    Had great experience. No need to even check in or wait for someone to take you to lodge. This was fab for us as we'd had a long drive and it was such a bonus being able you just grab key and walk in. The lodge was great, very clean and modern decor throughout. It would be nice to see local artwork to make you feel like you're in Cornwall but that's just me! It really was very lovely. We couldn't work through radiators to dry our (own) towels and there were no instructions (other than a warning sheet) for the hot tub. I ended up downloading some to figure it out as not easiest thing to use without instructions. If the owners would like my electronic copy of the instructions please do drop me an email as I would be more than happy to email them over. Hot tub was otherwise warm, clean and extremely relaxing. Accessible through the main double bedroom and plenty of privacy afforded. Loved loved loved it! Kitchen great and clean with lots of utensils and great toaster. Lovely big dining table in addition to outdoor seating on the balcony overlooking fields. Really lovely. We'd asked for use of hot tub and cot. Both were ready upon our arrival so we were able to get baby to sleep fairly quickly and use hot tub on first night. We were reassured upon our departure that the hot tub is freshly prepared for each new guest. A chap came an emptied the hot tub at 9am on the last day. However we were bit confused as we had the lodge until 10am and we had toyed with the idea of packing up and having one last dip before we left that morning. Our lodge in particular was very private and not really overlooked by anyone. We used the indoor swimming pool twice. It was lovely and warm enough too. Our daughter loved it. The bar is a bit tired but great to have it as an option as bit too far to walk to another pub. If you're anything like us though you'll be too tired after a day of sightseeing and fun around beautiful cornwall. Loved every minute. Wish I had booked two weeks! Thanks guys

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 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?
