Dartmoor Valley Lodges
About the home
Offering superb facilities (open from 18th April to the end of the October half term week) including a communal indoor and outdoor heated swimming pool, sauna and a private hot tub, Honicombe Manor Lodge and Dartmoor Valley Lodge are a pair of well appointed detached residences set in 30 acres of countryside on the grounds of the Honicombe Manor Leisure and Holiday Resort in the Tamar Valley.
Close to Dartmoor National Park and the Cornwall and Devon border, guests residing here will find it well located for exploring the diversities of both counties and within a 30 minute drive of the large tracts of sandy beaches at Whitsand Bay, the vibrant and historical naval city of Plymouth, the awe inspiring gardens at the Eden Project and the charismatic fishing ports of Polperro and Looe.
Practical for families and large groups and affordable without compromise, the immaculate and newly refurbished interior includes two double bedrooms, two twin bedrooms, a double sofa bed (to accommodate an additional two guests by prior consent with the owner) and the convenience of two bathrooms. The spacious open plan living room, equipped with a contemporary corner sofa, digital flat-screen and Nintendo Wii, is perfect for social gatherings and what better way to relax after long fun-filled days than to sink into the warm swirling waters of the private hot tub on the south-facing enclosed balcony.

The West Country / Cornwall region
The property is set on the edge of the Tamar Valley, between Callington and Gunnislake a 5 minute drive drive from the Tamar estuary in an area of outstanding natural beauty.
There has been a dwelling on the Honicombe Manor site, in the beautiful Tamar Valley for over 670 years. The first assessment of properties, rentals and tenants was made In the Assession Roll of Calstock in 1333 (now in possession of the Duchy of Cornwall) and in the Manor of Calstock, there was a dwelling with 32 acres attached called ‘Honyacombe’.
Honey derived from the Anglo–Saxon ‘Honiga‘, meaning Honied and the Celtic word ‘Combe’ meaning Valley. Therefore the meaning of Honeycombe is honeyed or fruitful valley, and is descriptive of the valley which opens onto the River Tamar just below Calstock.
The Callington / St Ann's Chapel area
The area was a market garden long before the mining industry invaded its woods and hills, and regularly supplied Plymouth and the Navy with vegetables and fruit. To this day the valley at the head of which Honicombe stands is lush, densely wooded and fertile.
There are plenty of beaches within striking distance of Honicombe, on the North and South coasts of Devon and Cornwall. Here are details of a few:

We stayed at dartmoor lodge in August for 1 week, shame it rained nearly every day but that did't spoil our week. The lodge was nice and cleen and spacious and coming back to the hot tub was very nice. The club itself had a nice bar with good food and a very good swimming pool. Lots of different places to go and see from this location.
