We arrived at Hunters lodge to such a warm welcome from the owners and my goodness me we where so pleased with the accommodation, it exceeded our expectations and we have fallen in love with the place.
A real home from home and as I adore cooking it's important to me to have a really good kitchen, I was thrilled to bits with hunters lodge kitchen..... With an excellent oven with multiple hobs it was perfect. Lots of kitchen equipment and we we wanted for nothing.
Special praise needs to be given to the bed........ It's was so comfy I had the very best nights sleep I've had in months AND we now intend to by the very same bed for us at home! The cotton bed linens where fabulous and as we hate poly cotton bedding it was so fantastic to have bedding that equaled ours at home....... Egyptian cotton is the perfect choice so well done Kitsham Holidays!
The sitting room was perfect, they even put the Christmas tree up for us and we loved it. We have a delightful Tibetan terrier who played happily in the safe enclosed garden and that, for us, was a massive plus, we love our dog to bits and she was well catered for at hunters lodge.
And I can't end this without telling you of the wonderful bathroom with a splash room shower and spa bath! Total relaxation for us and what a treat to soak in the spa after a long blustery walk on the beach.
We can't not wait to come back again soon........ Thanks for a truly wonderful stay. I recommend this wonderful holiday cottage 100%
This is such a comfortable, spacious and homely cottage to stay in but also very luxurious. There are beautiful views of the countryside where we enjoyed watching the sunset on lots of evenings. My 2 daughters loved the jacuzzi bath and the garden and wooden house to play in. On a practical note, it has everything you need for a great stay. The flowers and cake on arrival are very welcoming too.
We would definitely like to stay here again when we return to this part of Cornwall. I found this reasonable value for money too, given the high quality of the accommodation.
The cottage is in a great location for exploring Bude and the surrounding areas. We enjoyed time at Crackington Haven, cliff walking in Morwenstow and surfing at Crooklets and Summerleaze in Bude. We also used this as a base to cycle the Camel Trail from Wadebridge to Padstow.
I would definitely recommend this cottage to my friends and family.
Hunters Lodge lent itself perfectly to our first ever summer holiday in Cornwall with our one year old. Location is perfect for Wdiemouth Bay (9 minutes in the car) and Bude beaches (I'm sure there are more). You're out in the peace and quiet of the country yet accessible to everything as you need them.
As for the cottage itself, the attention to detail was exactly as we've come to expect. Beautfully done kitchen. I like to cook so the range oven, all the tools and accessories (even did Beef Wellignton one night!). The owners have thought of everything from TVs in every room, a whirlpool bath, great water pressure and perminantly hot water. The patio is a sun trap in the evening for BBQs and the Victoria sponge and flowers on the kitchen table were a very welcoming touch. The sofas were really comfy in the evening when we'd put our sun to bed, we relaxed watching a DVD or sat out and had a glass of wine in the sunshine. Not everyone appreciates all the little details but we certainly did. Will definitely be back.

A beautiful, spacious converted barn renovated to an excellent standard. No expense has been spared and attention to detail is brilliant. The kitchen is gorgeous with wooden beams, granite and fabulous cooker. The bathroom has a lovely jacuzzi bath, with a walk in drench shower. The lounge and both bedrooms are just as lovely too! The owners have catered for all guests needs and provide everything you could wish for, down to salt & pepper and fairy liquid! The cottage also has a lovely big west facing garden, so perfect for some afternoon relaxation!
Stunning views from all angles of the beautiful Cornish countryside. The beach is only 5 minutes drive away so this is a perfect location for a peaceful getaway. I would highly recommend a visit here and there is nothing I can criticise. We will definitely be returning soon!
We wanted to book a dog friendly cottage in Cornwall last minute for my birthday weekend! As we already live in a converted barn we have developed quite high standards of places we like to stay and the lodge did not fail to impress! We were charged a very reasonable rate per person which is alot better than paying a set price, especially when there are only the two of us. We are also quite dubious when booking dog friendly places because we know how some stinky pets are allowed on furniture and also we worry about how we can keep it clean. The lodge was perfect with leather settees and wooden floors throughout and most of all a large t.v with sky (added bonus) which is an absolute must when your out all day and want to spend your evenings in. In fact the attention to detail and work that the owners had put in to achieve this high standard was fantastic!
The location was perfect as we could walk our dog on the owners farm fields in the morning, hose him down in the garden and then take a short drive to the beach, Boscastle and also Padstow during the days. The weather was very wet but this did not matter when you have a warm and welcoming retreat waiting to go back to. We did not see 2 of the owners Caroline and James (live next door) very much but knew they were available if we needed them. We were comfortable with this as it didnt feel too imposing. On the day of our departure we chatted to Caroline and Denise who were very friendly and they allowed us to look around the larger accomodation the Hayloft next door. Our first thoughts were wow and we will definately be back, with friends, however happy to stay in either accomodation as both were fabulous!
