drive away from more lively areas. Was just what we wanted and will be booking again for next year very shortly. Thank you. 100% recommend.

The property

This attractive holiday lodge is set amongst woodland in the beautiful grounds of Honicombe Manor Holiday Village in the hamlet of St Ann's Chapel near Gunnislake.

In a secluded quiet setting on the edge of the site, this cottage is a perfect getaway for countryside lovers and birdwatchers.

Providing modest comfy accommodation with an upside down arrangement to take advantage of the stunning outlook from the open plan living room and balcony, the cottage feels cosy and welcoming.

With an on-site swimming pool, tennis court and walks from the doorstep to nearby NT Cotehele alongside the sweeping Tamar River, there is something to occupy the whole family.

For the less energetic, there is a picturesque train journey to Plymouth from the local station, where passengers enjoy the spectacular scenery of the Tamar Valley, an AONB, on the way.

Children will love the donkey sanctuary within walking distance or maybe visit Morwhellham Quay where The Edwardian Farm was filmed, which is a Victorian mining village with lots of activities within the living history theme.

Dartmoor National Park is a short drive away providing walks, historic legends and plenty of ponies.

This cosy lodge provides an ideal base to explore the well-known Tamar Valley.

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 Morwhellam 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?

Note: The internet can be slow in the property.
