Loved our stay at the hut. A well needed relaxed holiday in the middle of the countryside. Loved the lack of the usual city life noises, instead the sounds of animals, nothingness and the occasional tractor going past! Which we did love. Our host could not simply do enough for us, a lovely genuine person. We really enjoyed the tub and everything waRead mores just perfect. We will recommend to others for sure! Would also recommend popping to Lydford Gorge, it was amazing and well worth the visit. Hide

Lovely property, very clean and tidy. Nice little welcome pack on arrival. The owner was really lovely. It says its on a working farm but other than the animals you can see, you wouldnt even know as it was so quiet. Not that we minded noise as we love farms! I took my husband away for his birthday and he was over the moon with the property, he cantRead more wait to go back again. Hide

This was a lovely treat to ourselves. So relaxing to come back after a day exploring Cornwall to the comfortable spacious hottub. Privacy and gorgeous view. Only simple cooking is possible in the little hut, 1 pit. It did not have a frying pan.
