We left the bright lights of London for the big skies of Cornwall in 2005 and Polgreen Glamping was born in the summer of 2009.
Having both fallen in love with the North coast of Cornwall on childhood holidays we have always returned for a yearly beach escape as adults. When the chance to move to the countryside came up we knew that Cornwall would become our home. Our property search was easy, Polgreen Farm was the first place we viewed and we were charmed - gorgeous countryside and endless nearby beaches!
Our time in Cornwall has been an adventure. Our small London garden has been replaced with a 40 acre farm and our nearest neighbours are now fish, sheep and pigs! Our 'normal' jobs were meagre preparation for becoming fish farmers, however we like to think we are up for a challenge and have loved giving the good life a real go. Farming nowadays demands resourcefulness and Polgreen Glamping is one of the diversification projects that make it possible for us to live and work (and play) at Polgreen.
Our Philosophy... We love this special place and are determined to preserve and enhance it in everything we do. We are only open for a limited time every summer as the area is protected from development (out of our open season you can experience some Polgreen Glamping bliss with our BORROW A BELL tent service). The site structures are all temporary and we ask everyone to treat the environment sensitively so that when the campsite disappears at the end of the summer it does just that, disappear. This is not the bright lights of the city; all after-dark lighting comes from solar lights, wind up lanterns and candles. Cooking is BBQ or gas stove style and the only heating comes from the sun or a fire brazier outside your tent. We have temporary compost toilets that are stylish and sustainable and all our water is (filtered) spring bore hole water.
We love this special place and hope that you'll love it too.
