What a view!

Today the shepherd's hut was escorted into place
by the trusty old tractor.

Carefully positioned to take full advantage of the view from the hut's door (at the right hand end in the above pic), and the front window (on the opposite side of the hut from where the above pic is taken). The other window (on left above) looks through the leaves at the top of the hedge and up over the rolling fields to the East.

Above and Below - the view from your hut's door

Picture perfect

A huge thank you to Jo's aunt Jenny who has come up trumps again with yet another fantastic drawing. You may have noticed the lovely banner drawing on our new site

Jenny's drawing captures the spirit of Hideaway Huts with its depiction of the Cornish landscape, the shepherd's hut itself, a cheeky wild rabbit and (equally cheeky) our little dog Bee.

We love it and hope you will too.
