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 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?

59 Valley Lodge is very comfortable. A lovely lounge with plenty of comfortable seating. The owner seems to have thought of everything you could need for a week away. We were all very pleased.

Mrs Wiseman, Harlow, October 2012

The lodges are very spacious so you don't feel crowded. There were 5 of us this time but we have had 8 in one of these lodges and there's still plenty of room.

Mrs Makin, Felixstowe, September 2012

Very helpful owner. Tea, milk, coffee all supplied made you very welcome.

Mr Wheble, Winchester, September 2012

Location well placed for visiting various local attractions.
