Cornish Tipi Holidays & Camping

127 units · Glamping, Motorhomes, Tents20 acres · Cornwall, South West England
Wake up to the sound of birdsong, go swimming before breakfast in the clear water of a secluded lake. Cook your bacon and eggs over an open fire while you plan your day, or just laze it away in the peace and quiet of your own personal tipi. You can always go fishing tomorrow, and walk along the cliffs the day after that… The site is a unique woodland valley folded around a clear, spring-fed lake created from the old Tregildrans Quarry. Our tipis and tent pitches are dotted about this secret 20 acres full of ferns, bluebells, oak and meadowsweet. Left in peace for many years there's been no modern chemicals or poisons on the land, meaning we've got bluebells, dormice, Red Admirals and shy woodland Jays for you to spot. It’s a place set apart from the rush and clutter of the modern holiday experience, with an atmosphere that makes you forget the world outside, and just lounge, ramble, or potter about in a boat. We're committed to giving you a genuinely individual service from first contact to your time staying with us. We established CTH in 1996. This was the first and we believe still is the best tipi holiday site in the UK. We know our area inside out and can always help with local knowledge or contacts if you need them. We want to offer our guests a sustainable holiday. A return to real camping means the lowest possible impact on the land and environment - our tipi poles don’t even break the surface of the earth. Your footprint while here could only be bettered by a survival expert. You don't have to fly! a major bonus, and we source all our wood, fish and canvas locally and work with local people wherever possible.

There is, in the middle of our farm - a Pagan Tree circle which dates back to before the village church was built. It is also the center point of Devon and is on the main lay-line from Cornwall to Glastonbury. Our village has a fabulous pub, The Tom Cobley and there is also a very good village shop. We also welcome children and dogs

Rosebud Ranch

1 unit · Glamping13 acres · Umberleigh, England
Rosebud Ranch is an off grid, 13 acre, adults only, eco friendly alpaca farm situated between Dartmoor and Exmoor in North Devon. We have lovely views, abundant wildlife and some stunning sunsets! There is a woodland adjoining our land which is home to owls, deer and many other wild animals, we often see hares playing in our fields too! The Ranch has been built up over the last 6 years from being just fields to a working farm and home for us with our animals, a herd of alpacas, a small flock of very friendly sheep, bees, hens, horses, cats and a dog. We have used reclaimed materials for many projects including animals shelters, we are fully solar powered, we farm organically and we make rugs and horse tack from alpaca/sheep fleece! We are known for being the first farm in the UK to offer 'alpaca yoga' and appeared on ITV This Morning with our herd, the Rosebud Alpacas. We are very passionate about wellbeing, nurturing mind, body and soul and so we pride ourselves on offering genuine connection to nature and animals in an authentic setting. The beauty of staying with us is that you have plenty of privacy due to us not being a large site, we much prefer to offer peace and tranquillity to our guests, we have had many compliments about how our farm enables time to recharge and just be. As the herd are located next to the tent, you will experience the true nature of the alpaca whilst they interact, feed their babies and you can watch the alpaca babies ( cria ) play. Our super friendly sheep are always close by for some attention too! South Molton town is a 10 min drive and there are a couple of country pubs within walking distance. Our neighbours at Collacott offer riding lessons/hacks and we are within easy reach of some beautiful beaches. Bespoke rug orders can be taken and we also sell our produce on site such as alpaca yarn, fresh eggs, soap, honey from our own bees, extra fire wood and more. We grow our own veg using horse and alpaca manure so occasionally sell the vegetables and the alpaca poop! It is in great demand, mostly because it doesn't need to be rotted down, used straight from alpaca to garden!

