“What a wonderful stay we had – a superb family holiday with our daughter and family staying in nearby Woodlark. We appreciated the cream tea on our arrival and the immmaculate cottage so well equipped. The grounds are delightful and we came the right week with sunny weather and flowers and shrubs and trees beginning to burst into bloom.What great memories we have and hope to return one day.”

The Henson Family stayed in Swallow and Woodlark, April 2017

“Thank you for another excellent week. We have lost count of how many times we have come; 8 or 9 we think. We were too late booking last Easter and had to go to another cottage with similar but inferior set up at Widemouth. Our return speaks for itself.

As the fledglings are flying the nest, not sure we will all be back again, but I hope most of us will. We have seldom been rained on here and love the facilities”

The Davis Family stayed in Manor Apartment, April 2017

“I have spent 4 days here, solo to rest and recuperate. It’s been a wonderful break and I have been so comfortable and cosy at Fulmar. It has all you need and a very comfy bed. The facilities have been excellent and the owners extremely attentive and kind. Thank You!”

Diane and her dog Millie stayed in Fulmar, April 2017

“A great week spent at Broomhill Manor. Weather a little up and down, but it is only March! Alan and Linda are very welcoming & friendly – they had all of the toddler kit we asked for already, plus some bits we didn’t ask for all set up in Kingfisher when we arrived.

The on-site facilities were great for us and our two year old – the pool is lovely & very safe for family swimming, and the outdoor play area also went down well. We even had a little dance in the bar to the original “Rockola” juke box which was loads of fun! Bude is a nice little town, all the beaches are pretty and accessible too with pasties and scones a plenty!”

The White family stayed in Kingfisher, March 2017

“Our 7th trip to Broomhill in the last 5 years. It never disappoints us and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The hot-tub was a real bonus and Cormorant is a great cottage to stay in. We did lots of horse riding and went in the swimming pool almost every day. We also enjoyed the games room and long country walks. 🙂 Everyone should go to The Tree Inn, but we also enjoyed The Preston Gate and Rosie’s. We enjoy going to use the Broomhill bar for drinks and playing lots of games.” Emily (9) and Alex (6) and Family

The Simpson family stayed in Cormorant, February 2017

“Thank you so much for a wonderful stay in a magical place. Being in the hot tub under the stars was truly magical. The dogs loved the beaches – and the dog biscuits! We’ll be back next year.”

The Kelly family stayed in Woodlark, February 2017

“We thank Alan and Linda once again for a fabulous time at new year. Jessica was really good with the little kids entertainment. New Year here is lots of fun! We can’t wait to come back in August, maybe even before! We would like to give another big thank you to the whole team at Broomhill for making this such a lovely and amazing experience.”

The Palmiero family stayed in Heron, New Year 2016/17

“First time at Broomhill and we all had a super time! So much to do both on site and in the surrounding area. With 2 young boys in tow (3yrs & 10 months) it was great to stay somewhere fully equipped for little ones. Certainly lessened the stress of packing & all the usual baggage!  Visited lots of the local attractions including Tamar Otter Sanctuary….Launceston Steam Train to New Mills Activity Farm….Eden Project…Summerleaze and Crooklets beaches…

For the Adults, we would highly recommend Hazel who has a lovely range of treatments. The back massage was bliss! All in all a wonderful break away & would love to come back. Thanks to Alan & Linda for providing such a wonderful and happy place to stay and hopefully we will see you sometime soon!”

The Collingridge family stayed in Nightingale, September 2016

“We’ve had a lovely family holiday. The facilities are great and the children’s swimming has come on leaps and bounds!!”


The Wink family stayed in Swallow and Sandpiper, September 2016

“We’ve had a lovely week, thank you Alan & Linda. The weather has been mixed – but the beauty of Broomhill and why we booked, is that there’s plenty to entertain a toddler in the rain! We’ve been to the beach many times (Summerleaze & Crooklets). Recommend Crooklets with the little one for the play areas. We ate at Rosie’s a couple of times too. Our 18 month old son had his first pony ride on Suzie. In fact it was a holiday of firsts as I got to pull my first pint in the bar! The place has really exceeded our expectations!”

