General

  • Insulated pods in a historic stone quarry
  • Private bathroom for each pod
  • Communal covered area with tables and chairs

Tents can be wooden in the 21st century. Even if you’re having a hol in a historic stone quarry, which is where the modern camping pods of Quarry Pods at Dunsdon Farm are set, just a mile from the Devon/Cornwall border and seven miles from the bude-iful coast at Bude.

New in 2012, these waterproof pods (each with their own private bathroom) are a step up from the traditional bothy structure and easily sleep up to four, and are designed to be toasty and warm even on a chilly night as they come with double glazed windows and sheep’s wool insulation – there’s an electric heater fitted too, just in case.

Pods come with their own private washroom with shower, sink and wash basin adjacent to the pods, so no sharing or queuing (huzzah) and the site has a communal covered area with tables and chairs for a chat, coffee or chillout with other campers.

All pods have mains electricity, lighting and a cool box.

  • Liked: 

    Really enjoyed our stay, the ensuite was not what we were expecting but fine as not too far to go. Very well set up, would recommend to friends.

    Disliked: 

    Would have liked the code to the rainy day room, as the evening were quite long with no tv signal.

Directions


From Holsworthy take the A3072 west towards Bude for 4.8km, and turn right to Pancrasweek. Follow this road north for 3.8km ignoring any side turns. You will pass a thatched cottage (at Gains Cross) and the farm is after approximately 400m on the right hand side, with the entrance for Quarry Pods another 100m past the farm. Drive in through the gate and straight on to enter the parking area.

Local attractions

The destinations of Devon and the coasts of Cornwall are both on your wooden doorstep, with the north Cornish coast just seven miles away and with sandtastic views as well as access to the South West Coast Path’s clifftop walks.

The coastal town of Bude is closest to the quarry and comes with a seawater swimming pool, surfing, kayaking the beaches of Crooklets and Summerleaze. The National Trust-managed pebble beach at Sandymouth is three miles further to the north for rambling around the rockpools sheltered by the high cliffs, while for village strolls and sightseeing Boscastle, Tintagel and Port Isaac are all on the same stretch of coast.

For the Devon coast, the carfree cobbled streets of historic Clovelly village and 14th-century harbour are 16 miles away. Just along the coast from that is the Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty the Hartland Peninsula: gawp at the gorgeous Hartland Abbey, work up an appetite ambling around the 12 miles of coast or buy a plant and stop for a cream tea at Docton Mill Gardens and Tearoom.

Heritage hunters can pick from all sorts of options a drive away: the last castle to be built in Britain, Castle Drogo; the Regency house and horse-drawn vehicles at Arlington Court; the country house and gardens of Lanhydrock, and the thirteenth century house and home to Sir Francis Drake, Buckland Abbey.

If mini podders have come along to any or all of the above without too much wailing and gnashing of teeth, reward them with a trip to one of the many options in the area aimed at families and juniors, such as the Blue Reef Aquarium at Newquay, The Alpaca Park at Beaworthy and sheep racing, horse whispering and mountain boarding at The Big Sheep in Bideford.

Or you could just potter around near your pod instead: Dunsdon Farm was recorded in the Domesday Book and has several old farm buildings to get historical about as well as donkeys and horses to neigh hi to as you canter past; the farm also lies next to the Site of Special Scientific Interest the Dunsdon National Nature Reserve and is the habitat for several endangered species including nesting barn owls.
