Ms Bailey April 2022
We had a wonderful stay at the Shepher's Hut. The Hut and garden are just beautiful, with a real feeling of seclusion from the hustle and bustle of the nearby towns, as well as it's own tropical paradise for sitting out in and high hedges to give it privacy from the main house. It's so well equipped, everything has been thought of, including walking guides, attractions, pub recommendations, and other reading and dvd entertainment, bbq, etc. The online photos are so spectacular that I was imagining the furniture, especially in the garden might not be looking at it's best anymore, but the photos actually don't do it justice as to how pretty and spotless the place is and how well-kept the garden is too. The owners, Kay and partner were incredibly friendly and helpful when we needed them, and the welcome gifts of bubbles, scones, biscuits and homemade bread were just delightfully thoughtful and really made our stay. The setting is just gorgeous and we were greeted in the morning by ponies overlooking us from the paddock and often a very friendly little cat too. Good to have recycling on site as sometimes it's not provided and we end up carting it all home to avoid putting it in the general waste. And Kay and partner even kindly let us charge our EV by three-pin plug (and extension lead which we always have with us) at the hut, which was just so helpful as it can really disrupt your holiday if you're having to plan trips around stops to charge the car all the time - especially in Cornwall - although all the lane driving does significantly help conserve the miles if you're staying fairly local. So a definite bonus and we would definitely not mind paying extra for this, especially if we were staying longer and needing a number of charges given rising electric bills (still cheaper than charging out and about, and no time-cost so a win-win). All in all, we thoroughly enjoyed it and can't wait to return for a slightly longer stay at some point so we can fully switch off and see more of the beautiful area too.
Mrs Steward September 2021
Superb, immaculate, welcoming, homely and the best place we've ever stayed.
Mr Wilson August 2021
The shepherds hut and garden was stunning with lovely views.
Ms Goss June 2021
The perfect get away for couples of all ages!
Our stay was simply perfect. My in-laws booked The Shepherd's Hut for our honeymoon. I can honestly say it's the best place I have ever stayed and we had the perfect week.
We were met by Kay who is so friendly, kind and lovely, she really makes you feel at home.
The hut is located in this beautiful valley. There is no signal, weak internet and surrounded by silence. It's great for switching off from the world, spending time with your partner and slowing the pace down. We loved it!
The hut is situated 4 miles in either direction from either Penzance or St Ives (we personally and highly recommend St Ives). This means you are close to shops for food and beautiful days out. Not far from A30 should you wish to explore the rest of Cornwall (we highly recommend the drive to Cornwall at War Museum at Davidstow Airfield). You are a 1m walk from a pub, although we suggest you ask about local footpaths through fields as we took the main road and there are some scary blind corners.
Any issues we had Kay and Graham were on hand to answer and resolved ASAP. They are so friendly, helpful and welcoming.
We cannot thank Kay and Graham enough. We loved our stay at The Shepherd's Hut! Will most definitely be going back!
Mr Stockton June 2021
Absolutely blown away by the attention to detail, homeliness and effort that has been put into making this hut so perfect for its guests! We had the best time and didn’t want to leave. We’re sorry we didn’t get to say goodby Kay, but we honestly can’t fault our weekend at all. The garden was just stunning, the hut was spotless with everything you could possibly need. It has been so well thought out. We can’t wait to come back and visit you, dermot, minky, tia and mackrel. Thank you for making our weekend special! Xx
Mrs Hetherington June 2021
We loved the shepherds hut. It was immaculately clean with the best of everything both indoors and out in the secluded garden. Such a restful holiday in a tranquil little haven .
Ms Dyer May 2021
What an individual, friendly and comfortable time we have had, staying at The Shepherd’s Hut, Georgia Bridge. A beautifully thought out and generous holiday accommodation, in the most charming of Tinner’s Valleys. Kay and Graham were so welcoming and only today, we spoke about it again with Family. Nothing was too difficult to provide and the added bonus of the Horses and Shetland Pony to feed carrots to each evening, was fab. We want to return!
Miss Hayward May 2021
The Shepherd’s Hut at Georgia Bridge is a little slice of heaven - a truly magical place! Kay and Graham have thought of absolutely everything and poured so much love into creating a luxury retreat in the perfect location. There is so much to do with both coasts within a stone’s throw and lots of tips and recommendations in the info folder and guide books provided. That’s if you can tear yourself away from the wood burner, the super cosy bed and the flower filled lanes around the hut! 110% recommended.
