Award winning romantic luxury glamping in a cosy Shepherd’s Hut with a wood-fired hot tub, hidden away in a peaceful & private Somerset orchard of your own, with stunning panoramic views, sunsets & starry skies. Fully heated with a comfy raised double bed, compact kitchen, ensuite bathroom & 2 pubs within walking distance, makes for the perfect idyllic glamping retreat to enjoy some well deserved rest & relaxation in an unspoilt corner of Somerset. Min age 21, no pets or smoking allowed.

The space
Clever design packs a lot of features into a modest space!

Our hut has a calm, relaxing feel, and is a great space to chill out in. And outside you'll find a wood-fired hot-tub, fire pit, BBQ and garden furniture to recline in, lay back and do a spot of sun worshipping, star gazing, fire stoking and al fresco soaking. And the plentiful supply of blankets will help to extend your evening keeping you cosy enjoying the view!

It's fully heated with an electric wall heater & towel rail and very well insulated (with sheep's wool) so you'll feel cosy whatever the weather outside.

The comfy raised double bed is 4 feet (1.2m) high and is accessed from one side only using 2 steps.

There are a couple of folding chairs and a pull-out table.

The kitchen has all you need to cater for yourselves with a combination microwave oven, hob, fridge, sink and a small selection of pots & pans, utensils and crockery along with some basic supplies of S&P and oils.

The modern bathroom has an electric shower, wash hand basin, heated towel rail and loo and a supply of organic toiletries for you to use.

Guests have sole use of a wood-fired hot tub, outside table and chairs, BBQ, fire pit, and a supply of logs. Additional logs can be purchased at £10 a wheel barrow load. Please note, the hot tub is log fired and will therefore take time to heat. It takes approximately 2 hours to bring up to temperature and requires regular stoking - every 20/30 minutes. If you would like the hot tub heated and ready for you on arrival there is £20 charge payable locally on arrival.

We'll provide you with supplies of milk, tea, coffee and hot chocolate.

All bedding and towels are supplied.

Adults only with minimum age 21.

No pets allowed.

We do not allow any smoking either inside or outside the hut. A cleaning fee of £100 will be charged if ignored.

Guest access
There is a table and chairs outside, and the hut’s steps function as a seat with a view! You are welcome to walk or sit in the orchard area.

Other things to note
Due to the steps and the raised bed, the Hut is not suitable for people with restricted mobility.

We do not allow any smoking either inside or outside the hut. A cleaning fee of £100 will be charged if you ignore this request.

No pets or children allowed.

The roads are very narrow coming into the village with no road markings and some blind corners so please take care and drive slowly.

Nestled in a small Somerset village and surrounded by farmland, there are many gentle walks and cycles you can do from the doorstep - we are on National Cycle Network Route 3. The area has many National Trust properties and gardens (Barrington Court is a short walk over the hill!) and pretty Market Towns.

Stocklinch itself is lovely and pretty quiet, with a micro-brewery/pub (open Friday evenings and Sunday lunchtime), a plant nursery, and a church.
