Callington, Cornwall, England
Honipine House is special. It is individually decorated, ideal for all year round holidays because it is warm, comfortable, spacious, and cared for as it is our own holiday home. We have often visited at Christmas and New Year in the past, and it is lovely for this time of year. An end cottage in a row on the wooded Honicombe Manor estate, PRIVATELY LET, cottage only, not swimming pools or Gym and it is NOT possible to pay to go into these leisure facilities. We recommend the Tavistock pool 8 miles away, with wave machine, as it is far superior. The Bar/restaurant at Honicombe is available with lots of events, music nights, in season. The cottage has 2 good size ground floor bedrooms, 1 double, one twin, with pine wardrobes, drawers, bedside tables with lamps, mirrors and lots of clothes hangers. The twin has a dressing table and se... Read more

Beautiful, very clean and well-equipped holiday home with lots of local info and books. Our host was lovely and my family and I most definitely had a great stay here - the kids didn't want to leave! We would certainly recommend this place :)

About the neighbourhood
THE ESTATE ON WHICH THE HOUSE IS SITUATED IS DOWN A LANE AND HAS TALL TREES AND MATURE SHRUBS SET IN GREEN LAWNS WITH PATHS AND A STREAM AND A POND. THERE ARE COUNTRY VIEWS TOWARDS DARTMOOR. ALTHOUGH A COUNTRY ESTATE, MANY ATTRACTIONS ARE EASILY ACCESSIBLE SUCH AS WILDLIFE PARKS, NATIONAL TRUST HOUSES, MUSEUMS AND THE TIN MINING HERITAGE TO EXPLORE TO MAKE YOUR HOLIDAY HERE ONE TO REMEMBER WITH PLEASURE.The Donkey Sanctuary is 200 yards away and The indoor Swimming Pool in Tavistock is great with its waves and slides and a very reasonable cost, set on the park with a canal, tumbling river, tennis and bowls. An arts Theater/cinema is here, a coffee shop in both the pool building and the Arts center.. There are many pleasant walks.
Getting around
Local buses stop outside of Honicombe, just yards from Honipine House. which go into Callington, Calstock and Tavistock. The local train station is at Gunnislake just a mile away, with ample parking.. The train is a very scenic ride of 55 minutes, single track passing over the Calstock viaduct and the estuaries on route to Plymouth, where the main line takes you further into Cornwall or Devon.The buses from Callington take you to Liskeard where you can board the local train to Looe, the beautiful fishing village on the south coast. From Callington buses take you all around the lovely Cornish and Devon areas.

How to get there
Railway: BRANCH LINE AT GUNNISLAKE 2 MILES , PLYMOUTH: 25.0 km
Ferry: PLYMOUTH: 25.0 km
EXETER AIRPORT IS THE NEAREST AIRPORT depending on where you come from, BUT BRISTOL IS 1 1/2 TO 2 HOURS AWAY BY CAR. IT IS WORTH GETTING OFF THE MOTORWAY AT THE TWO BRIDGES/PRINCETOWN EXIT TO DRIVE SLOWLY OVER DARTMOOR AND SEE ITS INCREDIBLE BEAUTY AND SAY HELLO TO THE WILD PONIES.
THE TRAINS FROM THE MIDLANDS, (BIRMINGHAM) TO CORNWALL, FOLLOW A TRACK ALONG THE COAST IN DEVON NEAR TO DAWLISH. THIS IS REALLY BEAUTIFUL. In Summer flights into Newquay Airport, Cornwall, are available from Ryanair, 45 minutes away by car.local buses outside Honicombe Manor are yards away from Honipine House.
