Guestbook comments from the owner

What a lovely holiday we had, staying in 3 The Manor. The bungalow was everything we hoped for and more. We visited Sandymouth, which is just beautiful, Summerleaze Beach, walked along the canal, dined at Bay View Inn at Widemouth Bay, had a walk and cream tea at Padstow... we could go on and on. To sum up, we had a wonderful time!

What a fantastic base to start your holiday from!

  • 4 of 5

What a fantastic sight to start your holiday from. The chalet has everything you need (and more!) and could't be happier with the facilities around the site. All the food is fabulous and having the pools and games rooms was a God send on the not so good weather days!

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for your feedback. We're so pleased you were happy with the bungalow and the facilities on-site were useful with the changeable weather we've had this summer. We're delighted you enjoyed your holiday!

Neat, well equipped chalet, great location

  • 4 of 5

Lovely little chalet with great well equipped kitchen. Bright and airy. Bedding could do with updating as a bit bobbly and maybe some storage scents in the wardrobes and chest of drawers. Great base for exploring the many beautiful beaches in Bude. Kids entertainment on site was also excellent. Excellent communication from the owners. Would recommend.

Lovely chalet, in a nice quiet park

  • 5 of 5

It's no surprise that this is our second time staying at this chalet, it's so bright and homely that yet again we are sad to be going home! The chalet is well equipped with everything you would need and more. The site is nice and quiet but still plenty to do for the kids.

Overall we have had an amazing week & look forward to returning in the future!

Damp and in Need of Updating

  • 1 of 5

The property was damp and smelt musty. Overall it was really dated, and in need of a complete redecoration. The location was quiet when there weren't all of the other holidaymakers on the park walking past the chalet, and the neighbours had access across the front of the property, so no privacy.

  • Date of Stay: May 2017

Owner's Response: We were shocked and disappointed by your review which is at odds with previous guest reviews of our bungalow. We regularly check the bungalow and also obtain feedback from our housekeepers to ensure that everything is in order. We have checked again since your stay and can confirm that the bungalow is not damp, does not smell musty and the décor is as pictured on the website; up-to-date with a coastal theme. As shown on the website, the bungalow is semi-detached so the neighbours share the pathway. As described, the bungalow is on a holiday site, however, it has a long frontage of around 30ft so other holiday makers pass by at some distance away. We are sorry you did not enjoy your stay but confirm that the photographs and description of the bungalow are accurate.

Great location for exploring area

  • 4 of 5

Practical, comfortable, simply but thoughtfully equipped chalet, providing an excellent base for exploring the area at a very reasonable price. Great for families, with plenty of wet weather alternatives to the beach - the Milky Way was a big hit with our two-year-old, as was the children's entertainer on the Penstowe Manor site. Excellent communication/customer service from friendly and helpful owner.
