The Shepherd Hut at Bluebell Down Farm

£368 - £681 per week

The Shepherd Hut at Bluebell Down Farm is an harmonious, snug retreat, away from the rest of the world with quirky features. The perfect hideaway for up to two people to relax, rest and sleep with a comfortable double bed which has a pull out table underneath to enjoy a lazy dinner and a bottle of bubbles. This delightful shepherd's hut looks out over the fields and working farm, with natural pastures of plants such as wild carrot, bluebells and chicory and beyond down to the sea. As well as interesting places to visit locally, there is plenty of scope for walking and cycling or alternatively, just sit on the steps of the hut and take in the views, the birds and the wildlife around. On a clear night, stargazing is a must.

The attractive hamlet of Morvah is supported by the close by, larger village of Pendeen, and the mining town of St Just with its historic interest is 4 miles to the west. Popular attractions in the area are Cape Cornwall, Lands End, Geevor Tin Mine, The Minack Theatre, the fishing harbours of St Ives and Mousehole, St Michael's Mount and so forth. In addition, there are renowned scenic walks and sandy beaches around the peninsula. So pack your rucksack with beach towels and sun cream for a day of chilling on the sand and cooling in the sea, or for the more adventurous explore the fascinating coast path around west Cornwall. The Shepherd Hut is positioned close to Bluebell Down Farm, so a great way to bring more of the family is by booking both properties.

Holidays in Morvah

The small hamlet of Morvah is located on the north coast of west Cornwall, and is very typically Poldark countryside. Situated between St Ives and Lands End, this stretch of coast road is considered as one of the top ten most beautiful drives in Europe. Stunning scenery and breathtaking views await you in this quiet corner of west Cornwall. 

Morvah is ideal walking country, with open fields stretching down to mighty granite cliffs overlooking the Atlantic Ocean. So if you’re seeking some much-needed time in the great outdoors, with footpaths beneath your feet and sea air rushing past you, Morvah could be the perfect destination for you.

Top tip

Cycle the coast road into St Ives.

Things to do

Located in the far west of Cornwall, there’s plenty to see and do nearby.

Levant Mine and Beam Engine

Visit this National Trust attraction to see the historic steam-powered beam engine in action. Explore the underground tunnel and discover more on the family trail at one of Cornwall's most famous mines.

Geevor Tin Mine

Another popular attraction near Morvah is Geevor Tin Mine, an old mine which has been preserved and now serves as an attraction to display Cornwall's rich industrial past. With breathtaking views along the coast, and with plenty to explore, it provides a great day out for everyone.

Land’s End

When staying in west Cornwall, visiting the landmark Land’s End is must! Spend the day at the most westerly point in mainland Britain; enjoy the attractions, say hello to the farm animals, get a photo with the signpost, and take in those spectacular views!

Walks in and around Morvah

This area of Cornwall is perfect for walking; with wooded valleys, quaint villages, rolling fields, Cornish coves and coastal paths all waiting to be explored. 

Nearby walks

Head through fields, farms and lanes towards the coast and you’ll discover Pendeen Lighthouse. Enjoy the advantageous views before heading back to the quintessential village of Morvah. 

The South West Coast Path

One of the best things about west Cornwall is the wild and rugged coastline, and walking the South West Coast Path is one of the best ways to explore it. Join the footpath at Pendeen and head in one direction to Land’s End, or the other towards St Ives

West Cornwall is home to lots of hidden coves, which once upon a time would have been used for smuggling. However, some of the bigger beaches are far more easily accessible and family-friendly.

Portherras Cove Beach

Only accessible by foot, this sandy cove, located at the end of a small valley, is off the beaten track; be prepared for a walk down and a bit of a climb back up. 

Porthcurno Beach

This stunning beach boasts soft golden sand and turquoise waters, and with lifeguard cover from mid-May through to the end of September, it’s a popular choice for families. Sheltered by cliffs on either side, and with stunning views, it’s truly a little piece of paradise.  

Sennen Cove Beach

A large expanse of golden sand, this is the perfect place to visit for a day at the beach. Whether you plan to spend your time surfing, swimming, rock-pooling or simply relaxing on the sand, there’s plenty of space for everyone. 

St Ives’ Beaches

Of course, you could head into St Ives for the day and visit one of the beautiful beaches there. From the expansive Porthmeor, great for surfing, to the smaller and more sheltered Porthgwidden beach. Whichever beach you choose here, there’s always plenty of facilities nearby.

We had a really enjoyable stay at Bluebell Down Farm in the shepherds hut which was very cosy and comfortable. It was wonderful to light the wood burner and enjoy the amazing view across the fields towards the sea. On arrival we enjoyed a cream scone and a pot of tea which was very welcoming. We would definitely like to stay again. Thank you Gina & Terence from Somerset.

Lovely snug getaway.

it's a cosy place with nice view to the sea and the country, very well provided for all necessary equipement to stay one week in this small hut. we had nice and warm evenings with the little wood burner ? it's such a lovely place that we were bluesy when we left!

The way to find the sheperd hut was explained perfectly and precisely by aspects-holidays

we reached many locations of south cornwall very easily and quickly

We thought that this was a unique and dreamy property .The location and views were second to none if you want to experience the wild beauty of West Penwith . It was peaceful and an amazing place to look at the sky and ocean as the light changed . We sat by the open door on our little armchairs with a cosy fire in wood burner The outside space was also really great and it looks as very useful to be able to wash and dry clothes . The hut itself was so well considered and beautifully decorated .. so tasteful and comfortable , It was really like perfect camping in comfort. We will definitely return it’s a rather special place.

