The property

This spacious, semi-detached holiday chalet rests within the peaceful grounds of Honicombe Manor Holiday Park, set in Tamar Valley, a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

In a charming woodland setting, this property offers comfort throughout, providing a lovely base to return to each evening.

Furnished in a rustic style with pine furniture and a country style kitchen, it will appeal to those seeking a spell in the countryside, yet with easy access to the Cornish coast.

Allow the chef of the group to get acquainted in the kitchen, fitted with all the essential appliances and pick up some fresh Cornish produce to a hearty feast.

Relax on the plush leather sofas as you ease into the evening, contemplating where to visit next, or step out onto the balcony and take in far reaching countryside views.

As you tire, head downstairs to find the bedrooms, including a double and two twins, all neatly presented with wooded furniture and served by a shower room and bathroom.

Take advantage of the on-site facilities where you can work up a sweat in the gym or enjoy a refreshing swim in the indoor pool.

Also, family leisure access cards are provided for the nearby China Fleet Country Club, with facilities including swimming pool, sauna, badminton and squash, all included within the membership provided – an excellent venue for a family day out.

On-site there is a convenience store for grabbing essentials and a country pub, The Honicombe Arms, where you can refuel after a day of exploring the local area.

The surrounding area provides plentiful walks close by, plus a couple of miles is the National Trust property of Cotehele; a beautiful estate by the River Tamar with woodland walks and formal gardens.

For the less energetic, take a train from Gunnislake to Plymouth, enjoying the spectacular scenery of the Tamar valley as it passes over the Calstock viaduct on the way.

After all this sightseeing, make your way back to 18 Tamar and recharge for the next adventure.

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 Morwellham 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?
