Price per night: From £148 for 2 people
Location: Wookey, Wells
Why stay here: I mean, the bath alone is enough to warrant a stay here. The photo above really does speak for itself! The striking circular bathroom houses a massive stone tub, large enough to fit two, making Vilberie Cabin one of the most unusual romantic weekend breaks in the UK. However, the curved cabin itself is no less an amazing space. It’s kitted out with a bedroom, living room and kitchen, and a few touches of extra indulgences such as a kingsize bed and a Nespresso machine. And if that wasn’t enough, the cabin is set in a beautiful arboretum that was once a cider orchard. It’s the perfect spot to spend a few wonderfully relaxing days.
Price per night: From £205 for 2 people
Location: Wookey, Wells
Why stay here: Set on the same orchard as Vilberie Cabin, Dabinett Treehouse is something seriously special. From the sumptuous king-size bed to the sofa by the wood burner to the incredible bathtub out on the deck, there is so much to discover here. Similar to Vilberie Cabin, the star attraction of the treehouse is, of course, the outdoor hot tub. Whether you relax in it in the morning with a coffee from the Nespresso machine, or in the evening with a bottle of wine from the neighbouring vineyard, you’re guaranteed a relaxing stay here.
What guests say: “Dabinett Treehouse and Fenny Orchard was wonderful. All the details had been thought of, the log burner prepared, milk and butter, local treats in a basket. Lovely toiletries and fluffy towels. The view was wonderful and the treehouse itself was thoughtfully decorated so snug and flawlessly clean! The orchard itself was secure peaceful and private.”
Price per night: From £145 for 2 people
Location: Chard, Somerset
Why stay here: Set on a small 30-acre historic farm on the Blackdown Hills, Dimpsey Shepherds Huts are easily one of my favourite places to go glamping in Somerset. Guaranteeing a private, intimate stay, each hut sits in its own field with stunning views. (These amazing views are, of course, best enjoyed from the decadence of your outdoor wood-fired hot tub!) However, what makes Dimpsey so special is all the extra touches they add to make your stay a good one. From little flasks and enamel mugs to a vintage picnic basket filled with sandwiches and treats, any walks you embark on will definitely be memorable!
What guests say: “We had the most wonderful idyllic weekend at the Dimpsey Shepherd’s hut. Emma was an excellent host, greeting us even when we were late to arrive having baked us a cake and stocked the fridge with bacon and eggs ready for breakfast. Every detail has been thought about, with goodies to find in every corner such as board games for a rainy afternoon and waterproof bag with a thermos you can take on a picnic.”
Price per night: From £280 for 2 people
Location: Wincanton, Cucklington
Why stay here: The Cabin in Piggy Woods is just as cute as the name of the woods it inhabits. Whether you visit here in rain or shine, you’re guaranteed a good time, as the cabin is filled to the brim with amenities that will make your stay oh-so-cosy. The characterful cabin was custom made by owner Woody in a quiet corner of the woods, designed with modern comfort in mind. You’ll quickly find yourself rotating between the covered veranda and the big armchairs by the fire, while playing board games, reading books and sipping on your favourite tipple!
What guests say: “Inside, it felt like stepping into a stylish London cocktail club. You could spend hours just exploring the interiors and making your way through the shelves full of those books you wish you had on your own coffee table. With the roaring fire and comfy armchairs, it’s the perfect place to retreat and hunker down whatever the weather.”
Price per night: From £250 for 2 people
Location: North Brewham, Bruton
Why stay here: If you’re looking for one of the most luxurious glamping holidays in Somerset, then look no further than the Bower Treehouse. Everything at the Bower is organic, so you’ll feel even closer to nature here. From the bath salts, candles and woodland setting to the king-sized bed carved from stag oak, this treehouse is a real escape from modern life. The question isn’t ‘Do I stay here?’ but more ‘Do I head to the huge outdoor hot tub or to the firepit first?’.
What guests say: “First and foremost, The Bower Treehouse is where we just got engaged, so we will always treasure our stay there! It was full of thoughtful high-quality touches – good coffee, natural skincare, robes, fresh milk in the fridge. Felt like every need had been anticipated! Really respect and appreciate the eco values too.”
