Shepherd’s Hut in Cornwall with an outdoor bathtub: Discover an enchanting hideaway nestled in a pretty garden close to the striking Cornish coastline. Spend your days exploring the beautiful countryside before relaxing in the alfresco roll-top bathtub.


This dog-friendly shepherd’s hut has everything you could want for a blissful getaway. Spend time soaking in the outdoor bathtub in total tranquillity before whiling away a few leisurely hours next to the fire pit, swapping stories over hot chocolate (or your favourite tipple). Curl up next to the wood burner for a cosy evening delving into the pages of a beloved book or, if you’re feeling competitive, show off your prowess at one of the board games provided. Your four-legged friend is warmly welcomed and will love exploring the gorgeous garden, as well as the stunning Cornish countryside on your doorstep.

Step Inside

Enter Owl’s Rest and discover your own haven away from the outside world. The snug interiors are enhanced with pops of teal and thoughtful decorative touches that make this sweet shepherd’s hut an idyllic escape. In the living space the plush two-seater sofa is perfect for curling up and getting toasty in front of the wood burner after a long day exploring the Cornish countryside. There’s a smart TV for movie nights and a selection of board games ready to play. Beyond the living space, you’ll find the dreamy bedroom with cosy linens and ample storage space for any belongings. Enjoy leisurely lie-ins as the golden morning light streams through the window. Once you’ve awoken, head to the other end of the hut, where you’ll find a kitchen complete with a two-ring electric hob, toaster, and an air fryer for rustling up whatever you fancy. There’s a table with two chairs where you can enjoy your culinary creations. The beautifully-designed bathroom features a waterfall shower and a heated towel rack for a luxurious touch, perfect for rinsing off the salt after a sea swim in one of the nearby coves.


The focal point of the charming gardens surrounding Owl’s Rest has to be the lovely roll-top bathtub. Start your morning with a soak as you listen to the sounds of the natural world waking up around you, or slip into the soothing water after a busy day’s adventures. This is just the perfect place to melt your cares away.

You will also find a fire pit which doubles as a barbecue. Whether you want to cook up a feast in the great outdoors or simply toast a marshmallow or two as night falls, it’s a magical spot to snuggle up with your favourite person. Enjoy your firepit feast or a glass of your preferred tipple in the sweet alfresco seating area on a pretty patio bordered by beautiful greenery. Depending on when you stay, you may have the company of a small flock of ducks who call an enclosed area of the garden home for part of the year. If you listen carefully after dark you might also be able to hear the soft calls of the resident owls whom the hut is named after.


The area around Owl’s Rest is delightfully tranquil. Nestled in a National Landscape which is also a designated Dark Skies area, you will be able to see nature at its most beautiful at every turn. Situated on the Lizard Peninsula, this hideaway is perfectly positioned for exploring some of Cornwall’s most stunning coastline, including the breathtaking Kynance Cove. Pack your walking boots and hike along the South West Coast Path to really appreciate the rugged beauty. The Helford River is also easily accessible from Owl’s Rest, where you will find more lovely scenery and opportunities for exploring. Why not take your binoculars and try a spot of birdwatching? You could also try your hand at foraging along the banks and cook up your finds back at your hideaway. Browse the independent shops of nearby Porthleven and Helston to pick up local produce and handmade crafts, and check out the pretty fishing villages of Mullion and Coverack for seaside scenery. For animal lovers, the Cornish Seal Sanctuary is nearby at Gweek, and is the ideal place to indulge your love of wildlife and learn more about the seals who call British waters home.
