Shepherd's Hut in Cornwall: Picture perfect Teg, our utterly lovely hut with soulful charm. Nestled in the Cornish countryside and close to the sunny seaside town of Porthleven, this dog-friendly retreat offers an idyllic escape to nature.
Teg is quite simply a dream. Arriving to this pretty little shepherd's hut is like something out of a story book. Winding country lanes lead you to this perfect spot that has views across rambling countryside and right out to the ocean. The outside space is immaculately presented with beautiful plant pots, wildflowers and orchard trees, creating a paradise for the butterflies and bees. And, when you step inside your humble abode you can't help but smile at the truly charming interiors. A pastel palette runs throughout this little haven, with bespoke artwork dotted along the walls. Welcome to Teg, our country chic hideaway nestled in the most wonderful spot for exploring the very best that Cornwall has to offer.
If you are looking for a pocket-sized paradise in the countryside, then Teg is the hideaway for you. The interior of this handcrafted hut has been carefully thought out. With the cosy double bed to the left of the hut, dainty dining space in the middle and compact kitchen, this heavenly abode is perfectly equipped for a glamping getaway. The window at the foot of the bed allows you to awake to stunning countryside views. Open the window and let the fresh air and sound of morning bird song float through the hideaway. There is no TV at Teg, so you can simply switch off the outside world and unwind with a good book. You'll find an array of books, such as The Salt Path on the shelf by the bed and there's also a lovely radio for those all-important morning tunes to put a spring in your step! The shower room is at the far end of the hut and is idyllic for freshening up after a day of walking the Cornish coast path. The kitchen is equipped with a double ring electric hob, kettle and the sweetest little fridge. If you fancy cooking alfresco, the fire pit is great for cooking over wood-fire. Pick up some local produce from Porthleven and enjoy a sunny evening barbecuing in the garden. You can even whip up some delicious campfire meals in the cooking bowl that sits above the flames.
Step outside and sink into the peaceful ambience. There are so many spaces to sit and watch the world go by. From the picnic table to the carefully placed bench, the perfect place of sipping on your morning coffee and soaking up the summer sunshine. There are also two deck chairs for you to use, just the spot for enjoying a G & T as the sun goes down. The lovely owners of Teg live in the beautiful cottage at the end of the garden. Teg still has plenty of privacy, with its own exclusive garden, which is for your use only. You'll probably notice the owner's magnificent wildflowers growing over the hedge and you'll be able to enjoy these pretty pops of colour dotted throughout your hideaway during your stay. If you'd like to purchase a posy to take home with you, this can be arranged with the owner during your stay.
Out and About
As if Teg wasn't dreamy enough, the location just takes this hideaway to a whole new level. Nestled in a peaceful Cornish village, there are plenty of footpaths to be explored right from your doorstep. If you fancy going a little further afield, you'll find a whole array of gorgeous locations to explore. Post card pretty Porthleven is round 10 minutes' drive away and is a gorgeous fishing town full of independent eateries and shops. The Ship Inn is a must for a local pint with sea views and we highly recommend The Square for a romantic meal out. Nauti But Ice is a fabulous spot for a morning coffee and for a quick lunch you can't beat Ced's Bagels! The likes of Falmouth aren't far and even the Helford is within easy reach, wonderful for walkers and wild swimmers. And if you fancy heading down to the Lizard Peninsula there is so much to explore. From Kynance Cove to Cadgwith, you really are spoilt for choice. The North coast is only about a 20-minute drive away. Pack a beach picnic and head to Godrevy for a day of sunbathing on sandy shores or why not visit the iconic St Michaels Mount? We told you Teg is in the ideal position for exploring the very best that Cornwall has to offer!