Snooker Room
The Healey family stayed in Cormorant, September 2016

“We arrived home yesterday from a week at Broomhill & just wanted to say thankyou for making our stay so comfortable. We stayed in Swallow & our family in Chough. The cottages were of a very high standard & very comfortable & very well equipped. You have thought of everything. The whole complex has a lovely family atmosphere & is very peaceful at night. We enjoyed the two pools & picnicked in the lovely gardens which are very well cared for. The laundry & games room are a great thing to have on sight & again very well looked after. We will definitely be returning to Broomhill & recommend it to our friends.”


The Bazely family stayed in Swallow and Chough, September 2016

“This is our first stay at Broomhill Manor and it won’t be our last. The cottage has everything you need which was great as so often this isn’t the case and I’m sure if we needed anything it would have been provided. Our girls (13+11) have had a brilliant time and have used the pools and games room on a daily basis and even when the weather hasn’t been to good there’s been plenty to keep them busy.

Finally the stables. Brilliant. The staff are very friendly and my girls who both ride, have learnt a lot from Katie. The horses and ponies are well looked after and very good for either beginning or more experienced riders. I would highly recommend a lesson or hack.

We intend to come back next year and I hope you have a holiday as good as we have!”

The Thomson family stayed in Puffin, August 2016

“Another amazing week at Broomhill Manor. The cottage was so cosy and welcoming. The hot tub was such a bonus as we used it almost every night. The weather has been beautiful, which has made the refurbished pool a sun trap.

Thanks for a good stay, hope to see you soon!”

The Slack family stayed in Nightingale, August 2016

“Another wonderful week at Broomhill. Really enjoyed the outdoor pool and its temperature! The double decker bunk bed was a real hit with the little ones, who will surely be disappointed to return home to a normal bed! We also took part in the archery again this year and had a great time. I would really recommend the archery to everyone. The children were overjoyed at the pony rides they had and I should have booked for ourselves to ride with them so that we could share the experience.

Thanks for another lovely week!”

The Howell family stayed in Woodpecker, August 2016

“This is a great place to vacation for a family. We had a blast! The children really loved the swimming pools which they used almost everyday. The owners seem to have put a lot of effort into the details and it was evident. This is our first time here and we’d  seriously consider returning for more family holidays!”

The Frederick family stayed in Chough with their twins and 3yo, August 2016

“We have had such a wonderful and relaxing week – Broomhill is such a lovely place! Thank you to everyone for being so friendly – it made the holiday! We highly recommend the daily croissants and pain au chocolat – delicious! We also loved the outdoor swimming pool, tennis court, hanging baskets and the games room.”


The Meyfroidt family stayed in Kittiwake, July 2016

“Spent a lovely week here in Swallow (one bedroom). Really pleased with Broomhill. Facilities excellent for us and our toddler. Perfect base for a week on the Cornish/Devon border. We will definitely come again but we will book a larger cottage to escape from the child! Blessed with the weather – only one poor day but we still had plenty to do here. Lovely week”


The Kavanaghs stayed in Swallow with their toddler, July 2016

“A great week in a lovely location! Both the pools were great and we enjoyed the horse riding, playroom, gym and the bar! Nicky’s food was good too. Beach days were great and we’d recommend Widemouth, Summerleaze and Crooklets. Tintagel was great too. Thanks to Alan and Linda for a nice stay”

The McCardles stayed in Dunlin, July 2016

“Leaving Fulmar Cottage today after our 2nd break this year at Broomhill. Wonderful week – weather great, facilities fabulous as last time. Thanks Alan, Linda and Toby. Wonderful recommendation to go to Nortcott Mouth beach – tide out, wonderful for dogs and great character Margaret Frost who runs the tea garden. Will definitely have to come back particularly as failed personal challenge of getting into the Sea Pool at Summerleaze Beach – good excuse for third holiday this year 🙂 “

