Cornish Tipi Holidays - Thermo Tent Escape

Wake up to the sound of birdsong, go swimming before breakfast in the clear water of a secluded lake. Cook your bacon and eggs over an open fire while you plan your day, or just laze it away in the peace and quiet of your own personal tent. You can always go fishing tomorrow, and walk along the cliffs the day after that…


The tent itself 'The Crua Tri' has more than 13 times the insulating power of a regular tent. This means being much warmer in cold conditions and much cooler in hot climates. The Crua Tri also will also reduce noise by up to 25dB, which is the equivalent of reducing a loud conversation to a muffled voice. And, the insulation means a darker environment when the tent is sealed up – which is very much welcomed when looking for a more peaceful sleep.

It has 2 'bedrooms' which can sleep 3 people happily, a living space and an outdoor porch area.

Based at Cornish Tipi Holidays/Weddings also known as Tregildrans Quarry. The site is unique. A woodland valley folded around a clear, spring-fed lake created from the old quarry. The hut is at the top of a secret 20 acres clothed in ferns and bluebells, oak and meadowsweet. Undisturbed by modern agrochemicals and herbicides the natural ecosystem has flourished, providing a thriving habitat for flowers and butterflies, birds and mammals.

It’s a place a world apart from the rush and clutter of the modern holiday experience, with an atmosphere that makes you forget the world outside, and just lounge, ramble, or potter about in a boat.

The tent itself is situated in a recently reclaimed part of the site on the old railway line which was taken out in the 60's, guests will have full access to the whole site & all its faculties. 20 acres of woodland to explore and a freshwater lake to swim, boat and fish in. As well as your own private tent pitch.

Please be aware that the guests need to bring their own bedding, food and eating equipment (plates, cutlery, pans).

The tent is equipped with 2 X blow up mattresses, rugs, a couple of lanterns, cool-box & camping cooker (2 gas hobs with grill).


Guests will be greeted & shown into their tent by one of our site wardens. Once guests have parked their car (in the mini car park) they will have to walk about 1 minute down a footpath with their luggage. Then they are free to explore the whole site.


Staff are always on site to lend a hand with starting a fire or which way to the shops. Guests can interact as much or as little as they like with staff.

- Smoking is fine outside or around the fire pit.

- We ask guests to respect the site as a whole.

- Guests must be aware that if they book without making contact beforehand there maybe a wedding during their stay.

- Check in is from 2pm & we must have a designated time of arrival so guests can be met.

- Check out is by 11am.

- We request car details and registration in advance.

- Please contact us during your stay if you need any help or advice

- Please also be aware that the site is also a wedding venue, if guests do not check with us first their trip may fall over a wedding. The tent is in the top part of the site close to where the wedding reception is held, therefore if staying with us over a wedding you may hear music on the breeze until midnight.



It is a perfect spot for camping and nature lovers! Don't miss the opportunity to swim in the stunning lake! There are also free kayaks and boats!

Great place to spend with your friends/family. There is a place to have a BBQ if you are a BBQ fan, lovely lake to have a swim or a quick boat trip(both free). Other tents were there during our stay but they are all set in a private pitch so you don't have to worry about privacy. Everyone so friendly. I 100% recommend. Thank you for having us. Great communication as well with quick replies to my messages or questions. We stayed 4 of us

The stay is really good.. As I'm the first time traveller, I missed to carry duvet or sleeping bag so I suggest Airbnb or tent host to detail in the description that it's the responsibility of traveller to carry sleeping bags. Thank u..

The site is beautiful and lake a real plus for swimming and boating but we still felt the charge for a night in an empty tent with only lilos and without cooker/kitchen equipment was quite steep, other reviewers would appear to feel the same. Enjoyable stay overall but a few points which were really unacceptable, and to be honest made us feel really fed up and have driven us to write this review... On two occasions in only 3 days we were at the lake when staff appeared and told us we had to leave... the first as a guest wanted to propose and wanted the lake to himself, and the second time was because wedding guests wanted the lake to themselves for photos. We and the other families there at the time had to pack up children and kit and leave immediately to lug everything back up the hill to the tent. As we were also paying guests, we all found this pretty unfair. Leaving the lake free for wedding photos would have been no problem at all but I would suggest to management that the staff need to give other guests warning of when the lake will be off limits.. perhaps a timetable of sorts on the reception notice board. As the uniqueness of the lake appears to be the main excuse for the expensive nightly charges it should not be unavailable without notice. The other major problem was noise from a wedding. We were advised after booking that there was to be wedding on the last night of our stay and to expect 'music on the breeze till midnight' which we accepted as not a problem. However out tent was close to the wedding and the noise was full blast and loud to the point it was louder than our conversation so we were unable to sleep. It did stop at midnight as promised but 'music on the breeze' was not an accurate description. In summary, a stunning place to stay, the lake and grounds beautiful, a bit overpriced but worth it if you are allowed to make the most of the lake but steer clear on wedding days at it seems everyone else who has paid to camp there comes way down the pecking order on these days.

We are so pleased that Sarah's family of 5 chose to come & stay with us again this year & that they found the lake as beautiful as ever. We are of course very sorry that being asked to leave the lake for x2 30 minute slots in 4 days was such an annoyance - we will also take the point on board that a notice at reception on wedding days giving an approx time that the bride & groom may want to take their wedding photos at the lake is a really good idea. Its something we've only done verbally before but it makes perfect sense that sometimes families want to plan their day & the lake is often a big part of that - so thank you very much for the feedback & we will be putting this into practice with immediate effect! Marriage proposals are a bit more of a wild card - we had 2 the week you stayed, but only one of them wanted us to set the scene with flowers, candles & champagne on a floating pontoon - oh & nobody else around! We did oblige as its such a special occasion but are very sorry if anybody else felt put out at the time. Rarely do we have an issue with music from our weddings but depending on the weather, wind direction & location of pitch the music can of course seem louder or quieter - once again apologies if it seemed too loud. We have very strict sound limits & staff are on hand throughout all wedding evenings - it doesn't bother most of our regular campers but we quite understand that some guests may prefer to come when we don't have a wedding happening. In terms of prices we feel that £90 per night (Sarah paid a little less than most as a valued repeat customer) for a family of 5 in a 6 berth thermo tent with Turkish rugs on the floor, little table inside, picnic table outside, private pitch with standpipe, firepit etc & all swimming, boating & fishing thrown in, is quite a bargain given our normal camping prices (ie bring your own tent) on a similar pitch would have been £77. Just for comparison it may be interesting to note that day ticket fishing on a trout lake in the UK for 1 rod is anywhere from £25-£30 - & you are limited on what kind of gear you can use & how much you can catch! If you fancy a trout for supper you won't get a better deal - & of course great swimming & camping too :)

Thoroughly enjoyed our short but sweet stay. The weather wasn't on our side but the thermo tent did exactly as it said on the tin and we enjoyed the sounds of wind and rain, whilst snuggled up and very cosy. No electricity was very enjoyable for a weekend and facilities were all clean and in working order. Will most certainly be returning in the not too far future. Thank you :)

Staying in a tipi/tent with family or friends, living close to the earth and the rhythm of nature, is an extraordinary experience. It’s a mixture of old fashioned camping in a beautiful place, with a very modern desire to be more environmentally friendly than just about any other…
