Great views from sun terrace: Loxley Lodge is a privately owned holiday cottage in St Ann's Chapel, near Callington. The lodge is situated in the beautiful Tamar Valley backing onto National Trust land. If you are lucky it is possible to see deer running free in the field and buzzards flying over head. We are ideally situated on the Cornwall/Devon border which has been designated an area of outstanding natural beauty. Positioned within 30 acres of woodland, and with Dartmoor and Bodmin in close proximity, you could not wish for a better base in which to enjoy your holiday. It is the ideal location for a 360° tour of Cornwall and Devon. With over 300 beaches in Cornwall, you will never be more than 16 miles away from one. Make sure you visit Whitsand Bay - as seen on Cornwall with Caroline Quentin and treat yourself to a great meal at The View restaurant.
Cornwall is one of the most diverse counties in the UK, you will always find something to do and something to see. Why not come and visit the Goose fair in nearby Tavistock in October or learn about the mining heritage at nearby Morwellham Quay.
With many wonderful tourist attractions near the park, you can rest assured that you will never be at a loss for things to do. Within a short distance from the lodge is the famous pannier market town of Tavistock and bustling city of Plymouth. No visit to Cornwall is complete without taking a trip to The Eden Project or The Lost Gardens of Heligan. Why not venture to the north or south coasts to explore their diverse coastlines and attractive towns? Or perhaps you would prefer to walk or cycle and take in the breathtaking scenery? From sports activities and tourist attractions to site seeing, there's something here for everyone. Loxley Lodge is a good base to stay when visiting cadets at the Torpoint / Plymouth Navel academy.
The Tamar Valley is a true hidden treasure - you have to see it to love it ! With Cotehele (NT) so near - a walk along the Tamar River to Calstock is a must. If you have never seen the amazing Christmas garland at Cotehele as featured on 'The one show' then put it on your list (December).
During your stay at Loxley Lodge, we would be delighted to offer you a complimentary, temporary membership pass for China Fleet Spa resort in Saltash (based on 4 adults and 8 children - any additional adults can go as guests). The resort is nearby and you may use any of their facilities, including the 18 hole golf course and driving range, 25 meter Swimming pool, sauna / jacuzzi and steam room, on a discounted 'pay as you play' basis. Check out the new Golf simulator (booking required). There are also Children holiday activities for the rainy days.
Within walking distance of the lodge is a Donkey sanctuary with indoor playbarn. Spend the day with the donkeys and see the great work that the park do with these delightfully gentle animals, fun for adults and children alike. You can even adopt one !
Travel over the border into Devon (3 miles) and view the delights of Dartmoor, visit the sights of filming the Stephen Speilberg film WARHORSE (with locations including Haytor, Combestone Tor, Venford Reservoir, Meavy and Sheepstor)
Free WIFI available in the Manor house, where you can enjoy a drink and a meal.
Devon and Cornwall has always been a favourite holiday destination for us and so in 2009 we decided to buy our own little piece of it. Since we have done so we have visited the area regularly and are always amazed at how many new places we discover. Being so near to the border with Devon we have the best of both worlds while being situated in one of the most unspoilt areas of Cornwall. We have been taking cottage holidays for the past 20 years and have often found things missing, we have attempted to add those things into our holiday home for our own enjoyment and that of our guests. We hope that you will enjoy our little piece of Cornwall as much as we do.
Loxley is a lovely property which is very adaptable for most needs. With a bathroom/shower room on each floor it is a perfect property for large families and 2 families travelling together. Similarly, it can be an intimate location for couples to enjoy all that the Tamar Valley has to offer. It is very well equipped for most needs and is handy for travel in all directions. If you have never stayed in the Tamar Valley now is the time to visit.
We love visiting our little part of Cornwall as It is adaptable with spectacular views over the valley towards Dartmoor. There is something here for everyone. We allow dogs at no extra charge (must have had their jabs please). Enjoy a glass of wine while sitting on the sun deck enjoying the spectacular views.
*** Loxley Lodge is only 25 minutes drive from Torpoint - so if you are looking for a place to stay while visitng your relatives at the Royal Naval bases of HMS Raleigh or HMS Vivid - this is the perfect choice. Also suitable for HMS Drake via the bridge / ferry. ***
