Before You Arrive
What clothing and footwear to pack
We always recommend bringing lots of warm, waterproof clothing that dries easily, plus waterproof footwear. Bring warm layers for the day and especially for night, as it can get chilly – multiple pairs of warm socks are a must.
Wellies or walking boots are absolutely essential. We would recommend bringing a pair of slippers and/or thick socks to wear in your Koyt, as we kindly ask that you do not wear outdoor shoes inside.
Phone supply and phone chargers
There is a charging station in The Barns for electronic devices if necessary. Unfortunately, we cannot be held responsible for any personal items left unattended. We would recommend a digital detox and leaving your phone switched off!
The easiest way to find us is via the Google Maps link for Cabilla Cornwall here or on What3words with ‘romantics.galaxy.budget’. We recommend that you drive to us so you can explore the local area more easily. Plug PL30 4DW into your sat nav and follow the signs – you’ll find us. Or to reach us by train, our nearest station is Bodmin Parkway, where you can arrange for a taxi to bring you here.
During Your Stay
There is ample space outside The Barns for you to park your vehicle.
Checking in and out
Arrival and departure time are set by your event facilitator, please check directly with them for details. Check in at reception at The Barns when you arrive where our Cabilla Host team will be there to meet you. There, you will be given a tour around the site and shown to your Koyt. Please check out in the same way.
We are a cash-free site. You can pay by card or Apple Pay only.
Eating and drinking
Your catering will be coordinated by your event facilitator. Cabilla serve tea and coffee throughout the day and open Daphne’s bar for non-alcoholic mocktails in the evening. There are local farm shops nearby. Plus, there are local shops in Bodmin, just a 20-minute drive away.
Cooking utensils, cutlery and crockery
We have everything that you need on site: pots, pans, plates, cutlery, kettles, the lot!
We have fridges and cupboards for you to store any food. Please bring your own containers to keep food in. We accept no responsibility for Cornish piskies that may move things in the night!
We provide luxury Bramley products in the bathrooms and Koyts.
Bed linen and towels
We provide Egyptian cotton bed linen and Atlantic blankets for guests staying in Koyts. Plus towels for your stay and wild bathing.
Cabilla retreat bookings must pay a minimum 50% deposit to secure their dates in the calendar. This deposit is non refundable.
Private bookings, our cancellation policy offers a 100% refund if you cancel 7 days or more before your stay. A 50% refund will be given if you cancel between 7 days and 48 hours before your stay, while full payment will be taken if you cancel less than 48 hours before you’re due to arrive.
Please get in touch if you would like to book as a group. We organise group stays for wellness, yoga, and corporate groups wishing to restore their mindset in a wild space. We do not accommodate hen or stag parties.
Sadly we cannot accommodate dogs or other pets due to the nature of the ecological restoration we are trying to achieve and livestock on the farm.
Smoking and alcohol
We ask that guests refrain from smoking inside Koyts, communal indoor areas or anywhere that may disturb and hinder the stay of others. We also respectfully ask guests to dispose of cigarette stubs appropriately, so as not to affect our woodland. We don’t have a license to sell alcohol at the moment, but you are welcome to bring your own to drink on site in moderation. We retain the right to ask you to stop drinking if inappropriate behaviour occurs.
