Diddylake Shepherd Huts

1 unit · Glamping15 acres · Bodmin Moor, England
Two handcrafted shepherd huts in a very private, tranquil location on Bodmin Moor. The huts are off grid and have a low environmental impact. We're 3.5 miles away from the picturesque village of St Neot and 8 miles away from the historic market town of Liskeard. The North and South coasts are easily accessible offering some of the best surfing, swimming and cliff walks. The huts are cosy and homely with logburner and comfortable bed! The spring fed hot/cold shower is next to a compost loo. It’s not often you get to live in the heart of a Site of Special Scientific Interest, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty or a Dark Sky Reserve, but Diddylake is in the middle of all three. The two huts set by Diddylake house (the ruin) on the rolling moors feel a world away from just about anything. One hut is your bedroom, with wood-burning stove and thick blankets keeping it cosy in any weather, and the other is your kitchen with hobs and a dining table and the BBQ and fire pit just outside. The shower and compost loo are in their own wooden hut down by the old house. The whole site has been done out by Jackson with recycled finds and local timber, giving the spaces a soft woody smell and a homely feel. There might be a chilly stroll to the loo or a dash between the huts here and there, but it all gives you a sense of living in a different age and in real wilderness. Jacksons home is a few hundred metres away, and doesn’t intrude on you at all, but it’s still close enough that you can wander up for assistance or to visit the livestock. The rest of your time you have the whole of Bodmin Moor on your doorstep and the coast within easy reach. Split your days between rambling in the hills, trips to surfing beaches or the marked hiking trails round nearby Colliford Lake. Even lounging at the huts you’ll not want for wildlife encounters. There's lots of wildlife to observe, birds include buzzards, duck, swallows, skylarks and cuckoos just to mention a few. Listen carefully and you could hear a red kite. Deer and fox are frequent visitors and keep an eye open for butterflies, dragonflies, newts and frogs. Keep your camera to hand! At night, the seclusion is brought home by spectacular starry skies.

Slow Glamping at Tillislow Farm

1 unit · Glamping350 acres · Okehampton, Devon, South West England
Escape to Devon and enjoy the luxury of our shepherds hut & hot tub. We're not your average campsite. Our family farm is 350 acres, here you’ll have your own private woodland during your stay. Take a dip in the wood fire hot tub, use the outdoor shower and chill with a glass of wine next to the fire pit. We’ve kitted out an old farm silo and made it a unique outdoor kitchen with all the essentials. The shepherds hut has a double bed fitted, indoor flushing loo and sink. It also has a wood burner to keep you cosy during winter. It's fully insulated and has lighting, as well as plugs so you can charge your phones. The woodland itself is all yours during your stay. it's a native copse (small woodland) which is under 1 acre. There's a stream which runs through the copse, at the entrance a small bridge connects the field to the woods. Tillislow Farm is over 350-acres which includes the main farm, woodlands, streams and ofcourse Slow Glamping. The farm has been run by the same family (Hopper's) for a century. Today it's managed by Jon’s uncle (David) and dad (Michael). Previously a dairy farm, now they rear beef cattle and grow wheat and barley. There’s plenty to discover for fellow nature lovers. If you want to venture further than the campsite, you can head down to the farm yard - please bear in mind it’s a working farm so keep an eye out for tractors, machinery and livestock. If you continue further on, you’ll end up in Tillislow wood. The ancient woodland is teaming with wildlife - if you’re lucky you might spot a deer. Follow the path (an old railway track) which runs alongside the river and you’ll come across the quarry, a little further is a bridge.This is our favourite place on the farm to walk. For the very brave, enjoy a refreshing dip in the River Carey.

