Nice place to stay at, but the front door seriously needs looked at. There are gaps all the way down the whole length of the door which left it very, very draughty. It wouldn't even stay shut unless it was locked. The windows in the lounge were not much better - we had to buy tape to keep it draught free as we were spending quite a bit on electric to keep warm - unfortunately we were there during storm Brian which didn't help.
The smoke detector should have been replaced 3 years ago.
Would think of staying in another dwelling if we come back.
Kilhampton is the village where Penstowe Park is it close enough to walk to.There are shops there & it has a Coop now. The pubs are local types & do good food.Nearby is the seaside town of Bude & its beaches were there are plenty of shops & restaurants. We were allowed to take our dog with us. Indoor pool is just right & as it was out of season we had it to ourselves, good idea.
My partner and I, with our 2 year old son, really enjoyed our week away at 7 The Drive, Penstowe Park.
It was quiet and relaxing being there off season.
The chalet was comfortable with some nice little touches and everything was thought of e.g plastic cups and plates for little one.
Was a bit concerned about the shower door seemed a bit unstable on its runner and the airer was falling apart, there was also a broken slat under one of the beds. Just wanted owners to be aware.
Penstowe Manor is really handy and the pool was great. Some lovely treatments are available too. Enjoyed the Stables bar and the pizzas on site. Kilkhampton is lovely, great fish and chips and The London Inn does a fantastic carvery on Sunday. We loved Bude and its beaches.
Would definitely go back.
We had a lovely stay at 7 the drive in may half term. (This us not the first time we have stayed here, we returned knowing it would be the perfect stay for our last holiday before the arrival of our baby!) We were blessed with beautiful weather from start to finish.
The chalet was immaculate, once again and still feels just as new and clean as the previous time we stayed - showing the owners take pride in keeping this chalet up to a good standard. The chalet was thoroughly cleaned and spotless when we arrived. It was equipped with everything that we would need for the week and felt like home from home. Very tastefully decorated to!
I was a but worried, being 37 weeks pregnant but this chalet was perfect for our needs. The shower cubical is nice and spacious and the beds were comfortable.
We spent many days relaxing on the beach (and my husband enjoyed the surf) down at Summerleaze. We also visited Boscastle twice during our stay, which was breath taking. We discovered the new outdoor pool that Penstowe has made (which can be used free of charge) it was brilliant for the hot days!
Thank you once again for a beautiful holiday, filled with wonderful memories. I would highly recommend staying here and cant wait for our next visit with the baby!!
My partner and I stayed at 7 The drive in Penstowe Park and were very impressed with the chalet. It was very reasonably priced and it had all the home comforts we needed and was well maintained. The location was perfect. Penstowe Park was very peaceful but with the lodge and Stables Inn on site you could swim, eat, drink and play games. From a wider location, it was great for access to Bude, Clovelly, Padstow, Tintagel, Widemouth.....all of which were fantastic days out. We were also extremely lucky with the weather - which definitely made our holiday. Thank you for having us Jane!

This was a lovely base to explore North Cornwall. The site is quiet and clean and the bungalow has everything you need to enjoy your stay aswell as little thoughtful extras such as games, books and information on local activities.
The owner is quick to reply to any questions and the property was lovely! Thankyou for a lovely stay x
A lovely, clean chalet with well-equipped kitchen. An extremely peaceful area. It did, however, state that a DVD was included and there was not - the purpose of my trip was for research, having taken along DVDs but luckily had laptop. Although I'm sure most people would be there for a holiday it may not be important. Other than that, was wonderful service from the owners and thoroughly enjoyed it.
