“What a well thought out unique and marvellous bolt hole. Perfect for a mini adventure away from the fast-paced, stressy day-to-day lifestyle”

The Journalist – Ted – February 2017

Comments from recent guests

WOW! Ted we love you! What a well thought out unique and marvellous bolt hole. Perfect for a mini adventure away from the fast-paced, stresey day-to-day lifestyle. We enjoyed cooking on the hob and tucking into our steaks and veg and a nice glass of wine on our first night.

We were tucked up in - bed with no telly to distract us by 10pm.After a fabulous night’s sleep with fresh air flowing through our window as the wood burner was doing its job keeping us very toasty. We awoke to misty morning. But by the time we had gently woken up and had tea in bed and a nice fry up the mist lifted and we set off for our walk across the fields to Wells. The mist lifted to reveal a stunning sunny day and after a few wrong turns and tracking back we saw Wells Cathedral in all its stunning glory.

A great walk that worked an appetite! We had lunch at the Crown Hotel - film location for Poldark and Hot Fuzz - before heading back to light the hot tub. We had all four fires going – hot tub fire pit oven and Ted’s wood burning stove by 7 pm - my husband was in his element. Whilst dinner cooked we opened the fizz and relaxed in the hot tub - surprising how hot you can feel outdoors in February! A lovely memorable experience and perfect for couples to spend time to reconnect – without the kids or a special weekend away thankyou Phil and Amanda for thinking of everything perfect.

The Journalist - Ted - February 2017

Thank you for a lovely stay, you’re really created a wonderful cosy but spacious hut, with everything we’ve needed. The indoor fire and hot tub have been great additions, Lens Hut is a great base to explore from and hideaway. We will defiantly look to come back again in the future.
J&O Norfolk (Lens Hut January 2022)

We had a lovely stay in Teds Hut it was the perfect break we needed. the hut isa great size and was cosy and warm. The hot tub was a bonus we will be coming back Phil and Amanda have been very accommodating.
H&J Wales (Teds Hut December 2021)

So, we enjoyed the hut so much we didn’t leave! Amazing time, lovely atmosphere and an anniversary trip to remember! Thankyou Phil for the help with the hot tub.
B&F Dorset (Teds Hut November 2021)

We have had a fabulous few days here in Lens Hut we had everything we needed and more. The wood burner kept us cosy and warm in the evenings we visited Wells and the Fleet Air Museum, and we did a lovely walk from Len, we have thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would love to return.
F&A Midlands (Lens Hut October 2021)

Everybody needs a Ted in their life. Thank you for a truly relaxing and enjoyable few days perfection!
L&A Cornwall ( Teds Hut September 2021)

A little slice of heaven, we stayed in Ted Hut for our honeymoon and cannot fault our experience. We enjoyed cooking a variety of meals outside, the pizza oven is amazing, better than a restaurant pizza we’ve tried. The outdoor bath was dreamy and loved star gazing at night.
Beautiful county walks, we visited Wells twice as we loved it so much the first time, Phil was so welcoming, helpful and knowledgeable and he has thought of everything, it may be tiny but is so well equip we didn’t want for anything. We are sad to be leaving and heading back home to the reality of our busy lives, but we will be back for sure thank you for a lovely unforgettable stay and magical experience. (P.S forgot to say the most comfortable bed I’ve ever slept on!)
C&A Sussex (Teds Hut August 2021)

We have had such a lovely stay here at Lens Hut, we have thoroughly enjoyed making the most of what is on offer here, especially the Dutch oven, we cooked ourselves a lamb shank, pulled pork and mussels in a white wine sauce and apple crumble!!
Thank you so much, what you have here is beautiful it’s been a lovely first getaway for us both.
A&J Surry (Lens Hut July 2021)

Thankyou Ted for another amazing stay, we spent our time outside either in the hot tub or sat by the fire pit looking out for wildlife, this time we saw deer hares and jays. Also took a trip out to the Newt just passed Castle Cary, well worth the visit. Thanks Phil and Mandy see you again soon.
J&J Somerset (Teds Hut June 2021)

