Our 3rd New Year visit. This time with 6 month old puppy, 3 year old springer and our 2 boys. Thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Facilities make e everything easy. Space not an issue even with a loopy pup. We'll be back in the summer and can't wait. Oh! And nice touch with the New Year's Eve bubbles James - much appreciated!...

The house was great and and was very well set up for taking the dog. Will definitely return. We made use of the pool on site which wasn't busy. There was plenty of choice for restaurants nearby. There is a restaurant onsite which does a lovely lunch.

We spent a week at Barley Park at the start of December. Cottage was fabulous - it's great to find 5* accommodation which not only accepts dogs but fully welcomes them. The location is brilliant, there are nice walks to the coast and along the canal to Bude. The pool is a great facility and I used this on a...

Just spent New Year at these well appointed modern cottages with large family contingent ages ranging from 3 months old to 85. Definitely recommend and would go back. Special mention to the pool facilities that were better than excellent and the large well equipped play barn. James is very discreet but very welcoming (particularly enjoyed New Year bottle of Prosecco-...

We weren't disappointed in this beautifully appointed one bedroom cottage which was spacious, beautifully decorated, and warm and cosy. We had visited the spa before and made best use of it again during our stay & had an amazing treatment each. Lots of lovely walks to enjoy, close to Bude and Widemouth Bay. Looking forward to coming back again!

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...

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...

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.
