“Enjoyable stay”
Reviewed 15 May 2015 for a stay in May 2015

This house is very spacious giving all 12 of us adults room to be together but enough space to be apart as we required. The furnishings and carpet are looking a little tired. The sofa cushions in the 'snug' were completely flat and no amount of plumping could rescue them! It definitely needs replacing. The upstairs lounge had comfy leather sofas so that was great for chilling in the evening.
The kitchen was large and spacious. The cooker is a little on the small size and a range type would have been better for us to cater on. It would have been nice if a bottle of milk was in the fridge when we arrived as has been the case on many holiday homes we have rented.
The beds were very comfortable and the bedding although a little dated in design smelled fresh and clean. The towels were very small and very old. I suggest you take your own towels as the ones offered weren't particularly serviceable.
The swimming pool is fantastic and everyone had a great time using it. The garden is large and would be ideal for children to play in.
Our biggest gripe would be NO INTERNET CONNECTION all week. Although it states it's available at the property it never worked the whole time we were there & with very poor mobile signal it was extremely frustrating for the two uni students who had finals to submit and our self employed daughter who needed to work! The internet cafe in Bude came to the rescue! If you definitely want internet I wouldn't recommend a stay here.
Overall we were pleased with the property but it does need updating and as above a caveat should apply to the internet. The owner was very helpful with a couple of our queries and everyone loved the cows next door!

Management Response
20 May 2015
Hi

We are currently planning to renew the carpets and curtains after the summer season and I agree that this is due

With regard to the internet there was a fault on the line coming into the house, unfortunately Sky who provide our service had a 7 day appointment time to repair this.

It is fully working and whilst at only 1.4mb it is not broadband it is more than adequate.

We are in the process of taking BT as the provider due to better customer service and will upgrade to broadband as soon as it is available in the area.

We hope to see you again in the future

“Wonderful holiday cottage.”
Reviewed 7 March 2015 for a stay in February 2015

This was our 10th cottage holiday and it did not disappoint, magnificent pool that was used everyday. The kitchen was brilliant and had every utensil you could think of, the cottage was just great every where and Ray was very helpful. I must say the dogs enjoyed the garden and especially the paddock. Good time had by all.

“Perfect place for large families or groups”
Reviewed 20 January 2015 for a stay in January 2015

This house really feels like a home as soon as you arrive with beautiful countryside views and a short drive from the centre of Bude. The kitchen diner at the centre of the house is a real plus for entertaining (and throwing a party!) and is very well equipped. The pool and sauna are a real plus. The bedrooms are spaced throughout the house so provide privacy when needed and also have comfortable beds and more than enough bathrooms/shower rooms to accommodate full occupancy. The house was lovely and warm with plenty of hot water. We all enjoyed our stay here and are sure to return.

“Fabulous House”

We had a lovely time in this House over half term. We were three families all with teenagers (12 in all) and there was plenty of room for everyone. The indoor pool was fantastic and the kids made use of it every day. We couldn't fault anything and are now looking forward to hopefully returning again soon.