LOVED every second!! The views are incredible and even spotted a couple of deers which was amazing, we would 100% come back. Wells Cathedral WOW.
A&D WALES (Lens Hut May 2021)

LOCATION PERFECT, ACCOMADTION PERFECT, HOT TUB PERFECT, WEATHER PERFECT, EVERYTHING IS JUST ABOUT PERFECT. Whilst sat in the hot tub watching the red glow of the late evening sun with my gorgeous wife, two Roe Deer a couple of Cock Pheasants and Tawney Owl were within 100 yards of us, totally unphased by our presence. There really cannot be a lovelier place to stay in the British Isles. (Those shepherds had it good in the old days)
S&J East Sussex (Teds Hut April 2021)

Comments from our previous guests in 2020

What can we say that we haven’t already said? We are regular visitors to Ted, although not as often as we would like. Ted has everything you could want and need, Phil and Amanda have covered EVERYTHING and are the most PERFECT hosts. It has been a difficult and unexpected year and Ted is the break we desperately needed. We spent wonderful long days sat outside by the fires and even longer evenings in the hot tub .Our last evening was blessed with a deer visiting as we soaked away our worries thank you Phil and Amanda.
Have a lovely Christmas and we can’t wait for next year. Roll on 2021.
C&M Worcestershire (Teds Hut December 2020)

We’ve had the most lovely stay at this hut and I could not have wished for a more relaxed and calm start to my 25th birthday. The hot tub was so cosy despite the stormy and rainy weather. Len made us feel sheltered and comfortable through the weather. We would come back in a heartbeat and we hope that Phil and Mandy will be able to sustain this slice of heaven thought out these difficult times. Thanks for creating this and all the best.
M&H London (Lens Hut November 2020)

A wonderful stay, a great adventure. We felt so comfortable and safe and we respect that just every small need had been thought of and provided for . Good weather not required here, just as any weather can be endured when you feel so comfortable, loved it we shall be back !
S&T Hampshire (Lens Hut October 2020)

We are no strangers to Tor View Shepherds Huts but this was our first visit to Ted.We were not disappointed both huts are fully equipment and the attention to detail is always spot on. Due to Covid we were meant to have been earlier in the year, but we are grateful for the delay as we couldn’t have asked nicer weather, thanks again for a beautiful stay we will be back.
H&D Devon (Teds Hut September)

Had a fabulous 7 nights here and don’t want to leave. Has been a lovely switch off from all technology and relax . Love all the lovey touches to the hut and a perfect location .Thank you so much.
J&E Surrey (Teds Hut August 2020)

What away to spend a Birthday we’ve had the most incredible stay in the hut, the perfect way to relax and unwind after a looooong 4 months of being an essential key worker, thanks to the peace and hot tub, I couldn’t feel more re charged! Highly recommend a trip to Cheddar Gorge if it’s your first time in Somerset. We will defiantly be back!
P&L London (Lens Hut July 2020)

The May Bank Holiday weekend was fast approaching, I considered our options for a quick getaway over the bank holiday there was so much choice during the Covid 19 lockdown, so I decided to visit Lens Hut for a few days, it did not take me long to settle in to my hut as Phil was in Teds hut again. I had brought some reading books to read also I brought my cross stich with me to make my NHS rainbow and not forgetting the TV guide magazine just so that I didn’t miss my favourite TV programmes during my stay. I felt very at home at Lens Hut especially outside, I really enjoyed the day bed seating area with I found quite secluded with the hedge lines to either side of me.

I found Lens Hut inside electric oven great for making simple meals especially the full English breakfasts which we both ate outside when Phil popped over in the morning from Teds Hut. Each night I had a pleasant night’s sleep on the firm mattress, followed by a hot shower before I made myself an herbal tea. I found the wood fired hot tub very relaxing especially as Phil had fully prepared the hot tub for me. From my privileged hot tub location I could view the bridle path in the far distance which is about a quarter of mile away as the crow flies, I watched the horses trot pass with their riders and several walkers taking advantage of the great weather conditions then.
Looking forward to another visit maybe later this year.
Mandy and Phil Somerset the properties of (Lens Hut May 2020 Covid 19 lockdown)

Well this was to be our very first unplanned staycation here in our own huts Len and Ted during the COVID 19 lockdown. After we had dealt with all existing customers bookings that needed to be altered due to the lock down, myself and Mandy then set about packing our bags and loading up the wheel barrows with plenty of provisions and clothes for our mammoth stay at home staycation as that what Prime Minster Boris said, it took us just under 5 minutes to arrive at our chosen huts from our home.

