  • "The only issue was hot water, as soon as someone had a bath, the rest had to wait to have a shower."

    May I suggest having a combi boiler installed.

    The house was clean and child friendly. It was an excellent base to explore the local area including Dartmoor and the Tamar Valley. The onsite facilities were also fantastic and kept the whole family entertained. The children are very keen to go back!

    Beds very comfortable. Excellent selection of kitchen equipment. A coffee maker and hairdryer would be the only things I would suggest- and possibly WiFi!

    For us the beds where a bit hard but that’s down to preference. If we’re being picky WiFi would have been good although The kids loved the pool area as WiFi was available up there.

    The holiday lodge was superb in a lovely location with great views on a large site( dont be put off by that as it spreads over a big area). On site facilities were very good with the indoor pool & gym a bonus at Xmas time.Dogs very welcome & there are several superb walks from the park itself.

  • "This is a very well equipped holiday home."

    We were a party of 7 adults and 2 small children and did not feel cramped. The showers were excellent and,having two bathrooms, we weren’t queuing up. The owner also very kindly said we could stay on till the Sunday at no extra cost as she didn’t have a booking for the next week. Unfortunately we had to leave on the Saturday but the offer took the pressure off packing up which was much appreciated. Along with the beautiful view from the rear of the property, and the lack of neighbours out of season, we would highly recommend.

  • "What a lovely place."

    We were 4 generations and having upstairs and downstairs accommodation really made our stay. The house is bright and airy, well decorated and we had everything we needed. We used the indoor pool. Perfect for the whole family. We had a meal at the clubhouse and were well met by friendly staff. We even won the quiz one night! Claire text us in the morning of our arrival to let us know that we could check in early. 5his was a bonus. I would recommend a Tesco food delivery. Saved a lot of hassle and gave us more room in the car. We look forward to another visit. There was so much to do with days out to East Looe beach, Morewellham quay, 2 national trust properties, donkey sanctuary, trago mills in liskard, visit to tavistock , visit to Boscastle, Par sands.......

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?
