“Dream holiday”

person found this review helpful

A stunning location, Philoctetes is perched overlooking Widemouth Bay. A peaceful site with a lovely pool. The bungalow is well equipped, clean and comfortable. The town of Bude is a short drive away with many individual shops and cafes. We visited the Eden Project while staying here and Bideford.
We would definitely come again and stay at Philoctetes!

“Excellent holiday retreat”
Reviewed 11 June 2017 for a stay in May 2017

The bungalow is just fantastic with stunning views and sunsets. The beach is a stroll along the coast path where you have wonderful surfing and a great place to play. The swimming pool area and the club house were both family friendly. Fabulous location and thoroughly enjoyed every minute. Can't wait to return.

“Great stay at Widemouth Bay”
Reviewed 15 May 2017 for a stay in May 2017

We spend a wonderful time visiting Cornwall and in the Bungalow at Widemouth Bay Holiday park. The Bungalow is fully equipped and we didn't miss anything besides Wi-Fi in the bungalow, but there is Wi-Fi on the site. Julie was very nice and accommodating and I would like to stay there again.

“Ideal, comfortable place to stay”
Reviewed 3 January 2017 for a stay in December 2016

We stayed at Philoctetes over Christmas and it was ideal for our needs. We have family in Bude who we were out visiting a lot of the time and this little chalet provided the perfect base to come back to. The site was quiet but not totally deserted which was nice.
It was clean and in a good state of repair, good communication from the owner.
Only issue was that there were no blankets, there was a sign on the wardrobe which said "these blankets are for indoor use only" but alas there were no blankets!
Overall a very enjoyable stay. Would be interested to return in the summer months to see the place in full swing and enjoy some (maybe?) better weather!

Thank you for taking time to review our holiday property. We are glad that you found our bungalow a nice place to stop over Xmas. There are ample blankets and throwovers which are now stored in the drawers under the single beds rather in the top of the wardrobes, so we will amend our instructions for future customers, apologies for any confusion this may have caused. We hope you visit again in the summer to see Bude and surrounding areas at their best.

“Very nice bungalow with lovely views”
Reviewed 16 October 2016 for a stay in October 2016

A very comfortable holiday bungalow with everything needed to enjoy a break. My only reservation would be that the holiday site on which the property is situated closes on 1 Oct which it would have been useful to be aware of. Bude is not far away with shops for everyday needs, but my particular requirement was for wi-fi which I had failed to appreciate would not be available on site. This requirement was fulfilled by the very useful library in town and was a minor inconvenience. This apart, it was a very enjoyable place to stay.

Thank you for taking time to review our property. We are really glad you found the property and surrounding area to your liking. I am so sorry that you could not to access the WI-FI at the onsite club as it was closed during your stay - I thought by mistake the site club closed at the end of October and so mislead you. I normally pride myself in getting even the most finer details correct, but unfortunately I got this one wrong - I hope you accept my sincere apologies' for this.
