Callington 3.7 miles.
This deceptively spacious holiday chalet is within the grounds of Honicombe Manor Holiday Park, set in the Tamar Valley, a designated AONB.
With far-reaching views of the Cornish countryside, this beautifully presented chalet offers modern and spacious accommodation to please the whole family.
The upside-down arrangement gives a light and airy feel to the open-plan first floor living space, which opens out onto a veranda.
With large, plush sofas which have a homely feel, and a TV with a DVD player so you can keep up to date with all your favourite shows.
With the added benefit of a well-equipped kitchen, what better place to spend time with the family cooking local Cornish food, and relaxing on the veranda with a glass of wine and admiring the views of The Tamar Valley.
There are three ground floor bedrooms together with a ground floor bathroom and separate shower room.
Choose from an elegant fitted bath or a large walk-in shower to start your day.
The on-site leisure facilities are plentiful, with indoor and outdoor heated swimming pools, tennis, a soft play area, and a restaurant and bar and woodland walks close by along the pretty Cornish lanes.
Along the road is a donkey sanctuary and a couple of miles away is the stunning National Trust property of Cotehele, a beautiful estate by the River Tamar with a country house, set in glorious gardens and a quayside visitor centre.
The Tamar Trails centre offers a host of activities for families including tree surfing, zip wires, mountain biking, falconry and gentle nature trails.
For the less energetic, take a train from Gunnislake to Plymouth, through the spectacular scenery of the Tamar Valley as it passes over the enormous Calstock viaduct on the way to the vibrant marine city, with the National Maritime centre, theatres and historic areas full of eateries at the Barbican and Royal William Yard waterside areas.
After all this sightseeing, you can return to 32 Tamar to relax and unwind in comfort.

About the location
Tavistock 9 miles; Launceston 11.5 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.
Note: On-site leisure facilities closed 25th December and 1st January only.
