2 Shepherds Huts sleeping 2 people each (add children in a tent if you wish to). Enjoy tennis, riding and a pool, near Looe. Plus house with seaviews for 2-6

Located in rural Cornwall, close to Looe, this working farm offers two traditional shepherd's huts sleeping 2 people with access to a seasonal swimming pool, riding school and tennis court. Plus a romantic off grid, cliff side Watch House with seaviews for 2-6 guests - without use of these facilities.

Set in the peaceful village of Duloe, close to Liskeard, this is a great place to relax and recharge your batteries. If you fancy a stroll, then the local pub is only a 25 minute walk away and on the way you can enjoy the stunning views over the Cornish valleys. Make sure you stop and admire the miniature Stonehenge stone circle in the village which has been there since the bronze age! If you fancy a little excitement then be sure to head to Adrenalin Quarry where you can zip wire across an old flooded quarry or if you would rather relax further then head to Polpero harbour and watch the boats come in.

Back at the farm, you can stay in one of two eco-friendly shepherds huts. Both have a private bathroom, wood burning stove and luxury double bed and are placed about half a mile apart. With a gas ring cooker, outdoor firepit and all utensils you would need, you can cook up a storm and enjoy eating al fresco whilst admiring the views. There is a wind-up radio, wind-up torch and solar powered electricity for lighting and charging your phone. However if you wish to avoid technology then a shelf full of books and a pack of cards is there for your enjoyment. The bathroom hut has a shower and toilet and toiletries are provided.

The 19th Century Watch House is in a different location to the Shepherds Hut's and can be found cliff side with incredible views over the ocean. It can sleep up to 6 people with a double bed and 4 bunks but is also perfect for a romantic getaway for 2 people. It has a quirky interior design and as it is off grid, then the kitchen facilities are gas-powered. There are candles available to light your way once the sun has set and the warm glow of the log burner will keep the house cosy. There are no parking facilities so you have to park and walk the 20 minutes to get to the house in its secluded location. This property does not have access to the pool, tennis courts or riding school.
