Rivendell Lodge is Well Farm's brand new glamping microlodge with private en-suite facilities. Some call it a hobbit house – it certainly has huge charm and character. If you love the idea of a holiday with a difference, a touch of adventure and romance, then Rivendell is for you.
Forget previous experiences of camping, at Rivendell you will enjoy many home comforts in a warm and cosy space, perfect for single travellers, couples or families of four. From the comfort of the microlodge, you step outside to enjoy the great outdoors at first hand, perhaps strolling down to the river to enjoy some fishing.
Tucked neatly into the old orchard on the farm, you will have a great deal of privacy whilst enjoying your holiday in the microlodge.
Alongside the microlodge sits the facilities lodge for your own private use whilst staying. The spacious facilities lodge is fitted with a flushable toilet, wash basin and hot shower. Along the rear of the facilities lodge is a commercial sink for food preparation and washing up.
There are barbecue areas, shared children's play area and fly fishing (bring your own rods and licence) on the River Tamar or River Deer. Groceries from Whitstone village store can be pre-ordered and delivered in time for arrival.

Well Farm Cottages are in the village of North Tamerton on the Cornwall side of the Cornwall/Devon border. Just to confuse you, we have a Devon postal address!
From the M5 at Exeter, take the A30 towards Okehampton/Launceston/Bodmin. At Launceston, exit at the Pennygillam roundabout for Launceston/Bude/Holsworthy. Follow the signs for the B3254 to Bude. After about nine miles you will see a right-hand turning marked 'North Tamerton 2 ½'. Take this turning – it is a country lane with farmland on either side.
Upon entering the village you will see terraced bungalows on the left and houses to the right. Proceed down the hill straight through the small crossroads (church on left set back from the road). After a further 100m the road bends slightly to the left and you will see the entrance to Well Farm Cottages on your left. Proceed up the drive – you have arrived!
If you reach the stone bridge at the bottom of the hill, you have missed the entrance – do a U-turn.
Your satnav may direct you cross country through Halwill, Holsworthy etc – this may be a slightly shorter route but will probably take longer.
Permitted arrival time
We advise you to take out holiday insurance. If you are unable to come on holiday due to illness, bereavement etc, we will endeavour to fit you in at a later date. If we re-let the holiday you had booked, you may be entitled to a full or partial refund at our discretion.
Please note that your deposit paid to Pitchup.com is non-refundable.
Payment of balance
The balance is due eight weeks prior to arrival. If the booking is made within eight weeks of the arrival date, then the balance is payable as soon as possible and in any event cleared funds must have been provided prior to the arrival date.
Please contact the campsite to arrange payment.
