The Fir Hill's proximity to Newquay, and easy access to the main road arteries across Cornwall, means we are perfectly situated for you to explore Cornwall and all its spectacular tourist attractions.

The glampsite is best described as "An environmentally sustainable luxury glampsite"

​From the onset of the Estate's renewal project, energy and utility sustainability was at its heart. The occupation of the historic Fir Hill Estate didn’t survive to be on-grid and the site has never been connected to mains services.

Cornwall's sunshine made solar energy capture an effective solution to provide the energy needs of a luxury holiday glampsite. To date we have installed the following sustainable sources: 10 solar thermal panels and a Froling turbo log boiler set up to provide all the underfloor heating and hot water. There are 2 thermal stores which store all the hot water generated from the panels.40 ground mounted solar PV panels ready to generate 10kw of power A battery storage room which allows us to store the energy that has been generated during the day ready for use in the evening. Borehole and spring water supply.

After much research into the world of yurts, both online and through actual usage, we made the decision to go with a Mongolian style 'Gers' as the main accommodation for our guests at the Fir Hill.

Each of our yurts is made up of 5 material layers including a 12mm thick layer of 100% sheep wool felt, sourced from Mongolia, which keeps our guests warm in winter and cool in summer. As well as comfort, providing our guests with as much space as possible was a priority. Our standard yurt has a diameter of 6.6m with floor space of 34.4m2. The side walls are 1.6m in height and the roof is up to 2.9m at it’s highest point. Most other glampsites in the UK use smaller yurts, but the extra diameter that we provide creates as much as an extra 8m2 of internal space! Each yurt has its own personal cooking area with gas stove, cool box, running water for drinking and washing up, tea and coffee making facilities, food storage facilities as well as pots and pans. Each of our current 9 yurts is tastefully decorated and includes spacious accommodation for up to 6 guests consisting of a king size bed and two double beds. All bedding and bed linen is included.
