Indoor heated swimming pool at Melody Farm Shepherds Huts

Melody Farm Shepherds Huts are nestled within the grounds of The Emerald, a luxury eco retreat set in five acres of beautiful grounds. A stay with us means you get to enjoy everything The Emerald has to offer. 

We’ve an indoor heated swimming pool, which our guests are welcome to use any time of day or night. The pool is heated using electricity we generate ourselves and is kept at a constant temperature of 32 degrees – wonderfully warm, even on a chilly winter’s day. Depending on your mood, you can change the lighting in the pool complex – enjoy a midnight swim in dark blue light or an early morning dip pepped up with pink lighting! With well appointed changing rooms and a cloakroom, and towels that we provide for poolside use, all you need to do is remember to pack your swimming costume!

For those wanting to keep on track with their physical activity regimes we’ve a small gym. Within the gym we’ve a couple of treadmills, a rowing machine, cross trainer, weights and boxing equipment.  All of this is complimented by a Bose sound system and widescreen television, so you can work out when you like to the soundtrack or programme of your choice. Just don’t forget your trainers!

We’ve also got a tennis court here in our grounds, which you are welcome to use, as well as table tennis, croquet and cricket nets. We’ve all the equipment you need to enjoy using whichever of these facilities you choose.

If you prefer to simply enjoy your surroundings our grounds have plenty to offer you. We've a meadow area, a large pond with gazebo looking over it, an orchard and secret pathways wandering through the trees. When we developed The Emerald we planted more native species so we could encourage more wildlife to our site. These compliment some of the more tropical planting people often expect of Cornish gardens, meaning our grounds are beautiful and enjoyable all year round.