Price per night: From £197 for 2 people
Location: Fordscroft, Crewkerne
Why stay here: The Yurt Retreat Roundhouses have to be one of my favourite places to go glamping in Somerset. There are two roundhouses to choose from, The Nest and The Hide, and both are as luxurious as the other. But most importantly, both come complete with an outdoor bath, made with long evenings stargazing in mind. Inside, both roundhouses are beautifully decorated – seriously, they look like they could be a five-star hotel! And the luxury ensuite bathrooms benefit from underfloor heating, a clawfoot bath and a big, rain-head shower. And if that wasn’t enough, why not pay an added extra fee to use the woodland sauna? It’s the perfect addition to an already magical stay!
What guests say: “My wife and I spent two nights in a delayed midweek break at ‘the Hide’ yurt. It is, simply, one of the best ‘couples’ places we have stayed in. The setting is scenic and rural, away from main roads and tourists but not far from local amenities. The accommodation is perfect, including everything you need if you want to self cater/stay in. The outside bath is a unique addition. In short, switch off the phone, grab a book, run the bath and relax…”
Price per night: From £247 for 2 people
Location: Fordscroft, Crewkerne
Why stay here: If The Yurt Retreat’s roundhouses didn’t take your fancy (though you’d be mad not to like them!), how’s about a stay in their Birdhouse? Standing proud on its tree trunk stilts, the treehouse is clad in local Cedar. A wide staircase winds between the trees to lead you up to your ample decking where you’ll find a gorgeous wood-fired hot tub. Inside, the treehouse is just as dreamy. From the handmade bed to the rain-head shower, they certainly haven’t skimped on luxurious touches here.
What guests say: “We stayed in the Birdhouse, a beautiful eco treehouse, slept so well at night, lovely, warm & cosy, everything has been thought of inside this treehouse (even lactose-free milk) we enjoyed the marshmallows in the evening sitting by the fire, at night there are pretty lights that light up the treehouse & forest outside, so romantic we didn’t want to leave.”
Price per night: From £127 for 2 people
Location: Fordscroft, Crewkerne
Why stay here: The eponymous yurts of The Yurt Retreat are also a real treat! Long gone are the days of back-to-basics yurts because these are something seriously special. You won’t think you’re sleeping under canvas at all. Made with canvas over a beautiful wooden lattice, the hand-sculptured yurts are beautifully designed in a Scandi style. The wood burner and heated blankets mean you’ll stay toasty even on the chilliest nights. And there’s even a stargazing window at the top so you watch the stars from the comfort of your own bed!
What guests say: “I can not speak highly enough of The Yurt Retreat! The yurt was beautifully furnished and had everything we could need for our stay. The yurt has a SUPER comfy double bed (the best sleep we have both had in ages), a sofa, dresser, dining area, TV, log burner, tea and coffee station and a little kitchenette! Outside we had our own little private garden with a BBQ, fire pit and table and chairs on the yurt decking. And of course the private bathroom around the back of the yurt.”
Price per night: From £480 for 2 people
Location: Bruton, Somerset
Why stay here: If you want luxury, then that’s exactly what you’ll find at The Newt Granary Room. Seriously, this place warrants the price tag! This charmingly elevated Georgian Granary has been converted into a romantic hideaway for two that you’ll never want to leave. Inside you’ll find a futon-style king size bed, exposed stone walls and a unique shower room concealed beneath the granary floor. The interior is wonderfully cosy, quirky and fun, and the addition of the wood-burner makes it feel extra snug!
What guests say: “A very quirky room, you need to be moderately fit to climb the stairs to your bed and steps down to the bathroom. Amongst the beams and wood-burning stove, there is a huge television hidden in a cupboard but can be extended into the room. Bookshelves held an eclectic collection of books including classics such as Wuthering Heights. The swimming pool was amazing, indoor/outdoor and as warm as a bath.”
