Glamping With Heart; Tregantle Eco Glamping
When I recently stayed at Tregantle Eco Glamping Site near Whitsand Bay, I left with the fullest heart and the biggest smile. There’s many glamping sites popping up but this one is truly special. The owner, a lovely lady called Michele, set up the site and puts her whole heart into it. You may be sleeping in a tent but it’s far from roughing it, see for yourself…
Tregantle is on the South East of Cornwall, as you enter the ‘forgotten corner’. The site itself is a short walk inland from one of the most stunning coastlines above Whitsand Bay and only a short distance to everything the Rame Peninsula has to offer. The site is made up of three luxury tents; two with a shared kitchen and bathroom space and one with its own private kitchen.
The tents are adorned with bunting, weaving ivy, fresh flowers and kitsch touches to make it feel homely. Outside of the tents, there’s a unit which has been converted into your communal space. Inside is a full kitchen with gas hob, fridge, sink, dining table and all the crockery and cutlery you could need. To the side, is the bathroom set up complete with full sized hot shower, sink and composting toilet. There’s also a second outdoor shower should you prefer a little al fresco!
Michele has a fresh cream tea waiting for your arrival, with her own handmade scones and fresh berries. It’s the most joyful welcome ever! There’s also an abundance of games and entertainment for family and children.
You may have a full kitchen set up but don’t worry about breakfast, Michele has you covered! Each morning, she quietly pops into the kitchen and leaves you with a hamper with your tent name on it. Inside is an array of delicious breakfast goodies ready to enjoy. She does her best to vary the breakfasts so you won’t get bored and accommodates any dietary requirements.
The first morning we had fresh pastries, yogurt, fruit and honey plus a selection of meats and cheeses. All washed down with fresh orange juice. The next morning, we had hot breakfast baps filled with sausage, eggs and hashbrowns, as well as Michele’s homemade banana bread – so sweet!
After breakfast, we took a wander down to the beach. You can follow the road for a walk or if you have bikes, or you can shortcut through the field which brings you out by the Whitsand car park.
From here, you can jump straight onto the coastal path to head East towards Rame Head or West to Crafthole and Seaton.
We had such a lovely time staying here – not to mention exceptionally comfortable on that double bed set up! A wonderful place to stay and a joy to bring your friends and family and have the site to yourself.
