Sleeps 6 | dog friendly

Safari tent in Cornwall with a hot tub: a spacious family-friendly retreat with breathtaking views of the ocean and the iconic St Michael's Mount.
Mount View Horizon is a coastal family escape at its finest. This luxury safari tent is set in West Cornwall in a blissful wildflower meadow, with unbeatable panoramic views out to sea and St Michael’s Mount. After a day of exploring Cornwall’s sandy beaches and hidden coves, relax in the hammocks, watch the sunset from the hot tub and toast marshmallows on the fire pit under the stars.
The moment you step up onto the deck and get a glimpse through the canvas doors, you’ll see that Mount View Horizon is as special inside as it is out. In the open plan layout you’ll find rustic, country interiors and ample living space, including a comfy sofa and a wood-fired range, so you’ll be cosy and warm whatever the weather. The kitchen area features an electric hob, microwave and full-sized fridge with a small freezer - everything you need to prepare a picnic or a hearty meal to enjoy at the family-size dining table. There are two bedrooms (a double and a twin) as well as a charming double cabin bed, providing comfortable sleeping space for up to six. At the far end of the tent there’s a modern en suite shower room to freshen up after a day of exploring and wild swimming, with a heated towel rail for an extra little bit of luxury. There’s WiFi too, if you want to snuggle up with a movie on your laptop on a drizzly evening!
Outside, there’s plenty of space for you to relax and for the children to play. Settle into a chair on the decking and enjoy the breathtaking views while you sip your morning coffee. Or lie back in the hammock and soak up some sunshine while the children let off steam in the play area, complete with trampoline, climbing frame, football goals and volleyball net. As the evening draws in and the sun starts to set, unwind in the hot tub and watch the sky turn shades of pink and orange. And before bed, light up the fire pit, huddle round and toast marshmallows together in this magical setting under the stars.
In the surrounding meadow there’s another safari tent, Mount View Sunrise (3349) and a shepherd’s hut, Mount View Retreat (3350), but each is situated to provide privacy and space. There’s also an on-site honesty shop where you’ll find everyday essentials, seasonal ingredients and treats, and a handy washing machine.
Dogs are welcome at Mount View Horizon, so your four-legged friend can join in the family adventure.

St Michael's Mount
This local landmark looks like something straight out of a fairytale; a medieval castle perched on top of a little tidal island, complete with cobbled streets and even its own harbour and gardens. ...
The Cornish theatre with real ‘wow’ factor is the Minack. Perched on the cliffs at Porthcurno, the Minack is an open-air theatre-in-the-round – and a triumph of vision over reality.
The Godolphin Arms
Perfect for a snack before or after following in the pilgrim’s footsteps to St Michael’s Mount.
