Safari tent in Cornwall: Sitting pretty in a wildflower meadow and just a few minutes' drive away from the coast, Hobie is a rustic and earthy retreat, just waiting to capture your heart.
For the seekers of rustic havens that offer a little bit of luxury, Hobie is the perfect hideaway for you. Settled in an area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and positioned in a 7acre wildflower meadow, this spectacular safari tent can only be described as something out of the ordinary. The Scandinavian inspired interiors give this earthy retreat an abundance of character. With old meets new furnishings, fur throws, distressed timber, hide rugs, corrugated metal and even a wood-burner, this glamping tent provides the perfect getaway, no matter the time of year.
The site itself is shared with one other safari tent (Woody) and a quirky shipping container (Rusty). However, you have complete privacy. The field in which Hobie is positioned is a truly tranquil paradise and it doesn't stop there. In the neighbouring field there's plenty of room to run freely or enjoy a picnic overlooking nothing but unspoilt nature. There is a rope swing, hammock and even a rowing boat for children to play with and while they are keeping busy, you can enjoy the peace and quiet of the countryside as you relax on your raised decking, glass of wine in hand as you breathe in the fresh Cornish air. Hobie is a world away from the stresses and strains of everyday life. You'll find yourself switching off from the moment you arrive.
Inside, there's plenty of room for six with two bedrooms (a double and a twin), as well as a cute cabin bed in the main living area. Sprung mattresses and quality bed linens ensure a good night's sleep, and all the practicalities are included, from soft towels to a double power socket, enamel mugs - to use inside or out - and lanterns. There's a wood-fired range, which doubles as a cooker at mealtimes and for heating in the cooler months. At the rear of the tent, you find a wooden annexe, housing a large wet-room, a separate washroom and a storage area with a fridge.
The on-site honesty shop is quaintness personified, offering a mix of delights, farm-fresh local produce and everyday essentials, including Cornish pasties, eggs, bacon and ice cream. And when you get back from the beach and are ready to cook up a feast, help yourself to some fresh herbs, from the herb boat to make your meal extra special. You can either gather round the barbecue or get together by the nearby shared fire-pit, which has amazing views over the rugged Cornish coast. The perfect spot for a romantic dinner or a family fire pit session. There's no better way to end the day than by toasting marshmallows on the dancing flames, while watching the sky transform into a pastel pallet of soft summer hues, as the sun slowly begins to set.

If you love the water, you are in for a treat! Poldu and Mullion cove are a short drive away and the famous Kynance Cove isn't far.

Quaint fishing villages like Cadgwith Cove and Porthleven are waiting to be discovered. You'll enjoy your days strolling along these harbours and why not pick up some fresh fish to cook on the barbecue once you return to your rustic Eden?
