Canvas Lodge with ensuite shower - sleeps 6 (1 at Gwel Teg Farm)
The Owner Says
We believe in simplicity, but rest assured you will not be sacrificing luxury when staying in our canvas lodges. At 45m2, our spacious lodges are placed in stunning locations and will meet your need for modern comfort and craving to be close to nature. The Canvas Lodge is suitable for 6 people, 5 adults and 1 child up to 12 years old. Our interior features a fully equipped kitchen with a wood-stove, a living/dining area, outdoor area with BBQ, and three sleeping areas with high-quality mattresses, pillows, bedding and fluffy duvets!
We are all about getting back to the simpler times away from technology and to reconnect with nature and therefore do not have electricity and wi-fi in any of our farms.
Ensuite shower inside your tent
This tent has a wonderful private shower in the tent. You can step into the warm wooden bathroom that is attached to the tent. You no longer have to walk over to the farm and after you have warmed up in front of the fireplace you can step directly into your own private and cosy bathroom. Oil lamps illuminate the bathroom and provide the real Feather Down atmosphere. In the bathroom you will also find the toilet and a sink. The shower is of course heated, you don’t have to heat it up yourself. Enjoy a super cosy private shower!
About Gwel Teg Farm
Glampers, dogs – yes. Campers, campervans, motorhomes, caravans – no.
The seaside town of Looe is five miles from the farm. It has a lovely sandy beach that's good for swimming and a harbour where you can watch the fishing boats come and go or try your hand at crabbing. The town also has a museum (01503 263709) and boat trips out to the nature reserve at Looe Island (07814 264514) are possible from here with a good chance of seeing seals. You can join the South West Coast Path and walk to Polperro (it's nine miles from site, if you decide to drive it instead). The beaches at Millendreath and Seaton are also within five miles. Thrill seekers are well catered for at Adrenaline Quarry (01579 308204), just three miles from site, where there's an inflatable playground, wild swimming, zip wires and go karting available. It's a little more sedate over at Wild Futures (01503 262 532), a primate sanctuary is just four miles from site. Further afield, the Eden Project (01726 811972) is worth the 40-minute drive it takes to get there.
Food & Drink
There's a small honesty shop where you can stock up on the basics. For local and seasonal produce, try Treddinick Farm Shop (01503 240992) on the outskirts of Looe and head in to town and the East Quay for fresh fish. If you want to eat out, perhaps try the well-cooked fish, try The Sardine Factory (01503 770262), a Bib Gourmand restaurant, on the quayside at West Looe. The Venus Cafe/Bistro on the beach at Millendreath (01503 269338), four miles from site, is also recommended.

From the A38 Devon Expressway take the exit for the B3251, about 14 miles west of Plymouth, signposted for Looe. After a further mile, turn left on to the B352, then after another half mile turn left (signposted for Hesenford) and then take the next left. After 200 yards, Gwel Teg Farm will be on the right.
Menheniot Station is the closest train station to the farm, about three miles away. From there, you would need to book a taxi to take you to the site.