Mrs Doyle September 2020
Lovely place great location and lovely owners fully recommended. Lovely Garden lovely views especially the horses Cosy shepherd hut and loved the under floor heating and log fire. And I can’t forget the cosy bed. ????
Miss Minn September 2020

Mrs Willcox August 2020
The Shepherd’s Hut was perfect. Everything you needed for a perfect holiday. Clean, comfortable bed, such a peaceful location with the most amazing garden to relax in. Kay gave us a lovely welcome on arrival and left some delicious treats, the cream tea was amazing and very much appreciated. We spent a lovely week here and made some lovely memories relaxing and visiting different places in Cornwall. St Michael’s Mount is an absolute must to visit and only a short drive away. Just sad to leave and come home. Highly recommend
Miss Gawrylenko August 2020
The way we been welcome it was a huge surprise for us, we didn't expect, the wine, bread, cakes it was wonderful and delicious. This place is amazing such a quiet and calm. The work that Kay and Graham put into this place is incredibly amazing, every little detail. We will have good memories.
Thanks for an amazing stay.
Mr Cole July 2020
Such a beautiful little Hut! We got a warm welcome when we arrived with freshly baked scones and a bottle of Cava! Amazing location. Very peaceful and you can see Dermort the horse in the fields behind (we even got to feed him carrots before we left). Very clean and the hut literally had anything you could think of in terms of equipment. Cute little own private garden too with sun loungers to relax in the sun also and a bbq. Would highly recommend and we would definitely come back again!
Ms Goldring July 2020
It exceeded our expectations. The Shepherds Hut had everything you could wish for.
The hosts were unobtrusive and friendly. They left many useful products for us including eggs from their own chickens and a cream tea.
We befriended their new horse Dermot who was just delightful.
We woud highly recommend this property and would most definitley return in the future.
Mr Bitsch September 2019
This is a really beautiful spot, we had a very relaxing stay. The landscape and garden are amazing and the Hut is very cozy. The owner welcomed us warmly and prepared lovely scones with clotted cream and some more goodies. According to our taste, we would have liked the hedge a little lower, to have an anytime fantastic view to the countryside. The cat was adorable!
Mrs Stengel August 2019
The Shepherd's Hut is perfectly equipped. It's amazing how much place there is for everything you need. The Hut is situated in a very quiet surrounding and ideal to explore the whole South-West of Cornwall from Land's End till Lizard Point. We have made many fantastic walks on the South-West-Coast-Path. Charming hosts and a very warm welcome. We can really recommend the nice Shepherd's Hut!
Mrs Norris August 2019
We had the most wonderful stay in the Shepherd’s hut and I honestly couldn’t recommend it enough. Every tiny detail has been thought of from the decor to the bathroom robes and home made scones and bread. The hut is very private and the gardens are just beautiful. We honestly couldn’t fault it at all. The hosts were so welcoming and made sure we felt at home straight away. Thank you for the most wonderful time!
Mr Parker July 2019
Our fourth stay, we relax as soon as we arrive and Kay and Graeme are superb hosts with a wonderfully warm welcome. The Shepherds Hut is always immaculate, with beautiful and thoughtful touches. The only down side is we have to leave! See you next year.
Miss Biljana July 2019
We enjoyed our stay and everything was perfect. I hope we will come again. Kay could‘nt do enything better- she made us feel welcome and we are in love with her place.
Miss Longmore June 2019
Everything was perfect - a great rural retreat close to all the amenities and beaches. The Hut is perfect - super clean, thoughtfully decorated, and in a stunning setting.
Ms Barrow June 2019
An exquisite ‘hut’ in a truly peaceful and private setting. A beautiful dedicated garden/outdoor space for relaxing. Bijou but beautiful. Charming hosts. To be unreservedly recommended. Jill, June 2019.
Mrs Bowman June 2019
A truly luxurious glamping experience. Very clean and well appointed with a surprising amount of storage space, including a mini wardrobe. Very romantic with an imaginatively planted, very private outdoor space. The owners are very pleasant and unobtrusive.
Mr Malone September 2018
Amazing place to stay - the perfect hideaway. Everything you need and very welcoming hosts. Couldn't recommend it highly enough.

