Glamping at Cornish Tipi Holidays in St Kew Cornwall you can wake up to the sound of birdsong and go swimming before breakfast in the clear water of a secluded lake. Cook your bacon and eggs over an open fire while you plan your day, or just laze it away in the peace and quiet of your own personal tipi. You can always go fishing tomorrow, and walk along the cliffs the day after that. Our site at Tregildrans Quarry is unique. A woodland valley folded around a clear, spring-fed lake created from the old Tregildrans Quarry. Our tipis are dotted about this secret 16 acres clothed in ferns and bluebells, oak and meadowsweet. Undisturbed by modern agrochemicals and herbicides the natural ecosystem has flourished, providing a thriving habitat for flowers and butterflies, birds and mammals.
Staying in our canvas tipis with family or friends, living close to the earth and the rhythm of nature, is an extraordinary experience. It’s a mixture of old fashioned camping in a beautiful place, with a very modern desire to be more environmentally friendly than just about any other holiday could be. This is the place to explore the landscape of your imagination, the place of your childhood dreams, where you first found adventure, where fish splash in the lake at dawn and sparks rise from your campfire at dusk.
OUR TIPIS AND BELL TENTS
We have 20 authentic style North American tipis made of cotton canvas on a framework of locally sourced wooden lodge poles reaching up to more than 18 feet high, giving you a generous living area. Compared to an ordinary tent, a tipi interior gives you an amazing sense of space and light. Our tipis are arranged sympathetically around the valley so that we can offer a sense of both privacy and community to groups of all sizes.
You have a choice of
- Medium (sleeps 2-3 if one is a young child)
- Large (sleeps up to 6)
- Extra large (sleeps 6-9 if some are young children)
These can be booked either in the community space of the Village Field, where you will have neighbours, or in your own clearing with a little more seclusion on a Private Site. We also have three double Private Sites where friends and family can book two tipis or bell tents together.
Larger groups often book several tipis grouped together in a Village Field setting, or book part or all of the entire site for courses, workshops or weddings (see weddings & honeymoons and events/groups).
We’ve also got 2 spacious bell tents on lovely Private Sites.
All the tipis & bell tents are equipped with the basics you might need for your visit including custom-made groundsheets, warm Turkish rugs and candle lanterns.
You’ll get your own camp stove and cool box. We also provide kitchen essentials from teaspoons to teapot – with a full inventory sent to you on completion of your booking. And of course you’ll be welcome to use our pots and pans on your outside fire.
