Camping - Home
Relax and unwind in our beautiful, fully furnished Belle Tents here in North Cornwall on our small private site with campfire, barbeque area and chill-out tent.
The campsite is arranged into three separate family camps, each with two bedroom tents and a fully equipped kitchen tent. They are sited on their own lawn area bordered with shrubs and flower beds, so are a bit like a holiday cottage - only without the cottage.
The bedroom tents each have beds, duvets and pillows for two people, however the larger tents are roomy enough for extra people if you bring sleeping bags/bedding allowing up to to six people per camp.
Or why not get a group of friends together and hire the whole site exclusively for yourselves. So far we have welcomed birthday parties, hen and stag weekends and even a wedding celebration: Watch a video on YouTube made by one of our groups.
The site can accommodate up to a maximum of 17 people and can be booked for short stays throughout the season.
We also offer a discounted price for whole site weekly bookings - good for families who wish to holiday together.
CAMP 1 - Suitable for up to 5 people.
14' tent with double bed, and a 12' tent with twin beds + kitchen tent.

14' tent with double bed, and a 14' tent with twin beds + kitchen tent.
CAMP 3 - Suitable for up to 6 people.

See Campsite Layout for a plan of the campsite showing positions of the tents and kitchens etc.
The Bedroom Tents have carpeted wooden floors, real beds, rugs & wall linings, chest of drawers, bedside tables, tea-lanterns and solar light.
There are beds for two people in each tent with duvets, pillows and blankets but please bring your own linen. If you are bringing extra people, we do have spare foam mattresses and a travel cot so please indicate on the booking form if you would like to reserve any.
The Kitchen Tents have their own stand-pipe and, as all the water here is from a bore-hole, it tastes delicious. The kitchens are fully equipped for up to six people with pans, crockery and utensils, gas hob and fridge, storage boxes, tables and chairs, solar light - in other words everything you would need to cook up a gourmet meal.
The 'bar' and recreation tent for social gatherings, bring your own wine or beer. There is a woodburner, fridge/freezer for drinks, powered speakers for Mp3 players etc plus power points for mobile phones. The tent is also nice to be in during wet days for playing our collection of board games or thrashing your friends on our original 1970's football table. Wanted: the footie table takes the old, large 10p - or 2 shilling - pieces. We had about £5 worth to start with but many have got lost, so if you have any in the back of a cupboard you would like to donate to us we would be very grateful.
The Showers & Toilets are in a purpose built building supplied with Ecover hand soap, hand towels and hair-dryer. There is a further shower and toilet in our nearby workshop which also has a washing machine and drying lines.
On the outside of the shower building is a covered washing up area with Ecover washing up liquid.
The campfire and barbeque area is a great place to sit of an evening, tell stories and gaze at the stars. The fully equipped covered barbeque is wood fired - so you don't need to bring charcoal - and can even be used in rainy weather. Wood is provided for the campfire, barbeque and woodburner in the 'bar' tent.
If you want to make sitting around the campfire really special, then try Mystical Fire which will transform the fire into dancing flames of vibrant colours.
There is an additional field that is planted with bamboos and huge grasses with paths to wander round plus a green space with a badminton net and football goal. Our own hens also live in the field giving us lovely fresh eggs - so please don't bring eggs with you.
We are sorry but for various reasons we cannot allow dogs on site. However there are kennels about 3 miles away at Collans Cross.
We will open this year on Friday 26th April to Monday 30th September 2013.

Here is a video of Frank Yamma from Australia and George Telek, Airi Ingram and Richard Mobu from Papua New Guinea, playing round our campfire in June 2012. They were on tour in the UK as part of the Wantok Musik Foundation. Simon Swale plays mandolin in The Damp Rats and has spent many years in PNG and Vanuatu. Frank Yamma and David Bridie went on to play at WOMAD and we were lucky enough to go with them. Many thanks to all including Min, who made it happen for us.
