Stay in a beautiful, fully kitted-out Belle Tent here at Owls Gate on our small, private site with campfire. Beds, duvets and fully equipped kitchen tents are all provided, just bring linen, food and yourselves.
The whole site caters for a total of 17 people in 3 camps. Each camp has two bedroom tents and a kitchen tent, and can accommodate up to a maximum of 6 people. In other words, it's a bit like a two bedroom cottage - only without the cottage.
All of the tents have raised wooden floors, carpets, rugs & wall linings. Each has either a real double bed or two singles, chest of drawers, bedside tables, tea-lanterns and solar light. We provide duvets and pillows and extra blankets, just bring linen.
The site also has a bar/chill-out tent with a woodburner and a campfire and barbeque area. There is a building with toilets, showers and hair-dryer, with a further shower and toilet in our nearby workshop which also has a washing machine and drying lines.

Many sites set a maximum occupancy of 6/8 people per pitch, so try breaking your booking down into smaller groups to generate more results. For example, if you’re a group of 10, enter 5 people in your initial search and then book 2 pitches.
However, where the pitch or accommodation occupancy allows it, you can make a booking for up to 30 adults and 30 children in one booking.
To book multiple pitches or accommodation, use the 'Special requests' box on the booking page to ask to be sited together. Complete the booking form for the first booking (you can add a password and save your card so that we remember your details). Then click "Make another booking like this" at the top of the confirmation page to make the next booking.
Large groups: check the listing page for any group restrictions set out in the terms and section titled ‘Please note’.
Large tents/caravans: check the restrictions on unit dimensions to ensure your unit is suitable for the space you will be provided with.

We are very rural here and, as there is no local public transport to speak of, you will find it very difficult to go anywhere without a car
Train or Coach:
If you want to use public transport to get here, we recommend you leave the train or coach at Exeter.
From Exeter you can take a Western Greyhound coach to Davidstow Church which is walking distance from the site.
Flights to Newquay:
There are flights from various UK cities to Newquay Airport, approximately 25 miles away, where it is recommended that you hire a car.
We are in easy reach of the whole of the North Cornwall coast, Boscastle is 6 miles and Tintagel 7 miles.
Most of the North Cornwall coast is great for surfing, you can hire surfing equipment or book surf lessons at most of the beaches.
Safe beaches for children are at Widemouth and Polzeath. We can also tell you how to get to secret beauty spots on the moors with small idyllic streams, great for picnics with young children.
Bodmin Moor is fantastic for walking, the high tors of Roughtor and Brown Willy are accessable direct from the site via a Cornish sunken lane which starts at the corner of our property.
