    Myself and my partner stayed here on the weekend just gone, and omg what a beautiful place. It was truely amazing. It is away from all the hustle and bustle. On arrival Karen was waiting with the keys she was very welcoming and had alot of knowledge of the local area and recommendations. She instantly made us feel welcome. The hut is beautiful, well looked after and loved. You have a little camp fire and a little pond with a decking area. It is in the middle of the woods so the sound of wildlife is beautiful and just so calming. They even left us a small welcome pack which was so appreciated. The hut is well equipped and even has a few games etc so nice to sit and have a game of something we wouldn't do at home. This place was the perfect getaway and I would highly highly recommend staying here. Thank you Nick and Karen for the best weekend.

The property

About three miles from the village of Gunnislake, surrounded by serene woodland, is Rock View Shepherd's Hut.

This beautiful retreat is set within broad-leafed woodland, close to Wheal Josiah, the now abandoned, but former richest copper mine in Europe.

Wander through this lovely land towards the hut and step up into the romantic studio accommodation.

On your left sits a lovely dining area, which can be transformed into a cosy double bed come night-time.

With no TV or WiFi, this really is a relaxing retreat for you and your other half to get away from it all.

A compact yet nicely appointed kitchen also comes nearby, while the layout benefits charmingly from a woodburning stove and a flutter of delightful copper features indicating the copper mine grounds that the property rests on.

Completing this unique bolthole is a fresh white shower room.

Outside is a private woodland garden with a table, chairs and a fire pit - an idyllic spot to unwind.

Beyond the garden are acres of woodland and the Tamar Trails activity centre for walking and cycling, which is around a 20-minute walk away.

Nearby are the historic market town of Tavistock, the National Trust's Cotehele House, Buckland Abbey and Morwellham Quay, the location of the BBC's Edwardian Farm.

Further afield, Plymouth has shops, theatres, the National Marine Aquarium and historic Barbican.

Rock View Shepherd’s Hut is a peaceful and picturesque retreat where you can choose to do as little or as much as you wish.

About the location

GUNNISLAKE

Tavistock 5 miles; Plymouth 18 miles.

The small rural village of Gunnislake lies on the steeply wooded banks of the River Tamar.

It has village pubs and a small selection of shops.

Notably, the village sits at one end of the scenic Tamar Valley Railway - with regular services along the river bank to Plymouth.

The area is perfect for exploring Dartmoor, the south and north coast beaches and the attractions of Cornwall’s far west.

Close to hand, the Dartmoor town of Tavistock with its pannier market, pubs and restaurants is a must, as well as the popular fishing village of Calstock, renowned for its crafts and festivals, while the Donkey Sanctuary and Cotehele House and Gardens (NT) are just 10 minutes away.

Enjoy a round of golf at St Mellion (8 miles), explore the restored Victorian mining village at Morwhellam Quay (4 miles), search for otters and deer along the Tamar Valley footpath, visit the National Trust owned Lydford Gorge, or take a trip to the beach and picturesque harbour at Looe (25 miles) - there’s something for everyone.

For something really different, why not ride the scenic Tamar Valley Railway into Plymouth and spend the day in the fabulous Marine Aquarium or strolling the historic Plymouth Hoe?.
