Luxurious, exclusive glamping hut in Cornwall's idyllic Looe Valley.

Many sites claim to offer a picture perfect hideaway but few can compete with the idyllic shepherd’s hut nestled on the hillside of Treworgey Farm. With a truly spectacular location and 150 acres all to yourself, Hideaway Huts is a campsite offering perfect seclusion for anyone lucky enough to bag a prized night in their calendar.

From the cliff-hung coastline of south-west Cornwall, meander up the Looe Valley to a remote farmstead and through the meadow gate to your quaint new four-wheeled home. Overlooking a lush rolling landscape, sculpted by the weaving river beyond, this shepherd’s hut is a glamping haven and a masterpiece of home design. Inside, the light finish and rectangular windows make it feel open and airy, while the log-burning stove and wooden furnishings create a snug, warm atmosphere and a sumptuous sanctuary on those unfortunate days when rain drums upon the roof.

Everything you could need is waiting within. Pots, pans, logs, dried foodstuffs, recipes, games, books, maps, toiletries… the list goes on. There’s also a handy folder compiled by Holly and Andy with recommendations on what to do nearby, though its unlikely you’ll be in a rush to leave. On a nice day, fold out the deck chairs and read in the sun, jump in the heated swimming pool, or put on your game face for a quick rally on the tennis court.

While the miles of surrounding meadows are free for guests to wander, the more adventurous should saddle up at Treworgey Farm’s licensed riding school, which welcomes all levels of ability and promises a great way to explore the area. Back down the slopes towards the shoreline, the harbour town of Looe is an absorbing place to visit, its quays stacked with crates and lobster baskets. There are several fantastic beaches here, as well as boat trips to one of Cornwall's most diverse island bird sanctuaries. The dramatic heritage coast stretches east to the staggeringly beautiful Fowey estuary, while a short drive north takes you to Bodmin Moor, a miniature wilderness often overshadowed by the larger National Parks.

Despite the array of options on your doorstep, don’t plan your holiday with too much haste. The pace of life at Hideaway Huts will remind you that life isn’t about chasing a to-do list of predetermined activities. Instead, cherish the exclusivity of a glampsite that's yours alone, meeting with the animals of Treworgey Farm and enjoying the spectacular views. If you don’t manage to make it beyond the nearest village then hey, you’ll just have to go back next year!

Getting There

The site is about half an hour west of Plymouth, near Looe. At the Dobwalls roundabout on the A38 (half an hour west of Plymouth, 20 minutes east of Bodmin) turn into Dobwalls village. In the centre of Dobwalls turn right, signed Duloe, passing the Spar and the School as you leave the village. At the T junction in Duloe (4 miles later) turn right along the B3254 towards Looe. Follow the road round hard left corner, down the hill. You pass Cornish Orchards on the left and the campsite is up the next lane on the right. There's a Treworgey sign at the end of the lane. If you get to the railway bridge you've gone to far. Be aware, sat nav routes may appear quicker than above but are much narrower.

Sandplace station is the closest, on the branch line between Liskeard and Looe. It is about a mile up the hill from there, around a 15 minutes to walk, though if you give warning Holly or Andy may be around to pick you up. Liskeard is the closest main line station. 3 1/2 hours from London Paddington and about an hour and a half from Penzance.
