We had the most wonderful, relaxing time here. Between playing snooker on the full sized snooker table and relaxing in the hot tub, we enjoyed interacting with the friendly pony and two donkeys who loved being stroked. Tony is very friendly and was on hand in case we needed anything. Thank you for a lovely time!!!!

There were 8 of us that stayed in total and the house was more than big enough for us all. The hot-tub was used a lot and could get all 8 in. Beds were mega comfy. Plenty of seating room upstairs. The donkeys and horse behind the house were always wanting to be patted and fed which everyone enjoyed. The farmer that owns the place was quite often poRead morettering around and very friendly. Overall, great value for money and a lovely spot. Hide

Monks treasure is a great place ,about 8mile or 20 mins from bude ,plenty of room ,great snooker table ,lovely hot tub ,the only negative is the lack of wifi for you if you have kids as the wifi on site doesn't reach inside the building so i had to rely on my hotspot on my phone placed on the snooker room roof.

We had a great time, no one had stayed in the cottage for 4 months so was lots of cobwebs and felt a little damp, but it is a converted barn. Plenty of space and would definitely recommend.

Brilliant holiday, the farmer couldn't have been more accommodating with myself and our friends. He let the children help getting the cows in and out and also the donkeys and pony. Nothing was too much trouble. Lovely house. Kids loved the snooker table. All in all a fab holiday

The rest of the holiday was fantastic. Tony the owner was very friendly and nothing was too much trouble. The farm's a little isolated, but with a hot tub/snooker room we were very entertained. Lots of pubs and places of interest within 15-20 mins drive (Summerleaze beach is superb) and would recommend a stay here
