“The hot tub was a big hit”
“We booked a house with 2 bathrooms so, that with a family of 4, 2 people could use the bathroom at the same time.”
However, the bathrooms both had notices in them asking you not to use both showers at the same time as it would trip the fuse and leave you without power. There was little point paying extra to have 2 bathrooms if you can’t use them at the same time. The water pressure in the house was so low there was only a dribble of hot water coming out of the kitchen hot tap. It took 15 minutes to run a sink full of hot water. If you had the hot tap on in the kitchen then the (one) shower in the bathroom wouldn’t work and the low pressure light came on. The dishwasher failed to clean the plates on most occasions. The soap tablet failed to dissolve. Most likely due to the water prosecute issues. The hot tub, tennis court and pool all worked well for us, but the holiday was spoilt by the length of time it took for everyone to have showers in the morning and the fact we were ill, probably due to the unclean plates as the dishwasher didn’t work properly. We didn’t have a pass for the swimming pool left in the house but the receptionist did sort this for us.

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 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?
