    Nestled in a secluded corner of the owner’s meadow, this delightful shepherds hut is a cosy and stylish retreat. It is set in the heart of the stunning South Cornwall countryside, but is an easy jaunt to some amazing beaches, great tourist attractions and bustling towns. The Wool Shed, complete with a raised decked area with distant sea views, is the perfect escape for two. The beaches of Caerhays, Gorran Haven and Hemmick are easily reached, and the bustling fishing village of Mevagissey is close by. The narrow streets of Mevagissey are lined with local pubs, shops and cafés, which all seem to gravitate to the working harbour where you can take a boat out for fishing trips to catch your supper for the barbecue back at The Wool Shed.
    The Lost Gardens of Heligan are just a couple of minutes away and an essential part of a Cornish holiday, with its stunning jungle and beautiful woodland walks. There is also a great local farm shop for treats and provisions. At nearby Pentewan you can hire bikes and cycle the off road and flat trail leading up to the town of St Austell, and for the more energetic, you can eventually cycle to the Eden Project on a network of local trails. This wonder is worth every penny, with its huge biomes and tropical rainforest, it is an amazing day out. The North Cornwall Coast is also accessible, with towns such as Newquay, Padstow and St Ives. The two Cornish coasts are only approximately 15 miles apart at this point.
    The area around The Wool Shed is full of woodland walks, narrow lanes, local pubs, hidden coves and sandy beaches, and quaint little villages steeped in tradition and history. The Roseland Peninsula, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, is stunning right down to the sailing village of St Mawes, where you can actually catch a ferry over to Falmouth for a day out in this bustling town. There are golf courses, sailing, fishing, cycling and surfing all available nearby, making The Wool Shed the perfect place for a rest or to enjoy the activities this county offers. Beach 1½ miles. Shop, pub and restaurant ½ mile.

    "We had a wonderful weekend with everything we needed. A much deserved break in a beautiful Shepard’s hut "
    John – 1 Nov 2020
    "We had a fantastically relaxing stay at the Wool Shed in late October. The weather wasn't great but the Shed and it's location were a great place just to unwind during these very strange times. The area is great for exploring with a wide variety of footpaths and easy access to the South West Coast Path, with beautiful beaches only accessible on foot. The owners are fantastic giving us a warm welcome at the beginning but giving us privacy for the rest of the break. We'll definitely try and get back, it must be fantastic there in the summer."
    Andy and Samantha – 2 Sep 2020
    "Fantastic really nice little find. Can't wait to visit again soon"

    "The Wool Shed is so cosy, well situated and well laid out that it makes for a very enjoyable stay. Surprisingly spacious due to clever use of space and lovely and warm with the wood burner lit. Full size shower was a pleasant surprise too. Would definitely recommend."
    "I stayed here for a week with my dog, it was a gorgeous location with views across rolling countryside in all directions. The Wool Shed was really comfortable and very well equipped. The owners were incredibly friendly, as was their dog Denzil, who often came down for a play with my dog. The surrounding areas are beautiful and we had lovely days out exploring, walking & eating! the amazing weather we were lucky to have was the icing on the cake. Thank you for making us so welcome."

    "Lovely to have the outdoor space which was private and secluded... the wool shed was amazing and exceeded our expectations in regards to how spacious and well equipped it was! We had an amazing time and lovely to be able to bring our dog too! Many thanks"
    "Great place, peaceful and tranquil location.highly recommended"
    "Super, quirky accommodation everything you need, host's were so helpful, lovely location... So quiet. Would thoroughly recommend."
    "Absolutely amazing definitely recommend if your after that peace and quiet atmosphere very friendly owners, they had to come out and save us because we got so lost so thank you to them. Me and my partner have never been to Cornwall so we chose it for our 5th year Anniversary get away and its was perfect only thing is take a bit of money with you. But it was absolutely perfect seeing the sunrise and sunset sat on the decking it beautifully.Thank you again for letting us stay at the wool shed"
    "Had a fantastic time in the Wool shed, very private and lovely views. We were pleasantly surprised with how private the whole area is, yes it is at the end of their garden, but you would never think it. You have a lovely decking area all to yourself with views over the countryside. You cannot see the owners house from the Shed. Lovely fire and decor in the shed, very comfy bed! Only thing I would say is 1 more toilet roll would have been good but very minor issue! Very cosy and lovely stay, would definitely go back!"
    "We had a fantastic week at The Wool Shed which is in a fantastic location in a great area. The weather was kind to us and we enjoyed lots of walks along the costal path and beaches. Also enjoyed the local pub where great food and ale were available along with some local hospitality. Would recommend the property and would certainly visit again."
    "I absolutely loved my stay here. Beautifully decorated, the most comfortable mattress I have ever slept on and a massive shower."
