The Hut is situated in Carne Village, just west of Nare Head with beautiful views across Gerrans Bay and is only a short walk from Carne Beach which, at low tide, extends a mile west and includes Pendower Beach stretching most of the way to Portscatho. This stunning cliff top property is a 10 minute walk down to the beach and is a short drive away from Veryan with its historic roundhouses and the quaint fishing village of Portloe. The Roseland peninsula is famous for some of the finest stretches of coastline in the country with sandy beaches, secluded bays and majestic promontories - all of which can be viewed from, or walked to, from the Hut!
The Hut is set in a mature, well-tended, garden in a beautiful, quiet, corner of the Roseland. A pine clad rustic feel is matched by a homely interior with a multi fuel stove to warm up those wind swept winter nights. The garden has a sun trap of a patio to the south with wooden garden furniture and we cannot imagine many nicer places for a barbecue, a spot of Al fresco dining or simply chatting over a glass of wine. There is a well equipped kitchen, two good sized bedrooms and a bunk room.

The Roseland Peninsula is an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and forms one of the finest sections of Cornwall's South Coast. From Mevagissey to St Mawes and bordered by the Fal Estuary to the west, the Roseland Peninsula has been drawing visitors for years with its splendid coastline, unique gardens, historic villages and superb sailing waters. A truly magnificent part of Cornwall, the Roseland Peninsula is a wonderful place to spend a memorable holiday. With The Lost Gardens of Heligan and The Eden Project in one direction and Falmouth and the National Maritime Museum in the other the Roseland is brimming with places to visit and things to do.
St Mawes Castle, built by Henry VIII in the 16th century sits on Castle Point at the mouth of the River Fal. At the top of St Mawes, Lamorran Gardens house a wonderful collection of tropical plants with lovely views down into the Harbour. St Just-in-Roseland has arguably the most photographed church in Cornwall. The 13th century church sits quietly tucked away on the edge of the creek. The Veryan Roundhouses are a must see, on the way to Nare Head, where you will find the most spectacular views of Gerrans Bay. The little village of Portloe nestles in lovely valley and is one of Cornwall's quintessential spots. Portscatho has a number of art galleries and many artists find the light in this harbour village inspires much of their work. The Roseland Inn at Philleigh is a 16th century pub just waiting for you to visit, as is the newly refurbished Smugglers Cottage at Tolverne, perfect for that afternoon Cornish Cream Tea, now run by Tregothnan Estate home to the UK's first tea plantation. The most popular thing to do though on the Roseland is simply to walk and enjoy some of Cornwall's most beautiful coastline.
Events on the Roseland reach fever point in August when sailing regattas, carnivals, fayres and fun days take place all over the Roseland and the waters of the Carrick Roads. It is a memorable place for many people who return year after year to enjoy the magic of this beautiful place.
Portscatho and its neighbouring village of Gerrans are located on the eastern coast of the Roseland Peninsula, Cornwall, overlooking the dramatic Gerrans Bay. A truly peaceful waterside village, Portscatho is a lovely place for a holiday. There are miles of coastal and countryside footpaths to explore, particularly along past Towan beach and out to St Anthony's Head. Portscatho was once a busy fishing harbour, but now it has become a haven for artists due to the striking light which is particularly good in the morning sun. More than anything, Portscatho is a relaxing place. The beaches such as Porthcurnick, Towan and Porthbeor are simply idyllic and these are only minutes from the village. With a superb local butchers shop, 2 great little pubs and a well stocked local store, Portscatho and Gerrans are a lovely place to spend a holiday.
Guest from Ross-on-Wye stayed for 7 nights.
Beautiful location and although some of the furnishings were dated it was clean and comfortable. I would ditch the coloured fitted sheets for white and put a double duvet and cover on the double bed rather than two singles which was odd. We used the wood burner and there was a good wood store so this was a bonus. We would happily recommend The Hut especially if you have dogs. There were nice walks on the doorstep and the gardens are quite lovely. Overall a really good place to stay and we hope to return one day. However, it is fairly isolated which we loved so don't expect to be able to walk to a local shop, arrange a delivery instead to keep you going. Finally the people looking after the property were great and responded to our call very quickly when we required more bed linen. Loved 'The Hut'.
