This was our fifth visit to Tregwelan Shepherd's Hut, and we will be back. It ticks all the boxes for us.
Mr Mogridge May 2021
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!
Miss Goodliff April 2021
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.
Miss Tilke April 2021

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.

The perfect all round high level glamping experience that we would prefer to keep a secret so we could stay forevermore! Extremely highly recommended.
Miss Mackinnon September 2020
Wonderful - five stars doesn’t do it justice. The perfect holiday.
Ms Gladman August 2020
Stunning view, beautiful hut, helpful hosts
Miss Roberts August 2020
The most perfect holiday!
Ms d'Aragona July 2020
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.
Mr Chatfield July 2020
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.
Mr Halliday February 2020
Wonderful location and beautiful little property, with fantastic hosts. Walkable into Padstow/Rock etc so really little need to use the car. Highly recommended.
Mrs Poole February 2020
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 .
Mrs Ealey September 2019
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!
Mr Pender-Cudlip September 2019
Stunning location, beautifully equipped and decorated Shepherd's Hut, and delightful owners
Mr Dallow August 2019
Perfect. From start to finish. Cannot wait to be back next year!
Mrs David July 2019
The shepherd's hut is one of the most beautiful places we have ever stayed.
Miss Clarke July 2019
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.
Mrs De Jersey July 2019
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 !
Mr Foster May 2019
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.
Ms Curnow May 2019
Tregwelan is simply perfect for a relaxed, car free stay!
Mr Bestall May 2019

Perfect stay at a stunning location, highly recommended
Mrs Wetherell May 2019
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.
Mrs Lea April 2019
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.
Miss Lea April 2019
An amazing slice of heaven, wonderful views. High quality fixtures and fittings. So much more than glamping.
Mr Wolf March 2019
Perfect! Thank‘s to Alison and John for such a warm welcome and this cozy place!
Miss Wilmore November 2018
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 :)

Mr Taylor October 2018
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.
Mr Bland October 2018
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.
Mr Wallis October 2018
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
Mrs Lawton September 2018
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!
Herr Höger September 2018
Little, but great.
Mr Walker August 2018
Mr Barber August 2018
We had an amazing honeymoon here. The views are incredible, the hut is really comfy and the owners couldn't have been more helpful.
Miss Mearing August 2018
Fantastic cottage. Excellent location. Extremely friendly and welcoming owners. Perfect for a getaway!
Mrs Hall July 2018
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!
Miss Lea July 2018
A very well designed hut, with excellent mod-cons. Everything you need is included. Owners extremely welcoming.
Ms Curnow July 2018
We absolutely adored our mini break in the Hut. The facilities were exemplary, the views were perfect.
Mrs Weston June 2018
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
Ms Kataeva June 2018
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
Miss Vaughan March 2018
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!
Mrs Newitt March 2018
Lovely place, so much to do locally never mind Cornwall as a whole.
Great place to switch off and get away from life.
Mr Little December 2017
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
Mr Blanks December 2017
Lovely owners and a view to match the gorgeous hut, would definitely recommend!
Mr Varley November 2017
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.
Mr Wallis September 2017
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!!!
Miss Wilmore July 2017
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.
Ms Clark July 2017
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 !
