Our newly built Shepherds Hut is situated on our working beef and sheep farm. We are nestled in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and a World Heritage Site just outside the moorland village of Minions. Surrounded by breathtaking views of rolling countryside and steeped in history and heritage the local area has lots of places to explore. We are the perfect base for your Cornish Adventure, weather your seeking an active outdoors holiday or the chance to relax and unwind.

The space
This charming and delightful Shepherds Hut is situated in a paddock adjacent to our farmhouse which is about 60 meters away. It is completely self contained and is kitted out with everything you will need for your stay within the hut. Inside there is a well equipped kitchenette,with everything you need to rustle up a hearty breakfast, snack or picnic hamper. There is a kettle, toaster, microwave, fridge and a single hob. Tea,Coffe, Hot Chocolate and sugar is all provided for you. And a Cornish Cream Tea awaits you on arrival.
The hobbit wood burner will keep you snug and cosy on chillier evenings there are two large comfy carver chairs for you to sit by the fire, the perfect spot to snuggle up with a good book.
The bathroom is within the hut and has toilet, basin and shower. Soft, fluffy Bath towels are provided for you.
You have a small, peaceful private garden area for your sole use. Here you can enjoy the firepit with bbq grill and absorb the tranquility and beauty of the Cornish countryside. We are in a Dark Sky Designated Landscape so sit in the garden to enjoy the wonder and mystique of the night sky.
From the hut you can take some wonderful walks, the Cheesewring Quarry, the prehistoric site of Stowes Hill and the Hurlers Circles are within comfortable walking distance. Cheesewring Quarry and The Phoenix United Mine can both be seen from your hut window and garden. We are an ideal walkers base and many walks can be taken directly from the Shepherds Hut without even starting your car. What better way to really escape the hustle and bustle and enjoy the nature and countryside of Cornwall.
Private Parking is a very short walk from the hut, down the gravel path pictured. We are accessed up a short lane.
We are in a central location of Cornwall, the North Cornish beaches are a 40 minute drive and closer by is the seaside town of Looe. The Eden Project is just a 30 minute drive away. Or bring your bikes and take to the Camel Trail from Bodmin to Padstow via Wadebridge and beat the traffic jams.
