  • "Holidaying with 3 young children…."

    No stairgate asked about having one only to be told the last users broke it and there was no replacement available. Everything felt really sticky as though it had been sprayed with something. Cobwebs everywhere especially around the hot tub of which the surround was falling to bits. No curtain/blind in the bathroom to keep the light from the outside light out. Would never of paid what we did if we knew it was like it was….the whole site is very tired.

  • "Beautifully furnished and decorated, and adequately warned about the steep access, but the railings were in a poor state of repair, where one of the staves came away in the hand."

    But the property was wonderful, the pool kept the youngsters amused, the hot tub was amazing and the owner was great!

  • "On arrival the lodge appeared to have been cleaned superficially with dust & cobwebs on window sills and in corners."

    The lodge smelt of stale cigarette or "Vape" smoke. The walls the shower and bath overflow had black hairs stuck to them. After unpacking and eating we settled down to watch the TV and I was immediately bitten on the ankle by a flea which I caught and drowned in a glass of water. Initially we put this down as a one off and went to bed . Over the following night I received 4 to 5 painful bites which came up as large red wheals, my son also complained of being bitten. We took pictures of the bites to evidence which have been sent to you. Throughout the following day we tried to contact maintenance on the two numbers provided without success. The next evening both my Husband and myself were bitten on several occasions with the guilty fleas caught and dispensed in the same glass of water as the first, again pictures were taken & have been sent to you. We again attempted to contact maintenance and the owner, and had to resort to contacting Sykes to sort out. The house had to be fumigated meaning we couldn't access the property for all of the 24/10/23. Even after fumigation we were still catching fleas so made the decision to cut our holiday short.

    Thank you for completing your feedback following your recent stay at Valley Lodge 58. We would like to confirm and reassure future guests that pest control attended the property within 24 hours of the property manager being notified and their subsequent report confirmed that there were no fleas present in the property.

  • "We have stayed at Honicombe Manor previously in number 51 and we had had lovely stays so we were looking forward to another."

    Due to now being a larger party, we chose a larger property, this time being number 58 and we unfortunately felt our stay was not up to standards on many accounts which we are sad to say, took the shine off our holiday. Firstly, when we arrived, it was clear that the standards of cleanliness weren't up to what we would expect, or had from previous stays. Whilst it was clear the bare minimum had been done, other aspects had been left such as windowsills covered in dead flies, very dusty and sticky skirting boards and damp/mould signs on the bedroom ceilings. We overlooked this and settled in but as our two weeks went on, the difficulties we encountered Just seemed to mount up. We had a young child with us so were glad of the addition of the stair gate at the top of the stairs, however this was not securely fitted to the wall, making using it even more of a danger than not having it there at all, its clear its been attempted to be fixed in the past but has left gaping holes in the wall behind where it has ripped out of the wall. Furthermore, the balcony felt highly unsafe, there was an obvious slope downwards to it as you walk out and 3 of the slats in the balcony railings moved from side to side, not secured in which was another concern as we had a small child in our party. The hot tub, which is one of the highlights of the lodges we book at honicombe, unfortunately was clearly tired and many of the jets weren't working. The tired feel was obvious in the rest of the house where the freezer moved away from the units as you opened the door, towels provided (which is a bonus) were very hard and rough and one of the bedroom doors was hard to open and close. The lodge is advertised with two showers which we feel is important where the lodge can take up to 8 guests. That said however, the shower unit itself leaked and flooded the floor within seconds making it unusable and so we were restricted to sharing just the one shower. On inspection, it would only take a bit of silicone to fix the issue, and this issue (amongst others) have been mentioned many months prior so it was really disheartening to see this hadn't been bothered to be looked at. The shower was only used once as we noted it flooded, we cleaned it up and left it but then a week later noticed that this had then caused fungi to grow inside the house from the edge of the shower on the floor. The Internet was extremely slow but was changed half way through our stay which we were delighted about giving us a good connection. That said however, two days before our departure it then stopped working all together giving us nothing at all. Also, due to us staying for two weeks, the maids attended half way through our stay which whilst a nice touch, we had had no notice of this and were out at the time so we're unnerved to find that they had been in around all of our belongings without being made aware. Lastly, on previous visits, we had loved the manor pub, for the food and entertainment, frequenting it often during our stays. However we were gutted to find out that the entertainment was no longer on, the games room removed, the darts boards closed off entirely and food serving times restricted or closed entirely. It didn't have the same lively feel as it used to.

