What's it like to stay on the farm?

Somewhere to gather, play, cook and simply take it easy.

Higher Culloden Farm sits in a hidden corner in the heart of Camelford, North Cornwall – it enjoys being both in the countryside and near the action. Settle down in one of our five off-grid pods, sleeping up to a family of four, with your own private shower room and toilet just a few metres away, and full use of the shared facilities. Here’s the detail…

Your cosy camping pod

Your simple off-grid insulated timber pod is perfect for a back-to-nature family getaway. They measure 4.8m long, 2.4m wide, and are 2.8m high inside, providing a surprising amount of space.

  • Each pod sleeps up to two adults and two young children (the children’s beds are suitable up to about the age of 12)
  • Plenty of under bed storage and shelving
  • Like a caravan, the double bed area can turn into a large dining table
  • Two magnetic rechargeable dimmable touch lights inside (but you might want to bring a lantern too)
  • A small fold out table
  • Bedside bumpers available to ensure little ones stay tucked up in the kids’ beds (5’6″ long and about 2 foot wide)
  • Double glazed window and doors
  • Lockable doors – keep your stuff safe and secure
  • Large decking area to the front and own picnic bench nearby
  • Each pod also has a smoke alarm, carbon monoxide alarm and fire extinguisher.

The Camp Cookout Corner

Get culinary at the Cornish Campfire Cookout Corner which boasts a huge 120cm diameter barbecue firepit with four barbecue grills, dutch oven, marshmallow forks and roasting pan, for some epic pitmaster-style barbecue evenings that could cater for the whole site!

With four wooden armchairs and several picnic benches under the two canvas canopies, there’s plenty of room for everyone to sit and feast and get to know your holiday neighbours.

Traditional barbecues you can freely use privately near to your pod and a bookable pizza oven are both available.

All the gear can be found in the barbecue shed.

Your private bathroom

Each camping pod has its own lockable private wetroom and toilet in the handy facilities block in the same field as the pods. No more walking across a field with towels, toothbrushes or toilet paper! Simply leave what you need in your bathroom for your entire holiday.

Each has:

  • A large wet room walk-in shower with shower curtain
  • Push button shower taps with the temperature set to ensure you have a nice warm shower
  • Toilet and sink with push button hot and cold taps
  • A large mirror with a shelf
  • Several hooks on the wall to hang towels or clothes
  • Small bench
  • Auto lights – activated by movement
  • Auto extractor fan – activated by movement
  • Small bin
  • Nappy bags
  • Small step for little children to reach the sink
  • Squeeze mop (just in case you need it)
  • Frosted windows with small opener at the top.

The kitchenettes

There are two shared kitchenettes in the facilities block available for all guests to use. You can also use the charging lockers here for free to plug in your devices during your stay.

The kitchenettes have a shared fridge, microwave, toaster, kettle, washing up sink and dish soap, a large bin and plenty of cupboard space

It’s worth noting that there is no hob or oven for ‘proper’ cooking. You can bring or hire a camp stove, use the barbecues and fire pit or get food out locally.

Play time

Kids love to spend time in the huge 10m sandpit in the small play area, safely within sight of the Cookout Canopies. Have a game of table tennis table in the Camper’s Barn or kick a ball around the playing field, which is great for rounders, football and sports at the top of the pod field. You might find some other fun spaces to play and explore on a walk along the river and around our smallholding!

Little extras

We can provide local lumpwood charcoal, firewood packs, breakfast packs and other extras to make things easier. You can also hire camping equipment packs if you don’t have your own. These include a stove, crockery, cutlery, pans and utensils – everything you might need to cook for a family.

Enjoy a pizza party and hire our wood fired pizza oven which can cook delicious home made pizzas in a couple of minutes. We provide the utensils, wood and intruction, you bring the ingredients.

If you fancy early check in at 12 noon, or late check out at 5pm, to help you make the most of your stay, do get in touch to find out availability.

  • A  ‘rainy day’ campers barn where guests can escape poor weather, have a meal, plan the day and play table tennis. There is also a clothes airer for drying wet gear after a day on the beach.
  • Each pod has a parking space in the pod field near the facilities block.
  • There is a second large fire pit if you want your own space in the top of the stargazing field. The stars are definitely best seen from here!

“We had such a brilliant week staying at Higher Culloden farm & were sad to leave! Spencer and India are so welcoming relaxed and helpful and make the stay really lovely. The pods are great – simple but good space, lots of storage and warm. We stayed with our two little ones (age 1 and 3) and they loved it – especially feeding the pigs, rabbits, chickens and ducks in the morning.”
