St Michael's Mount, the jewel in Cornwall's crown can be seen from whichever way you look.
There's a king-size double bed, bunk-beds, kitchen area and en suite shower-room too, perfect for families!
This superb shepherd's hut is big enough for a family of four.
Children will love the bunk beds.

Relaxing al fresco, taking in the stunning view is a must.
Not only the amazing view but your very own hot tub too.
What a fabulous place to stay.
Nestled in a spacious meadow alongside Mount View Sunrise Safari Tent and Mount View Horizon Safari Tent. There is one other hideaway on site but in a different meadow separated by a hedge. All hideaways have plenty of privacy.
There is a handy honesty-shop on site, complete with washing machine.
What a view to wake up too!
Definitely worth a visit (just a five minute drive away) are nearby majestic St Michael's Mount and glorious Marazion beach.
The popular village of Mousehole is also close by, with its great restaurants, galleries and pubs.
A short drive away, Perranuthnoe beach is perfect for sandcastle building.
Bustling St Ives is a short drive away, perfect for a day out exploring, with its wonderful beaches, ancient cobbled streets and numerous great eateries.
The hot tub sits behind the fence for privacy and shelter and, just like the hut, looks straight out to sea.

In our opinion, you won’t be disappointed booking this shepherd’s hut!

We spent a lovely relaxing week at the shepherd's hut, enjoying the fantastic view of St Michael's Mount. We have stayed in quite a few huts over the past 3 years and this is by far the biggest, with lots of room and the added bonus of a sofa and bunk beds (which we used for storage). We met the owner (David) on the first night and he advised us that the hot tub is cleaned on every change which is good time know, although this meant it wasn't warm enough on the 1st night. The welcome hamper was a nice surprise, with milk, eggs, crisps, cider and a few other goodies. The safari tents are set back from the hut so privacy is provided. Unfortunately the WiFi wasn't working all week despite mentioning it to the owner, so this needs to be fixed if you need to use this. For some reason, there aren't many reviews made about the hut over the past year so we were a little skeptical, but we would definitely recommend to family and friends and hope to return again in the future when visiting this area....

A wonderful idyllic escape, with breath taking views and so many adventures to have. The best welcome hamper we have ever had with a helpful kind host in David. We would come back in a heart beat. Our son loved the shepherd's hut & park and has so many amazing memories. ...

Thank you for a great stay! Mount view retreat was amazing, we had a lovely week and it was just want we needed. It was in a great spot - just by the beach and in perfect location for so many other places. The hot tub - we loved as we got to watch the sunset and the stars at night The play area for children - the outside space was perfect and the little patio area Was great for having a cream tea and dinner outside. ...