    The site is all hills so very up and down but that didn’t bother us but may some people be if they do not realise The clubhouse- menu is small but has a good choice of food and was very tasty, entertainment on some of the nights of the week and the bands we saw were good, staff were polite and helpful We needed the assistance of maintenance whilst there and the owners were very helpful and got them out as fast as possible. I like they left us a folder with information of the lodge, how to book swimming, pubs/takeouts of the local area and other days out it helped us make decisions along the way as we had them to hand The washing machine has helped immensely as not so much washing to do now we are home!

  • "Our stay was ok, but the property was pretty run down."

    we were not in it much, and left a day early so it was not a huge problem, but it smelt of damp when we arrived and there was a fair bit of dampness throughout our stay and I think the shower leaked into the bedroom next door. The facilities were good, but some of the kitchen equipment could do with an upgrade - baking trays, non stick frying pan etc would have been nice.

    Thank you for taking the time to leave your feedback. The leak in the shower has since been repaired and we will be looking at making some changes to the kitchen equipmet. Property Owner

    Very spacious, the kids and adults enjoyed the jacuzzi. The only problems we had was with the internet but the maintenance people tried to sort it but it did still keep losing connection , I’m sure this will be sorted soon. The floors upstairs are very squeaky so was a bit of a problem for lazy adults when the kids get up early, quite hilly around the site and a few steps to get to cabin.

    Thank you for completing your feedback. We are glad you enjoyed your stay. We are sorry that there were some issues with the internet, an engineer did attend the property. The steps up to the property are mentioned on the website. We do hope that this wouldn't deter you from staying again and would love to welcome you back. Property Owner

    We really adore the lovely restaurant on site and had several meals there, we had stayed at honnicombe manor the previous year and the staff remembered us, all very welcoming and friendly, the only down side was we had allocated parking for the lodge we took two cars and ensured we left space for the surrounding lodges, after coming back form a day out two large white vans had took up all the parking which we thought was selfish, so we ended up in the car park which wasn’t far, maybe numbered parking bays allocated to each lodge might be an idea, but overall we still had a lovely week and are hoping to come back again soon thank you so much

    Lovely location and the lodge had everything you would ever need for a family of 8. Hot tub was lush and safety checked everyday by the great management team. Big shout out to Kevin who was a wealth of knowledge of the area. Some great tips of places to go. The welcome pack also had loads of information. Would highly recommend to anyone and not sure where all the negative reviews came from. The place was clean tidy and plenty of space.

  • "Bathrooms in the lodge were quite tired and could do with modernisation."

    Steps and pathway th accommodation were not the easiest covered in slippery leafs and arriving at 5pm in the dark meant quite a hazard when getting to lodge as poor lighting from main road, note that reception did get someone to clear the pathway once highlighted. Hottub was really nice but very slimey feel when getting in, almost almost film which wasn't great. General comments on site facilities are that games room, shouldn't really be called a games room as apart from pool table the 2 games were out of order and table tennis ball s missing. Liked the booking system for the pool, but did have to raise that tiles were hanging from the ceiling. In summary for the price paid I would expect a but more and the site in general could do with freshened up. Saying that the location was really really nice as not previously stayed in this part of Cornwall

    After 24hrs we were told not to press the 'mode' button, this would have been helpful to know on arrival, this meant we couldn't use for the first 24hrs. The dishwasher is broken on both racks. More cutlery and plates would be helpful as having to take back out the dishwasher. Locks broken on both bathrooms-rather awkward! Shame no Christmas decorations since 27th Dec? Also just a suggestion, somewhere to put shoes near entrance would be good (8 people with 2 pairs each=mess) Great location, site facilities and overall a nice property.

