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, longe in the wood-fired hot tub and soak up the view, 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!

The Lambing Hut
Loved this little hut, had everything we needed and a very comfortable bed! Had a great long weekend exploring around Looe and Polperrro and a memorable walk to the train station through the beautiful woods carpeted in bluebells and wild garlic (only to miss the train!).
Will recommend this place to my friends.

The Lambing Hut
My favourite holiday location by far - we had the most peaceful, wonderful time here in the Lambing Hut. The whole team at the farm are so kind - Andy was super friendly and respectful of privacy, everyone in the office were so easy going and helpful. While there we booked a riding lesson which was definitely a highlight, our instructor was clearly very experienced and put us at complete ease. The whole farm is a very special place of rolling hills and close to the beach - couldn't recommend it enough!

The Lambing Hut
This was a fantastic! A really lovely escape to a very rural setting. With views of rolling countryside and a few horses it was a dream trip. We stayed 3 nights and enjoyed scrabble ( provided) in the hut and the firepit. Car parking was at the bottom of the field with a bit of an incline to reach the hut. The shower, toilet and sink block about 20m away. Not ideal in wet weather but hut was cosy and warm to come back to. Holly and Andy were very friendly and accommodating, even left us some coffee, milk and Eggs- a lovely touch. . We hope to make it back!

We stayed for 3 nights to relax during our trip around Devon and Cornwall and couldn’t have picked a better place to do so. There are wonderful peaceful views across the countryside along with 3 beautiful horses who liked to pop up and say hello every evening!
There are also some nice sign-posted walks to do nearby through the farm and woods along with a small shop which sells some local produce.
Holly and Andy were really helpful when needed and would definitely recommend staying here if you’re looking for a bit of peace and quiet and lovely evenings around a firepit!

It's rare that a holiday turns out to be exactly what the host promises on their site, even rarer that it turns out to be better. Hideaway huts' Shepherds hut is exactly that, better than expected after high expectations. The setting is perfect- views to the coast on a working farm with enough privacy to really relax but with someone always there if you need help. The farm has plenty to offer whatever the weather with a games room, pool and super friendly animals including the two horses who shared our field and entertained our dog. The hut is beautifully kitted out - bed was comfy, log burner very toasty all night, games and books if you need entertaining when the sun goes down and you stop staring at the view. Easy to walk into Looe with decent walking shoes and the train or bus will drop you back nearby if the local beers and ciders take out your walking legs. Great hot shower for post walk recovery (after gentle swim in the pool). Would recommend reading all the comments left by previous guests in the book in the hut for ideas for meals out, trips out etc. When we go back to Cornwall we will definitely stay here again.
From the host
We invite you to cosy up to nature in one of two delightful shepherd's huts on our Cornish farm, for the perfect luxury camping – or Glamping – holiday. Each shepherd's hut nestles in its own idyllic setting at opposite ends of the farm with breath-taking country views. Each has a private luxury bathroom hut which you won’t have to share with anyone else. Horse riding, spa pool, tennis, farm walks and more on-site.
Holly and Andy provide a folder full of recommendations and OS maps of the surrounding area. Follow the river back to Looe, full of excellent seafood restaurants and home to several beaches. East Looe beach is the most popular, but try quieter and rocky Second and Sanders Beach, reached through a break in the rocks known as the Khyber Pass. Boat trips run regularly from Looe out to Looe Island (01872 273939), while on a rainy day Old Guildhall Musem (01503 263709) houses maritime history in a 15th-century former court and jail. Further west, Fowey is a wonderfully scenic part of the Heritage Coast. Those really wanting to escape any crowds should head inland to Bodmin Moor. The famous Eden Project (01726 811911) is a 40 minute drive away, while Lanhydrock House (01208 265950) and Antony House (01752 812191) are within half an hour. Hideaway huts also has a host of good cycle routes and footpaths running right past the farm.
Food and drink
If you wish to cook for yourself, there is a store of simple dry goods ready for use in the hut and a folder with simple recipe suggestions using the stove top and gas rings. You can shop locally for other ingredients at Duloe Community Shop. Excellent homemade food can be delivered to your hut by the campsite's own ‘Coombe Kitchen’ and you can order groceries to await your arrival in your hut/fridge. Cornish Orchards (01503 269007) is just up the road, selling various juices, ciders, chutneys and more. The excellent Plough Inn (01503 262556) is a 30 minute walk away in the nearest village, while fantastic seafood and other Cornish delicacies can be found in the restaurants of Looe (5 minutes drive).
