A Cornish Beach Has Been Transformed Into A Camp Site
Lusty Glaze Beach, a cove on the north coast, has transformed over the past two decades from a deserted and derelict site into Britain's Most Instagrammable Campsite that now offers luxury yurt experiences.
After the beach was forced to close along with other hospitality businesses by the government back in March, owner Tracey Griffiths used the past three months to 'evaluate, introspect and consider how the immediate future might look.'
The business has therefore had a reshuffle for 2020 and will be running luxury yurt experiences - coastal retreats under the stars with concierge service.
There will be 12 yurts for hire down on Lusty Glaze Beach, meaning a maximum of just 24 guests at any one time.
Described as 'all the service of a super yacht on the sand', those staying in the luxury yurts will enjoy concierge service, a bespoke array of activities such as jet ski tours and sunrise yoga, and will have all meals freshly prepared by an Executive Chef. They will be available to hire until mid-September.

Operations Manager Andi Millson explained: "It would be impossible to reopen Lusty Glaze this summer as it was before. We welcome around 1,500 visitors on average per day and the only access to our little cove is down 133 steps that are carved into the cliff and are only 1m at their widest.
"That's why we believe the decision to switch up our offering and introduce a luxurious but limited glamping service was absolutely the right one for 2020.
"Not only will it help to protect our guests, team and wider community, it will create a truly unique experience for a limited amount of guests. That's why we've focused on becoming a totally exclusive and unique beach destination by offering The Yurt Collection at Lusty Glaze for this summer season - a luxury camping experience on the beach."
Tracey added: "When we were thinking about how we could adapt to the impacts of coronavirus, I was taken back to exactly what drew me to buying Lusty Glaze 21 years ago - the exquisite energy and beauty of this cove; a place where magic really does happen; a place that has, through its magnetism, changed so many lives, in ways too many to count."
The Yurt Collection offers three-night stays: Friday (check in 3pm) - Monday (check out 10am) or Tuesday (check in 3pm) - Friday (check out 10am). The stays will set you back £2,500 ($3,200) per yurt for the three nights - they sleep two people.
All stays are bespoke and can be tailored with any activities. All meals and food are freshly prepared and included in the stay. Drinks, however, are not included and some activities may be extra.
