Cornwall’s coolest glampsite: Three Mile Beach adds luxury tented suites

Escape to the vibrant heart of West Cornwall and the birthplace of Three Mile Beach, a collection of 15 characterful beach houses overlooking the golden sands of Gwithian Beach. Brought to life by Audley Travel founder Craig Burkinshaw and partner, Jo Le Bon, the properties saw a sell-out first season and now in the pipeline for spring 2022 are four beautifully appointed luxury tented suites ideal for smaller groups and couples in search of a cosy night under the stars. 

For the barefoot wanderer, each spacious 30m² tented suite will be designed to take glamping tonew heights, with bold and colourful interiors, white wood panelled walls and handcrafted Cornish furniture; whilst Berber-style rugs and cushions in shades of bright pink and pale mint green pay homage to the owners’ wanderlust. A super-king size bed will sleep you and a loved one with an additional sofa bed if you like to travel in groups or have your little one with you. An extensive kitchen with a retro Everhot double oven, fridge and dining table means you can all cook up a storm in the comfort of their own home away from home. A freestanding bathtub offers a sumptuous soak after a long day by the sea. What more could you ask for? 

Outside, the Three Mile Beach signature wrap-around terrace comes complete with a barbecue and seating area for alfresco feasting, as well as a cedarwood hot tub for tranquil evenings under the night sky. An outdoor shower and surfboard rack offers the ultimate surf in, surf out feeling, and you will also have access to two luxury shared bathrooms and a SunCube sauna just a stone’s throw away. 

Those who opt to stay in the tented suites will have access to the wider Three Mile Beach amenities and host of foodie offerings that celebrate the best of Cornish produce, including a welcome hamper filled with locally-sourced goodies, an on-site food truck serving up an array of seasonal light bites for lunch and new fun-filled themed nights for dinner, and a drinks tuk-tuk offering craft beers, creative cocktails and soft drinks. If you’d like to get more hands on, there are Ooni pizza ovens and DIY pizza kits in addition to all-new Sunday roast deliveries offer a piece of home comfort.

Blissfully hidden among the sand dunes and overlooking the rolling waves of Gwithian Beach, while at Three Mile Beach you can immerse yourself fully in the heart of the Cornish coastline. Those looking to brush up their skills in this surfer’s paradise can book a lesson with the next-door surf school or enjoy surfboard, bodyboard and wetsuit hire, all delivered to guests’ doors for ease. Thrill-seekers can explore the surrounding landscape by e-bike or discover the impressive coastline with an unforgettable coasteering session.
