“superb accommodation in wonderful location”
Reviewed May 6, 2016 for a stay in May 2016

The owner David is an extremely welcoming and approachable owner. He has furnished the property to a very high standard and it was a pleasure to stay with our children and their partners. The setting is beautiful and there is the added bonus of David's two dogs. It is an extremely dog friendly holiday let and allows easy access to many of Cornwall's beautiful locations. We would particularly recommend Cotehele House and Quay as the gardens are spectacular. We also enjoyed cycling the Camel Trail and visiting Stiblyback Lake for some kayaking. I would also recommend the circular walk along the coastal path from Widemouth Bay to Bude and back along the Bude Canal to Widemouth as the varied scenery is wonderful. In the wooded area along the canal from Bude you can pick wild garlic in the Spring which is lovely in a risotto. We would hope to come back soon as there is still so much to explore.

Dear Guest,

Many thanks for writing such a positive review for us. I am delighted that you all enjoyed your stay in Hendra and that you appreciated the boutique furnishings. We are very proud of our dog-friendly status too, and my two terriers always love to meet the guests when they can. It sounds as though you certainly made the most of our location, and it's great you found time to explore the stunning coastline. Cotehele is one of our favourite local attractions, just further down the same river that runs through our village - a truly remarkable building, and as you say, spectacular gardens. I am pleased to read you were able to make the most of the local sporting opportunities as well - cycling, kayaking and walking - you really kept busy! Surfing, rock climbing and horse riding will have to wait until next time! It was a privilege to host your holiday this year, and you would be most welcome to return again sometime.

With best wishes and thanks,

David.

“Excellent”
Reviewed October 23, 2015 for a stay in October 2015

We have just returned from a week away at Hendra. We went with another family and had a lovely time. The children had lots of room to play and we're really safe in the gardens. The trampoline and football goals were a real hit! As for inside.... it was such a good house for us all plenty of room in the living area it was great all being open plan. The kitchen had everything we needed and everything was really clean. The welcome pack and wine was much appreciated after a long jouney . And the flowers in the rooms was a extra touch too. The pictures dont do it justice we were surprised by the size when we arrived and how very nice every room was. Thanks to David for being so helpful beforehand. We would defiantly recommend this cottage to others.

Dear Guest,

Many thanks for taking the time to write such a kind review of your stay in Hendra. I'm delighted that you all enjoyed your stay with us. It's great to see our younger guests making the most of our play equipment - there's certainly plenty of space to let off steam and the trampoline is always a hit! I'm so glad you appreciated the space and comfort of Hendra, and that you liked all our fresh flowers - as you can probably tell, we're rather fond of flower arranging! The welcome pack is another favourite amongst our guests, and you're right - it's just what is needed after a long journey! I do trust your journey home wasn't too bad and hope you might consider visiting us again soon.

With thanks again for the review and very best wishes to you all,

David.

This was a mind blowing property, surrounded by rolling hills. We were a family of 9. We stayed at cottage Hendra. Beautiful, very comfortable. had all the amenities of a modern home. Flly Equipped with washing machine. dryer, dish washer.
Free wifi.
Located ina tiny village but short drives to lots of pretty places.

The owner David had kept a welcome package of wine tea coffee etc & some traditional Cornish Scones Strawberry Jam & Clotted Cream!!! simply divine. David ws very helpful. Gave us a lot of tips for sightseeing around in the area.
Its a good base to go see typical cornish villages. Bude, padstow, Tintagel, St Ives, Penzance, St. Micheals Mount.
Theres a play area for kids, trampoline, Bbq, loads of games, toys.

The photographs on the website is exactly how the house looks!!!

“Fabulous cottage”
Reviewed April 11, 2015 for a stay in April 2015

The cottage was superb. It was done up to a very high standard with your own patio / garden facilities. There are a total of 4 cottages so ideal for families / groups. It was Set in gorgeous, well maintained gardens, which offer bbqs, plenty of seating, a pair of woodpeckers, a trampoline, playhouse, sandpit and football goal. It was ideal for us to do an Easter egg hunt for the children. Check in was straightforward and the owner was really friendly. We were welcomed with fresh flowers, hot cross buns and Easter eggs. A lovely touch. There was also a list of local events, free use of wifi and a selection of magazines available to us in our cottage. There is also a room where you can do laundry, have use of a freezer as well as use their selection of games. The location was ideal for us and we did walk around the local area down to the river and canal. We would definitely recommend these cottages and go back again. Plenty of people agree in their visitors' books! Thank you for a lovely stay.

Dear Guest,

Thank you very much for writing us such a wonderful and comprehensive review of Hendra cottage, and for writing such a kind comment in our guestbook - we're delighted the girls enjoyed the Easter pack. We love the fact that you enjoyed your stay with us so much and that you appreciated our extensive grounds - an Easter egg hunt is a brilliant idea; we have just the right variety of gardens! You wouldn't be the first visitor to appreciate the wildlife either, though I think seeing both woodpeckers makes you rather lucky! As you can imagine we put a lot of effort into making the cottages 'just so', and we're genuinely delighted that you've noticed all the little touches. It was really wonderful to host your Easter break in Cornwall, and we sincerely hope we might see you again. You would all be most welcome!

Best wishes and thanks

David

“Fantastic cottage & secluded location”
Reviewed October 28, 2014 for a stay in October 2013

person found this review helpful

Stayed a week in Hendra last year; the facilities are fantastic, and extremely well decorated - far above what we'd expected from a holiday cottage.
Felt really at home, with a very welcoming host - and small touches such as fresh flowers and a bottle of wine in the kitchen!
It's in a lovely peaceful spot in the middle of the countryside; very quiet and away from it all. Although the free wifi in the cottage was a real bonus!
Wouldn't hesitate to stay again, especially with a family group.
