Jordan's Estate Glamping
Jordans Glamping, Shrubbery Farmhouse, Ilminster, Somerset TA19 9LA
Situated on the edge of the Somerset Levels, the historic Jordan’s Estate is the tranquil setting for Rich and Em Speke’s private luxury glamping experience. Comprising two self-contained shepherd's hut, this adults-only retreat is the perfect destination for couples seeking solace from the frenetic modern world.
There’s a calm and leisurely pace to life on the Estate. Most of the time, your nearest neighbours are the deer that emerge from the 100 acre woodland to the dew-drenched fields at dawn. A former dairy farm, the cows have given way to a scattering of sheep and agrarian fields of seasonal crops. So for any city slickers yearning for an authentic slice of rural life, this is the real deal.
While suitably rustic in setting, the shepherds huts themselves are a masterclass in comfort having been handcrafted on site by the esteemed Blackdown Shepherds Hut Company. A double bed, fully-equipped kitchen, en suite bathroom (with toilet and shower), and wood-burning stove sees to it that guests want for nothing, and plans are also afoot for private wood-burning hot tubs. The extra little touches like a vase full of wildflowers from the Estate grounds, plus board games and maps of local walks show an admirable attention to detail. And with the Blackdown Hills (an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty) tantalisingly visible from thecomfort of the cabins, the latter will be put to good use.
