We had the most amazing time at Mount view retreat this May. Everything was as you see it in the photos, perfect! The owners are really approachable and made us feel very welcome on our arrival. There are so many great hiking routes from your front door which was great. We completed the St Michael’s Way during our stay which passes just below the hut. The hot tub was a great way to unwind with a beer after a day exploring the coastal paths.
It was such a beautiful place to stop we didn’t want to leave! We will definitely be going back in the future!

We loved the Shepherd Hut at Mount View! We were made to feel welcome straight away and during the whole of our stay. It had the perfect view which was made even more special with the hot tub. We would highly recommend visiting Mount Review Retreat - even in the winter!

My partner and I had an amazing time at Mount View Retreat. It was a surprise booking for his 30th birthday and we both loved staying here.
For a start, the view is absolutely stunning! When we entered the hut we were treated with a basket of goodies and some essentials in the fridge which was a lovely touch.
The hut absolutely has everything you need, without making it feel cramped. The hut has a fantastic layout inside and we definitely made good use of the beautiful log burner and hot tub outside (even in February!)
David greeted us a couple of hours after we arrived and we had a pleasant chat, he then came and wished us well the day before we departed, it was a lovely touch.
We will definitely be returning in the future and recommending it to all of our friends. Can’t wait to stay here again!

Mrs Hillyard September 2017
The owners Amanda and David were wonderful hosts who wanted to make sure we were happy with everything. The welcome cream tea was a lovely touch. The Shepherds Hut was very well appointed with everything needed for a 'get away' type of holiday. Sitting in the Hot tub with views over St Michael's Mount is a truely magical experience.

This place is one of a kind with an exceptional view! The shepherds hut is cosy and has everything you need. We loved the simplicity! We used the hot tub loads and spent most evenings watching shooting stars! Just fantastic and plenty of space for a couple and two young children.

An utterly beautiful tranquil place, the hut was perfect beautiful and comfortable. We couldn't have been more thrilled. We were made to feel really welcome and felt relaxed from the moment we arrived. I would reccomend mount view retreat to anyone looking for a quiet relaxing space with loads to do close at hand. Suitable for all ages

Miss Day June 2017
This place is by far the best place I've stayed its nice small and cosy. The view is outstanding waking up to it every morning and sitting in the hot tub in the evening looking over was incredible! We will be returning for sure with our dogs! The owners were the nicest friendliest people going! Going out their way to make sure we had everything we needed and we're having a nice time! Cannot fault this place one bit!
Mrs Ronchetti June 2017
Mount View Retreat is a perfect getaway for any time of the year. The hut itself is beautifully decorated and so warm and cosy. The view outside is amazing, and the hot tub is the icing on the cake. We had a wonderful time here, and it was clear from the start that the owners had put in so much time and effort to make our stay as good as it could be. They truly succeeded in this aim, as we had a fantastic time at this lovely place. Don't have any doubts about booking Mount View Retreat, you won't be disappointed! We can't wait to go back!
