  • "We absolutely loved our stay at Westering Sun!"

    Barry and Ann were such wonderful hosts and made sure we were absolutely settled but managed to somehow do this without being invasive, which is an art. Nothing was too much trouble for Barry, and he quickly answered questions, helped us locate things in the hut etc. The location is sensational, you feel like you are totally alone, which is exactly what we wanted. The fields and wildlife are beautiful, and there is even one friendly cat who came to visit us that absolutely made our stay extra special. The hot tub was such a bonus, we loved staying out in the afternoons and evenings, it was super clean and you can tell that Barry and Ann look after it and keep it in good condition. On the day of our arrival Barry was cleaning it out and it was ready to go shortly after, it kept it's temperature for the whole week we were there, and we had no issues and we truly enjoyed this little luxury. The hut was well equipped with towels for the bathroom, towels for the hot tub, a hot plate, a microwave, a mini fridge, kettle, toaster, cutlery and crockery, plus bedding and a pillow each. Barry had even left us bread, butter and milk plus tea, coffee and salt and some nice biscuits and jams etc. This was such a nice little extra touch. We cooked in the hut most evenings and while you must remember it is compact, we had no trouble making our dinners, breakfasts etc. The showers were always powerful and hot! Again it's quite compact in there but my partner is 6"1' and he managed fine. The location is great, we didn't have a day where there wasn't something to do. Bude is a 5 min drive away with easy parking for the beaches, markets, walks and more! It's a lovely stop, plus areas like Tintagel and Boscastle are in easy reach, no more than 40 mins drive, and have such amazing things to do such as St. Nectan's waterfall and the Museum of Witchcraft etc. Honestly, we wish we could have stayed longer. We want to come back when we next have the chance, if you currently undecided let this review sway opinion as you will have such a lovely and relaxing time. Thank you Barry and Ann for such an unforgettable week!

    We are so happy you enjoyed your stay at Westering sun, and hope we will have the pleasure of hosting you again soon Kind regards Barry and Ann Property Owner

  • "Really enjoyed my stay at the Shepherds hut."

    It was very well equipped and prepared for my visit and the location was lovely. Very quiet with great views and a big comfortable bed. The owner Barry was very helpful and obviously keen that everything was spot on with basic provisions such as bread and milk provided for my arrival. The only drawback was an erratic wifi connection which didnt allow internet connection for a lot of the time. My 02 mobile connection worked fine. I didnt avail myself of the hot tub or barbeque but maybe next time if the weather is better.

  • "If you are wanting to get away from the hussle and bustle of everyday life and looking for some where quiet to get away from it all, then this is the place to do it."

    Located in its own private setting overlooking a valley of woodland and a glimpse of the sea, with just birds calls and peace and quiet for company. Going back to basics, ideally suited for a couple of people, this a very clean and well maintained shepherds hut that was a brilliant base for our 10 night stay. Comfy bed, small bathroom with shower, toilet and wash basin, hot and cold water provides for all your personal needs. Small fridge freezer has enough space for stuff for a couple of breakfasts, with an electric hot plate you can put the frying pan on served perfectly for cooking bacon, steak etc. We took a plug in cool box that did the trick keeping the evening drinks cool . A table and two stools along with an electric heater, wood burning stove and WiFi completed the compact interior. Outdoor picnic bench and bbq for alfresco dining, with supermarkets only a 5 minute drive away we were never short of anything we needed. The owners were very friendly and made us feel very welcome, and added touches when we arrived were very much appreciated. They left us to our own devises but we're on hand had we needed them, which we didn't. All in all we had a perfect break away, just what we needed, with lovely sunsets, birds and wildlife in abundance, peace and quiet. Perfect. We would not hesitate to recommend this location to anyone wanting a quiet break away. Using it as a base to travel out each day to the many lovely places to visit or just to enjoy the tranquility of its setting. We will most certainly be returning to here in the future. Thanks again for lovely stay

The property

Bude 2.2 miles.

Tucked away in the Cornish countryside in the quaint village of Bush near Bude is Westering Sun.

This idyllic shepherd’s hut benefits from a spacious lawn, open-plan, studio-style living space and a tranquil, rural location ideal for couples seeking a romantic retreat to escape the hustle and bustle of city life.

Park in the off-road parking space before crossing the threshold into your home-from-home, rustle up a dinner in the kitchen with a hot plate, kettle and toaster or indulge in a spot of alfresco dining outside.

Fire up the charcoal barbecue and toast your getaway with a glass of fizz while the sun sets of the luscious rolling fields in front of you.

When yawning begins, wash off the day’s adventure in the shower room before retiring for some much-needed rest in the double bed.

Westering Sun lies near pubs including The Tree Inn, The Kings Arms and The Preston Gate Inn where you can treat your loved one to a delicious meal or evening drinks on date night.

The hut is also a short drive from the popular coastal town of Bude where you can stock up on necessities at the supermarket or spend a sunny day at Summerleaze Beach and Crooklets Beach which is perfect for surfing and watersports, there is also Bude Sea Pool which is ideal for those seeking a refreshing swim.

About the location

BUDE

Tintagel 17 miles.

Bude is a fabulous coastal town that once visited you will want to come back to time and time again. Bude has something for everyone, great beaches for relaxing, and building sandcastles on, rockpools for investigating at low tide and cafes to watch it all from. The rolling waves are great for surfing all year round, and the footpaths by the restored canal or on the North Cornwall coastal path offer you a superb opportunity to explore and appreciate the outstanding countryside. Bude also has a superb golf course, indoor swimming pool, bowling alley/indoor play area and Heritage Centre at Bude Castle. It also has a good selection of local shops, supermarkets, cafes, pubs, restaurants and excellent Information Centre. Within a short drive are the remains of a huge iron age hill fort at Warbstow Bury, from where panoramic views can be seen. For days out, take the coast road north to see the lonely lighthouse above the sea at Hartland Point or walk or ride a donkey down the steep and cobbled village street (no cars allowed) of beautiful Clovelly to the harbour and the pub far below. Follow the coast in the other direction and there's the little cove of Crackington Haven, Boscastle, King Arthur's castle at Tintagel, Doc Martin's Port Wenn at Port Isaac and yet more great surfing beaches at Polzeath.
