Escape the stresses of everyday life in the comfort of this beautiful, cleverly crafted shepherd's hut. Gertie promises nothing less than a romantic retreat and precious time with your loved one, sharing a unique and special experience, with time to stop and just simply be. The invigorating rainfall shower is a perfect way to start the day. Prepare your breakfast and sip coffee on the deck, with a view across the fields and the cows grazing nearby, as the birds sing to welcome in the day. After a busy day exploring, Gertie invites you to enjoy outdoor living; light up the barbecue and prepare your rustic supper in the spacious outside area, with a glass of chilled wine in hand. Cuddle up together sharing your happiest moments, in front of the warmth of the chimenea and gaze into the clear night sky. When it's time to retire for the night, the woodburner effect fire will ensure you are cosy and warm before snuggling up together for a peaceful night's rest.

Gertie is located on the outskirts of St Buryan and is a ten-minute drive from the golden sands of Sennen Cove and Gwenver Beach, which are a surfer's dream. With plenty of outside space at Gertie to store your surfboards or bikes, it's ideal for an adventure break. With so many coastal and rural footpaths to follow, keen walkers will be spoilt for choice for the next ramble. The picturesque coves at Lamorna and Penberth are also a short drive away and a trip to Porthcurno is a must. For sun worshippers, hours spent lying on Pedn Vounder Beach on the white sand, with the turquoise sea lapping the shore, you could be forgiven to think you had arrived in a tropical paradise. The open-air Minack Theatre's location is staggeringly beautiful; take a blanket and a picnic supper and watch a production with the sea as a backdrop and a sunset you'll never forget. The charming village of Mousehole and the fishing port of Newlyn provide some of the finest eateries and are also just a short drive away. Gertie is a perfect choice for a complete rest and well-earned break, within this beautiful part of the county and you will make lifelong memories to share with your friends and family when you return home.

Holidays in St Buryan

For those looking to explore the west of Cornwall, the pretty village of St Buryan has plenty of foothpaths, and is close to Sennen, Porthcurno, and the fishing ports of Mousehole, Penzance and Newlyn. St Buryan is a truly peaceful place, set amongst farmland and home to a traditional Cornish community.

The centre of the village is dominated by the Grade I listed church,  which features the heaviest peal of six bells anywhere in the world! The church has the tallest tower in the area and if you’re lucky enough to be there on Tower Open Day and the weather is fine, you can see for miles. 

While self catering in St Buryan, be sure to take a visit to the St Buryan Inn; a traditional county pub, serving up good pub food in a relaxed atmosphere, with a selection of Cornish ales on offer. There's also a corner shop for all your essentials whilst staying in a holiday cottage in St Buryan. 

The parish is scattered with neolithic activity, such as the Merry Maiden stone circle, The Pipers standing stones, many burial chambers and ancient holy wells. Read more on the history of the area on our blog: West Penwith - Through the ages

Top tip

Be sure to pack your walking boots as St Buryan has fantastic footpaths.

Things to do in St Buryan

St Buryan is well situated to take advantage of the popular tourist attractions such as the Minack Theatre and St Michael's Mount.
