We stayed at Rivendell for 4 nights (Mon-Fri) a few weeks ago and cannot fault it.
Both the living/sleeping pod and the bathroom pod were spotlessly clean and very well laid out. It was very handy to have a fridge and all the utensils you could need for BBQs and general meal prep. I can imagine the microwave is also very useful if the weather doesn't treat you well enough for BBQs. We were pretty lucky with the weather but I would actually like to return in winter when I bet it is very cozy.
The views are amazing as are the stars you can see at night, especially from the hot tub where we spent a lot of time! The hot tub was kept very clean and checked daily for any problems, which was reassuring as we have actually had issues with a hot tub in another property we stayed at.
Clare and her family are very welcoming and make sure you are ok without being overbearing. I was really pleased to be offered the chance to check in a bit early (without asking) on our arrival day which gave us a bit of extra time to settle in and get ourselves sorted.
The stars of Rivendell though.....those lovely piggies Rhubarb and Raspberry! I was pretty excited to meet them before I arrived but it was so lovely to have them in the field we overlooked and for it to be ok for us to stroke and feed them fruit.....they certainly enjoy an apple which was top of our shopping list for the week! Hope the piglets arrive safely soon. :-)
Thanks again to you all for a great time. It was lovely to come back to Bude after many childhood holidays spent there and Rivendell Glamping Pods really was the icing on the cake which made our holiday.
Hopefully see you again!
I booked the glamping pods for my wifes birthday! We had an amazing weekend! Weather was stunning the pods was well stocked with all essentials! The view was stunning and the hot tub was superb! A special mention to Clare and her family who was so welcoming and attentive! We couldnt ask for a anything more it was perfect! We will be returning without a doubt! The exsperience would suit any weather and very close to Bude beach and attractions,thanks again for a brilliant weekend xx
Had an amazing stay here in their lovely glamping pod with hot tub. Lovely views, Clare was lovely and friendly and very helpful. Our kids loved meeting the animals and the hot tub. Close to Bude and Tintagel/boscastle we had a fabulous stay. The pods are nice and cosy and clean.
My husband and I spent our Honeymoon at Rivendell in 2016 and decided to revisit for our 2nd Anniversary to sample the Hot Tub.
Even better weather this time around and after arriving on Saturday we only left the premises once (for Sunday lunch) before we sadly had to leave on Tuesday.
The rest of the time was spent appreciating the peace of the countryside, relaxing on the decking, lazing in the hot tub or chatting to the very charming Rhubarb and Raspberry over the fence
Sheer bliss from arrival to departure - i just wish we lived a bit closer so we could visit a bit more often
Myself and my 2 sisters stayed here for a relaxing getaway to the country and we were not disappointed. The pods were perfectly clean and well equipped and even though it was very cold and snowing we were lovely and warm in the pod and the hot tub. The owner Clare and her family were so accommodating and lovely people, they even let us have some of the freshly laid eggs from the chickens. Relatively secluded but local shops and beaches a short drive away. After the snow cleared we visited Bude, a lovely little beach side town with bars, restaurants and shops and beautiful little beaches. I would highly recommend to small groups of friends or families, great place. I plan to visit again....hopefully when the sun is shining!!
This was our first time glamping and one we won’t forget and defiantly be repeating in the future.
Thank you to Clare and Richard who are great hosts and couldn’t do enough for us. The pods were in great condition and very comfortable. The shower was like one you would have at home.
Although we went on a weekend that was very cold the coziness of the pod meant you could forget about that. The pod has everything that you could possibly need from a comfy bed, microwave, toaster, kettle and tv.
It is a very quiet secluded area, perfect for a relaxing peaceful weekend. But close driving distance to lovely sceneries and beaches.
The hot tub was a great place to relax and watch the sun go down.
Can’t wait to go again :-)
We were looking for something a bit different to do for New Year with friends and came across this gem! Situated in a lovely quiet location, but close enough for everything you might need, it’s an ideal place explore the local area, especially the coastline which is a short drive away. The pods are in an immaculate condition and come with everything you need for your stay. The hot tube is an added bonus! Perfect for New Year’s Eve, dinking fizz in the rain :-) The owners are very friendly and welcoming, as are the pigs and chickens! We will definitely be back again.
