We allow small dogs to join you for £20 per stay, please bring your dog's bed for him/her to sleep on as they are not permitted on the furnishings, full terms & conditions are available below. Please note that while the garden is large enough for your pooch to roam and exercise in we do not guarantee it to be dog-proof if your furry friend is partial to escaping.
This Shepherd’s Hut combines the glamping experience with the convenience of a great foodie pub 'The White Horse' within a few hundred metres; some might call it ‘staggering distance’.
On Friday evenings we have Ham Hill Cider, a very rustic bar which is just over a mile away, a country walk or short drive (the owners have offered our guests a lift back to Esme's Escape after an evening of drinking). There is a great atmosphere at this farmyard venue and they serve other drinks, you don't have to drink cider if you don't want to. A real Somerset experience.
We are lucky to have a farm shop in the neighbouring village of North Perrott a mile down the road and the pretty market town of Crewkerne just 2 miles down the A30, full of local shops and cafes. The Haselbury Mill is within a mile as well, walking distance if you are attending a function there or wish to eat there during your stay.
