  • "Decent little holiday home, but disappointed with the fact that there was no washing machine and no launderette facilities on site."

    No welcome pack, although we did find some out of date information hidden away in the coffee table draw. Cleanliness was adequate!

  • "Very well equipped, even thiugh of the children which is very nice."

    The place was nice and clean and causy but the carpets were too dusty. There were dust pilled up under the beds. Main Bathroom had no extractor fan, steam could never get dryed out. The bathroom curtain kept falling which was very annoying. One of the kitchen chair was wobbly, we were scared it would break. But dust and carpets were the main issue.

    Thank you for taking the time to leave your feedback. We will speak to our housekeeping team to get these issues resolved. Property Owner

    Relatively basic, but clean, comfortable beds, quiet, relatively spacious for a small party. The site was basic, but some facilities. Sadly, couldn't use the games room, as the white pool balls were missing and also the table tennis ball.

    Our only moan was that on arrival the lodge smelt damp. After a through clean, air fresheners and a good airing the smell disapated. Other than this we hope to book to return next year.

  • "Excellent stay."

    Very clean and welcoming. With pools and facilities very close by there is almost no need to leave the site. That said there is plenty places to visit nearby. We requested a shower mat and one was provided very quickly, thanks for that. All in all a perfect stay for four old guys.

    It was clean and staff were very responsive. They also left a booklet which gave us information about different places that we can visit nearby. Each place had a short description which helped us to plan ahead. Very thoughtful!!!!

  • "This accommodation was all that you needed home from home feel and very comfortable beds and cosy living room/kitchen."

    The swimming pool and sauna was great to use we swam every day but we did use the shower facilities there after reading that the hot water didn’t last long in the bungalow but to be quite honest with the children it was just easier to shower straight after swimming so it suited us they were lovely and warm and kept very clean. The pub is absolutely beautiful the old hall is magnificent the staff were friendly. Also to point out Kevin the maintenance guy was so friendly and helpful (after having a heating problem he was straight on it and was sorted out) lots of lovely little places to go to we went into Looe, polperro, Galiath Falls were breathtaking and hearing the roar of the water! We shall definitely go back to this site the history surrounding it was amazing you can see the old pictures around the little arcade and pub which was really useful to read and the kids enjoyed looking it up as well couldn’t fault this at all it was all in all a wonderful week away!

    Flushing on both toilets were a little temperamental and make a funny blobbing blocked noise but we managed to sort them out ourselves. Beautifully maintained we were very comfortable.

    It had everything you could need provided. The only thing we did miss was WiFi, but it was available in the main building. We would definitely book again and would recommend it to friends and family. Great value for money

  • "We were unaware that there was no WiFi as this was obscured on the Sykes site (not fault of owners)."

    Lodge very small and very dated decor. Settees have uncomfortable wooden bar across. Lighting in living area very poor. Second “bathroom” too small and shower door does not close so very claustrophobic. Swimming pool used for swimming lessons much of the time. No parking outside lodge so heavy bags have to be carried some way. There were only 3 of us and there was little space, would have been impossible for 6.

    There was a problem with dining chairs, as a family of six and only five chairs we could not have a meal together and the cutlery was quite dirty and had to be washed before we could use them,but apart from the things mentioned the kids really enjoyed everything about Manorcombe especially the swimming pools

    Thank you for your feedback. I'm sorry to hear about the missing chair. Had you let us know, we would have done our best to help. Your cleanliness comments have been passed onto the management company. Thanks again for your comments. Property Owner

  • "The bathroom needs attention as the sealant was dirty and the plug in the bathroom didn't work properly."

    This is a VERY basic no frills property - adequate for a week but I would not choose to stay in the property again. The seating area and kitchen diner was small for six people and the photos made it look bigger than it actually was. If you only use it as a base for visiting other places in Cornwall then its OK On the plus side was access to the swimming pool and a very reasonable pub on site but obviously booking was necessary as is everywhere you go this year

    Thank you for your comments. The issues with the bathroom will be passed onto the management company. We have also discussed rearranging the dining furniture to create more space. Thanks again for commenting. Property Owner

  • "The pool facilities and pub were excellent and we felt comfortable under the current circumstances however we did feel as though we were given false information as the accommodation was certainly not a cottage rather a standard holiday chalet."

