We absolutely loved our time at Penstowe and have made long-lasting memories with our children and friends. The staff were friendly and helpful. Our kids loved being able to swim everyday and the went crazy for the family entertainment in the evening. We had mixed weather when there but found there were fun and inexpensive places to take the kids... More

Upon arriving their was a sign at reception that check in was at the bar, upon checking in and getting our keys we made our way to hillside 9. Pathways were very steep and slippy and my partners mum actually slipped and fell. The chalet was clean and good basic essentials supplied. However we were given a 2 bedroom chalet... More

After checking we found our lodge and opened the door to be hit with a potent smell of mould, we aired the lodge thinking it had been shut up and needed a bit of fresh air, after the first night it was getting worse, complained to be told to go back the following day as nothing was available. We did... More

We stayed in one of the apartments in the main building - and had a fantastic time. The pool was great for young kids, and there was lots of other activities, including a kids disco in the evening. We took lots of day trips into Bude and Widemouth Bay, and would certainly return for another holiday! Thanks for a great... More

Old, damp, fusty, mouldy, needs revamping ASAP. Not enough storage for 4 people. Dirty cooker, worn carpets, cracked walls, paper peeling and mouldy, leaking pipes in toilets. Electricity not included in the price! Understaffed. Dirty tables in restaurant. Complained and said I could move, given keys, then I couldn't move as it was given to someone else for same reasons...

We have just returned from a Sun Holiday and we were pleasantly surprised by the whole experience! Having read some previous bad reviews we were slightly worried but we needn't have been as our whole week was very good. Reception (in the Manor House) was very good and the staff were friendly and helpful. Our 'bungalow' was lovely, spacious and... More

This is our second time at Penstowe and second time staying in one of the Coombe lodges. Really impressed last year hence us booking for our return stay this year. Upon entering the lodge everything seemed as it should - tidy, no funny smells etc. Was disappointed to find the previous holiday makers booking details in kitchen drawers alongside with... More

Pretty dreadful, the beer garden was surrounded by steel portal buildings with the guttering full of under growth. Staff were there to do a job and that was that. On a brighter note the stable bar we found was far more in touch, basic food but very eatable. The chalet was a private let which was very comfortable although lacked... More

This is the second time we've stayed here. The first time we stayed in a chalet, the second time we stayed in one of the apartments in the manor. The chalets are clean, comfortable and great to relax and chill out in. Big kitchens. The apartment was HUGE. We went with 3 other couples, plus 4 kids between us, and... More
