A unique, expertly handcrafted back-to-nature escape that showcases some of the best sea views in Cornwall.

Perfectly nestled in the rural Cornish village of Widegates, Lydcott Glamping offers you the chance to explore all the enchantment of Cornwall, far away from the tourist bustle.

Positioned next to a friendly working farm, the glamping cabins offer outstanding views of an awe-inspiring and ever-changing landscape. Rise to incredible scenes of the shimmering Seaton Bay over morning coffee - on a clear day you may even catch a glimpse of the Eddystone Lighthouse!

Better still, the three gorgeous glamping cabins you'll discover here are the first of their kind in the UK, and are almost as visually breathtaking as their surroundings. Each one is expertly crafted in traditional Nordic design, from natural materials including spruce and aspen.

Choose from a cosy couple's cabin that sleeps two, or two larger cabins that sleeps up to four if you're bringing the kids. Each one is fitted and furnished with stylish comfort in mind, including ensuite facilities with fluffy towels, a well-equipped kitchen - and naturally, downy kingsize beds.

Head outside to discover your very own private garden area at the back of each cabin, featuring a firepit and barbecue, complete with seating for late-night stargazing over toasted marshmallows. Each cabin also includes a decked area at the front for wonderful sea views!

Spoil yourselves even more, with a pre-ordered hamper filled with the finest, locally-sourced Cornish produce! Choose from a breakfast hamper that includes freshly-laid eggs with local sausages, bacon and honey, a sumptuous selection of Cornish cheeses, or an indulgent cream tea hamper. If tipples are more your thing, you can also sample some refreshing local ales or soft drinks.

Curl up with your loved ones and a good book, or if you prefer getting out and about, no problem! Cornwall is famed for its long, sandy beaches, and there's a stunning selection less than ten minutes away - ideal for budding and experienced surfers alike.

You'll also find a whole host of Cornish attractions available almost on the doorstep, including a wealth of National Trust properties and of course, the Eden Project.  

As you might expect, there's an endless supply of local shopping, wining and dining spots to browse through too - in fact, why not arrange an opulent wine tour and tasting session at the nearby Knightor Winery?

If heaven created glamping breaks, they'd probably look a lot like Lydcott Glamping. So if everyday life is getting you down, simply pack your bags and head straight for the Cornish coast.

Tried and tested

"We stayed at Lydcott Glamping last week in the beautiful 'Prosecco' and we absolutely loved it, and even booked an extra night whilst we were there. Every single detail has been beautifully thought out and 'Prosecco' has everything you could want and so much more. It is more like pampering than glamping! It is so light and airy and very spacious. From the most comfortable extra large bed with a fabulous picture window, to the amazing shower room with piping hot shower and the well laid out kitchen with absolutely everything provided, you will have the most luxurious stay. Emma and Rich are wonderful, totally respect your privacy but are on hand for anything if required. Every detail of the layout, the decking with seating and amazing views and the firepit area is just perfect. It's such a tranquil location but a perfect base to get around to some amazing places like Looe, Polperro, gorgeous beaches and eateries, even Newquay is only a short 45 min drive, fistral beach there is a must. Can not recommend Lydcott enough and we really cant wait to return. Thank you Emma and Rich for our pampering."

"What a fabulous place to stay. I stayed in the smaller of the 2 cabins "Prosecco" - it is so cute and surprisingly spacious inside. It was immaculately clean and airy, the bathroom / shower is first class, the bed is huge, incredibly comfortable with lovely quality linen and all of the little personal touches make it a unique and unforgettable experience. The little kitchen is great with everything you could possibly need and the fire pit area is great for a barby in the evening.The location is perfect, it is very quiet and peaceful with the most gorgeous views during the day and starlit sky with no light pollution at night. To top it all the hostess Emma is lovely and goes out of her way to make sure everything is simply perfect for your stay. The gorgeous little town of Polperro is just a short drive away and is an absolute must see while you are there. I can't recommend Lydcott Glamping highly enough - 5 stars."

"Our stay at the Pasty was absolutely spot on for this long Easter weekend! The fire pit was all set and ready to be used when we arrived. The view is stunning. The equipment is perfect! We'll recommend it to anyone. Great for relaxing! Last but not least Emma was very welcoming and helpful. Enjoy!"
