    Ms Woolley

    “Having stayed in the same cottage I was pleased to find the internet connection vastly improved this year.”

    ...

    There were a few small things which I think could be improved upon. A dishwasher is great but not when it constantly fails to release the soap tablet. On several occasions, the fridge door sprung open after closing and the toilet flush handle in the shower room was loose making it difficult to flush and eventually becoming unusable. There was no contact number for a housekeeper to be able to report this. Whilst I agree that the lodge should be left in a clean and tidy state, it is difficult to do so with a cylinder vacuum when the extending handle collapses the instant it makes contact with the floor. I wouldn't struggle with a vac in this state in my own home I'm certainly not prepared to do so on my holiday. Finally, we stayed for 2 weeks yet were provided with only one tea towel, one cleaning cloth and no change of bed linens for our second week. I'm aware this all sounds very negative but I believe it is the small things like this that can make or break a holiday. Having made these points I would also like to say that the lodge itself, it's situation and the site are idyllic. Our two weeks break passed all too quickly.

The property

Situated in an ideal location for touring Cornwall, South Devon, Dartmoor and Bodmin Moor, this Alpine-style lodge offers comfortable accommodation and is set in glorious rolling countryside on the Honicombe Manor Resort, close to Gunnislake.

With all the benefits of the free leisure passes, your holiday can be as active or relaxing as you choose.

With indoor and outdoor swimming pools, tennis courts and a gym, there is plenty to keep you busy.

After an action-packed day you can head back to the lodge to relax in your private hot tub, whilst planning the next day ahead.

The lodge is designed in a clever upside down style, to make the most of the beautiful countryside views from the south-facing balcony, which adjoins the impressive open plan living room.

With contemporary furniture to enjoy alfresco dining and sun loungers for total relaxation, the balcony is the perfect spot to return to, after a day out exploring this delightful area.

There are three ground floor bedrooms, with the double having a Jack-and-Jill access to a modern bathroom.

The two twin bedrooms are both situated close to the family shower room.

The first floor open plan living room has a well-equipped kitchen, a comfortable dining area and a cosy sitting area opening out onto the balcony.

Whilst there is a bar and restaurant on the resort an enjoyable walk will take you to the village pub, The Rifle Volunteer, serving good food and local ales with regular events being held throughout the year.

With walks and cycling trails right from the door, and so many villages and attractions to visit all within a short drive, this lodge offers relaxing, comfortable accommodation all year round.

About the location

GUNNISLAKE

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?
