A Record Turnout!

More people than ever before turned out on Christmas morning this year to take part in the traditional Christmas Day Swim to raise funds for Bude Surf Life Saving Club. Around 700 people braved the chilly Atlantic Ocean, making this years event the biggest yet! Well done to all who took part!

Best British Beaches!

The Sunday Times devoted an entire special issue travel supplement last weekend,  to what they described as 'the definitive guide to Britain's top beaches.'

We are very pleased to report that our very own Summerleaze made the cut, along with a recommendation for lunch at Life's a Beach (www.lifesabeach.info) for their delicious mackerel fishcakes.

This great spotted woodpecker has become quite a regular visitor to the lodges here at Forda. This picture was taken by one of our regular guests from the kitchen window of her lodge. Thanks for sharing Sue!

Born to be Wild!

Lovely video of our little leveret being released back into the wild yesterday evening (and what a glorious evening it was!) This beautiful creature was rescued here at Forda back in February and has settled back in flawlessly! It was a treat to see her 'haring' around this morning!
