Shepherd’s Hut in Somerset with an outdoor bathtub: Uncover the enchanting magic of Len’s Hut, where days can be spent rambling the Mendip Hills and evenings unwinding in the steamy Scandinavian wood-fired tub.
Peace, tranquillity and a little touch of magic… Len’s Hut boasts otherworldly charm, where the two of you can switch off from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Perched atop a blissful meadow, high above the Mendip Hills, you’re promised spellbinding vistas across the Somerset Levels towards Glastonbury Tor. Pack your walking boots and you’ll soon discover the wealth of wonderful walks right on your doorstep. Your four-legged travel companion is warmly welcomed here, so no one has to miss out on the adventure! After, retreat back to your Somerset sanctuary for some fireside feasting, followed by a moonlit dip in the steamy Scandinavian wood-fired tub… sounds like the dreamiest date night to us!
Len’s Hut has been lovingly handcrafted by the thoughtful owners to encapsulate luxury and old school charm. Designed to inspire, the inside space hosts a sumptuous double bed, sweet kitchenette, warming wood burner and plenty of books to get stuck into on a rainy day! Wake to the chorus of birdsong, admire pastoral bliss through the window at the foot of the snuggly bed and simply savour these sweet moments. Rustle up breakfast for two and enjoy at the lovely table, or outside in the Somerset sun! The kitchenette is superbly equipped for your glamping getaway, complete with an electric cooker (2 ring hob and mini oven), small fridge and toaster. The charming wood burning stove will keep you toasty during those out of season escapes and there’s also a beautifully presented shower room within the hut.
The magic only continues outside… Spend sun-filled days soaking up the captivating rural view over gentle hills towards the majestic Glastonbury Tor. Your beloved pooch will adore roaming the meadow and joining you on countryside adventures! Moonlit moments become all the more magical in the dreamy Scandinavian wood-fired tub. This has to be our favourite feature, a unique way to sink deeper into the tranquillity of this serene setting. Afterwards, stoke the fire and experience cooking and dining in nature with the use of the Dutch oven, rustling up a starlit feast over flickering flames. You can also use the herbs from your own herb garden, and when livestock aren't grazing in the meadow, why not forage in the hedgerows for autumn blackberries and ripe sloes? Enjoy a soothing glass of red or marshmallow topped hot chocolate as the embers soften before heading inside and drifting off into a sweet slumber.