Mandy had chosen Lens hut as it has a TV, Mandy does like her TV soaps and I had chosen Teds hut as it had the outside wood fired oven as I like to cook a meal with a glass of wine to hand.Yep that is right we both had a hut each during the glorious sunny April. We had no dates or plans to return back home unless we ran out ice for the [email protected] or I needed to complete work, in total I spent nearly two weeks in Teds hut. Mandy joined me each day for our alfresco come dining themed nights, we had pizza night, steak, night and jacket potatoes night the list goes on. The wood fired hot tub was often used to warm the water to a cool 30C to keep us cool during the daytime sun which was up to 26C in April. Even though we were self-isolating we had plenty of visits from the roe deer that often visit Teds hut. During my staycation I observed a couple minor improves that we will be introducing later this year, we are planning a return trip hopefully next time it’s not when we are in lockdown.
Phil and Mandy Somerset the properties of (Teds Hut April 2020 Covid 19 lockdown)

Thanks for having us, great place to be for what may be the last chance to get out in to the countryside for a few months to come all the best for your business.
J&R London (Teds Huts March 2020)

What a glorious place! Peaceful relaxing and the hot tub is total bliss, lovely to see stonechats birds in the field from the hot tub. Can’t wait to return when there may be a starry night to explore. This was our 6 months anniversary incredibly romantic. We will be back!
J&J Manchester (Lens Hut February 2020)

Fantastic Birthday weekend treat away!
Everything had been thoroughly thought of. Luscious Len really did have it all. Hot tub was amazing see you in the summer.
L&S Wales (Lens hut January 2020)

Comments from our previous guests in 2019

Len has been a pleasure! We stayed for 3 nights with the late checkout which we would defiantly recommend, arrived on the Friday in plenty of time for my birthday on Sunday – what a treat! Endured a 2 hour walk to the George inn Saturday, trekking back in the dark to our beautiful heated hot tub at a toasty 38 degrees. We will most certainly be returning at some point in the near future, what an adventure thank you Len.
B&L Gloucestershire (Lens hut December 2019)

End of our 2 night stay and Ted is absolutely gorgeous. Waking up in the morning with those stunning views. Sitting in the hot tub under the stars, watching the fireworks display was amazing Ted was everything we wanted plus more.
S&R Kent (Teds Hut November 2019)

An excellent stay in Lens Hut. Our first night was on the damp side, so we played dominos and drank wine whilst listing to music, our second evening was perfect hot tub conditions clear skies for star gazing in the hot tub for hours ABSOLUTE BLISS! We will be back, thanks for the weekend stay.
F&P Dorset (Lens Hut October 2019)

The longer we are here the more we came to realise how much thought and planning has gone in to Ted, we really appreciated just how private Ted is we were undisturbed and able to just spend time together for our stay, we are already talking about coming back. The thing about Ted is that it really has everything you need, before you even knew you needed it, brilliant holiday.
P.S star gazing from the hot tub is recommended.
S&B London (Teds Hut September 2019)

A wonderful 3 nights in Len! This is the best place to relax unwind and rest. So good to get away from our busy lives. The hot tub is AMAZING! We have loved watching the sun go down whilst relaxing and enjoying the view. Len is just PERFECT! Has everything you need.
J&E Cambridgeshire (Lens Hut August 2019)

What a magical setting and part of the world Teds Hut is situated in, we made good use of the pizza oven and outside wood fired bath what a fantastic addition we certainly will return and recommend to friends Great Hosts!
H&R London (Teds Hut July 2019)

