Lambs Tale Shepherds Hut is very cosy, very well equipped, very comfortable, surprisingly spacious and in a great location for exploring the Quantock Hills and Somerset area. The hot tub is great for relaxing in the evening while watching the bats and listening to the owls. The fully enclosed garden was thoroughly enjoyed by our dog. We had a lovely stay and would like to return at some point

Wonderful 3 nights. Everything you need in the cooking area, comfy bed and lovely shower. The hot tub was lovely after a day's walking, even in the rain! Secluded garden for our dog to roam in was safe. A very happy stay.

How lovely that you and your dog had such a lovely stay in this shepherd's hut. We hope that you had time to explore the Quantocks and Exmoor while you were there. Donna, Customer Support

Our hosts were friendly and welcoming and always available. The Shepherds Hut was cosy and comfortable and provided everything we needed for a pleasant stay.

The Quantock Hills are stunning with a diverse range of landscapes and wildlife, it is remote and wild and seemingly untouched by tourism. The Farm is in an idyllic location, providing the perfect spot for unwinding, engaging with nature and relaxing in the lovely hot tub under the stars in the evenings.

I would definitely recommend a stay.

What a beautiful week away from it all. Thank you so much for everything. I will be back!

We had a great few days at the sheperds hut. Our dog loved the enclosed garden area...his first doggy holiday! Everything you could need had been thought of and supplied in the hut. We will return!

Such a lovely space for a relaxing few days. The shepherd's hut was fitted out really well with quite a lot of storage space to help keep a small space lovely and tidy. It was very comfortable and clean with some nice goodies left for our arrival. The owners couldn't have been any more helpful and even invited us to feed a couple of baby goats. The area was easy enough to navigate although some very narrow roads to negotiate at times which we got used to as we went along. Great places to visit, walks inland or on the coastline, Quantock Hill views, lovely pubs, cream teas and that lovely little hot tub!

Excellent shepherds hut, ideal for one or two people. Very good bathroom\showed facilities, very comfortable memory foam bed.

Fab little shepards hut, had everything we needed and more. Really nice meet and greet from the friendly owners who showed us around and how to use the oven/ hot tub ect. Beautiful view from the window and really lovely to sit in hot tub and enjoy the surroundings.

Couldn’t recommend more

Lovely place to stay with all amenities (including early morning sheep awakenings!). Hosts are always willing to help and always ready to leave you alone. Nothing better than a long walk in the Quantock Hills followed by a soak in the hot tub.

Our stay at The Lambs Tale Shepherd’s Hut was absolutely delightful in every way. Sue and Terry are fabulous hosts they really have thought of everything that guests may need. The hot tub complete with robes and towels was so nice and completely private. We certainly hope to return

We thoroughly enjoyed our 3 day mini holiday in the hut. It was a beautiful tranquil setting to relax and unwind. It's so close to the quantocks that we were able to walk from the hut up to Wills Neck which was brilliant. It made a big difference to have a few days without driving. The hosts were excellent and provided everything we needed for a comfortable stay, including kindling for the firepit and coals for the bbq!

Lamb's Tail was the perfect escape - it was compact but it had everything you needed, it was so well thought out! We were very lucky with the weather, the clear evening skies were perfect for stargazing whilst sat in the hot tub. We will definitely be returning!

The property, hosts & vicinity were amazing - exceeded our expectations and was far more cosy, warm & comfortable than we could have imagined. A wonderful way to kickstart our Christmas - thank you very much.

Wow! My short stay in the shepherd’s hut was just absolutely perfect! Next time, and there will definitely be a next time, I will definitely stay longer! A wonderful warm welcome from Sue, who was so helpful in planning and showing me the nearby walks as I don’t drive. A bottle of wine and delicious biscuits provided, and the interior was spotless, beautifully presented and well equipped. An absolute beauty! The hot tub is a must, especially under the stars after a long walk with my little dog in the woods. I highly recommend Lambs Tail, it was the perfect restful rural retreat , looking forward to returning!!

Thanks so much for your lovely comments. It sounds as if you had a truly memorable stay and made the most of this perfect romantic retreat. We're looking forward to welcoming you back soon. Julie, Customer Support

The hut was lovely. A peaceful location with views across open fields and the Bristol Channel. It was very rural, which we like, but close enough to shops and great access to the Quantock Hills and Dunster Castle. The hot tub was bliss! Will definitely be returning!

Very friendly owners, loved the little touches like the wine and biscuits. Garden and hut both kept well and looked lovely! Owners always on hand should we need anything and great restaurant recommendations

This is an absolute gem of a property. The location so peaceful, the hosts so helpful, the hut and garden super clean and comfortable, loved the sun loungers and the hot tub! Excellent value for money , was the perfect getaway ?? Would most definitely book again, we only came for the weekend but next time will be longer!

