The Shepherd Hut at Bluebell Down Farm Morvah

£305 - £569 per week
Book
 

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.

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.

November 2020

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!

Tom Bawcock's Eve, Mousehole

The tradition of Tom Bawcock comes from the feast or famine lifestyle of Cornwall.  The story goes that it was just before Christmas; there had been no fish for weeks, the boats couldn’t get out into the raging storm, the village was starving. One man, Tom Bawcock, dared to take his boat out of the harbour’s safety. He returned with enough fish to make fish pie for the whole village. 

Today, a festival takes place each year to celebrate Tom Bawcock's bravery. During the festival, Star Gazey pies are eaten in memory of this famous event.

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!

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

Sep 2020

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. :)