Guest from Tubbergen stayed for 14 nights.

The house was clean.. No complaints and we can recommend this house, Henk and Astrid, the Netherlands
Guest from Southwold stayed for 7 nights.
We enjoyed our stay at this quirky house. Whilst it was extremely comfortable there were a few things that we felt needed some attention; I.e carpets were quite dirty and needed cleaning and the bathroom smelt very damp. Having said this the Hut was very well equipped and apart from not having a dishwasher which was not a problem to us at all as washing up was a pleasure with the view from the kitchen window. Due to the inclement Cornish weather we feel a tumble dryer would be a most welcome addition. The main attraction was the stunning gardens and location which was very relaxing.
Guest from Hereford stayed for 14 nights.
We have been taking our annual holiday in Cornwall cottages for more than 30 years and The Hut is by far the best we have stayed at. Some would say rather basic looking and quirky on the outside. Don't be fooled! This is a very well appointed and maintained property a real home from home, you will want for nothing ! The gardens are mature and expansive, and well tended with lots of little glades among the trees (Loved the Scots Pines being a Scot ) The sea views are spectacular (only obscured slightly by one tree in the neighbouring property) The Roseland is a fairly quiet part of Cornwall, however you are never more than a half hour drive from a town or larger village. There is a multitude of interesting places to visit. The St Mawes - Falmouth trip on the ferry makes a great day out. Mellinsey Mill is a must for tea and cakes!! We arrived on Saturday in a heavy sea mist, then were blessed with 2 weeks of brilliant sunshine and left on Saturday in a sea mist !! Highly recommend this property !!! We will book again in the future!
Guest from Westbury stayed for 7 nights.
The Hut is a very well maintained property where the website photographs do full justice to the accommodation. There are superb views across Gerrans Bay from the property, and outside seating from which to enjoy the views. Unfortunately, the prevailing west wind blows directly into the property which sits on an exposed headland and prevents one from enjoying the view for more than a few minutes before getting frostbite! Internally, The Hut is well equipped and comfortable with all fixtures and fittings in very good state of repair. The only slight grumble would be the absence of a dishwasher and tumble dryer. Likewise, some ongoing nearby building works caused minor disruption with builders' vehicles occasionally blocking access to the Hut and a local footpath to the beach, while the builders' litter was an unwelcome blot on an otherwise beautiful location. It should also be noted that the local access roads are narrow and that some roads shown on the map are little more than cart tracks!
Guest from Newton Abbot stayed for 7 nights.
We had a most amazing time at the Hut. The location was excellent, very quiet area and not overlooked at all. Lovely well looked after garden, which surround the house. A beautiful view from the house and even better from the bottom of the garden. A short walk down a steep field and across another flat one to Carne beach which was very quiet (in May) and dog friendly. our dogs loved it, as did they the long coastal walks from the doorstep. The nearest pub is just over a mile away in Veryan. You can walk across the fields and country lanes. Good food and atmosphere. We loved it so much we are going to book it up again. I would recommend to anyone who likes the outdoors and walking.
Guest from Buckingham stayed for 7 nights.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at The Hut. It was clean, tidy, with efficient heaters which were useful in the evenings. The beds were comfortable and bed linen and towels were good quality. Just a couple of things to note, the directions were slightly misleading but luckily we knew the area and roughly where we were going. Also, the bin in the kitchen was very small, not ideal for a family of 6. There were no extra bin bags available so couldn't change it. There were no instructions about whether to put the rubbish out for the dustman, and the dustbin provided was already full from the previous occupants. Rather smelly too. Only a minor detail I know, but something to be addressed. We plan to book again for another week next year, and look forward to returning. We would recommend this property for a quiet relaxing break.
Guest from Redhill stayed for 7 nights.
