Lowenna means "happiness" in Cornish, and our Shepherd's Hut is certainly a place in which to be happy! Cosy, quirky and romantic, this is the perfect way to enjoy the peace and tranquillity of the countryside without sacrificing your creature comforts.
The hut is set on a 110 acre working organic farm, which comprises 10 acres of woodland and extensive hedge-lined pastures. With streams, ponds, a river frontage and lots of sheep-filled fields, there is a lot to explore, and visitors are more than welcome to lend a hand and learn about lambing, haymaking, hedge-laying or whatever the seasonal work happens to be. We have tried to think of everything you might need, and in the process we have stayed in 5 other huts around the country. Our research took us to some lovely places, but none of them were perfect. We think Lowenna is!
The River Inny flows right past the farmland, and this is perfect for keen fishermen to catch trout and salmon in. There are also several other popular fishing spots in the neighbourhood. There is a huge amount to do around the farm itself, but if you can manage to drag yourself away, this is a wonderful part of the world with much to explore. Within an hour’s drive you will find the Tamar Valley Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, the Moors of Bodmin and Dartmoor, the beaches of the North and South coasts, several National Trust properties, the Eden Project, beautiful gardens, riding schools, and opportunities for paintballing, go-karting, climbing, canoeing, windsurfing, sailing and micro-lighting, to name but a few!
