“Beautiful, peaceful retreat for the whole family”
Reviewed 17 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

This was our second time at staying in Blagdon Farm, having already had one visit last year, we decided to return again.

The accommodation and facilities, along with the owners-Karen and Ian, were second to none. Set in a beautiful, tranquil part of the country, overlooking the grounds and a beautiful fishing lake.

Our kids loved the swimming pool (which is lovely and warm and we usually had to ourselves!) and the games room, and we loved the bar and sampling the local beers! The kids enjoyed exploring the grounds, looking for frogs and feeding the chickens, whilst we had that extra 5 minutes peace! Just added extras that made our stay even more enjoyable.

Plenty of things to see and do in the surrounding vicinity, along with beautiful coastline. Recommend Bude for all those budding surfers/ bodyboarders- our kids (8yrs and 5yrs) loved it, and Trethorne Leisure Park.

We will definitely be returning again, and have recommended this place to friends and family. A little gem!!

Thank you to the owners Karen and Ian for working so tirelessly and making your guests feel so welcome.

“lovely countryside retreat for young and old”
Reviewed 1 August 2015 for a stay in July 2015

Beautiful peaceful location with stunning lake views and just a 30 minute drive from the beach. Comfortable well equipped apartments with on site pool, bar and games room. If you ate looking for a quiet getaway within easy reach of all the usual tourist attractions this lovely location suits couples and young families alike. The owners were very friendly and went above and beyond their duty to ensure we had a comfortable,enjoyable stay. We miss the beautiful view already and hope to pay a return visit one day.

“A return trip”
Reviewed 12 May 2015 for a stay in April 2015

Having just returned to Blagdon farm for another break I cannot praise the owner's karen and Ian enough for their hospitality and service nothing was to much trouble and the lodges are to a standard that other's could learn from, the fishing was very good and the views over the lake exceptional we will be returning later in the year without hesitation to further the experience and see more of the area.

Such a beautiful place to stay. The surroundings are stunning with so many local places to explore.

Definitely going to miss a lakeside view in the morning!

Can't wait to visit again!

Perfectly situated on the Devon/Cornwall border.

Can't recommend it enough!!

Accessibility is great, the hosts have really thought if everything.
