Hercules - Wagon in Cornwall, United Kingdom

Spring Park

Not suitable for children

Pets welcome

Pets may be brought at a surcharge of £20. We’re sorry children cannot be accomodated.

Discover an eclectic mix of antique and vintage, paired with a wood fired hot tub, at this van built on a 1930s Showman’s trailer

As you’d expect, Hercules is the largest of the four living wagons at Spring Park, and is completely self-contained with a cabin style bedroom and large shower room behind a reclaimed carriage door. The original English Rose kitchen has been repainted to reflect the period feel, and 1940’s cinema seats and a little built-in table make for a romantic meal with all the glamour of the era. A curved roof and painted oak beams frame your sturdy living space, which Kitty and Paddy have filled with little vintage trinkets, adding their own personal touch to the place. Hercules has his own quiet patch of mixed woodland and there’s a fire pit just outside where you can either cook an evening meal or just sit back in the evening and watch the stars.

Along with the books and games inside, you’ll also find a hamper for you to pack up a picnic and go off exploring the area, maybe down to the beach for surfing, walking across Dartmoor or wandering through the local villages and visiting the markets. 

Our guests say...

Just loved our stay at hurcules. Do not have a bad word to say about any of it, loved having a working kitchen and bathroom with hot shower and toilet unlike other glamping places we have been to. Everything from the welcome wine and cake to the up-cycled furniture made it an unusual but amazing place to stay. We will definitely be back.

It was wonderful! Amazing little wagon in the woods, I thought the decor was very unique and had lots of well thought out little touches. It didn't even matter it rained the whole time because inside the Wagon was so lovely!

We had the most relaxing time. Exactly what we needed after a very busy, travel filled working week. We stayed Friday and Saturday night and despite the other rentals all being occupied, it was quiet and peaceful. Hercules itself is a beautiful mix of vintage charm and quirky fun. We loved the bathroom door! We were greeted shortly after arriving then left to our own devices with a lovely bottle of wine and some cherry bakewell! Perfect hosts, perfect accommodation, perfect weekend.

Joanne

It was lovely! Hercules is very comfortable, cozy and feels completely isolated in its own little glade. Paddy was very welcoming and there was a lovely bottle of wine and some biscuits waiting for us when we arrived. We had relaxing evenings in and spent the Saturday having a lovely walk and a drink in the pub. We'd definitely stay again!

Charlene

We had a lovely stay-hercules is a lovely wagon with all the essentials (the shower is really good!) we loved having breakfast in our private woodland and chilling in the wagon at night. We stayed at spring Park before in the duchess - highly recommend it to others it's super :) hope to be back again next year!

Janet

We had the most fantastic time at Spring Park. Hercules was everything we could've imagined he was. Stunning to see and so so cozy inside. Paddy and Kitty have put so much effort into everything, from the gorgeous crockery to the amazing views from every window. Paddy showed us around the rest of the site and oh my goodness! There are 5 other stunning reasons to return to Spring Park.

Our stay was at the end of a lovely week away in Cornwall that we had been staying in yurts. The Luxury (with a capital L) of Hercules was incredible. The photographs really don't do this place justice. We arrived in sunshine and immediately cracked open a beer to appreciate the sunlight glinting through the Ash to the bluebells below, while the dogs bounded about and were greeted by Brook and Peggy. The inside of Hercules is surprisingly big, beautifully furnished and so well though out. A warm and powerful shower with lots of space. We were comfortable, warm, dry (it lashed it down the next day) and dreamt of living the showman's lifestyle. The small details really are wonderful, from matching plates and decorations to train doors and theatre seats...just wonderful! The dogs were very pleased. So were we! Merlot says that he'll write to his holiday romance girlfriend, Peggy! :-)

Fantastic 2 night stay in this delightful wagon! We were gob smacked by the attention to detail and vintage feel of the interior and also the lovely secluded feel.

A lovely mid-week get away at a rather special place. Bright sunshine through the spring woods, a warm and lovely hidy hole away from the rat race. Cake and Wine waiting on arrivial.

