The Tregothnan Shepherds Hut - a studio that sleeps 2 guests in 1 bedroom

Located in: Truro
A traditional shepherd's hut from the outside and an indulgent retreat inside – with sumptuous soft furnishings and traditional finishes, it is like no other. Within this bespoke craftsman-built shelter is a romantic bed alcove with a sofa/double bed, kitchen and dining area along with your own private bathroom hut & outside space including off-road car parking.

The Tregothnan Shepherds Hut has been designed and built to exacting standards by Tony Brown, who has lived on the Tregothnan Estate for many years. His business came into being purely by chance. A builder by trade, he has constructed many eco-projects, including a straw bale house. So when his partner said that it would be nice to have a shepherd's hut to practice playing her music in, Tony decided that he would build her one himself. With no plans but memories from the film ‘Far From The Madding Crowd,' Tony built the most beautiful hideaway. This special sanctuary which reflects times gone by is now available for unique breaks in this hidden part of Cornwall.


The Shepherds Hut has a sleeping area, dining area and small kitchen along with its own private bathroom hut – an ideal private space while still having all the facilities you need.

Inside Features: Double bed which turns into a sofa. Kitchen area with sink, hot water kettle, toaster, microwave, mini-fridge/freezer & tabletop hob. Dining table & 2 chairs. A cosy wood-burning stove (basket of logs included, then seasoned wood can be purchased or collected from the hedgerows for free!).

Outside Features: Exclusive bathroom hut with shower, basin, toilet & heated towel rail. Outside dining area with a traditional Kadai firepit. Seating area with tranquil views. Hammock between the apple trees. Off-road car parking.


Electricity, a basket of logs, bed linen & towels are all included but you will need to provide your own beach towels. A basket of logs is provided for the wood burner, thereafter available from the owner. Regrettably, no smoking is allowed.


A welcome pack is provided in the cottage for your arrival, but also available as an extra (£30) is very special wicker hamper containing Tregothnan produce including Kea plum jam, selection of teas and Housekeeper's biscuits. Also available is a stunning private tour of the Tregothnan Gardens (£70 per person). This tour is very special as the gardens are rarely open to the general public. The tour lasts around 2 hours and concludes with a Tregothnan cream tea. It is a very special treat! Kayak and paddleboard hire can be provided for cottages in Coombe. You can pre-book your kayak or paddleboard (1 person Kayak: £185 per week, £70 per day. Paddleboard: £185 per week, £70 per day) at the same time as making your booking. Exploring the River Fal by kayak is a simply magical experience whilst you are in Coombe. In addition, the Estate has a rowing boat available to hire (£195 per week, £80 per day, max 4 person) if you would prefer a slightly more sturdy vessel for your adventures! A mooring directly in front of the cottage is also available to hire (£25 per week) for boats up to 15ft. For larger boats up to 25ft, there are three floating moorings which can be hired on request and subject to availability. When taking to the water, guests are able to explore Coombe on the Cowlands Creek - a unique and special estuary off the River Fal.
