Acorn Camping & Glamping – Cornwall

Located within 7 acres of meadows and traditional broadleaf woodland, we are quietly nestled in an area of outstanding natural beauty. Acorn Camping and Glamping is a unique place, in a tranquil setting in the heart of Luxulyan Valley. Magical walkways and flora and fauna untouched and rarely seen are in abundance.
This unique location is a holiday that will always be remembered. Whether camping in a tent on the camping field, the log cabin or staying in the Hobbit hamlet.

The site has no electric hook up, however there is a site-light which is on from dusk until dawn.


The spacious 11 square metre Hobbit Huts enjoy a landscaped setting overlooking a large pond. Ideal for glamping, each hut is nestled in its own niche; sleeping up to four on a double futon and cushioned wooden benches which convert into beds.

The huts are equipped with clothes hangers, table, boot box and bucket for keeping things cool. Baby crib available. Each hut has a covered outside cooking area and there is a communal fire pit by the pond. Nearby, each hut has its own shower room (with hot water) which includes a wash-basin and toilet. There is also a communal washing-up sink (cold water only) and clothes line.

The huts have no internal mains electricity and internal lighting is battery powered which can be re-charged by your car battery; however there are two site-lights which are on from dusk until dawn.

Sylvan Retreats are located in the Luxulyan Valley an area of Outstanding Natural Beauty with its unique network of waterside walks.

Sylvan View, a log cabin sleeping 2 is individually located and is quietly nestled on its hilltop location and enjoys views of the World Heritage site of the Luxulyan Valley.
Sylvan Barn also sleeping 2 is a delightful cottage set along a winding lane of the Luxulyan Valley itself and is ideally located for walking, cycling and sightseeing.

If you’re looking for some extra activity during your holiday why not book onto an art workshop where you can paint or sculpt or use recycled materials to create a piece of art work. Or why not come along to a circus workshop or try a Zumba workshop al fresco. See our On Site activities page for more information.

Acorn Camping and Glamping have two communal fire pits, logs available for you to enjoy that evening by the fire and al fresco cooking. Children love making dens in the wood and we are developing a den-making pack to make this activity exciting and fun.
