The Landpods at Wildflower Wood
Secluded in ‘Poldark country', a mere mile from the sea, Beersheba Farm, St. Ives, enjoys a peaceful hilltop location that attracts walkers, nature-lovers, and beach babies alike.
Ideal for couples and families, you'll find the innovative, off-grid Landpods secluded in the farm's own Wildflower Wood, each one sleeping up to five guests. One Landpod is dog-friendly, meaning nobody has to miss out on all that fresh air and holiday fun!
Named after well-known local landmarks, the wood-framed Gwithian, Godrevy and Towans each feature a toasty insulated roof, comfy carpets, and sealed windows, keeping you deliciously cosy throughout your stay - whatever the weather!
Inside each pod, you'll find two cosy, bunk-style double beds with foam mattresses, and a comfy upholstered bench that transforms into an extra single if needed.
LED lighting is provided for that irresistibly soft evening glow, and there are handy USB charging points inside your pod, too. But the very best feature has to be the wondrous lift-up roof, which reveals the sunrise, sunset, and the twinkling stars in all their breathtaking glory.
(Not to mention the spectacular views through the trees, towards the sparkling sea and sandy beaches of St. Ives Bay - all the way to Godrevy Lighthouse - cited as the inspiration for Virginia Woolf's To the Lighthouse).
As if all that wasn't enough, there's a covered outdoor kitchen and firepit to help you whip up al fresco feasts. Each Landpod comes with its own picnic table and benches, and you'll also have a private washroom with a sink and a waterless, state-of-the-art Swedish loo.
Meanwhile, generous shared facilities include a fridge and a washing-up sink, and refreshing hot water showers with eco-friendly toiletries provided. You've also got the option of packing lighter than light, with bedding and kitchen equipment hire available throughout your stay.
Oh, and just in case you don't feel like cooking at all, the laid-back Una Kitchen Restaurant is an easy walk away!
Fancy exploring slightly further afield? There are plenty of beaches to test out your surfing (or lazing!) skills on, from the blue-flag Carbis Bay, to half a dozen more in Hayle and St. Ives.
There's also a wealth of dedicated cycle routes, while if you prefer a seaside ramble, the picturesque South West Coast Path, or St. Michael's Way promises scenery you'll want to keep whipping out your phone to capture. You're also within easy reach of some of Cornwall's best attractions, including the Eden Project, and Tate St. Ives.
Staying on site, families will enjoy pony trekking around the farm, and there are some gentle, soul-soothing woodland walks to get wonderfully lost in, too.
In short, if you're looking to switch off from everyday life - not to mention switching off the TV and laptop! - your Landpod is sure to become a brand-new holiday sanctuary.
