Like the sound of a peaceful retreat set among sloping fields and a private woodland on the Devon and Cornwall border? Hurray for Dux Farm Retreat, where there are pods in a stunning meadow just 15 minutes’ drive away from surfing beaches in Bude on the Bristol Channel. It's also a 35-minute drive from the historic fishing village of Clovelly in North Devon. Enough about the outdoors… what are the inside of the pods like? Each pod features a kingsize bed, a full-sized shower (there are no wet rooms here) and a kitchenette with everything you should need. Treat yourself to a soak in the outdoor bath too, which is completely private and big enough for two. And the bonuses keep on coming, as you may be able to see the Milky Way glitter on clear nights. For days when you all feel like chilling – or when the weather isn’t playing nice, cosy up on the sofa and watch your favourite Netflix film. If you're bringing a dog, there are private woodland walks direct from the pitches but please make sure they are kept on leads around the chickens and other livestock. When you fancy eating out or tasting some Cornish cider, there’s a gastro-pub in Pyworthy, just 20 minutes’ stroll down quiet country lanes.

Local attractions

If you fancy exploring the Cornwall and North Devon coastline on foot, hike sections of the South West Coast Path (15 minutes’ drive), turning south or north from Bude, for mesmerising sea views from soaring cliffs. Up the adrenaline levels on the waves at Crooklets or Summerleaze surfing beaches, where you can hire gear and novices can have lessons, take a dip in tidal Bude Sea Pool (all 20 minutes) or simply have a snooze on the sand. Head inland and you’ll hit Devon’s Dartmoor National Park (40 minutes) for moorland meanders up to the massive granite boulders atop Black-a-Tor (55 minutes), or to mysterious prehistoric stone circles like Nine Stones (50 minutes). Cornwall has its fair share of attractions too. Have a wander around the clifftop castle at Tintagel (45 minutes), rumoured to be the birthplace of legendary King Arthur, and then visit the eccentric Museum of Witchcraft and Magic (half an hour) for a delve into the world of magic and paganism. Get back to present-day normality with a stop off at foodie Padstow (an hour) for harbourside fish and chips or award-winning dining.
