Everything about Tregwelan Shepherds Hut from the warm welcome, to the view, to the home from home feel makes this a 5 star experience.

We absolutely loved our stay at Tregwelan Hut and would love to return. It is set in a wonderfully private location with outstanding views. If you want to park up and leave the car behind it provides easy walking access to Padstow and the foot passenger ferry to Rock. We loved the outdoor kitchen too, which although we only used for a bit of extra storage space as the weather was cold, would be wonderful on a warm evening. A wonderful spot, with friendly but discreet hosts. We can’t wait to return in warmer weather some time.

Thoroughly recommend the shepherds hut. The location and views are spectacular. So easy to walk into Padstow or join the camel trail. The hut is comfortable and cosy with everything you need. The outside space is very private with a BBQ and firepit

Lovely shepherds hut in a great location with amazing views. Ideal spot for walking into Padstow and plenty of walks around the area. Catching the ferry to Rock is a good day out and exploring all the local beaches. Plenty of places to eat out or you can cook/BBQ back at the hut. John and Alison are lovely hosts and knowledgable about the area. We would definitely recommend a stay and hope to return.

A beautiful, well equipped hut in a truly stunning location. Fantastic, friendly hosts whose helpfulness and attention to detail made for a lovely stay. I would not only recommend Tregwelan Shepherd's Hut, but hope to return soon in sunnier months!

This was our fourth stay at Tregwelan Shepherd's Hut and hopefully won't be our last. It is a wonderful place to relax and unwind - fantastic accommodation in a fantastic location and Alison and John are the perfect hosts. Sharon and Vince Wetherell.

It's wonderful that you find the owners to be so hospitable. We're very much looking forward to welcoming you back on your next visit. Julie, Customer Support

We had a great time at the Tregwelan shepherds hut and can’t recommend it highly enough. The hosts/hut /facilities and location were all excellent and we’re very much looking forward to our next stay in 2022.

A proper get away from it all piece of Cornwall with the very best view to be found

Just bliss. Beautiful view, comfy accommodation, perfectly located in peaceful surroundings.

Very enjoyable stay very central for exploring on foot and on bikes It’s position means that is peaceful and relaxing away from busy Padstow, but close enough to enjoy when you want. The view is mesmerising and one which I will miss ! The hut is beautiful with all considerations of comfort and ease it is immaculate and well maintained small but perfectly formed. Thank you we hope to be back soon.

This was our fifth visit to Tregwelan Shepherd's Hut, and we will be back. It ticks all the boxes for us.

As a surprise getaway for my partners 30th, i removed her blindfold once we arrived at the hut. Her breath was taken away by the views and the subtle simplicity of the shepherds hut. On the inside, there was nothing simple, with every detail being exceptionally thought through with shower room, hobs, wood burner, fold out bed and even Wifi. Far more than a shepherd would expect! The location was perfect, a 15min walk from Padstow and easy access to many places along the camel trail and ferry cross from Padstow, and the hosts more than welcoming and knowledgeable of the area. Book Now!

An amazing location perfectly suited for a quiet couples get away. The sunsets are unparalleled, Padstow is a short walk away with plenty of pubs and restaurants! Would definitely come back again.

Would highly recommend, we can’t wait to go back! Nothing we did not like

From start to finish, our stay was exceptional. Alison and John were amazing hosts and made us feel very welcome and nothing was ever too much. The hut was well stocked with everything we could need and the location was incredible. We couldn't rate our stay enough and we'll definitely be back soon.

Your review for Tregwelan Shepherd's Hut is a delight to read. We are sure that Alison and John would have been thrilled to read your review and that the hut was so well stocked. We really look forward to welcoming you back and should you need any assistance we are more than happy to help. Sarah, Customer Support

The perfect all round high level glamping experience that we would prefer to keep a secret so we could stay forevermore! Extremely highly recommended.

Wonderful - five stars doesn’t do it justice. The perfect holiday.

Stunning view, beautiful hut, helpful hosts

The most perfect holiday!

Those who decide to stay here should love each other very much as space is obviously at a premium. However, if you do decide to stay here you will be met by the most charming, well-appointed, beautifully furnished shepherd's hut in the most spectacular location with breath-taking ever-changing views, where everything is well thought out. The outside space is also perfect and it too, is very well equipped. A great place to soak up the views and stare at the stars. The owners are wonderful, discreet and incredibly accommodating. The photos do it justice.

