Spacious and comfortable, Celandine is a luxury safari tent set in gloriously unspoilt and pretty countryside. This gorgeous retreat is the middle of three (the other two being Honeysuckle and Campion) that share communal picnic areas, a trampoline and a fire-pit, but it is set in its own peaceful space on a raised wooden deck, from where you can drink in the glorious views, with its own barbecue and picnic table to the side.
Celandine boasts a double bedroom, a double den bed and a twin bedroom, all with comfy beds and quality linens, and there is a well-equipped kitchen-area as well as a shower-room with a large shower, flushing WC and wash-basin. For cooking and heating you will find a toasty log-fired range, making this an ideal retreat at any time of the year.
Drive through the pretty country lanes of north Cornwall to find your luxury safari tent at the top of a tranquil meadow, with the River Kensey burbling at the bottom (the river is fenced but please do take care with children). From the shared parking-area, wheel your luggage along a mown path to the car-free site, where Celandine's seven steps (with a safety gate at the top) lead to its large raised wooden deck.
In addition to its three bedrooms, the tent has a fully equipped kitchen with a fridge (plus small freezer), sink, kettle and plenty of storage, a comfy sofa and a dining-table and chairs. An insulated floor makes sure you will be warm whatever the season. The owners and their free-range chickens live close by; there is also an honesty-shop on site selling both everyday essentials and locally made treats.
You won't run out of things to do here: there are plenty of beaches within a forty minute drive, or take a short walk to New Mills Farm Park, just down the road, where you will find petting animals, ride-on toys, play barns and more, as well as a super cafe specialising in great value local food to eat in or take home. In season, there is a little steam train that chugs to and from Launceston station. Or, of course, you can grill bangers on the barbecue, bounce on the trampoline or simply relax on your deck and enjoy gazing at the stars.
