As we were driving away from the Lizard Luna to continue our road trip through Cornwall, a set of holiday blues had already started to kick in… and I’m talking literally just 5 minutes later. We seriously didn’t want to leave and had enjoyed our glamping time so much that we were already planning our next visit.
If you think you’ve already seen glamping at it’s best then you can think again. The luxury decor and furnishings, private shower and toilet, attention to detail, and SUPER comfy bed is just standard for the Lizard Luna – but they don’t stop there…
Outdoor handmade gym? Got it.
Private hammocks? Yep.
Handmade bird feeder? Of course.
Outdoor kitchen sink with hot water? Silly question.
The Lizard Luna honestly has everything you could ever need to make your trip a memorable one, and Martin’s attention to detail is just the icing on the cake. From luxury, silk bedding, to the soft towels rolled up neatly ready for you to use. Fairy lights to set the mood of an evening, and enough tea choices to start your morning just right.
What the Lizard Luna has to offer
Facilities overviewLuxury glamping bell tent, adults only, pet free, double bed, private toilet & shower, outdoor kitchen sink with hot water, outdoor gym, hammocks, fire pit/BBQ, logs available to purchase, picnic bench, bird feeder, cooking equipment & crockery, all the details you could need!
Waking up to the sound of birds chirping and the odd cow in the distance, has got to be way up there with the best feelings EVER. We spent our mornings taking a lovely hot shower in our private wash area, lighting the gas stove, sticking the kettle on and spending way too long choosing which flavour tea we wanted. We sat just outside the tent on the bench, still in our PJ’s with wet hair, and the warm sun on our faces. Time slowly rolled by as we intently kept our eyes on the bird-feeder, waiting for the little morning balls of fluff to swoop in – glamping at it’s best with not a worry in the world!
After spending the day exploring the nearby coves, beaches and lovely little villages, we were exhausted. The thought of heading back to our camp, lighting the BBQ and swinging our aches and pains away in the hammocks, was so exciting that we may have head back a little earlier than we should have! Every evening we threw the burgers on the BBQ (not literally), poured a glass of wine and soaked in the last hours of the British summer sun. And can I just say, the fact Martin built the hammocks so the wine bottle is within perfect reaching distance from the floor, made us like him even more. Good thinking Martin, you know us all so well!
As lovely as it is being away from home, not being in your own bed can sometimes be an issue for people when travelling. Rest assured that Mum and I both agree that this is one of, if not THE most comfy beds we’ve slept in! Not too hard, not too soft, it was juuuust right. We slept like logs with help from the LED candles, fairy lights and the soft rustling of the trees in the wind – our own cosy, little nature haven.
We were never stuck for essentials because of course, the Lizard Luna had it all. Gas stove with gas, kettle, mugs, glasses, tea, coffee, milk, plates, bowls, cutlery, frying pan, saucer, cooking utensils, tea towels, salt & pepper, bottle opener, head torches, bits and bobs for washing up, toilet roll, and even eco-friendly shower gel.
Which leads me to my next point – we were so happy to find out that Martin is doing little bits to help the environment. Only eco-friendly shampoo and soaps are allowed in the shower to prevent nasty chemicals being released back out into our environment. We took the most amazing eco shampoo with us called Faith In Nature, which smelled amazing and left our hair naturally detangled after our shower! Just knowing that we were part of taking small steps to help the environment was an added little bonus for us, so make sure to take some eco-friendly stuff with you to do your bit too!
Wait, where even is the Lizard Luna?
Well you guessed it. It’s in Lizard.
Lizard Point is a peninsula off the South Coast of Cornwall and famous for being the most Southerly point in the UK, not to mention the abundance of beautiful coves and stunning coastlines which surround the area. Nothing is more than a 10-15 minute drive from the Lizard Luna, some places even being 5 minutes up the road! We couldn’t have been more perfectly situated.
We’ve placed the Lizard Luna on the map below, and even added in points of interest for you, just to give you even more of a reason to get yourself down to Lizard if there wasn’t one already! We will also list these places in the next section with photos, so scroll down a tad.
Oh Cornwall, you beauty!
Getting straight into it….
Here are our top 5 places to visit when staying at the Lizard Luna.
The Lizard Luna honestly exceeded all expectations and we felt so lucky to have found such a perfect glamping bell tent with such a lovely, friendly and helpful owner.
There is SO much to see and do in the area, and all within a 10-15 minute drive of our camp. Not to mention the several supermarkets nearby which is an added bonus – we have had previous glamping experiences of having to drive miles into the next town for supplies, but here you don’t have to worry!
The whole glamping experience was so special and memorable and we will definitely be back very soon for another amazing stay – thank you Martin!
