The setting for this beautifully designed and fitted shepherd's hut is a celebration of what this kind of experience is all about. The gentle valley location is at the western edge of the Mendip Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, the farm is a site of Special Scientific Interest, and Lady's Well Shepherd's Hut – with the name taken from the natural spring that feeds the beautiful deep natural pond here – is in its own 'oasis' with a fully enclosed garden, a jetty for dangling your feet into the pond, your own private hot tub (complete with MP3 player fitting) and views across the sea as far as South Wales from the viewing platform at the top of the fields.
The farm used to be part of the ancient Hutton Estate and the original manor house can be glimpsed across the fields through the trees. This lovely sweep of the valley is fringed by woodland and attracts a wonderful range of wildlife. There is even a living willow hide from which you might be lucky enough to see deer, foxes, badgers, in addition to the buzzards that circle on the thermals overhead and the kingfishers that visit the pond.
Once you have parked, it's a short walk across an orchard and field to get to its fabulous setting (cart provided for your luggage)! Inside it has a very comfortable king-size bed, shower-room with a proper heated shower, flushing WC and heated towel rail, a wood-burner, under-floor heating, facilities for cooking with all the equipment that you will need for your glamping holiday and even 4G broadband.
Lady's Well Shepherd's Hut is set well away from the farmstead so you will feel very private and peaceful. Down in the village, just a short stroll away, there is a village pub, shop and Chinese takeaway. For a change of scenery you can set off to the long sandy beach at Weston-super-mare just three miles away at the bottom of the valley where you can look across the sea to the tiny wildlife islands of Flatholm and Steepholm. The Victorian pier and the long promenade are great for strolling on a warm summer's day or even on a blustery out-of-season one to blow the cobwebs away!
Whatever the time of year the hut is as snug as can be with its under-floor heating and a little wood-burning stove to add wonderful character on chilly evenings. On hot summer's days though, you can laze away the day to your heart's content on the comfortable sun loungers in peace and tranquility. After dusk the mood lighting beneath the hut will set the scene for a magical evening and a dip in the hot tub really is a fantastic way to end the day. You are welcome to fish in the pond which is about 10 feet deep, but all fish must be safely returned to the water.
If you fancy a luxury glamping holiday with your horse, for an extra cost, the Owner can offer DIY livery (with haylage, grazing and parking for your horsebox) and also available for an extra cost is lockable boat storage, both these extras can be arranged direct with the Owners.
