The Shepherd’s Hut

We’ve been undecided all summer as to what to do for a proper break. Stay somewhere in England, back to our favourite spot in Cornwall, somewhere new or just crash on the beach for an all inclusive week abroad. Given the stunning summer we’ve had this year, I am really glad we didn’t go overseas.

I was in two minds about whether to share this place or not as I think we’ve found a real gem and part of me does wants to be really selfish and keep it all to myself!

In the end, we opted for a week somewhere new, and having found this converted shepherd’s hut online, we found a week we were free and made a booking. On arriving, it seemed even more lovely than online.

Rather than being one tiny retreat, the accommodation is spread across two different ‘huts’. The first (the green one above) contains the bedroom, shower room and enough of a miniature kitchen for you to rustle up a breakfast without needing to leave- plenty of pans, crockery etc, a 2 ring hob, sink and a decent size fridge.

It’s a really cosy little getaway with this huge, snug little bed with cushions and blankets galore.

The whole place had such gorgeous attention to detail with a seaside theme, fresh from the garden flowers and many an ornament.

The second hut contained the living accommodation, with a larger kitchen area (complete with every gadget you could ever wish for!). Both huts also have their own wood burner, which we  were actually disappointed not to be able to use given that the weather was so warm throughout our stay. Both the living and the bedroom areas have televisions with DVD players and we spent many a night snuggled on the sofa or in bed watching our latest addiction, Breaking Bad.

And if all that wasn’t enough, there is a huge amount of outside space with five (yes, five!) different seating areas, a patio complete with BBQ and Murphy Oven, a lawned area, flowerbeds and a gorgeous wildflower meadow.

There was also a very friendly neighbouring cat, who came to keep us company in the garden.

All in all, I was actually really sad to leave. Whilst I think this might be a bit on the chilly side later in the year, there are the woodburners and enough blankets to keep you nice and cosy. I see a return trip on the horizon before too long. Now what was I saying about there being so many other places to visit…

Let’s just keep this place our little secret though? Shhh.