    Because of this we did feel a little let down although staff we interacted with were very helpful and friendly. We also think better mapping of the site would be very helpful as we spent a long time trying to locate the chalet as the reception was shut upon our arrival.

    Thank you for taking the time to leave your feedback and we are pleased to hear that you enjoyed the on-site facilities. The property description does have 25 photos to view so you can be sure of the style of the property before you proceed with your booking. All guests are sent detailed directions which will help you to locate the property once you have arrived on site. Property Owner

  • "We had a lovely, relaxing break, despite very 'iffy' weather!"

    Including storm Francis! The cottage is laid out very well, & the kitchen spotless, & very well equipped. The view from the patio is great. As we are a 'mature' group, shallower steps would be better, also an additional step into the cottage, & the balustrade needs replacing. Also, although the property is very well insulated, the heating did not seem to be working, and a couple of evenings were a little chilly. These changes would raise this property from great, to exceptional. We would highly recommend this property, and it would be suitable for family groups of any age/mix. Thank you, in these difficullt times, it was so good to be able to stay in such a lovely , well presented property, and Cornwall is always beautiful. Well worth the long drive.

    We had to buy one, the owner did pay us back. This was a little inconvenient. The accomodation was not fully cleaned, most of the dishes, pans and cutlery needed washed before use. Honeycomb Manor is a nice location but the surroundings are a little tired looking. The price for the week was not value for money.

    The owner apologizes for the mattress disappearance and is glad that this was remedied with your help. The property generally scores well for cleaning and will take up the issue of the unclean crockery and cutlery with their management company Property Owner

The property

Just five miles from Callington you will find The Tamar Valley Resort situated in an area of outstanding natural beauty.

The Manorcombe Bungalows - a collection of single storey holiday cottages designed with simplicity and practicality in mind are at the heart of the resort.

Manorcombe 17 is a contemporary holiday home positioned away from the main thoroughfare in a beautiful leafy setting.

Guests here can unwind and relax in rural peace.

Step inside and discover a smart and comfortable open plan living room, combining plump leatherette settees and an armchair with bold stripe feature wall paper.

The kitchen is modern and well equipped and there is a small dining table to cater for six guests.

Leading from the open plan living room are three gorgeous bedrooms furnished with good quality beds and ample storage.

It is one of the few bungalows on-site to offer both a family bathroom and a separate shower room.

Outside is a private patio with garden furniture for alfresco meals.

There are communal lawns for ball games, tennis courts, a children's outdoor play area and swimming is possible year round in either the outdoor or indoor pool.

During the school holidays there is a busy programme of entertainment.

The site is well placed for guests looking to explore both Cornwall and Devon and has some fantastic local attractions nearby.

Within a short drive is the National Trust property, Cotehele, a Tudor house and valley garden estate set above the River Tamar.

A little further afield you can visit the glorious sandy beach at Whitsand Bay with dramatic scenery and sheer cliffs.

Equally accessible are Bodmin Moor and Dartmoor National Park with undulating moorlands and a myriad of historic sites and monuments - a rambler's dream.

Manorcombe 17 is perfect for families of all ages to enjoy the facilities on site and to explore the surrounding area.

About the location


Tavistock 9 miles; Launceston 11.5 miles; Plymouth 14.6 miles.

Callington is a Cornish market town, rich in mining heritage and overlooked by Kit Hill, the highest point in the area, donated to the people of Cornwall by Prince Charles to celebrate the birth of Prince William. From the top of Kit Hill there are fabulous views across south-east Cornwall as far as Plymouth Sound. Callington is set in the heart of the Tamar Valley, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, and offers a good selection of shops, inns and cafes, as well as being the home of Ginsters Cornish pasties. A few miles away, the quaint village of Calstock clings to the steep banks of the river Tamar and is dominated by the splendid Calstock Railway Viaduct, a giant 11-arched stone construction supporting one of Britain’s most picturesque branch lines running through the Tamar Valley. Other interesting places along the river are Cotehele, a beautiful historic house and gardens owned by the National Trust with a small quay and inn, and Morwhellam Quay, a theme park that staged a living history production for the BBC and where visitors can explore the rich mining heritage and watch blacksmiths, potters and craftsmen at work. The pannier market town of Tavistock is only nine miles from Callington and is well worth a visit on your way to a day’s walk on Dartmoor. A splendid base to explore south Cornwall and West Devon.
