Snaptrip says

La Bella Vista is a well-received cottage in Bude, Cornwall, praised for its cleanliness, peaceful surroundings, and thoughtful touches like cream tea and dog treats. Guests enjoyed the spacious accommodation and on-site leisure facilities, despite some issues with water pressure and maintenance.

Guests that stayed at this property said

Guests consistently noted the property was spotlessly clean, indicating high standards of cleanliness.

While guests mentioned the proximity to beaches and on-site leisure centre, there were not enough specific comments about the location to accurately score this category.

The property provided ample space and comfort, though there were minor comments about a creaky bed and water pressure affecting comfort.

Facilities were generally appreciated, but some guests faced issues with water pressure and patio doors, and on-site facilities being closed for refurbishment.

The provision of cream tea, blankets, and dog treats were mentioned as thoughtful gestures, although it should be noted that such gifts are not guaranteed.

About this property

This well-presented, detached chalet lies on the Penstowe Manor Holiday Park, close to the historic village of Kilkhampton and two and half miles from the sandy beach at Sandymouth Bay. Offering three bedrooms, La Bella Vista, meaning beautiful views, is a contemporary home-away-from-home for families looking to explore this tranquil part of Cornwall. Enter into the open-plan living space, with a sitting area offering plenty of seating where you can curl up and relax in the evening, in front of the Smart TV, providing the entertainment. The kitchen offers the basic amenities for a short break, including an electric oven and hob, microwave, fridge/freezer, dishwasher, wine cooler and Tassimo coffee machine, so you are well-equipped for a week away. Gather round the dining table and discuss tomorrow’s plans or whip out a board game and enjoy some quality family time. Each bedroom has been neatly presented, offering a king-size with en-suite shower, a double and a twin, served by a bathroom with bath and shower over, so you can enjoy lazy soaks after a long day. Take a drink outside and rest at the decking furniture, taking in the tranquil setting and rural vistas, or wander the grounds of the park as you become familiar with your surroundings. If you fancy a night away from the kitchen, then visit the on-site bar and cafe. Residing in the rural village of Kilkhampton, there are plenty of amenities on hand, including two pubs, a supermarket, fish and chip shop, a butchers and a Chinese takeaway, offering plenty of choice.

Once those are completed, the Cornish coastline is teeming with vibrant towns of villages, including Tintagel, Boscastle and Bideford, while the rugged landscape of Bodmin Moor provides magnificent walking routes. La Bella Vista provides a lovely opportunity to explore Cornwall with loved ones. Note: This property can be booked with Refs. 1096207 and 1096210, together sleeping up to 14 guests.

Kilkhampton is an historic Cornish village, 4 miles from the popular Victorian seaside resort of Bude, one of Cornwall’s premier holiday locations. With its old church, village shops and atmospheric village pubs, Kilkhampton is a lovely place to relax after a hard day exploring the stunning beaches and spectacular coastal scenery for which the area is famous. Bude’s beaches attract surfers from all over the country and when conditions are right you’d be hard pushed to find better surf. When the tide is out, miles of golden sand and hundreds of rock pools keep visitors occupied for hours. The South West Coast Path, and many other rights-of-way winding over the clifftops and through lush green fields looking out over the sea, make this area a haven for walkers and lovers of the open countryside. For those who prefer staying closer to home, a good shopping centre and a selection of pubs, two clubs and restaurants are on offer. Bude canal, a registered nature reserve, passes through the town, and rowing a boat along its calm waters or walking the towpath among the beautiful (and friendly) water fowl that live among the reeds is a great way to spend an hour or two. Within the area there are also 2 golf courses, an indoor swimming pool, bowling alley at the leisure centre. A perfect location for all that North Cornwall has to offer.

    The bed in main bedroom did have a creek quite a bit although I'm sure it can be sorted easily enough and a little disappointed that the on site facilities were not open due to refurbishment. It was an ideal base to for both Cornwall and Devon.

  • Jenna

    It has everything you need for a relaxing stay. The standard is great. Very nice touch with the scones, also the blankets and dog treats are very thoughtful. The owners have thought of more than just the basics.

    It’s a lovely property with beautiful views in very peaceful surroundings. Everything was very well thought out and each member of the family had plenty of space and comfort throughout the stay. The property was spotlessly clean, well organised and the cream tea left in the fridge as a treat went down well! The only slight issue was the water supply, with 5 guests to get showered but only one shower can be used at a time, it makes getting out slower. This is the only negative about the property and despite this I’m sure we will be be back. It’s within a short easy drive of a choice of beaches so the kids were very happy. The on-site leisure centre pool and entertainment was great when the weather wasn’t. We would definitely recommend a stay here.
