Unique and unusual stays in Cornwall

We understand – you’ve stayed in self-catering cottages, you’ve slept in soulless hotels and you’ve tried who-knows-how-many B&Bs. You’ve had a go at camping, but the freezing night-time temperatures and humid, dewy mornings just aren’t tempting you back.  You’re looking for somewhere special – really special – but you don’t want to compromise on comfort. Why should you? Well, this is where our unique stays come in. With a portfolio of unique and unusual stays in Cornwall, we can help you find somewhere that ticks all the boxes – combining beautiful settings, quirky designs and lots of little luxuries for the ultimate glamping retreat in Cornwall

Here to share with you our list of magical places to stay in Cornwall, we’re ready to transform your UK glamping experiences forever. In fact, we’ll probably spoil you for good. From unique woodland hideaways to sunrise safari tents overlooking island castles to clifftop cabins high over the Atlantic, we have something for you. 

Our favourite unique stays, Cornwall:

Mount View Sunrise Safari Tent

First up on our list of unusual places to stay in Cornwall is Mount View Sunrise Safari Tent. One of our sea-view glamping retreats in Cornwall, we love this safari tent for its amazing views over the fairy-tale St Michael’s Mount, its next-level home-comforts and its cosy-luxe vibes. If you ever thought that glamping in the UK was a little lacking in the ‘glam’ – think again. This family-friendly safari tent has private sleeping areas, a wood-fired range, a come-hither sofa and an outdoor hot tub.

Blackberry Jack’s Wagon

We all know that the health benefits of glamping in nature are as manifold as they are profound, which is one of the reasons why we love this luxury wagon so much. That, and the charmingly pretty interiors. And the gorgeous countryside setting. Oh, and the seriously cute donkey neighbours. Only 2 miles from the golden sands of Porthtowan, yet enjoying peaceful isolation in a private orchard, it has everything you could need for a restorative break – including your very own kitchen cabin next door.

The Lion’s Den at Warleggan

If glamping with a hot tub is the only way to go for you, we honestly can’t blame you. So, imagine then, if you could enjoy hot tub glamping in the most tranquil of settings. Cue The Lion’s Den at Warleggan. This gorgeous shepherd’s hut in Cornwall is like a scene plucked from a summer dream. Secluded, stylish and oh-so serene, it’s the kind of place that will immediately ease your mind and lift your spirits. Bubbles, anyone?

Panoramic Silverbullet

This instantly captivating airstream had to make it onto our list of unique places to stay in Cornwall, it’s as beautiful with a spring backdrop of multi-coloured flowers as with autumn’s russet tones. While inside, the soothing neutral hues, wood-burner and sumptuous furnishings exude homely vibes, outside the sleek retro exterior, the quirky barbecue and bubbling hot tub tease our wild sides. A real American beauty in Cornwall, this unique stay with its woodland and countryside views is perfect for both romantic escapes and rejuvenating solo breaks.

Mistery 2

One of our favourite quirky places to stay in Cornwall is Mistery 2, an outstanding houseboat lovingly designed and created by seasoned shipwrights.  Featuring a luxurious open-plan living area with a wood-burner, two bedrooms (for up to four people) and two bathrooms, it’s everything you could wish for and more from an ultra-comfy home-from-home, on water. Gently lapped by the meandering River Kennal, this stationary houseboat has dropped anchor in a magical tidal creek and awaits for a unique stay unlike any other.

Wildwood Hideaway

For more unique stays in Cornwall, turn your attention to Wildwood Hideaway near Rock. Nestled within a peaceful wooded landscape within 200 acres of countryside, this magical log cabin is as inviting as they come. In the morning, wake up to a dawn chorus of birdsong and sip coffee as bright shards of sunlight pierce through the branches, and in the evening, cuddle up by the indoor wood-burner and sink into a blissful stupor – a world away from the demands of everyday life.
