The Owner Says

If you are looking for a taste of the outdoors without the poles, pegs and mallet set-up, the Shepherd’s Hut is a must.

Stylishly hand-built locally in the Mendip hills, this well-insulated hut comes kitted out with four double mattresses and a similar sized area to sit and chat.

The Shepherds Hut accommodates up to 8 people and measures 3.5m x 5.5m (11.5ft x 18.0ft). The hut is made of natural timbers, insulated with sheep' wool and topped off with an authentic tin roof. Heating is provided.

All cooking is done outdoors next to a round table that seats 8 - we suggest you bring a gazebo at no extra charge.

There are hot showers in spacious cabins and toilets located in the main field.

Drinking water is available from numerous taps throughout the campsite and you can also connect to the WIFI too.

Dogs are welcome with an additional charge of £3 (you can book these from the extras menu).

Campfires are encouraged and fire-pits hired for £2 per night, logs purchased for £6, kindling for £2 and £1 for paper and fire-lighters

Please do not bring your own firewood as we need to know what's being burnt.

A £100 Damage deposit will be requested at the time of booking which is refundable upon inspection prior to departure

When you arrive at the reception you can hire additional extras such as towels, sleeping bags, camping beds and cables. If you wish to venture from the campsite and visit Cheddar Village or Cheddar Gorge be sure to pick up a brochure at the reception.

A live-and-let-live place where there are refreshingly few rules, kids can be kids, campfires are encouraged, music and bad singing are not a problem and people feel free to wander round making new friends.
