  • "Great property, modern and clean."

    Onsite swimming pool and pub were great too. Haribo and cookies on arrival were a big hit with the kids! Would definitely book again

  • "The property was lovely, spacious well equipped, I raised the issue about door handles being loose which they offered to come and do through my stay, I declined hope the fix them now."

    The single beds could do with being replaced. I would stay again and recommend the property.

    Thank you for your comments and bringing this to our attention. We can confirm that the door handles have now been changed and the bed has since been replaced. We appreciate your recommendations and look forward to welcoming you back. Property Owner

    Definitely a awesome week, the house was beautiful and had all the amenities, if you are considering this place you should definitely choose it, and the pub 100 yds down the lane is friendly and the food was brilliant

  • "As a family of 3 with 2 dogs we had a fantastic time."

    The accommodation was absolutely fabulous. All very modern with all appliances and amenities you could wish for. The cottage was spotless on arrival. The on site amenities were excellent and very well organised and we were made to feel very welcome/ My family will definitely be booking this cottage again.

  • "The only reason I gave a slightly lower mark for the Comfort score was because, 1 out of the 2 single beds - the one I chose first out of the two to sleep on for the first few days, was so soft that i nearly disappeared in it when I sat on it!"

    And it wasn’t great for turning round on in the middle of the night either... However, I swapped over to the other single, the one that was by the window, midway through our week’s stay - and it was superb. That one was nice and firm and much more conducive for tossing and turning - which I tend to do lots of through the night! I would also just like to add though, my mum said her double bed was fantastic. AND the leather sofa and dining table were both stunning to look at and exceptionally comfortable to sit on :) p.s. the food and the staff at The Honicombe Manor Park were absolutely fantastic. So helpful, so friendly, very approachable. And of all the meals I had during our stay on our many excursions out around the Devon and Cornwall area, the best 2 I had all week were actually the 2 meals I ate at the Honicombe Manor Clubhouse on the site! I shook the chef’s hand Sunday night and told him that the food was superb!

  • "The site reception gave us clear directions how to get to our lodge."

    The lodge is generally very well equipped, the only thing is that it would have been good to have more knives, but this didn't impact our holiday. We were very pleased with the accommodation and thoroughly enjoyed our holiday.

  • "We had a lovely time at Little Jack's at Honnicombe Manor."

    It is a very well presented little cottage that was very clean and had most things we could want. It was clean, comfortable and well maintained set in a nice location and had easy access to most of the activities on the site. There is a fairly decent internet connection in the cottage although it did slow at peak times of the day and with 3 of us using it (better than most holiday cottages I've been to though). There were unfortunate limitations on accessing things like the swimming pool and gym as well as the games room being closed, but this was due to Covid 19 restrictions which were unavoidable. You had to book to use either pool and the gym as well as having to prebook to go into the restaurant. The location is great with a restaurant/pub on site as well as a small shop. A big Tesco is only 3 miles away and another supermarket in the opposite direction not much further than that. There are a few sites of interest such as Cotehele manor and activity centres such as Tamar Trails within a couple of miles and good driving links to most of Cornwall and Devon. I recommend you go and have a wander to the top of nearby Kitt Hill for a look around. For the mandatory cornish pasties there is a small factory shop in nearby Callington for 'Over the top pasties' that has recently won awards and was absolutely delicious. The only slight criticisms I would make, and these are 'slight'; We could have done with a spare set of towels for us all and a wok to do easy one pot family meals. The water pressure isn't always amazing, but was always good enough and we had no issues with water temperature or the water going off which is mentioned in other reviews.

  • "Could not fault the property."

    Really comfortable and spacious. My problem was parking. There is no parking alongside the property or it seens anywhere on the site. There were two spaces a short distance away i was lucky enough to get one when i arrived. I have two disabled people in my party and i have bronchiectasis which makes me short of breath. The property was up hill from the space. I have a lot of kit to unload on my own my wife and daughter can't help. My daughter has a mobility scooter but can walk a short distance. My wife us totally blind with a guide dog. The rest of the week i had to park much further away. So in short. Not suitable for me or anyone with mobility problems. We will not be returning. It was good to have a break after the lockdown but in futute i will make sure i can park by the property when i book self catering

  • "Little Jacks is a lovely clean and modern place to stay with all home comforts."

