  • "We were a group of 5 adults 2 with severe learning disabilities one of which had cerebral palsy and epilepsy."

    The accommodation was perfect having the 3 bedrooms on the ground floor with the bathroom and toilet and the added bonus of another toilet with shower also on the ground floor. The 4th bedroom was on the first floor which gave my support carers privacy. Tbe open plan kitchen, dining area and lounge was spacious and bright with the added bonus of a balcony with views. We didn’t have children but if you do you could see the play park from your kitchen and lounge window. We felt totally at home and it was a quiet and peaceful setting. Everything you needed was there to guarantee a comfortable stay. We have a very high standard and we were happy with what we found. We cleaned through thoroughly before leaving it would only of needed fresh towels and linen to be ready for the next guests that would hopefully enjoy and appreciate this property. Thank you very much

    Maria thank you so much for the stunning review. I'm very pleased to say you would be welcome back anytime. Property Owner

  • "There was a damp smell to the property."

    The carpet in the hallway needs replacing due to a previous leak from the bathroom. I would definitely visit this sight again just unfortunately not this property.

  • "Check in time was pushed back from when I originally booked to allow for extensive covid cleaning."

    When we arrived there was chocolate on the floor by sofa (not a dogs friend) sweets tipped out on the floor of the cupboard a box of condoms in 1 bedroom and after eight mint wrappers down the side of a bed. Table had sticky marks on and the fireplace heater had something on it too so definitely not been extra cleaned. The toilet seat was broke, 2 of radiators were hanging of the wall the clothes airer was broken and the shower was leaking out on to hallway wall and carpet making it smell damp. It's advertised as off road parking for 2 cars we struggled to park the one car! The site itself was nice the kids enjoyed the pool, tennis and games room and the food was really nice in the restaurant and all the staff was friendly and helpful

    Our stay at 25 Tamar Cottage, was slightly spoilt when no vegetable knife was available, so we had to purchase one, but my main concern was because of Covid 19, my sons bed did not have a protective mattress cover and there were none on the pillows in any of the rooms,

    For a cottage that sleeps 8 the bathrooms are tiny and nowhere to put anything even hooks on the doors would be a start could do with new curtains at all the windows

  • "Foot path leading to cottage is muddy."

    Would have preferred complimentary toiletries

    Thank you for your feedback. We hope you enjoyed your stay at 25 Tamar Cottage. We're sorry that the path was muddy on arrival. It may be helpful to explain that the grounds of the park are managed by the on-site management team, so the owner has no influence over the upkeep of this area. However, she will of course feed this back to their management team. Please note that whilst the owner does provide some complimentary items, such as toilet paper, toiletries are not included due to the accommodation being self-catering. Kind Regards, The Customer Relations Team Property Owner

  • "The bathrooms were so small no room to move."

    There was no heating in the.m and nowhere to hang a towel or dressing gown. Nowhere to put anything really. Not even coat hook. Seriously cold in them. You should say it's not suitable for disabled people. You advertised the bedrooms being on two floors but both bathrooms were ground floor next to each other. Created terrible problems on the stairs.

    Thank you for your comments. We’re sorry to hear that you felt the bathrooms were too small. Unfortunately the owner is not able to extend this space but we do feel the photographs on the website accurately reflects the size of the space. Although we can never 100% guarantee that our properties will be suitable individuals with disabilities, we are happy to pose any questions to our property owner so that we can accommodate our guest’s needs. Kind Regards, The Customer Relations Team Property Owner

  • "It was quite wet week and The pool, games room and gym where great."

    Loved the bar area for meals and quiz night etc. My 8yr old to my 67 yr old all very happy. Problem with bulb but they came out and sorted it from reception. Staff all helpful and great base to explore from. Down side very small bathrooms with tiny basins but ok for a holiday.

The property

Situated on the Honicombe Manor resort in over 20 acres of glorious countryside on the Cornwall/Devon border, is 25 Tamar Cottage.

Positioned just 3 miles inland from the pretty riverside village of Calstock in the glorious Tamar Valley, this reverse-level accommodation offers the ideal break for families and friends.

Set over two floors, this modern abode takes advantage of the views from the bright and airy open-plan living room on the first floor, which can further be enjoyed from the balcony.

The dual aspect windows allow lots of natural light into the space and soft furnishings, together with TV, DVD player and a selection of books and games ensure you can enjoy some quality time with your loved ones.

Home-cooked meals can be prepared in the modern kitchen and there is a dining table for you to get together and catch up over a delicious feast.

There are four bedrooms for you to retire to at the end of the evening; 1 double, 1 twin/double zip/link and two twins, followed by the sleek family bathroom and shower room.

Within a short walk from the cottage are the resort's leisure facilities, for which passes are provided by the owner, with both indoor and outdoor swimming pools as well as a gym and tennis courts.

For the young ones a playground is set right opposite and overlooked by the cottage, making the location perfect for families.

With all the on-site activities and walking and cycling trails right from the door, there will always be so much to do here.

The many nearby villages are well worth visiting such as Calstock home to the notable viaduct, as is the beautiful National Trust house Cotehele.

A relaxing holiday home in a good touring location with excellent facilities.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £150.

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?
