An authentic shepherd's hut set on a small, coastal sheep farm in West Cornwall. The hut offers a true taste of the life as a bygone shepherd but with a little extra comfort! Dogs welcome.


The Shepherd's Shack is an authentic shepherd's hut that has been built by myself with the help of a few friends. It is based on the traditional design and layout of a Nineteenth Century living van, and has, where possible, been built from recycled and local materials. I hope that you might feel that the resident shepherd has just stepped out to attend to his, or her, flock.

The hut has it's own shower room with basin and compost loo. There is a small kitchen area with a gas stove, sink and fridge. Simple cooking equipment is included.

The hut is fully insulated with, you guessed it, sheeps wool and is warmed by a wood burning stove.

There is a raised box bed, with a pull out dining table, two stools, a small wardrobe and plenty of storage. The bed has a sheep's wool duvet and there is a small sofa in front of the wood burner to keep you warm on cooler nights.

The hut is set in its own wee wild flower meadow with beautiful views to the sea and moors. Parking is right next to the hut.

Общение с гостями

Life can be busy on the farm and so I am not always around but am never far away and usually on hand in the evenings if you need anything. I am more than happy to chat with you about hidden gems to check out and lovely places to eat. If you want total peace and quiet that's fine too. If you fancy a sheepie experience the girls will be happy to meet you, especially if you have a digestive biscuit or banana to hand!

Другие важные подробности

The Shepherds Shack is largely off grid......your water comes from a well, hot water is run off lpg, heating comes from a wood burner and there is a compost loo. The hut is cleaned using eco products and good old elbow grease and linen is hung out to dry in the sun. There is currently no wifi in the hut however you are welcome to come up to the house to use your device. Mobile signal in the area is pretty patchy!

If you have a car with a very low suspension, I am thinking Lamborghini here, it is advisable to park at the bottom of the track. I can fetch your luggage in my landrover.

I am very happy to accommodate dogs but please bring their own bed/s. Please bear in mind that there are livestock on the farm so keep your furry friends under supervision. I have two working Border Collies, Floss and Billy, who are very friendly and some ducks and hens who are likely to pay you a visit!

- where possible, use resources with care;

The Shepherds Hut is located in a great position with a wide view out to sea, across fields. It's close to St Ives and Penzance and loads of amazing beaches, also Zennor which has a idyllic country pub called the Tinners Arms. The Gunard is also close by if you fancy a nice meal. The Shepherds hut is fantastic, Sarah built it herself and has created a really fabulous retreat. Loads of great touches and details, it feels really authentic. Super comfortable and cosy.

What an amazing spot to stay! The Shepherd's Hut is just gorgeous, every detail beautiful and handmade, the location stunning. I stayed for 5 nights and wish it had been longer. The walking from the hut is fantastic –– close to the sea and the moors –– but staying in reading by the wood burner is just as lovely. Sarah was incredibly kind and helpful, I was provided everything I could have wanted for my stay and more. I am 7mos pregnant and was travelling alone (and without a car), and this was just the perfect relaxation destination for my last bit of pre-baby time. Thank you to Sarah (and the dogs!) for such a lovely time. I am dreaming of the next time I can stay on!

Sarah's Shepherds shack is a delightful escape from everyday life. It has everything you need, and has been lovingly restored, a real unique little gem.

We stayed at the Shepherd's Shack for 4 nights. Sarah was welcoming and accommodating and the hut was well appointed with everything that you need. The compost toilet and shower in the hut bathroom are both very user-friendly - the bathroom was much bigger than I expected. Everything was clean, with thoughtful extras included like soap, tea bags, milk in the fridge - not something you get everywhere! There were even biscuits for us and the dog too! We ran out of kindling after our second night (we lit the wood burner each night) so bought more but had we seen Sarah sooner, she was going to offer to give us more - we kept ourselves to ourselves but if you need anything, Sarah is more than happy to help! The compost toilet was refreshed after 3 days - this would be our only small critique, it was getting a little full by then but I think it is usually emptied after 2 days and by no means was it a problem. We loved the rural location and how cosy and comfortable we were in the hut, regardless of the weather outside. We explored the coastline in the day time so were only really around at the accommodation for the evening. We ate in for three evenings - it's easy to cook on the stove or in the small oven. We ate at both the Gurnard's Head (at Treen nr St Ives) and The Old Coastguard (Mousehole), both relatively local places not to be missed. I would definitely stay here again, and will tell my friends about it! Thank you so much, Sarah.

This hut is a place for escape and seclusion if you want to spend quality time with a loved one it is perfect. There are amazing walks near by and beautiful views. Our 6 month old puppy loved it there
