Acorn Camping and Glamping: Special sunsets on site

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/motorcycles at the site. 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 bachelor/bachelorette parties permitted via Pitchup.com.

    How fun and unique the campsite was! We had such a fun time exploring the woods and all the little quirks you’ve added. Also liked how you have so many areas you can go and have a campfire and sit and relax. The facilities were great and clean. The owner was really helpful when our car wouldn’t start and helped us jump start! Will definitely be back and recommend.

    Disliked: 

    Would’ve loved some toilet paper in the loos- luckily we brought some but would be nice to have some provided if possible for those that may forget!

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 (2.5 kilometres)
  • Lost Gardens of Heligan (11.6 kilometres)
  • Cornwall's Crealy Great Adventure Park (18.8 kilometres)

National Trust

  • Trerice (21.9 kilometres)
  • Carnewas and Bedruthan Steps (23.9 kilometres)
