Weekend from    £115 per night

Premium dates are available at a higher price

 Two night minimum stay 

As we are now able to travel for holidays we have looked into how to safely accommodate our guests, in particular the guidelines for bio-security.  As a result we have taken on advice that our Shepherd's Hut should remain empty for 72 hours after guests have departed. We will then deep clean before the next guests arrive, using appropriate PPE and bleach.

Our booking calender has been updated to accommodate these gaps. If you wish to arrive/leave on a day which is showing as unavailable but which would still allow for our 72 hour window please do contact us to check availability.  We have also opened up our calendar for 2021 as 2020 is already almost fully booked.

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 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.
