Trecombe Lakes

· Falmouth, Cornwall, England
9 acres hosted by Trecombe L.
8 glamping pitches
Self-contained luxury lodge and pods in a tranquil waterside setting close to Falmouth and the River Helford

Opened in 2013, Trecombe Lakes is one of Cornwall's loveliest glampsites. Secreted in a tranquil waterside spot near the charming village of Constantine, this idyllic setting is perfect for a hassle-free Cornish break.

The six pods which comprise the glamping lodgings are perfect for reluctant tent campers. Somehow managing to be both cosy and airy, the fully insulated pods are kitted out with comfy beds (one double and a couple of singles) and linen so all you need do is bring yourself and an appetite for exploring this magical corner of south-west England. There's even a cute little kitchenette so you can cook up a storm using some of the fine Cornish produce on offer (be sure to ask about their special breakfast hampers) and an en-suite toilet and shower room inside each pod.        

The newest addition to Trecombe Lakes is the super luxurious woodland lodge. More treehouse than cabin, this hi-spec abode sleeps up to six and comes brimming with all mod cons including underfloor heating and stylish interiors. There's a wood-fired Swedish hot tub on the veranda, with gorgeous views of the surrounding woodland and lakes. 

Kids will love exploring the nine acres of woodland and the play area with climbing wall, treehouse, nets and rope swings. The centrepiece of the site though is the eponymous lake (conscientiously fenced off from the play area). Should you tire of the innumerable places to visit offsite (including the path of the nearby Helford River), jump in one of the complimentary rowing boats for a peaceful paddle on the water, before lounging back on your decking with a beer and a barbie on the go. Pure bliss.

We spend the weekend at Trecombe land for my husband's birthday and it was so incredibly amazing for us. The pod was spotless and had everything we needed. It was very cosy and warm and the grounds were kept immaculate! Amazing 👏

Lakeside Lodge
Relaxing break
We had a lovely relaxing break in one of the lodges at Trecombe. The campsite is in a great location and the lodge itself was super comfortable and well kitted out. We loved exploring around the area and returning to the lodge to enjoy the wood burner in the evening. Thanks for a wonderful holiday.

We recently had a fantastic stay in one of Trecombe Lakes Pods. The pods are spacious and cosy. The beds are really comfortable and the shower is great! I was expecting the bathroom to be a lot smaller than it was - There was plenty of room. The location is also stunning. My son had a great time making friends and playing in the playground. Highly recommend.

We had been very much looking forward to having a weekend away after a difficult year and Trecombe lakes was the perfect location. Having been a fair weather camper for many years we are now definitely converted to glamping.....Trecombe is a quiet site with seven pods and although it was fully booked we hardly noticed any noise . We loved the fact that BBQs and campfires are very much encouraged and sat out very cosily all evening despite the early morning frost . An unexpected bonus was the nature trail around the lakes which again was very quiet and the perfect spot to sit and enjoy the beautiful location. We will definitely return.
