Cabin and shepherd’s hut with a hot tub in Cornwall: Settled in the heart of Cornwall, this eco-chic haven boasts a bubbling hot tub, quirky alfresco shower, wholesome interiors and far reaching countryside vistas. A dreamworthy staycation for two.
Creativity flows effortlessly throughout this bespoke hideout, consisting of a lovely cabin, gorgeous shepherd’s hut, sun-soaked deck and dreamy hot tub area, complimented by the far reaching views across the gentle Cornish countryside. All the ingredients for a soul-nourishing staycation. The hideaway is settled within a lush grassy meadow, with plants, wildflowers and the sound of birdsong surrounding you. Many of its features have been upcycled. We love the alfresco shower, which cleverly uses the owner's surfboard! Inside the cabin you’ll find the charming kitchen and living area, whilst the cosy bedroom sits within the shepherd’s hut to the left. This allows plenty of space for the two of you to enjoy. Embrace romantic moments during your stay; dining alfresco, snuggled beside the fire pit or in the warmth of the hot tub.
Feel a wave of serenity wash over your body upon arrival. The front of the cabin boasts a large sliding glass door, inviting you inside. This allows natural light to flood the space with ease, whilst also utilising the view. Soak up the sweeping countryside vista whilst perched on the comfy arm chairs, cuppa in hand. The cabin's interior echoes the natural outside world, with printed bird wallpaper, in keeping with the hideaway name. The kitchen is superbly equipped with everything you could wish for, including a stunning Smeg fridge with ice compartment, kettle, toaster, electric hob and a Ninja Foodi 8-in-1 Flip Mini Oven - perfect for air frying, grilling and toasting! You’ll find the shower-room to the right of the cabin, beautifully presented and perfect for freshening up after the day’s adventures. Step outside, and to the left you’ll find the wholesome shepherd’s hut. Here, you will be greeted with equally gorgeous interiors. The sumptuous double bed takes centre stage, adorned with soft linens for the dreamiest night sleep. There's also a sweet wardrobe, lovely set of draws and a chair within the bedroom.
Birdsong makes the most of indoor, outdoor living. Step onto the gorgeous covered decking, encompassed by wildflowers, plants and festoon lighting. Here, you can embrace an alfresco brunch, or intimate dinner under moonlight, no matter the season. The view is just idyllic, overlooking the tranquil meadow, cocooned by trees, all the way to the gentle rolling hills in the distance. Sunset dreamers, this one’s for you. The sun sets right before your eyes here, as pink and orange hues fill the sky and merge together like an oil painting, why not slip into the bubbling hot tub for a sunset tipple? There’s also an alfresco shower, positioned to assure privacy. So you can wash off salty hair after a day at the beach, or experience the magic of showering beneath the stars. Once the sun has slipped away, gather around the firepit with the one you love, toasting marshmallows and reminiscing over the day's adventures.
Birdsong has been handcrafted by the creative owners using a whole array of upcycled materials, including scaffold poles, reclaimed wood and metal, repurposed doors and windows. The cabin also has a living roof, planted to wildflowers, to encourage wildlife, birds and bees.
Situated in the heart of Cornwall, Birdsong is sublimely located to explore the rugged north coast and the wonders of the south coast. If you’re in search of long sandy beaches or are wanting to catch a wave, the north coast has an abundance to choose from. You can reach Watergate Bay in around 15 minutes - a real hub for surfers. Fistral Beach is also great for surfing, it even hosts Boardmasters surfing competition. Or why not enjoy an evening sundowner in its buzzing beach bar and watch from above. Continue along the coast to reach Mawgan Porth, another sandy beach or Bedruthan Steps, a wildly exposed coastal location where you can discover interesting rock formations and sea stacks. Perranporth, Holywell Bay and Crantock also sit on this coastline, all boasting sandy beaches and lovely eateries. After a day on Crantock Beach, be sure to stop for a bite to eat at Jam Jar Kitchen, serving the best wood fired pizzas and Aperol Spritz, offering you a taste of Italy during your time in Cornwall.
You’re also within easy reach of many of Cornwall’s charming seaside towns and villages. Padstow is around half an hour away, boasting a pretty harbour, lovely shops and a thriving foodie scene. You can also discover the Camel Estuary. Hop on the Camel Trail and explore the area by bike. The south coast is around half an hour away. Here, you’ll find the picturesque villages of Mevagissey, Gorran Haven and Charlestown, as well as the historic harbour town of Fowey. The famous Eden Project and The Lost Gardens of Heligan are also well worth adding to your itinerary, boasting beautiful botanical gardens. After a day of exploring the best that Cornwall has to offer, return to your heavenly hideout for a starlit soak in the bubbling hot tub… bliss!
