Great Orchard Cabin

In Your Field
Great Orchard is the original name on the 1878 deeds of this 3 acre field. When we moved here, there were no apple trees anymore, so 8 years ago we re-planted, and already we get more apples than we can eat every year. The apple trees are at the top of the field, near your Cabin, then the field runs downhill, to a wet, rushy area. This is perfect for wildflowers such as Purple Loosestrife, Yellow Flag and Ladies Smock. We haven't cut hay in this field for over 2 years now, and the long tussocky grass has become a favourite hunting ground for our barn owl. If you walk down the hedge on the left of the field (when starting at the Cabin), right to the bottom, there is easy access to the little patch of woodland. This is a lovely place to explore, climb a tree and paddle in the stream.

A field, a fire and a big blue sky.

The perfect panacea in these uncertain times. Simplicity itself. A campfire under a starlit sky immersed in nature. What more could you possibly want? Run by a lovely helpful family who even supply the logs and kindling! The prices are extremely reasonable and as someone on a limited income it made my holiday affordable. Immaculate shower (that isn't on a timer!) and toilet. A world away. At least for a week or two. Highly recommended for peace and quiet.

A beautiful quiet and private place.

The setting provided the perfect place to unwind, relax and enjoy the beautiful countryside. We particularly enjoyed the very generous space, plenty of room to spread out and in light of social distancing it was reassuring to have our own facilities. The only negative would be the wasps, there were quite a few and were a bit of a nuisance, owing to the time of year, unsure of how to prevent them?!(this was the only bit of stress) Fab location by two lovely beaches, lovely pretty town of Bude and would recommend the local pub the Bullers Arms in Marhamchurch. The kitchen and dining area is great, well stocked with everything you need and there’s a lovely attention to detail and a surprise in the cupboard- so nice!! The owners, especially Anna are friendly and helpful, we felt very much welcomed. My little girl who is highly sensitive and struggles at times really came to life on this stay, having freedom to explore and enjoy the space, picking blackberries and going on mini nature hunts, no need for screens!! We loved having the fire pit too, evenings here are awesome, incredible views of the night sky and listening to animals which the kids loved. All in all we adored the place and will probably want to stay again.

Everything you need

We stayed on the exclusive pitch for 4 nights and it was just what we hoped for! No noise at all could be heard other than birds and the occasional cow! The use of our own private toilet and hot shower was perfect, knowing we were the only ones using them was great and they were very clean. We had some great camp fires and even the odd bit of rain didn’t spoil our fun as the pitch was plenty big enough for our gazebo as well as our tent. A great stay!

perfect pitches

A glorious site with mown pitches and set fire pit, a friendly welcome and so much to do in the evening. Highly recommended.

Relaxed camping at it's finest

We returned to Bakesdown Farm after a visit last year and had another lovely trip. The site is lovely and quiet with so much space. The facilities were spotlessly clean. It's a great location for winding down with brilliant trips to the beach. Thoroughly recommended.
