This was our 4th visit to Whalesborough but we usually stay in one of the older cottages Longdown but as this was unavailable we chose to stay in one of the newer cottages Beachcombers. This is a single storey cottage and immaculately presented and fully equipped with everything you could possibly need for a holiday. Unfortunately the weather was mixed... More

The cottages and site facilities are first class, with friendly and knowledgeable on site staff; there are ample walks and facilities for dogs, as well as facilities in the cottages for dogs. Local amenities can be accessed by foot or bicycle, or, if you want to go further afield, by car, as the main road is easily accessible. We couldn't... More

We had a wonderful week here over Easter 2015 with two children, 5 and 7. The cottage was gorgeous and very comfortable; the restaurant was welcoming, friendly and served great food for both children and adults; and the pool and play activities were a great hit with the children. Both children are begging to go back again. Can't rate it... More

We have had 3 holidays at Whalesborough, at different times of the year and in different cottages. The cottages are wonderful, spacious, really clean, comfortable and contemporary in style. The new leisure and spa facilties are fab and great for all the family on a bad weather day. The atmosphere at Whalesborough is laid back and relaxing, away from it... More

It was the first holiday we've had with our puppy and we can't wait to come back. The Cottages are lovely, high spec and doggie friendly. All the additional features such as the Spa and Gym made it feel like it was a holiday for us, whilst the puppy had loads of fun with lovely walks and our private garden... More

We have been visiting Whalesborough now for 3 years - we've been 7 times staying in 2, 3 and 4 bedroom properties and have also spent 2 New Year's there. It is an amazing place. All properties are 5* quality and comfort. Our children - now 6 and 10 - just love it so do our 2 dogs - and... More

James and Sharon Proudfoot have created a brilliant set up at Whalesborough. Our family of four with kids aged 5 and 10 had a fantastic week staying at the Beachcombers cottage. The weather was pretty rubbish the week we stayed but it mattered not as we were able to relax in the pool, sauna or steam rooms of the W... More

Pros ... Tremendously quiet cottages in the off-season (Feb), great light, space and warmth throughout the place. Great TV and docking station, fast Wifi. Loved the American-style fridge with ice/water dispenser. Very generous additional basket of wood for excellent burner was just £3 (half what I pay for a bag of kindling in London!). Nice lemon cake on arrival and... More

Everything about our experience was great, from the beginning James was fantastic at answering email queries even before i made a booking. We stayed at Barley Park for two nights & arriving to a homemade lemon drizzle cake made the start of our stay even better. Barley Park is a wonderful one bedroom cottage, it was surprisingly spacious (the photos... More
