The Tamar Valley, which is a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, lies on the border between Devon and Cornwall and offers an ideal holiday location for exploring this lovely part of Britain. Set in a wooded valley and with views over Dartmoor, the houses are situated on a pleasant quiet holiday site near to the small town of Callington. Lot's to do for all the family whether you choose to go out to explore or stay close to 'home'.Close to both Dartmoor and Bodmin Moor, this is an ideal base for walkers. It is also ideally situated for exploration of the lovely Cornish coastline, including Tintagel and Boscastle to the north, and Looe, Polperro and Fowey to the south. Close by is the beautiful National Trust property of Cotehele, with views from the gardens over the Tamar Valley and the pretty town of Calstock. Slightly further afield and near to the town of St Austell are the lost gardens of Heligan and the Eden Project. Plymouth, which lies to the south, can be reached by train on the Tamar Valley line. An interesting cultural centre and the county town of Devon, it offers all the usual amenities.

Guestbook comments from the owner
We have had a wonderful week in the lodge and have enjoyed beautiful Devon and Cornwall. I am always sad to leave the SouthWest as there is so much more I would love to see.

So yes, we would love to go back sometime.



Thanks for a great week in your house.

LOVELY HOLIDAY LODGE

  • 5 out of 5
A stunning setting, with some fantastic local walks - notably through rolling woodland down to the River Tamar and Calstock. We also went on day trips to the fishing villages of Fowey and Polperro (both less than an hour's drive away) where there are some spectacular coastal paths. Staff on site were very friendly and helpful, and the lodge itself was perfect - very comfortable, clean and well-equipped. We spent most of our time sitting out on the large first-floor balcony/terrace, up in the trees. Looking forward to returning later in the year.

EXCELLENT BASE FOR A LOVELY FAMILY SEASIDE HOLIDAY

  • 4 out of 5
The accommodation was spacious and relatively clean although the outside of the property especially the windows could have done with a bit of a spring clean,I understand that the site is in the middle of an ownership change and so would imagine that once it is complete this will get sorted out.However it did not detract from what turned out to be a very lovely holiday,the linen was clean and the kitchen well equipped,we didn't need to buy any equipment for once although we could have done with an extra t-towel!The front room was spacious,the tv was a nice size and the upstairs balcony a real bonus,especially on the evenings that the weather was good enough to sit out.The site was quiet but we could not use the facilities so cannot comment on these,having a bbq provided was great as was the spa bath,which my children loved and insisted on using every day!it was also good that they provided a stair gate although had there been a high chair it would have been even better!The lodge was centrally located and staying there enabled us to easily access main roads from which you could be in different parts of Cornwall quickly and easily.Whitsand Bay nearby was an excellent beach for kids and patrolled by life guards and the Eden Project was a really good family day out.Had a great time and would return another year as it was pretty good value for money

Owner's Response: Thanks for your comments. The site is now under new ownership and management so all on site facilities are available to our guests and the cleaning ( including windows and balcony ) is all of a very high standard. Welcome packs will be included from now on and we have put a high chair and stair gate in the lodge.

A GREAT PLACE

  • 5 out of 5
This summer my family and I visited the beautiful Tamar Valley and stayed in this lovely house for a week. Our family counts 7 people (5 children) and we absolutely enjoyed the spacious and well equipped lodge for both indoor and outdoor activities. The facillities on the site (swimming pool, tennis courts etc.) was not available during our stay of which we were informed by the owner of the house before our stay. We were offered a full refund and the opportunity to find a replacement but I am so glad we went ahead with the stay in Honicombe.
The house is perfectly situated for visits in both Devon and Cornwall. The beautiful old town of Tavistock is just a short drive up the road and worth more than just one visit. Liskeard is also a lovely town to see and Plymouth is nearby if you want the city.
The house is great, the surroundings excellent and the owner of the house is genuine and very helpful. I can fully recommend the Honicombe Lodge to anyone who wants a good base for hollidays in the Southwest of England. Thanks for a lovely stay, we will be back some day...

GOOD BASE

  • 4 out of 5
This has to be a review based on the property itself and not the site. The property is good, clean, tidy, well equipped and ideal for a family with the two bathrooms. Plenty of hot water, clean bedding and towels and comfy beds.
The site however is poor but I understand that it will soon be under new management and this should make a massive difference. Currently it is tired, overgrown, dangerous on the steps and poorly maintained. Don't let this put you off and this lodge is worth a visit and despite the awful weather we had a good time.

Owner's Response: We have spent a lot of time and money on the lodge and it's nice to hear that it is appreciated. The site itself is in a lovely setting and when the new management takes over at the end of June it will benefit from major investment and improvement. In the meantime we are offering holidays at less than half the brochure price for the whole of 2012.

WONDERFUL HOLIDAY HOME - WE'LL BE BACK!

Wonderful holiday home - we'll be back!
  • 5 out of 5
We enjoyed a wonderful week at this lovely holiday cottage. The house is spacious and well equipped with all mod cons, including flatscreen TV and stereo. The bathroom and shower room were clean and very modern, complete with fantastic jacuzzi bath! We spent much of the time outside on the lovely balcony and decked patio. The location is perfect for exploring the Tamar Valley, with the beautiful Cotehele National Trust site and the River Tamar just down the road. We also spent a couple of days on the coast at Fowey, Looe and Polperro - all within easy driving distance. We will be back next year - highly recommended!
