The Roundhouse is genuinely unique; tranquility, the stars, the romance of sleeping in an Iron Age Roundhouse. And then some.

The Roundhouse is genuinely unique; tranquility, the stars, the romance of sleeping in an Iron Age Roundhouse. Bodrifty Farm is a wonderful place to escape the hustle and bustle of modern life and to capture the spirit of a distant time, in significant comfort. Tell stories by the open fire and then spend a peaceful night tucked up in Egyptian cotton sheets, under a duck-down duvet in your handmade four-poster bed with flowers woven into the willow headboard. Seize the once in a lifetime opportunity to sleep in ancient grandeur and wake to the sound of birdsong and the wind swishing through the trees. You will have exclusive use of the The Treehouse during your stay at the Roundhouse, which has a kitchen where you can prepare a feast with edible flowers from the Bodrifty organic market garden – or perhaps fresh-that-day Cornish crab, landed locally in Newlyn. After bathing and breakfast get ready to stroll across the moors, scattered with ancient monuments, to one of the many stunning beaches nearby.

Our guests say...

"This was a gift for my parents, and they couldn't have been happier - the roundhouse was beautiful and unusual, and the setting fantastic. The owners couldn't have been nicer, making sure there was a fire lit before they arrived, and making them feel so welcome. They loved it!"



"Loved it still buzzing from it. We long for a simpler life without the nonsense of modern living that we all have to deal with. We've returned feeling energised and reconnected with our roots."



"Our stay was the most amazing, chilling experience we've had. Not only being away from everything, and I mean everything including light pollution at night, but sharing our space with nature and history. We were a couple of fields away from the most amazing remains of an iron age settlement, untouched and on the top of the moors, leaving you with the eerie feeling of being in another time. The best thing was the peace, quiet and the history. Nothing bad at all."



"We had a wonderful time. The bed was amazing, the cooking and washing facilities were as good as  4 or 5 star hotel. Everything was excellent and the worst thing was having to leave."



"It was perfect. My girlfriend and I really enjoyed our stay in the Roundhouse.  We were delighted to see the facilities in the adjoining 'Treehouse' hut (bathroom/kitchen/living room). The Bodrifty Farm/Roundhouse owner - Penny - made us feel very welcome, and provided us with fresh herbs and vegetables, as well as the soya milk we specifically requested! The Roundhouse was a very atmospheric and beautiful place in which to sleep. The big, cosy 4 poster bed was delightful - especially as the nights were quite chilly. The fire pit also lent to the atmosphere, and I enjoyed the challenge of keeping the fire alive and warming up the space. All guidance leading up to the stay was great. The welcome pack, the directions, everything really!"



"Loved it, the setting was beautiful the hosts very friendly. Really different experience, fresh flowers and wine in the fridge was a really nice touch"



"The roundhouse was an amazing experience, in a great location. A gorgeous, comfortable bed, great fire-pit and amazing starry skyline at night"



"Loved it, really didn't want to return to the real world! The wonderful wonderful bed and real fire. Long walks to superb pubs.The seclusion, mainly rabbits and foxes for company"



"It was fun and adventurous at the same time. Good weather a huge advantage on this break as a trip to the bathroom at 3am was a magical experience with the stars you could see as there is no light pollution. Loved lighting the fire and seeing the smoke appear through the thatch."



"thoroughly enjoyed our stay, it was very magical and incredibly relaxing"



We love to stay in odd, eccentric or historic buildings and have previously been in castles, Gothick summerhouses, towers, fairytale cottages and, most recently, a windmill. But we have never, ever, EVER stayed in a place as magical as The Roundhouse.



It's one thing to have the skill and knowledge, but I think it was imagination and a vision that really built the Roundhouse. That's what made our stay special, to be an appreciative part of someone's dream, who re-tied the knot between us and our country's history.


Lynne & Mark

The roundhouse is INCREDIBLE. Location was perfect. High on the moors, very private but close enough to civilisation and, very importantly for us, surf. Authentic, raw, natural and filled with a very welcoming 'energy'... The BED. Oh, the bed. What a bloody lovely bed.
