    • tripadvisor rating
    • “We have just come back from a long weekend at 59 Valley Lodge and have had the most amazing time. The lodge has everything you can think of and has such a lovely homely feel to it. The owners have thought of everything with personal touches that made the place so welcoming. Without a doubt one of the bes kept lodges we have stayed in. The hot tub was a great way to relax in the evenings. Will definitely be returning for a longer stay so we can enjoy more of what Cornwall has to offer.”

The staff we met were very friendly and of course the hot tub was a lovely addition. The views were beautiful and I really thought the park was beautiful in autumn. Hope to be back again!”

    • “super lodge”
    • tripadvisor rating
    • “the lodge itself is lovely, very warm, spacious and very clean a nice bottle of bubbly as a welcome and the owners of the lodge could not have been more helpful. They were the good points, we were told by Sykes that all the amenities were open at the time of booking, with only a 3 weeks to go before we went they told us the restaurant and the bar were not open then 2 weeks to go there was no cycle hire and no site shop. the site is in the middle of nowhere so with out transport you were in a fix, further more there was no apology from Sykes, we have had 3 holidays with this company and it will be the last. If you are not to steady on your feet I would not recommend the site as it is very hilly and and lots of steps everywhere, the nearest pub/restaurant is about 3 miles away down very dangerous lanes not advisable to walk. The actual site is very run down and needs a good make over. I would have loved to give this a good report just for the sake of the owners of the lodge but as you see I can not.”

About the location


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?
