Things to do while glamping in Mevagissey 

The Eden Project 

No holiday in Cornwall is complete without spending a day at The Eden Project.

Activities and thrills - such as the amazing Skywire, exhibitions and events take place throughout the year, so you can be sure of finding something fun and interesting whatever the season.  

If you’re going by car from your glamping pod, it’s a thirty-minute drive along the B3273 - and if you build in enough time, you pass The Lost Gardens of Heligan which is well worth a visit.

The fishing village of Mevagissey

Make sure you spend some time in this beautiful village - just a short drive from your glamping site. There are lots of cafes and shops here to wander around in (and stock up on all your glamping essentials) and a pretty harbour too. This is where you'll get the ferry out to Fowey.

The Shack at Portmellon

You'll find this tasty cafe in Portmellon, which is just down the hill from Wigwam® Holidays Bodrugan. This cafe may be small but it packs in a big menu of tasty treats and delicious meals for hungry kayakers and explorers of Portmellon Cove and the wider area. Everything is homemade and locally sourced. You can also hire kayaks for sea adventures. 

St Austell

One of the largest towns in Cornwall, you’re spoiled for choice in this picturesque location. If you enjoy watersports, St. Austell Bay is an ideal place to spend a few hours boosting adrenaline. The woodland walks along the Pentewan Valley Trail are perfect for those looking for a calmer pace. If the weather doesn’t inspire you to search out the St Austell beaches, there’s plenty of tasty restaurants and shops to keep you busy. 

Caerhayes Castle and Gardens

This is a day trip not to be missed. Set in 140 acres of lush woodland gardens, there are a wide range of walks to enjoy - whatever your ability or time scales. Guided walks take you to unseen corners and you'll marvel at the secrets and history around the gardens and in the castle walls. Further afield, take a walk to Porthluney beach before heading back to the castle tea rooms and gift shop for souvenirs and delicacies.  

Fowey Estuary 

From Wigwam® Holidays Bodrugan to the Fowey Estuary it takes just over an hour to drive - past Charlestown and St. Austell, but we much rather a journey of a different kind. If you’re looking for unusual things to do while glamping in Cornwall, then jump on the Mevagissey to Fowey passenger ferry, to get a taste of life on the ocean waves. The trip out is thrilling - with lots of opportunities for seal and dolphin spotting. There have also been sightings of basking sharks and whale sharks, so don’t forget your camera!


An atmospheric and historic area - popular as a film location for the likes of Poldark and Mansfield Park. There are often tall ships in the picturesque harbour and for more maritime stories and exhibits, visit the Shipwreck, Rescue and Heritage Centre.
