Acorn Camping and Glamping
Acorn Camping and Glamping - an eco-friendly, enchanting hideaway strewn with rare and beautiful foliage, in the heart of the World Heritage Site of Luxulyan Valley, Cornwall.
Whatever the season and whatever the weather, you'll find your perfect holiday hideaway at Acorn Camping and Glamping, a friendly family-run site and growing social enterprise, set in a designated World Heritage Site and featuring lovingly designed, original eco-accommodation with something for everybody.
Biodiversity is encouraged with a wild flower meadow and arboretum, and you'll find painstaking care is taken with the surrounding environment and wildlife to ensure your stay is as fresh and invigorating as the air you'll breathe and the natural woodland sights you'll see.
You won't have to travel to Middle Earth to discover rustic, electricity-free accommodation with a little touch of added magic, with the Hobbit hamlet expertly landscaped to blend with its natural surroundings. Choose from the spacious Hobbit Huts that each sleep up to 4 people, the unique Hobbit Hideaway for two set in the fairytale woodland at Rock Cottage, or the adventure-inspired Hobbit Holes, each sleeping 2 people and set in their very own glade.
The Hobbit Huts, tucked away in their own private nook, are a joy to behold and perfectly furnished with benches and tables. There's a double futon and two ‘sitnsleeps' for when it's time to turn in, and for authentic al fresco dining - and marshmallow toasting! - you'll find a covered outdoor cooking area and a communal firepit. Each Hut features its own shower and washbasin nearby with hot water, and a toilet.
The unique Hobbit Hideaway is the perfect place to escape from everyday life and enjoy authentic outdoor adventure! Discover this beautiful hideaway by following a woodland path through ancient broadleaf woodland, teeming with natural wildlife. Start a campfire for a natural outdoor living experience to remember, full of the warming sounds of crackling timber.
The Hideaway features lime-rendered straw bale walls for an immersive sense of outdoor living, and communal on-site showers, wash basins and toilets are easily accessed.
The Hobbit Holes, expertly constructed with natural timber, are discovered through a pathway along the spinney walk and over a bridge, in a stunning glade that features an arboretum, pond and yoga deck with breathtaking views over the woodland. Each one features a comfy double bed, table and two chairs, kitchen unit, dresser and an all-important lantern!
You'll find natural light will soon come flooding inside through an exquisite stained-glass window for some extra colour, with perfectly positioned double doors that lead to a decked area including a covered cooking area with fire pit....Toilets,showers and washbasins are found in the communal camping meadow just a couple of minutes' walk away.
For an extra sense of romance, why not escape to The Snook, a gorgeous getaway for two set in a sumptuous sensory garden filled with the soothing sounds of running water - and featuring its own redwood cedar barrel sauna. You'll find a small fire bowl to warm your evenings, and a private toilet, with full use of the nearby communal showers, sinks and fridge freezer.
Inside, you'll find a double bed, plenty of soft cushions and 2 small dining tables and cushioned seating. There are single gas stoves for cooking, with utensils and equipment.
If you prefer a more traditional method of glamping, the pre-pitched 4-metre bell tents that each sleep up to 4 people, are ideal! Each are furnished with rugs, Moroccan cushions and hand-painted Indian tables for a true sense of the exotic...and there's even a two-tier chandelier for a touch of luxury! You'll share toilets and showers in the nearby camping meadow, and there's a communal firepit for barbecuing...or that all-important fireside singing later on.
Of course, you're also welcome to pitch your own tent and make use of the communal facilities in the camping meadow for a more traditional camping experience.
Entertainment-wise, you'll find plenty of natural activity on site to keep everybody occupied, with lush woodland to explore. The children (and most adults!) will love the Fairy Wish Trail. Art workshops are available for those who fancy letting their creative juices flow - or for something different, why not come along to a circus workshop!
Further afield, you'll love the site's close proximity to some of Cornwall's most renowned attractions, from the Eden Project to the Lost Gardens of Heligan.
So if you're looking to get lost in the natural surroundings of friendly and welcoming woodland, why not take a stroll through the site of Acorn Camping and Glamping...and stay awhile?

loved our break. Thankyou for letting us celebrate our special day. Clay trails
make for great biking. Hobbit Hideaway was the highlight of our year. Loved the
surrounding nature, truly amazing and peaceful, mysterious and majestic place just
what we needed away from hectic lives in London. Hope you will have us again
