Glamping is fun and unique and Rivendell is just that! This picture was taken prior to the hot tub being installed.
Relax in the hot tub on the deck, and soak up the sights and sounds of rural countryside.
The pods sit on a large deck with a hot tub, overlooking open countryside where there is plenty of space to dine, barbecue and sunbathe.
Looking back towards the Living Pod on the left, and the Utilities Pod on the right with the owners' farmhouse in the background.
The cosy interior of the Living Pod provides you with a double bed (4' wide) and two singles (2' wide).
The very cosy double bed is (4') wide.
The single beds (2' wide) are position on each side of the Living Pod.
Looking back towards the beds.
You also have your little kitchen-area within the Living Pod with microwave, fridge, kettle and a flatscreen TV too.
You will have everything you will need for your glamping holiday, there is a fully stocked inventory.
The single beds convert into your living-space, and create two long bench sofas.
This really is a great spot to relax in the hot tub and enjoy the views over Cornwall and Devon in the distance.
Next door to the Living Pod is the Utilities Pod with your en suite shower-room.
With a lovely hot water shower.
The shower-room is complete with a wash-basin and proper flusing toilet.
Although fully insulated, you even have extra heating if required in the Utilities Pod and the Living Pod for those cooler months.
The washing up area and the kitchen equipment is all at the back of the Utilities Pod.
The little meadow in front is occasionally home to sheep and chickens.
Take some time out in the bubbling hot tub.
Rhubarb and Raspberry, the gorgeous Kune Kune pigs, will delight all.
There are a few of these lovely little ladies to watch in the meadow in front of the Pods too.
The sheep sometimes graze in the meadow below Rivendell.
There is a small fire pit area in the meadow that you are welcome to use.
There is a small games-room on site, with WiFi available too.
The children's play-area is just beside the pods.
Glorious views over open countryside from your Pod and the spacious decked-area.
Welcome to Rivendell Glamping.

Rivendell Glamping Pods are curvy, cute, comfortable and unique in design. They provide the opportunity to enjoy camping in luxury with fabulous far reaching views across the Tamar Valley during the day, and dark starry skies at night.

Set just behind the main farmhouse, on the edge of a paddock and near the shared children's play-area, these two cedar-clad cylindrical 'Hobbit-style' pods offer living accommodation in one, and full washing facilities in the other with shower cubicle, WC, wash-basin and, at the rear, an open-air kitchen sink which is sheltered under the roof of the pod.

The enclosed, raised deck gives space for all to enjoy al fresco meals or to just sit and relax on the recliners or in your very own bubbling hot tub after a day exploring. The living pod has a double bed (4' wide) nestling between the two singles (2' wide), and if the weather is inclement you will be warm and cosy with a flat screen television and DVD player to keep you entertained. Or, just throw open the double doors and enjoy the view from the warmth of the pod!

The meadow below is home to the Owner's gorgeous Kune Kune pigs, Rhubarb and Raspberry, who you are welcome to meet, and some chickens too. Situated in the small rural hamlet of North Tamerton, the surfing town of Bude with its famous sea pool and many surf schools is only a 20 minute drive away, as is the wide expanse of sandy beach at Widemouth Bay. The bustling market town of Holsworthy is just five miles, and the popular locations of Port Isaac, Boscastle and Padstow are within a 30 minute drive.

You are welcome to roam the 250 acres of farmland (please take care with livestock) and if the paddock is empty you are welcome to use this space too, including the fire-pit area. You can stroll directly down to the River Tamar and River Deer along the quiet road where you are welcome to fly fish for trout – bring your own licence (or purchase locally) and equipment, or perhaps take a picnic and just enjoy the peace and tranquility.

Rivendell is a unique glamping experience situated in a delightful rural area only a short distance from the dramatic north Cornwall/Devon coast. The Rivendell Glamping Pods measure 4.8 metres long, 2.4 metres wide and 2.6 metres high.
