Lodge | 4 bedrooms | sleeps 10
You won't find a better location to explore this stunning part of the UK.
Our relaxing four bed lodge lies within the grounds of Honicombe Manor, a 17th Century estate in an area of outstanding natural beauty.
Looking over Dartmoor to one side and down across the glittering Tamar River, our lodge can easily accommodate groups, several couples or families holidaying together and is the perfect base to explore this stunning part of the country.
There's everything you need here to relax, whether you want to cook a full meal or just have a soak, watch a DVD and get ready for the next day's adventures.
Outside, there is a brand new private hot tub on the verandah, where after a hard day's exploring, you can settle back and watch night draw in, or perhaps just listen to the hooting of the owls. You'll sleep like a log here.
Up above is a fantastic balcony where you can sit and enjoy breathtaking views by day - and gaze at shooting stars by night; no light pollution here! Wildlife watchers are warned to bring binoculars; from your balcony you might catch sight of a fox, deer, buzzard, passing peregrine or a host of songbirds, butterflies and insects.
If you're a keen walker, this is heaven. Just a short tramp from your base are historic houses, riverside and woodland walks and more. A little further afield you can explore the mysteries of Dartmoor or visit the magical fishing villages dotted around this corner of Cornish coast. The charming market town of Tavistock is a short drive away with historic Plymouth just a little further. Or why not take the Tamar Valley railway, just a mile or so from our lodge? For a ridiculously small fee, you can take the leisurely route into Plymouth via the viaduct at Calstock and a host of Agatha Christiesque country stations.
There are no shortage of great eateries nearby (the award-winning Horn of Plenty restaurant is within a 10 minute drive and Langman's at Callington is just 4 miles away and a must visit for high-end foodies).
Activities on site include heated indoor swimming pool, sauna and sun bed; fitness centre (there is a small extra weekly fee payable at reception to use these facilities); games room with pool table; conservatory restaurant; bar serving snacks, meals and a takeaway menu in case you fancy a cosy night in your lodge; a children's play area; tennis courts and a launderette. Use of a car is recommended to get the most out of your visit to Honicombe Manor.
We maintain you won't find a better place to explore the Devon/Cornwall borders. Come and see for yourself.
