Safari tent in Cornwall with a hot tub: spacious, luxury glamping in the Cornish countryside, just a stone’s throw away from the beautiful coast. The perfect escape to nature for the whole family.
Situated in the heart of the stunning Cornish countryside, this peaceful luxury hideaway is the perfect place for the whole family to unwind amongst nature with the ocean on the horizon. After a day of exploring west Cornwall’s hidden coves, relax by the wood-burner or in the wood-fired hot tub under the stars.
Foxglove is a retreat to nature with all the comforts of home. Under the canvas roof you’ll find two cosy bedrooms towards the back of the tent (a double and a twin) and another charming cabin bed in the main living area, providing ample room for up to six. The spacious kitchen has everything you need to prepare a picnic for a day out adventuring, including a wood-fired range, Belfast sink and larder fridge. Spend a slow morning snuggled on the sofa with a good book in front of the warm glow of the wood-burner, or plan a treat meal out nearby using the handy Wifi. And after a day at the beach, rinse off the salt and sand in the en suite, with a walk-in shower and separate toilet and wash basin. Foxglove lives up to its name too, with purple and pink accents and details throughout.
Outside, snooze in the hammock or relax on the loungers and soak up the picturesque views of the idyllic Lamorna Valley. Cook up an al fresco feast on the camping stove or fire-pit barbecue, with provisions and treats purchased from the on-site honesty-shop. As the sun sets, dip into the bubbling wood-fired hot tub and watch the sky turn to orange before gazing up at the stars.
Not only is Foxglove the perfect place to unwind, but there’s plenty to keep children entertained too, with a play area, trampoline, games room and cinema room all on-site. Surrounding the safari tent, there’s plenty of farmland and woodland to explore - keep an eye out for the owners’ friendly pets, including some super sweet Shetland ponies.
You’ll have just two other safari tents as neighbours 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 hustle and bustle of everyday life.
Dogs are welcome, so your beloved pooch doesn’t have to miss out on the fun either.
