The property

… 100 yards down a farm track a mile from Lydford, in a private rural spot beside the owners’ house, a cute little ‘shepherdess hut’ within its own enclosed garden (table/benches) with long views over fields towards Cornwall. A footpath leads in a mile to the village (pub, bring a torch) and there is access to the sparkling river where the hardy can swim. 

Inside, simply but comfortably furnished with 2 steps up to hall area and space for coats. Large, light open-plan living space: two comfy vintage leather chairs in which to snuggle beside the woodburner (no TV); at one end, the sleeping area with 5' bed; dining table/chairs; kitchen area (fridge2-ring electric hob/mini oven). Shower-room (suite). Spring water. No children except pre-crawling babies. All is carefully considered for your comfort and relaxation, but please don’t expect our full inventory at this unique and special place, an uncomplicated country retreat on the edge of the beautiful moor.

This is a beautiful and secluded hut which provided us with much needed peace during our break. We enjoyed the local places of interest. Everything was there that we needed and the owners are lovely and so accommodating. I highly recommend this place
