This place is a great little gem, especially if you have kids. We stayed in a lodge, which was spacious, clean and had everything you would need. There is a great open area, fishing lake and a play park. We also went on a little stroll around the area, which was beautiful. The children we so happy to see chickens, rabbits and the goats, and we took a stroll to see them every day :) there is also a play park and bar. Very accessible and disability friendly which is another huge plus!The only negative is that we didn’t stay longer! But we will 100% be back again in the very near future :)Highly recommend, 10/10 🤩

Fantastic family campsite. Everything you need for a great get away. Facilities are well looked after and the fishing lake is full of fish (impossible not to catch). Lovely waking up to chickens and rabbits. Owners are really friendly too. Such a peaceful place and will be back for sure.

Really lovely holiday home accomodation.. if you want space and self catering .. we had Acacia which gave us a large lounge..two bedrooms 2 bathrooms..and big kitchen and a study! All good quality and spotlessly clean. Fresh eggs in the morning and lots of space for children. Location is in the wilds a bit, about 25 minutes east of Bude. A great find! Recommended, and far better than a hotel room was the same price!
