Honicombe Manor Holiday Park is situated in the stunning rural countryside of the Tamar Valley, a designated area of outstanding natural beauty, apart from the on site facilities which include 2 swimming pools, tennis courts a gym and table tennis there are dozens of scenic walks, trails and paths through a mixture of rural vistas from wooded valleys to rolling moorland passing derelict tin and silver mines, Ancient monuments include Castlewitch Henge and Cadsonbury Iron age hill fort. To the west is Bodmin Moor and to the East, across the Tamar Valley, is Dartmoor. If golf is your thing the world famous St Mellion golf course is only 10 minutes away!
The Tamar Valley is a stunning, quiet, picturesque region with some beautiful villages including Calstock with its impressive Viaduct dominating the village, Calstock Quay was originally used for transportation of tin as there is a deep water navigable channel at the top of the tides, although the construction of the Tamar Valley Railway in the early 20th century led to most cargo being transported by rail. Further up stream is Morwellham Quay with its fantastic open air museum, Morwellham Quay has been awarded World Heritage Site status by UNESCO, the cultural arm of the UN, and is part of the Cornwall and West Devon Mining Landscape. Originally set up by the Benedictine Monks from Tavistock Abbey in 961 as a trading route to Plymouth via the Tamar. Tavistock is an ancient stannary and market town on the edge of Dartmoor and just across the border in Devon, it has a wealth of fine pubs, restaurants, supermarkets and tourist attractions.
Bodmin Moor, bisected by the newly expanded A30 is home to one of Cornwall's Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Reaching a height of 1,377 feet above sea level at Brown Willy, Cornwall's highest point. The heather covered granite moorland provides East Cornwall with the most stunning country views and rugged walks. Near Blisland you will find two of Cornwalls stone circles, the Trippet Stones and Stripple Stone Henge and just round the corner, one end of the famous Camel Trail. The 18 mile Camel Trail follows the route of the old railway along traffic free paths, providing a fairly flat cycle through Bodmin and Wadebridge out to Padstow, eminently suitable for families.The National Lobster Hatchery at Padstow neighbours Rick Steins empire on the North Coast. The Bodmin and Wenford Railway, the first steam operated railway in Cornwall, takes in 13 miles of countryside. Also just outside Bodmin is the Camel Valley Vineyard who have been winning awards for their home grown wine for the past 20 years. The National Trust have a number of properties nearby - Lanhydrock House, Trerice, Cotehele and Antony (used for Disney's Alice in Wonderland), Carnewas and Bedruthan Steps. Slightly further afield is the Eden Project in St Austell. Bodmin Jail built in 1778, notorious for its public executions by hanging, was the first jail to be built housing inmates in individual cells. The Jail closed in 1927 and is now a museum open to the public, which during the First World War housed the Crown Jewels and the Doomsday Book.
Dartmoor is one of our National Parks and covers 368 square miles of Devon, from tors and moorland, to valleys with streams and waterfalls, Dartmoor is rich with Neolithic and early Bronze age hut circles and standing stones, there are dozens of walks from easy strolls to demanding hikes. The highest point is High Willhays at 2037ft above sea level with stunning views in all directions. Princetown in the centre has the renowned Dartmoor Brewery with the famous "Jale Ale" named as a reference to Dartmoor Prison, this can be sampled at the Prince of Wales which originally was the home of the Brewery (it has now been moved to a purpose built facility just down the road!), alternatively the Plume of Feathers pub offers fine, warming, food, fires and awarding beer from St Austell Ales.
Guest from Staplehurst stayed for 4 nights.
Location wise this was excellent the lodge was large and lovely it was only simple things that let it down. The lodge seemed to have things that you wouldn't expect like books dvds and activities but then there wasn't a hair drier or oven glove which I would of expected also in the bedrooms the cupboards seemed to have random stuff like crockery under spare linen which I thought quite dangerous in one room a cupboard door was broken, the beds were very uncomfortable and need replacing in my opinion, also I asked for a high hair and what I got was something that was fabric that slid over a dining chair my baby couldn't reach the table and didn't have a tray and she normally feeds herself which she couldn't do and leaning forward she could fall out. This all said the lodge does have all the amenities kitchen and bathroom were great, tv hot tub etc were fab location beautiful Iwe had s great time it just need a bit of maintenance
Guest from Sutton stayed for 7 nights.
The lodges was lovely, very spacious. We particularly liked the hot tub. Its a good base to visit several parts of Cornwall and Devon. The site was very nice, the new addition of soft play was a great hit with our 2 year old.
Guest from Towcester, Northants stayed for 7 nights.
The lodge was clean but had a damp smell to it. Even clothes hung up in the wardrobes had a horrid smell to them sadly. There was a swarm of bees 2 metres away from our hot tub, which when raised with reception at honicombe, they didn't seem to want to deal with and were saying that as it was a private let between the owner and cornwall cottages, i would need to speak to them. After a bit of pushing and one of the staff coming to have a look at the swarm, they called the bee man out who came and rehomed the bees. Then there's the hot tub - it was lovely but the temperature went from 37 degrees up to 39 and again the site didn't want to help with this. The park itself is extremelly run down and needs revamping. There were men working up on the roof of one of the Dartmoor lodges retiling the roof but had no scaffolding or safety equipment, they just had a ladder. The park itself was peaceful and we had no issues with noise. A few essentials that should be included in the lodge are; oven gloves (had to use a towel to get our dinner out of the oven!), a washing machine (2 children so this would have been a godsend) and a guidebook of local places to go to (pubs, restaurants etc.) plus good beaches and places to visit would have been good. We had a lovely break and loved the hot tub. Our suggestions for improvement are to update and include the items listed above and also work with the park to ensure they know who covers what (maybe this could go in the guide book too?!).
