Western Meadows Glamping is a unique experience for those who love camping, but like a little bit of luxury as well.
Our three Safari tents are situated in a stunning meadow next to the Kensey River in the Kensey Valley, West of Launceston and just minutes off the A30.
The setting is peaceful and tranquil allowing our guests the chance to unwind, relax and enjoy nature at its very best.
Inside the tents you will be pleasantly surprised by how spacious they are. Each are large enough to sleep 6 people plus a cot, comfortably and are all built on a raised sturdy insulated wooden base, giving you the best view across the fields and beyond.
For those of you who want a little bit more then look no further. Each are equipped with a large BBQ, situated on the covered veranda and NEW FOR 2021 – we have installed wood burning hot tubs by each tent for you to enjoy in the evening after your day’s adventures.

At the bottom of the meadow, we have a large trampoline, swings/climbing frame and a living willow dome. Along the fence by the Kensey River is 3 communal fire pit areas with beautiful views of the river. Each with either table and chairs, or seats to gather around in the evening and meet your fellow glampers. If you want a more intimate or peaceful evening you can always relax on your veranda. Note: we supply wood for the fire pits free of charge, however this must not be used in our wood burning range or hot tub as it has not been treated.
There is ample space for parking. Max. 2 cars per tent. Car park is situated at the field entrance and is on hard-standing slate chippings. We recommend you pull in to face the river near to the woodshed.
Our change over day is a Friday to give you the maximum usage for a weekend break. Arrival is at 1600 hours and departure is at 0900 hrs at the latest.
To get you started a small supply of tea, coffee, sugar and milk, freshly made scones, strawberry jam and clotted cream plus a refreshing bottle of wine for the adults will be waiting for you in your tent.
All towels, tea towels and bedding are provided along with a supply of basic cleaning products including dish cloths and scourer.
We also supply two large tubs of wood for the range cooker and hot tubs per week free of charge. Any further tubs needed will be charged at £5.00 per tub. Note: There is free wood for the fire pits however, this MUST NOT be used in the range cooker or hot tub as it is not treated.
There is mains power to part of the tents, with a supply of rechargeable torches and night lights to the bedrooms. Mains pressure hot and cold water is supplied to the kitchen and bathroom with double size shower, flush toilet and basin. The mains water here at Western Meadows is soft and lovely to drink.
