Seeing as you will spend so much time gazing at it, visiting the majestic St Michael's Mount is a must!
There is a pretty harbour at the Mount.
The fishing village of Mousehole is just a short drive away and well worth a visit.
The ever-popular, bustling town of St Ives is close by too.
The gorgeous beach at Sennen, ideal for bucket and spade days or surfing.
Nearby Porthcurno beach is just stunning!

Perfect stay in a perfect property. the view was superb and even though we experienced bad weather, the property was warm and cosy and the view was still outstanding. Watching the weather rolling in over the sea. 5 minute car journey to a great beach and 10 minute drive to St Ives and other outstanding beaches. Great pub within a 5 minute walk serving wonderful food.

Excellent pods, lovely stay. Hamper and treats on arrival was a really nice touch. Personal meet and greet by Andrew was a nice gesture and made the experience more personal. Thank you

Pod and view beyond our expectations! The place was outstanding, super clean and comfortable, ideal for a short break for a family of 4. The panorama from the pod was breath taking and worth a visit or two.. or three! Highly recommended.

Thank you for your wonderful review and for highly recommending the pod. We are delighted you loved the outstanding views and we do hope you can visit again very soon. Sarah R, Customer Support

Breath taking views and an utterly gorgeous pod - we loved every minute of our trip!!

A wonderful relaxing place to stay with fabulous views. The location is excellent with lots to see and do close by. The pod was warm and cosy, with everything we needed for a short break.

Scenic Bay was a delight. The view from the pod was spectacular... eating breakfast overlooking St Michael's Mount was so good for the soul! The owners, Michelle and Andrew, ensured I had everything I needed, the pod was cosy in the evenings, and, crucially as a single woman, I felt safe there. It was very well located to explore West Cornwall, with some special tourist treats almost on the doorstep.

When reserving on classic cottages, I didn't receive the email to make payment straight away which meant the booking got cancelled but luckily when I called up this was resolved, maybe something could be improved in terms of the booking/making payment. It was a lovely stay, would highly recommend and go back in the future.

A fabulous first glamping experience! A “Room with a View”, great to wake up and look across to St Michael’s Mount. Andrew and Michelle have thought of everything, well equipped and snug with underfloor heating. Loved the welcome hamper with local products. Thank you Andrew and Michelle, it was perfect!??

Great location, Great facilities, Great hosts, had a Great time will definitely be going back?? Toni Mick and family.

The pod is an excellent base for touring West Cornwall and its situation overlooking Mounts Bay is idyllic. Andrew and Michelle are excellent hosts.

We had a wonderful stay. The owners made such a effort to ensure we had everything we needed and more. Really lovely and spotlessly clean pods and we had a gorgeous cornish hamper and vase of flowers as a welcome. Thank you!

We stayed for 2 weeks in Scenic Bay which has a lovely view of St Michaels Mount and the bay. The accomodation was excellent and the owners very helpful and friendly. A great holiday and we hope to return there soon.

The pod has been really well thought through and designed to make the most of the space, including space under the bed that can fit 3 carry on suitcases. The view is amazing and even though it was quite windy we could sit warm and comfortable inside and still see everything. The owners are really friendly and there was a gorgeous hamper of local food and drink ready when we arrived

An excellent stay, with amazing hosts, views and utter tranquility! Thanks

The owners were very kind and accommodating. Lovely welcome basket and cleaned very well for our arrival. Beautiful location with stunning view and lots to see and do in the area. Pod had everything we needed. Will definitely be returning as we had a lovely time. Thank you!

Friendly host. Beautiful setting above a farmer’s field with St Michael’s Mount in the distance. Comfy bed & sofa. Great that there is a kitchen and it’s own toilet/shower. We had the field to ourselves so it was beautifully peaceful. Perfect for the two of us. Hope to visit again.

We had a lovely stay in this excellent clamping Pod with fantastic views looking at the ocean and St Michaels mount. Definitely recommended.

Scenic Bay was a lovely, way to spend a winter break in Cornwall and we would highly recommend it as an alternative to more traditional types of property. It was an excellent way to relax, enjoy the view and chill. We would definitely consider going again......particularly in winter when Cornwall is quiet!

This pod was brilliant there was every thing in it that you needed. right down to toilet rolls in the bathroom I would recommend it to anyone .

A truly unique & amazing find overlooking St Micheals Mt.

Made a great getaway following mine and my wife's wedding. Would definitely return.

Fabulous views, owners, spec on interior and everything you could possibly need inside and out. My little boy loved the outdoor feel to our glamping adventure. The adults loved the luxury of the glamping pod having its own bathroom and kitchen. Well worth the money. We will hopefully be booking again.

Nice reception from owners, welcome basket of local foods was a lovely touch. Information pack within property extremely useful. Great introduction to glamping. Pods were bigger and better equipped than we thought they’d be. Fantastic views and a peaceful location, would definitely stay again.

Glamping at its finest. Every detail has been thought of. A wonderful setting with cracking views. I would highly recommend!

A hidden gem - highly recommend as a romantic getaway with magnificent views to St Michael’s Mount. Very thoughtful, cosy little place. We savoured every item in the welcome hamper, particularly the homemade scones. Will be back!

The owner of the pod was so lovely. Checked up on us the fay we arrived and offered to drop us at the train station the day we wanted to leave. I loved staying at the scenic bay. Had i known the pod will be fully equipped, i would have prepared to cook a lot of food while staying. It was such a romantic getaway for my boyfriend and I. We wished we had booked to stay longer.

Had a fantastic week in our pod, it’s in a great location and the views are amazing. The pod has everything you need, it’s spacious and even has a proper hob and oven. Andrew and Michelle made us really welcome. We will definitely be returning.

When we arrived we were overwhelmed by the beautiful view , as we entered the pod it was amazing everything was so thought out right to sitting in bed and being able to see st michaels mount , we were welcomed with a basket of fresh strawberries, scones, clotted cream, jam and shortbread, which was very thoughtful, there was even tea,coffee,sugar and milk in the fridge , there was even a torch for when we walked home from the local pub in the , we will definitely be booking again for next year .

Perfect place for a short getaway to R&R. Would fully recommend, but if you're a four, it's gonna be a tight squeeze!

A very warm welcome with fresh produce & treats after a 6 hour journey. Everything has been thought about for a comfy & cosy stay. Great location for visiting some beautiful places. The view from the pod takes your breath away. What a find!!!??

Scenic bay is a fantastic camping pod with everything you need for a hassle free holiday in a stunning location. What more could you ask for!

Wonderfully cosy place to stay. With fabulous views to enjoy.

Great Pod, Great Location, Great Owners, Spectacular views - everything is well thought out. We will certainly return and wouldn't hesitate to recommend.

A very comfortable and well-constructed pod in a stunning setting.

Highly recommended, this is glamping in comfort! A perfect summer location with breathtaking views. Clean, beautiful and welcoming.

Fantastic property great views, the owners were friendly and some nice welcome touches with scones and home made jam ! We will be back soon

Scenic Bay is a real gem. The pod is finished to an incredibly high standard, the hosts are welcoming and available if you need anything, and the views are one of a kind! So glad we found this place, we'll be booking again.
