Facilities on site are fantastic, especially the indoor pool and the games barn (football, basketball, pool, badminton - all indoors) as well as the two tennis courts.

Fantastic location, great facilities and beautiful houses. I think this development is hard to beat. We walked along the coast path to Bude and back along the canal, ate at the Weir, spent time in the pool, gym and barn - fabulous for all the family and the dog. We definitely hope to be back.

The cottages are the most dog friendly and luxurious cottages EVER! My 8th trip here and as always the staff (James and Sharan Proudfoot) give 5* service. The spa area is wonderfully clean and a joy to use.

The three bed house was beautiful. Log burner and under floor heating. Very clean. Gym, pool and spa great. Spa treatments a little pricey but we all enjoyed them very much indeed. Took the dog, had own private garden. Really enjoyed it and will go back.
