  • Mrs Dunkley

    “Had a really enjoyable stay, accommodation was comfortable and kitchen was well equipped.”

    Quite a cold week so had problems putting on heating but call to maintenance sorted this out. Close to Donkey Sanctuary but had to drive to get to other attractions. All staff really friendly and helpful would definitely come back in coming back to area.

The property

Gunnislake 2.5 miles. This spacious detached holiday chalet is in a cul-de-sac of similar chalets, in the beautiful 30-acre wooded grounds of the peaceful Honicombe Manor holiday village, a mile from St Ann's Chapel near Gunnislake.

Ideally located for families who enjoy the outdoors and also touring all of Cornwall as well as South Devon and the moors.

With full use of the resort's leisure facilities for which the owners have provided membership, you will always find plenty to do whatever the weather. Furnished to a high standard, this Honicombe Manor cottage offers modern and convenient accommodation for families and friends.

With an open plan living area, and sleeping and bathroom facilities on both floors, there is plenty of space in this Honicombe Manor cottage for family gatherings or groups of friends.

The living room opens onto a patio giving you the opportunity for a spot of alfresco dining. The lodge is ideally placed for those who fancy a more active break in Cornwall with tennis courts very nearby and the indoor and outdoor swimming pools, gym, table tennis, soft play area for the little ones, bar/restaurant, shop and reception just minutes and a short walk away via an easily navigable pathway winding through the resort. During the school holidays there is a busy programme of entertainment including quiz nights and karaoke plus sporting activities including archery, rock climbing, canoeing and abseiling (subject to seasonal opening times). With a fine selection of walks and cycle trails all around, there is plenty to do without going further afield but for those so inclined there are some fabulous local walks through the nearby Tamar Valley, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

Equally accessible are Bodmin Moor and Dartmoor National Park with undulating moorlands and a myriad of historic sites and monuments - a rambler's dream. The lodge is located in a lesser known part of Cornwall in an Area of Outstanding National Beauty (ANOB), and yet is within 20 miles of the glorious sandy beaches at Whitsand with dramatic scenery and sheer cliffs.

The fabulous, bustling town of Looe can also be reached in under an hour (the children and adults will love having a go at crabbing in the harbor), as can the Polperro Heritage Coast. A couple of miles from this Honicombe Manor cottage is the beautiful estate at Cotehele (NT), with formal and woodland gardens sweeping down to the quay on the River Tamar.

With so many beautiful villages close by to explore including the idyllic riverside village of Calstock and the outstanding National Trust properties there will always be a choice when deciding your day out - but why not take a train ride to the vibrant city of Plymouth with its many attractions such as the National Marine Aquarium, enjoying the spectacular scenery of the Tamar Valley on the way? Close to your Honicombe Manor cottage is a donkey sanctuary, the Victorian mining village at Morwhellam Quay, and the UK's longest zip wire near Callington. However you must not miss the opportunity to visit the nearby Siblyback Lake and Outdoor and Active centre providing family-friendly activities whether for beginners or keen watersport enthusiasts, an ideal opportunity to learn something new. An ideal and convenient location for a holiday or short well-deserved break at any time of year.

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?
