Beautiful scenery and comfortable, clean lodges. Dogs are welcome and given treats by the owners! The village is a short drive away and has a co op, pubs, butchers and chip shop. Ideal distance for sandymouth and nortchcott beaches

Another fantastic stay at Forda Lodges with the extended family. We have been visiting for over 10 years! This time we celebrated our Son's 21st Birthday. Fantastic location and good central location for visiting the superb beaches nearby. Always sorry to leave - already booked for October for our 'Forda fix'. Facilities are superb and very clean. Thank you Jim...

Welcoming little retreat that is dog friendly. The cottages are fairly basic but have everything you could want. You don't have to be into fishing to stay here. The pool and games room are clean and well maintained, they even leave a couple of table tennis bats/balls in your lodge for a rainy day. Beautiful quiet setting.

Returned to Forda for a Spring break. Great to see Gillian and Jim again who were as always very helpful and friendly. Fishing was superb, hot stones massage very relaxing and plenty of places to eat out within a few miles radius. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay, many thanks, and hope to return in the near future.

A last minute booking from a recommendation on Facebook, it didn't disappoint. Gillian & Jim could not have done more to make us feel welcome. We stayed in one of the lodges which was perfectly adequate for what we wanted. The spa treatments were invigorating and relaxing (make sure you book it for the start of your break) and we...
