Glamping Somerset with Hot Tub
The latest glamping experience is staying in a romantic shepherds hut in the heart of Somerset and a true opportunity to experience nature in luxury. We are perfect for either a romantic break or just a well needed escape from the bustle of daily life. Situated on the borders of Somerset, Dorset and Devon and easily accessed by road and rail. The Shepherds Hut Retreat is a great base to explore all the South West has to offer, especially the World Heritage Jurassic Coast offering gems such as Lyme Regis all within a half an hour’s drive. We are blessed with an award winning gastro pub on the door step. The Lord Poulett Arms in Hinton St George has won both Gastro pub of the year and National dining pub of the year more than once!

Set amongst the trees on the water’s edge are four luxury Shepherds Huts, each with its own private decking and fire pit. Inside each spacious Shepherds Hut you will find a beautiful bathroom and fully equipped kitchen, dining area and a comfy double bed along with DVD, DAB radio and WIFI.
