“What an amazing place to be!”
Reviewed 1 March 2016 for a stay in February 2016

We stayed at penleaze from the 25th-29th Feb. I travelled with my partner and his family also came. From the moment we arrived it was just 'WOW', the prosseco, real flowers and cake is such a lovely touch. This place is absolutely amazing, beautiful views, beautiful setting and the lodge is such an great place to be and relax. The hot tub is an added bonus, and its so nice to chill in the hot tub an take in the breath taking views. The lodge is very well designed and the mezzanine is a lovely chill out area, A lot of time was spent up here by everyone chilling, reading and taking a cheeky nap. I would highly recommend the salon also, I had a massage here and it was the best massage I have ever had. I will definitely be returning to the lodge. This place is incredible and I would highly recommend it. Thank you Stefan and Richard for letting us share this hidden gem in Bude,

“Superb Lodge, Superb Location, Superb Hosts. Looking forward to a return visit”
Reviewed 17 November 2015 for a stay in August 2015

The Lodge is a superb property that really does have a high end luxury feel, backed up with outstanding service from hosts Stefan and Richard. The photos of the interior only tell part of the story, the exterior is just as good, and the views are stunning. Location wise, it is only a few minutes drive to the coast in Bude. We were there at the end of August into first week of September, and the weather was very good to be honest. We loved the Lodge and Bude so much we extended the stay for an extra night and cancelled other plans we had made. It was well worth it.

We travelled as a family, 2 adults and 3 young infants (4, 2 and 1). We found the facilities amongst the best for self catering rentals that we have ever had. Which is very nice, as you have a high end holiday that you deserve - why slum it when you taking a much needed break!

We also made use of the Salon for a massage, and Sandra was superb.

Stefan was a great host and really made us feel welcome and looked after. You get all the privacy you need along with the benefit of the hosts being close by in case of any need.

We look forward to a return visit in the near future, thanks for such an amazing break.

“Probably the best self catering pad we've ever stayed in”
Reviewed 1 November 2015 for a stay in October 2015

We loved it and even better the kids loved it so much they were kissing it on the way out! High quality finish, looks exactly like the website and maybe even better. My wife too advantage of the Salon which is also excellent. The hosts are real characters, nothing too much trouble and look after you as and when you need them.

“Hidden Treasure”
Reviewed 27 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

We stayed at the Penleaze Lodge for 1 week in early September. There were 5 adults and 1 toddler in the group and the accommodation was perfect.

The hosts, Stefan and Richard, were incredibly friendly and made us feel really welcome.

The property was only completed earlier this year but it has a real wow factor and has been finished to a very high specification. We had a couple of minor issues during our stay but they were dealt with efficiently by our hosts. The underfloor heating in the bathrooms was lovely and the bedrooms are all pretty spacious. We also have to mention the mezzanine level which was great for releasing and reading, we also read our daughter bedtime story up there every night because it was such a great chill out area. The views are outstanding!

Bude is only a 5-10 minute drive away and offers all the shops you are likely to need plus there's plenty of activities for both adults and children. Our daughter is nearly 2 years old and she loved the rock pools on the beach and the parks / activities that we all comfortably within reach of the area.

I would highly recommend this property and will certainly consider returning here when we come to the Bude area again.

“Absolute Perfection!”
Reviewed 2 September 2015 for a stay in August 2015

We stayed at The Lodge in August 2015 and it was absolutely perfect. The welcome from Stefan was wonderful and after a six hour drive - being offered a glass of Prosecco started our holiday off in real style. The property stands in large grounds with open views - brilliant if you want to get away from the hustle and bustle of city life! The Lodge is very modern (exactly as in the pictures) fully equipped, spotlessly clean and the attention to detail is just outstanding!
Nothing was too much trouble for the owners, and TheSalon next door provided superb beauty treatments for the family. We all thoroughly enjoyed our holiday and will definitely stay at The Lodge again! However when word gets around how fantastic it is - that might be difficult!

“Marvellous country side and coastal views”
Reviewed 10 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

This property has a modern and fresh feel along with outstanding views and facilities. The open plan living area was great for socialising and for admiring the views. The house and contents were well thought out and the three en suite bathrooms were an added bonus. The Jacuzzi was a great hit with our three teenagers.

The 'Salon' next door has a great range of services and treatments on offer for all ages and tastes. The owners are very friendly and helpful and it was good to be in a farm location with wonderful walks nearby. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would have no hesitation about returning.
