Location (Cornwall)

Perfectly combing the fun of glamping and the luxury of self-catering, this fabulous shepherds hut is built to a high spec with eco-friendly principles and is perfect for couples seeking romance, fun and luxury, or families with room to accommodate two children.

Accommodation and facilities:


  • Glamping is all about being outdoors, right? The Shepherds Hut won't disappoint, sitting in a field where people camp with lots of space, distant sea views and plenty of fresh air. The hut has its own private hot tub which seats four guests and an outdoor seating area with fire-pit for toasting marshmallows over the open flames or BBQ'ing under the star-lite sky. The hot tub may be used at any time up until 22:00 when guests are requested not to use it to ensure other guests camping are not disturbed. Shared facilities available on the farm include a boules court; indoor games room with a pool table, as well as access to explore the farm and its grounds. Parking is not an issue with plenty of space for vehicles.


  • Steps lead-up into the hut. During the warmer months you can let the fabulous views drift in through the French doors (the sunsets are amazing!).
  • The living space has as much wow factor as the setting, providing an unusually large amount of space for a shepherds hut with oak flooring throughout. A comfy sofa allows you to watch your favourite programmes on the wall-mounted smart TV or sit quietly in front of the log burning stove; A clever folding table provides a place to perch with a glass of wine or extend for dining; stylish slate tiles compliment the contemporary shower room with WC and wash basin; and the well-equipped kitchen provides everything for self-catering with granite topped units, oven/hob/grill, microwave, fridge (with freezer box for ice for your 'sun downers'), kettle and toaster.
  • Complimentary bath robes, super-fast broadband, luxury bedding and a Nespresso coffee machine are just a few of the extra special luxuries you can enjoy when you stay.
  • The bedroom with its king-size bed is the perfect place to cocoon yourself in comfort at the end of the day and has bunks above where two children can sleep. There is also clothes storage.
