We were lucky enough to stay at Forda in probably the best two weeks of the school holidays and yet again we had a fabulous time. Jim and Gill manage the sustain the same superb levels of cleanliness and comfort year on year.The children love the pool and games room and we all love the beautiful setting and the peace and tranquility of Forda.See you next year :)

2nd visit to Forda and even better this time round than the first visit (which would have rated a 5 rating as well). The whole Forda set up is superb. From the accommodation to the location to the spa treatments and to my favourite the fishing the whole experience is excellent. From Forda you have an excellent base to travel to north Cornwall and north Devon, well worth using Google before you leave to plan a few visits. We will be back for a 3rd visit as soon as possible.

My first visit to Forda was as a young boy and now I returned 30 years later with my wife and two elderly dogs for a two week holiday. Forda has been tastefully updated and is just simply an outstanding venue for those wating a quiet, peaceful, relaxing holiday away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. We stayed in an 'A' frame lodge which was spotlessly clean and we found the extras like milk, tea and coffee very welcoming on our arrival. Local amenities are good and the information booklet in the lodge is very informative and covers everything you will need. Forda has a swimming pool, games room, small beauty spa keeping my wife totally pampered and four fishing lakes keeping me fully entertained. We cannot thank our hosts, Jim and Gillian enough for providing us with an unforgetable holiday, everything we could have hoped for. They are always available for any queries or questions you may have and go out of their way to provide you with everything you need for that perfect holiday. So much so, we booked for next year, before we left - see you soon..

This was our first stay at Forda and what a wonderful find. The lodge was spotless and was very well equipped with everything you could need.
The pool complex was very well maintained. On a wet morning we were the only people using the facilities which was amazing during school holidays. We also made use of the games room and tennis court.
We booked a fishing lesson with Colin and thoroughly enjoyed our first experience of fishing. Colin is very knowledgeable and good company.
Even though the weather could have been better, we found so much to do. We hired bikes on the Tarka trail, walked parts of the coastal path & explored Tintagel and Hartland Quay.
We definitely plan to return at some point in the future.

We have just returned from a week at Forda. 3 Adults and our grandson in one of the A Frame lodges. The lodge was clean, comfortable and had everything we needed. The addition of a swimming pool & games room since we were there many years ago meant that although the weather was a bit damp & overcast there was always something to do before or after returning from trips out. The fishing was great and with lots of small fish to be caught in 2 of the lakes our grandson is now hooked on fishing.
The larger carp in the top lake proved too elusive for me but the roach & rudd were of exceptional size & in very good condition.
We have already reserved our lodge for the same time next year.

Our 23rd visit to Forda, staying in an A framed lodge for two weeks. We know when we arrive that the lodge is beautifully clean, lots of little extras like milk, tea and coffee are very welcome after a journey of over 300 miles. Very quiet and peaceful, extra lake for fishing this year. Always pleased to see Jim and Gillian who go out of their way to make our long awaited holiday comfortable and relaxing. Facials and massages always an extra treat, excellent swimming pool, beautiful walks and everything you need for a stress free holiday. Already booked for next year - counting down the weeks already!

Our first time at Forda, holidaying with another family and we booked 2 lodges next to each other. The site facilities definitely lived up to expectations - the swimming pool, games room and tennis courts were well used by the children (ranging from 3 to 16) every day. Onsite massges were amazing - book in advance to ensure availability ! - and Colin the fishing coach gave the teenagers a great few hours instruction, and they returned proudly with their photos of fish caught! Accommodation was very clean and had everything we needed - only minor improvement would be to have darker curtains in the bedrooms, and ones that fit the A-shaped windows - our kids woke very early because it was so light. But overall a really great week's holiday, with friendly welcoming people everywhere - on site and in the village :-)
