  • "Unfortunately the Internet did not work despite sending 2 e mails to Sykes and speaking to someone directly on site."

    A welcome / instruction pack would be useful.

  • "None of the bedroom doors fit their frames and they dont have door handles either."

    The bathroom door hadca handle but could nit close because it was also too big for the frame. There was no hot water or heating. No manuals to enable me to turn hot water on. The house was six person but there were not enough cups or glasses. There were lots of lamps but no sockets for many to be plugged in and used. It was all very bizarre. I have no idea how the owners think no door handles are acceptable. Our documents said check in was from 3pm but the cleaners thought it was 4pm and had only just arrived as we did. This is not acceptable.

    We are sorry to hear about this, we would have liked to have helped you during the stay, but unfortunately we were not contacted, and neither was Sykes, so we had no opportunity to assist you or recitify any issues raised. The Wifi was available during the stay. Property Owner

The property

Tucked away in Callington near the rural village of Gunnislake is this homely reverse-level cottage, Buddy’s Place.

Set in the shared complex of Honicombe Holiday Village, welcoming six guests and three four-legged friends, Buddy’s Place is the ideal home-from-home from which to explore the treasures of Cornwall.

Cross the threshold into your new abode to discover three ground-floor bedrooms, appointed with either double or twin single beds as well as plenty of storage to house your belongings, they provide a peaceful haven where you can snuggle up with loved ones or get lost in a book.

Ascend the stairs to a bright and airy open-plan living space where you can host, prepare, and enjoy meals with the whole family ahead of unwinding on the sumptuous sofas in front of the TV.

If you prefer to dine alfresco, step outside onto your private balcony to relish a feast as the sun sets and indulge a late-night tipple before another day of adventures.

Wash away the day in a generously-sized ground-floor bathroom with a long soak or revitalising shower before drifting off to a nights refreshing embrace.

For a splendid retreat promising a fun-filled holiday in Cornwall, stay at Buddy’s Place.

Note: This property can be booked with Ref. 1120232 together sleeping up to 10 guests.

Buddy's Place And Patch's Place

Situated in an elevated position in the Honicombe Holiday Park on the edge of the Tamar Valley AONB in Callington in Cornwall is this lovely pairing of properties, Buddy’s Place and Patch’s Place. Boasting a large, shared field, private balconies with furniture where you can while the days away with a glass of wine, reverse-level interior and access to on-site facilities, Buddy’s Place and Patch’s Place provide the idyllic spot to unwind and spend quality time with loved ones within the stunning surroundings of Cornwall. With a host of walks, cycle paths and fun-filled attractions, as well as an on-site shop and pub on your doorstep, you won’t have to venture far to fill your days here; The Tamar Valley Donkey Park rests less than a stone’s throw away from the properties where you can get up close and personal with some of their furry residents including pigs, rabbits, guinea pigs and of course, donkeys. If you prefer to immerse yourself in history, spend the day touring the grounds of the National Trust owned Cotehele, a Tudor House with medieval roots and a working mill on a historic quay set within a magnificent garden with valley views. For impressive views of granite structures, visit Foggintor Quarry ahead of experiencing Dartmoor Prison Museum. Further afield in Golitha Falls National Nature Reserve traverse the vast expanse of the stunning countryside and be sure to relish the unspoiled beauty at Golitha Falls waterfall; alternatively, head north to Moor View Alpacas or uncover the naturally formed tower of the infamous Cheesewring (Stowes Hill). Well-located to also stop off in the popular destinations of Plymouth, Looe and Polperro, Buddy’s Place and Patch’s Place make the ideal base for families and friends alike to bask in the irresistible tranquillity of Cornwall.

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

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.