Dom

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in the unique and quirky Hercules. Shabby chic at its "chic-est"! We were happy with the secluded location, no wireless and no TV! Don't change, just what was needed, true escapism. Mobiles off

Barry

This place was everything we wanted and more!!!! My wife and I was looking for a quiet quirky place to spend her birthday weekend and I decided to suprise her with this place and she was made up. Friendly and polite hosts to welcome you on arrival with all the information you need for your stay, they are also on site for assistance if needed. All in all we left really relaxed and content after our mini break/adventure and have already been talking of our return one day............

Rossi

"We had a wonderful Christmas break at spring park. We stayed in the beautiful Hercules cabin, with our own little forest. Kitty and paddy were so welcoming and we even had our own Christmas tree and decorations! It was perfect for us as it was very dog friendly too. We will be going back again and again!"

24/12/2014

Julia

"It was a magnificent break from the monotony of the working life. The three nights were filled with fine food, courtesy of the highly recommended Springer Spaniel pub and yours truly, wine, fire and the Scrabble Championship of Rezare. Coming home to the warm and welcoming embrace of Hercules after days spent by the Atlantic Ocean was perfect. A real experience and one I hope to repeat many times in the future"

Annie

"Our trip was truly magical. From time of booking through to leaving, the owners touched based in the right ways. Upon arrival, the wagon was just perfect, even through to the complimentary cake, wine and marshmallows! We were so taken a back by their generosity. The location was perfect for venturing the Cornish coast and there were so many surreal places to visit nearby. The wagon was in a great secluded spot so the dogs could run around how they pleased! We loved every minute and cant wait to return!"'

13/07/2014

Laura

"We stayed in Hercules, and could not believe how beautiful it was. The Wagon had everything you could need and it felt so homely. Loved the privacy of our own little woodland and outdoor fire."

Activities

At Spring Park

Spring Park is a peaceful spot where you could easily spend your days birdwatching and reading in your wagon, and your nights stargazing and sitting around the campfire.

Rainy days

If you fancy getting out and about, there are plenty of options when the weather's not quite up to scratch. Visit Dingles Heritage Fairground or a National Trust property such as Cotele House. The Eden Project is always popular as are the Lost Gardens of Heligan.

Nearby Towns and Villages

Tavistock, for the famous Tavistock pannier market

Lostwithiel, for lovely antiques

Fowey, a pretty waterside village

Looe

Tintagel

Boscastle

Outdoor & Active

There are plenty of ways to get active in the area - cycle the camel trail, or go walking on Dartmoor or Bodmin Moor. There are also lovely beaches with good surfing on both the North and South coasts, some of which are dog friendly.

Food & Drink

At Spring Park

All of the wagons, the tabernacle and the cabin have their own fully equipped kitchens for you to cook yourself a feast in the evenings. 

Local shops

The nearest shop is about three miles away in Stoke Climsland, or for more variety there are plenty of shops including a supermarket in Launceston, 5 miles away. Alternatively, groceries can be ordered or collected for you by prior arrangement - speak to Kitty before you arrive.

Pubs & Restaurants

Within walking distance, The Springer Spaniel pub is very nice and offers good quality food.

Or a little further down the lanes (and well worth the 3 mile drive) The Royal has lovely pub food in a picture perfect setting.

Meet your hosts

Meet Kitty & Paddy

Kitty and Paddy have recently taken over Spring Park with Kitty's parents Peter and Di, and they still can’t quite believe what a beautiful place they've ended up in! They used to run two little boutiques on Falmouth's Old High Street selling homewares, vintage finds and handmade dresses, and loves anything old or vintage...

Kitty has now happily found the perfect home for all her vintage treasures, hidden throughout the wagons at Spring park, and has lots of plans for trips out to the flea markets and villages to find more. Kitty and Paddy can't wait to explore the area a bit more (Kitty grew up here so will be rediscovering old haunts) and their two dogs Brook and Peggy can’t believe their luck at moving into such a lovely home in the countryside!

Wildlife & Environment

In a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and with an Site of Special Scientific Interest nearby, you'll be absolutely spoiled when it comes to wildlife spotting. If you sit outside by the fire pit, you'll probably see rabbits, birds and bats, and even deer have been spotted wandering across the gardens.

Getting there

Spring Park, Rezare, Launceston, Cornwall, PL15 9NX

By train

The nearest mainline station is 15 miles away at Saltash. Pick ups are possible from here by prior arrangement for an additional charge of £25.

