Treworgey Farm, Duloe, Liskeard, Cornwall PL14 4PP
Many sites claim to offer a picture perfect hideaway but few can compete with the idyllic shepherd’s hut nestled on the hillside of Treworgey Farm. With a truly spectacular location and 150 acres all to yourself, Hideaway Huts is a campsite offering perfect seclusion for anyone lucky enough to bag a prized night in their calendar.
From the cliff-hung coastline of south-west Cornwall, meander up the Looe Valley to a remote farmstead and through the meadow gate to your quaint new four-wheeled home. Overlooking a lush rolling landscape, sculpted by the weaving river beyond, this shepherd’s hut is a glamping haven and a masterpiece of home design. Inside, the light finish and rectangular windows make it feel open and airy, while the log-burning stove and wooden furnishings create a snug, warm atmosphere and a sumptuous sanctuary on those unfortunate days when rain drums upon the roof.
Everything you could need is waiting within. Pots, pans, logs, dried foodstuffs, recipes, games, books, maps, toiletries… the list goes on. There’s also a handy folder compiled by Holly and Andy with recommendations on what to do nearby, though its unlikely you’ll be in a rush to leave. On a nice day, fold out the deck chairs and read in the sun, jump in the heated swimming pool, or put on your game face for a quick rally on the tennis court.
While the miles of surrounding meadows are free for guests to wander, the more adventurous should saddle up at Treworgey Farm’s licensed riding school, which welcomes all levels of ability and promises a great way to explore the area. Back down the slopes towards the shoreline, the harbour town of Looe is an absorbing place to visit, its quays stacked with crates and lobster baskets. There are several fantastic beaches here, as well as boat trips to one of Cornwall's most diverse island bird sanctuaries. The dramatic heritage coast stretches east to the staggeringly beautiful Fowey estuary, while a short drive north takes you to Bodmin Moor, a miniature wilderness often overshadowed by the larger National Parks.
Despite the array of options on your doorstep, don’t plan your holiday with too much haste. The pace of life at Hideaway Huts will remind you that life isn’t about chasing a to-do list of predetermined activities. Instead, cherish the exclusivity of a glampsite that's yours alone, meeting with the animals of Treworgey Farm and enjoying the spectacular views. If you don’t manage to make it beyond the nearest village then hey, you’ll just have to go back next year!
The Owner Says
Doggie & human heaven
It's rare that a holiday turns out to be exactly what the host promises on their site, even rarer that it turns out to be better. Hideaway huts' Shepherds hut is exactly that, better than expected after high expectations. The setting is perfect- views to the coast on a working farm with enough privacy to really relax but with someone always there if you need help. The farm has plenty to offer whatever the weather with a games room, pool and super friendly animals including the two horses who shared our field and entertained our dog. The hut is beautifully kitted out - bed was comfy, log burner very toasty all night, games and books if you need entertaining when the sun goes down and you stop staring at the view. Easy to walk into Looe with decent walking shoes and the train or bus will drop you back nearby if the local beers and ciders take out your walking legs. Great hot shower for post walk recovery (after gentle swim in the pool). Would recommend reading all the comments left by previous guests in the book in the hut for ideas for meals out, trips out etc. When we go back to Cornwall we will definitely stay here again.
