    Whilst the holiday cottage exceeded expectations the holiday park didn't meet expectations. No lifeguards on the pools. The service at the bar for both food and drinks was incredibly slow With too few staff at peak times. The events arranged where ok but the room was too small to hold many people which meant you had to be there to claim a seat very early or miss out completely. The staff all seemed to be youngsters earning a crust during summer holidays and they did their best but there didn't appear to be anyone supervising. Would I use Sykes Cottages again? - yes their service was great sand the cottage wonderful. Would I go the same holiday park? No.

Children can let off steam on the communal lawn whilst parents keep a watchful eye from the private balcony with a glass of something chilled.

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?
