Glamping bell tent

Bell tent camping in Cornwall is certainly the most fashionable way to enjoy a holiday on the south west coast. Our bells really are beautiful, and each one is equipped with everything that you could possibly need for a comfortable holiday.

Each bell tent is furnished with a double bed, bedside tables, a full size futon to sleep two more, a chest of drawers, and storage baskets for all of your bits and bobs. 2 metre high door so higher side wall and more usable internal space and a heater for those chilly nights.

All of our bell tents are decorated with pretty rugs, quirky cushions and gorgeous throws. The bedding and duvets are incredibly comfortable; they are made with feather and down, as are the pillows, but we do have alternatives if requested. All will be ready for you after your journey to Cornwall!

Alongside your tent you will also have a cream gazebo which houses your outside kitchen, table and 4 chairs; whether you’re staying with family or friends, you can enjoy an outdoor dining experience with the gorgeous landscape of the Lizard Peninsula surrounding you.

Camping can be hungry work, so don’t worry, all cutlery, crockery, storage containers and utensils are supplied for you, so that you don’t have to drag the kitchen sink with you on your trip (unless you really want to!). We also supply a camp cooker, BBQ and firepit, we make sure there is enough wood for your first fire. If you run out there is more available locally or better still you can bring your own logs with you.

Fantastic open grass play area for children.

Edward - 13/10/2022

Stayed here as one family in 2 pitches next to each other - one in a caravan and the other in a tent. The pitch sizes were great and the site had all the facilities we needed. The four children had a great time running around and riding their bikes on the lovely grass area and we could sit and relax while keeping an eye on them. The site owners, Liz and Mike, are lovely and friendly, they left you in peace but were around if you needed anything. Although the site doesn't have a shop or cafe, it is a short drive to shops and beaches and a great base for exploring the lovely Lizard area. We would happily stay again if travelling to the area.

A good base from which to explore The Lizard Peninsula

Baxter, Brian - 03/10/2022

This was an informal, relaxed & friendly site. I received a very friendly welcome & was able to choose my pitch after a recommendation from the proprietor.I didn’t use all the facilities but the showers, toilet etc were clean & there was plenty of hot water. I wasn’t told of or didn’t find an info area which would have been useful for bus timetables, local attractions etc. The lovely coastal village of Cadgwith is just a 40 minute walk on a quiet road & across fields. The village has a dog friendly pub, selling real Ale & food using local produce and two shops, one selling pasties, basic supplies, snacks & souvenirs the other locally caught shellfish. There is a small dog friendly sandy beach as well as the main shingle beach on which the Fishing Boats were beached. The coastal path can be accessed directly from the village as well from the site itself via The Lizard Downs.It is a site I will return to in the future.

A bit basic but good location for exploring surrounding areas

Chappell, Jenna - 29/09/2022

Friendly owners, and the campsite was ok but in comparison to others that we have stayed, the facilities were basic and more effort could have been made to make the toilets, showers and communal spaces slightly nicer. The hot water ran out quite quickly one morning and the campsite wasn’t full so I can imagine it would run out even quicker if it was full and there is no lighting to find your way to the toilets at night. All in all it’s a good location and wasn’t terrible but is a bit more off grid and unkept in comparison to many other campsites we have stayed at. We did stay towards the end of the peak season so perhaps this is a reflection of the wind down after summer.

Little Trethvas is a family run camp site by Liz & Mike who will go out of the way to ensure you have a happy and pleasant stay.The camp site has static accommodation in the way of chalets, static homes a Shepherd's Hut and a retro caravan called Kitty. They also do Motorhomes, Caravans and Tent most with hook ups All the basic facilities needed for a pleasant stay toilets, showers fridge, freezer, washer and dryer. Michelle and myself stayed in the Shepherd's Hut with two Jack Russell (always check first about pets we did)and had a wonderful holiday which we extended on some of the most beautiful Cornish coastline and we found the local people to be warm and friendly which is not always the case elsewhere in the in this country, plenty of walks, walking boots advised and within striking distance of Marazion Penzance and St Michael Mount and Falmouth two lovely places to visit. We'd just like to say a big thank you to Liz & Mike for a wonderful stay, we will be coming back and soo

Tired…..

Wilkes, Trudy - 07/09/2022

Little Trethvas is in need of some TLC, it was run down, rubbish in the bushes around the pitches, cobwebs hanging from doorways and windows, damp walls and rotten smelling wooden boards to stand on.My main reason for not returning is the Cockerel that woke us up at 5am every morning. It was not fun and made us all very tired, not what you want from a camping holiday!

Quiet little haven on the Lizard

Ray, Malcolm - 04/09/2022

The owners are incredibly friendly. There are turkeys, chickens & Guinea pigs to look at & chick cuddling is a lovely part of the day for kids. The location is ideal for a peaceful Cornish holiday. The only downfall we found were the toilets & showers: there were plenty of them & the actual sinks, toilets etc were obviously cleaned BUT the buildings themselves were not. There were masses of spiders & webs everywhere - my particular phobia so a problem for me.
