Cornwall is famous for its beautiful coastline of granite cliffs and golden beaches with the bonus of a unique landscape of moorland and sub-tropical valleys.  Using Valley Lodge as your base, coastal towns and villages offer a great day by the sea.  The open spaces of Dartmoor and Bodmin Moor beckon. National Trust properties suchas Cothele and Buckland Abbey are nearby.  A little further afield are great attractions like Flambards, the Seal Sanctuary and of course, the Eden Project.

Less than 2 miles from Honicombe is the River Tamar which, with the River Tavy and River Lynher, forms part of the ancient border between Cornwall and Devon. The river runs from the north coast near Bude, south to Plymouth Sound. These rivers form The Tamar Valley which was designated as an 'Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty' (AONB) in 1995. In the valley there are great walks and mountain bike trails to be enjoyed - why not take the scenic train journey down the valley from Gunnislake to Plymouth.

In 2006 The Tamar Valley was assigned World Heritage Status in recognition of its importance as a cradle of the industrial revolution. In the recent BB2 TV series 'The Edwardian Farm', archaeologists Alex Langlands and Peter Ginn, and historian Ruth Goodman set up home at Morwellham Quay on the banks of the Tamar - once one of the busiest ports in Britain. Over twelve months they brought it back to as it was in its Edwardian heyday. 

It is a great area for your family holiday with so much to enjoy!
