We all love the idea of camping with the kids… but the reality can be a little different. So, at Glynn Barton we have designed the ultimate Glamping Experience for families. Coffee at the touch of a button, a fully fitted kitchen for snacks on tap, running hot water for a long soak in the bath or shower, a decked terrace overlooking your private fire pit / BBQ with a private hot tub and not forgetting access to all of Glynn Barton’s magical facilities. This is glamping… the Glynn Barton way!

We have two luxuriously appointed canvas lodges which are the size of the average UK house!!! They are spaced 15m apart.

Enjoy your space!

Our cottages have been named as the Best Self Catering in Cornwall 2021!


Each lodge has a King bedroom and a Triple room (1 x bunk bed and 1 x single bed).

What's Included

Your Holiday with us

Your Living area
Luxurious accommodation with access to all of our facilities

We all need a little space on holiday and our canvas lodges have been designed with that in mind. Sink into the large sofa or grab a bean bag to nestle in front of the wood fired log burner. After a day out in Cornwall, catch a few moments to read or snuggle up under a warm and cosy blanket in front of the Smart TV. We all need a little WIFI from time to time! Or grab a game from the playbarn and take in some family time. 

Kitchen & DIning
Everything your family needs at mealtime!

Each lodge has been designed with family dining in mind. The kitchen is fully fitted with a large fridge/freezer, sink, hob, oven, dishwasher, (yes that’s right!) Nespresso machine and all the crockery you could possibly need! There is also a firepit/BBQ off the deck for cooking up something delicious. There is a large family kitchen table inside as well as an area for outdoor dining on the deck.

Bedroom & Bathroom
Our lodges can sleep up to five

Each lodge has a King bedroom and a Triple room (1 x bunk bed and 1 x single bed). There is limited space for a cot. We provide 10.5 tog duvets and all linen, as well as cosy blankets to snuggle down under. We also have hot water bottles and radiators in each bedroom to keep you warm whatever the weather! Our glamping lodges are feather free!

Our bathrooms are fitted with a freestanding bath, shower, sink, heated towel rail and flushing loo. All bath linen is provided. If you require swimming pool towels, these are available to hire (£3 per towel per stay).

Outside Space & Dining
13 acres of woodland in an AONB!

Kick back, grab a glass of wine and enjoy the view! We are lucky to be set in 13 acres of woodland in an area of outstanding natural beauty and WOW is the Glynn Valley beautiful. It’s a great spot for watching the sun go down or stargazing (the stars are AMAZING). The large deck area at the front of the tent is home to a family dining table, sun loungers and the all important hot tub. When the weather is really nice, roll up the front of the tent completely for an indoor/outdoor living experience. There is a firepit/BBQ cooking area in front of your lodge. Make sure you spot the Hot Chocolate station in the lodge and toast some marshmallows over the fire. Charcoal, marshmallows and chocolate are available in our little shop.

A kids’ paradise!

We’d rate the holiday at Glynn Barton Cottages a 5. Our 3.5 YO daughter would say a gazillion 🥰 She absolutely LOVED it! It is a kids paradise… done with style. And such a lovely location. Everything was perfect with the cottage, so comfortable and clean, and have everything you needed, and more. And the activities available on site are outstanding. Loved the animal feeding and campfire experiences in particular. There is so much to do! For adults as well as children. We didn’t get through it all. Need to stay for longer next time. Pippa and James are brilliant with the kids (and adults!) You can tell how much they love what they do. We will be back for sure!! Thanks for a wonderful week and great memories.

Everything thought of

Amazing. Beautiful accommodation with everything thought of, fantastic responsive hosts who help with anything you need and everything your kids could want all on your doorstep. We went for a week and didn’t leave once…it was blissful being able to just walk out the front door and know our toddler was safe and having the time of her life. We’ll definitely be coming back. Absolutely fantastic.

Perfect for our children under 4!

We couldn’t recommend Glynn Barton highly enough! With two children under 4 years old, we’re always looking for child friendly places to stay with plenty of facilities onsite and nearby attractions. Glynn Barton offers everything a family would need. We’ve now visited twice and had a wonderful week both times. The cottages are lovely and equipped with everything. The swimming pool is fantastic and all the play equipment is just ideal.

Our next trip is already booked!

A little slice of heaven! We have been coming to these same cottages for a number of years & it never fails to delight as Pippa & James are constantly evolving and updating the cottages and surroundings, whilst always focused on improving our experience. The freedom of the breathtaking views, the delightful animal feeding! The fun-filled maze offers many games, the community experience of mixing with others, playing on the fort, marshmallows around the fire, swimming & hot tubbing….I could go on! My children are 9 & 14 and never tire of the pull of Glynn Barton and neither do we. Our next trip is already booked!

Could not be better for kids

Second time we have been and you honestly cannot get a better holiday for toddlers in the UK Everything is thought of, and provided. The animal feeding hosted by the owners, who are parents themselves, could not be better catered to children The grounds are gorgeous, with so much on site to do. Also just 40 mins from popular beaches like Padstow. This year we went during COVID and felt safe at all times. The pool had to be booked and each time we had it to ourselves. Honestly just perfect. Can’t wait for next year, such a treat!

They didn’t want to leave

We really enjoyed our holiday at Glynn Barton, the boys loved it and they didn’t want to leave! I think they especially liked the social side of the holiday, playing with the other children and making new friends. There were lots of opportunities for them to do this with the way the cottages were set out onto the garden square and the morning animal feeding.
