General

  • Well-equipped glamping in spectacular surroundings near Penzance
  • Horse school, dressage arena and riding lessons all available on site
  • Within cycling distance of St Michael's Mount

'Glamping in stunning surroundings' is how the team at Rosevidney Glamping describes its spectacular little site five miles from Penzance: take a (long) trip here to find out of what they speak. (Hint: they're very right indeed.)

The safari tents here are splendidly set up, each with their own woodburning stove with a hot plate, ovens and a gas hob (for brewing essential early morning cuppas); a big cool box that's regularly topped up with ice packs; solar power lighting, and a twin USB socket and a 12v socket. There's also a tripod style barbecue, to light small open fires or to use with charcoal for cooking.

This is also an excellent place for horsey sorts, with a 60x40metre indoor school, dressage arena and jumping paddock right on site, and lessons available from a highly experienced horse handler. Horse riding is around in the surrounding area too: ask at reception for tips on where to canter.

The Rosevidney facilities include a hygienic and environmentally friendly composting toilet, a conventional toilet at the farm and a shower in a separate hut in the meadow.

The village shop and several local pubs are all within cycling distance.

Please note

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

The site does not accept breeds/crossbreeds listed in the Dangerous Dogs Act.

Please note, the tent can accommodate a maximum of four people in the tent. Additional guests are able to pitch their own tent next to the bell tent; please ensure you enter the total number of guests both inside and outside the bell tent to your booking.

Fantastic, Clean, Amazing Host 05/09/2017

    We stayed here and it was our very first camping/glamping experience every; and I can positively say we will be doing it again and hopefully visiting Rosevidney again next year.
    Phil is so welcoming and friendly and always on hand to help with anything you need. It's a great location to nearby beaches, landmarks etc. and we had an amazing time.
    The site is so quiet and such a beautiful setting - we went with family friends who had little children and it was safe enough for them to play within the meadow without being constantly watched.
    Highly recommend this place :-)

    Disliked: 

    As most of the reviews; the compost toilet really took some getting used to - the kids and the guys managed just fine but thank god for local pubs haha :-)

  • Liked: 

    The tent was large with plenty of space. It had everything we needed. The beds were comfortable and one shower and toilet per tent. These were located just outside. The location was perfect for St Ives or penzance. It was very central.

    Disliked: 

    A bit quiet for the kids. Only four tents to the field so not easy to make other friends.

    The relaxed atmosphere, the joviality of the owner and his absolute desire to help wherever possible and the furnishing was second to none!

    Disliked: 

    The ignorant guests who didn't respect anyone else and ran round the field screaming at midnight on our last night! Shame not everyone can behave courteously! The owners are so lovely and accommodating and it was just rude!

    Everything was lovely, apart from the weather and strong wind, which made us quite uncomfortable and cold during the night. Lovely place, lovely people at the stable.

    The safari tent was brilliant, cosy but big enough for all of us to enjoy it. Everything we needed to cook a meal for the family. The quiet rural location was lovely and Phil the farmer was extremely helpful!

Local attractions

Bring your bike: as well as sourcing supplies at the village shop and tipples at the local pubs, you'll also be able to reach famed Cornish landmark St Michael's Mount from Rosevidney Glamping, as well as national cycle trails close by. Surfing, kitesurfing and sailing are all easy to get to from here too: ask at reception for info and tips.

This part of the world is of course also famed for its smashing cliffside walks along the South West Coast Path, running for over 600 miles from Minehead in Somerset to Poole Harbour in Dorset. You'll be able to access it easily from most places along the coast; have a go at the St Ives to Pendeen hike (strong legs required), the walk around Cape Cornwall, or the one from Sennen Cove to Lamorna.

About five miles away, arty St Ives is home to the Tate St Ives gallery as well as several smaller arty spaces, the Barbara Hepworth Museum and Sculpture Garden, and – if arty stuff ain't your thing – four splendid sandy beaches too.
