Enjoyed a lovely week at Forda. Great location to explore the North Cornish coast. We were treated with a warm welcome and given a run through of all that was on offer. The facilities were superb. Beautiful lakes to fish and enjoy birdwatching. Superb swimming pool and games room. All so clean and pristine. Great surfing at Dog friendly beaches... More

Returned to Forda after 20+ years and found it had only improved on perfection! The standard of accommodation is excellent, our A frame lodge was spotlessly clean and comfortable. On-site facilities (inc tennis court, indoor swimming pool, games room, family games) are readily available and more than adequate for the number of guests. The grounds are well maintained and accessible... More

We have stayed at these self contained lodges on a number of occasions. Quite frankly it doesn't get any better than this if you want to chill out and relax. The lodges are well set out and well equipped. Great view over the bottom lake. Swimming pool, sauna, Jacuzzi, beauty salon. Also sports room and tennis court. Plenty of fish... More

This place is great if you are a fishing person or you just sit and watch. Everything is very clean and kept to a high standard. Would we visit again. YES we would for sure. Many thanks Steve and Mary Marriott and oh yes Chester our little Saint Bernard puppy.

Travelled here from Yorkshire for three nights with our old dog. Initially we had wondered whether Forda/Cornwall was too far to travel for a few nights, but so glad we did! The location of Forda is perfect for exploring both Devon and north Cornwall, we visited Padstow and Port Isaac to name a few. The site itself is immaculate, beautiful... More

What brought us back to Forda for the fourth time? Great hosts, clean well-appointed accommodation in wonderful grounds with four fishing lakes within a very short walk. Good catches guaranteed (in our experience). Short drive into Bude which is a lovely unspoilt seaside town with some great eating places. Jim and Gillian, the aforementioned hosts are so fortunate to own... More

Once again a thoroughly enjoyable stay at this peaceful haven. The fishing was excellent and so too are the beautifully kept grounds. It's a great base for exploring the magnificent North Cornwall coastline and we enjoyed splendid cliff walks every day. Can't wait to return. Chris and Meryl from Derby.

We have just returned from a lovely relaxing week at Forda lodges and would thoroughly recommend the location for anyone 'wanting to get away from it all'. The site itself is spacious and maintained to an excellent standard and the lodges were clean, comfortable and welcoming (the complimentary pint of milk and bottle of cider was a very nice touch!)....
