We have just come back from our stay at Acorn camping and glamping.
We (me, my wife and our two sons, both under 10 years of age) stayed for 4 nights in our Outwell Nevada M tent.
An excellent site for the true camper. Ria and Tony, the campsite owners, were friendly and helpful. They went that extra mile to ensure your stay was comfortable.
The site is set in a lovely part of Cornwall very close St Austell, and is walking distance from the Eden Project. The toilet/shower block was clean and modern, but beware not shower at peak times to avoid low water pressure!
There are plenty of woodlands on site for the children to explore and keep them occupied.
Highly recommended! Next time we will be staying for 10 nights!
I have recently returned from staying two nights in the hobbit huts which are a part of the acorn campsite. We booked to stay due to the fact me and my girlfriend were watching one of the Eden sessions, at the Eden project. The campsite is only a short walk away from the Eden project which made it forever more appealing. I knew upon arrival that it was going to be a very enjoyable stay as we were greeted by two lovely people: they were quick to show us around the campsite and were very knowledgeable about the surrounding area. We were then shown our hobbit it which was so much more than expect with cutlery pots pans and a camping stove provided, there was also a private shower block and toilet. It was all extremely clean. I would definitely look to return here and would recommend the site to all, particularly if you are wishing to visit the Eden project.
We stayed here in one of the Hobbit Huts for a walking weekend. The huts are amazing with everything you could need for your stay (you need to take bedding, toiletries and a gas canister for the stove). They provide everything else-cooking stove, pots, plates, mugs and cutlery, even rechargeable lanterns and pegs. The location is amazing and instead of cramming people in there are only 3 huts. We sat outside and were not overlooked at all. The mattresses were comfortable and we all slept well. Each hut has a private shower room with toilet and basin which was spotless and nicer than some hotels I've stayed in. Acorn camping is located about 5 mins walk from the Saints Way trail and a great place for a walking holiday. This is a brilliant place to stay and the Hobbit Huts are a real treat.
We stayed in the Hobbit huts at the site for two nights in August.
The location of the huts - and campsite - is brilliant, it is in a woodland valley a few miles from the Eden Project. The location is very peaceful and you feel like you have escaped. Although a little hard to find - the directions given by the owner were good, and because it is hard to find this is what makes it quiet. (Always good to get the grid reference then convert it to latitudes and longitudes to find it - a tip!).
Although remote-in Cornwall you are never too far to the main road and this was a good base to explore. We only had 3 days but saw the local area, nearby polkerris and Fowey and even managed a trip to Newquay.
We walked through the site, to the house Rock Cottage, where the owner of the campsite was very welcoming. She showed us our hut and bathroom and was very knowledgable about the local area and gave us some good ideas on what to do! Very friendly and accomodating welcome.
The Hobbit huts themselves are little wooden huts - 11 square metres, which have a futon and 2 smaller futons - so can sleep up to four. They also have two small tables and 2 benches. There were two of us staying on this occasion which left the hut spacious. The hut has little curtains, hangers and hooks and a shelf all the way round. The fouton was very comfy - we brought along bedding - next time would bring a sheet - we forgot! We had a very comfy sleep - only thing that woke us was the heavy rain!
You are provided with cooking equipment, stoves and she even sells gas for £2 - one lasted us the 3 days! There is an outdoor cooking area with a bench too. A couple of things I would advise to bring are, toilet roll, a washing up sponge - one is provided but got dirty and bin bags (useful to put in the door if you have muddy feet and to sit on if you are outside and it has been raining).
The bathroom and toilet room is amazing, the shower is hot and of a high pressure - better than my own one.
Overall I would recommend the hobbit huts, the location is lovely - also brilliant for kids, the kids hobbit huts nearby seemed to love the woodland. Although you are on a campsite and there are two other huts you feel like you have your own private space. I loved the welcome, the magic of staying in a hobbit hut and the location!
My partner and I stayed at this site last week and immediately on arrival agreed that we just had to leave a review for this fantastic place.
While searching for a site near the Eden Project to camp we stumbled across this place and their 'Hobbit Huts'.
At £40 per night we decided to leave the tent at home for a bit of glamping and I'm so glad we did.
On arrival the key was in the door to our hut which was clean and tidy. On the key ring was another key which opened our own private bathroom just a few meters away which was very large, clean and unlike any other facilities we have ever experienced. It had a toilet, small wash sink and large hot shower big enough for two!
The site owners came to make sure we were settled and knew where everything was, gave us charged lanterns and were very informative of things to do in the area.
The hut itself had a double phuton and two single fold up mattresses that doubled up as seats during the day. There is an outside cooking area for each hut (of wehich there are three) which provides two gas cookers PLUS all your plates, cups etc. You literally only need to turn up with sleeping bags and gas for the cookers.
The site itself is pretty much in the woods and was incredibly quiet, there is a large fire pit and seating area perfect for big groups.
The only negative point about this place is it's difficult to find, although keeping it glamping's best kept secret isn't really a bad thing. 10 out of 10 for everything! Plus only 1. 2 miles away from the Eden Project.
