Set on a hillside within the peaceful grounds of Honicombe Manor Holiday Resort, enveloped by the beautiful Tamar Valley, is this delightful retreat.
Ideal for family and friends looking to get away and breathe a different kind of air, this Alpine lodge boasts upside down accommodation, making the most of the views from the first floor.
Walk through to a cheery set of bedrooms on ground floor, accompanied by a shower room and a Jack-and-Jill bathroom so you can get ready morning and evening with ease.
There is an open-plan living room upstairs, leading to a sunny balcony with comfortable dining furniture and views over open countryside; a wonderful place to sit with a drink or exchange pleasantries over dinner.
To the exterior, the grasses are bordered by trees and a quiet patio area rests with a hot tub.
Relax in the luxurious bubbles and listen to the sounds of the babbling brook running down the side of the garden nearby as you sip a glass of something cold.
The on-site facilities include indoor and a seasonal outdoor heated swimming pools and tennis courts, as well as use of the gym if you're feeling particularly energetic.

About the location

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 Morwhellam 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?
