Hideaway Huts and The Watch House

Two cosy farm shepherd’s huts and a blissfully remote, off-grid clifftop cottage, pet-friendly and perfectly positioned for a relaxing break in picture-perfect Cornwall.
  • Sleeps: 2 (+2) or 5
  • Bedrooms: Open plan
  • Bathrooms: 1 per unit
  • Minimum stay: 2-3 nights

Comprising 150 acres of idyllic green and flower-filled space, Treworgey Farm is a haven for fun and relaxation in the Cornish countryside, with the most beautiful views both to the Looe River Valley and the shimmering sea.

There are just two shepherd’s huts to choose from here: The Shepherd’s Hut and The Lambing Hut. Each cosy haven is privately positioned at opposite ends of the farm, for total seclusion amongst this superlative scenery – and you’ll even have your very own luxury bathroom hut, mere steps away.

Better still, while both huts are perfect for a romantic break, you needn’t worry if you can’t find a pet-sitter or childminder. There’s ample space next to your chosen hut to pitch a tent for the kids, while not only your dog, but your cat, tortoise, rabbit or pony are welcome to enjoy a well-deserved farm break, too!

Simply light your wood-burning stove (or relax in your private wood-fired hot tub if staying in The Shepherd’s Hut) for evenings rich in both comfort and beauty. There’s a full-size double bed waiting for when it’s finally time to turn in, a kitchenette for drinks and snacks, and plenty of wide open space to explore, whether on two legs or four.

If you’re still stuck for ways to spend your time, there’s a licensed riding-school on the farm, along with a spa pool, tennis, and dedicated children’s play areas… not to mention picnic spots galore!

Looking for something a little more remote? The Watch House couldn’t be more ideal; an ultra-romantic and completely off-grid clifftop cottage that dates back to the 19th century.

Once a coastguard’s lookout station, the charming stone-and-slate cottage is built directly into the cliff, and is the only building to be found in the sublime, seven-mile stretch of cliffs between Polruan and Polperro. So not only will the sea views be truly spectacular, but they won’t be interrupted by traffic or tourists!

More information

Sleeping up to five guests in total – plus a well-behaved dog – three comfy bunks are cleverly carved into the walls, and there’s also a double sofa bed to curl up in (note: you will need to bring your own bedding, as well as food and supplies).

Once you’ve settled in, you’re free to clamber down to the secret, sheltered cove below, take an invigorating al fresco shower, or watch storms roll in and out from the enormous bay window, log-burner crackling as you cradle a hot drink… utter bliss.

By evening, torches and candles cast a soft, romantic glow over the rustic interiors, and you’ll be cooking and dining with pots, pans, and crockery that have formed part of Watch House’s history for decades, in a stay filled with welcome, home-like warmth.

Whichever retreat you choose for your peaceful, impossibly scenic Cornish break, it’s sure to revive your senses and inspire the most wonderful memories.

Things to note

The Watch House is completely off-grid and is a 20-minute walk from the car park – you will need to carry your luggage, bedding and supplies down to the cottage as well as do practical tasks like lighting the stove and wood-burner. There is no Wi-Fi and limited mobile signal, though there is good mobile reception at the headland, a 10-minute walk away.

Please note there is an additional charge if pitching a tent at the two Hideaway Huts, and for bringing your pet/s.
