Barefoot Hobie

Near Mullion, Cornwall, England

A terrific safari tent with all you could need for a comfortable stay, sat in a wildflower meadow just a few minutes’ drive from two great beaches.

The epitome of luxury camping, Hobie is a large, stylish safari tent, nestled in a peaceful seven-acre wildflower meadow, within an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, just a few minutes’ drive from two fabulous beaches. Inside, it has been equipped to the highest standard with high quality sprung mattresses, luxurious bed linen, beautiful woollen throws, soft towels, reindeer hides, lanterns, designer dining chairs and a fully stocked inventory. Sleeping 6 (plus a baby) it offers the perfect rural family retreat.

There are two bedrooms, as well as a delightful double den bed towards the back of the open plan living area, a wood-fired range (for cooking and heating), a dining table with room for all the family and a sitting-area. All that, and the kitchen sink! A wooden annexe at the back of the tent houses a double hot shower/wet-room, a cloakroom with flushing WC and a storage area, complete with a fridge, kettle and double power socket.

Outside, you can get back to nature and explore the surrounding fields – discovering the small wooded copse with rope swing and hammock, light up a barbecue or just sit back and relax on the deck. Your only near neighbours are one other safari tent and a converted shipping container, though each has their own areas. There is plenty to see and do nearby too, from surfing and walking to quant fishing villages.

Open from 1st April - 6th November with a minimum 2 night stay. Prices range from £74 - £415 a night. Dogs welcome.
