The Owner Says
Set amongst a working farm, in the beautiful North Cornish countryside and with plenty of space.
The glamping cabins/pods have been hand built on the farm and can each sleep up to 4 people (best suited to 2 adults and 2 children).
They have all been built with double insulation meaning they stay cool in the summer months, and warm in the cooler months.
They feature a family size dining table with seats in the back room which convert to a double bed for the night (king size). The front room has two long benches which become single beds at night. There is plenty of under seat storage plus hooks and lots of shelving.
Every cabin has a private deck to the front of the french doors.
The cabins are just under 5m in length, 2.4m wide and nearly 3m tall inside, therefore are deceptively spacious whilst remaining cosy.
Each cabin has access to their own private shower room with walk-in shower, toilet, sink, mirror and hooks for clothes/towels. The shower room is lockable from the inside and outside.
There are two shared kitchens, each with refrigerator, microwave, toaster, kettle, sinks (hot/cold water) and storage.
We like to promote a back to nature experience so you won't find electricity in the cabins/pods, however we realise guests like to stay connected at times so we provide free WIFI and there are device charging lockers in each of the kitchens (available to hire for a small fee).
The bench cushions easier become mattresses for the evenings. You'll just need to bring your own linen to make it complete (or you can hire linen/bedding from us for a small fee).
About Higher Culloden Farm
Suitable ForGlamping only. Groups welcome (stag and hen parties by prior arrangement only). No pets.
It's a pleasant ½-mile walk into Camelford, which has all the essential shops and things you'll need, plus a large play park for children set alongside the River Camel.
The closest beach is Trebarwith Strand (5½ miles; 15-minute drive), which is popular with surfers, while other top spots like Polzeath, Daymer Bay, Widemouth Bay and Summerleaze beach in Bude are all eminently reachable. Spend the day surfing at Polzeath, or take the walk across the coastline to Daymer Bay then Rock, where you can get the short ferry ride over to Padstow for some lunch.
Inland, visiting Bodmin Moor is also a must. Higher Culloden Farm just a few miles away from Roughtor, the second largest peak on the Moor and the most exuberant hikers can even walk there directly from the farm. From Roughtor, the largest peak, Brown Willy can be walked to in less than 1 hour too. As the highest point in Cornwall, you get the most stunning views across the moor and beyond.
If you like cycling, then you can't glamp in the Camel Valley without pedalling the Camel Trail. Pick up the trail at Bodmin and follow it all the way to Padstow. If you don't have bikes of your own, then there are plenty of hire centres along the way (there are several in Wadebridge). The Wadebridge to Padstow route is the flattest section, making it very popular with families.
Higher Culloden Farm is also located in a designated dark skies zone, one of just a few in the UK, so expect excellent stargazing on clear nights.
Food & Drink
