The Shepherd Hut at Bluebell Down Farm

£336 - £623 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.

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. :)
