Hidden away in a woodland valley and neighbouring a fresh, spring-fed lake, Cornwall Tipi Holidays features 20 North American style tipis, all with spacious interior and situated less than 2 miles from the coast. Inside, the décor has a simple bohemian touch with warm Turkish rugs and candlelit lanterns. Spend your days in the peace and quiet, go boating at the lake and gather round the fire at night telling stories and enjoying some freshly cooked food. Explore nearby towns such as Port Isaac and you’ll come back refreshed and appreciating the simplest of pleasures.
In the heart of Pembrokeshire National Park, resides Fishguard Bay Resort which offers accommodation options from cute glamping pods to luxury lodges.
