Cornish Tipi Holidays

a greener holiday

We want to offer our guests a really sustainable holiday. A return to real camping means the lowest possible impact on the land and environment. Our carbon footprint is so low that our tipi poles don’t even break the surface of the earth.

In a world talking excitedly of calculating your emissions, off-setting is becoming big business. Stay with us, and you can genuinely pat yourself on the back. Your footprint while here could only be bettered by a survival expert. We source all our wood and other materials locally and employ local staff wherever possible. See our ethical trading policy.


Soon you realise that life in a tipi is less complex and far less wasteful. Suddenly you are preparing a supper of freshly caught lake trout on your own fire; no intensive farming, no packaging, no air miles, no exploitation – just a gleaming fish and your own quiet satisfaction.

We are members of Sustainability SouthWest & the COAST Project Network. We are also waiting categorization for the Green Business Tourism Award and feature in both Alastair Sawday’s Special & Green Places To Stay; amongst a plethora of other media, press and website reviews, see testimonials & reviews.
