The Rising Sun, Altarnun

The Rising Sun is our local, good food in a relaxed 16th Century moorland inn. They serve a great selection of local ales too so if you fancy trying one or two why not take the country route and walk to the pub?  The round trip is about 50 minutes along tracks and trails and over the hills, take a torch if it’s an evening trip!

Hilltop Farm Shop, Camelford

The Hilltop Farm Shop is a really lovely spot to relax a while and grab a bite to eat. They serve fantastic local produce, beautifully cooked. You can stock up on delicious bites to bring back to Ekopod too!  Be warned, the Farm Shop is closed on Sundays.

Jamaica Inn, Bodmin

The famed Jamaica Inn is well worth a visit during your Ekopod stay. Made famous by Daphne Du Maurier’s book of the same name, this historic moorland pub oozes charm and atmosphere. Not to mention it’s dog friendly and there’s a great play area for the kids – something for everyone!