Len was everything I hoped it would be and more. Even the torrential rain couldn’t keep us out of the hot tub. Len has everything you need. The extra touches make the stay even more memorable, we rang Phil for a minor issue and he was here within minutes problem resolved. Had a lovely meal at the George Inn great value and went on steam train absolutely wonderful weekend thank you.
T&M Berkshire (Lens Hut June 2019)

Ted you’ve been an absolute treat! I booked this getaway as a surprise for Ben’s birthday it has been everything and more, the weather has been great the hot tub is AMAZING and the bed so comfy, everything has been perfect already looking forward to coming back.
C&B Hampshire (Teds Hut May 2019)

Wow, what a wonderful thing Ted is. We had such a great stay. Top marks for the bed, stunning views and top marks for the eco hot tub. We’ve turned ourselves into pair of wrinkly prunes. Thankfully the sun is out so we can dry out and return to what we normally look like. Seriously thought, what an amazing place. Would love to come back and I will tell all my friends about it. Thank you.
D&K Bristol (Teds Hut April 2019)

Beautiful and relaxing, me and my husband have thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Great choice of entertainment in the cabin and outside, Cheddar Gorge is a fantastic walk, even better when enjoying a hot tub season after! Feel very welcomed thank you very much.
Z&A Worcestershire (Lens Hut March 2019)

This is our second visit to Tor View Shepherds Huts, we stayed in Ted on our first visit. Both huts are the best place to just get away from a busy day to day life that we lead. We arrived just after 4.00 pm on Monday the 11th of February, Unpacked and my boyfriend handed me a card and inside it asked if I would marry him! Of course I said YES as he was down on one knee in front of me.

He had been emailing Phil to ensure everything went to plan. I couldn’t have asked for a better start to our little break. The place is amazing and true hideaway gem. We will be back, Tor View holds a very special place in our hearts. Thanks, Phil Amanda see you in the summer.
R&P Cambridgeshire (Lens Hut February 2019)

We had an incredible time at Ted’s hut! Beautiful spot, hot tub and pizza oven were fantastic! We really enjoyed our adventure here and would defiantly love to come back! Thank you.
M&S London (Teds Hut January 2019)

Comments from our previous guests in 2018

This is our 3rd visit to Len and the peace and beauty never cease to amaze us. We both live such busy, hectic lives, it’s like a little taste of welcome seclusion with just us we need to think about. Where else could you go and feel the cold rain on your face, while sitting and relaxing in a steaming wood-fired hot tub! Phil and Mandy, once again a massive thanks for the opportunity to completely escape and recharge.
H&D Devon (Lens Hut December 2018)

I surprised my other half for his birthday! Ted was absolutely phenomenal! We originally booked 2 nights but we had to book an extra night, it was so good. We realised so much that we take for granted and it made us both appreciate and respect the natural world a lot more! So peaceful and tranquil! No TV, No other technology other than a radio playing in the background, getting absolutely lost in the most overwhelming environment! Taking everything in, gazing at the stars, mesmerised by the local deer; right in front of Ted! Ted definitely suited us both and we both came back revitalised and refreshed but very sad to leave. We will be back very shortly for longer! Ted has so much inside we didn’t have time to explore outside. We want to thank yourself and Amanda for letting us experience such a beautiful shepherds hut to us both.
H&C Lincolnshire (Teds Hut November 2018)

Turns relaxation up to an 11 – We’ve had an utterly magical stay this weekend, everything has been perfect. Sitting in the hot tub staring up at the stars was just incredible while listening to the Wurzels recored, this was something else entirely. Sunday lunch we visited Hartley’s kitchen, eccentric is one word for it and the trio of roasts was excellent. Thanks Phil & Mandy for an incredible place to stay, we will be back.
K&M Yorkshire (Lens Hut October 2018)

Once again we have had an amazing & relaxing weekend. Layin in the hot tub in the dark listening to the owls is something you would be hard press to find elsewhere. Phil was equally as welcoming as he was during our first stay. Highly recommend the Mendip Inn for an evening meal – stunning, we will be back again.
D&H Devon (Lens Hut September 2018)

Our story at “Lens”, we arrived while England was in the middle of very welcome heatwave and during the world cup held in Russia. Coming from the “Big Smoke“ it was complete heaven to arrive here in a part of the world that we love.

