-- Luxury Shepherd's Hut --
We take the risk of coronavirus very seriously, recently winning a 'Safe2Stay' award based entirely on our COVID safety procedures. In our personal lives we have had limited contact with the outside world since March 2020, the few times we have socialised it has been outside and at a good distance. Between each guest we remove all the bedding and towels etc. while wearing PPE then sanitize the Shepherd's Hut with Safe2Stay products before cleaning thoroughly. We also make sure all the cutlery and crockery are clean before taking in the clean bedding etc and dressing the accommodation for our next guests. Our Guidebook is now available on a tablet and we welcome our guests across the gate at a good social distance.
Welcome To Esme's Escape
Luxury Shepherd's Hut & Hot Tub
A luxurious glamping experience steeped in 1940's nostalgia with the added convenience of a short walk to the pub.
A multi award winning, Luxurious, Land-Girl inspired Shepherd's Hut with hot tub nestled in the heart of the picturesque village of Haselbury Plucknett in South Somerset. Esme's Escape offers the unique opportunity to combine the glamping experience with the convenience of walking just 2-3 minutes to the local pub for a delicious meal. Perfectly located to enjoy the Somerset Levels, the Jurassic Coastline and many local historically interesting villages and towns. You can choose to see the sights, partake in local courses or simply relax, enjoy the facilities, including the hugely popular log-fired Hot Tub and soak up Esme & Fred's wartime love story.