Thank you Kay & Graham for a wonderful stay, it has been everything we could have hoped for and more. Thank you for your kind and generous welcome, the cream teas were gorgeous. We will definitely be recommending your lovely shepherds hut to family and friends and we would love to return in the future.
Mr Elson June 2018
The owners were so warm and welcoming and genuinely wanted to ensure our stay was perfect, which it was. The shepherd’s hut is utterly gorgeous and is equipped with everything you could possibly need. The pretty garden that wraps around it ensures privacy as well as being a perfect place to relax.
Frau Frobel May 2018
I have been there twice and will definitely visit the place again!
Miss Green April 2018
Absolutely loved it and would love to return
Would give more stars if I was able to
Ms Russell March 2018
Can’t praise the shepherds hut at Georgia Bridge enough. From the moment we pulled up we knew we’d found a magical spot but that was just the beginning. The owners were so friendly and proud of the hut we couldn’t help but be won over. The place is beautifully designed and nothing has been forgotten from the delicious cream tea and prosecco left out for us to the very welcome underfloor heading and log burner. The bed was sumptuous and we enjoyed snuggling up with the fire blazing watching the snow fall. Location was great too, a few minutes in each direction takes you to great local pubs. Our favourite was The Tinners in Zennor and we loved the fact within a short drive you could be in wild romantic Zennor or buzzy cool St Ives. Will definitely be back!
Miss Bumford December 2017
The Shepherds hut is set in a beautiful, quiet location. The hut is charming, and has everything you need for a comfortable and enjoyable stay. We stopped in December so welcomed the under floor heating and wood burner. Our hosts are a delightful, friendly couple who welcomed us like old friends. A wonderful holiday!
Miss McFarlane September 2017
We got engaged whilst staying at the hut and would like to thank the owners Kay & Graham for our engagement card that was waiting for us we arrived home, very thoughtful

Many congratulations on your engagement! We hope the delightful setting of The Shepherd's Hut at Georgia Bridge added to what was obviously a very memorable stay. Tanya, Customer Support
Mrs Altmannsberger August 2017
We loved the hut from the first moment on - and we had such a warm welcome (and stay!) there, with homemade "creamtea" (-> instead of the tea we had Prosecco :-) ). Kay and Graham were so lovely to us, though we didn´t meet that often - and for us they built a perfect place with this Shepherd´s Hut at Georgia Bridge, in a perfect location. We didn´t miss a thing inside (and outside) and loved even the rainy days, when we 'hadn´t' to go out and could lay on this cosy bed, having this beautiful view out of the bed-window. In the Shepherd´s Hut, we could calm down and nearly enjoyed, that there was no signal (but we could get WLAN, if we wanted to). :-) We had lots of trips in the near and farer surrounding, went to Penzance, St. Ives, Marazion/St. Michaels Mount, Tintagel, Falmouth - and had a long Cost-walk at the Lizard. And we have been to Shakespeare in the Minack-Theater too (although we - as Germans - didn´t understand really much of it, it was a lovely and hot-sunny afternoon). For Dinner we 'found' us "The Engine Inn" (in Cripplesease), where we have been a few times and wich we really liked a lot. ...But whenever we came back to the hut, there was this wonderful silence that we miss here now, back in Germany. ;-/ We really would love to return. Thank you!
Mr Heald July 2017
The shepards hut at Georgia bridge is by far the best place we have ever stayed in our lives, Clean, comfortable and extremely high quality
Kay and Graham are the most amazing owners and really made our honeymoon special. I cannot stress enough how good they are. If you stay here you will not be disappointed.
Miss Lintott July 2017
This was the second time we visited the shepherds hut. Once again it was fantastic. The work Kay and Graham and have and continue to put in really shows. They are fantastic hosts and nothing is too much trouble. The hut has everything you can think of for a well equipped holiday. Beautifull surroundings, ideal location for exploring a special part of the country. Thank you again for such a wonderful stay, you have such a special little retreat that we call our Cornwall home. Xx
Mr Schlund June 2017
We had a wonderful time in the Shepherd's Hut. There's enough space for two people and it is equipped with anything you need. Everything is clean and the attention they paid on the small details is lovely. Kay and Graham are very nice hosts who will help who with any question. The location at Georgia Bridge ist very quiet so you can completely calm down, but also it is very close to both St Ives and Penzance. Just the perfect place to start your Cornwall explorations from.
