- Escaping everything and enjoying doing…absolutely nothing!
- Star spotting under a completely dark sky (no street lights near here).
- Lighting the wood burner and getting cosy on cooler evenings.
- Learning to surf at nearby Gwithian beach.
With simple elegant styling much thought has gone into creating a relaxing yet practical space for two. The wood burner keeps things cosy on cooler evenings, settle in on the two comfy chairs with a bottle of red. You’ll be snug as a bug in bed too with quality linens and extra blankets if required.In the morning head up to the breakfast room where you can make tea, toast and charge phones. If you opt to barbecue just take the washing up to the house and it will be returned sparkling clean! There is a shower and WC for your sole use in the house just a short walk across the lawn – no communal shower blocks here. Battery lights and a radio are provided in the hut with electricity in the summer house approximately 100 yards away.
The hut sits in a meadow in the grounds of the owners' own home and two other holiday cottages. Nicely separated in a meadow setting beyond the owners gardens, the surroundings are tranquil and green. Throw down a blanket and snooze in the sunshine or dine alfresco at the table and chairs provided. Take a browse around the grounds to discover sculptures and the resident sheep!
Trevoole Shepherd’s Hut is set within the grounds of the owners home – Trevoole Manor. Surrounded by open countryside and farmland, the local area is rural and peaceful yet this is a great base from which to explore the county and coastline.The nearest village is Praze an Beeble where there is a post office and shop, pub and fish and chip restaurant. Hayle, St Ives, Helston and Penzance are all within easy driving distance too offering a wide range of cafes and restaurants, shops and the obligatory supermarkets. For beach lovers, St Ives Bay on the north coast is just 10 minutes’ drive – head to Gwithian or Godrevy for 3 miles of sand, swimming, surfing and sunning. Porth Kidney is also beautiful and never over-crowded. We recommend parking at Hayle or St Erth and taking the branch line along the coast to St Ives for the day too – it’s simply stunning.