Absolutely amazing will book again and inform friends and family Sue and Terry go above and beyond and everything was done with attention to detail

Plenty to do in the area or perfect for relaxing at the Shepherds Hut and enjoying the hot tub.

Sue and Terry was so welcoming it was my husbands 50th and sue made him a cake . Which was a loverly surprise Terry told us all the good walks and made us laugh with his moving of the ornamental rabbits. Loved the place will definitely be going again

The Shepherd's Hut was so lovely! Everything was equipped to a very high standard, the owners were lovely and friendly and the location was a perfect country retreat!

We had a lovely stay, and made very welcome by the owner who lives on site on the working farm. Already hoping to plan another stay

Amazing place to stay, hot shower, amazing hot tub, comfiest bed, gorgeous views, listening to the animals every morning with a brew in bed was just amazing, big enclosed garden for my little pug he loved it! Can’t wait to come back!

A lovely romantic getaway in a beautiful secluded rural location. Everything you could possibly need is provided including a full size fridge and cooking facilities so you can bring your food for the duration of your stay and not have to leave site if you would like. Clean and comfortable with the added luxury of the hot tub.

Our second visit; couldn't fault it (even the weather) and Terry & Sue lovely hosts. Ideally situated for walking the Quantocks, and an ideal hideaway during Covid times.

We had the most amazing stay at Lamb’s Tale Shepherds Hut. It’s an absolutely gorgeous place to stay, all the little details inside made it such a beautiful and quirky hut. The owners have thought of everything you could ever need! The bed was so comfortable we slept so well in peace and quiet on the farm, the especially after we had lit the wood burning stove. The hot tub was incredible, such beautiful views to enjoy and we loved seeing the chickens each morning. The garden was huge and enclosed so our little dog could run around each morning. The location is fab too, so many beautiful walks nearby and Kilve beach only 20 mins in the car. We loved every minute of our stay and we can’t wait to go back!

Lambs tale shepherds hut is a lovely little shepherd hut in a lovely garden with countryside surrounding it, its beautiful i didn't want to leave, and with the lovely hot tub to,thank you .

We had the most wonderful 4 days at Lamb's Tale, immediately before the 2nd Covid lockdown, and counted ourselves very lucky to have been able to enjoy the break at this time. We absolutely loved everything about the hut, the farm and the surroundings, starting with a warm welcome from Sue. The recently redecorated cosy hut was equipped with everything you could possibly need. The hot tub was bliss, lying looking up at the stars, with the Space Station going over, and fire pit nearby, was wonderful. Walking from the farm up into the hills via Cockercombe to Crowcombe Park Gate and back via Rams Combe was a great circuit, and the autumn colours spectacular. Lovely view across the fields from the kitchen window..and we enjoyed watching Terry on his red tractor not long after sunrise to tend to the sheep, accompanied by his dog running crazy circles around the tractor. We loved every moment of our stay. Thank you Sue and Terry. We'd love to come back one day. Philip & Jill Christow Devon

Amazing little cabin great space to relax and forget everything the hosts are excellent and are most welcoming we had a great little break again (3rd visit) can’t recommend this place highly enough can’t wait to go back again

Amazing long break! This Shepherds hut is just the most cosy, lovely place to stay. Clean and very well equipped. Friendly welcome from the owners with chocolates, biscuits and wine. Great location, with lots of fantastic walks with great views! Hot tub was perfect. Would highly recommend, and can’t wait to go back!

We had a great stay at Lambs Tale, beautiful location and very helpful hosts! The hut was very clean and equipped with everything you need, even had a bottle of wine on arrival which was a nice touch! Hot tub was lovely in the evenings and the dog enjoyed being able to run around our own secure garden

If you are wanting a relaxing experience with lovely surroundings to get away from it all, this is the place to enjoy.

The hut was just perfect, spotlessly clean with everything you need. We had a lovely welcome from the owners and didnt want for anything. We would highly recommend and look forward to coming back.

Well furnished accommodation in beautiful area. Good for walking in Quantock Hills or for coastal walks.

Highly recommended for a week away from everything. Lots of beautiful walks nearby, with or without driving.

Cosy little country retreat, so clean and tidy. The hot tub was to die for! Excellent stay, will definitely be returning!

We have stayed in Shepherd’s huts before but have never been in one where the owners are so friendly and have put so much effort and thought into providing every thing you need for a warm, comfortable, relaxing stay. There was everything you needed and many unexpected touches too like the delicious homemade cakes and mince pies, wine and chops, sauces and condiments, jams and cereals. It was a pre Christmas break and Sue kindly asked before we arrived if we would like some decorations too! We were also surprised and delighted to be asked if we would like to join them at a friends house in the village for some Carol Singing on our last night.A lovely way to end our break and finished off with a last soak in the hot-tub star gazing. Lots of trees and shrubs around also provide good opportunities for bird spotting too.

