  • "We had a really good time, it was nice to finish a evening walk with dogs at the pub."

  • "We found the Tamar so clean and welcoming."

    Lovely views from the accommodation and having the balcony was a treat. The upside down arrangement made a real lovely change. There is everything there you need and more really and the beds are comfortable. The site itself has good facilities, the pub is friendly and their food is very good. Getting out and about in your car is good easy, Kitts Hill is the closest for walking your dog off the lead and amazing views too. Train to Plymouth was so easy. Only thing I will say is yes it's near the Tamar Valley but as I took my elderly parents it's more on a hill than I thought so they couldn't walk around the site itself but the Tamar was on the level to the pub shop and other facilities. We really enjoyed our week felt home from home with beautiful scenery a quiet place and listening to the birds songs when in the chalet was lovely.

  • "A definite home from home property."

    Very big, comfortable and really well equipped. Loved the style of the decor too! Very nice touch to have scones with cream and jam on arrival so thank you for that. Couldn't have asked for a nicer place to stay. Myself, partner and our two children aged 7 and 11 loved it. The games provided were a big hit too, especially bingo!

  • "Accommodation very good, everything we could have needed was there."

    However, we went for a meal on our last night there, the restaurant was full of people with dogs, some very noisy and uncontrolled, a lady was seen vaping on the next table to us ( thought smoking of any kind was banned in food establishments ) My meal, Liver and bacon was totally inedible, the liver was so hard I had a job to cut it and the mash would have doubled as Polyfilla. I know you are not responsible for food but thought you should know. Having said that my wife's and our other guests meals were OK 'ish . We would however book you again.

  • "The home has had some new furniture and fittings since pictures."

    Fridge was too small for 6 so suggest a wine/drinks cooler would be a welcome addition. Being picky but as it was so hot needed to be outside as balcony had some shade late afternoon. The iron patio furniture looks nice but is very uncomfortable. Overall lovely and well equipped though. Very generous room sizes. Complex was really clean. Pub and swimming pools good.

  • "We have stayed at the Honicombe Manor complex in the past and it is a fantastic base with excellent access to both Devon and Cornwall."

    The accommodation was exactly as described and the facilities in Tamar 6 were very good with small things like foil and cling film not forgotten. We had some issues with the WiFi but it was raised and resolved quickly.

  • "Beautiful location with amazing views."

    The holiday cottage offered comfort, space and peace. Very well equipped kitchen and extremely clean throughout. We had a wonderful stay over the half term break. The on-site pool was a wonderful bonus which is a 2 minute walk along a flat path. Ample parking close by and an on-site pub by the pool if you don’t fancy cooking.

    A perfect location and accommodation, well situated to visit places like Looe, Bude, Port Isac and Padstow.Only 5 minutes from the Tesco store on the Callington road.

  • "The chalets are lovely."

    But the floors upstairs need fixing. It's very noisy if someone is upstairs and others are still in bed. Also while I understand why you need extra time for cleaning, not getting into the place until 5pm.and then having to leave at at 10am having had to clean in less time than you get means we loose a day's paid holiday.

  • "Thanks for your email."

    We only got back late last night as took our tent and decided to camp for a few nights in South Devon on the way home as the weather is so beautiful. We had a lovely family time in Cornwall with my daughter and her boyfriend. We booked very last minute as were meant to be going to Mauritius for 2 weeks, changed it to France in July and then when they brought the quarantine in for there decided to do a staycation in the UK. As we booked last minute and wanted a property with at least 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms and dog friendly there was not a lot of choice if I’m perfectly honest, we really did want somewhere near the beach but your property looked lovely and was really good value compared to everything else that was left. We all loved your little house and all the furnishings were of a very high standard and more than catered for our needs. Honicombe was a little strange, a lovely clean site which probably could do with some updating of the facilities. We did not eat in the pub but went for a few drinks and there did appear to be quite a lot of “locals” so I’m gathering a lot of people either live permanently on site or have a holiday home there which they live in for a good part of the year. Walking around the site in the morning with the dog we did not find people that friendly and getting a good morning out of them was difficult! With all of this in mind it was an excellent base for our holiday, we visited lots of different places and did not spend a lot of time on the site. I would definitely recommend your place for an adult group or family with teenagers who wanted a central spot for sightseeing.

    We found everything we needed within the accommodation, and found the visitors handbook very handy for local trips. We played tennis on the courts and our little one enjoyed the indoor pool. It was a nice relaxing break. We have used Sykes cottages for 10 years and have never been disappointed.

The property

Gunnislake 2 miles.

This deceptively spacious holiday chalet is within the grounds of Honicombe Manor Holiday Park, set in the Tamar Valley, a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

With far-reaching views of the Cornish countryside, this beautifully presented chalet offers modern, spacious, accommodation to please the family and the upside down arrangement gives a light and airy feel to the open plan first floor living room, which opens onto a veranda.

With large, soft comfy sofas as good as you would get at home plus a well-equipped kitchen, what better place to spend time with the family cooking local Cornish food, relaxing on the veranda with a glass of wine and admiring the views of The Tamar Valley.

There are three ground floor bedrooms together with a ground floor bathroom and separate shower room.

The on-site leisure facilities are plentiful, indoor and outdoor heated swimming pools, tennis, soft play area, restaurant and bar and woodland walks close by along the pretty Cornish lanes.

Along the road is a donkey sanctuary and a couple of miles away is the stunning NT property of Cotehele, a beautiful estate by the river Tamar with country house, glorious gardens and quayside visitor centre.

The Tamar Trails centre offers a host of activities for families including tree surfing, zip wires, mountain biking, falconry and gentle nature trails.

For the less energetic, take a train from Gunnislake to Plymouth, through the spectacular scenery of the Tamar Valley as it passes over the enormous Calstock viaduct on the way to the vibrant marine city, with National Maritime centre, theatres and historic areas full of eateries at the Barbican and Royal William Yard waterside areas.

After all this sightseeing, you can return to this cottage to relax and unwind in comfort.

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?
