Exposing The Hideaway Hut In Cornwall

The Hideaway Hut is a wonderful, natural way to explore a gorgeous area of Cornwall in the UK. Treworgey Farm – a huge expanse of wonderful scenery just a few miles from the coast at Looe – is populated by a variety of animals and now home to Holly and Andy, who have taken over the family business from Holly’s sister Jo. Spread over 150 acres, it’s a picturesque place, with a riding school on site, a few quaint cottages, and a very popular shepherd’s hut for two!

Hideaway HutThe understated hut sits in its own corner of the farm, complete with a private shower and a composting commode about 65 feet away. From this spot one can either embark on the coastal path or ramble down in the woodlands. For the less stationary though there is access to a games room on site, a pool, and a tennis court, which renters share with the cottages.

The interior of the hut is dressed in cottage chic colors consisting of an antique whitewash over vertical tongue & groove paneling while the double bed is a country blue hue. The appointments are light and airy and are reminiscent of an early 20th century farmhouse. The one generous window over the sideboard table opens outward to let in a fresh, afternoon air. There is also a sliding window above the bed to cool off those open sky evenings. In the corner, there’s a wood-burner in the hut to keep occupants warm and a gas stovetop for cooking along with all the basics.

For the more adventurous though the local pub and grill is only about a 40-minute hike where the sparkling cider is legendary. During the day, the beach is only a few minutes by car and the many attractions of Cornwall await.

Hideaway Hut 6Not to be outdone by more modern facilities in the area there is a 1-amp inverter in the hut, which can charge phones or laptops. There is also an “info room”, shared with the holiday cottages, where renters can access the Internet.

Shepherds Hut 2

Bodger’s Sheppards Hut

I have been in love recently with the old time Sheppard’s huts.  They have a quaintness to them, a practicality and many of them incorporate beautiful wood work into them.  I found the Bodger’s Hut recently and really like the rustic but cozy feel to it.  This hut is part of a camp with other huts, yurts and tents in Dorset in the UK.

Set in a magical woodland setting our hand crafted shepherds hut offers peace, tranquility and privacy as well as a level of comfort not normally associated with camping. Bodger is set in an elevated position looking down over the fishing pond and has a private deck and boardwalk, bodger is one of the four glamping units at Crafty Camping that have their own private ensuite facilities.

Haiti Hut

This is a modular house that is constructed of smaller 8’x8′ sections and when you put 4 of them together you have a fully functional home.

The enclosed area is divided by a bathroom/kitchen core into a sleeping quarter and a living/dining area. A porch is also included in one of the modules. The “L” shape of this sustainable house provide a garden area for the house. The shape also allows the housing unit to be repeated in a small community.
