Overview

YHA is the official on-site glamping accommodation provider for the Eden Project, one of Cornwall's most recognisable attractions. YHA Eden Project is a unique place to stay and is perfectly in tune with its eco-friendly surroundings.

The site has been redesigned as a camping and glamping location for 2022, offering the perfect opportunity to get closer to nature on your break. Hire one of our quirky Airstreams, bell tents or Landpods for a memorable night’s sleep under the stars. Wild camping is available for the Eden Sessions music events too!

Due to the unique nature of YHA Eden Project, this site is not suitable for groups larger than 16 people. We do have an alternative location nearby, which is perfect for groups, YHA Boswinger is just a 30-minute drive away.

We're busy transforming YHA Eden Project into an exciting new glamping location for spring 2022. Images show the accommodation that will be available, though these pictures were taken at a different YHA site.

Accommodation at YHA Eden Project

Airstreams

Enjoy protection from the elements with a stay in one of our unique Airstreams. Our Airstreams comfortably sleep 2 people in a double bed, or 3 with an additional single bed.

Bedding, heating, USB charging points, storage, lighting and space to sit and relax are all included. The perfect glamping option for everyone to enjoy. Our Airstreams also include a BBQ firepit.

Premium bell tents

Our spacious bell tents are fully kitted out with a double bed and three single futons and can sleep up to five people with all bedding included.

There is eco-friendly solar lighting and comfy bean bags for you to chill out on during the day, plus a coffee table and rugs. Premium bell tents also have the addition of a woodburner to keep you cosy.

Landpods

Like camping but with a few added extras! Our Landpods sleep up to 4 people, on two double mattresses and a single futon mattress, which doubles up as the seating area. All bedding is included, plus duvets and LED lighting.

Landpods don't have heating, so are more suited to the those who like a traditional camping experience. Even when it's cold out, it’s nothing a couple of warm, cosy blankets can’t fix! There is a bench and BBQ firepit outside, so make the most of the great outdoors and dine al fresco.

Wild camping

Camping is sold per person and not per pitch. During the booking process, you will need to select the number of people who you wish to camp.

Heading to the Eden Sessions? Try wild camping. The campsite is situated within the magical grounds of the Eden Project, just a short walk away from the entrance gates.

Our camping area provides camping for approximately 30 people in their own tents. Please be aware that the field is on a slope and the number of level pitches is limited. Campervans are not permitted.

Toilet, shower and washing up facilities are situated at the bottom of the campsite. Check-in at our main reception before setting up your tent. Campers have full access to the self-catering kitchen which is located in the marquee.

Vehicles are not permitted on the camping field but can use the drop-off point at the end of the field. Guests are not permitted to stay in their vehicles overnight.

Wild camping is only available when the Eden Sessions music events take place.

Meet the team

Manager recommends: Take a 10-minute drive to Historic Charlestown, see the tall-ships and walk along the harbour in the footsteps of Ross Poldark in this living film set. Knightor Winery is only a mile away and produces wine from vineyards on the South Cornish Coast. Visit for tours and tastings, enjoy fine wine and fine fare in their café or relax with a coffee in the sun-trap courtyard.
