  • "This was our second time staying here, and we'll definitely be back!"

    The glamping pod is modern and beautifully decorated, with a lot of attention to detail. You'll have everything you possibly need for your vacation. While on the smaller side, the cabin is full of very smart solutions, you have a fully functioning kitchen, a great shower, a comfy bed, wifi, and amazing views. There's a fireplace outside where we had bonfires and grilled each time we stayed here. Derek and Helen are fantastic hosts, we can't wait to come back again. 100% recommended!

    Hi Judit, it was great to see you again. Thanks for coming back, and for your lovely review. We are thrilled that you had a great return visit to Cornwall and enjoyed your stay with us. We look forward to welcoming you back next time! All the best, Derek and Helen Property Owner

About the location


Launceston 8 miles; Boscastle 14 miles; Port Isaac 18 miles.

A very pretty village on the edge of Bodmin Moor, located close to the A30, making it the perfect base from which to tour the many visitor attractions within easy reach. Altarnun itself boasts quaint stone cottages, a stream running through the village, a lovely old church, and a traditional country pub. After a long day exploring the stunning countryside around Bodmin Moor this is an ideal place in which to unwind. Explore four unique villages, Boscastle, Tintagel, Port Isaac and Crackington Haven, each situated along the dramatic unspoiled coastline of North Cornwall. Port Isaac, a filming location in Doc Martin, is a busy port where you can still watch the fishermen hard at work. Walking and cycling are popular activities in this area and there are beautiful churches and historic buildings to discover. Venture a little further afield and walk the high tors of Bodmin Moor, surf the waves of the North Cornish coast, sample the delights of the Eden Project or take a cruise from Truro down the misty reaches of the River Fal to Falmouth. There's something for everyone nearby, from moors and river valleys to beaches and harbours, stately homes and museums to potteries and galleries.
