Exclusive, luxury glamping on your own private beach in North Cornwall

Imagine your dream camping scenario, turn the dial up a few more notches and you might find yourself thinking of something close to Lusty Glaze Beach in North Cornwall. Want a good tent? How about a luxury bell tent with a double bed and its own private wetroom facilities. Want to be near the beach? How about glamping right on the sands, in your own private cove with curling cliffs around you and the sea lapping just metres away. Want good food? Why don’t we add a restaurant to that beach, with an executive chef who can offer the freshest seafood and a barman that’ll shake up a Manhattan for you to sip at sundown. Even the name of the place, Lusty Glaze Beach, seems almost fairytale.

Lusty Glaze is, however, very much a reality and the real magnificence of the place if brought home to you in full force when you arrive on the cliffs above the cove and look out over it all, taking in the view: The sea; the cove; the bell tents on the sand below. You’re here.

Guests make their entrance to our site, down the 133-step staircase that makes up the only main access way to the beach. Once you’re down on the sands, there really is a new sense of seclusion to the place, only broken by whoops from people playing in the surf and the buzz of jet skis or motorboats further out at sea. Depending on what time of day you arrive you might try and book in an activity straight away – surfing lessons, perhaps, or yoga – or just settle in to your bell tent.

Whether you choose to accept it or not, the few glampers lucky enough to get a space here are still in the real world. With a trek back up the steps you’ll find yourself just a jot north of Newquay town, which takes around 10 minutes to walk into. There’s a glut of restaurants and shops to explore and, of course, plenty more beaches, while, in the opposite direction you can walk around to Porth Beach or follow the South West Coast Path out to Trevelgue Head for a picnic (pre-packed by the chef, naturally). Indeed, the hike up and down the 133 steps is probably about the only hardship that there is here. And the perfect excuse to claim you never really need to leave.

Luxury glamping experiences at Lusty Glaze Beach; This is an exclusive coastal retreat under the stars. A place where you'll feel like you're on your own little paradise island! Our luxury bell tents feature everything you need for an unique beach glamping escape and, in order to make the experience as exclusive as possible, the beach will be reserved solely for our guests - so you'll only see our friendly team and a handful of other people during your stay. This really isn't any old beach, you know - Cornwall is of course famed for some mighty fine stretches of coastline but this is the bit which has been crowned the top spot in the past by a national newspaper (not just for Cornwall but for the whole country… yep, it's that special). It'll probably come as no surprise either to find that the bell tents are equally splendid: each luxury bell tent has its own private 'wet hut facilities' and an outdoor area with beach blankets and barbecue. Dine-in and takeaway food options are available throughout the day if you don't fancy doing your own eats - and of course someone's always on hand to bring you a cool drink if you need one those too. If you’ve ever longed to simply tap out of reality for a little while, or make everything stop and just ‘be’ for a moment or two, then this is for you. Imagine what it would be like to put the ‘out of office’ notification on your life for a few days and disappear, where you only have to think moment to moment… Our accommodation is situated just yards away from the sand and sea. Take a dip in the ocean when no one else is around or watch the sun set over the Atlantic Ocean from your own exclusive beach. This, and much more, awaits you at Lusty Glaze Beach in Newquay, Cornwall. Locations for self-catered  accommodation don’t get much better than this. When you go to bed at night, your natural lullaby will be the gentle sound of the lapping waves. During your stay, you can go surfing or take part in one of the many activities available at The Adventure Centre.
