Off the Beaten Shack

1 unit · Glamping4 acres · Launceston, England
Immerse yourself in nature away from the crowds in our unique, rustic and cosy cabin set in a secluded copse amongst nature. The ideal place to tour Cornwall, or simply shut yourself away to escape and recharge your batteries. Sit, relax and watch dragonflies dance over the pond, listen to the birds, bees and butterflies breathing in the fresh moorland air. We have a beautiful wild flower meadow, woodland paths and an area outside the shack with seating and pond. We would love to, but cannot accept dogs due to the wildlife pond in front of the shack and free ranging chickens. If you would like to bring other pets or very small dogs who don’t like water just please ask. We are be happy to accommodate parents with babies or toddlers, if requested in advance so we can put safety features in place. Older children are welcome, but to ensure they get the most out of their stay please request before booking as there is no facility for extra beds. Please note, the shack is chilly in Winter without the wood burner lit. If you don’t feel confident using the wood burner which makes it super toasty, then please reconsider your stay. There is a modern electric fire and bathroom towel rail/radiator. Heated blankets on the bed, rugs and throws are provided. We have installed WiFi and you can receive good phone signal and 4G on most networks. It is a short walk (150m?) to ‘off the beaten shack’, it is sometimes wet and muddy underfoot, but a wood chip pathway leads to the shack. It would not suit those with limited mobility. Local produce and Food Hampers are available but best be ordered minimum 48hrs in advance. Good quality Tea, coffee, hot chocolate and sugar provided. Large basket of logs and kindling is supplied (extra available to buy). Organic Eggs from our free ranging chickens available to buy.

Woodland cabins in Watergate Bay guide

Overview

For those looking to escape the crowds of Newquay, the golden sands of Watergate Bay lie just to the north. Life in Watergate Bay is all about the beach. Stroll along the sea cliffs, take to the water to swim or stand-up paddleboard, or enjoy kite-surfing along the 2-mile long sands, then grab dinner at a restaurant with views of the ocean. Summertime is peak season for swimmers and campers, with lifeguard patrols from May through September, and several campsites to choose from. For surfers, the biggest swells hit the shore in winter—just don’t forget your wetsuit!

Where to go

Northwest Coast

West of Watergate, Cornwall’s north coast is wild and windswept. The surf Mecca of Newquay is one of the region’s busiest hubs, while further south, St Ives is surrounded by sandy beaches and seaside holiday parks. Coastal hikes don’t come more spectacular than the South West Coast Path, which runs the entire length of the Cornish coast. 

Northeast Coast

Sweeping headlands and rocky coves line the coast east of Watergate Bay. Enjoy sea-cliff walks along the Trevose Head Heritage Coast, spot sea-birds swooping along the shore, or take in the views from Pentire Point. Further north, discover the legacy of King Arthur at Tintagel Castle or hike up the High Cliff, Cornwall’s highest point. 

South Coast

St Austell, Falmouth, and Fowey are the headline acts of the ‘Cornish Riviera’, a 30-minute drive south of Watergate Bay. Camping options range from family-friendly holiday parks to glamping in a luxury yurt, but whichever you choose, the beach is never far away. Don’t miss a visit to the Eden Project, famed for its giant rainforest biomes. 

Bodmin Moors

Misty moorlands and ancient standing stones tempt intrepid hikers away from the coast to the Bodmin Moors. Visit in the summertime to hike amid fields of purple heather, picnic by Golitha Falls, then pitch your tent at a hillside camping ground. Look out for native ponies grazing the hillsides along the way.
