Rusty went above and beyond our expectations, we visited for our honeymoon and were delighted to find champagne and truffles in the fridge! As well as being in an amazing location, Rusty was comfortable, cosy and quirky. We would definitely recommend and book again!

October 2019

A cosy stay, simple and confortable. Wild and windy weather made the experience very interesting!

September 2019

Nice place to stay. Ideally situated for exploring the area, beaches and the Lizard.

August 2019

Sally and Jon are excellent hosts with very helpful local knowledge. We felt right at home wandering across their fields and took full advantage of their well stocked honesty shop. There is much to do in the area, or simply do nothing and just sit in the sun reading a book. The location is enchanting; the sunsets spectacular; the surf is always beckoning; and the locals always helpful, friendly and welcoming.

August 2018

Wonderful location! A great place to stay and relax for families.

August 2018

This facility offers the perfect chance for a complete getaway for a family of up to 16 members, without having to live in each other’s pockets, but the space to fully enjoy each other’s company.

Our stay at Rusty Tin Tent was heavenly. Our children could ramble about with freedom and we had the added luxury of wonderfully,comfortable beds, soft linen and hot showers after the end of a busy day walking to Porthleven and back.

Our evening spent in the meadows behind our tent, watching the sun go down and toasting marshmallows was magical.

Thank you for a fantastic stay. We will be back!

November 2016

Jon and Sue were so friendly and welcoming and got us checked in very quickly. They really have thought of everything to make any stay special including a cute little honesty shop on site. We celebrated our 10 year wedding anniversary in Rusty and didn't think for one minute that we would be so comfortable and cosy glamping in November. Once the log fire was roaring away we quickly forgot just how crisp it was outside. It was lovely to escape the trappings of technology and enjoy walking around the meadows, drinking hot chocolate on the veranda and gazing at the millions of stars in the night sky. All the little finishing touches that are provided from the tea lights and fluffy towels to the trug and biscuits just for the dog made our stay less like camping and more like a rustic home from home. Rusty is in a beautiful setting with meadows and a little wood to walk around. We saw some gorgeous sunrises and sunsets from the glamping site. Poldhu cove is a short drive away for a dog friendly beach with an amazing cafe. Great cliff path walk into Mullion with stunning scenery. We will definitely book again, worth every penny.

September 2016

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Rusty! Come rain or shine it catered for your holiday, sitting out on the decking or by the fire. Great location for a dog friendly holiday, lots of coast paths to walk and a dog friendly beach nearby. It was off grid with luxury! We had a really relaxing time.

September 2016

We loved our stay at the rusty tin tent! Great location and lovely accomodation. Will definitely be making a return visit in the future!

August 2016

An amazing unique Glamping holiday. A fantastic picturesque location with easy reach of some beautiful hidden coves and locations. Can't wait to return...

April 2016

Beautiful location. Comfortable place. We love Rusty!

March 2016

We enjoyed a wonderful family holiday here. The children (aged 4, 2 and 8 months) enjoyed running in the meadow, collecting logs for the stove and having a safe environment to play in. We enjoyed the quirkiness of the tin tent and all that 'living' in a tin tent brought. The local coastline was beautiful and we were able to enjoy these even at the beginning of March! We would highly recommend a holiday here.

A fantastic lifestyle experience for all the family.

June 2015

The property was simply fantastic - really fun place to stay in a location convinient for exploring the area. Also great place to simply spend time relaxing in. Would thoroughly recommend.

June 2015

We couldn't have wished for a more perfect holiday. From the accomodation itself to the beauty surrounding it, Rusty exceeded our expectations and really made our holiday special. We all (reluctantly!) left feeling thoroughly relaxed and unsuprisingly we are already talking about our next trip down.

October 2014

Very dog and family friendly. Very clean and tidy with all the cooking/living essentials needed :)

October 2014

Don't fancy camping but want to hang out away from everyday trappings, then this is the place to go. Comfy beds, plenty of outdoor space, everything you need to reconnect. A super idea - adults and children all loved it.

July 2014

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Rusty and will definitely be returning! Our 6 year old son said it was the best holiday he had ever had! Every member of our family enjoyed the trip. Thank you.
