Tregwelan Shepherd's Hut
1.2 miles SE of Padstow
Shepherd's hut in Cornwall: The view from this picturesque hut will honestly take your breath away. Close to the bustling fishing town of Padstow, this magical hut is the perfect example of a Unique hideaway.
This hut is well and truly 'off the well-worn-path'. As you travel through the country lanes, the first indication that you have reached your destination is the vast sea view in front of you. Tucked in the corner of the lovely owner's peaceful garden, you will find your idyllic space, a place to call home for the next few days. It's not only the captivating landscape that is exceptional about this romantic retreat. Every tiny detail has been thought through, in such a way that you will be making a shopping list for your own home. The tasteful interiors such as the bespoke rug and colourful, Middle Eastern style cushions, will transport you to another world. The quality, rustic crockery is just beautiful. Is it just us, or does a cup of tea taste better when it's in a good mug, not to mention when you can see the sea from where you rest your head? No detail is too small, and you will find everything you need for a comfortable stay.
The kitchen is well equipped to whisk up a scrumptious treat. Pop on the radio, poach yourself some eggs, mash the avocado and toast the sourdough for an alfresco breakfast, or get settled around the spacious dining table for a candle lit dinner, followed by a classic game of scrabble. Like all our accommodation there are quirky features throughout this shepherd's hut. The comfy, ready-made bed, folds down from the wall, giving you more space through the day to relax at this lovely abode. What could be more wonderful than returning to this little haven and lighting the wood burner after a cold winters day of exploring the coast path. That's what's so amazing about this unique escape, it's the perfect place to retreat too, all year round.
This blissful shepherd's hut isn't just dreamy inside, you have everything you could possibly desire outside. A fire pit to toast marshmallows on, wooden deckchairs to unwind in with a glass of chilled wine and new to 2021 the owners have built an outdoor shelter and bike store as well as a BBQ hut. With a bespoke BBQ to cook your summery feast upon, the option of using the new Ooni Pizza Oven and with Padstow on your doorstop, your dinner options are endless!
