Cornish Tipi Holidays

our site: Tregildrans Quarry

The site is unique. A woodland valley folded around a clear, spring-fed lake created from the old Tregildrans Quarry. Our tipis are dotted about this secret 16 acres clothed in ferns and bluebells, oak and meadowsweet. Undisturbed by modern agrochemicals and herbicides the natural ecosystem has flourished, providing a thriving habitat for flowers and butterflies, birds and mammals.


It’s a place a world apart from the rush and clutter of the modern holiday experience, with an atmosphere that makes you forget the world outside, and just lounge, ramble, or potter about in a boat.

You Choose

Our tipis are arranged sympathetically around the valley so that we can offer a sense of both privacy and community to groups of all sizes. You have a choice of medium (sleeps 2-3 if one is a young child), large (sleeps up to 6) and extra large (sleeps 6-9 if some are young children). These can be booked either in the community space of the Village Fields, where you will have neighbours, or in your own clearing with a little more seclusion on a Private Site. We also have three double Private Sites where friends and family can book two tipis or bell tents together.

Larger groups often book several tipis grouped together in a Village Field setting, or book part or all of the entire site for courses, workshops or weddings (see weddings & honeymoons and events/groups).
