Glamping pod in Cornwall: an idyllic glamping pod high above Mount's Bay, with unbeatable views of the ocean and Cornwall's iconic St Michael's Mount.
Set in a tranquil meadow in the west of Cornwall, not too far from the bustling town of Penzance, this stunning luxury glamping pod has a magical ocean view that’s hard to beat. The sweeping vista stretches all the way from the Lizard Peninsula in the east and the fishing village of Mousehole in the west, with the breathtaking St Michael’s Mount in the middle, directly ahead of your hideaway. Scenic Bay is the perfect place to slow down, savour the moment and reconnect with nature, with lazy mornings and dreamy evenings spent out on the deck or around the firepit.
You’ll feel relaxed from the moment you step inside this beautifully-crafted pod. Stunning wooden interiors frame a calming, open plan living space, featuring a comfy sofa (that converts to a double bed), a TV, a dining table and chairs and a fully-equipped kitchenette. Whether you’re preparing a special breakfast or a tasty picnic for your day of adventures, you’ll find everything you need here, including a cooker, microwave, sink, fridge, toaster and kettle. At the back of the pod there’s a double bed, so it comfortably sleeps up to four, in total. There’s also an en suite shower room with a heated towel rail, which is a lovely luxury touch. The pod is always warm thanks to the underfloor heating, double glazing and excellent insulation, so whatever the time of year, you’ll be comfortable and cosy.
Outside, the decking is built for enjoying the incredible views of the dazzling ocean, whether you’re sipping your morning coffee or cooking up a feast on the firepit. There’s a table and chairs too, so you can spend your evenings chatting together with a glass of wine or mug of hot chocolate under the stars. One dog is welcome to stay at Scenic Bay too, so your four-legged friend can join in the fun!
If you can tear yourself away from the breathtaking views, there is so much beauty to discover across the west of Cornwall. One of the first places to visit has to be St Micheal's Mount. This magical island castle can be accessed by foot at low tide across the causeway and at high tide by boat, from Marazion beach. If lazy beach days are on your to do list, then you are spoilt for choice. With sunny St.Ives only a short drive away, as well as Hayle and its 3 miles of golden sandy beaches to be explored, you can enjoy plenty of salt kissed, sandy moments throughout your stay.
For the adventure seekers, visit Sennen Cove, Gwithian and Porthmeor for surf lessons. You can hire equipment here too. If you love outdoor swimming visit the art deco lido in Penzance and enjoy a salt water swim. There's even a thermal pool here, so you can take to the water even in the winter months. If you love walking, the southwest coast path is just waiting to be explored. Pack a picnic and don't forget your swimwear and towel as there are so many hidden coves to embrace a wild swim, along your coastal ramble. The 12-mile St Michael's Way footpath is one to be discovered and to celebrate your voyage, enjoy a refreshing pint at the White Hart inn in nearby Ludgvan, one of the oldest pubs in Cornwall and luckily only a short stroll away from your humble abode.
The magical Porthcurno isn't far away, so why not book into the famous Minack Theater and enjoy watching a show with the most stunning backdrop! Tremenheere Sculpture Gardens is only a ten minute walk from your glamping hideaway and is well worth a visit. These beautiful gardens boast exotic flora and fauna and the cafe, shop and onsite gallery are well worth a visit! Take time to wander the streets of Newlyn and enjoy some fresh seafood at Mackerel Sky or a cocktail and Tapas at Lovettes. Mousehole is the next village on from Newlyn, and is full of quaint shops and lovely eateries such as The Old Coastguard and The Rockpool. We told you, there is so much to discover across this pretty corner or Cornwall… you might never want to leave!

Located 2.4 miles NE of Penzance powered by the classic guide
St Michael's Mount
This local landmark looks like something straight out of a fairytale; a medieval castle perched on top of a little tidal island, complete with cobbled streets and even its own harbour and gardens. ...
The Cornish theatre with real ‘wow’ factor is the Minack. Perched on the cliffs at Porthcurno, the Minack is an open-air theatre-in-the-round – and a triumph of vision over reality.
Porthminster Beach Cafe
One restaurant, one beach, one menu, one excellent approach to food. Recommended in the Times (2012) as one of the top five places to eat fish!
