About the property

Secluded getaway for 2 near the fabulous St Kew Inn and 5 minutes drive from Port Isaac. Fully self-contained with log-burner.

The Beech Hut is in the centre of pretty St Kew village in a private garden where you can BBQ and laze on the ample decking or lunch in the garden listening to the stream flowing by.You can sample some of the best pub food in Cornwall 7 days a week at the Inn on your door step, along with traditional Cornish Ales. In the winter the log burner will keep you cosy (logs supplied) as will the Chimnea if you're eating al fresco on the deck. The garden is frequently visited by Barn and Tawny owls as well as a variety of other wild birds and colourful butterflies. During your stay it's easy to visit a different port or beach each day of the week as well as discovering excellent walking along the coastal path and on Bodmin Moor. Water skiing, kayaking, coasteering, sea fishing and surfing are available within less than a half hour drive. In under an hour you can take in the delights of the south coast by visiting Fowey, Looe, the Eden project and Heligan. Cyclists have a variety of off and on road routes to try out as well as mountain biking at Lanhydrock and Cardinham Woods. There are 18 miles of off road, level cycling on the Camel Trail including the popular Wadebridge to Padstow leg, lured by Rick Stein's fish and chips or posher grub. We can also share with you our own favourite routes to take in sea views or a wealth of indie cafés. Climbing enthusiasts will enjoy visiting Magic Wood as a great wet weather activity for both novices and the more experienced. If you're coming to relax, wind down and enjoy the beaches, Polzeath, Rock, Daymer Bay and Trebarwith Strand are just some of the many beautiful local options. The Beech hut is suitable for stays in all weather with covered decking for BBQ, DVD player, a collection of DVDs and books which you are invited to borrow or add to, and a log fire for chilly evenings. We will provide a local map and tide information to help you plan your days. Wifi is usually available but it is slow and not adequate for streaming. On arrival you'll find a welcome hamper with essentials to get you started in the kitchen and we love sharing our inside knowledge on tides, waves, places to go, things to do if this is your first time here. Babies can stay but please bring own cot. We can take in clothes washing for you during your stay. Bike washing available in the garden. Having your own transport is advisable due to the rural setting.

About Leonie Loreilhe

Our family has been living in St Kew for over 30 years, we feel fortunate to live in such a beautiful part of Cornwall.

Why Leonie Loreilhe chose Saint Kew

The house was known to our children when they were very young as it belonged to their grandparents. We decided to move to the family home so that they could grow up near the sea and be in the countryside. We love this place and all it has to offer whatever the seasons bring. We are just as happy taking a storm bathe as basking in the sunshine and love to walk and cycle in this magical spot.

Fantastic place.

  • 5 of 5

The Beech Hut is tucked away in a gorgeous place in North Cornwall. Leonie welcomed us with a wonderful lit wood burner and the smell of freshly baked bread.There was a small hamper full of essentials like coffee tea sugar etc. Very thoughtful .

The Hut is fully equipped with everything you need to enjoy your holiday.

The Hut is so cosy you really don't want to leave, but you must explore the area. Cornwall is so diverse, the people are so friendly.

We would recommend this property to stay. But we won't be telling too many people incase we can't get the weeks we want to stay here !

A gorgeous beech hut in an amazing location, a perfect getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was incredible, we couldn't have wished for more. The beech hut is great, full of character and a great romantic hideaway in the beautiful village of St.Kew. Leonie was such a welcoming host who truly helped us feel at home and the welcome hamper on arrival was a really nice extra. This hut is in a great location, hidden away from the major towns but still easily commutable to the main attractions. During our stay we visited the Eden project, Port Issac and Tintagel castle, all of which were easy to get to. I couldn't recommend this place more, we will definitely be back to visit the place where we got engaged!

Perfect cabin retreat

  • 5 of 5

We spent a few nights at the Beech Hut just after ‘the beast from the east’ snow had hit but didn’t notice the cold as the fantastic wood burner keep the place so warm and cosy. The bed is one of the most comfortable we’ve slept on. The kitchen is really well equipped with a few essentials provided which are a really nice touch. Overall, quality accommodation with thoughtful and friendly hosts. Would love to come back in warmer weather to enjoy the veranda and garden. Would also recommend the friendly pub across the road for food.

Cute, cozy, private and perfect cabin for couples who want to get away from it all!

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing experience at the Beech Hut! Upon arrival we were welcomed by Leonie who baked us a fresh loaf of bread and had the fire on for us. Her and Rob were great hosts.

The cabin itself was just perfect. Everything you needed for a cozy night in to cook your own meal was there (cooking utensils, pots/pans, plates, hob etc). The bed was comfortable and the shower room had a decent amount of space. There’s also a book shelve full of fiction/non-fiction books as well as maps and books of Cornwall.

The overall atmosphere of the place was just lovely. It was exactly what my partner and I were looking for and we couldn’t recommend it enough. The gardens were beautiful as well as the seating area on the porch which was covered by an over hang in case of wet weather.

The village of St. Kew was very cute. Once you walk out of the cabin and several steps up to the high street the pub is just several meters away across the road. There’s a great farm shop just up on the main road and Port Isaac fishing village is only a 20 minute drive away. A picturesque, must-see village!

We can’t wait to return to The Beech Hut soon.

We enjoyed a lovely weekend. The pictures of the beech hut do not do the place enough justice as it was even better than we expected :) it looks beautiful in the pictures but even better in real life. Amazing hosts with attention to detail - a log fire burning on our arrival and a fresh warm loaf of bread and hamper with other goodies :). Highly recommend the pub opposite the st Kew inn - the food was amazing especially the Sunday roast! A lovely area and was perfect for our weekend away. We hope to return soon :)

Our week at The Beech Hut. Aug. 2017

  • 5 of 5

We loved our short stay at the beech Hut.The accommodation had everything needed to make an enjoyable visit to Cornwall. The beech Hut is so close to some of Cornwall's wonderful beaches and attractive towns and pretty villages.

Initially we had some reservations about the spiral staircase however once we had negotiated it a few times there was no problem at all.

The garden is a pure delight and with the stream running at the bottom of the garden makes it a real pleasurable place.

Although the weather could have been better it didn't deter us from getting out and visiting some of our favourite places.

Thank you Leonie and Rob for making our short stay a comfortable and enjoyable experience.

Peter and Marie

Car: recommended


The local beaches are perfect for surfing or relaxing, they include:

Polzeath; Daymer bay; Trebarwith Strand as well as many smaller coves and bays for discovering. Rock is popular for those wanting a quieter time or for water skiing and sailing.

The Beech Hut is close to the ports of Port Isaac and Padstow.


Port Isaac is just over 5 minutes drive away and Wadebridge, the local town, has large supermarkets, banks as well as many independent shops, pubs and cafes, it can be reached within a 10 minute drive. It is also the hub for the Camel trail, 18 miles of nearly flat, off-road cycling. Bikes of any ilk can be hired for the day or half day.

Further Details:

North Cornwall has become known for it's fine local and gastro food. There are 2 Michelin star fish restaurants in Port Isaac as well as excellent Cornish pub food and ales at the St Kew Inn. We advise you to book in advance for the St Kew Inn in the high season. Padstow is home to the many Rick Stein eateries and Jamie Oliver's Fifteen restaurant is at Watergate bay near Newquay.
