Frequently Asked Questions
Q Whats included in the Bell Tent?
In the tent you have a proper bed and futon with all bedding provided, plus a basket of logs and kindling for the woodburner. Fairy lights wound round the pole of the tent provide light. In your private camp kitchen you will find pots, pans, crockery, glassware and generally everything you should need to cook and serve a family meal. There is a 2 ring gas stove as well as the firepit with adjustable grill for barbeques outside. There is table and bench seating in the camp kitchen and a couple of chairs on the deck of your tent. Additional folding garden chairs are available.
Q Are you open year round?
Our Bell Tents are open from May to mid September each year.
Q Can I book the whole site?
Yes you can. We do accept group bookings for the whole farm on a minimum of a three night basis. Contact us to enquire about this option.
Q Can I bring my dog?
You can bring your dog if staying in one of the Bell Tents or Safari Tent. Maximum 2 dogs per tent. However ALL dogs must be kept on a lead in the yard area and only allowed off lead near the tents if they are under control. We have free range poultry (mainly in the yard) and any dog that is found chasing them will need to leave. If you feel this is a risk with your dog, we ask they are kept on a lead for the duration of the stay. Please let us know you are bringing a dog when you book, a £10 surcharge applies per dog per stay. All mess must be picked up and dogs must not be left unattended or allowed on the beds or futons. We reserve the right to charge an extra cleaning fee if care is not taken in this regard.
Q Can I fish in the river during my stay?
Unfortunately we do not own the fishing rights on the river so we cannot allow any guest to fish. If you would like to fish permits can be obtained from the Crosshands Anglers who fish the opposite bank.
Q Can I park by my tent?
No vehicles are allowed down the track to the camping areas. We have wheelbarrows for you to carry your kit, and for long camping stays we can take your kit down to the field gate in the tractor.
Q Do you have a shop onsite?
We do not have a shop as such, but we do have logs, kindling, charcoal, firelighters, eggs, bacon, sausages, beef burgers, steaks and chicken available to purchase. Please note all meat products are frozen and are subject to availability. There is a Premier shop in the village for all essentials.
Q How far is it to the beach?
There are many beautiful beaches about 30 minutes drive from here. Llangranog and Newquay are probably the closest.
Q Is there electric in the bell tents/ safari tent/ shepherds hut?
There is no electric at all near the tents. Lighting is provided by solar lights and battery lanterns. There is space to charge phones in the communal yard area.
Q What is there to do near by?
There is lots to do in the local area, but we are rural so you do need a car to get around. Visit our "Explore" section to find out details on places to visit during your stay.
