what is a wildcation?
Book a stay at Little M, get a wildcation for free! But what is one of those?
1. immersive and adventurous escape from the daily grind, allowing you to disconnect from modern distractions and get closer to nature
2. rejuvenating retreat that offers a peaceful respite, providing an opportunity to unwind, recharge, and rediscover a sense of tranquility
3. enriching and educational journey that encourages hands-on exploration, allowing you to deepen your understanding of the environment and foster a greater connection with the wild
4. offers you a distinct approach to connecting with the environment and nature, making it a more consciously sustainable and educational choice compared to traditional glamping
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!
You can have a wildcation in any of our marvellous cabins…
a romantic log cabin in the woods
Tucked away on the other side of a babbling brook, Log Jam sits proudly on it’s stilts looking back majestically across the woodland clearing it is nestled in. From this beautiful vantage point, either sitting on the veranda or inside on the big comfy sofa you will feel the romance as the wilderness dances and sings to you…
an enchanted wooden roundhouse
You’ll be forgiven for feeling dizzy after a stay here – it’s likely to be because of the magic spell Round n Round has cast on you. Stargaze at night from the mezzanine kingsize bed through the beautiful dome light, or swing dreamily in the hammock listening to nature busy itself around you…
