East Thorne Roundhouses
Indulge in the natural luxury of Cornwall's Great Outdoors at East Thorne Roundhouses - with plenty of indoor luxury included!
East Thorne Roundhouses is an original glamping concept, lovingly created by a family who fell in love with glamping and the Great Outdoors...and set about creating a luxurious en-suite glamping alternative for couples looking for a romantic get-away.
The Roundhouses is the result: a collection of five retreats in a heavenly setting in rural Cornwall, close to the coast, where couples and families can rest their heads in style, privacy, comfort and abundant luxury.
The warm welcome you'll receive just as soon as you arrive on site is just the beginning of your fun and relaxing holiday experience!
Immerse yourselves in the fresh atmosphere by cooking up a storm in your very own alfresco kitchen. or relax in your private wood burning hot tub for a cosy night under the stars.
Your stylish larch-clad Roundhouse itself - complete with wood burning hot tub - will truly convince you that opulence and nature are a match made in paradise. A step up from their popular yurt accommodation (a glamping option also offered by East Thorne), each Roundhouse with its privacy has an internal décor is modern and fun, complementing your natural countryside setting beautifully. There are four family Roundhouses, with connecting cabin room allowing for up to four dwellers and one for couples sleeping two guests in a private garden setting. Two of the Roundhouses are also dog-friendly so you can bring the whole family along!
Luxury is imbued in the Roundhouses, with hand-selected furnishings, fixtures and fittings, ranging from toasty underfloor heating and a warming wood burner to soft, sumptuous fabrics, cosy bedding and a stylish ensuite bathroom.
In the couple's Roundhouse, the private garden houses your wood-fired hot tub, covered supper kitchen and a fire bowl that's ideal for snuggling round as you watch the sunset. If you want to catch the stars on colder evenings, you'll find the Roundhouses eco-grass rooves come equipped with a magnified central sky porthole that will keep you perfectly entertained!
Blissfully nestled away from the main site, you can indulge in privacy at The Roundhouses, chat evenings away or make good use of the herb garden and outdoor pizza oven.
The luxury doesn't quite end there! You'll find plenty of thoughtful touches almost everywhere you care to look, from on site arranged spa treatments to organised surf lessons. There are also plenty of foodie treats and locally-sourced hampers on offer , too - how about a Romantic Gourmet Glamper Hamper, or a ‘Brekky Glamper Hamper that takes care of breakfast on your first morning?
You'll find the family owners know the area extremely well, and are able to link you with carefully chosen activity and experience providers...so however you'd like to spend your time, you can! Maybe you'd like to learn how to surf, go horse riding, rock climb or try yoga for size?
Of course, you could always take a simple stroll along the North Cornwall coastal paths and drink in the magnificent scenery all around you. And with so many beaches within such a short distance, dolphin watching, rock pooling and constructing sandcastles all become easy pleasures.
Further afield, Boscastle and Tintagel offer even more beautiful scenery, with nearby Clovelly a haven of picture-perfect streets. The Eden Project is within easy driving distance, as is Trethorne Leisure Park and the Milky Way - perfect for keeping the kids entertained!
If you thought luxury, style and comfort just couldn't exist in the glamping world, be prepared to be proved gloriously wrong with a stay in an East Thorne Roundhouse. You may never holiday in a hotel again!

Tried and tested
"It honestly was beautiful. The layout is faultless. We stayed for two nights and we couldn't have asked for a more welcoming, peaceful and amazing place to stay... The location is perfect, 5 minute drive from the shops and a 15 minute drive from the beach. I couldn't quite believe how inexpensive this was. Thank you Naomi and Adam!"
"We stayed two nights in the Roundhouse. Naomi made us feel so welcome and nothing was any trouble during our stay there. It was all presented very well.. I would jump at the chance to come back again in the future and would recommend the Roundhouse to any couple looking for a breakaway in Cornwall."
