Not Your Usual Campsite!

Now the sun has decided to (hopefully!) make a permanent appearance, you might be thinking of ways in which you can make the most of it. The definition of camping has had a massive overhaul in recent years, and sometimes pitching a tent in a field just doesn’t cut it! We have compiled the best camping alternatives we could find to give your time away that little something extra. 


Best For Glamping: Elm Farm is a little gem tucked away between two beautiful seaside towns, Porthtowan and Portreath. If you are looking for a natural camping experience with a touch of luxury, then Elm Farm’s Bell tents are a perfect getaway. Each tent is furnished with everything you need; a comfy king size bed, sun loungers, crockery, cutlery, a gas hob and kettle and even a brazier fashioned out of a recycled washing machine drum. Solar powered fairy lights and plenty of candles create the cosiest atmosphere when the sun starts to set. A short walk from the camping field takes you to the bike barn, where you can hire a bike and cycle the coast to coast trail, why not pack a picnic?! Hot showers will help you to wake up, and the cafe offers a cooked breakfast for those days you don’t fancy making your own.
