  • Liked: 

    The pod was Cosy and with such a little heater, it kept the whole place toasty.
    Hot tub was lovely.
    Friendly locals, willing to help out with anything you need.
    Only a 20 minute drive to the town centre of Bude, where there is also a beach.
    We always felt safe and secure in the farm grounds.

    Disliked: 

    The wifi kept cutting in and out, but not such a bad thing when you want to get away from all that.

Really enjoyable couple of nights away 07/11/2016

Reviewer's country: United Kingdom Ailis M. Mobile phone icon Confirmed

  • 1 bedroom camping pod
  • Recommend to friends   Visit again
  • Liked: 

    The pod was clean with nice touches i.e cushions and blankets. A welcome tray was containing tea, coffee, sugar, marshmallows etc was a nice surprise. On the morning of departure the owner Clare sent a text stating we could arrive from 2pm instead of the usual 4pm arrival. After settling in we were welcomed by Clare's father who couldn't have made us feel more welcome, telling us about the location and getting to know us - we even got fresh eggs in the morning. After researching these type of pods I'm amazed what Well Farm had to offer for the price, many pods are a lot more expensive with no en suite facilities.The location is very remote - I'd say a car is necessary to go to pubs, shops etc. The beach is about a 20 minute drive away. However it was a lovely peaceful 2 night break in the beautiful countryside. I would strongly recommend this to anyone looking for a quiet break.

    The owners are very friendly, quite atmosphere. Liked having access to the fresh eggs from the chickens in the morning. Location perfect as only short distance 15-20min drive from the beach Bude. Pod very cosy, great facilities, and great to have the second pod as bathroom. Loved having the decking area with table and chairs to ourselves and the view was beautiful. Would definitely go back here. Very peaceful place.

Directions


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 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.

Local attractions

A wealth of choice is close by for those who want to be active on holiday, from the beaches and sea pool at nearby Bude, bodyboarding or surfing at Widemouth Bay, canoeing along the Bude Canal, cycling along the Ruby, Tarka or Camel trails, sailing at Tamar or Roadford Lakes, golfing at the numerous nearby courses and sea fishing from famed Clovelly village.

Surf schools are 20 minutes away at Bude, including the Big Blue Surf School, which has disabled surfing instruction for under 18s. Several riding stables are nearby if you love anything equestrian.

For quieter days, stroll around the walks and trails of the surrounding countryside, fish for trout on the Deer and Tamar rivers, or take a short drive to access the spectacular coastline, South West Coast Path and beaches of Bude, Widemouth and Crackington Haven. Dartmoor is a short distance inland.

Also on offer are trips to Port Isaac, home of the popular Doc Martin TV series; sampling seafood at Rick Stein's restaurant in Padstow; exploring the Eden Project or The Lost Gardens of Heligan, and climbing the tor to visit Brentor Church on Dartmoor.
