  • "We had a great time at La Bella Vista, would recommend the lodge to anyone."

    The bed in main bedroom did have a creek quite a bit although I'm sure it can be sorted easily enough and a little disappointed that the on site facilities were not open due to refurbishment. It was an ideal base to for both Cornwall and Devon.

  • "La Bella Vista is a lovely, clean modern holiday let."

    It has everything you need for a relaxing stay. The standard is great. Very nice touch with the scones, also the blankets and dog treats are very thoughtful. The owners have thought of more than just the basics.

    Thank you for your lovely feedback. It is very much appreciated. We look forward to welcoming you back next year Property Owner

  • "We absolutely loved staying at La Bella Vista."

    It’s a lovely property with beautiful views in very peaceful surroundings. Everything was very well thought out and each member of the family had plenty of space and comfort throughout the stay. The property was spotlessly clean, well organised and the cream tea left in the fridge as a treat went down well! The only slight issue was the water supply, with 5 guests to get showered but only one shower can be used at a time, it makes getting out slower. This is the only negative about the property and despite this I’m sure we will be be back. It’s within a short easy drive of a choice of beaches so the kids were very happy. The on-site leisure centre pool and entertainment was great when the weather wasn’t. We would definitely recommend a stay here.

    Really pleased you enjoyed your stay and our apologies regarding the water pressure. It is an issue we are continuously trying to improve and have fitted a water pump to ensure good water feed for the showers. We endeavour to further improve and are discussing options with the water authority. Look forward to welcoming you back in the future Property Owner

  • "Lovely setting,well equipped,only issue was water pressure,bit expensive for a half hour swim."

    Thank you for your feedback. Unfortunately the water pressure in the area is poor at the moment and we have installed a pump to ensure the showers work well. As for the swimming pool this is a privately owned business and we have no control over their charges but will pass on your comments. We're glad you enjoyed your stay otherwise and look forward to hosting for you again in the future Property Owner

  • "Loved the property."

    ..kept well and decor beautiful. Lots of places to visit...weather not good so spent a lot of time in property. Recieved cream tea in fridge...lovely touch..thankyou. The only problem is the patio doors door work..the water feed is not good...if you have a shower there is no water else where in property. We don't have a dog but could smell dog smell all over couch cushions. If you have a dog was well catered for...dog treats and blankets!! Overall enjoyed our stay. thanks

    Thank you for your feedback. I can confirm that our maintenance attended the door during your stay and found it to be working. It has been oiled to mitigate further problems. Regarding any dog smells we can only apologise for this. The lodge is thoroughly cleaned before new guests and we would like to think guests keep pets off furnishings. Going forward we will ask that our cleaners pay attention to this problem. We look forward to welcoming you back in the future Property Owner

  • "We had a wonderful stay at La Bella Vista, the accommodation was clean and very well equipped, weather wasn't great so couldn't make use of outdoor furniture which was a shame."

    The only downside was water pressure but it didn't stop us.

    Thank you for your kind feedback. Really pleased you had a good stay and liked the facilities. Would love to welcome you back in the future Property Owner

About the location


Bude 4 miles.

Kilkhampton is an historic Cornish village, 4 miles from the popular Victorian seaside resort of Bude, one of Cornwall’s premier holiday locations. With its old church, village shops and atmospheric village pubs, Kilkhampton is a lovely place to relax after a hard day exploring the stunning beaches and spectacular coastal scenery for which the area is famous. Bude’s beaches attract surfers from all over the country and when conditions are right you’d be hard pushed to find better surf. When the tide is out, miles of golden sand and hundreds of rock pools keep visitors occupied for hours. The South West Coast Path, and many other rights-of-way winding over the clifftops and through lush green fields looking out over the sea, make this area a haven for walkers and lovers of the open countryside. For those who prefer staying closer to home, a good shopping centre and a selection of pubs, two clubs and restaurants are on offer. Bude canal, a registered nature reserve, passes through the town, and rowing a boat along its calm waters or walking the towpath among the beautiful (and friendly) water fowl that live among the reeds is a great way to spend an hour or two. Within the area there are also 2 golf courses, an indoor swimming pool, bowling alley at the leisure centre. A perfect location for all that North Cornwall has to offer.

Note: Passes to Penstowe Leisure are available at an additional cost for unlimited access to the swimming pools and facilities. There is also the King Arthurs Penstowe within the on-site Manor House which includes takeaway and on-site food and drinks and will fully be open in May 2022.
