Creating the perfect hideaway

There has been much activity here at Hideaway Huts over the past few months in preparing our second traditional shepherd's Hut.

The Lambing Hut, positioned on the western edge of the farm, half a mile from the original shepherd's hut, is now almost ready, so we thought we'd give you a sneak preview of the inside and the spectacular position.  We're still working on the private bathroom hut, but the Lambing Hut will be ready by the 5th August.   You can check out our availability here.

The Lambing Hut

Since the Shepherd's Hut opened again for spring in March, Andy and I have been making steady progress on a new project: The Lambing Hut.

The Lambing Hut is another shepherd's hut, beautifully built by the one-man-band that built our first hut in a traditional style with corrugated tin to protect the walls and roof and with lovely old iron wheels.  We are in the middle of a great flurry of activity... painting, working wood, curtain making, mattress moving, furniture buying and light fitting, as we gradually get the Lambing Hut ready for it's first glamping guests, expected in August.

After much deliberation whilst stomping around countless fields, we have finally found a spectacular location for the Lambing Hut.  Below is the rather stunning view that will be seen through the Lambing Hut's door:

We are now officially taking bookings for the Lambing Hut from 1st August onward.   We can guarantee the same comfort, luxury and attention to detail that those who've stayed with us before loved about the Shepherd's Hut, from luxury pocket sprung mattress with 100% cotton sheets, to piping hot shower, to teatime treats and fresh flowers awaiting your arrival.  Get in touch if you'd like to stay or you can book online at

Weathering the storms

Our first winter in charge of the Shepherd's Hut has been a wild one, but being on a hill we've escaped the flooding that has caused all sorts of trouble in this part of Cornwall.  The hut has battled the weather fiercely, with not a single leak appearing.  Starting to wonder whether we should have clad our own house in corrugated tin!

Whilst the hut hibernates (we close her down from bonfire night to valentines day to give the ground a rest), we've been working on some little extras - thanks to inspired feedback by some of our 2013 guests - to make our guests even more at home in the hut.  If you've stayed with us before then next time you come look out for what's new!

Also new is Rabbit the puppy - who fortunately so resembles the previous resident dog here (Bee) that we needn't change our Hideaway Huts logo (see our website and you'll understand)! Here she is:

Today we noticed the first snowdrop shoots poking through so it looks like spring will be with us in plenty of time for our first guests of the year who are booked in for a Valentine's day retreat.  We still have availability for other dates in Feb so get in touch if you need to escape to the country for a few days to snuggle up next to the log burner with a book and a cuppa.