Farmer Oaks Hut

1 unit · Glamping1 acre · Devon, South West England
Set among the green countryside of the rural west of Devon, Farmer Oak's Hut is a welcoming glamping site tucked away in the corner of a peaceful field. Swap your car for an old-fashioned apple cart and cart your kit over to this smart shepherd's hut for a peaceful stay in a private enclosed garden. Although the name of the hut is inspired by the protagonist of 'Far from the Madding Crowd' Gabriel Oak, this shepherd's hut in Dippertown near Tavistock and just over the border with Cornwall has a good deal more mod cons than the one in Hardy's novel (there's deliberately no TV or wifi, though – this place was designed for switching off). The hut has an en-suite shower room with your own fluffy towels and a "proper" WC, of course there's a comfy double box-bed with fairy lights and lanterns for you to create a romantic atmosphere. The signature cast iron EVERHOT stove is available for those chillier nights, and for food prep you're covered with a toaster, fridge, microwave and two-ring electric hob and the EVERHOT even has a built in oven - rare for a shepherd hut. There are also outdoor kitchen facilities, with enamel cups and plates as well as pots and pans you can use over the firepit. In the garden, a wooden table, benches and traditional deckchairs are available, and there's a covered area for shade or shelter from the rain. In the field, a short distance from the hut, there's a little store where you can buy homemade jams, chutneys, marmalade and fresh eggs; the owners also can supply you with fresh bread to order and scones for that must-have Devon cream tea. NEWS UPDATE - We now offer a weekly discount. You ca stay for up to 7 nights for discounted price of £385. To get your discount please message us for a discount code before booking online.

Farm shepherd's huts near Newquay guide

Overview

Camping in Newquay is all about the beach. And when you return from a day at the seaside with blissfully sandy feet and the taste of sea salt on the lips, a tent might be all you need for a good night’s sleep. Whether you’re a seasoned surfer or hoping to catch your first wave, you can’t come to Newquay without hitting the water. There are 12 sandy beaches to choose from—head to the surf hub of Fistral Beach, explore the rock pools at Tolcarne Beach, or go snorkelling at Crantock Beach. Hike along the South West Coast Path, cycle along the seafront, or go bird-watching at the Gannel Estuary, then cap it all off with a seafood dinner overlooking Newquay Harbour. Campers have options too—check into a holiday park, go glamping in a luxury yurt, or join revellers at the annual Boardmasters Festival.

Best Beaches in Newquay

With 12 stretches of sand to choose from around Newquay, there’s a beach for every type of camper and the place is great for family holidays. If it’s the world-famous surf you want, make your way through the dunes to the cliff-backed sands of Fistral Beach with its surf schools, cafes and regular competitions, or try Watergate Bay or Holywell Bay just along the coast. Central Towan Beach is popular among surfers and families with buckets and spades, but for somewhere a little quieter, perhaps try the horseshoe-shaped bay of Lusty Glaze or Tolcarne Beach, where low tide reveals the perfect places for rockpooling.

Where to go

West Cornwall

South of Newquay, the coastal road to St Ives provides a dramatic backdrop for a road trip. Stop along the way to surf or horseback ride at Perranporth beach, spot dolphins along the St Agnes Heritage Coast, or visit the blue flag beaches around St Ives. Another highlight is a visit to Land’s End, the westernmost point of mainland Britain.

Northeast Coast

Sea-cliff walks await along Watergate Bay, Trevose Head, and Pentire Point, all worthwhile destinations along Cornwall’s north shore. Campsites and caravan parks dot the coast between Port Isaac and Tintagel, and there’s plenty to explore in the area. Follow in the footsteps of King Arthur at Tintagel Castle; admire the views from the High Cliff, Cornwall’s highest point; or continue north to catch some waves in Bude.

Cornish Riviera

The shores of the "Cornish Riviera"—the south coast between Falmouth and Fowey—are a natural playground of forested headlands and sandy beaches. Stop by Carlyon Bay, Par Sands, or Porthpean Beach to swim and take part in water sports, then head inland to visit the Eden Project or enjoy a beer tasting at the St Austell Brewery. For camping, choose between family-friendly caravan parks or quiet farm campsites away from the crowds.

When to go

Newquay is one of Cornwall’s most popular destinations, and it has the crowds to match. Advance bookings are essential in July and August, for everything from campsites to restaurants. Lifeguard patrols run from Easter through early October, and this is the best time to hit Newquay’s beaches. Winters can be wet and windy along the coast, but there are some benefits to an off-season visit, including free parking around town and the best surf.

Know before you go

  • Newquay has a few camping and outdoors stores where you can pick up supplies for your camping trip. 
  • Newquay has public transport links to many of the surrounding towns, but it is handy to have your own transport, especially if staying at rural campsites.
  • Most campsites require advance booking, and many ask for the full payment in advance. Be sure to check opening dates, as many campsites close in the winter months.
  • Wild camping is illegal throughout Cornwall.
  • While the beaches are undoubtedly the main attraction, there’s more to Newquay holidays than sunbathing on the sands. Attractions include an aquarium and adventure parks, and the town makes a great base from which to head out with St Ives and Land’s End to the south or Port Isaac and Padstow to the north.