The Hut was a lovely place to stay, so peaceful & quiet & in such a beautiful location. It had everything that you could need for a comfortable stay & we had a lovely week. It was an ideal place to take the dogs with lots of lovely walks & a gorgeous nearby beach. The local area has lots of pubs & places to eat for some delicious meals out! We have already recommended the property to our neighbours who have a dog & love Cornwall as much as us.
Guest from Worcester stayed for 7 nights.
We arrived at The Hut not knowing what to expect. We were not disappointed. The view from the property was superb, especially the view to Portscatho which was idyllic in the setting sun. The accommodation met all our needs and was more than spacious enough to accommodate six people, two of which were boisterous under 6s. The property was well appointed with more than enough equipment for our week long stay. The caretakers left us a lovely bottle of wine and biscuits to set our holiday off to a good start. The weather was superb during our stay over the Christmas break. We enjoyed lovely walks down to the beach and across to Nare Head where we found the old decoy bunker and sheep that obviously did not have a fear of heights and seemed to be stuck to the cliff sides like glue. Our dog had a new lease of life on the beach, acting more like a puppy than the 13 year old that he is. Spent time visiting old haunts such as Falmouth, my grandparents home town, via the St Mawes Ferry, a lovely way to see Falmouth and St Mawes from a different angle and the numerous ships in the docks. On our last evening we were treated to more than a dozen dolphins swimming the in the bay below, spectacular. We will certainly look forward to another visit in the future.
Guest from Colebrooke stayed for 7 nights.
The Hut provides the most gorgeous place from which to enjoy the Roseland Peninsula. A superb house.
Guest from Uffculme stayed for 14 nights.
Beautiful location. Quirky bungalow would not suit everyone but we loved it. Beautifully appointed property.
Guest from Swindon stayed for 7 nights.
We all found The Hut a beautiful place to stay, the garden is delightful but the fencing may need looking at as one of my dogs kept escaping into the neighbouring field. The views are exceptional, especially when the sun is shining. The Hut itself has everything you need for a home from home. We did spend a long time though trying to play the video player only to discover that it didn't work and there was a built in one on the television (maybe the broken one needs to be thrown away to avoid confusion)
Guest from Norwich stayed for 14 nights.
If you are looking for a quieter part of Cornwall, this is it! Great family accommodation. Well equipped kitchen, with fabulous view of the sea, so washing up was a joy. Lovely lounge, comfy settee's & cosy fire for the damp days. All the beds were comfortable. Absolutely loved the position, peace & quiet only hearing the sea, and a seat in the garden to enjoy the coast line whatever the weather. Just a 12-15 min walk to the large beach, always plenty of space. Coastal path on the doorstep to enjoy the breath taking scenery. Large garden also to enjoy. What's not to like! We loved everything about it and would definitely stay again.
Guest from South Croydon stayed for 7 nights.
What a tranquil, beautiful spot location. Sited above the bay with the sea view from the window and the glorious garden surrounding the property this is truly a peaceful place. If you are seeking a quiet corner, tranquillity, peace but with the ability to leave and be close to the many sites of Cornwall this is perfect. We and our three teenage boys had a fantastic time and the only complaint from three very demanding teenagers was the tv screen was too small! Seriously, this is a beautiful place and a lovely place to spend some quality time with the family.
Guest from Exeter stayed for 7 nights.
We have holidayed in Carne for the last 3 years and love the view out over Gerrans Bay. We have previously stayed at another cottage close by but The Hut beats that in terms of spaciousness, facilities and a better shower! A warm welcome was much appreciated and we have thoroughly enjoyed our stay. I would love to see the garden at The Hut in spring - must be beautiful with all the magnolias and rhododendrons. One small suggestion - there is a hawthorn bush partly blocking the view down to the garden to the sea, especially from the kitchen window - time to prune/ remove it?
Guest from Cannock stayed for 7 nights.
Excellent location right by the sea though the single country lanes were quite scary! Beautifully furnished and clean. Just needed to have slightly better weather to fully appreciate the extensive garden.
Guest from Tring stayed for 8 nights.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in The Hut. A fantastic location, with a sheltered garden and a view from the kitchen sink to make us want to wash up !
