  • "Or party of 15 had a wonderful holiday."

    The various premises were beautifully furnished and comfortable and the outdoor pool was fantastic. We used all the facilities too - BBQ, sauna, hot tub and tennis court iand enjoyed walks in the woods belonging to the property. The only slight inconvenience was that the Coach House only had a single oven so we often had to use the ovens in the other properties in cooking dinner and also bring some of therir seats over so that we could dine together - 8 at the dining table and 7 at the adjacent breakfast bar. The owners were very friendly and helpful - eg uncovering the pool whenever we wanted and recovering it afterwards. We were only 40 minutes from Bude for a day out at the seaside and also had a trip for a walk and swim on Dartmoor. The nearby Roadford Lakes were well worth a visit too - overall a great holiday thoroughly enjoyed by everybody.

  • "Manor Cottages has a great range of facilities—eight double bedrooms and bathrooms, a large swimming pool, hot tube, tennis court, barbecue and extensive attractive grounds— perfect for a large family or group of friends."

    The hosts are charming, interesting and very helpful. The main drawback is the somewhat unreliable internet in some of the buildings. The hostess Li provides amazing oriental dishes if requested, or will cater for a whole elaborate meal. The place has four buildings, three of which are set around a courtyard.The fourth building, which adjoins this group, is where the main kitchen and sitting room are located, together with three double bedrooms. Activities tend to centre there, though those wishing for peace and quiet can use sitting areas found in each of the other buildings.
