30 acre farm offers a back to nature experience in a yurt and handmade hut plus camping pitches close to Bude

Peace and tranquility guaranteed on this 30 acre farm in North Cornwall, close to the coast where you can stay in a handbuilt orchard cabin which sleeps 5.

Locally you can visit the ruins of Penhallam Manor or if you prefer more action try your hand at zorbing over the hills near the coastal town of Bude. Follow this up by a walk along the canal path and a proper Cornish ice-cream for a perfect end to the day.

Back on site enjoy the beauty of nature around you. The Orchard Cabin has been made from local timber and offers views from its sunny veranda over the growing orchard, fields and woodland. Enjoy picking an apple from the trees at the top of the field or stroll down the hill and relish in the many varieties of wild flowers. Inside the cabin you can find 2 bedrooms, one with a double bed and the other with twin beds, plus 2 fold up camp beds are available. The living area has a woodburner to keep the cabin cosy and is the perfect place to relax with a good book or board game. The property has a separate kitchen building with gas hob and grill, table and chairs plus all the pots and pans you could need. Alongside there is a bathroom hut with hot water shower and compost toilet. Outside you can find a mowed area, great for kicking a ball around on, or maybe a game of French cricket. Once night fall comes, light the fire pit and open up a bag of marshmallows and partake in a spot of stargazing or even a campfire singsong!

Also on site are 4 basic camping pitches that come with fire pits. These are naturally separated by long grass and meadow flowers. For those who prefer more privacy chose the exclusive pitch which is located in its own meadow and benefits from a private compost toilet and hot water shower.

Communal facilities include a fridge freezer and phone charging point which can be found at the farm which is approximately 130 metres away from the cabin. There is also a little caravan shop which stocks important items such as ice-cream and marshmallows! Both properties are off grid so have no electric, perfect for that back to nature glamping experience.

No pets.
