  • "We booked Wrens Nest with less than 24hrs notice due to a family medical crisis and we couldn’t have been more impressed."

    We arrived late and in the dark and the security light on the property made a a wonderful first impression. The unexpected welcome pack was a an added bonus and helped us settle in. The property had everything we could have wished for and was our safe haven at the end of each difficult day. We were only a party of two for most of the time but Wren’s Nest had everything to cater for a party of 6 of all ages, plus a dog, in comfort. The beds were comfortable and everywhere was clean and well maintained. The washing machine was an added bonus and much appreciated. The addition of an extra toilet which is planned over the winter will make a great addition to anybody’s stay. We can’t comment on the leisure facilities as we did not use them although we can recommend the food and the hospitality at the pub on the site. We plan to return to Wren’s Nest next year in better circumstances and we would recommend it to anyone. Thank you to the owners for making our stay the most pleasant it could be. Anne and Tom R.

    Thank you for your very kind feedback. It was a pleasure to have you to stay ,and I look forward to you staying again next year . Property Owner

  • "Wrens Nest, is a lovely bungalow, well equipped, nicely furnished and the layout is comfortable."

    Each bedroom has comfortable beds, configured as either double or single twins, nicely decorated, with bedside tables, lights, wardrobes, clothes hangers and TV. Towels and bed linen are of good/high quality. The lounge is equipped with a corner suite, capable of seating 5/6. The dining table and chairs are comfortable, large screen TV is a delight to watch. WIFI is included with speeds upto around 12Mbps. The kitchen is well equipped, with separate fridge, freezer, dishwasher, washing machine, electric hob and oven the owner supplied a generous welcome pack, which included a treat for our dog. There is a separate WC, which is a little tight for the larger person. Bathroom has a bath with electric shower, all easy to use. The enclosed garden and furniture are well constructed, However, if your pet likes to escape, keep a close eye on them, as there are gaps under the ajoining hedge. We noticed that every Monday the gate was left open, not sure why? The heating and hot water are controlled via a 30min, 1hr and 2 hr timer process. The main site is well equipped, with swimming pools, gym, shop and a pet friendly pub that does good food. The location has good access to roads and public attractions. We stopped for two weeks, the bungalow was a pleasure to stop in.

    Thank you for your very kind feedback. we are putting an additional toilet into the bathroom over the winter months. we will look into the gaps in the neighbour's hedge .Hope to see you again next year . Property Owner

  • "Just returned from a 4 night stay at Wren's Nest and what a lovely stay it was."

    On arrival there was no check in which meant we could go direct to the lodge. The lodge was lovely, clean and tidy and suitable for a wheel chair user although the toilet is separate to the bathroom and quite compact but that didn't affect our stay. Provided with lovely clean fluffy towels and decent bedding. We could not have asked for anything else during this stay - everything you could possibly need was provided and the extra's provided were a really nice touch. Will definitely recommend and looking to book again next year!!

    Thank you for your feedback, we have scheduled modernisation of the bathroom to include a second toilet over the winter months. look forward to you staying again next year . Property Owner

  • "Very pleased with Wren's Nest."

    Perfect for our needs and lovely location between Callington and Tavistock. Only slight issue was the lack of parking...nearest spots were a couple of hundred yards away if you got lucky. Wouldn't recommend for anyone with mobility issues. Other than that nothing to pick fault with at all.

    I'm sorry that you had problems with parking. Glad everything else was OK for you . Property Owner

  • "A lovely cottage, well stocked and spacious."

    Nice green area out front for picnics / run around. Size was perfect for 2 adults and 2 teenagers plus dog. Easy booking of small gym/pool. Nice evening entertainment on 2 nights (if you choose to attend - not intrusive ie not heard from cottage). Grounds lovely though not suitable for disabled due to steep hills. Couldn't recommend the cottage or cottage owner more - fabulous!

    I really appreciate your very kind feedback. Hope you will come and stay with us again. It was a pleasure to have you stay . Property Owner

  • "Lovely little property."

    Has literally everything you could think of and definitely felt like a home from home. Kids loved playing out on the grass at the front and the Wi-Fi was excellent. Beds and sofa were very comfy. The park itself is quiet but it was nice having the pub on site for a drink to end the day. Swimming was very easy to book and kids enjoyed it. Games room and little arcade were also nice additions, although need to bring own bats and ball to play table tennis. Overall we had a lovely stay and would definitely recommend the property as a comfortable base for exploring Cornwall.

    Thankyou so much for your lovely feedback. I really appreciate it. Property Owner

The property

Gunnislake 2.2 miles.

Resting upon Honicombe Park in St. Ann's Chapel, Cornwall, is Wren's Nest, a fabulous, single-storey lodge.

Benefitting from access to a range of on-site facilities, including a restaurant, indoor and outdoor swimming pools, and a gym, whilst resting near the Tamar Valley AONB, Wren's Nest offers a delightful base for a family break; six guests and a furry companion are invited.

Park up off-road before heading indoors, firstly reaching the spacious living/dining room, complete with a plush corner sofa, a wall-mounted Smart TV, and dining space to gather as a group.

Continue through to the kitchen, fully-equipped for a self-catering stay with a range of state-of-the-art appliances; prepare meals and dine indoors, or take advantage of your enclosed patio, where you can bask in the sunshine and dine alfresco.

After a fun-filled day, catch some rest in one of the three bedrooms on offer, including a king-size with Smart TV, and two twins, serviced by a bathroom.

Awaken to explore the park and its facilities, before heading to The Tamar Valley Donkey Park for a family-friendly day out, or to tour the nearby National Trust property of Cotehele, brimming with history and pretty gardens, whilst the Tamar Trails Centre is a recommended stop off for outdoor enthusiasts, offering various walking, cycling and watersport activities.

Nearby you'll also locate the Adrenalin Quarry, offering an array of activities whilst enveloped by stunning views, or pack your walking boots and traverse across the Golitha Falls National Nature Reserve.

Travel north to reach Launceston and its amenities, practise your swing at the Launceston Golf Club, or spend the afternoon at Trethorne Leisure Park, whilst the coast is within driving distance, possible to pass through Polperro Heritage Coast, Looe, Fowey, and many more coastal villages and towns.

About the location


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 Morwellham 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?
