It is also ideally situated for exploration of the lovely Cornish coastline, including Tintagel and Boscastle to the north, and Looe, Polperro and Fowey to the south. Close by is the beautiful National Trust property of Cotehele, with views from the gardens over the Tamar Valley and the pretty town of Calstock.

About Andy Holliday

We love this part of Cornwall and now that our children are grown up we try to spend as much time as we can staying in the lodge ourselves. Our children also still love it and visit whenever they can.

Andy Holliday purchased this house in 2002

Why Andy Holliday chose Calstock

We love the setting, the views and the peace and quiet and the on-site swimming. Also a great base for exploring both Cornwall and Devon.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We have had a wonderful week in the lodge and have enjoyed beautiful Devon and Cornwall. I am always sad to leave the SouthWest as there is so much more I would love to see.

So yes, we would love to go back sometime.



Thanks for a great week in your house.

Lovely Lodge and relaxing stay, ideally situated, very friendly

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay and even on rainy days we were able to enjoy some lovely walks which are within easy reach. Bar restaurant on site was excellent - as were the pools. All the family catered for and remained happy, including children and dogs! (So lovely to have our dogs feel welcome too). Knew there wasn't a washing machine before we booked so am NOT making a criticism but it would have been lovely had there been one. Please consider Andy as with four children and my 'other half' very regimental about how much luggage we are allowed to take on holiday, as well as restricted space with seven of us in the vehicle its difficult to not be able to wash clothes after muddy walks! (I feel it would be a tad expensive to use the laundry facility on site for the amount of washing I get through even when on holiday!)

Definitely want to go again and hope to be booking up soon. Thanks for all your help.

Great area to explore

  • 3 of 5

Nice location. House could of been slightly better equipped. Another full shower would of served up to 8 people better.

Maintenance support was unresponsive to our phone calls.

The site itself looks tired and needs updating. Tennis courts were not usable. I would if happily paid alittle more to have modern usable leisure activities on site.

You do need to travel to explore the area, which has so many places to visit and things to keep a family busy.

We would definitely holiday in Cornwall again,but expect alittle more from the accomadation and on site facilities.

Owner's Response: Sorry to hear that you were disappointed. However, we have to just say that the lodge is 'as advertised' with one shower. Guests needing two showers should obviously consider alternative accommodation. We did not receive any messages or calls about any maintenance issues what-so-ever. We have a maintenance team of two people on 24/7 call out. Agreed on the tennis courts which is why we do not feature/mention them anywhere in our advert. Seems a little churlish to complain about a facility not expected or advertised! Great that you liked Cornwall.

Great lodge in a fantastic location!

  • 5 of 5

The property was easy to find with the directions provided, myself and 2 friends stayed for a week to celebrate our 30th birthdays and had a fantastic time. The lodge is very spacious, clean and well equipped. The on site facilities are great and the site is a good location for a lot of local and main attractions. Although the weather was not kind to us during our stay, it did not dampen our spirits! Would certainly recommend to friends and family.

Very clean and spacious property

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at Honicombe Manor. The lodge is very spacious especially as there were 7 of us and 2 dogs! The site has a nice indoor swimming pool and a small outdoor pool. The children particularly enjoyed the games room with its wifi. Please be aware though that the site is very steep so not recommended for people with mobility issues. We would definitely stay here again

Fantastic holiday lodge in beautiful Tamar Valley

  • 5 of 5

A fantastic lodge in the most beautiful setting! The house is great - modern, spacious and comfortable with all you need. The large balcony with views over the valley is a particular highlight. Quiet and serene location within easy reach of local gems including Cotehele and the River Tamar, plus all that Devon and Cornwall have to offer. The listing describes the property very well - we found the house clean and well-maintained. Excellent communication from the owner was much appreciated and made our arrival hassle-free. Highly recommended.
