Rivendell Lodge at Well Farm Cottages on the Devon / Cornwall border near Bude.
Rivendell is our brand new glamping microlodge with private en-suite facilities. Some call it a “hobbit house” – it certainly has huge charm and character. If you love the idea of a holiday with a difference, a touch of adventure and romance, then Rivendell is for you. Forget previous experiences of camping, at Rivendell you will enjoy many home comforts in a warm and cosy space, perfect for single travellers, couples or families of four. From the comfort of the microlodge, you step outside to enjoy the great outdoors at first hand, perhaps strolling down to the river to enjoy some fishing. Tucked neatly into the old orchard on the farm, you will have a great deal of privacy whilst enjoying your holiday in the microlodge. Rivendell has double doors to the front, opening out onto a large decked area with glorious country views across the Tamar Valley to Devon. Enjoy meals on our all-weather dining table with reclining chairs, or relax further on one of recliners. We have no light pollution and we're sure you'll love sitting on the deck in the evenings, gazing at the night sky.
We know how important kitchen and bathroom facilities are when you are on holiday. With that in mind, you will have your own adjacent bathroom lodge with a flushable toilet, hot shower and full sized wash basin. We have also provided a wash-up / food preparation area to the rear.
Cooking meals can be done al-fresco on our gas powered barbeque with hob – perfect for Cornish breakfasts of locally sourced produce available in the village shop at Whitstone, or from Waitrose in Holsworthy. Inside the microlodge we have provided you with a kettle – essential for your early morning cuppa (no waiting for a camp fire!) There is also a microwave to make things quick and easy. So that you don't have to fill up your car with the basics, we have provided saucepans, a non-stick frying pan, crockery, cutlery and utensils.
Our microlodge was beautifully constructed with quality materials by Steve, Gary and Blaze from Microlodge in Scotland. The microlodge is insulated with a 4” air gap inside a watertight shell. It is quite spacious at 4.8 metres long, 2.4 metres wide and 2.6 metres high.
