General

  • Environmentally-friendly site in the Luxulyan Valley
  • A mile from the Eden Project
  • Workshops, wildlife walk and communal firepit

Acorn Camping and Glamping, in Cornwall’s Luxulyan Valley, is an artfully environmentally-friendly site with workshops to pique your interest – and it's only a mile from environmentally excellent days at the famed Eden Project too.

Budding scholars, get ready to blossom. You could learn sculpture carving or indulge your inner clown by picking up circus skills, including aerial workshops in the site's own woodland… Kids can scavenge about on a woodland hunt and learn how to make dens and build fires – and fiction fans of all ages can listen enthralled to the storyteller who visits in summer.

The Luxulyan Valley is a World Heritage Site with Acorn Camping and Glamping at its heart near Par: expect seven acres of meadows and woodland, a private woodland walk, an abundance of wildlife and a network of waterside walks, all centrally placed to some of Cornwall’s most famed attractions.

As a tiny back to basics site, it’s Par for the course that Acorn allows campfires: blocks are available to stand barbecues on and the communal firepit takes care of cooking (pick up some logs from the site owners). Facilities include toilets, hot water showers, hot water washrooms and a washing-up area with cold water. Only logs are sold on site, but a shop and a pub are a mile and a half away.

Pitches are on a gently sloping three-quarters of an acre: park at the site entrance and offload your gear on the trolleys provided to get to your pitch.

Sorry but, because of the local wildlife, Acorn Camping and Glamping can’t accept dogs.

Please note

No cars/motorbikes by the pitch/unit. All cars must be parked in the designated area.

Facilities/activities including woodland activities & workshops are subject to extra charges payable on arrival.

The site caters for families (immediate members) and couples only - bookings from all other forms of groups are not accepted.

Under 18s must be accompanied by their parents or legal guardians.

No hen/stag parties permitted via Pitchup.com.

    Stayed in a Hobbit Hut. Well set up site with several Hobbit huts and holes well spaced across 2 acres woodland.
    Great trail through woods, boys enjoyed, lots of effort from owners.
    Hut basic but fine. Own toilet and shower, basic but hot. Covid guidance followed and thought through.
    No heating in hobbit hut so take lots of blankets and/or decent sleeping bags.
    Hut provides hot water bottles.

    Disliked:

    The huts were very sweet, with everything you need to have a great holiday! The site is situated in a stunning valley, with plenty of beautiful walks nearby and lots of things to see and do a short drive away. Even on a rainy and cold weekend, we had everything we needed to stay cosy, explore the picturesque forest, cook nice food and gaze up at the stars at night! Very quiet and peaceful, and the owners were friendly and welcoming.

    Disliked: 

    One thing that could be improved was that the fire wood was quite damp, so our fires didn't burn particularly well. Whilst it is completely understandable that you're not allowed to bring your own wood on site, for this to be feasible it would be a good idea to store the wood somewhere it won't get damp!

  • Liked: 

    We normally camp in a tent but as it was forecast to rain all weekend we booked ourselves into the Hobbit Hideaway for a couple of nights. It was the cutest little place! The campsite itself was hard to find as it isn't well signposted but it was definitely worth it. All the huts are really spread out over the campsite and it really feels like you are alone in the woods. They also have a great attention to detail and have added so many nice touches. Would definitely recommend/come back!

Small, friendly site to explore Cornwall from08/09/2020

Reviewer's country: United KingdomRuth D.Confirmed

  • Recommend to friends   Visit again
  • Liked: 

    The location and site is beautiful.
    It is perfect if you want to escape and like a small, relaxed and friendly site.
    We wandered around the woodlands, found a tire swing over the river in the valley and made friends with the campsite cat.

    This corner of Cornwall forces you on a digital detox, so if you really really can't live without being connected via 4g, it's probably not for you as the phone coverage is tragic.

    The facilities are basic and clean and the owners are on hand to answer questions and help.

    This site is an excellent base to discover Cornwall from. If you want onsite entertainment, pub and shop, this isn't for you.

    Disliked: 

    I never had more than a lukewarm shower - I'm assured by other campers that there was toasty hot water, I just didn't experience it. If piping hot showers on demand is your thing, you'll be disappointed.

    The Eden project is walkable, but it's a good 45 minutes from the site to the Eden reception. A part of the way includes a winding stretch of road without a footpath. Not advised for families with young children.

Directions


Please note: All distances on this page are calculated "as the crow flies" - please check actual distance depending on your mode of travel using the Get directions button above.

Local attractions

Cornwall has hundreds of miles’ worth of walking and cycling trails, but a fine place to start is on the Saints Way, five minutes’ walk from Acorn – it’s a belter of a trip, even if you only do a few of its 27 miles (ideally those that deliver you to the Eden Project). Take to two wheels to cover local cycle trails such as the Camel Trail from Padstow or the gentler trip from the site to Luxulyan village; from here you can take the trains that run from Par to Newquay.

Five minutes in the car brings you to Cornwall’s south coast – the nearest beach is three miles away but you might also like to go dolphin and seal spotting from Mevagissey, or take the kids to one of the many family attractions around the coast like the Wingz Bird and Animal Sanctuary at Par.

National Trust houses and gardens are plentiful in Cornwall too: Falmouth’s Trebah Gardens should be a hit for all ages, and one of the very-must-sees in Cornwall is St Austell’s Lost Gardens of Heligan.

Must see

  • Eden Project (1.6 miles)
  • Lost Gardens of Heligan (7.2 miles)
  • Cornwall's Crealy Great Adventure Park (11.7 miles)

National Trust

  • Trerice (13.6 miles)
  • Carnewas and Bedruthan Steps (14.9 miles)

Cycle routes

Find local routes on the National Cycle Network - over 12,000 miles of cycling routes.
