Diddylake Shepherd Huts

1 unit · Glamping15 acres · Bodmin Moor, England
Two handcrafted shepherd huts in a very private, tranquil location on Bodmin Moor. The huts are off grid and have a low environmental impact. We're 3.5 miles away from the picturesque village of St Neot and 8 miles away from the historic market town of Liskeard. The North and South coasts are easily accessible offering some of the best surfing, swimming and cliff walks. The huts are cosy and homely with logburner and comfortable bed! The spring fed hot/cold shower is next to a compost loo. It’s not often you get to live in the heart of a Site of Special Scientific Interest, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty or a Dark Sky Reserve, but Diddylake is in the middle of all three. The two huts set by Diddylake house (the ruin) on the rolling moors feel a world away from just about anything. One hut is your bedroom, with wood-burning stove and thick blankets keeping it cosy in any weather, and the other is your kitchen with hobs and a dining table and the BBQ and fire pit just outside. The shower and compost loo are in their own wooden hut down by the old house. The whole site has been done out by Jackson with recycled finds and local timber, giving the spaces a soft woody smell and a homely feel. There might be a chilly stroll to the loo or a dash between the huts here and there, but it all gives you a sense of living in a different age and in real wilderness. Jacksons home is a few hundred metres away, and doesn’t intrude on you at all, but it’s still close enough that you can wander up for assistance or to visit the livestock. The rest of your time you have the whole of Bodmin Moor on your doorstep and the coast within easy reach. Split your days between rambling in the hills, trips to surfing beaches or the marked hiking trails round nearby Colliford Lake. Even lounging at the huts you’ll not want for wildlife encounters. There's lots of wildlife to observe, birds include buzzards, duck, swallows, skylarks and cuckoos just to mention a few. Listen carefully and you could hear a red kite. Deer and fox are frequent visitors and keep an eye open for butterflies, dragonflies, newts and frogs. Keep your camera to hand! At night, the seclusion is brought home by spectacular starry skies.

Dog-friendly shepherd's huts in Helford River guide

Overview

Riverside pubs, tree-lined canal ways, and secluded beaches tempt travellers to the Helford River estuary on Cornwall’s south coast. On the north shore, visit the National Trust gardens of Trebah and Glendurgan, paddle around the creeks on a kayak or boat cruise, then ride the ferry across the river from Helford Passage. Wildlife-watching is the main attraction at the estuary, and there are plenty of opportunities. Enjoy bird-watching along the beaches, spot crabs and other sea life at Nare Point or Prisk Cove, and visit the Cornish Seal Sanctuary. There’s no camping along the riverside, but country campgrounds lie just a short drive away.

When to go

Summer is the most popular time to discover the estuary, when it’s possible to swim at the beaches. However, the best wildlife-watching opportunities are in autumn and winter, when migrating birds flock to Cornwall’s south shores. Tent camping in Cornwall is best from late spring through early autumn, but year-round camping is still possible with a caravan or motorhome. Ferries run across the Helford River between April and October. 

Know before you go

  • The Helford River lies between Falmouth Bay and the Lizard Peninsula, along the south coast of Cornwall. The north shore is about 9 miles south of Falmouth or a 30-minute drive. Passenger ferries run across the river to Helford village on the south shore. 
  • Facilities are limited along the river, so it’s best to bring everything you need with you. There are restrooms, a café, and a general store in Helford Village, as well as a few pubs along the north shore. 
  • Most campsites require advance booking, and many ask for the full payment in advance. Be sure to check opening dates, as many close in the winter months.
