Glamping With A Beautiful View; Seaforts Yurts in Cornwall
The Rame Peninsula is quickly becoming my favourite place in Cornwall; from the quietness, the hidden spots and the intense beauty. Based high up above Kingsand and Cawsand, you’ll find Maker Heights. Maker Heights is an old military area which has been thoughtfully converted into a brilliant camping complex. They have kept the original facades to the buildings to tastefully honour the history here but tucked within the complex is a beautiful space to enjoy. The area is split into two and on the far end you’ll find Seaforts who offer glamping bell tents, a camping field, cafe and yoga studio.
There are several tents throughout the field but all have the perfect amount of personal space so you can easily forget there’s anyone else around. Each set up comes with a tent, a decking area, private picnic space with table and fire pit plus an incredible view. There are several different sizes of tents, some offering a separate area which is great if you have children.
One fantastic thing about Seaforts, is the tent comes with a power bank. Charged by solar, you have a battery pack to charge your phone, use the lights and plug in anything that you require.
The shared facilities are also fantastic, I was really blown away by how clean and sleek these were. When staying on site, you have a fob which allows access to this private block. Each cubicle has a hot shower, sink and toilet plus clean towels for your use. Just outside is a sink which has cold drinking water for your use throughout too.
On site they also have a cafe which opens for breakfast and lunch plus evening tapas on certain nights. We used the cafe for breakfast and the tapas evening. Both were great, the food was really good and the service is really lovely. There’s inside seating in the beautifully decorated old Guard House and loads of outside seating to take full advantage of the view.
The location of Seaforts is also amazing, being just above the quaint twin towns of Kingsand and Cawsand. A short stroll from the site and you’ll reach the coast path where you can head down into the town or follow it over to Mount Edgecumbe. We opted to head into the town first and then followed the path to Mount Edgecumbe country park to explore before hitting the road to complete a circular walk back.
The walk to Mount Edgecumbe is beautiful and relatively flat. The country park has a stunning manor home plus a courtyard with a cafe and little shops. We stopped off at The Farriers cafe for some lunch in the sunshine.
We absolutely loved our stay at Seaforts and highly recommend staying here. The location is perfect to park up and leave your car for the whole visit, with so much on site and within walking distance.
