East Thorne Roundhouses
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 guests looking for a high-end alternative get-away.
The Roundhouses were the result: a step up from the original yurt accommodation (a glamping option also offered by East Thorne). A collection of five all year ROUND retreats in a heavenly rural Cornish setting close to the coast, and perfect for couples, families and groups.
In the couples' Roundhouse, you can immerse yourself in the fresh open air nestled away from the main part of the site. The private garden houses your fully equipped alfresco supper kitchen, wood-fired hot tub 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 eco-grass roof comes equipped with a magnified central sky porthole that will keep you perfectly entertained if you want to cosy up in bed.
There are four family Roundhouses, with connecting cabin room and each comes with its own private electric hot tub, perfect for relaxing in at the end of a busy day's sightseeing! Two of the Roundhouses, Fern and Ember, 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.
All Roundhouses are fitted to a very high standard and have a hand- picked modern fun internal décor to reflect what is at the core of the East Thorne experience. Think campfires, countryside, food and the ocean. They complement your natural setting perfectly.
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, organised surf lessons to seasonal activities . 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?
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. The East Thorne team is personal and dedicated to making sure you have all you need and get the best out of staying in this beautiful area. Whether that's a day trip, walk along the coast path, the perfect beach day or a special place to eat - the family team have tried and tested it all.
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."
