Un­der the stars

En­joy the last ves­tiges of sum­mer with a glamp­ing hol­i­day

Cornwall Life - - HOLIDAYS -

Eke out the last of the sum­mer with a hol­i­day un­der can­vas. There’s no bet­ter free­dom than em­brac­ing the Great Out­doors: fill your lungs with fresh air ev­ery morn­ing, read books and catch up with friends all day long and sit by the camp­fire in the evening.

Take life at a slower pace this Septem­ber so that you’re ready to launch back into work and school af­ter a long sum­mer re­lax­ing in the sun­shine. Glamp­ing is a great way to switch off and for­get about the stresses and strains of ev­ery­day life.

Gather to­gether a group of friends and visit Western Mead­ows in north Corn­wall.

Just off the A30, this glamp­ing site is a great base for ex­plor­ing the county. The site has three sa­fari tents to choose from; Honey­suckle, Ce­landine and Cam­pion. Each tent has a fully equipped kitchen, en suite bath­room and plenty of space for 6 peo­ple to re­lax.

‘Switch off your phones and make the most of each other’s com­pany.’

Switch off your phones and make the most of each other’s com­pany. Share sto­ries about new jobs and lat­est ad­ven­tures while find­ing some time to ad­mire the nearby stream and lis­ten for the toot of the steam train. Plan a cook­ing chal­lenge and get ev­ery­one to take it in turns or sim­ply lace up your boots and head off on a long walk into the coun­try­side. With noth­ing but each other for en­ter­tain­ment, you’ll re­dis­cover those hi­lar­i­ous mem­o­ries from so long ago and make your own fun in the pretty mead­ows sur­round­ing this tran­quil place to stay.

In the evenings, gather around the firepit and make s’mores un­der the starlight. Take on the chal­lenge of be­com­ing am­a­teur as­trol­o­gists, name the con­stel­la­tions over­head and then re­name them to what you think they look like. If you’re feel­ing par­tic­u­larly spooky, tell ghost sto­ries in the dark and scare some­one silly.

Bring friends away for a hol­i­day to this peace­ful site and en­joy plenty of fun and laugh­ter to­gether. Round off the busy sum­mer with a re­lax­ing break with your favourite peo­ple in the Cor­nish coun­try­side.
