21 The Coombe is noted as the Lodge with one of the best locations on Penstowe Park with uninterrupted views down the Coombe to the sea beyond. Now under new ownership it has been totally refurnished in a contemporary style offering modern day living with good quality quilts, pillows, bed linen, Denby crockery and designer accessories.
The Lodge is enclosed and offers privacy to sit back on the extensive patio and enjoy the views and breathtaking sunsets. Outside there is a brick built barbecue and a storage unit housing all the essentials for beach, outdoor games and living. If the weather isn't kind the conservatory is an ideal place to sit and relax and watch the varied birds that visit the garden. To the rear of the property there is communal grassland which is a safe area for children to play.
The open plan living area has plenty of space for all guests to chill. The relaxing sofa doubles up as a double bed. The master bedroom has a comfy double bed with plenty of wardrobe and storage space. The second bedroom has a double bed with a single on top and a further single bed; so 4 people can sleep comfortably. Here is also a second TV with a wide selection of DVDs, children's toys and games.
The kitchen has everything you will need including a dish washer and a Tassimo coffee machine. The bathroom has a full sized bath with a good electric shower above. Should you require laundry services, there is a launderette on site.

The Park has a free heated outdoor pool and an large heated indoor pool, gym, squash courts and table tennis all for a small charge. The Manor house has a bar, restaurant, entertainment for the children andals evening entertainment. In the grounds there is also a Pizza Shack. The village of Kilkhampton is walk-able from the Lodge and here you will find an array of local shops, Co-op, Post Office, Fish and Chips and two pubs. The New Inn in particular offers excellent pub food and in busy times is advisable to book. Just outside the village travelling north is a good Chinese take away restaurant. Travelling south towards Bude, just outside the Park is an excellent farm shop offering local produce and fresh Cornish Pasties.
Bude is a lovely seaside town with two great beaches, fabulous surfing and a famous large semi natural sea water pool which is free and safe. There is lots to do in Bude so you can easily spend the day exploring. On Fridays there is a small market on the quayside selling lots of local produce and crafts. Well worth a visit. The cycle hire shop can be found next to the canal where a wide selection of cycles can be hired with cycle route maps.
The closest beach to the Lodge is the National Trust beach Sandymouth which offers free parking for National Trust members and there is also a good National Trust cafe and small shop. It's about two miles from the lodge. Just turn immediately right outside the main gate and follow the lane down towards the sea. Use the tide timetable to find the best time to use the full stretch of sand at low tide and walk all along the beach to Bude returning via the coastal path calling in at Northcott Mouth Beach to visit Margaret in her caravan tea room and enjoy one of her famous Cornish Cream Teas.
Further afield there are lots of wonderful places to visit including Padstow, Boscastle, Tamar Lakes and the fabulous RHS Rosemoor Gardens.
