Our special Christmas getaway

We decided to be highly pretty unsociable this Christmas and just go away with our hairy child, aka Border Terrier called Baxter. We'd looked at lots of cottages but with couldn't find any small enough (and reasonably priced enough) for just two people and a dog.

After looking on Canopy & Stars we found a little place in near Launceston in North Cornwall called Spring Park. This seculded park tucked away in a small village houses a number of quirky and vintage cabins and huts. We chose to stay in Madien and Wisteria, a cute little camp featuring a wooden cabin where we had a living room, kitchen and bathroom and an old railway wagon where we slept!

Above and below: Kitty and Paddy made a real effort to make the place look festive. Lights adorned the pine trees that surrounded our camp and the inside was beautifully decorated with natural winter foliage and pretty hanging baubles.

We were so pleasantly surprised with our festive getaway, it was a lot larger than we'd expected. It was also packed full of vintage trinkets and decorations, everyday you would notice something new. 

We can't wait to revisit in the summer when we could toast marshmallows over the outdoor camp fire and bring along some friends to stay in the other quirky camps.
