A chance to escape from the crowds, we only have the 1 hut so it's just sometimes some ponies across the field.

If you like something a bit different, a bit rural and a bit rustic, but enjoy your creature comforts, underfloor heating, lighting, electric plugs, kitchen, and ensuite shower room; if you want to wake up to a beautiful view and enjoy peace and quiet and privacy in the countryside, but remain within walking distance of both Stratton and Bude & if you want to enjoy a hot tub soak in the outdoors then our shepherd's cabin is for you! Perfect for romantic breaks, special occasions and family holidays.

Our new shepherds cabin for 2016 boasts underfloor heating controlled with wall thermostats to give this cosy cabin a unique feeling of warmth. For really chilly days, or just the enjoyment of the glow, a log burner sets the scene for a romantic break in the Cornish countryside. Rolling green fields outside the door, rural, romantic, rustic but with enough modern comforts to make your stay perfect. A 34 jet spa hot tub to relax in whilst enjoying the rural views makes this place really special! Nespresso coffee machine, woodburner, underfloor heating, Weber BBQ, chimnea, oven with hob, power shower and parking. Strictly no more than 2 adults. Children x 2 on top bunks, possibly room for travel cot or use of sofabed if preferred over bunks, please get in touch for more information. Outdoor shower is perfect for our your muddy boots!

Weber BBQ, wifi, log burner, Nespresso coffee machine, chinmea, parking, towels and linen provided, bath robes provided for guest use, breakfast in the form of teabags, nespresso coffee pods and eggs from our chickens (total 4 per morning), spa hot tub.

The rural tranquility is what we love about this place, but only a 15 minute walk away from the local pubs and village shop of Stratton through the public footpaths. The town of Bude is a manageable 40 minute walk for those more enthusiastic walkers. And 10 minutes on the A hack on your horse down to the beach, on a mixture of bridleways and roads takes 40 minutes. Bring your wellies, they're essential. The cabin has an entrance porch to keep your wet weather gear outside but covered. Outdoor shower for any visiting surfers!

We are a 15 minute walk to Stratton village and the bus stop there. You can get around in the car, bicycle or on foot. Numerous public footpaths and bridleways to explore all around us including those leading to the beaches and coastal path.

About Liz

Located 2 miles from the centre of Bude, our farm is surrounded by over 300 acres of neighbouring grazing sheep.

The shepherds hut, together with its wood fired hot tub, is set in a secluded space overlooking our meadow from which we make hay when the sun shines! The fields surrounding our meadow home the neighbouring grazing sheep and form part of your Cornish countryside view. You can even enjoy a view down to the Atlantic Ocean from the lucky seat in the hot tub! But the view from the other seat isn't too shabby, it's filled with Cornish countryside. Super sunsets are a treat to see wherever you're sitting.

​Elsewhere on the farm we have a menagerie of animals including our ex-battery chickens who, whilst enjoying their life of freedom, will provide you with your breakfast eggs during your stay.

Our family connection to this farm started when a small boy was sent down to Cornwall to escape the bombing of London during World War 2. After spending a few years at boarding school down here, a bond was formed and he returned after retiring from work in London. That boy is now 80 years old and shares this farm with his daughter, her husband and their two daughters, your hosts nearby, if you need them.

Liz purchased this cabin in 2016

Why Liz chose Bude

Our shepherd's hut is made in the West Country from steel and hard wood. It features double-glazing, underfloor heating, mains power and water, dimmable LED lights throughout and much more. The setting may be rural, but your comfort will not be compromised here.

The hut is a spacious 24ft by 9ft, with double doors opening onto the beautiful Cornish countryside. Everything has been finished to the highest standard with beautiful vintage styling. The hut includes all the features you would expect in a self catering cottage, including a wood burner and wood fired hot tub, more often than not, a stunning Cornish sunset.

What makes this cabin unique

The year round use of this shepherds hut really appealed to us, with the underfloor heating being a unique feature. You may have seen it at the Royal Cornwall Show last was THE show cabin! The separated bunks were also an added attraction and a fantastic idea from the more arguments over who's sleeping on the top! And a great use of space. The king size bed on the bottom surprisingly doesn't feel cramped and our child free couples have enjoyed the comfort and the extra storage space the bunks above provide.

Luxury Shepherd's Hut, away from the crowds. Fun getaway!

  • 4 of 5

We spent 2 nights in this lovely hut. Very comfortable and warm and spotless. The layout of the hut is very clever. The hot tub was ready for us on arrival and fun. We had a BBQ the second night. The nespresso and complimentary soaps and lotions were a lovely touch. Liz was very attentive to our needs.

Thank you.
