have to admit, unless we’re larging it at a music festival camping holidays are not always high on our radar…Well now that might just change after discovering Pitchup.com, a website which features 5,000 outdoor accomodation sites in the UK and staying the weekend at Penbugle Farm in West Cornwall. But lets not go overboard here, it’s actually a little more glamping than camping…

Rather than a tent we opted to stay in one of the wigwams which come with mattresses but you do need to take your own bedding, linen and towels. No maid service here people. The wigwams do however have lighting, kettles, toasters, fridges, heaters and sockets for those REALLY important things like straightners and hair dryers.


The wigwams are pretty toasty (they are insulated) but you do need to be prepared to walk to the toilet and shower block. There’s also a communal kitchen where you can buy freshly laid eggs and local tea bags and jam to cook for brekkie and for dinner we’d suggest lighting a BBQ in the field (all wigwams have a picnic table)…but don’t even think about touching those lambs.

There’s also plenty to do around the site, after all you’re in Cornwall and the owners know everything about what’s happening in the area. For a short stay out of the ordinary Penbugle Farm ticks the boxes.

 The wigwams cost from £45 per night and can sleep up to five people.  Dogs are also welcome for an additional fee.  Penbugle Farm also features bell tent accommodation and grass pitches for those with their own tents.
