Shepherd's hut in Cornwall with sea views: Lose yourself in Mount Edgcumbe's invigorating natural landscapes at this incredibly lovely shepherd's hut, with idyllic views over tranquil country meadows and magical coastline.
Befitting of its historic setting, Lynher Hut has a real charm of bygone days, crafted in a timeless, traditional style that compliments its gorgeous rural surroundings. A wonderful exterior houses a cosy and subtle interior which has been cleverly designed to allow up to four 4 people comfortably experience the delights of this picture perfect paradise.
Cosy bunk beds allow younger members to rest their heads after a busy day of exploring, while a fold down double bed sits atop the dining table to provide a superbly snug spot to enjoy the captivating vistas outside. Fold the bed away and you'll discover a charming dining area with comfy seating for 4 surrounded by beautifully minimal storge spots for everything you will need on your relaxing retreat to nature. A gentle coastal breeze flows in through the rugged windows and fabulous Dutch double doors while the adorable wood burner ensures the hut stays cosy on cooler evenings, with its indulgent warm glow. When you fancy a bite to eat, pop round the back of the hut and enter Lynher's quirky kitchen area, that comes equipped with a 2-ring gas hob and grill. A cool box sits underneath the work top which can be topped up with ice packs from the office. As Lynher Hut is completely off-grid, you can switch off from the stresses of everyday life and enjoy a digital detox… the perfect glamping experience! There are two USB charging ports. You'll find the toilet and shower block are just a short stroll from the hut.
Once you've settled into the hut, wander outside and enjoy the spectacular panoramic views across the river Tamar. Feel the lush grass beneath your feet as you roam about the blissful meadow or unwind with your favourite book at one of the many inviting spots to relax outside. As day turns to dusk, keep those toes toasty by the bespoke firepit as you gaze up at the magical starry nights sky.
Sharing this idyllic site is its sister Tamar Hut (4754), ideal if you have friends who want to holiday with you, but also set away from the other and screened for added privacy.
Out and About
Once you've made the most of Lynher's immediate surroundings, venture further into the park to explore the historic house and Grade I listed gardens, artisan shops and the network of trails that wind their way around the parkland, best discovered on an all-terrain Segway. Joining the alpacas for a walk will delight younger members, as will the miniature railway and for some fun on the water, there's paddle boarding, kayaking, canoeing and even wild swimming to thrill. 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 fancy a change of scene, leave the estate and discover this magical 'forgotten corner' of Cornwall. Being designated an Area of outstanding natural beauty, the scenery and coastline is spectacular so don't forget those walking boots. Wander the narrow streets through the utterly charming, twinned villages of Kingsand and Cawsand while the large stretch of sandy beach along Whitsand Bay is perfect for a lazy, sun-soaked 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.
