Shepherd's hut in Cornwall with sea views: Imagine waking to glistening ocean views, the scent of countryside meadow flowers and the sound of total peace and tranquillity. Welcome to Tamar.
Hidden away within Mount Edgcumbe estate, Tamar Hut has the most heart-warming charm, that you will fall in love with from the moment you arrive. Hand crafted in a timeless, traditional style this gorgeous shepherd's hut sits proudly within a rural meadow, overlooking breath-taking views of the River Tamar, Plymouth City and out to Dartmoor. The wholesome exterior houses a cosy and quaint interior which has been cleverly designed to accommodate up to four 4 guests. Perfect for a young family looking to escape the everyday, or just as idyllic for whisking your loved one away on a romantic retreat to nature.
The cosy bunk beds allow little ones to rest their heads after adventure filled days, while a fold down double bed sits perfectly on top the dining table and boasts views of your stunning surroundings. Cosy and comfortable, a peaceful night's sleep is promised at this pocket-sized paradise. Fold the bed away and you'll find the cleverly fitted dining table, perfect for romantic dining if the weather isn't being so kind. The wood-burner, with its warm glow ensures the hut stays snug on cooler evenings. When it's time to prep some delicious holiday delights, pop around the back of the hut and enter Tamar's rustic kitchen area. Equipped with a 2-ring gas hob and grill, kettle and a cool box that sits underneath the work top. You can collect extra ice packs from the office during your stay, which is only a short stroll away. Tamar Hut is completely off-grid, making it the perfect retreat back to nature, there are two USB charging ports. You'll find the toilet and shower block are separate from the hut, but easy to access and perfect for freshening up after a day at the beach.
Once you've settled in, wander outside, breathe in the fresh air and sink into the heavenly panoramic view. Feel the lush grass beneath your feet as you roam around the blissful meadow and unwind with a holiday read at one of the many dreamy areas to be enjoyed. As dawn turns to dusk, keep cosy by the bespoke firepit, toast marshmallows and gaze up to the starlit sky.
Sharing this idyllic site with Tamar is its sister hut Lynher Hut (4755), perfect if you have friends who want to holiday with you, but also set far enough apart from one another and screened for complete privacy.
Out and About
Once you've made the most of Tamar's direct surroundings, venture further into the park to explore the historic house and Grade I listed gardens, artisan shops and a network of trails that wind their way around the parkland, best discovered on an all-terrain Segway. Join the alpacas for a walk with your little ones for an experience to remember. The miniature railway is also fantastic for children and for some fun on the water, there's paddle boarding, kayaking, canoeing and even wild swimming to be enjoyed. Need to refuel, The Orangery restaurant and the little café in the stables serve up some wholesome treats and just off the estate The Cremyll Arms and The Canteen at Maker are popular with locals and visitors alike.
Should you fancy a change of scenery, leave the estate behind and discover this enchanting 'forgotten corner' of Cornwall. Being a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, the landscape and coastline are breath-taking, so don't forget your walking boots. Wander the narrow streets through the picturesque, twinned villages of Kingsand and Cawsand while the large stretch of sandy beach along Whitsand Bay is perfect for a lazy, sun-soaked beach day. The foot ferry from either Cremyll or Cawsand takes you across the water to Plymouth, a city steeped in maritime history with lots to see and do. However, if you decided to just stay put during your stay at Tamar, we wouldn't blame you. With that view and a gin and tonic in hand, you really will feel a whole world away from reality.