By bus

The nearest bus stop is in Treburley, an easy ½ mile walk from Spring Park.

By car

From the A30 at Launceston

1. Follow signs for the A388 Callington. Make sure you leave the A30 at the junction sign posted Callington keep following Callington signs until you reach the A388. If you are arriving from Exeter you'll have to go around a roundabout which will take you back on to the A30, travelling in the opposite direction. Stay on the A388 for about 4 miles until you see a pub called The Springer Spaniel.

2. Turn left here (signposted Rezare). Be careful as there are two turnings - you need to make sure you take the first one. Drive up the narrow road for about 1/2 a mile until you reach the village of Rezare.

3. At Rezare, take the first left (here you'll see a sign saying unsuitable for wide vehicles) and after 30m bear left again on to another narrow road. Follow this road for about 100m and you will see the first entrance signposted Duke. This is also where you'll park for Maiden and Wisteria Cottage.

If you're going to Hercules, St Agnes, The Old Potting Shed or Pip and Pip's Cabin, keep driving past the gate and go around the corner. Carry on a little further down the road, and on your left you'll see the second entrance, signposted Spring Park. Drive past the house and signs will direct to your parking spaces.

If you are arriving from the South ( A38, Plymouth, Liskeard and St Austell)

Follow the signs for Callington. When you get there, continue on the A388 following signs for Launceston. About 5½ miles after Callington you'll get into Treburley, where you need to take the second exit opposite The Springer Spaniel Pub, signposted Rezare (be careful here - there are two turnings very close together and you need to make sure you take the second one!). Drive up the narrow road for about ½ mile until you reach the village of Rezare.

From here follow the directions above from number 3.

Booking Terms

Canopy & Stars low price promise

 
Book with us in confidence knowing you won’t find that place cheaper elsewhere. All of the prices we display are set and matched by our Owners. (In this world of foreign currency, we do have to say 'subject to exchange rates' for some of our European places.)

What does ‘from price’ mean?

 
Our ‘from price’ is based on a four night stay in low season and designed to help you to compare different prices across our collection. Some of our Owners vary their nightly rates and check in days throughout the year, so it may differ from the rate quoted below the calendar. It is quite common (although by no means universal) for places to charge a little more in peak season or for shorter stays, to cover changeover costs. Consider booking longer stays during the cooler months if you’re looking for the lowest nightly rates.

2.2 Amendments and cancellations can only be accepted in accordance with the booking conditions of the Owner of your Arrangements. The Owner may charge the cancellation or amendment charges shown in their booking conditions (which may be as much as 100% of the cost of the Arrangements and will normally increase closer to the date of departure). The Owner may charge cancellation or amendment charges in accordance with its own booking conditions, however for the sake of convenience only, we have outlined the Owner’s charges at clause 2.3 and 2.4 below. Please note that these are the Owner’s own cancellation and amendments charges, not Canopy & Stars’, and therefore the Owner may vary their charges as they wish, without notice to us. The correct charges will be notified to you at the time of your cancellation or amendments.

2.3.1 Cancellation by you at any time will result in your deposit being forfeited, as all deposits are non-refundable.

We will also liaise between you and the Owner in relation to any alternative Booking offered by the Owner but we will have no further liability to you.

 

4. Complaints

Because the contract for your Booking is between you and the Owner, any queries or concerns should be addressed to them. In the event that you have any complaint about your stay, please notify the Owner as soon as possible. If you don’t follow this procedure there will be less opportunity for the Owner to investigate and resolve your complaint and so make your stay as enjoyable as possible. Delays may also mean that amount of compensation you may be entitled to may be reduced. Whether or not your complaint is dealt with satisfactorily, please also contact us as we appreciate all feedback. It’s important to us and the Owner to know that you’ve enjoyed your stay or if anything could have been improved.

 

5. Pricing

Canopy & Stars reserve the right to amend advertised prices at any time on behalf of the Owner. We also reserve the right to correct errors in both advertised and confirmed prices.Special note: changes and errors sometimes occur.

