A couple of weeks ago we went down to stay in the Yurt Village at a lovely holiday park in Mawgan Porth, Cornwall. It’s called The Park and we absolutely loved our stay there. They have lots of different accommodation options ranging from caravans to luxury lodges and the park itself is a really nice size, small but with everything you need including an indoor and outdoor pool.
The yurt village is lovely, there are a few yurts with a communal one with a telly and sofas for chilling out. Then there are two toilet / shower blocks, a fire pit and a large communal kitchen block. Plus somewhere to do laundry, it’s all enclosed off with a gate and is up a little hill away from the rest of the park so the kids could just run around.
The yurt is very luxurious inside and has everything you would need / want including a table / chairs, wardrobe, log burner and even a telly. We had a big bed and two singles, all of which were really comfortable, you know I am very particular about comfortable mattresses 😉
This was one of the toilet and showers which was lovely and spacious inside.
Then the hot tub was just around the corner. This photo made it look like I was having a lovely relaxing time but you will see the behind the scenes in the next photo. I actually had both the kids asking me questions! Matt had the right idea and came over when they were asleep, I was too busy watching a trashy telly programme though. I won’t tell you which one although if you follow me on social media you might have a good idea 😉
Around the site there are a couple of play areas, an outdoor swimming pool and an indoor swimming pool / restaurant. We were so lucky with the weather as on the Sunday, despite the forecast saying cloudy, it was actually sunny all day long so we spent the day at the pool. The beach is only down the road but because we live by the beach it was actually more exciting to do something different and chill out by the pool. Matt didn’t get to do much chilling out though as he was on pool duty with the kids! There were really comfy sun loungers dotted around making it the perfect place to read a book on a sunny day.
We ate in the restaurant on the first night and were pleased to find clearly labelled vegan options on the menu. The food was good and the portions were HUGE! Even Matt was too full to eat it all and he is usually always hungry after finishing his food when we eat out.
This was taken in the communal lounge yurt.
This was the firepit area, which also had a clay oven.
On Sunday we headed into Newquay as it’s just down the road. We love The Beached Lamb Café there as it has lots of vegan options so we had lunch there then stopped at the supermarket to grab a few things for dinner. The communal kitchen was great for cooking in, the oven was huge and had everything I needed including large saucepans. Each yurt has a fridge and a big cupboard to store their things. There is also a dishwasher. It’s nice as there aren’t too many yurts so it doesn’t get too busy in there.
We made a rather random meal, samosas because Tiger likes them and pasta with salad and veggies sausages for us.
We did have a walk down to the beach because although we live near one, they are all so different and it would have been a shame to go all the way down and not see it. It’s a really lovely beach, good for surfing I think as the sea gets some good waves, unlike our beach which is always flat!
Thumbs up seemed to be the theme for all our photos during our stay, it’s a good way to try and get the kids to focus, Tiger looks like he focusing really hard in the photo below!
He’s grasped it in this one 😉
We all had a great time and there is something so fun about glamping. Thanks so much to Campsites.co.uk for arranging our stay and if you are looking for somewhere to go glamping then you can choose from SO many places over on their website so do go take a look and if you are looking for a break to Cornwall then do check out The Park.
We were going to stop off in Padstow on the way home as it’s just down the road but it was raining, it’s definitely worth stopping there if you haven’t been before. There are gorgeous beaches all around the area too. So many reasons to visit.
I made a little video of our trip which shows a lot more of the yurt village, as well as a full meltdown from Tiger over a banana on the car journey down there!! It also has some footage from our stop off at Bodmin Jail which was fab, so spooky. I wrote a whole post about it here.
