Unique and luxurious glamping cabins

Forget camping, this is luxurious glamping at its inspirational best, offering seven unique Nordic-design pods created from fragrant aspen and spruce, you are offered glamorous camping with both sea and rural views.

Choose from ‘Prosecco’, with a queen size bed inside and a double hammock outside, providing a romantic retreat for a couple; ‘The Pasty’, with its huge family sun-lounger, ideal for 2-4 people, a lovely family hideaway; or the flexibility of ‘The Pilchard’ designed for 1 or 2 couples or a family, with a giant sun-lounger and two queen-sized beds available.

‘Proper Job’ cabin is perfect for families; the cabin sleeps up to 6 people, with a large double bed in the main bedroom, seated dining area converting into a second king sized bed and  double sofa bed (suitable for kids). There’s an extra large window to make the most of the sea views, a tree swing and a private ‘sunset spot’ with hammock.

‘Dreckly’ is one of the newest and most luxurious cabins, with an extra large window to make the most of the sea views. The cabin sleeps a couple or a family in a king sized bed and double sofa bed. It also boasts its very own ‘secret garden’ with sunset viewpoint in a little woodland clearing.

‘Jam First’ cabin sleeps 2 adults plus a double sofa bed in the living area if you want to bring the kids, while ‘Clotted Cream’ has two king size beds.

These warm and cosy ‘Iglucraft’ cabins suit all seasons.  They are made from rustic-looking handcrafted timber, constructed into creatively-designed tiny houses with all the amenities you need for a wonderful break in the Cornish countryside.

Snug all year round, designed with your comfort specially in mind, each insulated pod is a light, bright and airy real ‘home from home’ for you to leave stresses and tensions behind, to really get away from it all.

The incredible location overlooking Seaton Bay and Eddystone Lighthouse is away from the hustle and bustle of daily life, providing relaxing rural tranquillity with outstanding views and plenty of places to visit close by.  Outside your curvy cabin, on your small glampsite, you have your own private space, seating and a firepit to make the most of your unique surroundings.

Try breakfast outside with fresh eggs, milk and locally-sourced produce before a day out taking in the breathtakingly dramatic coastal scenery.  On a clear night, just look up to see an amazing light-show of stars before enjoying a good night’s sleep in this tantalisingly tranquil, secluded spot.

Looe is a bustling fishing town situated on the south coast of Cornwall. It is divided into South Looe and East Looe by the River Looe, connected by a bridge for vehicle and foot traffic.

Stepping out from your Cornish holiday cottage in Looe, there are plenty of shops to browse, pubs to drink in and restaurants to dine out at.  Nearly all of the local tea shops and restaurants offer fresh locally sourced fish and you can purchase fresh fish from the local fishmongers on the quayside.  Perfect to take back and grill on the BBQ at your holiday home.  If you fancy something from the Cornish land though, The Smugglers Cottage offers up steak and carvery specialities.

It isn’t a holiday until you have spent some time on the beach.  In East Looe there is a beach beside the Banjo Pier and in West Looe is Hannafore Beach, from which there is a view across to Looe Island.  You can even try to find your sea legs with a little stand up paddle boarding or just enjoy a traditional picnic on the sand, while the children paddle in the sea.

A trip to Looe Island is a fun day out, it is is noted for it’s particularly mild climate and variety of wildlife.  There are no shops or pubs on the island and no cars allowed, but there are two beautiful beaches and plenty of woodlands to explore.  The island is accessible on foot at low tide and by foot ferry at a charge when the tide is in.

If you are interested in history, then swing by The Old Sardine Factory where you can learn all about Looe’s past or take a ride on the Looe Valley Line.  The Looe Valley Line is runs out to Liskeard along the East Looe river valley and has magnificent views.  There are also lots of different birds to see including Little Eygrets, Grey Herons and Curlews.

For something slightly more indulgent, take some ‘you time’ at the Hannafore Point Hotel and Spa.  Relax in fluffy white towels, book a treatment and lunch and then soak up the bubbles in the hydrotherapy pool before returning to your holiday home for a quiet night in.

Just a short drive from Looe, you will find lots of other attractions in the area including Talland Bay, beautiful Fowey and its’ neighbour Polruan, the busy fishing harbour village of Polperro and the bustling village of Padstow with its harbour shops, pubs and splendid walks along the Camel estuary.

Your Looe Cottage is a great base from which to get to know this stunning part of Cornwall.
