Shepherd's Hut with hot tub in Somerset: This hand-crafted hut oozes elegant charm and is set in countryside bliss. With a wood-fired hot tub to unwind in, this really is a heavenly reatreat to nature.
Nestled in a corner of the owners' working farm and just a short drive from legendary Glastonbury, famous for its Tor, mythical history and of course yearly summer music festival, Collie is in the perfect position for exploring this mesmerizingly beautiful part of the world.
This luxurious shepherd's hut is finished to the highest quality. Climb into your lavish king-sized bed which is cleverly nestled behind hand-made curtains. From where you rest your head you look out to the serene landscape that surrounds your little wonder. You really will feel a world away from your everyday realities while staying in this humble abode. On cooler evenings light up the wood-burner and cosy in on the sofa while you tuck into a scrumptious cheese board and good glass of smooth red wine. The quality kitchen is a spacious design. You'll enjoy preparing a delicious mid-week brunch for your loved one. The shower-room has ample space and again is a gorgeous design.
On a balmy summer's eve, light up the wood-fired hot tub and hop in. Instantly feel a wave of relaxation flow through your body. Spend your evening star gazing and sharing special stories, as you reconnect under the moon light. Being so rural you are likely to be treated to some dreamy sunsets. Once you have watched the last rays of the day disappear, be sure to stay out around the fire-pit and cosy in under a blanket, with a mug of hot chocolate or a glass of your favourite.
The lovely owners are on site and are happy to answer any questions during your stay, but be sure to note your privacy is always respected. If you have a small four legged-friend (Jack Russell sized) then please feel free to bring them along for the adventure. The only neighbours you need to worry about at Collie are the oh so sweet Shetland ponies, who quietly graze in the field which your hideaway looks upon.
