Safari tent in Cornwall with a hot tub: luxurious, family-friendly glamping just a stone’s throw away from west Cornwall’s beautiful beaches. Enjoy glimpses of the glistening sea from your wood-fired hot-tub.
Nestled in the stunning Cornish countryside with the ocean on the horizon, this peaceful, spacious, luxury hideaway is the perfect place for the whole family to unwind amongst nature. After a long day of exploring Cornwall’s hidden gems and idyllic beaches, relax by the wood-burner or in the wood-fired hot tub under the stars.
Buttercup is an escape to nature with all the comforts of home. Under the canvas roof you’ll find two cosy bedrooms (a double and a twin) and another charming cabin bed in the main living area, providing ample room for six guests. The spacious kitchen has a wood-fired range, Belfast sink and larder fridge - everything you need to prepare the perfect picnic for your day’s adventure. Sink into the sofa in front of the warm glow of the wood burner and snuggle up with a good book, or plan your next day out with the handy Wi-Fi. And after a day of wild swimming and beach walking, freshen up in the en suite, with a walk-in shower and separate toilet and wash basin. Buttercup lives up to its name too, with sunny yellow accents and details throughout.
Outside, the loungers and hammock are perfect for relaxing on sunny, lazy days, and soaking up the picturesque views of the idyllic Lamorna Valley. Enjoy al fresco meals on the decking, cooked on the camping stove or fire-pit barbecue with provisions and treats purchased from the on-site honesty-shop. From the bubbling wood-fired hot tub, listen to the birds singing their evening songs as the sun sets or cosy up under the stars with a late night dip.
Not only is Buttercup the perfect place to relax, but there’s lots to keep children entertained too, with a play area, trampoline, games room and cinema room all on-site. There’s plenty of surrounding farmland and woodland to explore as well - keep an eye out for the owners’ friendly pets, including some super sweet Shetland ponies.
There are just two other safari tents in this large car-free meadow (the parking area is nearby and there are wheelbarrows on hand to help you transport your luggage) and each tent is positioned and designed with each other’s privacy in mind, making this a peaceful break away from the busyness of daily life.
Dogs are welcome, so your four-legged friends don’t have to miss out on the fun either.
