“Lovely place and friendly people, even if the weather was a mixed bag!! Comfortable cottage, good walks. Definitely would recommend Nicky’s meals. Great meal at the Preston Gate Inn, Poughill.
Enjoyable time riding (friendly girls). Beautiful gardens to enjoy. Ran out time to use all the facilities available. Would be looking to come back in the future and recommending to friends and family.

Wish we could have stayed longer!! We will be back!!”

Chris, Sarah and Blue the black lab stayed in Swallow, April 2019

“It’s been 20 years since we have stayed at Broomhill. We were so excited to find it has retained all its charm. Fulmar was an excellent base. We enjoyed all the local beaches and used the sea water pool! Brrr!! Our daughter was able to visit the stables and was well looked after by Ellie & Lisa on the two hacks she enjoyed. I’m sure it will not be another 20 years before we return!”

The Williams family stayed in Fulmar, March 2019

“We have a lovely few days in Cornwall and thoroughly enjoyed our first time in Dunlin. We found the cottage and all of the facilities to be extremely clean. The children enjoyed the tennis, indoor pool and games room. We will be considering a return later in the year.
A beautiful place and safe haven for children

The Langley Family stayed in Dunlin, February 2019

“A lovely cottage – cosying up on the sofas and with all we could need – from hairdryer to porchlight, to cafetiere and wifi. So much enjoyed the glorious grounds; the circular lawn, woodland, pools, the lovely manor house in its glorious setting. And all the lanes around for exploring to St Olaf’s Poughill, Stamford Hill and Stratton. Everything is immaculately kept – hedges, lawns, greenhouses and every aspect of the cottage. We are considering a spring return to swim, improve fitness in the gym, trek the coastal walks, retreat into the characterful pubs, catch up on reading and glory in the peace – physical and psychological therapy combined! A beautiful place.”

Mr & Mrs Prior stayed in Dunlin, December 2018

“We had a great time here. We have come 3 times now and it has been great. PS: Thank you to Alan and Linda.

Places to go: The Milky Way, Eden Project, Summerleaze Beach, a shop in Bude called Costumes, Rosie’s Kitchen, Widemouth Bay café

This is an amazing place to stay and that is why we have come back three times!  “

The Chohl family stayed in Heron, November 2018

“This was our first visit to Broomhill but it will definitely not be our last! We have had walks along the beach and surfing n the waves. We have also been walking on the cliffs. We found a really good place to fly our kite – on the cliffs in a cow field. The hot tub in the garden was great on chilly days and it had disco lights. I also really enjoyed the indoor pool as it was so warm and the horse riding. WE HAD A GREAT TIME! We will definitely come back again”

The Days stayed in Sandpiper, October 2018

“We have had an amazing stay here at Broomhill and we are very sad to be going home. The cottage was immaculate and very well equipped for everything including cake making which the children requested we did. We thoroughly enjoyed swimming every day and the horse riding was excellent. Would definitely recommend The Tree Inn for a lovely meal out with great service and for children, The Milky Way was a fantastic day out. We will definitely be returning again to Broomhill. Thank you!”

The Bell family stayed in Chough, October 2018

“We all had a lovely stay in the fantastic Sandpiper. Every possible thing we needed for us 4 adults and 2 children provided. Our sons enjoyed the bar & hot-tub and we all made use of the pool, which was great for us and the children. Went to Bude beach & shops and to The Tree for Sunday roast. Used the lovely playroom and outdoor play grounds for the toddler, 3 and baby, 9 months. All spotless as always. Thanks again, we will be back!”

The Johnsons stayed in Sandpiper, October 2018

Hartland Quay is also interesting to visit”

Broomhill Manor Dog Friendly Holidays
The Boyts stayed in dog-friendly Sandpiper, September 2018

“Our first stay at Broomhill Manor. Everything is of a good quality with a wide range of sporting activities available. Our family group ranged in age from 19 months to knocking on 70 and we all had a good time – swimming outdoors and indoors, tennis, horse-riding, snooker, kiddies’ games etc. ie something for everyone. Although there are 18 holiday lets it is not crowded or noisy – in fact the peace and quiet of the location was much enjoyed…… in Summary, an excellent holiday location and facilities.”

The Compton family stayed at Broomhill, August 2018

“A great return to Bude after a long time! Many changes but the town is still as lovely as ever and Broomhill is a great find. The kids loved the horse riding- we went nearly every day – plus the tennis and swimming. We managed to get into town and loved the beaches, plus caught a few waves. Great to be out and about so much and to entertain the kids without going very far. Thank you for having us and hopefully we’ll see you again soon. Seagull is lovely and has all we needed. Very much appreciated your help connecting us to St.Petroc’s again – a lot of happy memories. Many thanks for everything.”