Len was beautiful, magical, romantic and the outside was amazing. We had 4 nights here and we didn’t feel the need to go out in the evening during our stay. We just wanted to be at Lens and relish the beautiful hot tub and cook outside. When we forced ourselves to leave to see the beautiful city of Wells and of course Glastonbury Tor, but we were constantly clockwatching to get back to Len. Absolute heaven on earth with the best weather ever.

We had such a lovely few days away. Ted is awesome with everything you need. We made full use of the hot tub and outside oven, time certainly slowed down whilst we have been here. Thank-you Phil & Amanda for creating a peace of heaven.
J&S Surry (Teds Hut August 2018)

I have a huge tear as we leave Len behind, we will be back!
M&D London (Lens hut July 2018)

One again a fantastic stay at Tor View it now feels like home from home with how relaxed we are from the moment we arrived.
Looking forward to returning just after Christmas, thanks again!
H&B Cornwall (Lens Hut June 2018)

Had a great much needed, relaxing weekend in Ted. The attention to detail was faultless, having everything we would possibly need. The weather was also very kind to us! We have already planned our next trip back, probably in autumn – winter time.
N&M Hampshire (Teds Hut May 2018)

Thank you so much for an amazing weekend. From the website it looked amazing but upon arrival it was even better than we ever imagined. So much thought clearly goes into every aspect of the hut, from the flower and chocolate, to the books and board games. We had perfect weather but we would have enjoyed it at any time of year.
B&C Dorset (Lens Hut April 2018)

Ted, the views and fab hosts, Phil & Amanda have made our little stay truly perfect! We have slept well, eaten lots of chocolate & mastered lighting fires! We will miss this beautiful place, especially the hot tub.
L&C Sussex (Teds Hut March 2018)

We love Len, our little piece of English countryside paradise! Once again we are so relaxed and we don’t won’t to leave! We love the updates and the new additions, shame the weather didn’t let us enjoy the new outdoor seat and table (I am sure be back again to enjoy it) our hat trick stay did not disappoint and we will be back again. Len has everything we need we even managed to get the BBQ out and get in the hot tub every night. Thank you once again, Phil, Amanda and of course Len.
A&R Cambridgeshire (Lens hut February 2018)

This was our fourth visit to Ted, this is a testament to how much we love it here. Its peaceful, has absolutely everything we need and it is a small oasis of escape from the normal hub bud of daily life. We usually pop out at some point during our stay but on this occasion we just spent the three days lighting fires, eating & drinking! As usual we are sorry to be leaving this morning, we do hope to return soon.
C&M Worcestershire (Teds Hut January 2018)

Comments from our previous guests in 2017

First time here at Ted for our 9 year anniversary. Had the most wonderful time cooked pizza and steak, soaked in the hot tub. I cannot fault this Gem in any way… And to make it even better Tom asked me to Marry him!!! I will never forget our stay at Ted… till the next time.
K&M Avon (Teds Hut) December 2017

Absolutely stunning! The view of Glastonbury Tor is spectacular and the hot tub under the stars was magical. Will definitely be back! Thank you.
D&M (Teds Hut) November 2017

Lens Hut reduced our vast vocabulary down to one word repeated again & again for the first hour on arrival.
WOW! Of all the places that we’ve stayed this is definitely been our favourite. A beautiful space with a reminder to stop & enjoy the simple things in life.
A memorable weekend in a thoughtful & stunning crafted shepherds hut.
P&M Avon (Lens Hut) October 2017

We stayed at Ted’s Hut for our 1st wedding anniversary everything has been perfect. I have never been anywhere as peaceful and with such stunning views we love all the little touches thank you, Phil and Amanda, for making our break so special will be back!
H&G (Teds Hut) Dorset September 2017.

