Relax in beautifully wild surroundings in our cosy and comfortable Shepherd Huts. Our place is the ideal glamping experience for couples seeking a romantic escape, or solo adventurers and nature explorers who would like some home comforts too.

Explore all the delights Somerset has to offer, including stunning scenery and rare wildlife right on your doorstep. Visit cider distilleries to test our local scrumpy or rent a canoe to explore the Somerset Levels (not recommended at the same time!)

The space
In the morning, you'll open your door to a magical environment between two ponds, rolling fields, a nature garden and a magnificent arboretum. Our Shepherd Huts are larger than usual as we have joined them by a wooden deck and garden area where you can sit and enjoy the sunset. At night, you’ll be able to look up and gaze at stars as far as the eye can see.

The huts are warm and cosy, with traditional sheeps wool lined walls and underfloor heating to keep your toes toasty. In one hut is a large luxurious bed, with comfortable bedding, and a sofa to put your feet up. The second hut has a bathroom and small kitchen, with a microwave, kettle and a sink for washing up. The bathroom has a luxury shower, with a large showerhead. Perfect to relax, warm-up and get clean after a muddy walk around Somerset.

Breakfast includes simple bits and bobs to tide you over, including granola and milk, bread, butter and jam. We also have a café on our farm - Farm and Field Café open Wednesday to Sunday, (due to the pandemic please check opening times, currently serving takeaways Thursday to Sunday only) serving amazing breakfasts, loaded sandwiches, salads, burgers, curries, pizzas along with seasonal specials (menus vary from day to day) with scrumptious cakes for dessert and a range of teas and coffees, soft and alcoholic drinks. There is also a bookable takeaway service on certain evenings. Guests staying in our Shepherd Huts will be given a discount voucher to use each time they visit the café!

Also on our Farm we have The White Barn, a brand new wedding and events venue as well as a Frogmary Flowers which works perfectly alongside the café and White Barn.

Apologies our Shepherd Huts are unsuitable for pets.

Our Farm and Field Cafe serves amazing homegrown and locally sourced fresh food from breakfasts to brunches and lunches as well as a scrumptious selection of homemade cakes, brownies and flapjack. Drinks include teas, coffees, a marvelous selection of soft drinks and wines, beers and cider.

If you fancy a day on foot, there are numerous walks and nature trails right on our doorstep, including walkable access to the local town of South Petherton, just one mile away, our lovely local town with a little coop supermarket, pharmacy, public house, butchers, bakers, wine shop and a few other little independent shops. Ten minutes in the other direction is the Lopen Raj, an Indian restaurant and takeaway also serving a selection of Thai and Chinese food. Across the road from the Lopen Raj, is the unique Trading Post Deli and Farm Shop with Pip’s Railway Carriage Café, featuring a refurbished train carriage and double-decker bus with splendid views of their garden where they grow food for your plate.

We are also surrounded by National Trust properties, including Montacute House, Barrington Court, and Tintinhull Gardens. Further afield, you can easily reach Cheddar Gorge, Wookey Hole, and even Stonehenge.

For nature lovers, bring your bikes and cycle along the nearby River Parrett on the beautiful Somerset Levels. Take a tour on the Duchess of Cocklemoor, a local restored timber ferry to rent out of Langport.

If arts and culture are your cup of tea, why not visit Ilminster’s Art Centre for an exhibition or Yandles Woodworking and Craft Centre in Martock.

Discover something new with Shakespear’s Glass Blowing courses in Langport, or try your hand at pottery with Barrington pottery classes. Living locally is the world famous potter, Johnny Leach and his fascinating workshop and gallery in Muchelney. We are also near to the Fleet Air Arm Museum. Haynes International Motor Museum and Street Shoe Museum. Clark's Village in nearby Street is perfect for a day of shopping.

We are also 20 miles from the beautiful Jurassic Coast with stunning clifftop walks and the picturesque seaside town of Lyme Regis. Plus the Blackdown Hills, Quantocks and Exmoor National Park are all within an hours drive.

If you fancy a day trip somewhere more urban, both Bristol and Bath are nearby.
