Caravans and Camp Sites in Bodmin Moor, Cornwall
Caravan and camping holidays have come a long way in recent years! A little preparation can make them an economical holiday to please the parents and an adventure to please the kids.
Stay in a beautiful, fully kitted-out Belle Tent at Owls Gate on a small, private site with campfire, and experience 'glamping' at its most relaxed. Beds, duvets and a fully fitted out kitchen tent are all provided, just bring linen, food and yourselves.
Owls Gate is set in 2½ acres of gardens on the edge of Bodmin Moor and 5 miles from the North Cornwall coast. Secluded at the end of a farm track, Owls Gate is on the side of a shallow valley and is surrounded on three sides by open farmland, home to ponies and rare breed cattle. To the north it is protected by beech trees, beyond which is our only neighbour (100 metres). Close by we have our workshop where we make beautiful garden tents and marquees to order.
The campsite is a south and west facing field with the south bordering onto farmland. It is divided into three shallow terraces with young trees, shrubs and flowers. There is a sunken lane giving direct access, a walk of about 15 minutes, to Davidstow Moor and Bodmin Moor.
Cornish Tipi Holidays
Wake up to the sound of birdsong, go swimming before breakfast in the clear water of a secluded lake. Cook your bacon and eggs over an open fire while you plan your day, or just laze it away in the peace and quiet of your own personal tipi. You can always go fishing tomorrow, and walk along the cliffs the day after that…
Staying in a canvas tipi with family or friends, living close to the earth and the rhythm of nature, is an extraordinary experience. It’s a mixture of old fashioned camping in a beautiful place, with a very modern desire to be more environmentally friendly than just about any other holiday could be. This is the place to explore the landscape of your imagination, the place of your childhood dreams, where you first found adventure, where fish splash in the lake at dawn and sparks rise from your campfire at dusk.
