  • "Honestly the pictures shown do not do this property justice, the whole place is even more stunning than shown!"

    ! Val and Steve were on hand to help with any problems you had (I had an issue with the shower in the morning, I messaged Val and she offered to get Steve to come and have a look at it. Turns out I just hadn’t turned it on properly). Their hosting skills were absolutely fantastic. The lodge was impeccably well put together, tidy and clean. The kitchen was fully functional and had the options of a washing machine and a dishwasher which made the stay a lot easier. Val and Steve went the extra mile and put balloons and banners up as they knew we were attending for my daughter’s 12th birthday, they even left a lovely card for her. She really was over the moon. The hot tub was heated and ready for us on arrival. There was lots of information sheets, DVD’s and the choice to book swimming which meant we had lots to do!! I have rated them on here as high as I could but they really do deserve the highest ratings!! We will definitely be booking to come back again in the future. I would also like to add that where the lodge is located it is very tranquil and quiet. I loved waking up in the mornings and seeing the view from the balcony when I went upstairs in the morning.

    Thank you so much sweetheart for such an outstanding review. You are more than welcome anytime. Thank you for leaving the lodge so wonderfully clean and tidyxx Property Owner

    Lovely gift of chocolates, biscuits and wine, loved the topsy-turvey living gave us super views from balcony. Fully equipped kitchen, which made it so easy to prepare Christmas dinner, dishwasher, freezer, fridge and washer. We did not use the hot tub or other onsite facilities other than the pub/restaurant which was welcoming. and friendly. Plenty of amenities in nearby surrounding areas.

    . When we arrived it was clean and we had been left wine chocolates strawberries milk and treats for the dogs.. the hot tub was a massive hit took away a lot of stress.. The only problems we had was the bins on the site had not been emptied at all the whole time we had been their also they are too far away.. We had a metal bin on the corner for the dog waste and it was overflowing… Couldn’t fault Val as she made us feel very welcome and kept us updated on things that had happened.. liked the storm closed the pool for a day…

    Very clean and tidy with good furnishings. Spent some time working while here and wifi was excellent. Hot tub always a nice to have and, due to the location of the lodge at the bottom of the site, so quiet for a morning dip with nothing but birdsong and the sunrise to enjoy. Most definitely would recommend and stay again.

    Thank you for the lovely feedback and leaving lodge immaculate. Can't wait to see you all again!! Property Owner

    It had everything we needed in the kitchen where there were quality items of kitchen equipment. A frying pan that did not stick and knives that were sharp enough to use, not always the case in rental,properties. The owner left us a lovely welcome pack and was most helpful, particularly when we got lost finding the holiday park, sat nav took us close but down narrow country lanes that ended nowhere in particular. Only downside, the pub on site was fully booked when we arrived and not able to provide take away either.

    The lodge is well equipped, and we were delighted to find that it also had a washing machine, dishwasher and freezer, which isn’t currently included in the listing. The Sunday Carvery at the onsite pub was excellent value for money. The owners Val and Steve were really helpful and responded quickly to a couple of requests we had. We would definitely return and recommend to friends and family.

The property

Gunnislake 2.3 miles.

No 51 Valley Lodges is an attractive holiday lodge, set amongst woodland in the beautiful grounds of Honicombe Manor Holiday Village, in the hamlet of St Ann's Chapel near Gunnislake.

In a secluded quiet setting on the edge of the site, this cottage is a perfect getaway for countryside lovers and birdwatchers in Devon.

Providing modest, welcoming accommodation with reverse-level arrangement, taking advantage of the stunning outlook from the open-plan living space and balcony, the cottage has a snug and homely feel.

The ground floor hosts three bedrooms, a double with en-suite bathroom, and two twins, along with a shower room.

After busy days, the lodge has a private hot tub for you to unwind while admiring the views.

With an on-site tennis court and walks from the doorstep to nearby NT Cotehele alongside the sweeping Tamar River, there is something to occupy the whole family.

For the less energetic, there is a picturesque train journey to Plymouth from the local station, where passengers enjoy the spectacular scenery of the Tamar Valley, an AONB, on the way.

Children will love the donkey sanctuary within walking distance or maybe visit Morwhellham Quay where The Edwardian Farm was filmed, which is a Victorian mining village with lots of activities within the living history theme.

Dartmoor National Park is a short drive away providing walks, historic legends and plenty of ponies.

This cosy lodge provides an ideal base to explore the well-known Tamar Valley.

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?
