Glenwhan Gardens has a tearoom serving full meals as well as cakes, sandwiches and drinks, and guests are welcome to explore the gardens at will, including the moorland walk. The site has both cultivated and wild areas, and there's plenty of wildlife to look out for, including red squirrels, birds, wildfowl and fish in the lake. There are several other gardens to visit nearby too, and also beaches, castles and walking trails.
The shepherd's hut is a great space for two people looking for a secluded stay in rural surroundings. It has a well-equipped kitchen with hob and woodburning stove, a shower room, comfortable double bed, parking space and free wifi.

Check availability at Glenwhan Gardens…
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.
