Yet another great week in Cornwall. Spoilt by the weather (again). The cottages, as ever are comfortable and we very quickly relax into our holiday routine. Swimming in the indoor pool first thing in the morning followed by either breakfast outside at our cottage or down at the weir, makes for a great start to the day. Over the years...

Stayed here for a week. Two cottages for the family with teenage children. 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. Cottages are very well set up and the facilities for dogs are beyond compare - heated dog wash, hair dryer...

We stayed at Whalesborough at the start of April, a three generation family holiday including a baby and two dogs. The accommodation, Sheep's House, was excellent - clean, spacious, comfortable. We were doubly rewarded with wonderful weather so were out & about - but the cottage would also suit wet weather days. The Spa was made good use of! A...

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.