    We did feel that the mattresses were far too soft for our liking and the double bed is on the small side (for our preference) which unfortunately didn’t aid a good nights sleep. The only other issue is the water on the holiday site causes the water to stop at random points in the day and makes showering unpredictable, but this is the water supply and effects all the homes on the park and is unavoidable we were told. We loved the pools on the site but were unimpressed with the food in the on site restaurant. Overall it is a very friendly holiday park and was in a very beautiful part of Cornwall.

  • "On the Thursday before we were due to arrive on the Saturday, we received a phone call to say the house would be unavailable until the Sunday."

    This was completely unacceptable to us because of other arrangements based on a Saturday arrival and I protested vigorously. On the Thursday evening I booked a hotel for the Saturday night (not cancelable) so we would at least have somewhere to sleep - only to receive a message later to say the house would be ready for us after all on the Saturday. I shall never use Sykes Cottages again and will not recommend them in any way because of the distress and expense caused to us.

    Thank you for your comments, we are sorry to hear that you were so disappointed. The owners advised us on the Thursday lunchtime that due to Coronavirus they were having difficulty preparing the property for your Saturday arrival and hoped that you would be able to delay your stay by 1 day with an appropriate refund. Although you initially accepted, we understand you later changed your mind and advised this wasn’t a possibility. We therefore liaised with the owners and that same evening were able to confirm the owner had been able to make arrangements to have it ready for you on the Saturday as originally booked. We are sorry that this set of events led to such distress on your part and we apologise for the inconvenience. We do hope that once you arrived you were able to settle in and enjoy a relaxing holiday. Property Owner

The property

This whitewashed single storey cottage is positioned on Honicombe Manor Holiday Park in the Tamar Valley, which straddles the border between Devon and Cornwall, near the market town of Callington.

Nestled within over 20 acres of rolling countryside, near the market town of Callington, this well-presented accommodation is ideal for a small family or a couple looking to escape the hustle and bustle of everyday life and retreat to a beautiful region of the country.

Arranged all on ground floor, climb a couple of steps into the open-plan living room, which has been thoughtfully designed with seamless, modern units and a bright uplifting feel.

Cook up a delicious meal in the kitchen, which comes with all the necessities you might require.

Relax on the sofa after a long day of adventure and enjoy a hot drink in front of the Smart TV, or gather around the dining table for a board game or tasty dinner.

At the end of the day you have two bedrooms; a double and a sunny twin room, each served by the tiled bathroom.

Enjoy a hot soak in the tub and unwind into the evening or use the rainfall shower to wake yourself up each morning.

Summer evenings can be indulged with a drink on the picnic bench outside, enjoying your surroundings with the company of your loved ones.

Make the most of the on-site facilities available to you; there is an indoor and outdoor heated swimming pool, tennis courts, a well-stocked bar and a kid’s outdoor park.

The Tamar Valley AONB Centre is located in the small nearby village of Drakewalls, offering information on local places to visit.

This area is famous for its mining heritage landscape, with the Tamar River meandering through a patchwork of green fields.

There is walking and cycling in abundance for those who like getting out and about, as well as the National Trust's Cotehele and Cotehele Mill and Morwellham Quay taking you back in time with its copper mine museum.

Explore the area by boat on the Tamar Passenger Ferry or you can ride the train on the scenic Tamar Valley Railway Line.

You also have Launceston in the north, with its Norman castle, Tavistock to the east, known as the gateway to Dartmoor and Saltash to the south famous for its Brunel Bridge.

There is plenty to do in this wonderful region, so choose this base for your next holiday in southwest England.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £100.

About the location

CALLINGTON

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.