10. Old Oaks Pods
Price per night: From £67 for 2 people
Location: Wick, Glastonbury
Why stay here: When you think of glamping, you probably think of your basic glamping pods. However, Old Oak Pods aren’t just any old pods! Cosy and spacious, these futuristic bespoke glamping cabins were sourced, designed and built just a few miles away near Glastonbury. Inside the heated pods, you’ll find a king-sized bed, mini-fridge, kettle, toaster and a skylight for stargazing. Admittedly, the pods are a little more basic but for the price tag, who can complain?
What guests say: “Can’t rate this place highly enough! We stayed for 3 nights and wished we’d booked for longer. The staff so friendly and the pod and showers were immaculate! Lovely and peaceful! This time we ordered the welcome pack and we were not disappointed. Good quality inside with a full-size bottle of wine. Lovely! Definitely returning for a third year.”
Price per night: From £100 for 2 people
Location: Othery, Somerset
Why stay here: This family-friendly glamping site is home to an amazing selection of unique geodomes. The kids have six acres of meadow to run free in, as well as a separate play area, made with hours of fun in mind. All the while, you can cosy up on a hammock with a glass of wine in hand. Not too bad, huh? Inside the modern geodomes, there’s a double bed and bunk bed; however, they can also add a travel cot or camp bed free of charge. And if you’re worried about getting cold, don’t be, because each dome comes complete with a toasty wood burner!
What guests say: “Our second visit to Tractors & Cream and we were not disappointed! We LOVE the new dome and extra additions like the outdoor kitchen. We felt totally relaxed and Sophia says this is the best holiday in her whole life so you are going something very right. (Probably something to do with the s’mores, fresh brownies & fairy garden along with yours, Anabelle & William’s kind-hearted nature!)”
Price per night: From £80 for 2 people
Location: Mells, Frome
Why stay here: This intimate treehouse is the ultimate romantic getaway for two! Surrounded by fields and idyllic countryside views, you’ll feel a million miles away from the rat race here. The enchanting treehouse allows you to sleep under the stars in luxury, with a cosy double bed, quaint kitchen and full bathroom for you to use. However, my favourite thing about the treehouse is its charming decor and bright and airy wood-panelled walls!
What guests say: “Had a lovely stay in the Treehouse. Located on a picturesque farm in a little village. There were board games and books in the room that would be good if you’re staying for a couple of days. The hosts even kindly provided breakfast ingredients, which was a lovely touch that I wasn’t expecting.”
Price per night: From £75 for 2 people
Location: Kewstoke, Weston Super Mare
Why stay here: If you want to be surrounded by some of Somerset’s best countryside, then you’ll love Woodspring Farm Shepherds Hut. Not only are the views amazing but you’ll also drop off to sleep while literally counting sheep (and goats and pigs) wandering past the hut. Inside, the hut is toasty and charming. However, the highlight of any stay here is the huge organic and locally sourced breakfasts that are brought to your hut at a time of your choosing. Anticipate boiled eggs, toast, croissants, pain au chocolat, yoghurts, cereal, butter, jam, coffee, and teas in abundance!
What guests say: “A very relaxing, get away for a few days, away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Out in the countryside but close to the beach. Amazing weather, and fantastic, hospitable hosts. Lovely shepherds hut very well-equipped. Adorable animals. Fantastic views.”
Price per night: From £172 for 2 people
Location: Horsington, Templecombe
Why stay here: You know I love a treehouse, which is why Cheriton Treehouse has to be one of my favourite places to go glamping in Somerset! Inspired by comparable structures built in Scandinavia, the treehouse has a unique design that is the first of its kind in the UK. The interior is spacious and airy, with lots of luxurious touches such as a wood burner, huge copper tub, a heated floor and a handcrafted bed. And most importantly, there are two elevated viewing decks from which you can soak in the views. You might even be lucky enough to spot local deer drinking from the pond below!
What guests say: “This was heaven and a lovely treat for a short stay. Peaceful with lovely views, countryside and a bit of luxury. The hot tub was fantastic and the wood burner added to the experience. A must is a hot chocolate with Amaretto with blankets watching the night sky. Lots of birds, nuthatch climbed the tree most mornings and heard owls in the evening. Visits on the lake from lots of wildlife.”
