Eden Valley Lodge and Dartmoor Valley Lodge are a pair of fully equipped interior designed detached residences, both with private hot tubs set in the grounds of the Tamar Valley Holiday Resort, which is itself positioned in the Tamar Valley - a superb rural haven well known for its outstanding natural beauty.

This area has so much to offer the whole family. Visit the glorious sandy beach at Whitsand Bay with dramatic scenery and sheer cliffs, enjoy a visit to The Eden project with its giant bio-domes of exotic plants from across the globe, explore Cotehele House and gardens or visit the vibrant naval city of Plymouth with attractions in abundance. Travel 17 miles to Dartmoor National Park, with scenic, undulating moorlands and a myriad of historic sites and monuments. The charismatic fishing port of Polperro is a 50 minute drive; a picturesque cove of harbour, quaint streets and traditional inns serving Cornish ales and cyders. From here the coastal path to Looe is a pleasurable walk across the cliff tops. Golitha Falls is a nearby captivating destination, with spectacular waterfalls that weave their way through ancient oak and beech woodlands. The fascinating prehistoric and geological sites of Bodmin Moor can be easily reached which is popular among walkers for its heritage centre located in the disused engine house.

Perfect for families and large groups with a bright, modern ambiance. The open plan living room has a breakfast bar and is equipped with a contemporary corner sofa, digital flat-screen and Nintendo Wii. The immaculate 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 bath and shower rooms and outside, you can relax in the private hot-tub on the south facing enclosed decked patio.

Situated opposite the children's play area, with large open grassed areas, the kids can play safely. There is a court/hard area for tennis or football just up from the lodge which really does make a unique holiday option for a families and friends.

For the more energetic why not visit the Adrenalin Quarry near Liskeard which offers coasteering and bungee jumping or try your hand on a Segway Personal Transporter around the woodlands at Siblyback Lake on the edge of Bodmin Moor where you can even hire a kayak or try wakeboarding! There is so much fun to be had in and around Honicombe Manor you will be spoilt for choice and what better way to relax after long fun-filled days than to sink into the warm swirling waters of the private hot tub!

The England 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 AngloSaxon 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.

Callington

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:
On the South Coast:
East Looe. Sandy beach, ideal for families with young children. Toilets and refreshments nearby. NO DOGS ALLOWED.

“Lovely family holiday”

Reviewed 9 Oct 2012

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.
