Shepherd's hut with sea views in Cornwall: Our blissful bolthole is glamping personified - fresh air by the bucketload with mod cons galore. It proves that you can get back to nature without sacrificing one iota of comfort.


Style? Spot on. Views? Stupendous. Comfort? Definitely. Welcome to Tregwelan Shepherd's Hut, a truly amazing retreat that's perfect for a romantic getaway or simply to relax and recharge in the glorious countryside. This cute little wooden hut, traditionally designed and hand-made to the highest quality, has been designed with more mod cons than you can shake a stick at. Located along a partly unmade track, it feels like a million miles from anywhere, though it's actually just a 20-minute stroll along the Camel Trail from Padstow (Rick Stein! Fish and chips! Boutique shops!). Except for the friendly but unobtrusive owners (you're tucked in the corner of their large garden), the nearest neighbours are 150 metres away, so prepare to chillax with nothing but the sounds of nature and rural life around you. And did we mention the views? Oh my word. Drink in the panorama of the Camel Estuary, all rolling green fields, ever-changing tidal views and endless skies. Come rain or shine, you won't be able to take your eyes off it. Open up the doors of the hut and breathe in that fresh air, or step just outside and you can set up the sun loungers to have a snooze, grill some burgers on the barbie or toast some s'mores on the fire pit (it's a sandwich of chocolate, toasted marshmallow and crackers - yum - you know you want to!). Inside, you'll find everything you need to create a home from home, including a well-equipped kitchen with an induction hob, plus a fridge, sink, some worktop and storage space, a kettle, Dualit toaster and DAB radio. There's superfast WiFi, should you wish to keep in touch with the outside world, and lovely touches include glass jars with breakfast provisions and beautiful crockery made by the owner's sister. The generous dining table with bench seats and bookshelves above converts with a nifty pull into a double bed - a lovely space for a long, lazy lie-in while gazing at the view and planning a tasty fry up. And did you wonder whether the hut would be warm enough? Well, let's just say that not only is there a fabulous wood-burning stove for toasting your tootsies, but there's even an electric panel heater, just to bump up the temperature if you really need it. In the en suite shower-room (oh yes, indeedy) there's a proper flushing loo, a great shower, hot and cold running water and even a heated towel rail. Fabulous. The only question is: when are you going to come back?

Out and About

When staying at Tregwelan, exploring the Camel Trail (an 18 mile surfaced trail that runs from Wenfordbridge to Padstow, via Bodmin and Wadebridge, along a disused railway line) is a must - it's right on your doorstep, so you could leave the car parked up for your entire stay if you wanted to. This is a fantastic place for walkers and cyclists alike, you can venture out straight from the hut on foot or take your bikes - there's even a safe place to store them by the hut. A short hop alongside the Camel Estuary (a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty) will take you to Padstow, where there are heaps of shops, some great galleries and plenty of pubs, cafés and restaurants to choose from. There might even be a festival on during your visit - there are lots of them throughout the year. The Trail will also lead you to Wadebridge, another bustling town, or you could catch a boat across the estuary to fashionable Rock, where there are watersports for the active or plenty of shops for the label-lover. Golfers will enjoy the courses at St Enodoc and Trevose or, if it's beaches you're after, you're spoilt for choice, with Constantine Bay, Harlyn Bay, Polzeath, Daymer Bay and Rock - none of them more than a 20-minute drive away.


Steps up to Shepherd's Hut with open plan living-room with kitchen, dining and bedroom areas. Wood-burner, 2 ring induction hob, fridge, toaster, kettle and double bed. Shower-room with shower, WC and wash-basin.