Price per night: From £100 for 4 people
Location: Lower Coxbridge, Nr Glastonbury
Why stay here: Situated in a large wildflower paddock adjacent to Lower Coxbridge House, Lower Coxbridge Yurts are a great getaway option for a group of friends or a small family. On-site, you can book everything from a hot tub and yoga to massages and an astrology night sky experience, meaning you could easily spend all your time just within the field. Each yurt is made of quality canvas and sits on a raised wooden platform for added warmth! And if that wasn’t enough, there’s a wood-burning stove with a stove-top kettle to keep you toasty in the colder months. Hot chocolate anyone?
What guests say: “We absolutely loved our stay in the yurt! The fire and blankets kept us nice and warm, we didn’t even have to use the hot water bottles and it was equipped with everything we needed, from candles to crockery. We made the most of the hot tub and the peaceful surroundings too. We were also so impressed with how eco friendly everything was, we will definitely recommend this to our friends and we hope to return to do some yoga too!”
Price per night: From £120 for 4 people
Location: Culmhead, Nr Taunton
Why stay here: If you don’t consider yourself much of a glamper and would rather stay in a little holiday home, then look no further than The Oak Escape Tiny House. Inside you’ll find everything you’d expect from a large and luxurious holiday home, such as a full kitchen and dining area with an Espresso machine, a large bathroom with a heated towel rail, and a king-size bed. It’s all just packed into a smaller space! However, the highlight of this property is the wraparound deck with a hot tub, BBQ, dining area, bean bags and bikes.
What guests say: “This property is fab! It’s so cosy and modern, it’s brilliant. We loved that we could be self-sufficient because of the kitchen area and it had its element of privacy because it’s on private land. It also looks out into a field with cows in which was a lovely sight to watch in the evenings with the sunset! And who can fault a hot tub, it made the whole experience feel even more special.”
Price per night: From £217 for 6 people
Location: Brompton Ralph, Somerset
Why stay here: Who needs Africa when you’ve got Somerset, ey? You’ll feel like you’re staying on the plains of South Africa at Middle Stone Farm where you’ll find six spacious and luxurious safari tents. Separated into two separate glamping fields, ensuring privacy for all, each tent comes with a private wood-fired hot tub, large enough to fit six people! Outside you’ll also find private firepits and hammocks, ideal for long summer evenings watching the sunset. And the best part is that you don’t need to compromise on luxury to stay here because each tent has full private bathrooms with hot showers, flushing loos and lighting.
What guests say: “Such a wonderful place! The owners are so welcoming and accommodating. We felt so comfortable and relaxed here. Lovely touches to the accommodation. It was well kept indoors and out, and the great option to have homemade cooked food was PERFECT! What a lovely touch that was. I would definitely recommend and would stay again! (our dog loved it too!)”
Price per night: From £77 for 2 people
Location: Gurney Slade, Radstock
Why stay here: Looking for something a little quirkier than your usual glamping holiday in Somerset? Well, that’s exactly what you’ll find in Mendip Molly. This vintage 1949 showman’s wagon is packed full of charm, history and a delicious interior that is an amalgamation of all sorts of styles. A highlight is the elaborate painting of a bird-filled sky that you’ll spot on the ceiling! Additionally, the stargazing starlight above the shower is another real treat too.
What guests say: “Mendip Molly is a gorgeous converted showman’s caravan, complete with mod-cons. The caravan is situated on the owner’s site, along with two other cottages, but it’s hidden away in the corner of the grounds giving you lots of privacy. The caravan was spotlessly clean and David and Laraine were on hand if necessary (to delivery extra logs for the fire). The BBQ hut is amazing and was super toasty warm on a chilly Saturday evening.”
Price per night: From £105 for 2 adults and up to 3 children
Location: Emborough, Radstock
Why stay here: A wood-fired hot tub under the trees. Have I sold you on The Yurt Sanctuary yet? Set in a secure two-acre paddock within the wonderful Somerset countryside, The Yurt Sanctuary is home to two cosy and beautifully designed yurts that you’ll never want to leave! Sat at opposite ends of the paddock, with plenty of trees between them, the yurts are not only totally private and separate from each other, but also from the rest of the world. Whether you book a massage treatment or a crystal healing session (or how about both?), you’ll go back to your hectic life feeling oh-so-refreshed.