The McEwens stayed in Fulmar with their dog Beau, July 2016

“Well, not Cornwall’s finest week weatherwise! But our 4yo and 1yo weren’t to know and enjoyed their “beach holiday” nonetheless. The indoor pool and playroom were life savers in the rain and we did get to many of the beaches – if briefly… Also brilliant were Helen and Katie at the stables for our 4yo’s pony ride. Generally terrified of animals, they got her on and riding – a huge confidence boost! We loved the local grocery shop on Lansdown Rd in town – a real treasure trove of local yummies! Had a great holiday!”

The Allen-Williams family stayed in Round House, July 2016

“Yet another great week. Broomhill is a great central place to visit many beautiful places. It’s always a pleasure to stay here”


Mr & Mrs Harrow stayed in Swallow, June 2016

“Another lovely stay here. Were here 5-6 years ago but this time we were blessed with a week of sunshine so were able to go on the beaches and outside pool.

The facilities are excellent & the garden, all the pots & baskets an absolute joy. Hope we shall be back”


The Stockwell/Tyler family stayed in Manor House Apartment, June 2016

“What a cottage + what a place! Thank you so much for your lovely hospitality. The kids loved every minute as did we. You have a unique and wonderful set up here at Broomhill and we will be talking of this as our first proper family holiday for many years! Facilities are great, I possibly wouldn’t leave the gardens if I had half the chance but we did. We ventured out to find a beach and wasn’t disappointed by Crackington Haven – great opportunity to do some serious rock pooling. Oh and Kelly’s ice creams! Thank you so much. We will be back again for sure!”

The Pike family stayed in Sandpiper, May 2016

“This is our first time at Broomhill Manor and I am sure that it will not be our last. The cottage is absolutely lovely, a real home from home. The complimentary scones and cream were a very welcome surprise and Dexter the Labrador was very excited by the dog biscuits! The cottage was lovely and clean and had all of the amenities we could want and more.

The site itself is lovely and we have made good use of the pool, games room, tennis court and bar. Thank you Alan and Linda for a wonderful few days. I hope we can come back again soon.”

The Tyler-Smiths stayed in Fulmar with Dexter their Labrador, May 2016

“Fantastic holiday! (Round House) cottage is cosy and well-equipped and really lovely. Great location and lots to do on site if you don’t feel like venturing far. Our 16-month old had a fab time in the pool and play room. Pottered around Bude one day, Tintagel Castle and Morewellham Quay – both worth a visit. Lovely garden for a BBQ with grand parents who were staying in Grebe cottage. Looking forward to returning”

The Owen-Powells stayed in Round House and Grebe, May 2016

“This has been one of our favourite holidays ever! You made us feel right at home immediately. We’ve thoroughly enjoyed our walks around the estate – thank you for sharing your beautiful home”

The Moran family stayed in Round House, May 2016

“This is our first visit to Broomhill and as a family we stayed in Puffin, Seagull and Fulmar. We’ve all had a fantastic week and made full use of the pool, bar, snooker, games room, tennis court and archery. There has been something for everyone and the kids haven’t been short of things to do. We’ve had plenty of days out and can recommend Bude beach, Port Isaac and Padstow. Alan and Linda have made us feel very welcome and provide a lovely, comfortable environment that is safe for the kids to run around. The cottages are beautiful and have everything we needed. We are already thinking about our next stay”

The Vowles family stayed in Puffin, Seagull and Fulmar Cottages, April 2016

“We had a lovely stay here again at Broomhill Manor. We enjoyed the archery – even Alex (aged 5) was able to have a go. Sophie (aged 8) was very good…..We made good use of the BBQ and hot tub!! Our favourite!! Looking forward to coming back one day.”


