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.

Shepherd Hut at Little Sheepham

1 unit · Glamping25 acres · Modbury, England
The Shepherd Hut at Little Sheepham, is perfectly situated equidistant between the fabulous South Devon coast and glorious Dartmoor so for those of you who find it difficult to decide whether to go for a country holiday or a coastal holiday, this is perfect; you can have both! Our pretty local town of Modbury has a Co-op, butchers and delicatessen and is a lovely place to wander and explore the interesting shops, galleries, cafes and pubs. Treat yourself to coffee and cake at one of the cafes or visit the ancient Exeter Inn for lunch. Spend time at our favourite beach ( 15 minutes away) at the entrance to the Erme Estuary, part of the Flete Estate where parts of the films Sense and Sensibility and International Velvet were filmed. Bantham and Bigbury Beaches are 20 minutes away. The beautiful coastal town of Dartmouth is only 25 minutes drive away. It is easy to spend at least a day looking around the eclectic collection of shops or taking a boat trip up the River Dart to Dittisham or as far as Totnes. Dartmouth has some great restaurants and pubs. The pretty harbour town of Salcombe is a mere 20 minutes drive. If the sun is shining, take the passenger ferry across to Mill bay beach. Totnes makes for an interesting day's shopping in particular on Fridays when there is a colourful market in the morning. There are some wonderful coastal walks locally, some in particular offer the opportunity for a circular walk with a lunch stop at a pub! Take a trip onto Dartmoor and enjoy the wilderness but drive carefully as the native ponies, sheep and cattle roam freely. There are some amazing walks on the moor for all abilities from a short gentle stroll to a decent day's hike. There are some lovely villages to visit on the moors and some great cafes, farm shops and pubs to grab refreshments. We are only 10 minutes from the A38, making us not only easy to get to but also making a day trip to Exeter or a lunch at Rick Stein's in Padstow, Cornwall a real possibility.

The miles-long sandy beach is a boon for families, while its southwest-facing aspect make it a serious swell-catcher for surfers too – in stormy weather the Porthleven harbour walls are a spectacular place to watch the waves. Locally, there are plenty of good Porthleven campsites so, whether you're pitching your tent or parking up a campervan, take your pick and get on down to the south west. Fresh fish on the quay and a healthy serving of Cornish cream teas awaits!
