Budding scholars, get ready to blossom. Acorn Camping and Glamping in Cornwall’s Luxulyan Valley (your first lesson will be learning how to pronounce that) is an artfully environmentally friendly site with courses for all sorts. Get back to basics with an art, craft or sculpture workshop, indulge your inner clown by picking up some circus skills, or go all modern and pumped with alfresco Zumba.
Kids can scavenge about on a woodland hunt and learn how to make dens and build fires, nosy at the local wildlife and build their own mini campsite for the valley’s insect inhabitants – and fiction fans of all ages can listen enthralled to the storyteller who visits in summer. We don’t remember school ever being this cool...
The Luxulyan Valley is a World Heritage Site and has an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty 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 to investigate, all centrally placed to some of Cornwall’s most famed attractions – the Eden Project is just a mile away and the beaches of Par Sands and Polkerris within a few miles.
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 campsite cooking (pick up some logs from the site owners). The site in general is non-electric but there’s a light on all night to guide to back to your tent, and facilities include two loos, two hot water showers, two 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 non-electric on a gently sloping three-quarters of an acre: park at the site entrance and offload your gear, or park by your tent if weather permits.
The site is open all year round, but sorry, but because of the local wildlife, Acorn Camping and Glamping can’t accept dogs.
