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

Relaxing break, Stanley was stunning

A relaxing break to celebrate a birthday and anniversary. Stanley was stunning - well fitted out, clever layout and storage, cosy, and immaculately clean. Hosts were very friendly with great communication, and provided us with clear instructions on how to use everything, e.g. the amazing wood fired hot tub! Brilliant location for exploring Somerset - we enjoyed wonderful days out to Cheddar Gorge and Glastonbury Tor.

The Perfect Getaway

My boyfriend and I booked 'Stanley' for 3 nights for our anniversary and graduation celebrations. The Shepherd's hut was beautifully designed, and a really comfortable nights sleep! We loved the hot tub- it was private, and very easy to get going, staying warm into the next mornings. We had a guided tour of the estate with Rich and the dogs, which was fascinating and we couldn't believe how beautiful the it all was. We explored Ilminster, Exeter and some local walks- even kayaking along the canal near Bridgewater. The details we received prior to our visit were comprehensive and full of ideas for things to do, as well as instructions which were useful. We were really impressed with our whole stay, and would thoroughly recommend the huts to anyone!

Absolutely amazing stay!

Myself and my husband stayed for our wedding anniversary, was supposed to be in March but due to Covid had to move it forward which was done with ease! Arrived to a spotless hut, and was so surprised with all the amenities had everything you needed!! Rich helped us with a couple of things and was very helpful and loved saying hello to his two dogs who were very friendly. Hot tub was lovely and warm once heated and a welcome fixture enjoyed with a couple bottles of Prosecco! And didn’t take long the next day to reheat, even enjoyed in the rain. Bed was already made up and was so comfy. Went on a walk and visited a couple of pubs in Horton and Broadway. A much needed break and stress free and we will be returning for a definite! Thank you 😊

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.
