This well-presented shepherd’s hut is the perfect destination for you and your loved one, with wonderful, far reaching views of the surrounding countryside.

Enjoy the simple life and indulge in a stay at The Hut. Designed to look like a traditional shepherd’s hut, this cosy accommodation is ideal for those wanting to try something different. The Hut is positioned in a field with wonderful, far reaching views towards Minehead and the surrounding countryside. The Hut has an open plan living and sleeping area, basic kitchen and a shower room with toilet. Outside there is a garden with seating area and a fire pit, ideal for sitting out of an evening and enjoying a glass of wine whilst staring at the stars. The Hut is located within the Exmoor National Park boundaries and guests will find superb scenery and walking on the South West Coastal Path or inland on Exmoor. The Victorian villages of Lynmouth and Lynton are famous for the Watersmeet Gorge (National Trust) and the valley of the rocks and the funicular cliff railway. Looking towards Minehead, there is the promenade to enjoy a walk with an ice cream as well as the shops and other amenities. The West Somerset Railway is worth a visit for those with an interest in stream engines. Why not head over to the National Trust Dunster Castle and village, with its beautiful terraced gardens, Deer Park and Mill will make for an interesting day out as well as Porlock Weir. There are further beaches at Dunster and Porlock. Shop, pub and restaurant 2 miles.

    It said there was WiFi but on arrival I was told ‘We don’t provide WiFi for The Hut’. The electric coolbox is pretty useless and very noisy, so has to be turned off at night. Welcome pack is a pint of milk and a packet of biscuits. The view is superb but make sure you bring your own fold-away chairs to enjoy it.

    The setting of this accommodation is amazing, the views are lovely and the sun rises right through the front window making it a pleasure to “rise and shine”. It is small with some limitations on equipment so visitors need to accept that it is a bit like camping - little storage, no oven, no proper fridge and no TV. Also there are animals nearby so some country smells and flies although they weren’t so bad during my stay despite the hot weather. The bed was comfy, it was very clean and came with all the other bits and pieces one needs for self catering. It would certainly suit a couple who like to eat out and don’t mind living out of a suitcase. The area and the setting make up for the limitations and its great to see the animals. Peaceful and relaxing for sure.

    Lets face it, if you book this hut you are doing so because you want an unusual experience which will reconnect you with nature, not give you a luxury break in the country. You could get local bed and breakfast nearer to local amenities and pay less, BUT you wouldn't wake up to a spectacular view across the valley to the distant hills. Nor would you have the chance to sit gazing at the stars on your own private terrace with a fire burning, a glass of wine in your hand and the sounds of the country (lengthy silences interspersed with the odd cow mooing, Cockerel crowing or sheep bleating) all around. Nor would you have the experience of snuggling down at night with a cup of something warm and knowing that no-one is going to be bustling down the corridor outside, clumping around in neighbouring rooms, talking loudly or making frequent, noisy visits to the bathroom at all hours. Such isolation isn't to everyone's taste, but if it is your idea of paradise, you wont find much better.

    A real getaway from the rat race. Stunning views in the day and the stars are amazing at night.

    Would have been perfect except the 4.30 alarm call from the cockeral
