Forget-Me-Not

Praa Sands

Sleeps 2

From £333

Shepherd's hut in Cornwall: See straight out to sea from a romantic shepherd's hut for two with all mod cons - just a hop, skip and jump from the beach. There's even a fire-pit for when you get that toasted marshmallow feeling.

General

A king-size bed, super-deep and comfy mattress, well-equipped mini-kitchen, walk-in wet room - are you in a luxury hotel, by any chance? Actually, no. You're in a romantic shepherd's hut for two from which you can see straight out to sea - what's more, if you step out of your front door you'll be on the beach within 20 minutes.

Gorgeous Forget-Me-Not was hand-built in the Cotswolds and is equipped with all mod-cons, such as a two-ring hob, full-size fridge, a combination microwave, toaster, a panel heater for warmth and a foldaway dining table. Everything, in fact, that you could possibly want for a glamping getaway.

When it comes to washing the sand out from between your toes, this place has it covered. Just behind the hut is Forget-Me-Not's very own 'beach hut', nine feet square, which has steps up to a huge walk-in wet-room with hot shower, flushing toilet, wash-basin, heated towel rail, hairdryer and plenty of space to hang up your beach towels or put down your walking boots. Talk about luxury camping.

Forget-Me-Not is set in two-and-a-half acres of flat grassland that's sheltered by trees and coastal hedging (plenty of birdsong!) and with awesome, panoramic sea views over Praa Sands village and out to the Atlantic beyond. Set back from the main road, the site is 200 yards up a private lane, with just the owners and five touring pitches nearby, and one other slightly larger shepherd's hut, Mr Blue Sky, which is set in its own grounds next door with a hedge for privacy. Forget-Me-Not has its own private, grassed area, with a parking space, garden furniture and fire-pit barbecue, should you come over with that camp-fire feeling. Now, toasted marshmallow, anyone?

Out and About

We've already mentioned nearby Praa Sands beach, a gentle stroll down the hill, where you'll find a mile of golden sands, a pub, a restaurant and a couple of seasonal cafés. Walkers - alert! You can also join the South West Coast Path here. Or jump in the car for a ten-minute drive to the unmissable St Michael's Mount at Marazion or the pretty fishing village of Porthleven. Twenty minutes gets you to the famous artists' town of St Ives, and in between there are stunning beaches dotted all along this coast, from Perranuthnoe, five minutes in one direction to Rinsey, five minutes in the other.