Mr Venables April 2017
A delightful little shepherds hut in a picturesque setting. Glamping at its best!
Mr Parrott March 2017
Fantastic glamping hut in a great location. We were made to feel more than welcome by the owners who are lovely people. This gives remoteness (not too far out though) and luxury all in one! We will return! Thank you.
Mr Willis February 2017
The Shepherd's hut was absolutely excellent, simply perfect. It provided everything we needed and more. This made it the ideal setting for our weekend away. The hospitality was above and beyond and really made for a top weekend away.
Miss Bumford December 2016
A charming rental property, set in a wonderful, quiet area. Compact, cosy, convenient. The hosts were delightful, helpful and discreet.
Miss Ravenall November 2016
Fantastic Hideaway cant wait to return!!
Mr Parker September 2016
From the moment we drove over the little bridge and saw the beautiful shepherd's hut, and the warmest of welcomes from Kay complete with a cream tea, we knew we were going to love our stay, but we didn't realise just how much! Kay & Graham have created a beautiful haven, which instantly becomes home. From the exquisite interior of the hut to the magical garden oasis, every last detail has been meticulously planned and thought about. Crisp, white bed linen, white robes, wonderful fabrics for the roman blinds, up-to-date magazines, a thoughtful collection of dvd's and books, the essentials in and out of the fridge and the divine contemporary shower room. They even provided Mackerel, their gorgeous cat who popped in to say hello from time to time. Never once did we say 'oh we could do with that' because it was all there. The garden has been planted so expertly, and the work that has gone into it is so evident, complete with lily pad pond, a weber BBQ, gorgeous wicker sun loungers and your own private, gated entrance. A complete gem, peace and tranquility in abundance. We're wishing away the year until we can return. Thank you both so much.
Miss Marchant September 2016
Beautifully presented shepherds hut, with everything you could ever possibly need! Everything had been so carefully thought about and we arrived to scrumptious scones, clotted cream and jam! When the owner Kay found out it was our honeymoon she had gone out and got a lovely Mr and Mrs card and bottle of champagne! Was so kind and we felt so welcome throughout our stay there, just wish it could have been longer! I would highly recommend anyone that is seeking a true bit of countryside paradise, to visit! Close to St Ives and Penzance, it's in a perfect location! Thank you for such a truly memorable few days!
Mrs Edwards August 2016
Absolutely beautiful, serene, peaceful, relaxing and such a retreat. Kay and Graham have really done such a brilliant job and are the perfect hosts. The shepherds hut is very warm and welcoming and so many lovely touches and extras - even a cream tea handmade, on arrival!!! 5 star accommodation and wonderful surroundings. Cosy and in a perfect location. So much to do in the area and lovely places to eat, St Ives and a boat trip to seal island are a must - we even saw dolphins on that trip and lots of seals. We will defo be back, thank you - it was so lovely
Mr McAuliffe July 2016
If you want something special, then this is it. Georgia is simply gorgeous, decorated beautifully and in a lovely location. Couldn't ask for more.
Miss Grundy May 2016
My partner and I were the first people to stay at The Shepherd's Hut and it was such a lovely visit! I just haven't got round to reviewing our stay until now...
The hosts were very hospitable and friendly on arrival. They even left us out a little cream tea and champagne to pop. They said all that they needed to and left us to enjoy the Hut and our stay. Except when I suffered a bit of heat stroke after getting sun burnt (oops), but the host kindly welcomed us both into her house and allowed me to run myself a cool bath to help with the symptoms! Very kind of her to do that...
Even though the Hut is on their land, you feel like you're in your own little piece of tranquil countryside with your own privacy. The Hut itself is absolutely beautiful and the interior is exquisite, with everything you could possibly need. Including this little wood burner to keep you warm. The Hut also has this pair of binoculars which we used to watch some of the wildlife whilst sat in bed - so relaxing and peaceful. You're not far away from the beaches, local attractions and St. Ive's town either, but you will need a car to get to these places as there's lots to enjoy! The Hut is surrounded by beautiful country side so I'm sure there are plenty of beautiful walks to enjoy as well!
We loved our stay and we enjoyed ourselves very much. We would definitely recommend the Hut to anyone who wants a little weekend get-away which has the best of both country and coastal worlds.
