My family and I have just had the most wonderful holiday at Whalesborough. It was a special holiday as it is our 25th wedding anniversary and my husbands 50th birthday this year. The setting is idyllic and we had the most relaxing week. The facilities are fantastic. We had a lovely meal at the Weir and were very impressed how... More

Booking process easy. Arrived early on Saturday after travelling through the night. Unfortunately we could not access the cottage until 15:30, but that was part of the terms and conditions. Was a bit surprised that we were not allowed to use the spa facilities until after check in, but we headed into Bude and it did not detract from the... More

We really enjoyed our stay in Long Down - the cottage is well-equipped, and the bedrooms are spacious and very comfortable. The indoor pool, sauna, jacuzzi and steam room were great ways to relax when the weather was poor, and there is lots to do in the area when it's better. Bude is easily accessible via a pleasant stroll down... More

We have just booked for our third year . The accommodation is excellent as are on site facilities. Our grandchildren loved the indoor and outdoor pools and the indoor play barn was a great hit with them. We especially appreciated that dogs are welcome and our dog had a wonderful time meeting other dogs at the Weir restaurant where we... More

Knowing that weather in Cornwall can let one down even in July, I spent more time than usual choosing the accommodation and facilities for this year's stay. I'm glad I did, as it rained solidly for the first 3 days! The accommodation at Whalesborough was every bit as gorgeous and comfortable as it looks in the picture - and the... More

Very clean. Excellent pool and spa area. Beautiful location and friendly staff, however weren't given any information about spa/beauty treatments, should we have wished to have taken advantage of them. Not particularly relaxing whilst youngsters given a swimming lesson, (although instructor excellent). Feel certain times should perhaps be reserved for such activities or at least clients should be advised a... More

We stayed in June and whilst we could complain about the weather we certainly couldn't complain about the accommodation. We stayed in the Nettlecombe cottage and we're delighted by the excellent standard and amenities. The owners James and Sharran went out of their way to help with our unsettled dog. Couldn't recommend this place highly enough.
