Live the dream of a simple life, as shepherds in times gone by! Stay in our romantic original Shepherd’s Hut, Thomas Hardy style, nestled in a peaceful green valley by a babbling brook. Enjoy a perfect view of life at Cotna Eco retreat – chickens, ducks, horses, organic gardens and hedgerow rustlings. On cycle route number 3 (London to Lands End) with woodland walks and the Cornwall South West Coast path, near some of the best of south Cornwall’s hidden beaches.
Ismay contains the comforts of a double bed with an extra single bunk, Indian silk hangings and locally sourced organic cotton textiles. In this way it is a step up from camping, and could even be seen as glamping! A short hop across the stream is your kitchen hut, fitted out with all the provisions and equipment you need for cooking, either in the hut or on the BBQ provided. The shower shed is nearby with hot water and posh compost loos.
Ismay has been an oasis of calm, and in the spirit of Thomas Hardy, has proven the perfect place to finish writing my novel! The chickens and ducks have been excellent neighbours, listen out for the cronk of Ravens circling overhead and the Tawny owls at night. The whole stay has been tranquil and relaxed -can’t recommend it highly enough. Thank you. (Luke Phillips, Kent)
