“A Grand country house.... One of our top 5 stays.”

29 years of re-uniting for an annual holiday, Parnacott is easily in our top 5 list.

We arrived along a driveway which sweeps round to the front of the house, there's a wow moment as we got our first view of the Georgian frontage appearing across the far side of the lawn.
Lots of room for everyone, three sitting areas with the type of comfortable grand country house furnishings and all the ornate decorations that go with a period house, paintings of some of the previous historic owners, and many fresh flower arrangements in the rooms giving that touch of grand living. All the kitchen and dining equipment in plentiful supply, and made very clear to ask for anything that hadn't already been thought of. We made good use of the small billiard table in one of the sitting areas, weather was a bit damp to try croquet on the front lawn, but there's lots of books, jigsaws, toys etc. for all ages including our , err...."young at heart? " group... Wish we'd brought our children when they were younger as they'd have loved the dressing up clothes.
Would love to know more about the history of the house and it's family, the owners are fantastic people we really enjoyed chatting to them. A good choice for our holiday... we intend to come back sometime, which is very unusual as we normally prefer variety.

Just back from a long weekend at Parnacott House with family ranging from 3 years to 80 years old. Beautiful property which felt warm and welcoming, like a home, but which was also very special. Old family portraits, a grand staircase and sweeping driveway made us feel like we were in a costume drama. Both young and old found it enchanting.

Liked best: Magical nature of it
Liked least: Some might find intermittent Internet and mobile access a negative point, but I felt it only added to the holiday and the need to get away from it all.

We have just returned from a brilliant week at Parnacott. We are a number of families who come together every year for February half term. Parnacott is a fantastic house. It is beautiful outside and in. Take a look at the photos on their website and will see exactly what you are getting. It is so spacious but still cosy and wonderfully warm in a cold February week. There is a wood burner and a very cosy fire in the sitting room. The dining room is impressive and we dined each night be candlelight after pre-dinner drinks in the sitting room. Some of the rooms have ensuite; our's didn't but the two additional bathrooms are great and the showers although not state of the art are extremely good. There is loads to see and do in the area; we walked most days but there are some really good attractions to go to including the local swimming pool in Bude which is a wave pool. We will be going back. This place is a real find and would suit a group of friends and kids and dogs like us or a family gathering. And if you foreign friends they would just love it. Parnacott really feels like 'Just to the Manor Born' or a small 'Downton' and it is very special.
