New Spa Treatments

Our therapists are always thinking of new treatments for our guests to enjoy !
Keighley has attended some really interesting seminars and workshops this summer at Spiezia (the Cornish organic producers) and has now added two new treatments to her repertoire at Forda. There is a new “Cornish organic anti-ageing facial” and a “Hands & Feet Treat” - everyone has loved them so far! Our full current treatment list is available on

Kilk in Bloom!

This year's flower festival has just taken place in Kilkhampton, and this year the theme was Trades & Professions.
All of the entries were very impressive, not to mention extremely clever and inventive!

Our submission here at Forda (pictured) was created by Gillian (with a little help from her friends!) and some of the flowers used are actually made from dishcloths and rubber gloves!

Gillian chose the title 'domestic engineer' but it has been suggested that 'domestic goddess' may have been more appropriate!

Forda Article Published by Visit England

We're thrilled here at Forda to have been featured in an article by 'Quality Edge' - VisitEngland's magazine.

The article was written for the trade to highlight the importance of cleanliness - with their research showing that "94% of guests consider the cleanliness and hygiene standards of accommodation to be either extremely important or important". We can only agree!

The article says that "about 10% of self-catering properties got top marks for housekeeping, compared with about 6% of guest accommodation and 2% of hotels."

Forda was the only self-catering place from the whole of the UK included in their article because we have achieved a perfect 100% score for several years in the VisitEngland inspections for cleanliness!

They even included this picture of our ladies ! - we are very fortunate to have such a great team of cleaners - without them we couldn't keep up the high standards.

Thank you girls!