 

6. Information & Accuracy

The information and prices shown on this website are varied from time to time and may change between the time you first view a property and make a Booking. You should check that all the details are as you expect prior to making a Booking. It is always possible that, despite our best efforts, some of the properties (including the features and extras available) may be incorrectly described and/or priced. If we discover this is the case after you have made a Booking, we reserve the right to contact you with details of the correct information and/or pricing and will give you the option to:

(1) proceed with the Booking based on the correct information and/or pricing, which may require the payment of an additional amount by you;

OR

(2) subject to availability, change your booking dates to dates when the pricing can be honoured ad so no additional charge to you. In the event that a lower price can be offered for alternative dates then the difference would be refunded;

OR

(3) cancel the Booking. If we do not receive your instructions within 5 days of contacting you, we reserve the right to cancel your Booking without liability to you.

 

7. Our Responsibility for your Booking

Your contract is with the Owner and its booking conditions apply. As Agent, we accept no responsibility for the actual provision of the Booking. Our responsibilities are limited to making the Booking in accordance with your instructions and acting properly in accordance with our legal duties as an Agent. We accept no responsibility for any information about the Booking that we pass on to you in good faith. However, in the event that we are found liable to you on any basis whatsoever, our maximum liability to you is limited to twice the cost of your Booking (or the appropriate proportion of this if not everyone on the Booking is affected). We do not exclude or limit any liability for death or personal injury that arises as a result of our negligence or that of any of our employees whilst acting in the course of their employment.

 

8. Pets

Not all properties accept pets. If you wish to take your pet on holiday, please advise us before booking and we can check whether pets are accepted at the property. You must obtain the prior consent of the Owner before taking any pets to the property. A nightly charge may be made by the Owner for each pet and additional terms may apply.

 

9. VAT

Many of the Owners of properties in the Canopy & Stars portfolio are not registered for VAT in which case no tax is payable. Where VAT is payable, the tax is included in the advertised holiday rental price.

 

10. Visa, passport and health requirements.

Unless you tell us otherwise, we assume that all members of your party are British citizens who hold or will hold full British passports valid for the entire duration of the Arrangements you chose to purchase. Information on visa, passport and health requirements, where given and applicable, is so given on this basis. Requirements may change and you are therefore strongly recommended to check the up to date position with the Owner of the Booking, Passport Office, appropriate embassy or consulate or your doctor as applicable in good time before the commencement of your holiday.

 

11. Insurance

You are strongly recommended to take out personal travel insurance for all members of your party. It is your responsibility to ensure that the insurance you purchase is adequate and appropriate for your particular needs. Please read your policy details and take them with you on holiday.

 

12. Special requests

If you have any special requests (for example dietary requirements, cots or room location), please let us know at the time of booking. We will pass on all such requests to the Owner, but unfortunately, we can't guarantee that they will be met and we will have no liability to you if they are not.

 

13. Group Bookings

Not all Owners accept Bookings for a single sex group (for example, a stag or hen party). Guests wanting to make such a Booking should check with us beforehand to enable us to check whether the Owner is prepared to accept the Booking. We will then advise you accordingly. In event that an Owner does not accept this type of Booking then it is with regret, that the Booking may be cancelled and cancellation fees may apply. It is the Guest’s responsibility to enquire with Canopy & Stars and/or check on our website beforehand to make sure that this type of booking is permitted.

 

14. Maximum Numbers

Please note that except by prior arrangement confirmed in writing, only the number of persons specified on a booking confirmation may occupy  a property. Most owners reserve the right to refuse admittance or revoke a booking if this condition is not observed and you are unlikely to receive any refund.

 

15. Your Responsibilities

Please note that you have a contract with the Owner of the property. As such you are under a responsibility to behave in a proper, appropriate and legal manner whilst staying at the property with due respect to the Owner, the Property and other guests and their property. You are responsible for informing the Owner of any losses or damage to the property as soon as possible. Please note that you will be liable to pay the Owner for any losses or damage to the property caused by you or a member of your party (except reasonable wear and tear). Some Owners will also require damage deposits. You must also leave the property by the check-out time specified on your booking. If any guest behaves inappropriately or improperly (of which the Owner will be the final judge on their Property), or illegally, the Owner reserves the right to ask the guest and their party (at their discretion) to leave the Property before the end of the holiday period and/or refuse any future bookings from you.  Any refund for so doing will be at the entire discretion of the Owner.
