The Owner Says

Experience one of four of these larger roundhouses at this acclaimed glamping site in Cornwall. Each roundhouse is individually fitted and furnished to a high standard with luxury, modern interiors and a hotel-standard ensuite bathroom. The accommodation has a comfortable handmade double bed in the main area with sumptuous bed linen provided, an additional sofa bed for children, plus a separate cabin bedroom with adult sized bunk beds, so it's ideal for families and groups of friends. A fully-fitted kitchen inside the roundhouse provides everything you need for cooking and a bistro table and chairs can be used for indoor eating with an additional picnic table providing an al fresco option. There's also an en-suite bathroom inside each roundhouse and a beautiful hot tub just outside. Each larch wood roundhouse offers a central magnified sky port hole for star gazing at night.
A cosy wood burning stove and underfloor heating make these roundhouses ideal at any time of year, and towels, bed linen and all kitchen/cooking equipment are supplied, leaving you to enjoy an easy, hassle-free break.
Guests staying in the roundhouses are able to access all the other facilities of the glamping site, including games room, TV room, treatment room, outdoor pizza oven and communal camp fire. Or you can simply relax in your own space.
The four family roundhouses share their own enclave at this glamping site, which makes them ideal for a larger family gathering of up to 20 guests.
Outside of school holidays, automatic discounts are applied to couples booking the roundhouse, making a luxury romantic stay a totally affordable option.

Sorry, no pets allowed in this particular roundhouse.

The most warm welcome

This place is worth visiting. The owners were amazingly welcome. Especially with my 7 year old that was amazed by the animals and how they took him in to feed and pet them. We can't wait to come back again, the yurt had everything we needed and more.

Excellent family yurt experience

We had a brilliant time staying in the yurts. Everything we needed was provided and the owners were really helpful, customer service was excellent. The children loved the Freedom to play on the park, feed the animals and explore in a safe car free environment. Thank you for such a lovely weekend away.

Fantastic stay in the roundhouse

We had a brilliant time at East Thorne. The roundhouses are fantastic and really comfortable. Our girls loved feeding the animals and playing in the little playground. Really nice private sheltered site.


The yurt was immaculate. The hosts were so lovely and the bathroom was fantastic. Would definitely recommend staying there for someone who wants to ‘camp’ in comfort.

Everything was great

The welcome, the yurt, the facilities were all excellent and very very clean. Each yurt had access to their own shower and toilet wash room which in times of covid was incredibly reassuring. The site was quiet and the morning coffee from the little hit by reception was delicious. Would recommend anyone book especially those that have never glamped before.