Thanks so much for reviewing Lamb's Tale Shepherd's Hut - the owners certainly go the extra mile to ensure their guests have everything they need to have the best Glamping experience possible. It sounds like you had a great break overall and what a lovely way to get into the festive spirit before the madness ensues back at home! We do hope to welcome you back again sometime. Bryony, Customer Support

We had lovely week away, owners were so friendly on arrival showed us around the facilties and the hot tub warm with robes to use. Made more special with homemade cake and a bottle of wine from the owners.

We realy enjoyed our relaxing stay at the Hut. The welcome gifts were a lovely touch and the owners very pleasant to tak to. The Hut has everything you'd need in terms of kitchen amenities. The hot tub is a nice relaxing retreat (as is the shower - which is big and certainly hot enough). The wood burner also makes for cosy) nights in! Would highly recommend booking Sunday luch at the local Rising Sun Inn (15min drive or 1hr45 walk). Would highly recommned - and have done so to family & friends already!

Lovely hosts and great little get away!

This Shepherd's Hut delivers on everything; from amenities within the hut and outside (hot tub, BBQ and fire-pit for example!) to the friendly and welcoming hosts and the stunning location. Would stay again in a heartbeat!

We had such a lovely time! The hut is so cute and beautiful- everything is organised beautifully. We enjoyed going for walks during the day followed by hot tub then movie in the evening! The eggs, a glass of home brewed cider and bottle of wine was also a great touch. We will deffo head back in the future. Thank you

Great place, wonderful hosts very enjoyable stay indeed.

Sue had thought of everything one would required for your stay. All the extras made the stay over and above my expectations.Hot tub was ready for use on arrival, with a bottle of white wine in the fridge ready chilled. I would definitely recommend Lamb’s Tale to friends and family

We very much enjoyed our stay. With thanks to our hosts for our welcoming wine and cakes after a long journey. The situation was perfect and only wish it could have been for longer. Thank you. A most enjoyable and relaxing stay.

It was just perfect! All of the little details, the kindness and unobtrusive nature of Mr and Mrs Knox, our dog loved having his own little garden and especially his visits from Ben! The hot tub was a really nice touch and the hut was the perfect mix of feeling close to nature but also having the amenities to make it comfortable. Waking up to hearing the farm animals and the sunlight coming through the curtains was just perfect. Also, the little things like having a view of the farm animals from our window, the peace and quiet and even the wine and cake on arrival. Could not fault anything! We will certainly be back! Thank you again!

Absolutely gorgeous place in a fabulous location. Tranquil and the ideal place for a relaxing holiday.

This place is amazing for a relaxing, comfortable get away. Anything you could possibly need has been thought of and provided for you. We would definitely recommend staying here.

This was the most amazing experience. The hut had absolutely everything we needed for our stay..... it really was just turn up everything’s here!!!!! This has been one of the best!

Wow! Lamb's Tale is THE perfect hideaway retreat for a couple and their four-legged friend. We had such an amazing time and are already planning to go back! The hut itself has everything you need, from the well-equipped kitchen area to the hot shower to the comfy king-size bed. The garden is a great size and escape-proof for the dog. And the location couldn't be better - less than a five minute walk and you're in the Quantock Hills - stunning scenery and fantastic walks. Lots of lovely villages nearby too, with supermarkets available in nearby Bridgwater as well. The owners, Sue and Terry, are very friendly and helpful but totally unobtrusive. Just THE place to stay for a cosy and chilled out getaway - we can't wait to go back.

We were really blessed by our holiday here, as the shepherds hut was cosy and had everything you needed. And relaxing in the hot tub under the stars after a day spent mountain biking or walking in the Quantocks was magical. The owners hospitality was superb and they really made us feel welcome and all the little extras like little gifts and having a decent wood supply really sets them apart. I will be recommending this place to my friends and family. Thanks for having us and God bless :)

Five star perfect for restful break with fantastic host

Perfection - a beautiful getaway in beautiful setting. Thank you!

Apart from copyright issues Lamb's Tale could very readily be renamed:- *rinol Cottage as it does everything it says on the tin !!! A much needed and appreciated break.

Lamb's Tale is a slightly quirky and truly delightful place to stay. It is both comfortable and well supplied with everything you could hope for to make your stay enjoyable. The hot tub is a wonderful bonus that added a wonderfully relaxing dimension to the holiday. A place we will always remember and hopefully visit again.

Excellent stay at Lamb's Tale, lovely setting, and very friendly landlords (and dog Ben!). Very clean and comfortable, hot tub is a definite bonus. Welcome cake and wine was a lovely touch.

