This campsite is an extremely basic site for traditional camping only. I am not commenting on their 'glamping' business.

The access is very tricky & hard to find down a very narrow road with long gaps between passing places.

When we stayed there was not space on any day to turn round in the tiny site carpark so the access road needed to be reversed out onto going in the wrong direction, find somewhere wide enough to turn round and go back. So only come if you are confident reversing your car as some other road users refused to reverse.

The site facilities had everything we needed as long as you are happy with how basic they are.

There is a 'shed' with 2 separate small toilet cubicles including a sink (I assume these sinks are the 'washrooms') and 2 separate shower cubicles. All of which open their doors directly on to the field. There is no lighting, toilet paper or soap etc, so take your own!

In the woods there was also another shed with a sign saying fridge freezer on the door where you can freeze ice blocks etc

The cold water washing up area is just sinks under a roof with no walls.

The communal firepit area was really nice.

The facilities for children are for them to play in the natural environment and enjoy being outside in the woods & field. No other facilities.

All told as long as you are happy with how basic the facilities are and how in the middle of nowhere it feels you will like the site. It is definitely a back to basics camping experience.

Pros are the proximity to Eden Project, very quiet & peaceful & reasonably priced for Cornwall (although that's prob a case of you get what you pay for)

All told from a family of tent campers who like basic, quiet sites - this site was too basic for us with very difficult access!

But that will depend on your requirements for a site!

Just returned from a great week camping here. From original enquiry, the owners were really helpful. Our pitch was ample with space for the car and didn't feel cramped.

Area is great, Luxlyan Valley beautiful and well worth a walk along.

Positives - You are able to have fire which is great at the end of the day, to enjoy a drink & chat.

The showers - once understood, were fine & plenty of hot water.

Activities for families & children great

Tiny Negative -As only 2 showers, mornings were busy, but we learnt to wait until later, timed it right and not a problem.

All in all, a great place to stay and we hope to return soon.

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.

Thanks again Harry.

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!
