The detail

A stone's throw from the charming and idyllic village of Compton Bishop, Peak Barn Shepherds Hut is a quaint and pleasing tinyhome-style self-catering hut, with extraordinary views of the rolling hills which the area is famous for. Located just below the Crook Peak National Trust area, Peak Barn Shepherds Hut is the perfect property for couples or individual travellers looking to spend time in some of the most stunning and untouched natural vistas in England, without having to compromise on proximity to amenities.

Everything about this home has been cleverly designed and built to create a sense of comfort and joy, with an emphasis on the rural aesthetic, and views which speak for themselves. It is the perfect space to come with a partner, and enjoy the simple, classic experiences in life, like enjoying a home cooked meal together, and a stroll through the wildflowers as you watch the sun set over the verdant hills opposite. You have all of the amenities you could possibly need right in the space, and the towns and villages offer a range of diverting experiences and opportunities.

Whatever your idea of the perfect holiday is, you're bound to have a truly unforgettable time staying at Peak Barn Shepherds Hut. Start each day by strolling down the road to the honesty system cart, where you can pick up your eggs for breakfast, and locally grown organic vegetables. Enjoy your cup of coffee gazing out over an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty as you plan your day's activities. After a lengthy hike, or a gentler morning spent pottering around Compton Bishop, head to one of the excellent gastropubs found under a mile away, and enjoy a pint of local ale with a fantastic meal in a great atmosphere. Spend your evenings cooking a romantic meal for two in the well-appointed kitchen, using fresh locally sourced ingredients, and enjoy it together either inside or sat on the private patio, by the firepit.

Mendip Hills remains an unspoiled Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, attracting visitors from far and wide with its wooded hills, pretty topography, and distinctive rural charm. While you're far removed from the bustle and stress of urban activity, guests staying at Peak Barn Shepherds Hut are less than a mile from the pub, and 2.5 miles from Axbridge, The larger settlement of Cheddar is also close by, with its historic architecture and charming independent shops, and the ancient town of Bath is also day-tripping distance away, popular with history enthusiasts, shoppers, foodies and cultural tourists alike.

We had a wonderful time at Peak Barn the host Martine was most accommodating, nothing was too much. The shepherds hut was absolutely beautiful just the kind of retreat to chill and recharge your batteries. It was very nice to arrive at the hut to find lovely fresh picked flowers and fruit from their garden. The views from the hut were amazing with a lovely patio and garden area where you can sit and enjoy a glass of wine which we did each evening, a big 'Thank You' to Martine and her husband for making us feel very at home, will return.

Such lovely hosts! The Shepherds hut was immaculate. We loved sitting on the patio and soaking up the amazing views. Beautiful walks right from the backyard, including a trip to Cheddar Gorge. We were beyond impressed with the hosts piano studio and beautiful flower garden. Would highly recommend to anyone looking for a unique countryside getaway! We would love to stay again.

This was such a perfect little getaway for our anniversary and Martine was nothing but accommodating. This could not have been in a more perfect location too, just a stones throw away from Cheddar, about 30mins from Glastonbury and even Weston-super-Mare, you really are spoilt for choice when it comes to days out . The views you get from the hut are stunning and even when it rains the sound is so calming. Thank you for hosting us and we would love to come back soon.

We stayed at the shepherds hut for two nights and were made to feel extremely welcomed by Martine. She was brilliant from the outset with local recommendations before we even arrived. The views from the hut are gorgeous and we had a very relaxing time! The location is also very good - only a short drive away from Cheddar Gorge. We will definitely return!

Arranged to stay here for 2 nights for my partners birthday with a surprise engagement. Martine and Guiseppe were both so helpful and accommodating to all my request even playing songs on the piano for the special night and cooking dinner! The views are amazing and only a short drive from some lovely places. We can’t wait to come back here again as our special place.
