Shepherd's hut in Cornwall with sea views: Welcome to pretty Pippin. Our truly lovely hut with unbeatable sea views, settled in the most majestic paradise for exploring a very special corner of Cornwall.
As you stroll along the cut grass path and through wildflowers to your picturesque hut on the hill, you won't quite believe the view that stretches out in front of you. Pippin is anything, but ordinary. Nothing short of an absolute dream and we promise that from the moment you are arrive, you will simply fall head over heels in love with this magical little hideaway. This special hut's name was carefully chosen by the lovely owner, as the name Pippin means 'to travel'. The perfect fit, as this is the idyllic hideaway for all adventure seekers to journey to.
Nestled in the corner of a luscious grassy meadow and surrounded by beautiful leafy trees, the location is simply stunning. Not to mention the heart melting view across Restronguet creek, the Carrick Roads Estuary and out to the River Fal. Pippin offers the absolute best of both worlds, with countryside charm and glistening ocean views; and the magic doesn't stop here. Step inside your humble abode and you will be charmed by the effortless style of this cosy hideaway. The kitchen is perfectly equipped with an oven (a real luxury in a shepherd's hut), double ring electric hob, kettle and fridge with ice compartment, to prep delicious holiday meals. There's even a wood-burner to keep you cosy once the sun dips beyond the horizon, not to mention the chic shower room tucked away to the right behind a gorgeous oak door. Perfect for freshening up after a day on the water. And when it's time to rest your head, sink into the sumptuous double bed and luxurious linens, which promise a peaceful night's sleep.
When the dawn chorus calls, pop the kettle on, open the French doors and climb back into bed with a freshly brewed cup of coffee. Breathe in the fresh countryside meadow views and listen to the radio as you awake in your heavenly hut and start to think about the day's adventures. Why not stroll down to Weir Beach (only a five-minute walk from the hut) and embrace an early morning, wild swim at this hidden little cove, before returning to cook a scrumptious brunch to be enjoyed alfresco. Once you arrive, there's really no need to step back into your car as there's so much to explore in the local area, by foot, kayak, stand up paddle board or boat. Or, we wouldn't blame you if you simply wanted to stay put at your private retreat and while away the hours with a good book. Once the suns glow slowly begins to fade, pour yourself a glass of your favourite and perch upon the hand carved love seat, light the rustic fire pit and enjoy a unique cooking experience with a dazzlingly sea view as your backdrop.
It really doesn't get more romantic than a retreat to Pippin. Star lit evenings, toasting marshmallows upon the fire pit await, as well as gentle strolls to the Pandora inn (the most picturesque pub in Cornwall which is only 10 minutes' walk away), picnics in the meadow, leisurely lie ins and sunny beach days. The hut is also dog-friendly, meaning your beloved four legged friend doesn't have to miss our on the adventure! We told you, there's nowhere in the world like Pippin. Our pretty little hut nestled within a hidden corner of Cornwall.
