The property

Gunnislake 2.5 miles.

This detached Alpine lodge is set on a hillside within the peaceful grounds of Honicombe Manor holiday resort, in the Tamar Valley near Gunnislake.

Surrounded by trees rich in wildlife, this cottage offers beautifully-presented accommodation in an upside down style, ideal for a large family.

There is an open plan living area on the first floor, leading to a sunny balcony with comfy seating and views over open countryside.

The on-site facilities include seasonal indoor and outdoor heated swimming pools and tennis courts.

Just a couple of miles away is Cotehele, a National Trust house, gardens and historic quay by the River Tamar, with woodland walks and formal gardens.

Families will love the train along the scenic Tamar Valley line from Gunnislake to Plymouth, perhaps stopping off at Calstock viaduct en-route.

There is a donkey sanctuary along the road from this cottage, and the mining village at Morwhellam Quay, used as the location for the Edwardian Farm TV series, is also close by.

This part of Cornwall is designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and is a World Heritage Site for its mining history.

After all this sightseeing you can return to this Honicombe Manor cottage to relax and unwind.

About the location

GUNNISLAKE

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 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?.
