“This is our second stay at Broomhill and first in Dunlin. We have loved the “upside down” cottage – and its positioning to the pool has been a definite hit! We’ve been lucky with the weather and only one rainy day really. Lots of beach time at Summerleaze and our favourite Crooklets beach. Exploring and body boarding have been great. 

Favourite places: Tintagel, Boscastle and Hidden Valley. Favourite food places: Rosie’s at Crooklets and Preston Gate (15 mins walk)

Kids have loved both pools as well as tennis, and fantastic archery which we all did. We love the bar in the evening too!! Alan and Linda have been fantastic hosts and we look forward to coming back next year!

The Jaggard family stayed in Dunlin, August 2019

“Our 3rd visit to Broomhill and House Cottage, it has everything we need for a lovely holiday. Our girls did lots of horse riding & made lots of friends with other girl guests. We made good use of both pools, but also managed to venture out to the beach a couple of days at Widemouth bay – plenty of parking (need to pay), toilets and lovely café. We spent a long day at Hidden Valley – better for older kids, but enjoyed it very much”

The Buckinghams stayed in House Cottage, August 2019

“We’ve had a fun week here at Broomhill. Lots for kids to do & the weather was perfect – not too hot! We enjoyed Summerleaze, Crooklets & Sandymouth beaches. Ate at The Tree Inn, Stratton – yummy Sunday lunch, also the Olive Tree on the canal in Bude – excellent. Life’s a beach for lunch – pretty good. We’ve enjoyed two pony rides each for the kids here too.

Very welcoming & cosy place to stay. Thank you very much!”

The Aldworth-Grays stayed in Nightingale, July 2019

“We had a lovely break and enjoyed all the facilities! The weather was beautiful and we made good use of the lovely outdoor pool.

Very special evening at The Bank in Bude. Fabulous tapas in an unusual place – a bit unexpected. Great service & ambience!! Elements – wonderful views of the coastline! Great Italian food!

A big thank you to Alan & Linda for helping us with our bookings and enabling us to have a very special time together as an extended family! You have a beautiful place and the baskets & tubs are fabulous!”

Three generations stayed in Heron, July 2019

“We had a wonderful stay. Broomhill Manor would have been an amazing place to stay even if the weather had been bad (which you have to expect). Fortunately it was glorious and we enjoyed the outdoor pool, trampoline, playgrounds, BBQ, hot-tub, spa, indoor pool….over and over again! My little boy had a fantastic time and has been smiling for the whole of his first holiday 🙂 Alan was so helpful and all the staff so friendly. This is such a find – a real gem of a place and we can’t wait to come back!

The Atack family stayed in Cormorant, July 2019

“We had the best weather it was nice and sunny. We went to the beach and went into the beautiful town of Bude. I will comment on this amazing holiday. I loved the space I had to play football and all the play stuff. We also enjoyed the pool. I loved this holiday!”

Sands family stayed in Grebe, July 2019

“We have had the most wonderful time at Broomhill Manor. The cottage and its surroundings have been beautifully maintained and we’ve really enjoyed using the leisure facilities (pools, hot tubs, games room, children’s play room and horse riding to name but a few). Plus, we’ve been perfectly situated to enjoy the stunning scenery – not only in the grounds, but by visiting nearby Bude and going on coastal walks.

This was our first holiday as a family of three – since welcoming Oliver to the world seven months ago – and the baby-friendly services of Broomhill such as providing a travel cot, black-out blinds, baby monitors, a baby bath seat, a high chair and, of course, having meals delivered to our cottage have all made this a stress-free, relaxing and really enjoyable trip. Thank you!”

The Ewens family stayed in Nightingale, June 2019

“Had a lovely time & we really enjoyed exploring North Cornwall & further afield.

Would recommend for a holiday whatever the weather!

Robin and Julie stayed in Grebe, June 2019

“Our second visit to Broomhill – it’s been another super week, even though the weather did not match up to last year!

Our family have been staying in the Manor Apartment so most of out time has been spent there.

The rain has not stopped us from body boarding or swimming in the outdoor pool. Four boys aged 5-10 years have had a wonderful time – and so have we! We will be back”

The Hamer family stayed at Broomhill, June 2019

“We’ve had a brilliant stay here this week. The weather’s been pretty unpredictable so we’ve been particularly glad of the indoor pool + games rooms! The outdoor pool was surprisingly warm too even on cooler days. Enjoyed visits to beaches – Sandymouth + Summerleaze + villages – Boscastle + Port Isaac +the Otter Sanctuary. We had a lovely meal at Life’s a Beach in Bude this evening. We hope we can come back again some day soon.”

The Morrison family stayed in Fulmar, June 2019

“We had a great week! We especially loved horse-riding here – would recommend a lesson for the little ones if they’re keen. The weather was a bit up and down, but we still got to see some beautiful beaches and caught crabs and shrimps in Crooklets beach.

We loved swimming in the outdoor and indoor pool.

Really impressed. And hope to be back soon.

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.”

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

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

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.

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.

“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

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 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!”