What guests say: “We’ve just come back from here after a weekend of outdoor heaven. Michele did everything she could to make our stay as enjoyable as possible and went above and beyond. From the warm welcome to delaying feeding the goats so our son could join in and help, we couldn’t have had a better time! The yurt was beautiful, comfortable and very warm with the fire going. The hot tub was amazing and felt even better to know we had helped to heat it.”
Price per night: From £115 for 2 people
Location: Shepton Mallet, Somerset
Why stay here: Okay so Somerset Tree Tent is easily one of my top five places to go glamping in Somerset. I mean, just look at it! Could you possibly ask for anything more unique than that? Wild, natural and totally off-grid, the tree tent is a suspended spherical structure strung between two trees overlooking the gorgeous Mendip Hills. It captures the fun of camping while still feeling luxurious. From the rope bridge to the fire pit to the hot outdoor shower, get ready for a stay like no other.
What guests say: “We had the most wonderful stay at the tree tent! Pippa was ever so accommodating and helped my boyfriend (now fiancee) to set up the perfect proposal! From the moment you drive through the gates, you will be in awe of the beauty and sense of tranquillity. The kitchen is fully equipped, the shower is a great experience and the fire is perfect – don’t forget marshmallows! You also get a great view of the sunset from the field just outside the tree tent.”
Price per night: From £122 for 2 people
Location: West Bagborough, Taunton
Why stay here: Great views? Check. Wood-fired hot tub? Check. Luxurious interiors? One big check! There’s nothing not to love about Tilbury Farm Shepherds Huts; however, the highlight is obviously those views! I mean, I personally couldn’t think of anything much more idyllic than sitting back outdoors watching the sunset with a book in one hand and a glass of wine in the other. And if the weather’s not on your side, the hut is lovingly stocked with a multitude of games, books, music, Wi-Fi and entertainment to keep you busy on even on the rainiest of the days!
What guests say: “Everything was amazing. The setting is resplendent. It’s like sitting in heaven watching the world below you. The hut is also amazing. To call it a hut is a disservice the double brace hut layout is fantastic. We’ve stayed in shepherd huts before and they were lovely but this gives so much space it’s like a little hotel suite. Being able to spread out and not fall over your belongings. The food hamper was also fabulous – lots of local produce, all of it lovely.”
Price per night: From £165 for 2 people or £215 for 6 people
Location: Compton Martin, Bristol
Why stay here: Whether you’ve got kids or are just big kids at heart, you’ve got to book a stay at Herons Green Farm Trucks. And if the trucks don’t take your fancy, then the views certainly will! With unparalleled views over Chew Valley Lake, you won’t feel like you’re in Somerset here. So if you’re persuaded, take a pick from Big Red, the truck for two, or The Green Room, the truck for six. Both trucks have been lovingly renovated into charming and characterful spaces that I just can’t get enough of.
Price per night: From £95 for 2 people
Location: Lamyatt, Nr Shepton Mallet
Why stay here: The charming Jake’s Cabin goes hard on beautiful interiors and even better views! The beautiful rolling hillside view from the cabin’s verandah is nothing short of heavenly. I really think you need to see it in person to believe it. However, if you’d rather just cosy up inside, you can still enjoy the views through the deep floor to ceiling French windows. Similarly, the warm yellow roll-top bath is ideal for sunny soaks, soaking up the sunshine through the bathroom skylight. Just a book stay here, I promise you won’t regret it.
What guests say: “Wow, wow, wow! Jake’s Cabin is amazing! If you love a traditional, cosy and warm cabin with breathtaking views, then look no further! A beautiful idyllic cabin surrounded by open fields and yes! Views! We had everything we needed from sugar, coffee, milk and even a delicious lemon cake, so expect to drool! Neil had lit the fire for when we came in and oh, it was perfect. We took our two dogs and they had a secure garden to play in and then just open your gate and you’re in the fields.”
