  • "The property was fine however when we booked the cottage we chose to spend well over a £100 more to have a hot tub."

    Upon usage of the hot tub we noticed a brown grime all around the edges and on the filter and once turned on you could see brown grimey bubbles all over the top. We used the phone number provided on the email confirmation and got through to Kevin, the maintenance person for the hot tub and he told us that the reason for the brown grimey filth in the water is due to the fact that the hot tub is filled with water from a bore hole and not from water from South West water. So we couldn't use the hot tub once as it was filthy and disgusting. What a strange thing not to fill it with proper water! If we had known this we would NEVER have booked this cottage. To be totally honest we would like our money back for the difference between a cottage with a hot tub and one without as we could not use this hot tub. With the exception of the hot tub the cottage was okay. It was quite dirty on the outside, balconies not swept and windows thick with green grime. Things that are quite easy to rectify. We have numerous photos to back up what we are saying and we were so annoyed we left early. Please let us know where to send the photos and we look very forward to hearing your response!!

    Thank you for completing your feedback, we have spoken with both the owner of this property and the maintenance man, who is certified with BISHTA enabling him to ensure all hot tubs on the site are up to HSG regulations. It has been reported that the reason for the brown bubbles following your usage of the tub is due to your party using the facility without showering first. The hot tub guidance book left at the property for all customers states that each person must shower before using the hot tub. The water for the site is a Private water supply which is tested annually (as advertised on the property description) .You will see the feedback for Valley Lodge 31 is very positive and anyone who stays here has a fantastic time.

  • "We were a group of 4 senior, but youthful."

    The accommodation was very clean and the beds extremely comfortable, an added bonus was the hot tub which was well placed for privacy. The food available at the restaurant was ample, hot and delivered with friendly service. The only downside was that there were bulbs missing from some of the lights downstairs. This is our 2nd time with Sykes holidays and we’d book again.

  • "The accommodation was clean and ell equipped."

    The beds were very comfortable. In the past we have been left instructions for heating, recycling etc but there were none this time. It would have been useful to have these when we arrived as the villa was cold and the thermostat is not easy to locate.

    Thank you for your feedback. We have taken your comments on board and have updated the instructions. Property Owner

  • "It was a lovely stay with all You need for a big family."

    The cottage was clean and comfortable, hot tub was ready to use for all 5 days we stayed. The cottage was very cold when we came on first day, but my husband found how to switch the heating on and we got cosy. Swimming pool, gym, restaurant - all were open despite of the time of the year which was a pleasure. Would definitely recommend this accommodation as the price was affordable too.

  • "The lodge was lovely."

    Clean and generally very well equipped. Only a couple of grumbles, as a group of girls together there were not enough sockets in the bedroom. Each room had just one double socket at one end of the room and the mirror the other end

  • "Rooms were decent in regards to bed comfort, wardrobe/drawer space."

    Kitchen well equipped. The hot tub was amazing! Property a good size for my family of 5. I was shocked to pay £1600 for 7 nights to find there’s no WiFi. Mostly given reception/service in Cornwall is pretty much none existent this was quite surprising. It would have been a nice gesture to provide a weeks worth of bin bags, hand soap, toilet roll and dish washer tablets in my opinion given the price we paid but you can buy all these at the Tesco approx 10 minute drive away. The speed bumps on site are not kind if you don’t drive a 4x4 so be warned of the scraping on your exhaust even at 1mph.

    Thank you for taking the time to complete your feedback following your recent stay at Valley Lodge 31. We are sorry you were shocked to not find wifi at this property, however we do not advertise wifi being available and due to the location of the property it can be hard to secure a good connection.

  • "Lovely place, very chilled site with friendly staff in both reception and the pub."

    Great food and service in the pub as well. The lodge itself is clean comfy and well equipped. We learned from a previous review that the furniture on the balcony was broken so we took a couple of chairs of our own and it worked out fine. The hot tub was simply the best and great to use in all weathers. Would definitely come back again. Only downside was that there is no Wi-Fi at lodges 30 - 32 although Wi-fi is advertised in the listing so this should be removed. We had a family crisis occur at home while we were away and had to go and ask someone else on site of we could use their Wi-Fi which was not ideal, but we managed. Given how dependent many people are on Wi-Fi, I think Sykes need to be clear about this to avoid customer disappointment and complaints.

    Thank you for sending us your feedback. We are glad you enjoyed your holiday and appreciate your kind remarks. Regarding the Wifi, it is stated in the marketing that wifi is available adjacent to the pool area, not in the property itself. We look forward to welcoming you back in the future. Property Owner

  • "The accommodation was clean and had all the items required for our week long break."

    Thought that the actual lodge building needed some maintenance - as the wooden balcony was a bit slippy and at least one board was beginning to break. Two of the outside seats were broken and couldn't be used, which seemed to have been previously reported but not removed. It also felt quite cold downstairs in the lodge. Could use some better signage as it was hard to locate the right building when we arrived in the dark.

The on-site facilities include indoor & outdoor heated swimming pools, bar, shop & reception.

Arranged in small clusters along the valley stream, these typical lodge-style family holiday homes are arranged over two floors with upstairs and downstairs terraces to enjoy the outside space.

The ground floor has a double, a twin and a bunk bedroom and two bathrooms.

The first floor has a welcoming sitting room with dining area and patio doors to the decked balcony with rural views and garden furniture, plus kitchen.

There is a terrace accessed from the master bedroom, again overlooking the valley with table and chairs for alfresco dining and very own hot tub.

The communal grounds are well maintained and are ideal for children to play ball games.

Valley Lodge 31 is well placed for guests looking to explore both Cornwall and Devon and has some fantastic local attractions nearby.

Within a short drive is the National Trust property, Cotehele, a Tudor house and valley garden estate set above the River Tamar.

A little further afield you can visit the glorious sandy beach at Whitsand Bay with dramatic scenery and sheer cliffs.

Equally accessible are Bodmin Moor and Dartmoor National Park with undulating moorlands and a myriad of historic sites and monuments - a rambler's dream.

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.
