This tranquil retreat sits on the Devon/Cornwall border making it the perfect base to explore these two beautiful counties. Enjoy the snapping of twigs beneath your walking boots with picturesque trails from your doorstep, and even take the short 2-mile trip to reach the National Trust’s unique cliff-top Hawker’s Hut where you can hop on the rugged yet beautiful South West Coast Path. Just a short drive away, you can reach the unspoilt National Trust beaches of Duckpool (4 miles) and Sandymouth (6 miles), whilst the closest town of Bude (10 miles) is certainly worth a visit with its strong array of cafés, pubs and restaurants. Further afield, make sure to visit iconic attractions including Tintagel (28 miles) and Boscastle (24 miles).

Positioned next to the owner’s residence, step inside via three steps into this beautiful shepherd's hut. You’ll find yourself in the perfectly designed and comfortable living/sleeping area which boasts a wood burner for chilly nights. It’s the perfect space for relaxing after a day of exploring. The hut also features a TV so you can enjoy your favourite programmes while resting. At the end of the day, retire to the king-size bed which forms part of this compact yet perfectly appointed space. The modest kitchen is also beautifully presented and offers all you need for simple suppers. Completing the inside is an en-suite bathroom, making for a comfortable stay in this beautifully rustic environment.

Located outside and to the front of the shepherd's hut, a lovely, secluded patio area has been provided for your relaxation and enjoyment. This boasts a private hot tub to sink into and relax your muscles. The area also provides comfortable outdoor seating, a BBQ and fabulous views across the surrounding countryside.

This was the most perfect spot for a quiet break. Very little WIFI which was perfect. Accomodation was spotless. Very comfortable bed with plenty of pillows. Lovely private hot tub. On arrival there was milk, wine and biscuits. Log fire was already made up ready to light. The hosts were lovely.
