The Owner Says
Jacob's Hut is a Shepherd's Hut on the Devon/Cornwall border which comfortably sleeps 2 people. An ideal place to escape with breakfast available if required for an easier start to your day. From the stable door you look out to the pond and to Thrushelton Church on the opposite hill. It's even lovelier outside where you can have a picnic by the pond or relax in the summerhouse which gets the evening sun. There is a firepit in front of the summerhouse for rustling up a meal in the dutch oven or simply for toasting marshmallows. (Toasting fork supplied!) For cooler evenings you have a woodburner in the hut and lighting is by LED storm lanterns.
We provide you with pots, pans, plates, cutlery, utensils, mugs, glasses, can opener & bottle opener. We also provide you with store cupboard goods that are essential to pull a good meal together, along with freshly grown herbs which are readily accessible near our cottage for you to help yourselves to.
