Hot Tub Glamping in Cornwall is one of the UK's most popular new trends, and it's playing a more and more important part of that visitor experience. As a county with both spectacular countryside and coastlines, choosing to go glamping is a perfectly reasonable option. It gives the opportunity to explore nature, which Cornwall has an awful lot of, and the kids love; but when the day is done, not many of those kids, or their families, will want to go without their home comforts.

Unlike other parts of the UK, Cornwall has opportunities for glamping throughout most of its area. It is almost completely surrounded by sea, so has an awful lot of coastal views. Further inland, the rural feel of the county is very much in evidence, with river valleys and wide open spaces allowing access to nature in most places. There are also many lovely villages, fishing ports and tourist towns dotted across Cornwall, so supplies for glamping should never be too hard to get hold of.
Working farms, nationally recognized beauty spots and nature reserves also punctuate Cornwall. Much of the coastline is preserved as a heritage area, and Bodmin Moor is a huge, wild area in the middle of the county at its widest spot. As Cornwall derives most of its income from tourism, glamping is one of the activities which is encouraged and well catered for. Either on official glampsites, or more off the beaten track, this county probably has more opportunities for glamping per square mile than any other.
The south coast of the county is known as the Cornish Riviera. This is because its miles of beautiful beaches, warm climate and blue seas are reminiscent of the South of France. For this reason, this is a very popular tourist area, and gets particularly busy in the warmer months. The south coast also houses the Roseland and Polperro Heritage Coast Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty, which follow river valleys deep into the Cornish countryside.
Safari tents, treehouses and yurts are particularly popular at glampsites in and around the south of Cornwall. Tailor made sites abound throughout the Roseland Heritage Coast AONB, surrounding the Carrich Roads estuary, which includes the National Trust's Trelissick Garden attraction. This is perfect for a day out with the kids, and a great way to get them interested in the natural world. Glamping is available to the south of the A39 and A390 towards the coast, from Ponsanooth in the south west to St Austell in the east of the area.
The north coast of Cornwall is often associated with surfing, especially around the coastal town of Newquay. This popularity as a surfers' destination has driven much of the tourist economy in the northern part of Cornwall, which is busy for much of the year. Unlike resorts which rely on sunshine, the wild seas around Newquay attract surfers in all but the worst of weathers. As many surfers also enjoy camping, campsites also proliferate in the area. In recent years, this has also brought a lot of glampers, with many lodges and cottages springing up to cater for this trade.
To the north and east of Newquay, Cornwall also becomes broader, offering more inland as well as coastal sites suitable for glamping. The Trevose Head Heritage Coast AONB surrounds Padstow, and the estuary of the River Camel. There are many glampsites in and around this area, with Wadebridge on the A39 a central destination for finding both AONB and private farm glampsites nearby.
To the north and east of the Camel lies the Pentire Point – Boscastle AONB. This stretches up the coastline all the way up to Widemouth Bay, and reaches as far inland as the A39 in its northern section. There are some quite large camping and caravanning sites around Tintagel, at the heart of the AONB, and site of the mythical birthplace of King Arthur. Some of these larger sites have specifically set aside areas for glamping, and are focused on families and larger groups.
To the south east of the Boscastle AONB, and further away from the coast, is Bodmin Moor. This huge natural feature is popular with those glampers who like to feel nature in the raw, before heading back to the safety of the lodge and the comfort of the hot tub. Although the moor itself is bleak and forbidding, glampsites in the area are more on its outskirts. The A30 cuts directly through the Moor, from the north east to the south west.
To the west of Carrich Roads lies the far west of Cornwall, which includes the most southerly and westerly points of England. As well as the world famous Land's End tourist attractions, glamping is available across this rugged part of the county. Famous for its cliffs and inlets, glampsites in the area have some of the most spectacular views anywhere in the country.
The Lizard Heritage Coast Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty covers an extensive area of the Lizard Peninsula, the southern tip of both Cornwall and the British mainland. As such, it is surrounded to the south, east and west by the Atlantic Ocean, and its outer areas feel much like being perched on a cliff, which some glampsites almost are.
To the very far west of Cornwall is the Penwith Heritage Coast, another of Cornwall's many Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty. This covers a coastal area starting from St Ives in the north, all the way around the rugged coast past Trevescan in the far west, back round to Mousehole in the south east of the AONB. Some glampsites are specifically set up near the beach, with family holidays in mind, while many others are available more inland. The National Trust has its own campsites as part of the AONBs, and there are working farms surprisingly close to the sea with their own glamping facilities.
