There is an en suite bathroom with shower, toilet and wash basin, plus a kitchenette with 2-ring hob, fridge and a dining table (utensils included). A welcome pack of tea, coffee, milk and a cake is provided, as well as complimentary logs for the wood burner and firepit outside. There is also a pizza oven and BBQ available.
ActivitiesFor walkers and cyclists, the Somerset Levels and Blackdown Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty are easily accessible from the Estate. The latter are visible from the window of the hut and can be explored via the 30km Here Path Trail, while the former's unique landscape is an important habitat for a diverse range of birdlife – be sure to check out the nearby RSPB reserves. A 45 minute drive will get you to the world-famous Jurassic Coast the highlights of which include picturesque Lulworth Cove and Lyme Regis. The awe-inspiring national parks of Dartmoor and Exmoor are also both under an hour away. Historic sites worth a visit include the ruins of Muchelney Abbey, the medieval Priest's House, Muchelney and, of course, slightly further afield lies the iconic Stonehenge.
