Now taking bookings!!

If you’ve been following us on social media recently (and if not, why not?!) you’ll have seen that we finally got planning permission! So it’s all systems go now here at Lydcott Farm, with so much to do before we can start accepting you lovely people as guests. That said, we are officially now taking bookings from April 2019 so we’d better get on with it!

What we do know, is that we should be open for visitors by Christmas this year – but to play it on the absolute safe side – we’ve opened up bookings on our website from April 2019, and will release more dates before then once we have a definite launch date in sight.

We haven’t officially shown you the huts we’ve chosen yet – so here you go… Ta-dah!

Aren’t they amazing? So in the coming weeks, we have loads to do. Groundworks start beginning of October, and by the end of October we should have new access driveway, parking, all electrical and drainage services in place, and our beautiful huts being delivered in the first week of November!

Then it’s furnishing the huts with all the luxuries you could wish for, and landscaping to create a private outside area for each hut, ensuring privacy without blocking the sea views!

SO, wish us luck and watch this space for more exciting developments!

BOOK HERE to reserve one of the huts for your holiday next year!

What a view!!

So it’s been a crazy old time here this month. We’re making VERY slow progress with our planning application – but will let you know as soon as we have any newsworthy news! In the meantime – the weather has been crazy to say the least! We love it though, whatever the weather – it’s just a special and magical place to be.

When you stay at Lydcott Glamping you’ll see for yourself – but until then, you’ve just got to take our word for it. The view is so stunning – and it seems to change from one minute to the next, never mind from one season to the next.

We thought you might like to see a few shots, all taken this month (March 2018) to show you how much it can change!

Which is your favourite?

Enjoy!

Love, the Liddles x

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!)
