The detail

This bespoke Shepherd's Hut with its own wood fired hot tub has been designed to give you the perfect glamping escape you sorely deserve. Nestled in a corner of a large garden along side the River Sheppey, the hut is equipped with all you need to enjoy a comfortable well deserved break including full kitchenette, en-suite shower room, WiFi, stove, and patio set.

Why not treat yourself to the new Drop, Dip & Sip package - a small fee allows you to arrive to a pre heated hot tub and a quality bottle of chilled Prosecco. Another worthwhile extra has to be Karen's (the owner) tasty home made one pot suppers, perfect for reheating over the fire-pit after a day out exploring the array of activities in this rather mystical part of Britain (Glastonbury is a short distance away).

Freshly laundered bedding and towels are provided along with all other basic necessities you would require to make your stay comfortable. In the summer there is often surplus vegetables and salad for you to enjoy from the magical garden tended to by the owners Karen and Dave.

Enjoy your breakfast in the sun sitting outside the Hut on the patio and feel free to BBQ (charcoal available on request) and dine next to the river or chill with a relaxing drink around the mesmerising fire pit in the evening. They even have garden games including boule, croquet, swing-ball, a golf net, and badminton.

Guests may bring their four legged friends (a fee does apply - max two well behaved medium sized dogs), please let owners know in advance. There is an adjacent dog exercising meadow to the hut and bed, bowls, towels and treats can be supplied if required.

The stunning Wells Cathedral and the gorgeous Bishop's Palace are just up the road, but you may also want to take a look at the many other local places of interest including: Glastonbury, Cheddar Gorge, Wookey Hole and Clarke's shopping village in Street. A great bus service runs from the end of the lane (two minute walk) with regular buses until late, great for those that fancy a tipple or two at any of the many superb pubs and dining establishments in either Wells or Glastonbury. You can even catch the bus to Bristol for a day out!

Fabulous and immaculate shepherd’s hut which was very well equipped with a pull down bed, lovely shower room and everything you could need including a kettle, small fridge and heaters etc. The best part was without doubt the hot tub which was wood fired and heated to a toasty 40 degrees which meant we could enjoy being outside even though the weather was a bit nippy. Especially appreciated arriving to a ready heated hot tub with a bottle of Prosecco waiting. Location excellent for Glastonbury and Wells. Really enjoyed our 2 day stay and felt very welcomed by hosts Dave and Karen with cake on arrival.
