My family’s love of camping in Cornwall started over 50 years ago. Visiting every summer, & travelling in a now much desired split screen VW camper. In those days the journey took a while, everyone had to get out of the campervan when it reached the climb up to Bodmin. Tales of comical camping moments: waking up to pigs in their tents, dog basket (with dog in it) floating past after a storm, all part of the fun! Thankfully facilities & technology have moved on somewhat, but our love of the outdoors remains the same. We created Ysella to gather with friends & family to celebrate, & to do it on the road, under the stars & around a campfire! With our Tent & Campervan hire want to help others to do the same!
In 2017 we bought a field around the corner from our cottage, & through native tree planting we help sequester carbon emissions created with tent deliveries & guest journeys. We are engaged in a programme of re-planting native trees such as sessile oak, beech, birch, alder, hazel & willow. These are planted at the edges of the field to leave the meadow in the middle free for wild flowers & grasses. The meadow is invaluable for invertebrates. We aim to improve our natural habitat, whilst combining our love of the outdoors with minimal impact camping. We take pride in being responsible & responsive. A small delivery charge goes towards tree planting to offsetting carbon used on travel.