Our first ever stay in a shepherds hut and we couldn’t be more delighted!
So many special and cosy touches that make Ted a truly, magical break away. Love all the little touches and the vintage theme, along with the perfect colour scheme. We have thoroughly enjoyed our mini break from the fast paced world and we will recommend to everyone. Comfiest bed ever, loved the pizza oven and the hot tub under the stars, the weather has been up and down but that has not spoilt our time one bit. Has just been what we needed to relax in style, we did not want to leave! Many thanks Phil & Amanda this has been a wonderful break away from the norm, we will be back.

K&M (Teds Hut) Wales August 2017.

An amazing birthday treat! Couldn’t have asked for more.
Everything is so well thought out and all the little-added touches don’t go unnoticed. Incredible view, wildlife and peacefulness.
Thank f you for sharing the history which adds to the charm!
C&M (Lens Hut) Sussex July 2017

Thank you so much for another wonderful stay in Len we love Len! It’s been equally as relaxing to stay in the stunning Somerset countryside! We are going home today, we wish we could stay, totally chilled, thanks to you both and to Len. We’ve stayed on Lens site more this time and enjoyed the views, it’s been a great place to write my reports! We will be back for our hat- trick stays! Thanks again Len you’re the best.
A&R (Lens Hut) Cambridgeshire June 2017

This was our second visit to Ted just as fabulous as the first. On this visit, we were able to make more use of the hot tub and outdoor oven (due to high winds caused by Doris on a previous visit for a couple of nights. It is so peaceful relaxing in the hot tub under the stars with a pizza cooking in the oven!! We love everything about Ted and our three nights flew by it’s never enough. You have thought of everything and the welcoming touches waiting our arrival were a lovely surprise.
Thank you for another most wonderful peaceful stay.
C&M (Teds Hut) Worcestershire May 2017

Thanks for a lovely stay! Ted has everything you could ever need to have a great weekend way. We loved making stone baked pizza in the outside oven. We picked a great weekend with the lovely weather, so we made the most of the outside and managed to use the hot tub both nights.
K&k (Teds Hut) Hampshire April 2017

We’re back! Celebrating Jono’s birthday and now our engagement!
This is our favourite place to be by far! Thank you for our lovely weekend away and I’m sure we will be back soon love and best wishes.
H&J (Lens Hut) Staffordshire March 2017

Thank you for a perfect cosy break in Len’s Hut. Even storm Doris could not dampen our stay! P.s The hot tub was amazing.
M&C (Lens Hut) Hampshire February 2017

Arrived on Friday 13th filled us with trepidation. But as soon as Phil opened the door we knew this was going to be a fabulous weekend. It exceeded our expectations! The hot tub was such a joy with the air temperature at a chilly 5C. I have to thank my wife for her expertise in fire raising, within 3 hours we were on full steam at 38C! Thank you Phil & Amanda you have thought of everything. We forgot our playing cards and they were under the bed relief!
T&A (Teds Hut) Avon January 2017

Comments from our previous guests in 2016

We booked as a first couple’s getaway very stressed from commutes to London working. Wow! Everything is incredible. We’re so lucky to have a clear first-night sky. Minus degree temperature but one of the best sunsets I’ve ever witnessed. The hot tub was boiling to our surprise on even such a cold night the stars were out of this world! We will definitely be back.
G&A (Lens Hut) Kent December 2016

As we spend our last night here listing to music with the warm fire and the rain outside we are cosy and happy, thank you both so much for enabling us to experience that, we have been so lucky to stay in this lovely place.
M&M (Teds Hut) Hertfordshire November 2016

Bedegedig!!! (Welsh for fantastic!)
We had a truly fantastic time. Stunning location and the hot tub was amazing.
Every little thing was thought of, which meant a truly relaxing break.
A&E (Lens Hut) Wales October 2016

We’ve had an amazing few days here in Ted. It was such a lovely place. Ted is very well equipped and the hot tub is fab! Every detail is thought out and there are lots of quirky features.
C&R (Teds Hut) Worcestershire September 2016

WOW! Even better than we’d expected, every detailed is well thought out and the furnishings are perfect!
We came here for much needed “Us” time and have had just that.
High lights include watching shooting stars from the hot tub and seeing deer in the field. Thanks to Phil & Amanda for creating such an amazing place.

