what is a wildcation?
Book a stay at Little M, get a wildcation for free! But what is one of those?
1. an adventurous time spent getting close to and learning about nature
2. time spent at a cosy cabin, forest bathing in the woods watching the wildlife go by and cooking on an open fire, breathing the air and just relaxing
Here at Little M, it’s all about the experience, not just a bed. From the moment you get out of your car, you’ll feel the weight of the world drop off your shoulders and a sense of calm envelope you. The opportunity to slow down and reflect. Press Reset and get inspired…

Little Menherion is a special place to hide away, connect with the wild & strike out on adventures. She is set in a tranquil valley, in the hamlet of Menherion that is our little piece of Cornish paradise, and affectionately referred to as ‘Little M’.
Situated ~190m above sea level in the middle of West Cornwall, Little M is nearly at the end of the world. Our world anyway – we don’t leave the county much… not anymore. But it is sooo peaceful here, and sooo tranquil we really want to share it, which is why we invite you to come and stay in our unique glamping spaces and create memories you will surely cherish for a lifetime.
From the moment you leave the main road your adventure begins. The half mile of unmade track leading to Little M isn’t for the faint hearted nor ideal for that lovely sports car you have! Maybe leave it at home… this is the first nudge to move you over onto the slow lane as that’s the only way to traverse this well worn path. Arriving just after you gave up hope you ever would, you’ll be glad you made the effort. Having parked up, it’s only a short walk, but a beautiful one, down a nature-rich grass lane. The thick soft grass blanket underfoot, towering Cornish hedge on one side heavily laden with lichen and mosses all the year round (a haven for birds, bees and butterflies) and a view of the meadow and surrounding countryside on the other. How could this not set the tone for your relaxing stay?
Each cabin is unique and has its own space of around 1/2 acre – a lovely tranquil space designed with couples in mind. Each a magical experience, with a luxurious kingsize bed, private facilities and an outdoor space for cooking and relaxing in.
Welcome to the start of your wildcation!
