Luxury Glamping Pod in Cornwall with a hot tub: a beautiful wooden hideaway for four, with breathtaking views of the ocean and St Michael’s Mount.

General

Perched high above Mount’s Bay in a scenic meadow, this luxury pod enjoys a stunning vista, sweeping from the Lizard Peninsula in the east to the fishing village of Mousehole in the west; and, perhaps the most magical part of all, it looks straight out to Cornwall’s iconic St Michael’s Mount. Spend your days admiring the view and exploring hidden coves, followed by a sunset dip in your private hot tub.

From the moment you step inside you’ll see that Mount Lookout has been carefully designed and built with luxury and comfort in mind. And there’s plenty of space for up to four people. The stunning wooden interiors frame a relaxed, open plan living space, with a dining table and chairs, a comfy sofa (that converts to a double bed), TV, and kitchenette, complete with cooker, microwave, sink, fridge, toaster and kettle - everything you need to prepare a special breakfast to enjoy out on the decking. At the back of the pod there’s a double bed, handy clothes storage and an en suite shower room with a heated towel rail, to freshen up with a little luxury after a day at the beach. The pod is warm and cosy all year round thanks to its underfloor heating and double glazing, so it’s the perfect place for a tranquil coastal escape, whatever the time of year.

Mount Lookout has its own decking with a table and chairs, so you can sit outside with your morning coffee to listen to the birds and watch the sunrise over the ocean. Newly installed for 2022 is a secluded hot tub too, so when the sun goes down, why not pour yourself a glass of wine and enjoy a dip under the stars? Finally, before bed, light up the fire pit and gather round to toast marshmallows, or tell stories to relive your favourite moments from your day by the sea.

There are two other pods in the surrounding meadow (Coastal Gaze and Scenic Bay) but each is positioned so you have your own privacy and space.

Mount Lookout welcomes one dog, so your four-legged friend doesn’t have to stay at home.

Out and About

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!
