A Cornwall site has been named among the best vintage caravan stays in the UK, according to a list from The Guardian.

The caravan, which is called Tilly and is located in Porthtowan, was included in the list of 10 "retro caravans with original features and wild surrounds".

Many locations around the South West of England, Wales and Scotland were featured.

The full list of the best UK vintage caravan stays can be found on The Guardian website here.

What was said about Tilly?

Much praise was given to the back-to-basic nature of the Tilly caravan site, with an outdoor cooking area, cosy bed and basic kitchen.

They said: "The owners describe staying in cute, pastel-blue Tilly as like “comfortable camping” – there is no hot running water but there is a cosy bed, dining area and basic kitchen.

"The vintage van is parked in the owners’ sheltered, wooded driveway, and the hot shower and outdoor loo are on the decking near the house, 20 metres away.

"There is an outdoor cooking area, picnic table and stripy deckchairs.

"A bonus is the five-minute walk to Porthtowan beach, a surf school and the South West Coast Path; buses run to Newquay and St Ives in the summer. Tall people take note: tiny Tilly may not be the most comfortable option."

You can book a stay at the Tilly caravan on the Airbnb website here.

One reviewer on the site posted: "We had the most wonderful stay with Rebecca and Graham, they were perfect hosts!!

"Tilly the caravan and the outdoor space provided is lovely, situated a short walk away from the beach and everything you could need. We can’t recommend staying here enough and would love to return!"

Another wrote: "We had a lovely time staying in Tilly the camper with our excellent hosts and their beautiful garden!

"Porthtowan is stunning and Tilly was an excellent base for our adventures around Cornwall. I would definitely recommend!"