24. Deers Leap Yurt
Price per night: From £100 for 2 people
Location: Willoughby Cleeve, Holford
Why stay here: These views are just getting ridiculous now, aren’t they? Overlooking trees, rolling countryside and ancient woodland, Deers Leap is set in a little slice of heaven. You might even spot deer in the woods as you lie out on the deck, swing in the hammock or sit around the fire bowl on a lazy afternoon. And that’s not even to mention the starry night skies here! However, if you visit during a rainy period, don’t worry because the yurt is cosy and filled with books to keep you entertained on even the rainiest of days.
What guests say: “Dave and Kate provided an absolutely amazing stay for us – chocolate brownies left out when we arrived, beautiful, soft robes for the quick walk to the shower in the morning, firewood, and fairy lights which automatically come on when it’s dark so you don’t have to scramble around with a torch at night. There wasn’t anything missing or lacking from our stay – the bed was super comfy and cosy, the soft rugs on the floor to sit by the fire, all lovely!”
Price per night: From £115 for 2 people
Location: Henley, Langport
Why stay here: Your surroundings won’t get much more idyllic than the ones you’ll find at The Nancy Blackett Shepherds Hut. I mean not many people can say that they’ve woken up on their very own island before! One of my favourite places to go glamping in Somerset, this shepherds hut is perched on its own tiny island, completely surrounded by nature with a little wooden bridge to the mainland. There’s so much to do here that I wouldn’t even know where to begin! Whether you spend your time snoozing in the hammock, boating around the lake, cooking on the campfire or unwinding in the wood-fired hot tub, you’re guaranteed a good time here.
What guests say: “Beautiful, peaceful, secluded and private place for two. Perfect for relaxing and wildlife spotting. Really enjoyed our stay, made even better by the fantastic weather. We were planning on doing some walks but it was all so perfect that we chose to stay and enjoy the lovely setting. Enjoyed rowing on the lake, birdwatching, cooking on the fire pit and just relaxing in our own little private nature reserve.”
Price per night: From £95 for 2 people
Location: Hutton, Nr Weston-super-Mare
Why stay here: The word I would use to describe Paradise Garage Tiny House is ‘cool’. Seriously, this place is cool through and through. The contemporary chill-out space is tastefully decorated and furnished to a high standard with new fixtures, fittings and furnishings. Highlights include a vintage-style wood burner, underfloor heating, Wi-Fi, TV with Netflix, digital radio and a Bluetooth speaker. Regardless of what the weather’s like, there’s so much fun to be had here. However, the house comes into its own on warmer days because the large folding doors open onto a decking area.
What guests say: “My stay at Driftwood was perfect! I loved Lisa’s place, it is well designed, very clean and the host (Lisa) was very friendly and helpful. The log fire is ideal for cold winter evenings and helps warm the place up perfectly. It is in a good position for visiting Weston and has a great local pub just over the road.”
27. Yarlington Yurt
Price per night: From £85 for 4 people
Location: Yarlington, Somerset
Why stay here: Set in stunning Georgian manor grounds with no less than a swimming pool, Yarlington Yurt is a great little getaway for couples or families. An unusual yurt arrangement, the yurt is split up into two sections: one with a king-sized bed and one with two single beds. It’s wonderfully eccentric and most importantly means that parents can escape from the kids for a while too! Additionally, the interior is a magnificent amalgamation of all sorts, from lamps and fairy lights to paintings and beautiful fabrics.
What guests say: “A charming cosy yurt in a private extensive garden and grounds that we were encouraged to explore. Charles and Carolyn were on hand should we require anything, and were very interesting hosts when we got to chat to them. Despite cold October nights, the wood-burning stove kept the yurt comfortably warm and there was plenty of hot water in the adjacent shower and kitchen facility.”
Price per night: From £88 for 6 people
Location: Coxbridge, Nr Glastonbury
Why stay here: If you want to go glamping in Somerset with a big group of friends or family, without it costing you too much, then you need to book a stay at Tall Trees Glamping. Accommodating six people each, the four luxurious safari tents offer the ultimate rural escape. Set in a large field with a variety of trees and plants, a wildflower meadow and an orchard, nature is at its best here. And the best part is that you can be close to nature without compromising on luxury because the interiors are just stunning!
