About this property

In a quiet spot on the outskirts of the village of Ludgvan sits this delightful shepherd s hut overlooking an apple orchard and set apart from other properties on the site. Set within 5 acres of tropical gardens with winding footpaths and exotic planting, this makes a lovely base for exploring the area. Enjoy walks along country lanes or join the St Michael s Way Pilgrimage route to Lelant near St Ives and experience the historical significance of this path. Catch a train from St Erth (3 miles) into St Ives and delight at the beauty of one of the most picturesque train journeys in the land. Explore Marazion (2.5 miles), on the shores of Mount s Bay, with its quaint streets, lined with beautiful old cottages and elegant merchants houses and at low tide walk the causeway over to St Michael s Mount to marvel at the 360 degree views from the top. Stepping up into the characterful hut you will find yourself in the open plan kitchen/dining/sleeping area. Tucked away at the far end under the curved ceiling is a double bed with a retro tubular frame. The galley kitchen allows for cooking simple meals with the additional fire pit/BBQ in the garden for increased options and there s a dining set with café style chairs. The shower room is small but beautifully formed with a walk in shower and a built in wardrobe for clothes storage. Meticulously designed to pay homage to its rural heritage, this charming hut is adorned with simple yet tasteful furnishings, making it an ideal destination for a short stay to relax and rejuvenate. Embrace the delightful and cosy atmosphere of this country retreat offering a truly authentic back to nature experience. Open the doors and listen to the sound of the birds singing from the trees and have breakfast al fresco enjoying the views over the orchard and woodland below. The outside area is peaceful and gorgeous with a private decking area with a wood fired hot tub in which to relax and enjoy the tranquil surroundings. Explore the glorious gardens which are teaming with birds and wildlife and exotic plants including Tree Ferns, Rhododendrons and Giant Gunnera from across the world. Ancient varieties of apple trees are planted in the orchard adjoining the hut. Throughout the gardens are various sculptures and statues many created by local artists from local materials.
