This was our second year at Whalesborough. This year we came for 2 weeks and it was even better than last year. We really enjoy the luxury but laid back atmosphere of Whalesborough, it is so relaxing and easy. The kids loved the outdoor and indoor pools and the walk along the canal to the beach is to be recommended.... More

Whalesborough is lovely! The accommodation is very nice and very clean. It had all the facilities we needed (two pools, a spa, a gym and loads more). We had a great time!!! Just one thing is that the games barn could have more in it as it was a bit worse for wear. But apart from that it was lovely.... More

This is the third time we have stopped at Whalesborough - This time we stopped at Woody Platt. Accommodation was excellent - everything lovely and clean and just as we remembered but better. They now have the addition of a fantastic indoor pool, jacuzzi, sauna, steam room and tennis courts. All used by the family every day. Lovely walks with... More

We really enjoyed our 2 week stay here. Loved the lemon cake!! Great facilities, accommodation and location. There was lots for the children to do and explore, so they were very happy. Highly recommended.

This is the second time we have visited Whalesborough Cottages and again we had a great stay. This time we had the added bonus of the indoor pool which my children visited every day and really enjoyed. Most importantly our dog has a super time enjoying the long countryside walks

Whalesborough was the perfect place to stay to both enjoy the local facilities and to explore North Cornwall. The accommodation was superbly appointed. The pool and spa was clean and restful. The ambience of the grounds was tranquil and unimposing. This is a great place to come to enjoy cycling with kids off-road. The local beaches are great and perfect... More

We had an amazing week here. So much to do and yet so relaxing. First class, well appointed accommodation and facilities. We will definitely be back. We loved the indoor pool and spa, tennis courts and outdoor pool too.

A lovely place to stay with walks all around that can take you down the canal to bude or across farmland to the beach. The swimming pool on site was an added bonus. A great time had by us, our baby and dog!

We have just come back from a fantastic week here. The indoor swimming pool facilities are great, we made use of these every day for a couple of hours, from the pool temperature being perfect to the comfortable loungers around the pool and on the sun trap terrace (if the weather is nice enough to sit outside!). The cottage we... More