What guests say: “Fabulous location, helpful staff, high quality, spacious, everything you need! The photos do not do it justice. The ‘tents’ are beautiful, the location is quiet and tidy, the bathrooms have a powerful shower, lots of towels, heated blankets on the beds (which are very comfy). There were more than enough cooking utensils, good sized fridge, a sitting area outside with a fire pit, a log burner inside, board games.. the list goes on, basically everything you need is provided.”
Price per night: From £136.50 for 2 people
Location: Roundham, Crewkerne
Why stay here: Okay so the Shepherds Hut Retreat might just win the award for my favourite place to go glamping in Somerset. I mean, the hot tub alone is enough to warrant a visit. Could you think of a more idyllic setting to go for a dip? From the modern and beautifully designed kitted out interiors to the private woodland gardens with fire bowls to the lakeside hot tub and sauna, there are endless things to love about this place. I promise it’s impossible to not fall head over heels for this retreat – and especially Shepherds Parlour!
What guests say: “Perfect luxury inside, with every attention to detail. Sumptuous bedding and throws, so cosy, everything I needed (and more!) in the kitchen, and the bathroom was such a treat to use, fantastic shower, and really lovely products! I could open the door and look at the lake and hear the wildlife. Beautiful decking area with comfy places to sit amongst the twinkly fairy lights. The bed was so comfortable, the TV and radio were easy to use, and of course the treat of the gin bar.”
Price per night: From £100 for 2 people
Location: Haselbury Plucknett, Crewkerne
Why stay here: Esme’s Escape Shepherds Hut is multi-award-winning for a reason. Nestled in the heart of the picturesque village of Haselbury Plucknett, the hut is perfectly situated in South Somerset to enjoy some of the UK’s best scenery! There is so much to love about this place. An outdoor seating area with a log-fired hot tub, locally sourced breakfast ingredients, and a flushing loo and an electric shower. Need I say more?
What guests say: “They have thought of EVERYTHING… down to the smallest of details and special touches. The homemade Christmas cake was delicious and the homemade sloe gin was perfect with the complimentary Prosecco. Breakfast was simply delicious and we had more than enough for our two mornings. We had takeaway from the White Horse (which was delicious) so we could make the most of the wood-fired hot tub.”
Price per night: From £155 per night for 4 people
Location: Goathurst, Bridgwater
Why stay here: Want to go glamping in the Quantock Hills? Then it’s time to head to Secret Valley. The site is home to yurts, shepherds huts and bell tents galore so there’s something to suit everyone! However, my favourite type of accommodation here is the wigwams and lodges with Scandinavian wood-fired hot tubs. These stunning, spacious wigwams and lodges are beautifully designed and kitted out with everything you could possibly need. Plus, the surroundings are beautiful too. Wander through the vineyards, climb trees and say hello to their fluffy residents!
What guests say: “We stayed in a Hill View Wigwam which was in its own area away at the top of the fields. We had a fire pit and hot tub. Everything was spotless and we had our own shower room which was really convenient and clean. Someone came round late afternoon where we bought some ciders but you can buy wine and wood for the pit as well if you want.”
Price per night: From £150 for 2 people
Location: Catcott, Somerset
Why stay here: One of the most amazing treehouse holidays with a hot tub in the UK, Orchard Rooms Treehouse is modern, romantic, and, well, pretty much perfect. If it’s luxury and relaxation that you’re after, you’ll get it here! There are so many different places to unwind here, from the hammock and the firepit to the hot tub and the balcony. Plus, there’s even an outdoor shower for those feeling a little more adventurous too! And if the weather’s not on your side, cosy up in the living area and get ready to play board and card games.
What guests say: “The treehouse was much more spacious than we had anticipated, and we had everything we needed for our stay, including a lovely little goodies hamper! We spent blissful mornings on the balcony with coffee in hand watching the birds, and the evenings relaxing in the hot tub with a glass of something, enjoying the peace and quiet. Every thought has been put into this lovely little stay, and it is an absolute gem of a find.”
