We stayed here on a Monday to Friday break in one of the newly built Hobbit Houses. They are really glam camping pods, hand crafted, (we met the builder) mini log cabins a few yards from the hotel in a copse of trees.
On arrival our pod wasn't quite ready so we were treated to tea and coffee and sat amongst the picnic benches enjoying some of the most amazing views ever.
The pod had a large, very comfortable double bed and a camp bed for our teenage son. The place had a heater and electricity so he could keep his iPad charged and we all kept snug and warm.
The toilet block was close and totally new. The floor was rough so maybe remember your flip flops. The showers had lashings of hot water and were spacious and spotlessly clean. The hobbit houses can provide bedding for an additional charge but we took our own sleeping bags and quilts.
The place is a work in progress and the owners, really lovely people, we happy to chat about their plans and really inspired us to go back.
There are some lovely walks and over the road you can hire cycles.
We used it as a base for visiting places in Cornwall as it is fairly central and easy to get to. Despite this convenience of location it is still in an idillic spot. Truly a beautiful location. We saw wild rabbits and the land around had chickens, sheep and small lambs popping by to say hello.
If your people who like entertainment and shows and love Haven or Butlins this is not for you BUT if you love time with your families, playing cards, cooking outside, walking, beautiful scenery and generally having family time then this is a fantastic place.
Take some walking shoes not just trainers if your planning to walk.
Take ya flip flops for the showers.
Book an extra few days as you won't want to come home :)
