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

September 2020

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

September 2020

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

August 2020

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.

August 2020

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

July 2020

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

February 2020

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

December 2019

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.

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.

October 2019

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!

September 2019

Lovely hosts and great little get away!

August 2019

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!

August 2019

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

September 2018

Great place, wonderful hosts very enjoyable stay indeed.

August 2018

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

July 2018

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.

July 2018

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!

May 2018

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

May 2018

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.

April 2018

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!

March 2018

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.

February 2018

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 :)

February 2018

Five star perfect for restful break with fantastic host

January 2018

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

November 2017

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.

September 2017

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.

August 2017

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.

July 2017

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!

May 2017

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 ?

April 2017

Great location, great hot tub, great hut!

April 2017

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

February 2017

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.

December 2016

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!!

November 2016

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.

October 2016

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! ??

September 2016

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!

August 2016

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!

August 2016

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 :)

August 2016

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.

July 2016

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

June 2016

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.

May 2016

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!

April 2016

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.
