Escape to a simpler life with Loretta and Roger

Formerly known as Feather Down Looe Farm, Dennis family have farmed Gwel Teg in this idyllic part of Cornwall for over 35 years. Their speciality is dairy farming with 400 cows including Holsteins and British Blues. There are also have sheep who lamb in spring. They also grow barley and fatten up cattle for beef. Your canvas hideaways are on the edge of the farm, overlooking a meadow, the ideal spot for a family holiday in Cornwall.

The best of Cornwall on your doorstep

You couldn’t be better placed to enjoy a family holiday in Cornwall, the county where we all want to holiday nowadays. Looe and its beaches and boat trips are a short drive away. Further along the coast is idyllic Fowey with its estuary and harbour. Within easy reach is the Eden Project, nestled in a huge crater with biomes housing the largest rainforest in captivity, stunning plants and exhibitions, which all serve as a backdrop to their striking gardens, thrilling zip-wire and summer concerts.

What to do at Gwel Teg Farm

As well as learning more about how milk is produced, the farm welcomes new lambs every spring - you are welcome to help out with the bottle feeding. There is plenty of space on the farm for youngsters to play and you can still keep an eye on them from the comfort of your veranda. There is one hot tub available to hire if you fancy luxuriating with a soak. The honesty shop has more than enough in it for you to cook up a stew on before you retire to your delicious Feather Down beds.

Going without electricity is our greatest luxury

Ask the farmer

The farm tour is a must if it’s on offer. But you don’t wait till then. The farmer will be delighted to tell you more about what goes on at the farm at any time.

The farm shop

It’s great for the basics and usually even better for local produce and low food miles. And every Feather Down farm shop operates on an honesty basis.

3rd time doing this, and each time a different Featherdown site; this one the first time for about 10 years! Hot showers in the tent, and a wood burning stove that has an integrated oven, make a huge positive difference. Loved it - as we did each of the previous 2 times.

We have stayed in a few Featherdown sites around the UK, and enjoyed them all. Looe had by far the most spectacular views, rolling hills as far as the eye can see. Loretta and Mark were so friendly and accommodating, really adding to the whole experience.

We had an amazing stay with Loretta and Mark who couldn't have been more helpful or accommodating. They clearly want to make sure that every person enjoys their stay to the max. The farm was a real bonus and our children (14 and 12) loved being able to help out and get involved. It is a long time since we experienced customer care to this level. Thank you again!

Would definitely recommend this site. Our host, Loretta was friendly and welcoming and went above and beyond. Everything was very well organised and well run. Everything we needed was very conveniently located and easy to access. The tents were cleaned to perfection and had everything we needed and more. Added bonus was an en-suite bathroom with warm shower which was spotless. We enjoyed having the animals nearby and my daughter got to bottle feed Molly the lamb. A well stocked honesty shop and plenty of wood to use.

We had the most amazing 4 days here, real luxury! The lodge was very roomy and comfortable, the hot tub was fab and right next to the tent. The hosts were incredibly accommodating. It was a truly magical experience for our 3 year old daughter, bottle feeding a lamb, sleeping in a cupboard... fantastic!
