Property Details

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. Perfect for two adults. 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.
