As a family we have been coming to Forda since 2005, sometimes twice a year if we are lucky. This year it was our puppy, Lilly's first visit and she loved it as much as the rest of the family. The setting is heavenly and lodges are spotlessly clean and well stocked with the essentials one needs. I liken it...

Another wonderful stay at Forda. Very friendly and welcoming staff and amazing spa treatments. The swimming pool and other facilities were spotless and easy to access. We will definitely be booking to go again.

We chose Forda because it ticked all the boxes for our family. Close to the Bude for beaches, shopping and dining. Great mixed coarse fishing and a Spa. We stayed in the barn which is spacious and comfortable. The owners were very hospitable and always on site offering help and advice. The ladies and children enjoyed the pool and spa...

Another fabulous stay at Forda and each year just gets better. Such a relaxing place to stay you can do as much or as little as you want, this year for us was a much more relaxed pace. Lots of swimming a bit of fishing and let's not forget the wonderful spa treatments. As always Jim, Gillian, Jayne and team...

Everything was perfect, accommodation, Spa/pool facilities and excellent fishing, and surrounding places of interest to visit. Jim and Gillian have worked and continue to work tirelessly to create this perfect environment for all to...

This is the third time we have stayed here, been once in summer school holidays a few years ago, between Christmas and New Year a few years ago and then now in early September. If you want peace and quiet, this is a good place to be. Very little passing traffic, virtually silent at night. I love the indoor swimming...

Enjoyed a lovely week at Forda. Great location to explore the North Cornish coast. We were treated with a warm welcome and given a run through of all that was on offer. The facilities were superb. Beautiful lakes to fish and enjoy birdwatching. Superb swimming pool and games room. All so clean and pristine. Great surfing at Dog friendly beaches...

Returned to Forda after 20+ years and found it had only improved on perfection! The standard of accommodation is excellent, our A frame lodge was spotlessly clean and comfortable. On-site facilities (inc tennis court, indoor swimming pool, games room, family games) are readily available and more than adequate for the number of guests. The grounds are well maintained and accessible...

We have stayed at these self contained lodges on a number of occasions. Quite frankly it doesn't get any better than this if you want to chill out and relax. The lodges are well set out and well equipped. Great view over the bottom lake. Swimming pool, sauna, Jacuzzi, beauty salon. Also sports room and tennis court. Plenty of fish...

This place is great if you are a fishing person or you just sit and watch. Everything is very clean and kept to a high standard. Would we visit again. YES we would for sure. Many thanks Steve and Mary Marriott and oh yes Chester our little Saint Bernard puppy.
