Tamar Hut is a beautifully crafted shepherds hut for a couple or small family, which offers a gorgeous glamping escape with a view…and what a view!  Situated within prestigious and historic Mount Edgcumbe Country Park in Cornwall, this handsome hut sits on the Rame peninsular overlooking flourishing countryside, Plymouth Docks and the sea. This beautiful location is simply stunning and presents guests with one of the very best views around.

Guests will have so many activities to choose from at this 18th-century, 855-acre country park, which sits snugly around the red brick Tudor stately home.  Discover the 1200 BC Bronze Age burial mound that shelters the hut from the wind, a fallow deer park whose inhabitants were donated by Henry VIII,  magnificent walks around the parks' extensive formal gardens and the 9-mile coastal path which leads you to the beautiful naval ports of Kingsand and Cawsand. The park surrounding Tamar Hut is full to the brim with spectacular views, layers of historical fascination, and experiences that will stay with you forever.

In Tamar Hut and its sister hut, Lynher, the park has provided equally impressive accommodation - named after the two converging rivers which flow into the Plymouth Sound below.  This elegant, bespoke English Oak hut has a distinctive 1950's theme, invoking memories of bucolic childhood holidays and simpler times before technology.  With a double fold-out bed and two single bunks, wood-burner and moveable kitchen pod, as well as plenty of outdoor space, you'll sit in you're own natural oasis, with magical views over the city and harbour lights in the distance.  This hut sits confidently in its surroundings, allowing you to enjoy a memory-making staycation in Cornwall's best-kept glamping secret.

Tamar Hut sleeps four people comfortably on its fold-out double bed which, when upright, reveals a table and benches, and two single bunks on the other side of the hut are laden with woollen throws and plump pillows for a snug sleep.

For cooler evenings in Tamar, there's a small wood-burning stove with a provision of logs and fire-making kit, as well as candles and candle holders for a little ambience lighting.  The hut has solar supply, meaning that there is switch lighting and a small USB charge point for phones and tablets - a little modern luxury in this otherwise 1950's inspired space.  There's even a torch for evening walks.

There's a portable kitchen at the side of the hut which allows a preparation space for burgers or breakfasts.  If you feel that life's too short for your infamous burnt bacon butty, then why not take advantage of Mount Edgcumbe's two cafes for delicious treats, from breakfasts to cream teas to hearty Cornish meals, and leave the washing up to someone else?  After all, you are on holiday…

Around 150 metres from the huts is the bathroom block, which houses a key-coded private hot water shower, toilets and wash basins.  

Mount Edgcumbe Country Park is in south-east Cornwall, around a 50-minute drive from Plymouth harbour.  However, thanks to the Cremyll Ferry, guests can easily access downtown Plymouth in just under ten minutes from Tamar Hut, crossing the border from Cornwall to Devon. This is one of the most ancient continual ferry routes in Britain, dating from the 11th century and run by the Edgcumbe family for over 400 years. 

Mount Edgcumbe sits right on the Cornish border with Devon, and was actually once part of Devon, but was handed back to the county some decades ago.  From the park, you have spectacular views over Drake's Island, Devil's point, Mount Batten, and the hills of Dartmoor in the distance.