The Barrett family stayed in Seagull, August 2018

“We had a lovely time here and recommend Bude sea pool. The facilities were great and we loved the riding. We also came here last year so we knew how good it was. ”
Charlotte (Age 9)

The Byrne family stayed in Sandpiper, August 2018

“We really liked it in Grebe. We went to the beaches and they were called Summerleaze, Northcott, Sandymouth. I found interesting things. We went to the Eden project. As well as plants there were lots of spacey type things. We went to Tintagel and climbed up a very long height and saw about King Arthur. I loved the cottage. You can get a pony ride. The Manor and the swimming pool is fun. In the games room you can play table tennis, table football and pool.”

The Bickley family stayed in Grebe, August 2018

“It was a great holiday and it was a mix of weathers. The bunk beds were really comfy. We loved the inside and outside swimming pools. We also enjoyed the tennis court, horse riding and archery. We went to a lot of beaches Sandymouth, Summerleaze, Crooklets and Widemouth. The games room was good as well. re happy to let the kids explore the grounds by themselves – they didn’t go far! The Restaurants we went to were good, The Beach, The Deck, The Weir, Tree Inn and the Olive Tree.  PS the cottage was really nice!”

The Blake family stayed in Puffin, August 2018

“We booked this last minute and both my daughter & I had a great time. The whole of the estate is fab and has ALL & more. Bude has lovely beaches and very friendly people. We didn’t want to leave and have started looking at when to book back again. This cottage is cosy and very peaceful and the grounds are beautiful. We will be back that is for sure. Thank you, Alan & Linda.”

Mother and 6 yo Daughter stayed in Swallow, July 2018

“Really lovely to return to Broomhill Manor. We don’t often return to holiday destinations but we all loved our 2017 holiday and it was great to come back – a real home-from-home. Both boys loved the pools and the beaches, especially Summerleaze, where they got to try out their shortie wetsuits and body boards. I’m sure we will be back again soon – Broomhill Manor is a very special place.”

The Hackett family stayed in Fulmar, July 2018

“What an amazing week in Broomhill Manor. The cottage is well-equipped and the beds were comfy. Sitting outside for breakfast, lunch & dinner was great. Highlights included the outdoor pool, indoor pool & tennis court. The kids also loved the games room & sand pit. We were happy to let the kids explore the grounds by themselves – they didn’t go far! Would recommend Margaret’s Rustic Tea Garden at Northcott Beach for a cream tea. The archery and pony rides are great activities onsite and we spent time in Bude surfing & shopping. Thank you for a lovely holiday!”

The Boyd family stayed in Chough, July 2018

“We all liked the games room the indoor pool and the outdoor one. We liked the tennis court too.

Thank you for our holiday.  PS We liked horseback riding and the Eden Project and the beaches.”

The Henderson family stayed in Puffin, July 2018

“Thank you for the most fantastic family holiday. We have been so lucky with the weather and what a great find Broomhill has been. Bude is lovely, a trip to Eden Project and Archery even, ventured to Lands End have all helped our Cornwall experience. Broomhill’s facilities and activities have been second to none and a place we would very much recommend and hope to return to ourselves. Thanks again for one of our most memorable holidays”

The Overend family stayed in Sandpiper, July 2018

“A whole week of fantastic sunshine & heat – what more can you ask for??!! Swam everyday in the wonderful warm outdoor pool & we weren’t limited by the weather to what we did each day. Many trips to the beaches and coffees enjoyed on the front which is an easy pleasant walk down the lane. Heron Cottage is perfect for 6 adults – very comfortable and clean with everything you could need. Enjoyed all the on-site facilities – we will be back next year!

The Clohosy-Dibble family stayed in Heron, June 2018

“Another lovely week at Broomhill Manor – lots to fun in the swimming pools and exploring the grounds. Ralph has just learnt to walk so it is great to let him be able to roam free in safety and find his feet!  We have already booked for next year and looking forward to it!”

The Taylor family stayed in Woodpecker, June 2018

“A truly wonderful stay, our first visit to Broomhill and it won’t be our last. Our family with their four boys (ages 4-9 yrs) stayed in Manor Apartment which we loved (grandparents in Kingfisher). The boys couldn’t get enough of the pools, tennis and football on the front lawn, picnics in the lovely pond garden – all such amazing facilities here at Broomhill. Top marks, Alan and Linda for all your attention to detail!”

The Hamer family stayed in Apartment and Kingfisher, May-June 2018

“Had a fantastic time – all amazing & all facilities excellent – thank you – good to be back again! Lovely touches everywhere & actually reasonable weather! Thank you”

The See family stayed in Chough, May-June 2018

“The perfect base for a wonderful holiday in Cornwall with kids. Our girls are aged 5 and 3 years, so we wanted somewhere with alternative activities should the weather be bad (pool etc). The weather this week has been pretty good but every day we’ve been back in time for a couple of hours in the pool / playroom (just to make sure they’re really tired!). We’ve done so much this holiday – pony riding, crabbing, bike riding, body boarding, pot making and hope they remember how much fun we had… PS: Us adults did the Archery on Tuesday – very good!”

