Overall experience was excellent. Staying in the Barn with everything a family needs. Beautiful surroundings with a swimming pool, games room and a beautician on site Forda is an excellent holiday retreat.

Myself, husband and our Jack Russell Tilly stayed in an A Frame lodge for four nights. The lodge was comfortable and well equipped. Being able to take the dog was a real bonus for us. My husband enjoyed fishing in two of the lakes, catching Chubb and Roach. The facilities are excellent and the spa treatments on offer are very... More

We are really pleased that you enjoyed your stay with us but sorry that you noticed that you were in a pet-accepting lodge. Our cleaners are very thorough but it is true that this was a pet-accepting lodge and there had been dogs staying in previous weeks and immediately before this booking. We accept pets in half of our lodges... More

As a family we have been coming to Forda since 2005, sometimes twice a year if we are lucky. This year it was our puppy, Lilly's first visit and she loved it as much as the rest of the family. The setting is heavenly and lodges are spotlessly clean and well stocked with the essentials one needs. I liken it... More

We chose Forda because it ticked all the boxes for our family. Close to the Bude for beaches, shopping and dining. Great mixed coarse fishing and a Spa. We stayed in the barn which is spacious and comfortable. The owners were very hospitable and always on site offering help and advice. The ladies and children enjoyed the pool and spa... More

This is the third time we have stayed here, been once in summer school holidays a few years ago, between Christmas and New Year a few years ago and then now in early September. If you want peace and quiet, this is a good place to be. Very little passing traffic, virtually silent at night. I love the indoor swimming... More
