Juniper Shepherd's Hut
4.1 miles NW of Falmouth
Sleeps 2 | dog friendly
Shepherd's Hut in Cornwall: Our irresistible shepherd's hut offers the very best of Cornish glamping and with a special twist - it's uniquely eco-friendly, too. Chill out in your tucked-away romantic retreat, stroll the beautiful grounds or get active in the gym or indoor heated swimming pool.
Say goodbye to the hectic rush and bustle of day-to-day life. At Melody Farm Shepherd's Huts you can get busy doing nothing the whole day through. We're giving it a gold medal in get-away-from-it-all relaxation. And here's why… Juniper sits in a quiet and pretty orchard within the grounds of The Emerald, an award-winning zero carbon eco development set in five acres of gorgeous Cornish countryside. Take a cup of coffee or a glass of bubbly onto your private outdoor area and unwind while you listen to the birdsong, watch out for squirrels or maybe even catch a glimpse of a shy deer. You can sizzle something up on the barebecue, catch some rays on a sunny day or simply count the stars at night. Sheer. Bliss. Inside your hand-built hideaway (made by renowned specialists Blackdown Shepherd's Huts) is everything you'll need for a luxurious holiday, from fluffy towels to free WiFi. The super-comfy double bed ingenuously folds away (linen and all) to become a dining-area during the day, and there's a perfectly formed little kitchen with a fridge and two-ring hob, plus all the gadgets you could want for conjuring up delicious meals. The en suite bathroom has a loo, basin, wall-mounted heater and powerful shower, and the whole place is insulated to within an inch of its life, making it cool in summer and cosy in winter. The icing on the cake? A wood-burning stove with all logs supplied to keep you toasty whatever the weather.
We mentioned The Emerald - well, here's the thing. This fabulous boutique retreat, where there is also a neighbouring shepherd's hut, five hi-spec, cedar-clad holiday houses and a more traditional holiday cottage, has so much to offer. Make the most of the indoor heated swimming pool with colour-changing lights (for funky night-time dips), tennis court, cricket nets, croquet lawn, table tennis and even a gym. And there's more: a pretty wildflower meadow, a peaceful pond with a gazebo and lots of secret pathways for you to wander dreamily through the trees. A secluded slice of rural heaven.
Out and About
Although it's off the beaten track enough for total chill-out seclusion, Juniper Shepherd's Hut is perfectly positioned to enjoy all the wonderful things that everyone loves about Cornwall. The beaches and sailing waters of the south coast are just a short jaunt in one direction, while the magnificent cliffs, sandy dunes and surfing waves of the north coast are a quick hop in the other. You're between the maritime delights of Falmouth - where you'll find great beaches, all kinds of watersports and plenty of shops, bars, galleries and restaurants - and the county town of Truro, with its cobbled streets, independent boutiques, great cafés and restaurants and a pretty Victorian cathedral. Take the coastal path and meander towards the beautiful Helford River valley and the Lizard peninsula, or tramp the network of public footpaths that take you across lush countryside and rolling fields. Cycle from coast to coast on a dedicated trail, get your clubs out for a golfing treat, explore incredible gardens with exotic tropical planting or even, for an extra special treat, hire a classic car and cruise the country lanes in an open-top Morgan.
Steps up in to Shepherd's Hut into open plan living-room with kitchen, dining and bedroom areas. Double bed, wood-burner, 2 ring hob and fridge (with ice-box) and en suite shower-room with shower, WC and wash-basin.
