Airbnb host charges £65 a night for a stay in Cornwall – but there's a catch that could leave you RAGING | The Sun
AN AIRBNB host is charging £65 a night – but there is a catch that could leave you raging.
The flat in Penzance, Cornwall, sleeps four people – but not on beds you would be expecting from a holiday home.
The flat only has one double airbed in the bedroom and two singles crammed into the lounge.
Described as "flat camping" the property is completely empty in a bid to recreate the camping experience with everyone being in close proximity.
However, it is a lot more expensive than actual camping with not much difference.
With rates starting from just £10 per night to stay in an actual tent on a Cornish camp site, it makes you wonder why you would pay nearly seven times that.

And the most expensive holiday park we found to camp in a tent at was around £37 per night – which sleeps six people and supplies electric.
If holiday-goers wanted to stay at the flat, they would still need to bring their own bedding, towels, paper plates and disposable cutlery.
They do however, supply toilet roll.
Unlike camping, the getaway does have a fully functioning bathroom as well as a fridge, oven, charging sockets, a kettle and a mirrored wardrobe.
The host boasts in the description: "This is an ideal way of camping but without being in a tent!
"The flat is modern and clean and in a perfect position!"
Just a five-minute walk to the beach, the Airbnb does have great views and also allows pets.
If you want to get the feel for camping but still have access to electric, gas and hot water then this might be the place for you.
