Private Shepherd’s Huts in the Cornish Countryside

New for summer 2021 are five beautiful shepherd’s huts nestled in the grounds of our traditional British pub, The Cornish Arms in St Merryn.

Designed by Jill, Kate and Ed Stein – an accomplished stonemason and artist – in collaboration with local experts in craft and design, the huts combine craftsmanship with modern comfort. Locally sourced stone is used to form a private decking on which to enjoy the view, hand-curved wooden planks form homely, Scandinavian-style interiors, brightly lit by sunlight through large windows on all sides.

Each cabin is home to a bright living and dining area, an en suite shower bathroom and kitchenette. Completed with boutique fixtures and fittings including gooseneck taps, Nespresso coffee machines, full-sized porcelain sinks and Robert’s ‘Revival’ Radios. The huts boast a double size bed looking out over the pasture beyond, all designed to comfortably accommodate two adults.

Expect a tranquil experience in the Cornish countryside, designed to help you relax, unwind, and spend quality time together. After a restful night’s sleep in the double bed enjoy your morning coffee on the private terrace or a cosy night cap before bed at the breakfast bar space. Each hut has a double bed, open plan kitchenette and breakfast bar leading to an ensuite shower room.

Soft furnishings and in-cabin amenities are by Jill Stein, artfully chosen in keeping with country and seaside setting and inspired by the Cornish coast.

Located just 5 minutes from some of Cornwall’s most beautiful beaches, head down for a morning surf or watch the sunset at Trevone. Or for restaurants, pubs and shops galore, head 10 minutes into Padstow for a day of mooching around the harbour and quaint Cornish streets.

Our nearby pub, The Cornish Arms offers a classic British pub menu with a handful of dishes from Rick’s TV travels around Asia, like his famous Pondicherry cod curry. Plus, a very spacious beer garden for a drink or two as the sun goes down.
