About your stay

We would really love to meet you and share the Esme’s Escape experience with you. We have created a nostalgic 1940’s land-girl space with little luxuries to make your stay very comfortable.

And there’s more:

Where possible, and when needed, we will light the fire for your arrival so that your stay is cosy from the off.

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 The Cider Barn 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.

Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions or requests.
