Our light and airy hut has a calm, relaxing feel, and is a great space to chill out in and we are very happy to be able to share this with you.

With some clever design, in a space measuring just 7' by 15' there is somewhere to sleep, eat, cook and wash - amazing!

When you climb up the steps into the hut, you will find a comfy raised double bed 4' high accessed from the side using pull-out steps with lots of neat storage hidden underneath. There is a feather duvet & pillows, cotton bedding and ample cushions.

The ensuite bathroom has an electric shower, washhand basin, heated towel rail, flushing loo and plenty of fluffy towels & toiletries for you to use.

The fully equipped compact kitchen has all you need to cater for yourselves with a combination microwave oven, hob, fridge, sink and a small selection of pots & pans, utensils and crockery along with 'do-it-yourself' breakfast supplies including milk, bread, butter, eggs, jams, honey & marmalade, cereals, muesli, teas, coffee, hot chocolate as well as oils and S&P.

You can enjoy a jug of freshly cut flowers on the window sill from my ever expanding flower patch!

There are a couple of folding chairs and a pull-out table and a radio, selection of board games, books and magazines.

The hut is fully heated and insulated with sheeps wool so you'll feel lovely and cosy inside no matter what the weather is doing outside. 

Guests have sole use of the orchard area which is about a third of an acre. It’s very private and enclosed with uninterrupted views from the far end looking across the fields towards Exmoor, you have your very own wood-fire hot tub to enjoy too!

Outside, there are tables and chairs, BBQ, fire pit, and a supply of logs and coals is included and blankets to help extend your evening keeping you cosy whilst enjoying the view!

We get excellent clear skies perfect for star gazing. And this being Owl Street, listen out for the hoots and also look out for the bats, badgers, hedgehogs, buzzards and birds who are all frequent visitors!

All you need to do is get here, sit back and relax!
And if there is anything we can do for you either beforehand or during your stay to ensure you have an even better visit, we are only too happy to help.

About Stocklinch Shepherd’s Hut

A hand-crafted shepherd's hut in purposefully planted orchard, with great views, wonderful privacy and a wood-fired hot tub to use

Nestled at the bottom of a hill is Stocklinch, a peaceful Somerset village surrounded by farmland in the perfect position for exploring the gentle unspoilt south somerset countryside or for heading further afield to Lyme Regis & the Jurassic Coast for some sea air or heading inland to the Quantock & Exmoor Hills to experience Somerset's more rugged, wild side.

From the steps of the hut you can enjoy many gentle walks and cycles exploring the hidden sunken lanes and expansive views across Somerset. And in the immediate area there are many heritage properties and gardens including NT Barrington Court which is only a short walk over the hill. In this corner of Somerset there are numerous pretty Market Towns and welcoming pubs to explore and discover.

One of the very first things we did when we moved into The Old Post Office was to plant hundreds of trees in our field so you'll find the hut in a very private spot tucked away in about a third of an acre of orchard, surrounded by willows and other native trees & hedging. However we were careful not to plant anything that would get in the way of the wonderful uninterrupted views across the fields looking towards the Blackdown, Brendon and Quantock Hills with distant glimpses of Exmoor.

We regularly get excellent clear skies making this the perfect spot to take in the stars. And this being Owl Street, listen out for the hoots and also look out for the bats, badgers, hedgehogs, buzzards and birds who are all frequent visitors!

Our hut was lovingly and carefully built for us by Matt's brother, Jim, carpenter extraordinaire & perfectionist, who with some very clever design, in a space measuring just 7' by 15', managed to squeeze in somewhere for you to sleep, eat, cook and wash - amazing!

Your comfort is very important to us! So you'll find a super comfy mattress, feather divers and pillows, cotton bedding, cushions, blankets and lots of fluffy towels. And the hut is packed with all sorts of useful bits and bobs that you might need to make your stay even better!

Outside the wood-fired hot tub is perfect for an al fesco soak in the sun or under the stars!

We are only to happy to help if there is something you would like us to organise for you beforehand or during your visit to make your time here even better!

So whether you are spending time with your loved one or simply taking time out for a bit of R&R, we hope you will be able to enjoy a relaxing break and appreciate the comforts the hut has to offer.