Price per night: From £105 for 2 adults and 2 children
Location: Winsham, Somerset
Why stay here: So The Gardener’s Shed may have the word ‘shed’ in its name but I can assure you that there’s a lot more glamour to this stay! In fact, despite looking a little more rustic than some other glamping holidays in Somerset, it’s actually incredibly well-equipped. There may be no Wi-Fi or a TV, but this simple cabin comes complete with a wood-burning stove, gas hobs, and an ensuite bathroom. But let’s be honest, you come here for the gorgeous views down the Axe Valley. They really are second-to-none!
What guests say: “We had a perfect time. The shed was lovely, comfortable and had a view that was out of this world. We loved having the animals so close around us – every morning being g greeted by their lovely dog, the pigs, the hens, geese, sheep and cow!

Why stay here: If you want to stay somewhere that’s both a little more back-to-basics and a little more friendly on your wallet, then why not consider a stay at Gypsy Caravan Breaks? This beautiful, fully-restored gypsy bow top wagon allows you to sample a lifestyle almost lost to the modern world. Nestled in the lush surroundings of an old cider apple orchard and wildflower meadow, this really is a get-away-from-it-all getaway. Enjoy some well-earnt relaxation and a trip you won’t forget anytime soon!
What guests say: “On arrival, you won’t be able to hold back your excitement as you walk towards the gypsy trailer. We picked apples, plums and blackberries that were in the field and loved melting marshmallows on the fire and enjoying watching the flames fading before settling for the night. Added bonus the use of your own shower was bliss, and can’t forget Borris the donkey – just a lovely touch to have him in the field next door.”

Why stay here: Set on the edge of a babbling brook, Ruby the Shepherds Hut is a little slice of paradise. When you arrive, you won’t know what to do first: start digging into the homemade shortbread awaiting your arrival, or start exploring every little nook and cranny of the hut. Regardless of what you choose to do first, you’ll soon be watching the sunset and the stars light up the night sky from your private deck by the fire pit. Inside, the double bed-cum-dining table, luxury ensuite, fluffy towels, and induction hobs will make you feel right at home straight away.
What guests say: “Such a beautiful location in a secluded part of the extensive garden, surrounded by trees and a babbling stream, it was really private and peaceful. The hut was extremely cosy, with everything we needed and lots of attention to detail. Amazing personal touches like homemade shortbread and granola, and the owner’s own artwork. Loved sitting by the fire pit listening to the owls as it got dark.”

Why stay here: If you want unique, that’s exactly what you’ll get at Twigbox. One of the cheaper glamping holidays in Somerset, this is an ideal stay for those who want luxury without the huge price tag. The horse box is tucked away in a three-acre field in the heart of some of Somerset’s most stunning countryside, making it the perfect place to escape from it all. With ample indoor space and a fully-kitted kitchen, you couldn’t really ask for much more.
What guests say: “Twigbox has been designed and decorated beautifully and has more space then we thought! The hosts have thoughtfully filled Twigbox with everything you could need including dressing gowns, tea, coffee and even breakfast in the fridge!

37. Sawpits Wagon
Price per night: From £70 for 2 people
Location: King’s Stag, Sturminster Newton
Why stay here: Sawpits Wagon might just be one of my favourite places to go glamping in Somerset for that decking alone! I couldn’t think of many places more tranquil to enjoy a glass of wine as the sun goes down. Set in an idyllic part of a 1800 acre estate, you’ll have uninterrupted views over the countryside, ranging so wide that you can watch both the sunrise and sunset without moving an inch. Once you’ve watched the sunrise, you can fry up your breakfast either on the gas hob or cook over the campfire!
What guests say: “A lovely get away from city life to a simplistic country stay with the luxury of a homely feel. Everywhere was exceptionally clean in the wagon and even the small touches of how well maintained the grounds around the wagon were kept really made the whole stay feel like something from a film. Jack was an excellent host who helped us with any little question or queries we had prior to our stay.”

Having booked this lovely yurt for my boyfriend’s birthday, Estelle and Malcolm were extremely thoughtful and had bought a bottle of prosecco for us when we arrived. The yurt itself is so unique, the bed is so comfy and being able to throw a log into the log burner for the evening makes it even cosier. Outside the yurt is an awesome little spot to have a drink and watch the sunset.”