The White Family stayed in Kingfisher, April 2016

“Thank you for the most amazing holiday at Broomhill. We had a wonderful apartment, very clean, comfy beds. The facilities are excellent as there is loads to do for the family. Our highlights were probably the archery, the Easter Egg hunt and the indoor pool. We went swimming almost every day and the pool was so warm…..We are definitely coming back next year for another amazing, awesome, brilliant holiday!”

The Ko/Halstead family stayed in Manor House Apartment, March 2016

“What a lovely holiday villa! Although the weather and good health were not on our side this time, we have no hesitation in recommending Broomhill Manor, Kingfisher lodge. We’ll be sure to return in warmer climes to make the most of your excellent facilities and get our toddler a pony ride


The Black family stayed in Kingfisher, February 2016

“We had an epic holiday at Broomhill once again. The weather was terrible but that didn’t stop us from having a great time. New Year’s Eve in the Manor house was really good fun. Thank you Alan and Linda.

We want to come here in the summer so we can go in the outside pool and maybe go horse riding.”

The Palmiero family stayed in Kittiwake, New Year 2015

“This is our third time at Broomhill but first in Seagull. No hot tub, but close to the pool and has everything we could possibly need. This weekend was the Bude for Food festival so even more going on in the little town than normal. Loads of cooking and kids sessions in the day and entertainment in the evenings. Friday was a comedy night and Shappi Korsandi was on and the Saturday was live music, great fun!We have all loved our stay at Broomhill.  We had a massage with Hazel at Broomhill which was amazing – really relaxing and reasonably priced. Favourite restaurants – Bay View Inn, Elements and the Tree Inn, and the Widemouth Bay Café for breakfast. Recommend Raven Surf School  – friendly and fun instructors who know their stuff! Thanks Alan and Linda for a great long weekend and we will definitely be back in the New Year!

The Busby family stayed in Seagull with Sammy their dog, September 2015

“We have all loved our stay at Broomhill.  The cottage is very well equipped and soon became a home from home. The on-site facilities are wonderful! We used the indoor pool every day and will miss it terribly. Our daughter was particularly excited to get “home” to the cottage each day to go swimming before dinner. She also enjoyed a pony ride on Misprint and LOVED it! Such a lovely experience for us all. The grounds are all very well looked after. Would love to return…. Thank you Alan and Linda”

The Boddington family stayed in Dunlin, September 2015

“We have had a really wonderful time at Broomhill Manor. A lovely, beautiful, clean Apartment. On arrival Alan showed us around the grounds which has excellent facilities and beautiful gardens. The children were so excited when they learnt what they could have a go at including Archery which was run by Zena, an excellent tutor who was passionate, friendly and made sure we all had a great time. The children also tried horse riding for the first time which was great. Couldn’t believe it when little Lucy, aged 2, rode for 1/2 and hour, smiling continually the whole time. Would thoroughly recommend it! Bude is a great place with many lovely beaches, shops restaurants – especially Elements. This proved to be a wonderful week away which we would totally recommend and will certainly return if we come to this area again.”

The Chalker family stayed in Manor House Apartment, September 2015

“The Hadfield family have had a lovely stay here, 3 nights were not long enough!  We will come back. It’s a beautiful location and fantastic grounds and accommodation. The perfect place for our family to gather in preparation for our Son’s wedding. Thank You xxxx”

The Hadfield family stayed at Broomhill Manor for a family gathering, September 2015

“We have had a wonderful week in the sunshine! The long list of baby things ave all been provided and left lots of room in the car. Highlights for Tomas (3 ½ ) and Sophie (1 ½) were the sandpit, playroom and swimming pools and wide open spaces have made for a relaxing week for all.  Many thanks for making us so welcome”

Fantastic facilities, we have enjoyed using the indoor & outdoor pools; participating in the archery; pony riding for our daughter; tennis; the games room; snooker; the outdoor play areas; walking in the beautiful gardens & spotting a kingfisher! It was great having use of a BBQ.

Many, many thanks”
