Wow what a great half term! Happy husband, happy kids, happy dogs equals happy me! Forda Lodges was just lovely. Jim and Gillian were so friendly and welcoming. Our lodge was lovely and clean, warm and even tea, milk, biscuits already there for us. The location is perfect, away from everything, but not to far. The kids loved the pool,...

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...

We stayed over the New Year's with our dog. The cottages are in a beautiful spot overlooking a lovely lake. The accommodation is comfortable and contains all necessary amenities. The spa area could do with minor improvements (eg a relaxation area for the sauna or heating the entrance corridor and providing a bench to sit for people taking their shoes...

Great location & facilities. Lovely pamper sessions. Lake fishing good. 2 good local pubs. Thanks Jim & Gillian, who are good hosts. The area of Bude, Sandymouth, Hartland point all worth a visit. We will be back.

We stayed at Forda in August 2016 for a 2+2 family holiday and it was like a breath of fresh air. Gillian and Jim are wonderful hosts who catered for our every need. We stayed in one of the A-Frames and it was a perfect base to explore the locale from. The grounds are so peaceful, great for walks and...

Set in a superb relaxing site with plenty of wildlife and walks nearby. Very helpful owners who were attentive without being intrusive. The pool is lovely and the spa treatments are excellent. Sadly the A frames are in need of updating and whilst very clean and functional are rather spartan and cold in October without having a noisy blow heater...

Overall experience was excellent. Staying in the Barn with everything a family needs. Beautiful surroundings with a swimming pool, games room and a beautician on site Forda is an excellent holiday retreat.

Our 27th visit to Forda. An ideal place for families to enjoy a relaxing holiday Lodges are always spotlessly clean, well equipped and comfortable. Excellent swimming pool. Forda is set in acres of quiet countryside with 4 fishing lakes, but is within easy reach of the local village. and shops. Bude is only 5 miles away, with lots of beaches...

Myself, husband and our Jack Russell Tilly stayed in an A Frame lodge for four nights. The lodge was comfortable and well equipped. Being able to take the dog was a real bonus for us. My husband enjoyed fishing in two of the lakes, catching Chubb and Roach. The facilities are excellent and the spa treatments on offer are very...

A last minute Autumn break was needed during half term and we decided to go back to Bude area (had not been for 3 years or so). We used to go 2-3 times a year having previously got family in the area. We found this place via TA and it was a great find. Very spacious and nice location was...

We are really pleased that you enjoyed your stay with us but sorry that you noticed that you were in a pet-accepting lodge. Our cleaners are very thorough but it is true that this was a pet-accepting lodge and there had been dogs staying in previous weeks and immediately before this booking. We accept pets in half of our lodges...
