Classic Cottages adds luxury camping to its portfolio
The UK’s leading independent cottage holiday company, Classic Cottages, is adding camping in style to its portfolio of over 700 gorgeous coastal and country properties across Cornwall, Dorset, Devon and Somerset.
Its two new super-trendy, gigantic safari-style tents – Hobie or Woody (each sleeping four to six – two bedrooms plus den beds in the living area) – are located in a blissful Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty on Chymder Farm, near Mullion on the Lizard Peninsula in South West Cornwall.
Anthony Skitt, Managing Director of Classic Cottages, says: “Guests will be treated to the finest camping experience. Be warned: if you like roughing it, this might not be for you!”
The spacious tents – far enough apart for privacy but also suitable for two groups holidaying together – are elevated on wooden platforms and equipped to a top-notch standard, including a wood-fired cooker that doubles as a heater if required, enamel crockery for eating indoors or out, quality sprung mattresses, linen bedding and the softest towels.Read the full article...
