Private Shepherd’s Huts in the Cornish Countryside

New for 2021 are five beautiful shepherd’s huts located by sheltered woodlands on the grassy grounds of our pub, The Cornish Arms. The wooden huts offer peaceful countryside accommodation within reach of Cornwall’s burgeoning food scene, beaches and coast walks.

Designed by Jill, Kate & Ed Stein

Ed Stein – an accomplished stonemason and artist – worked in collaboration with local experts in craft and design, to ensure the huts combine craftsmanship with modern comfort. Locally sourced stone is used to form a private decking on which to enjoy the fresh air, 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 room and kitchenette. Completed with boutique fixtures and fittings including gooseneck taps, Nespresso coffee machines and Robert’s ‘Revival’ Radios. The huts boast a cosy double size bed with beautifully crisp linen, all designed to comfortably accommodate two adults.

On arrival

Make your way to your secluded shepherd’s hut or check in with our team at the Cornish Arms if you have any questions. Once you’re settled in you won’t be disturbed during your stay, so expect a tranquil escape in the Cornish countryside, designed to help you relax, unwind, and spend quality time together.

After a restful night’s sleep in the comfy double bed enjoy your morning coffee on the private terrace. Your breakfast will be served at The Cornish Arms – opt for a full English or something a little lighter, all made using the finest local produce from nearby farmers, bakers and producers. Dinner is also available at the pub – simple, British fare with Rick Stein flair.


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

Good to know

Our shepherd’s huts are certainly for the more adventurous among us; if you prefer to travel with a lot of luggage, require more leg room than most or you’re looking for an even more luxurious experience, we suggest booking a room in one of our Padstow hotels or self-catering accommodation.
