Over the summer season we host our own glampsite in a pretty private meadow on our farm next to the gorgeous North Coast of Cornwall. The site is for private hire as a whole only which means you can enjoy this wonderful place secure in the knowledge that you're only sharing with loved ones. With gorgeous bell tents all kitted out, dining and cooking areas, showers, lavs, and more, all for your own exclusive use it's your chance to escape to the Great British Outdoors in style this Summer. With three belle bell tents it's perfect for a couples gathering, a multi generational getaway or a campout for three families!

your private glampsite
The Private Summer Glampsite is situated in a valley meadow on our farm set between the wonderful North Cornwall coast beach at Mawgan Porth and the pretty Cornish village of St Mawgan. Down an unmarked lane you have the sense of being off the beaten track however you are just minutes away from all the area has to offer. The site meadow is bounded by trees and a shallow stream, it's a haven for wildlife, flora and fauna.
The private site has three large six metre bell tents which are each a canvas palace for a couple or a cosy retreat for up to a family of five (maximum of two adults per bell tent). This means that the site can sleep up to 15 people (six adults) in your own private camp. Sorry, we are a no dogs site. Each of the bell tents have a double with real mattress and a double futon, bedding, bed linen, cosy rugs and tea light chandeliers. Additional single mattress rolls are available for an additional child guest where required. Please note that we do not supply travel cots.
The site also has a tented dining shelter with plenty of seating, a fire pit area (with wood to get you started) and barbecue (with charcoal to get you started) and an outdoor cooking area with gas stove tops (gas provided throughout your stay). There is a kitchen store with kitchenalia, crockery and housekeeping gear and a small fridge / freezer (ice packs) a large cool box and a multi charge point for personal devices. There are two hot showers, two sinks and two compost lavs with toiletries provided. The glampsite is set in a secluded valley meadow with plenty of space to enjoy nature and for the kids to play. All site lighting is from solar lights and cooking is by charcoal or gas. There is no reliable mobile reception on the farm but you can get a signal further up the unmarked lane our farm is on. The pretty inland village is a 10-15 minute walk down a country lane and there are a choice of wonderful beaches from within a few minutes drive or 30 minute stroll.

After 10 years of running a public glampsite we have thought of everything to make your stay as easy as possible. No more packing the kitchen sink, just arrive, settle in and enjoy this special place. It's a wonderful spot to make memories from popping the whistle kettle on for a morning cuppa to the sound of birds, to watching the kids discover grasshoppers while you get the BBQ going, to ending the day stargazing around a campfire with a hot chocolate or wine. You don't need to take our word for it... Over the years of hosting our shared site we were featured in two Cool Camping books and were listed as a top ten family site by The Guardian, we also had a consistent 5 star review rating on the Cool Camping website - you can check out some of our previous guest reviews here.
Our Summer stays (July and August) run for six nights from a Friday (avoiding the notorious Saturday changeover day traffic). On check in day you can arrive any time from 2pm and don't have to leave until midday on your departure day. While we expect everyone to leave the site clean and tidy we allow a day between bookings to give us an extended turnaround time for some deeper cleaning in light of the world we live in.
We will give you a warm welcome when you arrive and then leave you to enjoy your stay. But rest assured we're never too far away if you need anything and we do pop and check the site and do any necessary maintenance during your stay.
