Stunning Shepard’s Hut in a wonderful location - a really escape and relax experience.

June 2019

What a wonderful holiday! Our stay at Shepherd's Rest was perfect in every way, the owners Nic & Richard made us feel so welcome and what they've created here is a truly special place. The hut is beautiful, spacious, spotlessly clean and equipped with everything you could possibly need. The cream tea and juice on arrival was a lovely touch and the king size bed is super comfy - the best sleep we've ever had away from home! The location and views are even more beautiful in real life and the pretty village is just a short walk away across a couple of fields with a nice little pub and shop selling groceries and cream teas by the river. There are some lovely walks in the area - thanks to Richard for recommending the walk to St. Winnow where we had a fab homemade pasty and & cup of tea. The only disappointing part of our stay was when it was time to leave. We hope to come back one day. BOOK IT, you won't regret it! Hannah, Dean & Murphy

Simply wonderful ! Fantastic owners, beautiful location, brilliant accommodation ..... faultless ! The quality of the hut, both inside and outside, is 10 out of 10. Peaceful environment and stunning views. Friendliness shown by Nic and Richard, the owners, was the icing on the cake. We can guarantee that you will NOT be disappointed by this absolute gem of a retreat.

What a lovely couple who made us feel so welcome. It was the first time we had stayed in a Shepherds Hut and it exceeded all our expectations. It was warm and cosy and a great place to get away from it all . You can honestly see that a lot of thought had gone into equipping it out. It was JUST PERFECT and you wont be disappointed.

You will not be disappointed if you book this place! Truly glamorous glamping in a great location for exploring east Cornwall. Everything has been thought of. A really special place to stay - peaceful and comfortable, cosy and spacious. My stay made even more wonderful by daily kingfisher sightings so take your binoculars.

The Shepherd's Rest absolutly exceeded our expectations. The area around the cottage is beautiful, peaceful and calm, which in combination with the delightful and sunny weather created the opportunity to recover from any stress, tasks and responsibilities we left at home. Although we did not have a car, the hosts provided us with bikes at a very low cost. Admittedly, the hills were tough to climb during long bike trips, but it did, however, provide some great leg training! Our hosts offered us support and tips in order to improve our stay, which we gratefully accepted. It was very easy to get to the sea and the breathtaking neighbouring harbor towns. There were lot of places to go to for eating, shopping and enjoying oneself. Everone who likes long walks along rivers, the sea or in a peaceful forest is at the right place. We happily recommend visiting with a car in order to broaden your choice of destinations!

We had a wonderful stay and got a marvelous impression of the english countryside, and can't wait to come back again someday. We're so cheerful to share this beautiful vacation with others, and helping them find the best place to escape their stressful everday lives like we did.

What a lovely place to stay. It's so quiet and piecefull. Very kind and friendly owners. Everything was very good, we got a great welcome with Dutch cheese (from a local farmer) wich was very nice. We had a great week and love to come back some day.

July 2018

We absolutely loved our stay at the Shepherds rest. From the moment we arrived we felt a weight had been lifted. Richard & Nicola are just fabulous, their attention to detail is spot on and they really have thought of everything to make your stay so very welcoming. We will definitely be returning soon and hopefully it’ll be for longer. This place is heaven on wheels. Kate & Paul London
