If you love the idea of camping but don’t want to go without the comforts of home, glamping could be for you, and where better to bring together nature and luxury than Cornwall? With its striking blue waters, breathtaking beaches, wild moors and unspoiled countryside, it’s the perfect destination to relax and disconnect from your worries. To inspire your next glamping trip, we’ve put together our top ten glamping spots in Cornwall…
Tucked away on the edge of Bodmin Moor in 5 acres of wildflower meadows and fairytale woodland, Ekopod offers a dreamy rural escape. This area is known locally as “The Peaceful Valley”, and for good reason! There is no better place to wave goodbye to the hustle and bustle of day-to-day life. The private location makes it easy to switch off and unwind yet is still close to all that North Cornwall has to offer.
Guests can choose between geodomes or boutique tents. There is no electricity or wi-fi so visitors can enjoy an authentic camping experience whilst still indulging in touches of luxury, like sumptuous beds and cosy woodburners. With family tents as well as romantic couple pods and dog friendly options, there is something for everyone no matter what kind of break you’re after.
