We spent a lovely week staying in Longdown. The cottage is very well equipped and so comfortable. The grounds are kept beautifully. The pool and spa are great. Whalesborough is in a beautiful area and well placed for exploring North Cornwall and Devon. The canal walk to Bude is really nice as is Bude itself as is the walk across... More

This is the second time we have stayed here but this time we had the dogs with us. The set up for dogs is fab - massive crates, bedding, throws for the furniture and dog wash. Plus plenty of great walks on the doorstep. The accommodation we stayed in was great - beds are very comfy, spotlessly clean, decent showers... More

Always a warm welcome at Whalesborough for us and this time with our dog. Amazing location with fabulous facilities. So much to see and do on the doorstep. The spa is an asset in the dodgy October weather.

Have just had a 3 night, off season visit to Whalesbourgh. 2 adults and 2 small dogs left feeling totally pampered and in love with this special place. We will be back- reasons why: immaculately clean and well looked after; family business with real customer care focus; eco orientation, but no deviation from 5 star standards; beach within walking distance,...

We visited W Club Spa late on Saturday evening to wind down after a day of walking and surfing. The spa is absolutely stunning! Beautiful modern and sparking clean pool area, with Jacuzzis and modern sauna and steam rooms. Lots of space to relax on sofas and a water cooler if you're feeling a bit thirsty after a long stint...

Just returned from whalesborough holiday cottages. We stayed in barley park, this is all on one level so easily accessible. It had a fenced area to let the dogs out. Very nice cottages, they have dishwasher and washing machines. Very quiet on the site, indoor pool and jacuzzi looked lovely although we did not swim. The canal path walk to... More

I would highly reccommend these holiday cottages. They are in a beautiful setting just 2 miles from Bude. The cottages are 5 star with everything one could need. They are dog friendly with excellent facilities for washing and cleaning dogs, that may have ventured into places they shouldn't. The pool is fantastic and very relaxing, the gym is better than...

For the second time we stayed at Whalesborough- cottage Warrens. Just like before the cottage was excellent, you have everything you might need, great bedroom ensuite bathroom, every cottage has its proper garden, easy when you travel with your dogs ! Although the cottages are dogfriendly, you find a very clean house when you arrive ! A beautiful indoor swimmingpool... More
