Here’s the full Parent Friendly Stays review of Broomhill Manor.
Accommodation and prices
The Broomhill Manor complex features eighteen luxury self-catering properties – one apartment and the rest cottages – set in the north Cornish countryside near the popular seaside town of Bude. The cottages are decorated in a fresh, modern style and are well equipped and furnished; they are also arranged around a series of small courtyards which creates a pleasing village-like atmosphere without cars or other vehicles for parents to worry about. A holiday for a family of four during the peak summer season will cost from £1550 upwards, but prices fall to around £500 out of season.
Child friendly features
Broomhill Manor is overflowing with child friendly activities to keep kids of all ages entertained! There’s a ton of open space in the complex’s extensive grounds, perfect for kicking a ball around or generally letting off steam (though parents will wish to be aware of the large fish ponds). There are two swimming pools – one indoor and one outdoor – both of which are heated. The outdoor pool is only open during summer months, like most similar ones elsewhere, but the indoor pool is available every day of the year until 10pm. There’s a games room with table tennis, pool table and table football, and there’s also a separate under 6’s playroom with toys suitable for that age range. Broomhill Manor also benefits from a tennis court (with adult and children’s rackets available to borrow) and there are several outdoor play areas within the grounds including swings, climbing frames, slides, sand pit and wendy houses. As if that wasn’t enough, there’s horse riding available on site (for an additional charge) and you’re also within a mile of the nearest beach, which is walkable in about 25 minutes.
Parent friendly features
As noted above there’s a wealth of entertainment on site to keep children happy, which in our experience at Parent Friendly Stays is the best way of guaranteeing an enjoyable stay for the parents too! But there are also a few specific features at Broomhill Manor to put a smile on mum and dad’s faces. Some of the cottages (check before you book) have enclosed gardens perfect for toddlers or families travelling with a dog, and the entire complex is set back a mile from the nearest main road. All the properties come equipped with baby and toddler equipment including stair gates, bed rails and black-out blinds. Some of the cottages have private hot tubs for a perfect wind-down at the end of a busy day, and there are also shared jacuzzi and sauna facilities at the swimming pool area. You can also arrange treatments with a qualified beautician. For fitness fanatics there’s an on-site gym with treadmill, rowing machine and cross-trainer, and there’s free WiFi available throughout the site. Always a popular feature, there’s a fully CRB-checked babysitting service if you fancy trying out one of Bude’s many pubs or restaurants, and – a rare treat – there’s also a residents-only bar on site open from 6pm each day featuring a pool table, juke box and entertainment centre. We also really like the fact that during summer months croissants or pain au chocolats can be ordered from reception and there’s also an in-cottage dining service providing freshly-cooked meals direct to your door.
Broomhill Manor has to be one of the best-equipped holidays we’ve reviewed. There’s loads to keep children occupied come rain or shine and a range of options aimed at helping mum and dad relax too – in fact we think you’re unlikely to find a more parent friendly holiday. In the words of Mrs Parent Friendly Stays – “I really want to go to this one please!”
“Broomhill Manor is ideally suited to provide a balance between a holiday that the kids will love, within an environment that gives you a break also.
The secluded location of Broomhill with its magnificent lawn and car free cottage areas, means that children have plenty of room and freedom to run around and play in safety. No matter what time of the year and whatever the weather, there are many things to keep your little people entertained here at Broomhill.”
