Our Luxury Glamping Vision is Born

Here we are, our very first blog post. It’s been a couple of years dreaming but we’re finally ready to make the first steps towards becoming a luxury glamping business, here in South East Cornwall.

Every morning we look out across lush green fields towards the sea, and every evening (come rain or shine) we sit outside and admire the very same view, watching the intermittent flash of the Eddystone Lighthouse on the horizon. And every second of every day we count ourselves so lucky to live here. We’ve often talked about how it’s the perfect holiday location. Peaceful, beautiful, sea views, beaches within 5 minutes, the whole of Cornwall on the doorstep.

Lucky enough to also have enough land to be able to create a secluded holiday destination – we have a vision to build 3 luxurious and high spec Shepherds Huts, all taking advantage of the sea views. Each will have en suite facilities, and we may even be able to stretch to a hot tub, all things going well!

So where do we start? Well, we have a meeting with a local architect this week, who comes very highly recommended. We want to make sure that whatever we propose in our planning application has only a positive effect on the local landscape and environment.

We don’t really fully know yet how long it will take, or all the steps to get there, but the journey starts here, and I’m sure things will all fall into place as we go.

Follow us on our journey creating our luxury glamping site – Lydcott Glamping – opening to visitors hopefully some time in 2018. (that’s as specific as we’re getting for now!)

  1. This is so exciting! And from a conservation point of view (which is obviously my thang) Iโ€™m v glad youโ€™re working with the landscape. Apart from a good architect, can I suggest you contact your local Natural England rep. They do a great job in advising landowners for free how to use their land with conservation in mind and can help you apply for grants for things such as planting hedgerows etc. If it turns out you have any important habitat or species on your site you may also be able to apply for Local Wildlife Site designation with help from your Local Nature Partnership. Sounds fabulous!!! Loads of love and luck Pim x
