Could you think of a more idyllic setting to go for a dip?

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 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. The food hamper was also fabulous – lots of local produce, all of it lovely.”

Tor View Shepherds Huts serves up everything you’d want from a Somerset shepherds hut: a private hot tub, views of Glastonbury Tor, and the cosiest of interiors.
There are two shepherds huts to choose from, depending on what you want from your glamping trip.
The first has mains electric, central heating, and Wi-Fi, and the second doesn’t.
Choose accordingly based on whether you want to have a digital detox away from technology or whether you still want to post that all-important Instagram pic.
I’d personally opt for the latter as I love an off-grid escape, but the choice is all yours!
What guests say: “We have just had the most amazing three-night stay in Ted’s Hut. Everything was thought of, even fresh milk in the fridge when we arrived. Wonderful hot tub, pizza oven and fantastic fire pit oven which we cooked on every evening. Waking up to the view in the morning of Glastonbury Tor is something we will never forget.”

Set on a small 30-acre historic farm on the Blackdown Hills, Dimpsey Shepherds Huts are simply wonderful.
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: “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.”

Once you’ve visited Secret Valley Shepherds Huts you won’t be able to decide between keeping it your own special ‘secret’ or shouting about it from the rooftops.
Well, today I’m here to shout about it as loud as possible because these huts are seriously special!
Tucked away in a peaceful private spot on the edge of the vineyard, their two beautiful shepherds huts even have private Scandinavian wood-fired hot tubs.
Each hut also has its own picnic table, BBQ and fire pit so you can dine alfresco as the sun goes down, then toast marshmallows while stargazing.
If this sounds as much of a dream to you as it does to me then book in ASAP!
What guests say: “What an absolute gem of a place. The whole site was spotless, situated in beautiful surroundings, and Jan was on hand for anything we wanted. If you’re looking for somewhere to unwind then this is the place. Idyllic is the only word to describe Secret Valley. The shepherd’s hut was perfect. Located on its own next to the vineyard, but close to all amenities, we had all the privacy we needed.”

Inside, the hut is toasty and charming too.

Frogmary Green Farm Shepherds Huts is pretty heavenly, if you ask me.
Firstly, you’ve got amazing scenery right on your doorstep – I mean, this is a farm, after all!
Secondly, the shepherds huts’ interiors take country chic to a whole new level.
With traditional sheep’s wool-lined walls and underfloor heating to keep your toes toasty, the huts are ridiculously snug.
They also benefit from some beautiful furniture that I just can’t get enough of.
And best of all, both of the huts have an outside decking area, where you can soak up some of the best sunsets that Somerset has to offer!
What guests say: “The hut is beautiful, comfy and very private. Hamper goodies left around the kitchen was an amazing touch. Unfortunately, it rained the whole time we were there and still had an amazing time. Catherine is really great, helpful, and attentive.”

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.

Lord of the Rings fans gather around because Walnut Tree Shepherds Huts‘ huts are named Gandalf and Hobbit!
The huts are simple but staying here isn’t necessarily about the huts themselves.
It’s more about embracing nature and switching off from the hustle and bustle of modern life.
Set at either end of a five acre farm, open the stable doors to views across open Somerset countryside.
Choose Gandalf if you’re staying for a little longer and want a little more space to spread yourselves across, and choose the aptly named Hobbit if you’re after a smaller, more romantic bolthole.
Both huts benefit from a double bed, bedding, a log burner, sink, small table, and cooking utensils.
Hot and powerful showers, and loos, are just a stone’s throw away.
What guests say: “We just loved it. It was cute, roomy, comfy and very peaceful. We had a campfire in the evening and there was even a log burner in the hut. There’s a beautiful view from the hut and its a pleasure just to chill and sit outside. We will definitely be back again.”

Lady’s Well Shepherds Hut has to be one of my all-time favourite Somerset shepherds huts for its surroundings alone!
Set on the edge of a natural spring-fed pond with a private rowing boat, it doesn’t get much more romantic than this.
Well, until you throw a hot tub, sun loungers and a fire pit into the mix too!
This might just be heaven on earth – and luckily for you, the inside of the hut is just as dreamy.
The shepherds hut comprises an open plan living room with a kitchen and dining area, a king-size bedroom, and an en-suite shower room.
Oh, and of course, large windows through which to soak up the amazing views.
I recently stayed here and couldn’t recommend it enough – you can read my Lady’s Well Shepherds Hut review here.

If Old Rose Shepherds Hut‘s interior (and name!) isn’t exactly what you’d expect from an English countryside holiday home, I’d be seriously surprised.
Quintessentially English in every way, the beautifully handcrafted hut takes shabby chic to a whole new level.

The Masons Arms Shepherds Hut is pretty much the definition of ‘snug’.
I would happily stay cosied up in the cabin bed all day!

Inside the hut you’ll find your bed, living area, woodburning stove, and en-suite toilet and wash basin.

Worth it for some delicious pub grub, I say.

The bolthole was adorable and the staff provided everything you could possibly need, including spare dog bowls/blankets, torches, towels, shower gel, logs for kindling, etc. The hut was cleaned every day and the tea/coffee supplies were stocked up. The Masons Arms is a wonderful pub and the food is delicious.”
