  • On the edge of Bodmin Moor
  • With alpacas, open-air amphitheatre and excellent views
  • Pubs within walking distance
An all-star welcome from Starsky and Hutch the alpacas, an evening’s entertainment at an open-air amphitheatre, or a shower in a converted piggery: an array of novel experiences await you at Little Upton Boutique Belltents, on the edge of Bodmin Moor in south-east Cornwall. With an impeccable vista of the Cornish countryside, this bijou glamping site is brilliantly located, whether you’re after pure relaxation, an active break or a combination of the two. The roomy bell tents come with up to one double futon and a further two single futons if required. (Please remember to bring your own bed linen and towels.) The bell tents also come with a woodburning stove, a kettle, and homely touches such as twinkling fairy lights on the center pole in the middle of the tent. Perched on raised decking (for extra warmth), each tent has a lovely 'balcony' with cute outdoor dining furniture and ample space for loafing about and admiring the views. The bell tents have access to a well-equipped communal kitchen with fridge, kettle, toaster and microwave in the converted piggery block (where you’ll also find the shower and loo). Cracking free-range eggs, sausages and the like are often available to purchase on site, or there’s a small shop a five minute walk away in the hamlet of Upton Cross (the local delicacy is a world champion cheese, Cornish Blue). However, with a cluster of cosy country inns surrounding the site, you’ll be spoiled for choice if you fancy eating out instead. Please note that dogs are not allowed and smoking is strictly forbidden anywhere on site.

Local attractions

Little Upton Boutique Belltents is ideal for outdoorsy types of every inclination: the nearby lakes at Siblyback offer fantastic fishing and an extensive range of watersports; there’s top-notch horse riding, walking and biking around beautiful Bodmin Moor (and the famous Camel Trail cycle route, where you can also hire bikes, is only half an hour’s drive away); the River Tamar provides sailing, boat trips and fishing; and for golfers, there are plenty of local golf clubs for teeing off, including beauties such as that at Lanhydrock. For evening entertainment, try the Sterts open air amphitheatre, just a hop and a skip away from your tent: this unique venue hosts regular music, theatre and comedy productions during the warmer months; alternatively, it’s a short drive to the towns of Liskeard and Launceston. Little Upton Boutique Belltents is halfway between the two coasts of Cornwall, so guests are perfectly placed for sightseeing. Take your pick of glorious coastal towns such as Fowey, Looe and Polperro; world-famous gardens such as the Lost Gardens of Heligan or the Eden Project; country estates such as Lanhydrock and Cotehele, plus animal attractions, museums, theme parks and more.
