About Jordans Estate Glamping

Suitable For

Adults only. No camping, kids or dogs.


For walkers and cyclists, the Somerset Levels and Blackdown Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty are easily accessible from the Estate. The latter are visible from the window of the hut and can be explored via the 30km Here Path Trail, while the former's unique landscape is an important habitat for a diverse range of birdlife – be sure to check out the nearby RSPB reserves. A 45 minute drive will get you to the world-famous Jurassic Coast the highlights of which include picturesque Lulworth Cove and Lyme Regis. The awe-inspiring national parks of Dartmoor and Exmoor are also both under an hour away. Historic sites worth a visit include the ruins of Muchelney Abbey, the medieval Priest's House, Muchelney and, of course, slightly further afield lies the iconic Stonehenge

Superb glamping experience, shepherds huts 1st class accommodation, stayed with friends for 2 nights in both huts

We were very fortunate with the weather, hot and sunny all weekend, stayed 2 nights for Friday to Sunday. Friends had stayed last September in one of the huts and love it, so we arranged a weekend with them using both shepherds huts, great fun, we loved it. I am disabled and the owner Ed has kindly added a handrail to the Livingstone Shepherds Hut making climbing the stairs much easier. The hut was spotless , well equipped, bed comfortable. we sat by a roaring log fire both evenings, well after the sun went down, the hot tub was used then, we used the pizza oven on the Saturday night. There is clear instructions prior to staying how to work everything. The location is lovely, on a field around the corner from the farm, loads of birds visiting and ate from the bird feeders, including a woodpecker! we had lunch on the Friday before arriving to the George, Doyatt in Illminster which was delicious food, landlady lovely too. We went to Lyme Regis on the Saturday, about 40 minutes drive. I would highly recommend it, out first glamping experience, great fun doing it with friends using both shepherds huts, we will definitely return.

Works for Solos too!!

Like so many other single women I was desperate for a break when I chanced upon this. I booked 3 nights and enjoyed walking, reading and bird watching. The owls can be a bit noisy at night! Breakfast at the cafe on Sunday was delicous. Do bring an os map with you, hard to get your bearings without. I didn't bother with the hot tub but enjoyed a pamper spa and sauna afternoon indoors. The little wood stove is very efficient. Came home refreshed, tested and ready for the final chapter in a testing year. Thanks Em and Richard for your patience!!

Best fun of 2020 so far!

Best 2 nights away of 2020! Though the weather wasn’t the best, this did not dampen our fun. The shepherds hut was amazing, clean, very comfortable with everything you would need. Our hosts were very friendly and nothing was to much trouble. The hot tub was in constant use, great fun relaxing in even while the rain came down, a great experience! Will definitely visit again, a great couple nights away to relax and hide away!

Amazing weekend break!

I recently stayed in one of the shepherd's huts for two nights, the only thing wrong was that I hadn't booked a third - it was absolutely perfect! Inside the hut there's everything you could need, we didn't venture too far into Ilminster as the weather was so nice, so we just sat outside the hut all afternoon or took a dip in the hot tub. Information and instructions were provided in advance via email, which was really helpful to refer back to. We loved it so much we've already agreed to go back again next year. Thanks for having us!

Absolutely wonderful

Recently stayed in the Livingstone shepherds hut, had a wonderful short break. The hut in itself is absolutely beautiful and all the facilities around the hut easy accessible. Beautiful location and very peaceful, close to the coast, Perfect location. Highly recommend this to couples of any age preference, it’s a nice get away, great value for money. Over all thoroughly enjoyed myself and would return again.