L&A Isle of Wight (Teds Hut) August 2016

A great location to explore from and truly relaxing experience. The hut is well thought out.
There is no better way to finish off the day than in the hot tub, watching the sun go down while listening to the owls and the bats swooping above!
F&B Buckingham July 2016

Thank-ewe so much for a truly unique holiday! Was a much needed relaxing breakaway! We couldn’t have asked for nicer weather! Would love to come back in the winter, I can imagine it with the stove lit it is very cosy indeed! Loved the hot tub!! I love although a “modern” hut you have kept the traditional feel with all your quirky vintage items. Was defo the perfect present! Now back to the reality of busy farming life.
E&M Hertfordshire June 2016

We couldn’t have had a more perfect setting for our celebration weekend. An engagement a 40th birthday.
We came back to find a chilled bottle of local fizz waiting for us thank you so much. The hut satisfied my need to constantly gaze at the Tor and Dave’s more manly need to make fire, the hot tub was amazing. Especially love your commitment to the environment too.
What a find! We will be back.
K&H Hampshire May 2016

This weekend break has been heaven for us, it was exactly what we needed, we actually found time to read books, play board games have BBQ’s, walks and relax in the most awesome hot tub on the planet, this really has been one of our best wedding anniversaries ever thank you so much.
S&J Somerset April 2016

Many pheasants, one owl, two deer, one hare, a truly idyllic setting, full moon, starlight night.
Thank you!!
C&C Avon March 2016

Dear Phil and Mandy, although we possibly chose the wettest and wildest weekend in history it didn’t stop us from having a fabulous time in Len’s Hut. It was so tranquil and cosy we will be sad to go (but we will be back) all the perfect little touches did not go unnoticed! Being here is going to be a very fond memory for years to come. Well defiantly be back when it’s drier, just try and keep us out of that hot tub.
S&P Avon February 2016

We couldn’t have been happier with Tor View Shepherds Hut, had a wonderful little break. The hut is set on the edge of a field overlooking dozens of sheep giving it a beautiful view especially at sunset. The interior of the hut is done to a very high standard with lots of neat cubby holes keeping everything you need for your stay hidden. The bed is extremely comfortable and we love the little wood burner which kept the place very toasty.
E&G Hampshire January 2016

Comments from our previous guests in 2015

Thank you so much for creating such a little gem in the Somerset countryside. We arrived in the dark and were blown away by the amazing views when we looked out of the window the following Morning! Len’s Hut is an amazing place with beautiful craftsmanship and attention to detail, we’ll definitely be visiting again Happy Xmas.
L&L Buckinghamshire December 2015

Arrived in the middle of hurricane Barney, very windy but once the stove was lit we were so cosy!
Len is small be perfectly formed and you could not want for more. Perfect birthday treat, thank you for a wonderful stay.
C & M Cheltenham November 2015

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.
K & A Norfolk October 2015

Thanks Phil and Amanda, I had an enjoyable stay in Len. He would be coming home with me if I could get him up the hill if only Molly Mae wasn’t a Mini car. So sadly for me I will have to come and visit him again. What a shame, lots of love.
J & E Lancashire September 2015

Like so many others a return visit. We really needed the break the luxury and tranquilly of Len’s Hut and this time we didn’t need to the log burner, but got heaps of use out of the new fire pit, what an inspired addition! Thanks again for a peaceful break away from the real world but with so much comfort and “all mod cons”.
S & D Buckinghamshire August 2015

Thank you for giving us the chance to stay in your amazing space! It was like coming home for us! Perfect location everything we could need or want. Really enjoyed the fire pit & the stove last night which gave Len a warm cosy glow. Will definitely be coming again.
(Probably the best place we stayed in since living on our boat brilliant little haven)
D&T Hampshire July 2015

A truly wonderful place you have created here, with everything you could possibly want. The hut was more than we’d expected; the books and maps kept us occupied and helped us find Maesbury Castle, inspired by the bedside Tor photo! Thanks for having us, we certainly hope to return to this idyllic spot soon.
P&T Kent June 2015

Had a fantastic birthday treat in your hut and have spent many happy hours designing one for my own garden!! Would love to come back and experience it all again with some sunshine – can only imagine idyiling away time on the steps with a glass in hand. We both think you’re given a huge amount of consideration to comfort and are inspired.

