Truly a work of art, the circular cob and cordwood roundhouse is an incredible structure for up to five people, set in a traditional West Country orchard where life drifts by at a peaceful pace. The interior is luxurious and superbly detailed. Glass diamonds made from gin bottles catch the light, sheepskins are from Plan-it Earth’s own sheep, and all other materials are wholly natural. For night time, there’s a wood-burning stove and the roof is made for stargazing. Outside, the living turf roof insulates (and grows forget-me-nots). The orchard is an idyllic spot for the roundhouse: apples, pears and currants flourish here, and hedges run alongside, producing hazel and walnuts, wild berries and elderflower, food for birds and foraging humans. You even have your own garden with firepit within the orchard, and a composting loo and wood-fired shower.
Plan-it Earth creates an environment where the outdoors can bring joy into people's lives: gazing up at the stars, listening to birdsong, building a campfire or foraging for wild food and herbal remedies... Plan-it Earth is all about feeling a connection to nature, and gaining new experiences and skills to take away with you.
There’s so much knowledge, creativity and love packed into the three-and-a-half acres of Plan-it Earth – it’s a green experience just being here, as David and Rachel love sharing their part of Cornwall. Plan-it Earth is an amazingly resourceful place, and one that’s hard to leave without acquiring new knowledge. Rural skill workshops flow together into holistic ‘stories’ from source to finish: you could start by shearing a sheep, and learn all about natural plant dyes, weaving, spinning and knitting wool into clothes. Or just enjoy the surrounding footpaths and ancient sites, or the golden sandy beaches just minutes away.
As guests in the roundhouse you will be making a contribution to the local economy, helping to look after the environment, and picking up a new perspective on life to take home. We’re sure you’ll be back...