Nice cosy hut in a great location for walkers but driveway would be problematic for some cars

Thanks for your review. Being in such a fantastic rural location, roads can be a little narrow and the access track is narrow and unmade, so will be very uneven. We try to make this as clear as we can on the description as we appreciate that this may not suit every vehicle, and some may not be very confident on these narrow roads if they are not used to them. We hope that it was ok for you and that you had a great time here. Tanya, Customer Services

Lovely 2 weeks at the Shepherds hut beautiful countryside and wildlife. We came to walk some of the coast path which we did. Bought a weekly bus pass which was good value for money, ditched the car and progressed around the coast walking a different section every day, which was very enjoyable. The shepherds hut is tiny, don't think I quite appreciated how tiny when I booked, but adequate for our needs as we spent most of the time outside. The grumble I had was lack of reliable Internet, however the holiday company and the housekeeper were very helpful when trying to sort it out.

You certainly picked a great area for exploring the coastline…. The walks around there are stunning! We are glad that you enjoyed it. We have tried to show the available space as best as possible in the photos, so are sorry if this was not quite what you had expected. Sadly, there have been a few reports of issues with the wifi there, and it seems that it is not just limited to this property, but speaking to others in nearby properties, it is just the nature of being in such a rural location. The wifi can be very sporadic. As a result, we have highlighted this information on the website, so whilst wifi is provided, it cannot be guaranteed at all times. We are sorry for the inconvenience at the time. Tanya, Customer Services

A wonderfully located & provisioned shepherd's hut - It was peaceful. I loved watching the landscape change throughout the day; and enjoyed all the sounds & sights of nature while I was there including young rabbits grazing in the garden. There are some fabulous walks all around & I indulged my love of macro photography. It was a blissful fortnight.

Beautiful hut, lovely location, would definitely use this hut again.

That was real pleasure to stay at this gorgeous farm in so cute caravan. Very comfortable bed, great shower, setting up space for all staff included amazing. Decorating so cute ?? Garden fabulous x Highly recommend to visit and enjoy beautiful area ??

Cosy cabin with some great walks. Straight out onto the moors to the south or walk a couple of miles the other way to the beach at the wonderful Portheras Cove. A great place to unwind.

We love the tranquility of the environment and the serenity and peace we felt. All I recall hearing was the moo of a cow and the warbling of a warbler at night. The view was mesmerising and the accommodation so comfortable and unique. We will likely return and recommend this place to others.

We loved our time at the Shepherds hut a really beautiful peaceful retreat. The hut was really cosy and lovely and comfortable. We definitely intend to return and would highly recommend to anyone, thank you to Aspects holidays your service was brilliant.

Stunning views in an amazing location. Spend a lovely week here. Watching the sunset over the Atlantic Lovely peaceful location Ideal for couple. Lovely local walks. Remember your binoculars. Good base to explore West Cornwall.

I find the clever design of the Shepherd Hut delightful. I love that I can see the sea from the raised bed. I also love how the Shepherd Hut is secluded but not isolated, allowing me privacy whilst feeling safe. I know and enjoy several wonderful walks from the Shepherd Hut, including to Portheras Cove, and it is restful not to have to drive to have a lovely day out. I also enjoy simply sitting in the garden, watching the birds and the ever-changing view of sky and sea.

We had an amazing time staying in the shepherds hut. It is such a tranquil location with the most amazing views and pubs in walking distance. We loved it so much that we booked to go back before we left. A very special place.

It was cosy, comfortable, quiet with fantastic views and sunsets but also well protected from the windy weather we had during my visit. A perfect retreat and base to explore the West coast of Cornwall. I had a wonderful relaxed stay and would happily return.

Lovely location, far reaching views and very peaceful. We were there in November just prior to second lockdown but would love to go back in Spring or Summer.

Always wanted to stay in a shepherd’s hut and reckon this is one of the best I could have chosen. The location is amazing with views down to the sea and easy access to the Penwith Hills. Hut itself is very cleverly designed, well furnished and equipped. Enjoyed the isolation and safe feeling during Covid epidemic. Great access to coastal path and inland walks direct from the hut. The dog and I loved it!

The Shepherd’s Hut was perfect in every way. Everything we needed to self cater was provided and all amenities were spot on. The wood burner was a lovely addition on cold evenings and made the hut really cosy. The view from the hut was stunning and its location, although close enough to Pendeen and Penzance, felt like we were in the middle of nowhere. Just perfect!

Amazing place, so peaceful & relaxing with amazing views

Excellent peaceful cosy retreat with amazing views. Be prepared to full in love with West Penwith from this romantic shepherds hut.

We loved everything about the Shepherd Hut at Bluebell Down Farm. It is a beautiful setting surrounded by green fields with glorious sea views, but also has essentials like a decent shower and wifi. It definitely isn’t camping!

We didn’t take the car out all week. The coast path and Pendeen are both within easy walking distance. For further afield bought a weekly pass and used the bus that runs between St Ives and Lands End. Definitely a place for people who enjoy the outdoors.

We only booked the day before we went. Thank you for your assistance, everything went smoothly. Thanks also for the cream tea on arrival, most welcome. :)
