Luxury bell tents and back-to-nature cabins provide family accommodation at Tre-End Glamping, a new, eco-friendly site in rural Cornwall. It’s only 15 minutes’ drive from the extraordinary biospheres of the Eden Project and the Lost Gardens of Heligan and less than half an hour from either coast, but it also seems a million miles from 21st century stress.
The Tre-End bell tents are super-comfortable with their roomy double beds, log burners, seating and rugs. Guests can bring camp beds for any children and they have exclusive use of a composting loo and gas-powered shower.
The cabins, set within a small orchard, also have a comfy king sized bed and a bunk bed each.
They are all within walking distance of pubs and a shop.
Owner Ben Coker, an Airbnb ‘Superhost’, lives on site and has developed it green and off grid. Already an award winner for its eco-credentials, the site has a scullery with drinking water, a well which supplies the showers, solar lighting, picnic tables and barbecues. Swedish log candles are on sale.
Ben says: “The tents and cabins have plenty of space around them so people can be private, but there’s also a communal firepit and seating so they socialise together if they wish.”