Amazing location and brilliant for an active couple who want to be a situated a stones throw from Padstow and Rock.

Alison and John are great with the small details that make a holiday perfect.

Wonderful location and beautiful little property, with fantastic hosts. Walkable into Padstow/Rock etc so really little need to use the car. Highly recommended.

The Shepard’s hut was amazing and the views stunning. I was there between Feb 10-14 2020 during storm ciera ! And I was so snug and cosy I had everything I needed and the Woodburner was lovely. Fab location for walking and cycling. The owners were so welcoming and helpful but very unobtrusive , and after my arrival communicated by text message. Can’t wait to go back .

The most perfect place for a relaxing, quiet and peaceful escape with lots to do on your doorstep if you wish. The views across the estuary and out to sea are amazing and ever changing!

Stunning location, beautifully equipped and decorated Shepherd's Hut, and delightful owners

Perfect. From start to finish. Cannot wait to be back next year!

The shepherd's hut is one of the most beautiful places we have ever stayed.

Lovely Shepherds Hut in a lovely, peaceful location but within easy reach of Padstow and Rock. Alison and John are welcoming and provided some lovely Gluten free welcoming treats. Amazing, ever changing views. Highly recommended.

The hut was fantastic with everything we needed, we enjoyed our walks each day into beautiful Padstow and around the coast. Views from the hut were wonderful and ever changing. The owners of the hut were extremely helpful but not intrusive. We really hope to visit again in the future !

The description Glamping does not do the Shepherd's Hut justice. The hut itself is thoughtfully designed, beautifully crafted and cosily comfortable. The location is idyllic, with fabulous views over the Camel estuary, Padstow and the surrounding countryside - all of which can be enjoyed while drinking tea in bed! The owners' home is nearby but the hut is positioned and screened to avoid being overlooked and they are extremely careful to leave their guests in peace - even sending texts to make sure we had everything we needed rather than calling in. We had a warm welcome on arrival and found the hut provisioned with everything we needed - including a delicious cream tea. Padstow is a pleasant walk along the camel trail and we only needed the car for excursions. All of which added up to a wonderful week and we were sad to leave.

Tregwelan is simply perfect for a relaxed, car free stay!

Myself and my wife thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this beautiful location.The sheperds hut is a superb stay,what a view!We would love to stay here again sometime and would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a relaxing break in fantastic surroundings.

Perfect stay at a stunning location, highly recommended

It was our second stay at the Shepherd's Hut in 2019 (and it's only May). I think that tells you how wonderful the accommodation is. The location and hosts are second to none. We'll be back.

This Shepherds Hut comes highly recommended for anyone wanting a ‘get away from it all’ break. The situation of the Hut together with the mesmerising views will ensure a reinvigorated new you! We cannot wait to return.

An amazing slice of heaven, wonderful views. High quality fixtures and fittings. So much more than glamping.

Perfect! Thank‘s to Alison and John for such a warm welcome and this cozy place!

Another amazing stay at the Shepard's hut. Amazing to get to use the wood burner this time around. Lovely location, amazing view, great hosts. We will be back a third time soon :)

Thank you for your review - we're so pleased to hear that you had another wonderful holiday and we look forward to welcoming you back! Kari, Customer Support

If you want a quiet peaceful break with a fantastic view, this could be the place for you. Just a 20 minute walk into Padstow picking up the Camel Trail a few yards down the hill.

Beautiful location and very smart 'quirky' accommodation. Perfect for a quiet week away and great access on foot to Padstow and the coast. The owners are extremely friendly and on hand if needed.

Our stay at Tregwelan Shepherd's Hut was everything and more. The hut was so cosy and welcoming and had such lovely touches to it to make our stay extra special! We loved the cream tea on arrival, and sitting and relaxing playing the board games provided! Myself and my partner had a great laugh! It was something else to have your morning coffee outside looking at the fantastic view! The location was fantastic and we was able to take a walk in to Padstow a couple of days! We didn't use the car the whole weekend! Alison and John have made this experience wonderful! We cannot thank them enough. Had the most perfect weekend, with lots of happy memories made. Thank you so much, the hut is perfect and beautiful. Emily and Tom (Penzance, Cornwall) XX

Amazing property, amazing location beautiful views, owners make you feel very welcome with lots of little touches including a cream tea and wine. Lovely walks to Padstow along the Camel trail, where there are lovely shops, places to eat and drink. You will not be disappointed with a visit to this Shepherds Hut, breathtaking!

