Mount View Sunrise Safari Tent
2.2 miles NE of Penzance
Sleeps 6 | dog friendly
From £113 per night
Safari tent in Cornwall with a hot tub: a luxury, family-friendly haven with idyllic views of the ocean and St Michael's Mount.
Set in a stunning wildflower meadow in the Cornish countryside, Mount View Sunrise is a spacious safari tent with breathtaking panoramic views out to sea and the iconic St Michael’s Mount. Nearby, there are sandy beaches, hidden coves and enchanting woodlands to discover. And when you’re done exploring, head back to your tent to snooze in the hammocks, toast marshmallows on the firepit at sunset and stargaze from your own private hot tub.
From the moment you arrive you’ll see that Mount View Sunrise is a tranquil, inviting space for your whole family. The open plan layout has rustic wooden interiors and ample living space, including a large dining table, comfy sofa and a wood-fired range, so you’ll be cosy and warm whatever the time of year. If you want to watch a movie together or plan your next day of adventures, there’s handy WiFi included too. You’ll find everything you need to prepare a family meal in the well-thought-out kitchen area - an electric hob, microwave and full-sized fridge with a small freezer. There are two bedrooms (a double and a twin) as well as a quaint double cabin bed, providing sleeping space for up to six. And at the far end of the tent you’ll find a modern en suite shower room with a heated towel rail, so freshening up after a day at the beach is that little bit more luxurious.
Mount View Sunrise’s outside space is just as special and spacious. Relax with a good book in the hammock or watch the sunrise over the ocean as you eat breakfast out on the decking. While you enjoy the peace, the children will be happy in the play area, complete with climbing frame, football goals, volleyball net and trampoline. Your time outdoors doesn’t have to end when the sun goes down either - dipping in the hot tub or lighting up the fire pit is more fun under the stars!
In the surrounding meadow there’s another safari tent, Mount View Horizon (3348) and a shepherd’s hut, Mount View Retreat (3350), but each is situated so you’ll have your own privacy and space. On-site there’s also an honesty shop where you’ll find everyday essentials, local ingredients and treats, as well as a washing machine, just in case.
Dogs are welcome, so they can join the family adventure at Mount View Sunrise too.

Located 2.2 miles NE of Penzance powered by the classic guide
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.
