Fern Leaf Roundhouse

General

  • Peaceful glamping site 10 minutes' walk from Kilkhampton
  • Sandymouth and Bude beaches within a 15-minute drive
  • Playground, massage room and cosy heated barn with barbecues

Happy news for those travelling light: bag a spot at East Thorne and there’s no need to haul heaps of gear along. At their peaceful place just outside Kilkhampton, Naomi and Adam have done their best to provide all the essentials for a tiptop Cornish break.

Each of the glamping options here has been set up with a big comfy bed, electric supply, wifi and a woodburning stove to keep things toasty. Shunning the option of making guests squelch around in the mud, the folk here have built their units on sturdy wooden decks, with plenty of space to chill out round the table and sizzle sausages on the barbie.

Lighting the coals isn’t your only cooking option: out on that deck there’s also a covered kitchen that’s well supplied with pans, crockery and the like, or you could try out the site’s woodfired clay oven. A farm shop is just up the road with various hampers available to order (or you could just stroll off to the pub in 10 minutes or so).

Also around the site are a playground, a games room, a massage room, a heated barn area and plenty of space for the kids (and/or the grownups) to run about, ride bikes and play games. A top-notch bathroom building has rain showers and hairdryers for beautifying post-beach barnets.

All of which leaves plenty of space in the car for fun stuff: buckets and spades are a good idea for Sandymouth beach, or perhaps a surfboard for catching waves in Bude – both are within 15 minutes’ drive of the site.

Lovely site. Hot showers. Clean. Helpful staff. Good for older kids.09/08/2019

    The site was great for our 7 year old. Lots to keep him amused and good opportunities for being as sociable as he wantes.

    Lovely yurt, although less than ideal for our one year old who is into everything.

    Lovely helpful staff.

    Disliked: 

    The game room was just a big room with a sofa in it. Could do with a little spruce and a tv/dvd player and some games and an x box/wii maybe. Be nice to have somewhere to escape to as yurt was so stressful with trying to contain our little one. Especially as the weather was awful.

From the manager...

Thank you for taking the time to review. We were a bit gutted with the 6/10 for cleanliness especially as your titled implied otherwise. We understand it can be tricky when travelling with little ones.
The games room is under re-vamp, we dod have a cool table in their but it got damaged so we had to take it out. The is next on our list to sort after developing our site with new en-suite glamping accommodation. We are waiting for better windows to be fitted in the back of the games room before we can make a start. As soon as this is done we are able to start our plans for this area.
Always evolving, ever improving.

    The site was very well maintained and the hosts were fantastic. A bow fire was lit every evening, weather permitting which my children absolutely loved. The hosts also have 54, yes 54, pets which my children loved holding the new puppies.

Local attractions

First stop, the beach. Or, more precisely, the beaches, for there are several very fine specimens around here. The long sandy stretch at Sandymouth (four miles away) is the nearest, but it’s also worth checking out the sea pool at Summerleaze, the rockpools at Crooklets and the excellent sunset spot of Widemouth Bay.

This stretch of coast is also mighty popular with surfing types: Bude, six miles away, is the hub of action, with surf lessons on offer for those who need a hand with the ways of the waves. Paddleboarding, wakeboarding and an inflatable aqua park course are 20 minutes away at North Devon Wake Park.

Sticking to dry land, there are loads of fab coastal walks nearby, and a rather viewsome golf course in Bude. For days out, the Milky Way Adventure Park is 20 minutes away by car, and the Eden Project is around an hour away.

Must see

  • RHS Garden Rosemoor (15.5 miles)
  • Tintagel Castle (18.8 miles)