Little, but great.


We had an amazing honeymoon here. The views are incredible, the hut is really comfy and the owners couldn't have been more helpful.

Fantastic cottage. Excellent location. Extremely friendly and welcoming owners. Perfect for a getaway!

We had a wonderful week and didn't want the holiday to end. Alison and John are so welcoming and extremely helpful too. The Shepherd's Hut is just perfect in every detail, we couldn't have asked for a nicer place to spend our holiday. The ever changing view of the estuary and watching the sun set behind Padstow, made this location very special. Definitely keen to come back and stay again!

A very well designed hut, with excellent mod-cons. Everything you need is included. Owners extremely welcoming.

We absolutely adored our mini break in the Hut. The facilities were exemplary, the views were perfect.

Small but perfectly formed. This hut although very small it is as perfect as can be. Very clever interior design with great attention to detail. The view is breathtaking and the view from the very comfy bed will make it hard to drag yourself out to explore. Easy and pretty 15/20 minute walk into padstow via the camel route (we did it with a pushchair with no isssues) Book this hut - you really won’t regret it

We had the most amazing honeymoon time in this little gem ! Will recommend it to friends and will be definitely returning for anniversaries ! Wonderful facilities, perfect location, lovely hosts - we couldn’t wish for more ! Sveta and Drew

An absolutely delightful stay at the Shepherds hut. A warm welcome by the hosts to a very well equipped and nicely decorated shepherds huts with great views that you can even see from the bed! pure bliss. Wonderful place to relax and then when you feel like it, you can wander down to Padstow and enjoy the town!

Lovely place, so much to do locally never mind Cornwall as a whole.

Great place to switch off and get away from life.

Stay as long as you can. Location is perfect. Walking distance to the great restaurants in Padstow or hop over to Rock on the Ferry. The view is literally breath taking. Alison and John are Wonderful hosts. The hut takes self catering to another level - handmade crockery. Fresh milk, bread and treats on arrival.Thank you for a memorable experience - We look forward to our return even though we are only 20 minutes away Thank you, D&S

Lovely owners and a view to match the gorgeous hut, would definitely recommend!

If you’re looking for some different/unusual accommodation the Shepherd’s Hut ticks this box. A cottage that has been through a hot dry, it is perfectly equipped with everything to ensure you’ll relax and make the most of your weekend. Superb views of the coastline coupled with a 20min walk to Padstow and 1hr 20 into Wadebridge so the location isn’t bad either. If you’re not the most adventurious walker, the camel trail is flat and will fill you with a sense of achievement when you reach you destination. Wouldnt hesitate to recommend this to anyone.

We loved our mini break. Location is excellent, right on the Camel Trail, great for walking, cycling or running. Close to the beach, nice restaurants and a bit of shopping in Padstow is great. If you don't fancy going out you can relax in the garden, use the BBQ, light the fire pit or curl up and go to sleep in front of the wood burner. We would recommend eating at The Golden Lion in Padstow, great food, lovely cosy setting and not over priced, attentive staff and best of all family run. We came back well rested and wanting to book again another time!!!

This is a true home away from home. What more can I say - stunning views, amazing hosts and a wonderful little pad in a great location. This is one I would recommend to anyone. The facilities are great - fire pit, amazing bbq and then Alison/John have thought of all those little touches that make the stay even more special. A place to relax and have some time out. We thoroughly enjoyed our time at the hut and the only issue was having to leave to come home.

We had the most magical short break and I will definitely be back. A beautiful setting in a perfect location. Being able to walk into Padstow in the evenings and enjoy the restaurants as well as having the luxury of an exceptional BBQ with stunning private view meant that this hut had it all.

All the daytime activities that the camel estuary has to offer are on your doorstep, whether that's walking, cycling, sailing or surfing or enjoying a local cream tea/pint its all accessible within walking distance.

The hit itself was so wonderful and cosy and not a bit crampt. The level of care and attention that went into every furnishing and detail was incredible. We enjoyed every minute of our holiday and have since been unable to stop raving about it to all our family and friends. Thank you Alison and John !
