Sleeping options at this new retreat in a former quarry range from tree tents to pods on legs. It’s perfect for surfers, coastal walkers and anyone who loves ‘roughing it’
• Plus more unusual camping options
In a disused slate quarry on Cornwall’s north coast, we follow a rough track along a high ridge of old spoil heaps, picking our way through thickets of gorse, heather, wild honeysuckle and ripe blackberry. Beyond the layers of shale that fall away from the ridge, we can see the Atlantic, the skull-like shape of Gull Rock by Trebarwith Strand and, in the distance, the Mouls, a dot of an island off Polzeath’s Pentire Point.
