“Fabulous Forda!”
Reviewed September 16, 2013

We returned again this year for our 2 weeks of total relaxation to find everything as good as ever.
A warm welcome from Jim and Gill, the lodge clean and comfortable , the surrounding grounds well kept and packed with wildlife.We enjoyed our tennis , using the games room and swimming pool.What can I say that's not been said before. Well done and thank you to all the team for your hard work that makes Forda such a super place to stay. See you next year!

Had a fantastic stay at forda yet again, staying in the The Beeches this time for a family of four. As expected the accomodation was excellent very clean and cosy, loved the decking out the front especially first thing in the morning with a nice cuppa watching the sun rise.

Jim & Gillian are very welcoming hosts and very helpful as always, Me & my girls all had a lovely spa treatment (highly recommend) very relaxing.

There's a lovely pool, jacuzzi,sauna & gym and a well equipped games room for all to enjoy. If you love the outdoors theres some very nice walks around the area or some great fishing on the lakes, my daughter had great lessons by Colin and caught quite a few fish.

A great place to eat out is The London Inn, Fantastic food and very welcoming.

In some ways I dont want to share my review but If you havent been and are thinking about booking DO IT there is so much to see and do in and around the area no matter the time of year or weather.

We cant wait to go back next year

Room Tip: All Accomodation is great.

Just returned from our first visit to Forda. Lovely accommodation and grounds. Everything immaculate. Excellent fishing on all lakes. Peaceful and quiet and good location for visiting other attractions although as weather was good spent most of our time lakeside. Jim and Gillian were made us feel very welcome and we look forward to being able to make a return visit.

What a wonderful holiday. The lodges are fantastic quality and very clean. The spa treatments were very good and relaxing. I enjoyed excellent fishing with over 100 Crucian Carp, 30 plus Tench and Bream one day on the pole from the Meadow Lake. Then another day, 14 Carp to 12lbs plus numerous Bream, Roach and Rudd from the Top Lake.
The weather treated us well at the end of August, with warm Sunny days.
We had lots of days out visiting, places like Boscastle, Port Issac, Tintagel and Clovelly.
We had good evening Meals in many places, but can recommend the New Inn in Kilkhampton. Excellent quality, good value home cooking.
A truly superb holiday.
Well done all at Forda

Me and my husband and our twins had a lovely week at Forda Lodge. The lodge was very comfy and cozy and had everything we needed. I even tried the fishing with my husband and really enjoyed it. The lakes had plenty of fish and there were enough private areas to fish. The pool was not as warm as we would have liked but our twins got used to it and enjoyed there first swim. Bude beach is fantastic and not too far away. The local Morrisons came in very handy. We had a lovely meal at the London inn so would recommend. Overall the holiday was great and the owners were lovely and friendly. Would like to go again sometime.

Our first family holiday to Forda but definitely not our last. Recommended by family, Forda surpassed our expectations for self catering holidays. This was our third visit to Bude and we've finally found somewhere with enough space for a family of 4. The lodges are clean, spacious and fully equipped. The girls made full use of the spa treatments which left them refreshed and relaxed (highly recommended). With 4 lakes brimming with fish, it provided the boys with an opportunity to disappear whenever there was a spare moment (including a couple of early starts).

Overall, highly recommended as an ideal family holiday location.
