Photos and Description of this 4 bedroom holiday home in Saint Ann's Chapel - Tamar Valley Lodge

Four bedroom lodge with balcony, on site leisure facilities & jacuzzi bath

Modern and comfortable alpine style lodge in a wooded setting with extended balcony and views over the beautiful Tamar Valley and Dartmoor beyond. Tamar Valley Lodge has full use of on-site facilities including indoor and outdoor ( outdoor pool in high season only ) swimming pools, small fitness room and free WiFi and table tennis room. We also provide our guests with 'pay as you go' membership for two adults and up to four children to use of the fantastic facilities at China Fleets Country Club just 20 minutes drive away from the lodge. The lodge has been fully re decorated for 2016 and is fully equipped, for up to 8 guests, and well furnished including leather sofa's, hi-fi with Ipod docking station, 32 inch full HD flat screen TV with Freeview and a DVD player, large dinning table and chairs, dishwasher, cooker with ceramic hob, microwave oven, etc. Bathroom comes complete with a whirlpool bath.

Bed linen, towels, cleaning, heating and on-site indoor and outdoor pool ( outdoor pool in high season only ) are included in the rental cost. Lodge has one double bed room with en-suite bathroom and three twin bedrooms, additional shower room, large upstairs balcony with wonderful views down the valley, lounge, dining area and kitchen.

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.

About Andy Holliday

We love this part of Cornwall and now that our children are grown up we try to spend as much time as we can staying in the lodge ourselves. Our children also still love it and visit whenever they can.

Andy Holliday purchased this house in 2002

Why Andy Holliday chose South East Cornwall

We love the setting, the views and the peace and quiet and the on-site swimming. Also a great base for exploring both Cornwall and Devon.

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.

The Accommodation was very nice and unusual with the bedrooms on the ground floor

  • 4 of 5

The site was quite and friendly some of the gardens could do with maintenance. The main reception shop provides basic emergency supplies only and the restaurant was closed due to ill staff. The indoor swimming pool could have been open for longer hours ie. 8am to 7pm where as the current hours are 9am to 5pm. If you went out for the day you missed out on a swim in the evenings.

The lodge was lacking in some basic facilities such as a washing machine and tumble dryer. There needed to be a few more kitchen utensils such as decent frying pan as the one supplied was burnt on the inside therefore cooking left the food blackened. Sharper knives or a knife sharpener would have been useful as well. The bathroom extractor did not work and left the room steamy after use.

Wifi was very limited on site.

We did enjoy our stay and would definitely return.

Owner's Response: Good to hear that you enjoyed your stay. As advertised the lodge does not have a washing machine or tumble dryer but a service wash is available on the site. Sorry to hear that the new frying pan has got burnt, we will replace it (again!). The bathroom extractor fan does work, it needs to be turned on using the full cord by the door. A call to our housekeepers during your stay would have sorted this out. Andy & Pip Holliday.

July visit 2016

  • 4 of 5

Had a great week in Callington. We loved the jacuzzi bath in the house. We did miss having a washing machine. However, there was a wash service available on site. The living area was very comfy with 3 good sized leather couches. Loved the outdoor swimming pool on site it was clean and lovely and warm. The opening times could be longer though 9 to 5 didnt suit us, we would enjoy a swim in the evening after our day out and the site manager was very strict about times. The lodge was in a great location for touring the area.

A charming lodge in a woodland setting.

  • 4 of 5

We stayed here for a week at the end of May. We found the lodge clean, tidy and spacious.

The kitchen was very well equipped with everything a family of eight would need. We took our own cleaning cloths, tea towels, washing up liquid etc but these were here when we arrived.

The beds were comfortable and plenty of pillows were provided if necessary.

The lodge is in a small park with a park and tennis courts. There is a small bar and a restaurant and an indoor and outdoor pool which we used once. Both of the pools were very warm.

We visited the little donkey sanctuary with our 3 year old granddaughter which was a 10 minute walk up the lanes. We really liked it there, it was a sunny day and we took a picnic and sat outside in the garden/play area. The donkeys could be groomed and walked if desired and there was a great indoor soft play area. A lovely place with no gimmicks or having to spend a fortune on rides!

The lodge supplied a folder with food/restaurant recommendations and places to see. Our daughters both ate at the pub in St Anne's Chapel and highly recommended it with great views of the valley to boot.

We were not very far from Looe beach (about 40 minutes) and also visited Polperro, Fowey and Polzeath.

The weather was fantastic and all in all a great holiday!

Beautiful surroundings!

  • 4 of 5

The lodge was perfectly comfortable for a family of 8. There's plenty of room and although we had cold weather we enjoyed are surroundings. The lodge is based in a good position for Devon and Cornwall and close to lots of things to do! There's plenty in Callington in the way of shops etc. The site is quite basic but we loved this it was quirky and the food in the restaurant was amazing! The indoor pool was a perfect size for the children and safe. Overall we had a brilliant stay as it was a great base for traveling to the different things we wanted to do. I understand the site is under some renovation to tidy it up a little but personally I felt it was find for what we needed...somewhere to sleep and have a swim followed by a lovely meal. Very friendly staff as well.

Honicombe Valley Lodge

  • 5 of 5

I recently stayed with my family in one of the the lodges; a lovely, spacious and quiet place with views across the valley to Dartmoor. The people there told me that they had recently taken over from the previous management and were making lots of improvements to the pools (indoor and outdoor), the gym, restaurant and bar. The staff were really friendly and helpful and the atmosphere around the site perfect for families and couples. Within walking distance is a donkey sanctuary with softplay centre attached, my daughter loved it so much we went twice in the week. A short drive away are beautiful beaches, Dartmoor and East Cornwall, with the town of Callington close by (8 min drive) for shops and amenities. The lodge itself has four bedrooms, two bathrooms and a large living room and kitchen area and balcony, perfect for a very relaxed and enjoyable holiday in one of the most beautiful parts of the country. Recommend!!

Fantastic family holiday

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful family lodge with a nice distance from neighbours and lovely views. The site has enough to keep younger children occupied (park, small games room, outdoor and indoor pool) and is around 35min drive to Whitsands Bay – be careful as a long walk down a steep path.

The lodge is clean and spacious (we had 4 adults and 3 children) with everything you could need for a relaxing week away.

I would not hesitate to book with Andy again 