    Ideal base for a stay. Lodge was spacious enough for 8 in the 4 rooms but the bedrooms are a tad cramped. Hot tub was amazing. Kids loved both pools. Pub onsite was nice and not bad value with a great selection of gin. Reception was really helpful. The management company were not the easiest to get hold of before our stay but Were great and really helpful while we were there. The lodge itself could do with a few tweaks but it didn’t stop us enjoying the stay, neither bathroom doors locked, one didn’t shut at all, carpets could use a deep clean as they are really good quality. Not convinced the bathrooms got cleaned prior to our stay as the cubicle was filthy (I’m not a neat freak and I found it grim! Anyone with high cleaning standards would hate it!) and both bathrooms full of cobwebs. That said the kitchen was spotless. Enough of everything Crockery, glass wear, towels etc for 8. Comfy beds, were offered clean towels mid stay. Will def return

We ordered a big Tesco shop and they were able to access the lodge easily too Log in time on the generic email siad 3pm but the owners on speaking to them said 4pm, so that was a little confusing, the lodges have only had access to wi-fi in the last twelve months, so it is best to check which lodges have it installed first if that is what you need etc! The on site bar and restaurant have wi-fi though which is only a 2 minute walk up the hill. A very good find :-)

  • "Grandchildren had a wonderful time excellent location, lodge very comfortable and warm, but a few issues in shower room tiles coming off wall and shower surround coming off light wouldn’t say on went off half way through having a shower."

    Bathroom with bath full of little spiders nest toilet took ages to fill , bathroom door difficult to open from the inside. Pulled blind down in kitchen full of dead moths etc so pulled it back up and didn’t pull down again . Kitchen tap very loose sink leaked a bit put a bowl underneath. I know these are only little issues but could be put right very quickly. We was going to write a comment in the visitors book but noticed all the pages ripped out. Bar was closed for a couple of days but didn’t bother us enjoyed the pool and hot tub .

The property

The lodge-style accommodation within the Tamar Valley Resort near Callington is well placed for guests looking to explore a little of both Cornwall and Devon.

Set amongst 20 acres of rolling countryside in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

The open-plan living room is the heart of the homestay with doors to the decked balcony with seating and table for sunshine dining and leafy views beyond.

The dining area with big table for feasts and board games, makes a great social space and the kitchen is modern and bright.

The ground floor bedrooms are comfy with ample storage space; the master leads out to the decked patio area and has a Jack and Jill en-suite bathroom.

The private hot tub on the decked area is a real luxury - ideal for an evening tipple or sun soaked bathe, there is also a large balcony on the first floor making the most of views.

Within a short drive is Cotehele, a Tudor house and valley garden estate set above the River Tamar or a little further afield you can visit the glorious sandy beach at Whitsand Bay with dramatic scenery and sheer cliffs.

Equally accessible is the magical Dartmoor National Park with undulating moorlands and a myriad of historic sites and monuments - a rambler's dream.Just a short walk from the on site leisure facilities including indoor and outdoor heated swimming pools, bar, shop and reception are the Valley Lodges.

About the location


Tavistock 9 miles; Launceston 11.5 miles; Plymouth 14.6 miles.

Callington is a Cornish market town, rich in mining heritage and overlooked by Kit Hill, the highest point in the area, donated to the people of Cornwall by Prince Charles to celebrate the birth of Prince William. From the top of Kit Hill there are fabulous views across south-east Cornwall as far as Plymouth Sound. Callington is set in the heart of the Tamar Valley, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, and offers a good selection of shops, inns and cafes, as well as being the home of Ginsters Cornish pasties. A few miles away, the quaint village of Calstock clings to the steep banks of the river Tamar and is dominated by the splendid Calstock Railway Viaduct, a giant 11-arched stone construction supporting one of Britain’s most picturesque branch lines running through the Tamar Valley. Other interesting places along the river are Cotehele, a beautiful historic house and gardens owned by the National Trust with a small quay and inn, and Morwhellam Quay, a theme park that staged a living history production for the BBC and where visitors can explore the rich mining heritage and watch blacksmiths, potters and craftsmen at work. The pannier market town of Tavistock is only nine miles from Callington and is well worth a visit on your way to a day’s walk on Dartmoor. A splendid base to explore south Cornwall and West Devon.
