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!
The 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.
Not 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.