My partner and I stayed here in July with our 4 month old daughter and it was absolutely perfect. The location was stunning, so scenic and really allowed you to get away from the hustle and bustle of every day life. The cabin itself was spotless throughout and surprisingly spacious inside, perfect for our little family. We took our daughter's travel cot with us and we still had plenty of room to move around the cabin, which was a pleasant surprise. Now let me talk about the main attraction, the wood burning hot tub. The hot tub is the selling point to this cabin and was amazing. My partner and I used it almost every night, glass of wine in hand, watching the sun set and the stars appear in the night sky. It really couldn't of been more perfect. The holiday was made even better (which I really didn't think was possible) by the absolutely, lovely service we received from start to finish. The owners went out of their way to make us feel welcome. On arrival, after a nearly 5 hour car drive with a 4 month old, we was greeted with homemade cupcakes and a bottle of wine, its like they knew! There was even milk in the fridge and tea and coffee available, so there was no need for us to rush out to the shops. My little family and I had the best time at the Lamb's tale shepherd's hut and we would definitely recommend. We will also be returning!

We loved our stay at Lambs Tale it was excellent and would throughly recommend it. The owners were lovely and everything we needed was there. The hot tub was fab and the location beautiful. We had an amazing time for our 1st wedding anniversary and would love to go again. Many thanks Richard and Andrea Barber-Fleming

Lambs Tale is one of the nicest places we've stayed! Ideal for a relaxing, peaceful, romantic break. Small but very perfectly formed! Bliss ?

Great location, great hot tub, great hut!

I enjoyed a very restful and relaxing few days. Certainly hope to return. Thank you

This was the perfect little retreat. Such a lovely welcome for us with home made cake, wine & eggs freshly laid that morning. All the little touches just made it so special. Already looking at returning.

You have to go!! It was a wonderful stay, the perfect little get away from the busy rush of home. It's a little piece of paradise and we'll definitely be going back soon. Many thanks to Lamb's Tale for having us stay. P.s the cake on arrival is amazing!!

Was an absolutely fantastic short break. The cottage was well thought out, clean and had everything you could require. The hosts were amazing as well, taking us via their own car to a brilliant walking spot. Would go again and recommend to anyone.

Expectations were exceeded in every way. Property is beautiful, well maintained and in a beautiful location. The owners went far out of their way to ensure we were comfortable and had everything we needed, right down to giving us a lift in to the hills to start our walk. Every little detail has been thought of including towels for the dog.

Planning to book again and will recommend to others without hesitation.

Thanks for the cake and wine! ??

Totally recommend the lambs tale for a relaxing break away! We had the most wonderful week, the owners could not be more kind or thoughtful! Amazing setting and being on the farm with the animals was a huge bonus for us! The hot tub was beautiful and we left feeling truly rested! We will always remember the farm fondly as the place we got engaged too! We will definitely be back!

Thanks so much for your review, and very many congratulations on your engagement! Tanya, Customer Support

We had a fantastic stay at the shepherd's hut over the bank holiday weekend. There are lots of lovely walks nearby which our Labrador loved and then we could return to the cosy hut and jump in the hot tub. Bliss!

Sue & Terry's welcome and hospitality were wonderful, many thanks for that! They have thought of every eventuality, there was nothing we needed that we couldn't find in the hut.

We loved our stay and would heartily recommend this small but beautifully formed home. Our dog Hope loved having her own paddock too.

The hot tub seals the deal :)

Had a lovely relaxing stay in the Shepherd's Hut. Equipped with everything you could need and decorated to a high standard. We loved the peace and quiet of the farm setting and the gorgeous views. The owner made a delicious cake and left a bottle of wine for us on our arrival. The thoughtful personal touches were next to none. The farm dog was a real hit too - he was a cutey! Thanks for a very easy booking and relaxing stay.

We had a wonderful time at lamb's tale, brilliant hosts, brilliant setting, brilliant hut. Thanks for an amazing honeymoon.

This is the perfect place to explore the wonderful Quantocks. The Shepherds Hut is small and perfectly formed. Everything has been thought about from the robes for the hot tub, logs for the hot tub, underfloor heating in the Shepherds Hut for chilly nights.

Everything exceeded expectations!! Amazing property which I would recommend to anyone! The owners have thought of every little detail possible and I couldn't fault a single thing!! Hoping to go back asap :) Most wonderful weekend break we have ever had! Perfection!

A superb eye for detail, with almost everything you could think of being provided.

Wonderful setting amongst rolling Quantock Hills, if you're searching for some picturesque tranquility, this ticks the box.

Very helpful, hospitable and amicable host - would return in an instant. In fact, i probably will.