Glamping sites with fishing in South West England guide

Overview

South West England packs a punch when it comes to natural attractions—two national parks, four UNESCO sites, and more Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty than any other region. The idyllic coast and countryside of Cornwall, Devon, Dorset, and Somerset offer plenty of perfect places to pitch a tent whether you fancy a site near the sea or a rural retreat. Seaside resorts and surf breaks await along the rocky shores of Cornwall and Devon, while inland is prime for hiking, biking, and horse riding across the moorlands of Exmoor and Dartmoor. Add in the usually warmer weather of the south and it’s no wonder that so many campers holiday in South West England. Summer is peak season for coastal campers, but many choose to return to admire the fall foliage or spring wildflowers. Winters are wet and windy but milder than elsewhere in the UK, making it a safe bet for campervan and caravan trips. South West England is a region well worth exploring—and a camping holiday is the perfect way to do it.

Where to go

Gloucestershire and Wiltshire

The enigmatic ruins of Stonehenge draw crowds to Wiltshire, and attending the Summer Solstice celebrations is a bucket-list must for adventurous campers. If glamping and gastro-pubs is more your style, nowhere does idyllic countryside quite like the Cotswolds, with its rolling green hills, honey-coloured stone cottages, and numerous celebrity residents. To the south, hikers can also set out along the legendary Offa's Dyke Path, a National Trail that runs between England and Wales.

Somerset and Dorset

The cities of Bristol and Bath are the gateway to the rural regions of Somerset and Dorset, where the beach is never more than a few hours’ drive away. Some of the best hiking and camping is found in the Exmoor National Park, but equally rewarding is a hike through the Cheddar Gorge. More than 40% of Dorset is designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, so it’s not hard to find a pretty pitch. Set up camp near the beach (sandy favourites include Weymouth and Bournemouth) or in the wide-open Dorset countryside. In Somerset, great campsites sit on its 40-mile stretch of coast (try Minehead, Weston-super-Mare, or the start of the South West Coastal Path), but even more lie inland. The Somerset Levels and Moors make up a flat landscape of fertile low-lying land perfect for farm and meadow campsites, while the Mendips, Blackdown Hills, and Quantocks are all Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

Devon

With a north and south coast, plus a whole lot of countryside sandwiched in between, Devon’s sea views and hillside hikes make prime terrain for outdoor enthusiasts on camping holidays. Explore the wild landscapes of the Exmoor and Dartmoor national parks, where native ponies roam freely across the moors. Continue to the south coast to discover the Jurassic Coast, stopping at the port towns of Torquay and Brixham or surfer-friendly beaches like Croyde and Woolacombe, and don’t forget to try some traditional English scones, served with jam and Devonshire clotted cream. Like neighbouring Cornwall, Devon has plenty of campsites for experiencing the charms of both coast and country.

Cornwall

Soaring sea cliffs, tranquil fishing villages, and blue flag beaches provide the backdrop for hiking, camping, and exploring in Cornwall. Check into a beachfront campsite along the Cornish Riviera, try a countryside farm campsite instead, head to the surf mecca of Newquay on the north coast, or escape the crowds on the Isles of Scilly. Other must-dos include a visit to Land’s End, the westernmost point of mainland Britain, and a hike along the South West Coast Path. During a Cornwall camping holiday, you can get a taste for this fiercely independent county with Cornish pasties, cream teas, and ice creams. On days out from your campsite, visit the most westerly point of the British mainland at Land’s End or the most southerly point on the Lizard peninsula.

Top things to do while camping in South West England

  1. Have a cream tea. Devonshire or Cornwall, it’s up to you—as is whether you prefer jam on the cream or cream on the jam!
  2. Take a walk on the 630-mile South West Coast Path, which edges all the counties in South West England.
  3. Build sandcastles on one of the region’s sandy beaches.
  4. Hone your skills on a surfboard. Beginner or old hand, the south west is England’s surfing capital.
  5. Check out the geology—see the fossils and chalky stacks of Dorset and Devon, the cliffs of Cornwall, or the caves of Somerset.
  6. Enjoy West Country produce: apples, cider, and cheese, among other things, make for perfect picnic lunches on days out from your campsite.
  7. Visit a national park. Hit Exmoor or Dartmoor to explore the heathland and see free-roaming ponies.
