Nestled in the countryside of the Tamar Valley, Honicombe Manor resort has everything you need to relax, unwind and make memories. With a heated indoor swimming pool, a seasonal outdoor pool, a restaurant and tennis courts, this resort’s popular with those of you who love to stay active during your time away.
A setting in the heart of the Tamar Valley (an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty) makes this a lovely setting for a dog friendly break, and you’ll be able to pick up the cycling and walking trails in the surrounding area. Right on the Devon / Cornwall border, the resort’s a handy base for those days out, and you’ll find a day out to suit every kind of holiday and every kind of weather.
There’s nothing better than that first dip on the pool during a family break, and they’ve got those refreshing dips covered at Honicombe Manor. There are two swimming pools right onsite, and the indoor heated pool means you can enjoy a dip no matter what the season.
There’s a pool for the toddlers, a sauna and a changing area, and the water’s always heated to a minimum temperature of 30 so you’ll never feel chilly. During the summer, you’ll be able to enjoy the outdoor pool too, and it’s open every day until 5pm. So, don’t forget to pack your costumes…
Bright and spacious, the onsite restaurant makes an elegant setting for that special meal during your stay. Open most evenings from 5pm – 9pm, and for Sunday lunch between 12pm – 3pm, the restaurant also offers entertainment during high season.
And, if you prefer to cosy up in your home from home and dine, a takeaway service is also available. For those evenings that are about picking your best outfit and popping open a bottle of fizz, the onsite bar serves the usual favourites too.
There’s something about being in Cornwall that makes you feel all energised and active, and the resort’s home to a tennis court and a gym for those of you who like to keep busy. The facilities are open from 9am to 5pm every day, and there’s also an indoor tennis table in case you get a wet day!
For those of you who like to squeeze in the odd workout during your breaks, the gym’s home to treadmills, a cross trainer and fitness bikes. And, for that post-workout rest, you can head to the sauna to relax those muscles.
Out and about
There’s plenty to keep you busy on the resort, but one of the lovely things about Honicombe Manor is its location. You’ll find cycle trails and walks right on your doorstep for those family adventures, and some of the region’s best-loved attractions are within easy reach by car.
Cotehele House and Gardens is a National Trust house, and with gardens that slope their way down to the river Tamar, it’s a gorgeous spot for a stroll. For a unique day out, Morwellham Quay is a restored port once used for the shipping of copper ore along the river, and these days it’ offers a fascinating insight into life in the 1860s. Or, slightly further afield, you’ll find The Eden Project., the market town of Tavistock and Dartmoor National Park.
