Glamping in Fal River Cornwall – the new way to holiday.
Glamping is the best way to mix the comforts of home with the essence of nature and the outdoors. You don’t have to spend a fortune for an idyllic location either.
Cornwall is home to several stunning glamping sites in a variety of locations. Check out our top 5 reasons to glamp below!
1. Location Location Location
As glamping is about being at the heart of nature, you're not going to be let down by location and setting. Beachside, riverside or surrounded by woodland, glamping sites and spots go hand in hand with beautiful surroundings. One of our personal favourites is the site at King Harry on the Fal River – check it out here.
2. The best of both worlds
Combine the great outdoors with the comforts of home. If you're not too keen on the idea of camping but you still want the sensation of being close to nature, then it's ideal. Forget rain, soggy sleeping bags and bent tent poles- experience nature without its inconveniences!
Think of the emissions spent when you stay in a hotel, B&B or self-catered house or villa – glamping may not be free of this, but it's certainly a more green alternative, being somewhere between camping and self-catered accommodation.
4. Alfresco dining
Being at the heart of nature means alfresco dining surely? Light the BBQ and enjoy diner in stunning surroundings. Here in Cornwall we've got some award-winning producers of cheese, meat, bread and beer – why not stock up before setting out? Example of these can be found at Picnic in Falmouth or The Courtyard Deli in Bell's Court Falmouth.
5. Value for money
A holiday where you can bring your kitchen sink with you, enjoy the comforts of home and experience some of the most beautiful locations around – a hotel or self-catered property with these qualities would cost you much more on average.
