On a typical sunny evening, guests of Frizparc Shepherd’s hut are found relaxing on the hut veranda with a cool beer. As the sun sets, guests can toast their toes around the fire pit or snuggle up inside the hut. This is only the second year of welcoming visitors to the Shepherd’s Hut where the owners have endeavoured to provide as many modern comforts as possible while keeping in touch with the rustic charm of glamping in glorious Cornish countryside.
The hut is found just 20 minutes from the stunning North Cornish coast, Dartmoor, and not many more to the granite tors and leafy valleys of Bodmin Moor. A perfect place from which to explore the beautiful Tamar Valley and discover some of Cornwall and Devon’s lesser-known rural gems. There is only the hut as accommodation and so for the duration of a stay here, guests will have Frizparc to themselves.
Frizparc Shepherds Hut sleeps two and the minimum stay is two nights. The hut is dog friendly so long as the dog is well behaved and hut friendly. There is safe parking and the owners greet all guests on arrival and introduce them to the hut. Guests can enjoy amazing big sky views, magical sunrises, and peaceful evenings. Whilst having breakfast on the veranda of the hut, guests can watch the sun come up over the distant Dartmoor hills.
Inside the Hut, there is a comfortable fixed double bed with duvet and pillows and some extra fleeces just in case of chilly evenings. Fresh bed linen is provided. There is a table for two at the window with the best view for miles around. There will be a few books and games to while away the time and maps to plan walks and excursions.
There is a cosy wood burning Typhon stove in the hut, which has a hob and a small oven. Kindling, firelighters, and enough logs for your stay are supplied free of charge. All the cooking pots and pans you could ever need are there for you to use including crockery and cutlery and tea towels. There is a gas fridge with plenty of space for some famous Rodda’s Cornish clotted cream or some of the well-known locally brewed Cornish Ales. Safety is a priority here, so the stove has been fitted to HETAS standards by a qualified fitter. A Carbon Monoxide alarm is fitted and there is a fire safety blanket and fire extinguisher in the Hut.
Some of those essential items that hardly seem worth packing for yourself are provided such as cooking oil, table condiments, stock cubes, Cornish Smuggler’s tea, instant coffee, sugar, and washing up liquid etc.
There is also a BBQ/Fire pit with charcoal supplied free of charge. There is no mains electricity supply at Frizparc but there are solar photovoltaic panels fitted to the roof of the Pens to provide lights in both buildings. There are no power sockets available so there is no TV, but in case guests want to catch up with the world there is a small wind up radio and torch for you to use. Most mobile phone networks receive signal at Frizparc. A USB mobile phone charge point is available in the hut.
Close to the Hut there is the “Pens” housing the washing and composting toilet facilities with a shower room, a separate wash-up room for hanging coats and store boots. There is a mains water supply to Frizparc and the solar thermal system heats the water with a gas back-up boiler ensuring lots of hot water.
The village Shop and is only 5 minutes walk and guests should bring walking boots, wellington boots, and waterproofs in case it rains. Frizparc is seven miles from the ancient town of Launceston known as the Gateway to Cornwall, easily accessed from the A30 and just across the border from Devon. A beautiful, historic market town, surrounded by rolling countryside, Launceston is the perfect place to stay and explore all of Cornwall as well as north and west Devon.
