Lazy Days

Lazy Days is a genuine steam engine drivers wagon, both strikingly painted on the outside and cosy on the inside. Set in a small orchard overlooking a paddock that is home to a few donkeys and surrounded by Cornish countryside, this relaxing glamping location is sure to create some special memories.

Situated in the small village of Mawla, just two miles from Porthtowan's popular sandy beach on the spectacular North Coast. In Porthtowan you can find a pub, beach café and village shop. The historic former mining town of Redruth with supermarkets, pubs and a cinema are also only two miles away. The locally popular Treleigh Arms is a similar distance. The Mineral Tramway coast-to-coast cycle trail and the South West Coastal Footpath are both within easy reach.

Entering from your own private grassy parking space into the meadow and along the orchard takes you to Lazy Days wooden steps. After marvelling at the exterior, step aboard and settle in. There’s a built-in 4'6" double bed with storage cupboards under and a separate built-in corner wardrobe. A small table and two chairs provide somewhere to sit in the day with a wall mounted TV/DVD player with Freeview. The carpet floor and electric fire effect heater really add to the warm & cosy atmosphere and on the warm summer nights, you can open the quaint little windows.

As steam engines moved from place to place they tended to 'leave the kitchen sink at home' and so the owner of Lazy Days has a solution. Just two metres away is a sturdy cabin with a well-equipped fitted kitchen with dining area and a separate shower room.  The kitchen includes a 2-ring electric hob, fridge with separate freezer compartment, microwave, kettle and washing machine. The shower room has an electric shower, toilet and handbasin with mirror & shaver socket over.

Outside, at the end of the cabin is a storage space for bikes and surf boards and a retractable washing line that runs from the cabin to the wagon. Lazy Days is located within the grounds of the owner's home but is positioned to ensure that guests have privacy.

All mains services are provided, electricity, water, waste etc. Rental includes bedlinen, towels, heating, and electricity. You may bring a tent and pitch it on the lawn next to Lazy Days by prior arrangement at £50 per week, please mention at time of booking if required. This is a non-pet and non-smoking property.

Lazy Days in on the same site, but separated from, Hannah's Haven (P463). A traditional shepherds hut, also sleeping two with a real cosy glamping feel.
