Penstowe Holiday Park
Reviewed October 7, 2012

checked in on the 5th oct and was ecspecting to be in a tin caravan due to this holiday being £9.50 sun offer,was really pleased to find we was given a chalet that had everything you need for a holiday.the grounds are well kept and staff were really polite and helpful.
the only downside was the chalets are damp and we left a day early due to this getting on our chest.
the evening entertainment was brilliant and I give credit to the staff who not only work hard during the day but also entertain you in the evening.... would I go back again? .... yes but in the summer months.
my aim was to spend time with my 2 daughters on a weekend away and I achieved this ..... thankyou penstow staff had a great time.

p.s my girls said the ice-cream with sprinkles and choc sauce was yummy x

We booked Penstowe on the 'Sun' newspaper holiday offer. We arrived on the Friday afternoon and checked in. We opened the door to our 'chalet' and we were hit with a smell of damp. My husband had to remove around 10 spiders from the various rooms which proves the chalet had not been cleaned for a while. You had to put a pound in the electricity meter constantly as it didnt last long at all.

My husband sat on the sofas and within minutes started weazing and sneezing, clearly dogs / cats had been allowed on the sofas and not been cleaned properly afterwards.

Air freshers were placed in various rooms to try and hide the stench of damp.

We checked out the following day as it did not feel like a holiday at all.

Avoid this place! Never again! Oh and there is absolutely nothing to do in Kilkhampton!

This was our first visit to Penstowe Park and was chosen via Hoseasons. The entertainment was very good and hosted a great selection of tributes from the entertainment team, but the childrens entertainment only lasted between 30-45 minutes but the staff were extremely polite and friendly.

The Combe lodge was clean and well equipped, providing everything we required for our stay.

We didn't take advantage of the Fitness Centre but took the kids to the swimming pool twice during the week, which didnt have slides but meant that we could improve on the kids swimming.

Apart from these majority of the time we spent out side of the Park and in town or down the beach in Bude.

We stayed at Penstowe Manor and found the entertainment to be very good, the staff were friendly and worked hard to entertain, The apartment we stayed in was a bit cramped,especially with 3 dogs, the first thing we had to do was top up the electric!!. No washing machine or washing line although there was a launderette but no line, Good base for visiting beaches and Bude was well worth a walkround.

A large safe site in an excellent location for good beaches with reasonably good facilities for children. The pool was better than expected though strange that the poolside cafe was closed in August and when we went to the cafe adjacent to the bar for coffee it was clear that staff on a break were being served first and we were totally ignored, not even acknowledged. After 10 minutes we walked out.

The site promises free Wi Fi but internet access is rarely available. A member of staff informed us that no-one ever remembered to switch on the router!

So overall a pleasant site if you can cope with the amateurish and often poor levels of customer service.

We went to Penstowe Park and found it to be really nice. The chalet was clean and well equipped and the grounds were lovely. The swimming pool is beautiful and the staff at the manor are really friendly and helpful. The standard of the entertainment team was excellent and is one of the main reasons our trip was so enjoyable. (Thank you guys) We would definitely return! Look forward to seeing you all again!

We went on a sun holiday expecting it to be a bit naff especially after reading some of the reviews. Im pleased to say it was excellent. Very clean and nice accommodation (imagine 70's furniture but very clean). We didn't pay for any electric as the person before us had put loads in the meter. However, to make it a 5* I would have liked to see a few extra bits; scissors, a Hoover, a baking tray and some better pots and pans. If you go don't forget to take; towels, toilet roll, washing up liquid, sponges, tea towels, can opener and bottle opener.

We didn't use the entertainment so cannot comment but the inside pool looked lovely and the receptionists were always friendly. It was a nice relaxed quiet place to go. I would definitely go back again.

If you're doing a sun holiday I would recommend paying for 2 extra people than what you have as the accommodation is a bit small and we needed the spare room for our suitcases ect.
