  • "Amazing place to stay."

    Close to the pub and swimming pool. The cleanliness was amazing and all the little touches were lovely. The whole property was so good and there was nothing more you could need. Had email before hand with information about the property and local area which was brilliantly informative. Would highly recommend.

    Thank you for the great feedback and review Darren, we are so happy to hear you enjoyed your stay and we hope to welcome you and your family again in the future. Best wishes, Sian & Des Property Owner

    ..the onsite pub/restaurant provided good meals and we made full use of the games room, the added extra of an Elvis night was a real treat

    Dear Katie, thank you for your review and we’re delighted that the lodge exceeded your expectations. We always want guests to be comfortable and have everything they need for a relaxing break. We look forward to welcoming you in the future. With warmest wishes, Sian & Des. Property Owner

    There is a large balcony on the first floor to sit out on, which is largely screened by trees, so it felt private. I would certainly stay there again.

  • "We could not fault 17 Valley Lodges."

    We stay in a lot of holiday homes & the owners of this one had thought of absolute everything!! It was immaculately clean & beautifully presented. The location is ideal especially for families, a 1 minute walk to the indoor pool & even less to the outdoor pool. The pub, recreation & games room again is all just a minute away. We used the football area & tennis courts - the lodge even provided tennis rackets & balls. This was not a negative for us but if you had mobility issues the site is pretty hilly & you cannot park directly outside the lodge. You are just a 30 second walk to your car on a footpath but just worth a mention. We would highly recommend it here. We have 2 boys of 6 & 8 & it was brilliant that the pool depth was a maximum of 1.1m depth. It just gave the younger one real freedom in the pool. It’s a brilliant family holiday we loved it. Thanks so much!!!

    As soon as we walked in we were happy very nicely decorated and very comfortable and very clean. We went upstairs and there was a welcome basket on the table with snacks in the kitchen there was tea bags coffee and sugar there was milk in the fridge and a bottle of wine. The outside space was amazing on the upstairs balcony is a large table where we ate our dinner overlooking the pond it was just bliss i will recommend this lodge to anyone you wont be disappointed it really is a home from home.A big thank you to the owners for a lovely stay.

    Dear Stuart, Thank you for the review of 17 Valley Lodges. We are so pleased to hear that you enjoyed your stay and were able to enjoy dinners outside. We love staying there with our family, and we’re glad you found it comfortable and a home from home. With very best wishes, Sian & Des. Property Owner

  • "Excellent property in line with the Sykes recommendation."

    Very comfortable and the treats were a nice touch and very welcome. The only slight negative was that the fan in the ensuite bedroom came on in the night without any warning but this was the only suggestion we could make. Many thanks for a great place to stay

    Felt like living in a tree house with the living area and balcony upstairs! Much appreciated welcome pack on arrival. Close enough to the pool and other facilities for an easy walk. Really nice place to chill out and well positioned to explore Cornwall and Devon.

  • "Home was comfortable and beautifully decorated."

    The grout in both bathrooms needed deep cleaning and the inside of the fridge was stained. The deck is beautiful but covered in cobwebs and leaves. The outdoor furniture wasn’t comfortable. The description of the bed said “super king size” but it was only a double.

    Dear Liz, thank you for your review. The lodge is professionally cleaned before every changeover and had received a deep clean 4 days before your stay, with a review 2 days before and a further inspection the day before your arrival. You can be assured that all cobwebs and leaves are removed during every clean, and were additionally also swept away the day before you arrived, but as the lodge resides in a woodland and with a beautiful oak tree beside it, a few leaves can fall overnight. There are cushions provided for the outdoor furniture mentioned in your welcome email and the welcome guest information in the lodge, we hope you were able to avail of them during your stay? Thank you pointing out the error on the Sykes listing, it is actually a king size bed not a super king. We have noted your comments regarding the fridge and silicone and these are being attended to. Finally, per the text you sent me, we are so delighted you had a lovely family stay. and enjoyed the break. Warmest regards Sian & Des Property Owner

  • "We had a very nice staycation here."

    The place was lovely and looked clean and tidy, and had some welcoming additions when we arrived. It was very much like home from home. All the beds were very clean with fresh bedding, our only issue was the double mattress was a bit too firm for our liking but that is down to individual preference ( its not a complaint). My daughter and son said their mattress was perfect

    Thank you for your positive feedback Lisa. We can look at offering a softer mattress topper for the double mattress. Glad you had a good stay. All best wishes, Sian & Des Property Owner

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?
