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

My partner and I stayed in the Shepherds hut, it was converted brilliantly with thoughtful touches. The garden area was perfect to have a BBQ and sit and have a cider or two! Top marks for a lovely breakfast it really did keep me going all day! Thank you so much for a perfect weekend and we will be coming... 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

If you're expecting a standard B&B then this isn't the accommodation for you, but if you want something a little different (or even eccentric) with privacy and in a lovely location close to Porlock, with a garden to sit outside then this is for you. Not sure why the previous reviewer couldn't sleep as it was one of the quietest... More

We are a family of 5 and stayed at this studio. The Eco loo was interesting and the location was good but unfortunately the Studio (an old barn originally?) was the worst place we have ever stayed because it smelled of damp, I suspected mould, even with the doors open. We would have left immediately but it was too late... More
