From £32 per person per night

Sleeps 2 people

Glamping in Cornwall: Our tantalising treat of a totally tremendous tin tabernacle is truly terrific. It sits in some of the prettiest countryside you'll ever come across - and even has its own private hot tub.


We're fanatical about our amazing tabernacle - its unique style and high-end luxury is gorgeously glorious and ever so slightly bonkers. In the style of 19th century prefab travelling churches, it's meticulously hand-crafted from rust-proof and water-tight corrugated tin and features a screen made from reclaimed ecclesiastical shutters, a bespoke stained glass window and - wait for it - its very own pointy bell tower.

What do you get inside? Well, this exquisite bolthole for two (and maybe a small baby) takes luxury camping to a whole new level, impressively fitted out with underfloor heating throughout, a Hobbit wood-burning stove for ultra cosy toes, Farrow & Ball paints with gold leaf detailing, opulent botanical wallpaper designed by the ultra-cool Timorous Beasties, a super deluxe bed with gorgeous linens, and an intriguing mix of books, works of art, antique and vintage finds and good-looking modern comforts. It's so stylish it will take your breath away, but you'll also be wowed by the en suite shower-room with its double shower cubicle, large heated towel rail, basin with hot running water and, of course, a proper flushing loo.

Could it get any better than this? Well…outside on the wraparound deck is a sheltered and private hot tub, just perfect for a soothing soak and overlooking the most incredible scenery. The Tabernacle sits in a very special setting; one half of a pretty meadow surrounded by mature trees and Cornish hedges with views towards rolling hills and lush fields. The other half is home to The Observatory - both have their own separate spaces, entrances and parking areas and privacy is ensured by wooded copse that creates a natural screen between the two. Baa, moo and too wit, too woo, the sights and sounds of the countryside are all around you here. At dusk, relax and watch the spectacular sunsets as you barbecue on the chiminea, warmed by its flames as you spot the stars coming out one by one in the endless sky. All in all, this is definitely one not to miss. Just look at the glowing reviews!

Out and About

From the Tabernacle there's a lovely woodland walk that takes you to a babbling stream, or the village of Lanreath is only a mile away. It's just a hop, skip and jump (well, a short drive, anyway) to the harbour town of Looe or the pretty fishing village of Polperro, and you can take the Bodinnick Ferry across the water to Fowey, with its boutique shops, fabulous cafés and picturesque terraces of fishing cottages. Or else you could explore the South West Coast Path, the beaches at Talland Bay and Lansallos, or the lovely Boconnoc Estate with its beautiful gardens and miles of pathways to walk or cycle.


Steps into open plan living-room with kitchen, dining and bedroom areas. Wood-burner with hot plate, 2 ring gas hob, fridge and king-size bed. Shower-room with shower, WC and wash-basin.
