We had a great weekend in the shepherds hut, very clean and tidy. Michael is a friendly host who cannot do enough for you. The English breakfast made from local produce was excellent. Michael recommended a pub in the village for eating out and we were not disappointed. Overall it is a quiet place to stay for the weekend, and... More

Nice Sheppard's Hut and peaceful, quite location. Great for walking off into the beautiful hilly woods and Moor nearby. Great full English breakfast, with sausages and bacon from the small farm. All topped off by a friendly and helpful host made for a nice short stay here.

Thank you for a wonderful 3 night stay in the Shepherd's Hut. The hut was beautiful, with a powerful shower and comfy bed. We enjoyed the peace and quiet, and for two of the evenings had a bbq and had a few drinks in the evening sun outside the hut in the garden. Breakfast was lovely and Michael was a... More

Just returned from a jolly lovely stay in the Shepherd's hut at Doverhay Farm. The hut was clean and comfortable and we slept like logs. Talking of logs there was a plentiful supply for the woodburner. The owner, Michael, was warm and welcoming and knocked out the most amazing cooked breakfast, taken in his delighful dining room. The bangers were... More

Highly recommend staying in the Studio accommodation on Doverhay Farm. The room itself was light and spacious with an incredibly comfy double bed. Tea/coffee facilities, mini fridge and a small T.V are provided and the eco loo and shower are situated in a shed next door. The eco loo was fine to use (think posh festival) and the shower hot;...

The Shepherds Hut was brilliantly converted with everything you could need. The home cooked breakfast is to die for and the owner could not do enough for us. Dover Hay Farm is brilliantly located for walks on the moors, a trip to the beach, or a browse around Porlock itself which is a 2 minute walk away and has just... More