We have really enjoyed our stay. Great hut and extremely well thought out with everything you could want and more. The reason for our visit was due to us thinking of putting a hut in our own garden. You have truly inspired us and we will definitely be looking into this further.

Comments from our previous guests in 2014

A birthday break. What a wonderful place. Len has everything needed. It’s a very special place to stay. The views are stunning .It’s a little bit of heaven on earth. The Christmas tree and crackers, what a lovely touch. Hopefully we will be back for another visit.
J&M Warwickshire December 2014

WOW! Absolutely F-A-N-T-A-S-T-I-C.
It’s not a hut it’s a Tardis, we loved everything about it and we are totally blown away as to how much you have packed into this small space. The weather has been wet and windy, but we have been warm and snug as bugs inside Len’s Hut to hear the owls is lovely. The little touches make this such a special place.
M&C Somerset November 2014

We loved the time we spent at Len’s Hut. Everything catered for and all in perfect places. The wind & rain meant the hut shook & rattled which we loved. Didn’t want to leave!

We went to the Mendip inn – which I think has recently been re-furb and the food was excellent. Fireworks in Shepton Mallet on Saturday were amazing then we returned to a shepherds pie and movie. Perfect.
R&S London October 2014

Thank you so much for a wonderful stay on our wedding Anniversary, peace and quiet for a few days!! We’ve walked into Wells, had a look around, tea, cake and a bus back all good fun and a break from the norm. Keep up the great Len’s hut and very best wishes.

Completely blown away by the beauty of Len’s Hut. The amount of thought and effort gone into it is unreal. Words can’t describe how much I’ve enjoyed my short time here everything is perfect.
M&L Worcestershire August 2014

A superb and idyllic place to spend our 7th wedding anniversary, which is traditionally marked by a gift of “wool”. Len’s Hut made the perfect “wool-linked” gift and has given us some lovely memories through the next 7 years! Thank you for a really romantic and beautifully presented shepherds hut.

V&K Kent June 2014

A relaxing and unique break. Would have liked to stay longer weather great, hut had everything we needed, great seeing deer in the far field along with other wildlife. Leaving refreshed and hope to return soon.
H&M Staffordshire May 2014

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.

Thank you for the card and the sheep lolly and the flowers were a lovely touch. We visited Tyntesfield House, Clevedon House, Clevedon Pier, Wells and Cheddar and of course purchased some cheese to take home.

We will recommend you to friends and family.

P.S Loved the hot water bottle cover

Comments from our previous guests in 2013

Had a very peaceful stay. Loved snuggling on the day bed reading and contemplating. Time to unwind and relax and ponder the year before Christmas arrives.
A great place to observe the seasons and lovely to be able to watch the birds on the feeder and hedges.
C Gloucestershire December 2013

We’ve loved our stay at Len’s Hut, especially all the vintage enamel! Brilliant touch! The bed was incredibly comfortable, the hut was warm cosy and the tea was very tasty!!

The hut is very well planned, we loved finding out where everything was stored & working out where to put away our luggage. Shower & bathroom are great, and we made some lovely tasty meals in the oven.

We had and a lot of fun with the log burner and it made it almost too toasty inside! It was fun to wake up & see the cows out of the window and to hear owls at night. A wonderful, relaxing start to our marriage! Thanks so much!

R&A Northampton October 2013

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.

J&S Somerset September 2013

Lens hut is epically amazing. We had the best night’s sleep ever and woke up to an incredible view of the Tor. We were blown away with your attention to detail and pre-emptive consideration. The perfect way to help the stress of city melt away. We can’t wait to come back.

R&J Dorset September 2013

Lens Hut really is something quite special. Just to repeat what many other people have said,
every little detail has been thought about to make a comfortable and luxurious little bolt hole!
We walked through the fields to the Mendip Inn (good food) and Shepton Mallet lovely little deli selling local produce, Highly recommend the Oakhill Inn best steak I’ve ever had! We will definitely be back.
