“A real home from home in Devon”
Reviewed 19 August 2013 for a stay in August 2013

From the first phone call in January to the day before we arrived David couldn't have been more helpful. When we arrived at our 8 person lodge we couldn't believe how well it was kitted out with everything we would need. There was plenty of cutlery, plates, mugs etc and towels for everyone. We were also impressed by the amount of CD's and DVD's that were in the lodge for us to use if we wanted to. The kids found the shelf full of boardgames in the wardrobe within five minutes which pleased them.
The location was great as within two minutes of leaving the park you could be on the Atlantic Highway and be over the county border into Cornwall in minutes. Bude was only fifteen minutes away and had a Morrisons and Sainsbury's for food shopping and petrol etc. Summerleaze beach in Bude was fantastic as you could wade out for hundreds of yards and catch the waves to ride back to the beach. The kids aged 7-12 thought this was fantastic and we struggled to get them out of the water!!
We made good use of the free WIFI provided as we could access David's website for the pub guides etc. The New Inn in Kirkhampton ( 10mins away by car) has a fantastic food menu which is all home cooked and the largest portion sizes i've seen for a long time.
Overall we had a great week and wouldn't hesitate to recommend David to anyone looking for a holiday in Devon/Cornwall. A big thankyou David from Andy,Jo,Neil,Sandra and the four kids.

From the first conversations with the owners to the very last day I have nothing but nice things to say about our holiday. It really felt like home from home but with glorious views! We had everything we needed, and the whole week was just totally relaxed. The lodge was spotlessly clean, welcoming, and utterly faultless. So comfortable and the perfect bolt hole at the end of a day on the beach. We loved it.

The surrounding areas are just stunning. Our favourite was Sandymouth bay, check out the tide times and visit at low tide, you will be amazed. Bude is also a favourite now, Summerleaze beach is the place to go if you have a dog. You have to keep them on a lead but it's really beautiful.

We haven't had such an easy, stress free holiday before. Thanks for that, and we look forward very much to our next visit. Mandy, Jasmine and 'Billy' (who loved it even more than us!)

“Re-charge your batteries in the beautiful Devon countryside”
Reviewed 29 August 2012 for a stay in August 2012

Twelve members of our family stayed at Hartland last week, renting both Three Owls and Three Bears lodges. Although the weather wasn't kind to us, it didn't mar our holiday at all. The surroundings are just beautiful and the park is very safe, even for the little ones who were able to walk between the two lodges unattended (although we did take walkie-talkies which added to their fun and their parents' reassurance). The lodges are beside a golf course and as the owner kindly offers use of his golf clubs four of us enjoyed a round of golf. We would thoroughly recommend the lodges to anyone wanting a peaceful, relaxing time away from the crowds but with easy access to beaches and restaurants.
