Luxury self-contained shepherd's hut on the Somerset/Devon border. Situated in the peaceful rural countryside with beautiful views across the rolling hills. Our spacious hut is set in it's own secluded garden space with patio area and firepit. Ideally placed for visiting the Quantocks, Exmoor and the Blackdown Hills, it is also close to a good range of shops in the nearby market town of Wiveliscombe. A highly recommended pub is within walking distance.

The space
The hut is brand new for 2020 and contains all you need for a relaxing stay. It has an en-suite shower and toilet with all toiletries and luxury Egyptian cotton towels provided. The kitchen area is well equipped including a double induction hob, microwave, fridge, toaster, kettle and cafetiere. A welcome pack of tea, fresh and instant coffee, sugar, milk, butter, home-made jam and marmalade, bread and eggs from our own chickens will be provided.
The double bed has a super comfy mattress and plenty of extra legroom. Sitting up in bed gives panoramic views over the surrounding countryside.
The living space contains a table and stools and a loveseat, as well as an electric stove for those cooler evenings.
A selection of games and books are provided.
Outside the hut is a Bistro table and chairs and firepit for Al Fresco dining.
Parking is beside the hut and you have your own private access to and from Shepherd's View hut.
The area is full of wildlife. Over 45 different species of birds have been seen in and around the garden. The adjoining field is regularly visited by roe deer.

Guest access
Guests will have their own private space with patio seating area next to a delightful flower bed.

Other things to note
Wi-fi is available and there is an excellent mobile signal at the hut.