The Fulling family stayed in Round House, May half term 2018

“What a glorious find this place was. Spur of the moment last minute break to Bude – no regrets! Our girls age 5 and 3 loved the pool, the gardens and the hot tub. We loved the BBQ, comfy cottage, perfect location. Sad to leave ☹. Hope to return again. Thank you!”

The Wilson family stayed in Kingfisher, May 2018

“Wonderful time. Enjoyed clean & comfortable cottage with swimming pool right on doorstep. Friendly & helpful Alan – Thanks! Rented bikes just nearby & rode to beach – great activity! Bowling nearby for the showery weather. Thanks – would definitely do it again!”

The Weisfish family stayed in Dunlin, April 2018

“This is our first visit to Broomhill and it didn’t disappoint! Attempting to holiday and please kids age 16, 14, 11 and 8 isn’t easy, but Broomhill ticked all the boxes and everyone had a super week. Lots of memories made and for a family that “doesn’t do sport”, we chalked up an impressive list of activities. The cottage was clean, warm and most importantly had loads of radiators for drying towels etc. We found walking down the back lane into Bude quite easy. We enjoyed the archery and horse riding and went in the swimming pool everyday. The hot tub is a great bonus, especially sitting in it under the stars at the end of the day!”

The McKeever family stayed in Cormorant, April 2018

“We have loved our stay in Grebe Cottage. We went to Crooklets, Widemouth and Summerleaze beaches… the boys (4 and 17 months) like Crooklets best because of all the distributaries to splash in. We ate in Waves – the fish goujons and chips were good and the staff were super friendly! The boys loved the playroom which was clean and bright, the sandpit and the pool and a ride on Rosie. I (mum) loved the beauty treatments and had 5!

The Carrera family stayed in Grebe, April 2018

“If we stayed here again we would stay here for 2 weeks instead of 1! It’s been really fun. The games room was my favourite. Pool was a really fun game to play with my dad! The horse riding was really exciting (I have never been on a horse before) I felt really safe when we were at a slow trot. This was the Best Easter Ever”

By Poppy, Aged 8

The Campbell family stayed in Kingfisher, April 2018

“Another lovely week here at Broomhill. We also love the Olive Tree. Great gourmet burgers and lovely fish & chips from “The Plaice”.
Great walks: Port Quinn to Polzeath; left loop over the cliffs at Bude; left loop over cliffs from Boscastle (our favourite – we do every year!) Also scones from Lansdown Bakery with a tub of Cornish clotted cream. Our boys enjoyed tennis (we were lucky with the weather), the games room and of course the pool. A welcome break from the hustle & bustle of normal life – love, love, love the coast path around North Cornwall. Thanks to Alan and Linda as always.”

The Patel family stayed in Fulmar, February 2018

“First time here at Broomhill Manor, but I hope not the last time. Me and my family, we had a very good time. We enjoyed the area and the hospitality of Alan and Linda. The stay was great and would recommend to my friends to visit Broomhill Manor.
The kids enjoyed the pool, games room and outdoor play areas. Thank you for everything. Happy New Year!

Pool Table
The Olaf family stayed in Dunlin, New Year 2017-18

“We’ve had a great time here in spite of the weather, making good use of your tip-top on-site facilities. Only sorry it was too stormy to use the tidal pool in Bude. Carla says she likes the doggy cushion very much and all the pubs she’s been welcomed in, and running round on the sea-front on top of the cliffs. We’ll be back!”

Mr and Mrs Wild stayed in Seagull with their dog Carla, September 2017

“Our stay at Broomhill Manor was great, we thoroughly enjoyed the indoor and outdoor pools! The Games room was excellent and we all enjoyed a game of pool! Overall the facilities were brilliant, there was always something to do. The weather during our stay was mostly bright and we either went to Crooklets or Summerleaze – both were excellent! We all enjoyed the Sea Pool very much!

The hot tub was extremely relaxing, especially after a long day of being on the beach! Both Alan and Linda were very kind and helpful. All in all we had an amazing time and will definitely be returning. Thank You!

The Fox family stayed in Kingfisher, August-Sept 2017

“We had a wonderful stay at the Grebe cottage. It was our second stay at Broomhill Manor. We went to Hidden Valley, Bude, Padstow and The Tree inn which had very tasty food. The indoor pool was nice and warm and the jacuzzi was very bubbly.

Broomhill Manor Indoor Pool
The Morgan family stayed in Grebe, August 2017

“The facilities were really good and fun and I recommend doing the surfing schools as they were really fun. There are some really good coastal walks which are super interesting and the pools here are great as well. Everyone is super nice and it’s great but this pen is running out so it was really good….!
