After reading the mixed reviews on Trip Advisor we decided we would visit Penstowe with an open mind. We booked our chalet, no; 7 The Drive, through the 'Owners Direct' website. We were extr… More

"Perfect holiday, lovely chalet, everything we could have wanted!"
When we arrived, the chalet was in a cute location and had everything we wanted. It was very homely and beautifully decorated with lovely accessories making it the perfect place for a holiday. The location was great, a small drive away from beaches and shops and pleasant walks. We visited the Eden project which is just over an hours drive, Bude (which has some lovely shops), summerlease beach and sandymouth beach, Tintagel (stunning place for walks), and Boscastle which is a cute place to drive through. The chalet was spotless and very tidy and had everything we expected. There were many maps and things to read in the chalet that helped us decide where to visit which came in useful when we got stuck in planning our day. The manor is just round the corner which has a sports bit which we didn't use and other bits there, and also has a bar and you can buy the electric cards from there too. Everyone there was really friendly helping us out finding somewhere to eat as we didn't realise the shops would be shut at 8-9pm. There is a lovely chinese just up the road (small drive away) which is great if you get there late and nowhere else is open nearby. In Bude there is a handy morrisons which is open till 9pm which came in handy for buying food. The weather was perfect, making this holiday one to remember, just wish I could have stayed longer in this lovely chalet and to have seen more of Cornwall and Devon. Would definitely recommend and hoping to go back again in the future ! Thank you !

"Everything we needed - home from home"
The chalet was well appointed and clean, with many homely touches.
We had already read that there were no bedside lamps, so had gone prepared.
We did need help with inserting the electricity card - we were being too genteel in our approach!
Plenty of places to visit nearby and good walks.

"Clean, fresh, comfortable accommodation, with every kitchen utensil you might need."
We had a great time in the chalet in Oct, although some of the mornings were a bit cool, when the heaters with timers came in very handy. The accommodation was clean and fresh and very relaxing. The shower was great plenty of room. The only small thing we missed was bedside lamps as we all like reading in bed.

"A pleasant, clean and convenient base for a holiday"
We did several walks along the coastal paths including one to Clovelly and one from the nearby Sandymouth along to Bude. Also visited Rosemoor Gardens over the border in Devon, a RHS garden which I would rate as possibly the best garden I have seen.
The chalet is bright and well decorated with a bit of character. It is also well equipped with good cooker as well as microwave. The shower is a lot larger than you usually get on holiday being about 4ft wide. Our week was pretty dull and cool so we needed some heating in the lounge and we found the heater was excellent. All the equipment looked virtually new.
We walked the half mile into Kilkhampton village both to the convenience stores for provisions and to have a meals in the two pubs. Both meals were good. Our food at the London Inn was better cooked than the New Inn, but the latter had the better atmosphere. We also had fish and chips from the shop in the village. The church is quite interesting too.
The chalet is in a quiet location less than 100 metres from the Stables Bar & Grill where we had a reasonable meal, but the TVs were a bit of a distraction. About 200 metres away is Penstowe Manor where there is food, activities and entertainment.
Infirm people ought to be aware that there is quite a slope from the car park to the chalet.

"A brilliant place to stay"
Our stay at 7 The Drive was first class and was more than we expected. Very clean and tidy and everything you need for your stay. The staff at the Manor House were very helpful and had all the information we needed on most things. The area being quiet in parkland but with all the amenities near by. Plenty of shops in the village for your supply's so no need to take lots with you, including a pub and a chippy. Supermarkets in Bude only four miles away and things to do and see there as well. You can get to most parts of Cornwall in the day so there is plenty to do and see for everyone. Nothing to complain about in any way we had a brilliant stay. I would recommend the place and area to everyone.
