Len is our luxury Shepherds Hut.
Our original Shepherds Hut, Len keeps creature comforts close by with full mains electricity, kitchen and full en suite shower room, with our wood fired eco hot tub adding that little something special.
Len can sleep up to 2 adults and 1 younger person
The ultimate glamping experience.
Come and take a look at what Len has to offer!
Unique Eco Hot Tub
Exclusively handmade in Sweden, the Hikki hot tub is perfect to share a wood fired outdoor experience, for a soak or to just unwind, whatever the weather. The stove quickly heats the tub to your preferred temperature, whilst you pour out the fizz and chill, watching the sun go down and the stars come out.
(Logs for hot tub use are inclusive of 1 bag per night booked)
Enjoy the outdoors for much longer around the fire pit, cook up a bush craft meal whilst telling stories and keeping toasty warm.
"Since we booked this holiday we have been counting down the days. The expectation was surpassed by Len! We have done so much in our time here but most of all we have relaxed and enjoyed the peace. Cooked steaks in the fire pit, watched deer in ‘our’ field and listened to the owls around us. Lit the stove and cooked (windows & doors open) and constantly found new things hidden away. Thank you Phil & making us so welcome."
"We loved staying in the cosy, warm hut, the fog, gales and the beating rain made it even more atmospheric. The attention to detail is amazing, and we had such fun opening all the draws and cupboards and being surprised at we found!
The books were apt and interesting and we loved the sheep memorabilia, there is so much packed into a small space and it still looks modern and uncluttered."
"Wow! It’s like the Tardis,you’ve packed in so much but it feels so spacious, and all done with so much thought and style. I think you’ve set the “gold standard” for glamping, and the en suite is wonderful. It’s a magical place, mysterious outside, with the mist at sunset, but the lights were on warm and welcoming like a secret cocoon."
Ultimate getaway from everything
Tor View Shepherds Huts are likely to be Somerset’s best kept secret, until now. Perched high up on the Mendip Hills overlooking Glastonbury Tor in the distance, there’s no sign and no doorbell. You can only get to the Huts after receiving an e-mail with your special code and directions.
Lovingly handcrafted and designed to inspire, every feature adds to the feeling of exclusive luxury.
Just a few years after opening, Tor View Shepherds Huts has already featured in Conde Nast Traveller, The Sunday Times, The London Evening Standard & The Times Travel Magazine, and hold the VisitEngland Gold Award.
An Abundance Of Comfort
Phil recognised that most of us are reluctant to give up the modern creature comforts we take for granted – so he carefully designed each hut to include everything you could wish for.
Luxury Mattress (with bed linen), en-suite shower with flushing toilet, fitted kitchen and wood burning stove. What more could you wish for?
Space to make yourself at home
The huts include absolutely everything and the clever design means that it feels surprisingly spacious – ingenious planning ensures that it all packs away neatly and you won’t be tripping over your bags at every turn. Last but not least the views are stunning, and the local area boasts a wealth of inviting things to see and do.
What is there to do?
It’s the perfect environment in which to escape from all the stresses and strains of the 21st century, to reconnect with nature and our heritage, and to make memories that will last a lifetime.
