Location description from owner
The England region
Staying in North Cornwall offers you so much on your holiday - sandy beaches, rocky coves, unspoilt countryside and friendly market towns. Enjoy the spectacular coastline and award winning beaches - great for paddling, rockpooling and sunbathing. If you love being active on holiday, you can enjoy body boarding, surfing or coasteering , swimming in Bude Seapool, canoeing down the Bude Canal, horse riding at numerous local riding schools or play golf at several local courses. And of course, the stunning South West Coast Path offers unrivalled views of the coast for those who love walking. The world renowned villages of Clovelly, Padstow and Port Isaac are an easy drive away, with the Eden Project just 1 hour in the car.
For those with young families, local attractions include Trethorne Leisure Farm, Harlequinns Bowling and Soft Playzone, The Milky Way and The Big Sheep.
With plenty of village pubs to enjoy local food and ales, bustling pannier and farmers markets and of course pasties and cream teas, you can eat well and relax on your holiday.
Bude's fantastic beaches and seapool make any holiday here memorable. You might also enjoy walking or canoeing along its Canal or coast path, playing golf on the downs or savour a local icecream or cream tea overlooking the bay. For cooler days, Bude has the Splash Leisure Pool, Harlequinns Bowling and soft playzone. Travel inland and you could meet the otters at the Tamar Otter Park, alpacas at the Alpaca Farm at Ashwater or travel down the coast to Newquay Zoo. To the north of Bude, there are many quieter beaches and coves which are well worth a visit.

“Best glamping holiday”
Fantastic little glamping pods, kitted out extremely well, and very comfortable. Bathroom pod is excellent -such a luxury to have your own toilet and hot shower! Enjoyed using the sun loungers and the BBQ too. It was so helpful to have cooking utensils and all cutlery etc provided so we didn't have to bring stuff from home. And what a luxury to have kettle/microwave/fridge and even a TV too! We went just the two of us and used the single beds as sofas, but it would be great for a family with 2 kids too, and not too expensive either. The owner's parents came to say hi when we arrived and were really helpful pointing us to the nearest supermarket and the best pubs in the area, and the owner popped by on our last day to check we'd had a good stay. -Can't fault the service! We had a great holiday! -It was the perfect balance of adventure without forgoing comfort! Lots to see & do in the area too!
We're really glad you enjoyed your stay at Rivendell. We agree that an en-suite makes a glamping break extra enjoyable!
“Well-equipped, beautiful glamping pods”
We had a great stay here - service was great, and the view was lovely. Had minor issues with access, as they'd been digging up the main road - but obviously not the fault of the owners, and we were sent warning! Heaters were provided, and the pods warmed up really quickly. And we really enjoyed our BBQ breakfast!
We're very glad you enjoyed your stay. Yes, it was annoying that the road was being dug up and pot holes repaired, but thankfully the road in is now open again and pothole free! We hope you come and stay again soon.
