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.

Northcombe Farm Shepherds Hut

1 unit · Glamping21 acres · Beaworthy, England
Whether you’re planning on darting down to Dartmoor National Park for hikes and the like or exploring sandy beaches and surf hotspots on the Devon coast, you’re going to need somewhere cosy to stay that’s within reach of it all. That’s exactly what you get with the shepherd’s hut at Northcombe Farm, just half an hour’s drive from Dartmoor National Park, 35 minutes from Bude and 40 minutes from Widemouth beach. That’s not all – the shepherd’s hut also has stabling facilities available for one horse, and with three bridleways nearby, there are plenty of options for outings. With two private fishing lakes, you’ll be free to spend the morning fishing for roach and tench if you wish. The river Wolf also runs through the site’s boundaries. It’s likely you’re already aware of the excellent beaches along the south Devon coast, but fab views can also be caught from the ferry or boat trips that operate around the coast. Soak up all that spectacular scenery from the South West Coast Path too, along with splendid seaside towns along the clifftop route. South Devon has three areas designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, as well as a World Heritage Site, a selection of national nature reserves, Sites of Special Scientific Interest, forests, woodlands and parks. They’re all mighty good places to appreciate nature at its finest. Beaworthy (10 minutes’ drive) first, perhaps, for granite tors, standing stones and ancient woodlands? Or Dartmoor’s ponies, stannary towns and peaceful villages?

Dog-friendly shepherd's huts near Tintagel guide

Overview

Tintagel–also known as Trevena–is a village located on the rugged, cliffy northern coast of Cornwall, in southwestern England. Tintagel and the nearby Tintagel Castle are associated with the legends of King Arthur, and archaeological evidence also suggests a centuries-long history. The clifftop castle is a popular tourist attraction and the views and cliffside paths are worth braving the crowds to see, but Tintagel is also a convenient base for exploring other parts of Cornwall. There are a handful of caravan parks and campsites around Tintagel, and many more in the surrounding Cornish countryside.

Top things to do in Tintagel

Like much of the rest of the south west, Tintagel has been attracting people on holiday for generations thanks in part to its historic sites including, of course, the English Heritage-listed castle. The ruins of this sprawling, 1,500-year-old castle, with links to the legendary King Arthur, are split between the mainland and a headland. A visit includes the opportunity to visit the beach below, and if the tide’s out, Merlin’s Cave too.

Over in Tintagel village, another somewhat smaller site of historical interest is the National Trust’s Old Post Office. This crooked building is actually a 14th-century farmhouse that was repurposed as a post office in Victorian times. And if you head a little way out of town, you can discover St Nectan's Glen, a shady woodland walk passing three waterfalls and the site of the hermitage of the sixth-century Saint Nectan—with a cafe and shop thrown in for good measure.

If it's beaches you're here for, the small Tintagel Haven beach at the foot of the cliffs is worth a look, but like many of the small beaches and coves tucked among the rugged cliffs of this part of the Cornish coast, it's only accessible when the tide's out. You don’t have to travel far to find wide bays and golden sands though. Trebarwith Sands, two miles south of Tintagel, is good for swimming and surfing at low tide, and it isn’t far from the well-known beaches at Polzeath and Bude. For coastal walking, you’re spoiled for choice with the South West Coast Path tracking a route along the entire coast of Cornwall (and beyond). Set your compass for Port Isaac or Boscastle to try freshly landed fish and explore the winding streets of charming Cornish harbour villages.

Where to go

Bodmin Moor

Southeast of Tintagel, the large granite moorland of Bodmin Moor contains some of Cornwall’s highest peaks, and is a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB). The bleak, heather-covered moorland is still used as a grazing site for ponies, but was densely populated in the Bronze Age, so contains archaeological sites of interest. A highway runs through the moor so it’s easy to visit on a day trip, and there are hiking and cycling trails to explore.

Trevose Head Heritage Coast

The spectacular cliffy coastline doesn’t stop at Tintagel–further west is the Trevose Head Heritage Coast, a rugged stretch of walking paths frequented by wildlife and dotted with picturesque lighthouses and other historic sites. Visitors may also see seals here. There are camping spots and caravan parks throughout the area, particularly around the village of Padstow.

Tamar Valley AONB

Straddling the Cornwall–Devon border, the Tamar Valley AONB is southeast of Tintagel, beside Cornwall’s English Channel coast. The Tamar, Tavy, and Lynher Valleys meet here and become the Tamar, flowing into the ocean near Plymouth. There are walking and cycling paths, from short trips to multi-day expeditions that reach from the south coast near Plymouth to the north coast, further north from Tintagel.

When to go

Tintagel is a fascinating and atmospheric place to visit at any time of year, but to best appreciate the outdoor attractions, visit in summer. During this season, the weather will usually be warm, relatively dry, and the days long–ideal for tent or caravan camping. Outside of summer, opt for cabin or cottage accommodation.
