“Great place”
Reviewed 30 July 2017 for a stay in July 2017

Nice and clean chalet. We didn't use any attractions on the site as most of the time we were away visiting Cornwall. Unfortunately it's far from all main attractions so we were doing 70-80 miles every day to get anywhere.

It's very easy to miss the chalet and first time we passed by without noticing it. After turning from the main road you pass by "Penstowe Cornwall" sign. Then you have some houses called "Spanish Villas" and after about 300m chalet will be on your left.
If you get as far as "Penstowe Leisure Holiday Park" you have gone too far.

“Budget chalet. Nice site, but miles from anywhere.”
Reviewed 6 September 2015 for a stay in August 2015

Small, basic accommodation. Bedroom right next to a small car park so expect to hear comings and goings, but otherwise a quiet location. Freeview TV with a DVD player which can be plonked on a chair to plug it in.

All-electric. Buy the cards from the Manor House which also contains reception, bar, inside and outdoor pools, sports facilities, gym (extra charges appy), free WiFi. Staff very friendly and helpful. http://www.penstoweholidays.co.uk/ Large range of other properties on site, dependent on budget.

Odd that we didn't need to register the vehicle with reception.

Secondary independent pub on site with an outside pool.

Most of the site is wheelchair / pushchair accessible (we had a baby with us), but not quite flat. Nothing for older children on site.

Kilkhampton has a number of convenience stores, 2 pizza outlets, a chinese takeaway, 2 pubs and a good chip shop. Slightly further afield is Wei's Chinese at Tamar Lakes. Well worth the visit http://weischinesekitchen.co.uk/

Liked best: Very quiet site with good food and drink locally. No dogs in this unit, but allowed on site.
Liked least: Middle of nowhere. 20+ miles to get to a decent shopping centre, long distance to anything for kids

“Great stay in this Chalet. Clean, comfortable and welcoming.”
Reviewed 26 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

We used the location last year and this time went private. Use of indoor pool was perfect for our 10 and 9 year olds. We didn't use any other facilities. Great location for access to Bude and Widemouth Bay for body boarding. Crabbing in Bude. Weather wasn't good but the pool at the end of the day made every one happy. Chalet was comfortable and welcoming. Has DVD player so we watched movies in the evening. Two sofas so perfect for a family of four.
